Question about Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
I have a turntable (vector research vt-200) that I inherited from the garage that has no service manual. It's been working fine for years, but since my recent move I've been having a problem with the speed. It's turning just slightly too fast. It's set to the 33, the pitch is properly placed. I've seen a lot of "adjust the motor screw" answers online, but I have no idea if this is even the problem and I've been relatively unsuccessful with breaking it down to find said screw. Any advice would be appreciated. I really don't want to junk this turntable unless I have to! Thanks!

SOURCE: Sony PS-LX250H speed problem
I have a different Sony model (PS-LX-150H) that had a similar problem. I hadn't used it in awhile, and then when I did, I noticed the speed problem.
IF your PS-LX250 is like my PS-LX150, there are small speed adjustment screws accessible from the bottom of the unit. On mine, the two adjustment screws were labeled - one for 33rpm, the other for 45 rpm. Basically I just fiddled a bit with them using a very small precision screw driver until I could verify that I had reached 33 rpm (I used a stopwatch and literally counted the number of rotations/minute after making adjustments.)
Now it sounds right!

More than likely it is a faulty drive IC (Integrated Circuit). If so, your out of luck, because most parts for this unit are discontinued, with the exception of the belt.
There really isn't much else you can do. Will probably cost too much to repair, if you can find someone who can repair it.
Sorry couldn't be of much more help.

Make shure that is a 50Hz turntable. If you connect a 60 Hz turntable in a 50 Hz system, the result is aprox 28 RPM in the 33 RPM position/
