Question about Pioneer PL-990 Turntable

1 Answer

I have replaced the belt on my PL-990 and the pitch is off

It was off before, I replaced the belt, and I still can't get it set right. The pitch is all over the place. I have difficulty using the strobe dots to stay still.

Hiya, you can try cleaning the belt with iso alcohol or meths and also the platter and motor spindle. Make sure clen, flip the belt over, if that fails try a new belt, and if still not then the fault is electronic.

Best of luck

My pioneer PL990 turntable, the pitch wavers.


try cleaning the inner ring on the underside of the actual turntable platter and also the motor spindle using isoprynol alcohol or use neat clear spirits like bacardi/vodka with cotton wool etc. if black residue comes off either the platter or the motor spindle that will be residue from the old belt that could cause the fluctuation in speed? good luck.

Lift off the platter mat, then lift off the platter from the spindle - gently.
Underneath the platter is a sub-platter around which you place the belt - it should be held there by the stretch of the belt while you turn the platter back up the right way and place it back on the spindle.
Turning the platter by hand, you should see a small pulley come into view through one of the holes in the platter. You then stretch the belt slightly so that it slides over the pulley. Take care not to twist the belt while doing this.
