Question about Sony PS-LX250 Turntable

2 Answers

The turntable won't turn off.

It appears the "on" button is jammed in, and the "off" button won't work. Both buttons feel sort of loose. My wife hit it with a tennis ball while playing with the dog.

Re: The turntable won't turn off.

The ole' wife hit the turntable with a tennis ball while playing with the dog accident. Very familiar with it. You can try a couple of different things...

1) Go inside the turntable, and see if you can fix it. Often times, there is a spring or bearing underneath the button, which has come dislodge. Just a matter of getting in there and putting it back.

2) See if some electrical contact spray does the trick. This stuff works great. and it's also available at most Radio Shack's now.

3) Just unplug it when u want to turn it off. Although, this is not really recommended, as your unit will be prone to slight surges and sparks - unless you just connect it to a power surge protector with a switch on it.

If all else fails, bring it to a service location for assistance. Shouldn't cost too much to fix, unless... the switches underneath the buttons are broken and need to be replaced. The switches are inexpensive ($5-10 part), but they'll get you on labor.

Fuse issue. If it were me, Id turn it off, ground my self, open it up and look for fuses that have blown. replace. should sort it out. If not, its an more serious Ac/Dc issue.

AL-A1 turntable won t turn

take the platter & belt back off, then check to see if the motor spins, if it does the belts the wrong size or put on wrong, if it doesn't spin then you better get your butter & jam out, to put on your toast.

So i was spinning on my wife's stanton str8 100's and the pitch control button is stuck. how can i fix it?

Are you referring to a speed selector switch or a pitch control? When you say it's stuck, are you referring to a control you push on or off, or something that turns? For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

A few years ago I purchased a Philco capital turntable CD cassette. One day my wife was listening and for some reason she pressed the standby button, ever since then nothing will work. The power does come...

maybe the button when being pressed isn't releasing through a bad button . it would make sense that when the button is pushed it stops all functions so if you r able to disconect the button from the wires tape the wires together to create a closed circuit and see if it works personally i would take it to a repair facility for the safety factor of messing around with it but if u want try it

I have just bought 2 1200 mk2 ,the seller has told me the start/stop buttons where powered by a mixer and will either need to be reconnected this way or reconfigured is this a problem??

who ever told you that is a ****, start n stop are tied into the power of the turntables motor etc. if you plug the turntable in turn it on n hit start. it should start. if not who ever sold it to you made a BS lie to get rid of them cause the motor was burnt out. start n stop have nothing to do with the mixer what so ever. so try just hooking up the turntable and turn the power on. see if anything lights up then his the start button and see if the platter starts to move if not its your motor.
