It seems something may have come loose over time or history, but you will have to delve inside to see what it is. It sounds as though the fault should be obvious.

If you do not want to do this, a repair shop should have no problem. I assume that the deck is working ok otherwise.

I am not familiar with your specific model, but varying speed is usualy the first symptom of a bad belt. Look at the drive belt. If it seems kind of loose ( there should be some stretch, but it should also snap back quickly), it may need to be replaced.

Try that first. If that does not resolve it, let me know and we'll look further at other possible causes.

How do I adjust the speed of a Sony LX250H turntable? The answer is not in my manual.

Presumably you mean correcting the speed to play 45 and 33 correctly?
Some turntables have the speed control(s) as a preset(s) built into the base on the underside of the unit. Often covered with a sticker. You simply remove the sticker and stick a small screwdriver in the thing and turn it.
Others have the preset inside on a circuit board, got to by removing the bottom of the turntable. Others have it built into the motor itself.
You should replace the belt first if the speed is slow on both 45 and 33, before adjusting the motor speed.

My Sony PS LX 430 turntable will only revolve 3.5 times and the needle is set to high to make contact with the vinyl

The speed controls might be underneath the turntable base. Sometimes covered up with white stickers. On other models you have to remove the bottom side to get access to the PC board, where the controls can be found. On cheaper models the speed controls are on the motor itself.

I have a sony ps-lx10 turntable, and want to connect it to a non-Sony system. The power ribbon needs to be modified. How do I do that?

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.

Need a new stylus for my turntable SONY PS-LX250H and cannot seemed to find a new one. where can I get a new one at.

Assuming it is the original ATN-3600 cartridge, a simple web search for "sony ps-lx250h replacement stylus" or "atn3600 stylus" locates some.

If the cartridge is something different you should search for that model's stylus, not one for the TT itself.

My Sony PS-LX250H Turntable suddenly started playing records too fast for both 33 and 45 speeds. Any ideas on how to fix???

If this is a belt drive then most of these speed increases are caused by the belt being in the wrong position. The belt could be faulty and my need to be replaced. Otherwise it could be due to a power supply problem, such as a faulty regulator to the supply of the motor. A check on the voltage to the motor will determine this. Assuming you know what the correct voltage should be! Of course with luck it will be higher than the motor is supposed to run at.

My sony pslx250h turnable belt was ordered and i can't find the repair book to repair it.

Pretty simple fix. Remove the mat, remove the turntable, install new belt on bottom of turntable hub. Place turntable back onto spindle. rotate turntable so you can see motor pulley. Stretch the belt from turntable hub over motor pulley, replace mat, enjoy.

Put a brand new drive belt on my sony PS-LX250H and the sound

If the belt is installed correctly (around the center ring on the underside of the metal platter & around the motor post), try adjusting the SW screw on the underside of the unit that apparently fine-tune adjusts speed. It fixed the speed on my turntable - more info/instructions on it are posted under Mocamom1's question & solutions regarding PS-LX250H speed adjustment.

The motor for the unit might be dying out. There really aren't any other factors that control the speed/rpm of these belt driven models. So if the belt didn't do the trick, you will have to take it to a service center to test the motor.
