Rumble from platter when all pitches are turned down

I used to own a brand new pair of vestax pdx2000 and never had any problems, loved them. Recently though I bought a second hand pair, little scratched so have probably been well played. Anyway, when you turn both pitches down to the slowest pitch, you can feel a low rumble from the platter. Is this serious or just a case of wear n tear. Please best advise as I would'nt want to get rid of them if can fix or live with. I don't play on the slow pitch anyway but will it get worse as well.

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:)

The platter keeps spinning backwards any advise ?

Its internal motor control circuit control logic has the trouble. The control IC alongwith the retulator transistor should be replaced. OK.

Vestax PDX 2000 motor going crazy problem

hey, it will work with the tape solution but you gotta pay attention to the light metallic circle which is used by the light sensor (the small black one with cables on it) to estimate motor movement - first time i opened it and did the tape thing to the black rubber circle i eventually touched the light metallic circle and i think that caused it not working for me too
the light metallic circle must be totally clean and plain, do your best, but be sensible

Vestax pdx 2000 motor problem

This is a really common fault with this model of TT. I've just repaired a pair of them with the same problem.

You need to remove the bottom cover of the deck then take the round cover off the bottom of the motor assembly. Be really careful with that, delicate sensitive stuff inside. Once you remove the screws use a small flat blade screwdriver to lift it free of the rubbery glue that seals and holds it in place.

Once removed, in the centre of that cover is a small black rubber cirlce about 6mm in diameter that the shaft of the motor rotates on. The problem causing all of that erratic platter movement is with this small black circle.

The solution I found was to use double sided tape to hold this part in place. This serves two purposes. First, to stop the part from moving off its required location, Secondly, to raise the part up slightly from the bracket that it sits on. Layer the double sided tape up so its the around the same thickness as the small black rubber circle. Then place the black cirlcle into its original location bedding it firmly into the tape.

A tiny small dolop of grease on the end of the motor shaft. Replace the motor and bottom covers. Bingo! The decks a-go-go!

Happy mixing!

Vestax PDX200 platter keeps changing direction

Hi everyone,

I had exactly same problem with my Vestax pdx 2000 mk2 TUNETABLE.

The solution involves some careful screwdriving but is fairly simple....
You need to take the motor out and carefully take it to pieces, the problem is caused by a tiny piece that needs to be put back into place. Of course you will loose your warranty but its cheaper and faster then getting new motor or sending to repair.

If u need help don't hasitate to email me:
i can explain every step and send u step by step pics of the repair.
