The platter needs a drop of oil as the platter and motor shaft is a machined fit, Via brass upside down v as the platter will be reversed ie: a A WITH NO LINE . You can place two plastic wedge shaped blocks ,one on each side of the platter with even pressure and work up.

Platter is rubbing against sides of turntable, making a grating sound. How can I fix it?

Remove the plater with the two screws and bow the two pieces of metal where you screw your platter on a bit to above. If the ain\'t it , check the screws where you engine is connected with on the inside and otherwise the rottor holder ain\'t straight anymore, so just inscrew the backplate of the motor , heat that shitty glue , which can be a hell to remove and the pieve of the where the rotor spins on , needs a couple of tick with little hammer in the middle , which will raise the rotor and you have more space.... don\'t hit it to hard and only till it\'s straight. gr richard

Clibrate pitch Vestax PDX d3S

It's a variable , since it's depended on more parts, but just clean it first and gently turn it until the platter moves correct,assuming you
mean to correct the variable resistor(potmeter) . If the value was everywhere the same, then you don't need a variable resistor:)

Re: Power Problem

More than likely the power transformer fried. If so, it will need to be replaced. You might also want to check the fuse. Some of the PDX units have fuses on the rear (where the RCA cables connect)... some don't. I've also seen some that have a fuse on the inside of the turntable, underneath the turntable platter... some don't. If your's has a fuse, see if it has burned out. If so, just replace.

If not, then the only other thing that would affect power on the PDX is the power transformer, and only a qualified service tech should replace this for you.

Platter not spinning properly

Make sure the platter is seated correctly. Lift it off, and set it back down. Also check to see that there is no debris or foreign matter stuck underneath the platter or where the platter sits.

Check to make sure the platter itself is not bent or warped. Do this by removing the platter (lift up), and then put it on a flat table/surface. Look at it from the side. Is it warped?

Hope this helps
