Question about Vestax PDX-2300 Turntable

2 Answers

The spin of the tonearme doesn't works softly.

I have two Vestax pdx-2300 mk II pro, and one of both has a little problem, but that becomes a serious problem, because i can't play any record.
The spin of the tonearm has a little resistance that affects her rotation. I can't play  any record  without  skips because the needle can't follow the source of the record smoothly due to that resistance in the tonearm.

I was thinking in put some oil into the axis of the tonearm, but i don't know if that is a good idea.

Another question: Where can i find the schematics o manual repair of this turntable?

thank  you very much!

Hex screw hole under the tonearm you have to seperate the tonearm from sitting on the base, then tighten back down homie

No a good idea, and sketmatic wont help you unless you plan on soldering. I would lift the tonearm and see how far it goes inward until you feel resistance. Maybe the weight need to be adjusted. Is the turntable on a flat surface? Is there anything obstructing the path of the counter weight?

keep me posted.

Vestax pdx 2000s. Where can I get tonearm counterweights? I cannot find any online many thanks!!

I recommend you search for just tonearm counterweights. Rather than your make of deck. You will then have to compare them to see if it will fit your arm. Amazon do have them for different makes. Vestax might be just a name given to a shop brand, the deck itself being made by a more well known company.

My vestax turntable doesn't spinning

Well since i read it often and have such a table myself, it,probably like with technics turntables. A lack of maintenance and since you s ratch with it it , only never replacing the powersupply capacitors, which are really good , but it depends all on the pressure you use .
Open the unit , check the capacitors, which is 10sec work , offcourse check the fuses and thermistor , but do you see a light if you put it on and do you hear crackles when you spin the platter and have you ever ipend the motor and clean and lubricated the motor?
A lot of peoples with the 2000 blame the motor and transformer for the thing do stop, without never have opened the unit in 14 years. It's a perfect motor and powersupply, but first open the supereasy tt
checking the obvious things. But you have to agree, it's a nice scratch unit, als the 3000 mix, which has way better abs plastic and feet, scratches better then my mk-5. And replace the plastic in the feet for mettal. I see a lot of guys with broken feet and a whole deck with scratches, but though i agree that the height adjustment, piece of far to hard plastic toyshit, most peoples use the pitch far too high,
But in 14 years stuff breaks

Numark ttx shortage

Shortage?, no the vestax pdx 2000mk2 has shortage, the numark is not a well build unit from the. inside. I just can buy the ttx in store. Which is inside mostly oem%#}#%. Buy a te hnics , refurbish it yourself and tkake the kabusa straight/s-shape option, then atleast you have a proper tonearm and unit, but scewing arm together is very bad for your stiffness and the s-shape is very bad . Just but a s shape board and straight arm. You miss the accuracy and stiffness, which aint great on a te hnics also and the connection is a sad built for the money. I purchased half a year ago a vestax pdx 3000 mix and that unit is way better built then the the 2000 pro with the j arm

and it\'s new from the inside.

My mk-5 is also new, costing me 1000 euro and then i have a pgd. micro electronics. The average technics mk 2 is worn out stuf and a waste of money and the refurbished ones, ain\'t real refurbished. Buy a pioneer, then atleast it\'s new, with oem parts inside offcourse. Or you have to live in the netherlands and i can tell you what to need to need to renew on a technics, which are all caps, a lot a resistors , the two var resistors, tonearmcables and removing that stupid standard rca system and put nice rca\'s on a plate on it and the feet for new feet or just isokinets, since used technics have no usefull rubber anymore in the feet.

How do you take the plastic clip off that hold the tone arm

Well be very carefull, since they breal soooo easily. You can get if bu unscrewing the imbuscat the side and the internal you desolder your tonearm wires and with some effort you can pull out the pivot after unscrewing the the height adjustment screw at the the side. They are crappy things and i just glue them together woth some thin bare thin wire to keep it in place, after that i use some kevlar/carbon fibre with the right glue, but not a lot of glue holds on it.... annoying part.

Hi, have been given a vestax pdx 2300 turntable and the motor is acting crazy, do i replace motor or is it an internal roblem?

Is there a speed control switch? UNPLUG and try spraying contact cleaner into the speed control. IF that doesn't solve it, then back to the manufacturer.

Vestax pdx-2000mkiipro keeps blowing internal fuses

You have a short in your unit, and you will need professional assistance in determining the cause. You might also want to try a different outlet. If it fails, then you'll need to bring it to a service center for repair.
