Power supply required

Hi Guys, I have a Sony PS-LX40P turntable. The old Sony stack system has recently died after many years of stirling service and it had a small outlet socket to power the turntable. Do you know if I can get a new direct transformer to power up the turntable? Any help much appreciated. Graham Hancock (Still using vinyl!!!!!)

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: what voltage required to power a sony subwoofer


I just got one of these units, the SONY SS-WG990.
The RCA cable is direct conection to the speaker.
It requires external AMP.
The other cable is just for the system switch and LED.
If you just have this unit, all you need is an AMP to
feed it.

Can't get the darn to work

Remove the drive belt and see if the turntable spins, if it does the drive motor is faulty, if it doesn't then (if this is a new turntable) it's possibly got a locking device to hold the turn table steady during shipping.

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.

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.

I have a Sony direct drive PS-X5 turntable. I have to turn the amp up all the way to hear any sound.

If you're not connecting the TT to a PHONO preamp or a receiver with a built-in PHONO connection the signal from it will be too weak to get any meaningful volume PLUS the RIAA equalization curve required for flat phono playback won't be applied so it will sound very 'tinny'.

Google it.

Get electronics that can handle old-school turntables.

Ps-lx 430 1 speaker gives low volume. Otherwise speakers work with other components

This is an old-school turntable so it requires a PHONO input on the amplifier (or a Phono Preamplifier). It will not produce either enough volume or the correct frequency response without it. Google Phono RIAA

Cannot power up turntable

There's not much to a turntable power supply. The most common fault is the power switch is broken. An internal fuse could have failed, the transformer dead and other power supply faults. You might want to take the bottom off and have a look inside.

Sony Stereo turntable system PS-X55 Power failure

i used to own one of these? had it for 28 years and it was brilliant but temperamental during use. it sounds like your direct drive motor has given up the ghost to speak? its unlikely you will be able to purchase a replacement due to its age? if you in the market for a classic retro quality replacement try this company?
