First of all you would need to know 2 things. One the voltage supply needed to run the turntable. Two the voltage outputed by the non Sony system. If these don't match you could have a problem. For example if the Sony Turntable runs of say a 6 volt supply and the system puts out say 12 volts. You will damage the turntable. Chances are unless the non Sony system was actual made by Sony under a different name then the two supplys will not match. If you can connect up the two the Turntable will either run slow or fast. If the output supply is only 6 volts and the turntable motor works on 9 volts or higher you will never get it to run at the correct speed.
If you work out the two work off a similar voltage, you need only connect the plus wires together and the negative wires together and the motor should turn. Most turntables have speed presets, for each speed. You will need to find them and adjust them to get the speed right on each speed.

    Thanks. The wire ribbon coming out of the Sony turntable has a 5-pin adapter at the end. This plugs into an integrated Sony receiver. Ithe turntable has separate patch cords for audio. I was thinking I could just add a plug to the power supply, but it sounds as thought you think it runs off DC and not AC. So, I can't just plug it into the wall. Should I buy a DC adapter?

    5 wires and extra for the audio you say? The only thing I can think it would have five wires on a power connector is two power supplies for each speed. With a switch inside the turntable switching between the two. That would make it hard to get the turntable to run at both speeds as there would be no speed presets to adjust, if you had only say a 12 DC supply going to it. You need to determine why there are Five wires instead of 3 and what comes out of each wire, before buying any adapters. And yes it will be a DC supply.

If your turntable was originally connected with a flat black ribbon cable between the individual units, you will indeed have a few issues. Of course it best to use it with the correct unit, but that cable coming from the turntable, will need to be modified, once you know the pin out of the cable. Once you know that, you can fashion a new modified cable to make the connection to your new amp/receiver, etc.If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about a repair, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Turntables Usually Work Out Fine With A 12v Dc Power Supply.
But You Have To Check What Is Ground And What Is The Positive Supply. check For Ground With A Multimeter To The Platter For The Negative. Other Things To Look For Is It A Ribbon Connector
Or A Dc Power Jack From The Turntable,and The Signal Leads. hope this helps

SOURCE: how do i replace belt on lx250h?

Not sure about yours, but some of these one lifts the rubber pad to get access to the belt through holes in the platter when you are re-installing to get the belt back on the hub it runs on. One usually has to lift the platter off to get the belt around the center hub and the motor pulley first..

You can probably find the belts online with a Google search.

Power supply Sony PS-LX10


Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum.

The Operating and Install Guides are here...

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&externalId=C310321&fes=true&mdl=PSLX250H

Follow this procedure to install the belt on the turntable.
  1. Lift up on the dust cover [FIG. 1] and remove it from the turntable base [FIG. 1].
  2. Remove the rubber mat [FIG. 1] from the platter [FIG. 1].
  3. Lift the platter straight up off the spindle [FIG. 1].
  4. Slip the drive belt around the under side of the platter [FIG. 2]. IMPORTANT: Line up the ribbon that is attached to the belt with the square opening near the edge of the platter .
  5. Place the platter back on the spindle .
  6. Spin the platter so the square opening on the platter is over the motor pulley [FIG. 1].
  7. Stretch the drive belt [FIG. 3] over the motor pulley by pulling the attached ribbon [FIG. 3].
  8. Remove the ribbon from the drive belt .
  9. Reinstall the rubber mat and the dust cover .

I am assembling a sony turntable and don't understand step 3. Using the ribbon, loop the drive belt around the motor pulley. PS-LX300USB model Thanks


Manuals and belt instructions here:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=PSLX300USB&LOC=3

You would handle the belt by the ribbon instead of bare fingers so your finger oils wouldn't contaminate the belt. You stretch the loop of the belt over the drive pulley between the flanges to hook it.

Have you though of using a pre-amp? You'll probably need to go turntable --> pre-amp --> soundcard input to get acceptable sound
