Sony PS-LX250H turntable won't turn

We wanted to play an old lp last week, and haven't used the turntable for awhile and it wouldn't (turn). The belt is in place, but it just won't turn. It has power, we checked that thoroughly. Any suggestions?

Re: Sony PS-LX250H turntable won't turn

I have the same trouble so I gave it a push and after manually spinning the table and then putting through it's sequence a few times it worked fine!....but now it's started to run at a speed half way between 33 and 45rpm. To see if its just a stuck motor, remove the table lift the arm move it over so it's trying to drive then just rotate the pulley clockwise between finger and thumb.

The turntable runs great for half the way throw the lp and then it speeds up to a 45 speed

Any infinitesimal change in belt temperature would not cause such a change in speed. The speed of your turntable is governed by an electronic circuit and this is where the trouble is.

The cost of a repair is going to be mostly labor which may exceed the value of the value of the turntable.

Sony PS-LX250H Player arm won't set down to play

Have you made sure the "up/down" button is not depressed? It's the furthest button to the right of the player if you are looking at it head-on. If it is depressed, it will cause the needle to simply hover above the spinning record. A good thing if you want to "pause" your musical experience, but not much help if you are trying to enjoy some sonic sensations.

Sony Belt Drive Turntable Platen speed

Check for grease on the platter or anywhere in the mechanism. Sometimes somebody has messed around with the speed preset, there might be two. You could try adjusting them. Sometimes they are found on the underside of the turntable, covered up, or they will be on the PC board of the deck.

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.

My Sony PS-LX250H is all of the sudden playing too slow with a 33

Not sure what made it happen all of a sudden, but you might want to check out Mocamom1 's question related to PS-LX250H speed & the attached solutions. You may just need to adjust the SW screw on the underside of the unit (worked for mine that was playing everything at 35 1/4!)

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!
