SOURCE: Opening Pioneer PL-600 turntable

Dear pap 55,
The feet are removable, can be open. To check the dead set you donot need to open it. Remove the power cord from the wall socket, check the contnuity with multimeter of the two pin plug after switching on power switch of the system.

Magnetic phono cartridges like the one on your pioneer has an output of about .005 Volts, the standard inputs are looking for 1 to 2 volts for fulol out put, the phono preamp will step up the output voltage to 1 volt so you can play it thru a non phono input like Aux, tape or tuner.

Radio shack sells cheap ones and you will hear what you pay for.

I sell turntables and audio gear, check out www.soundsciencecat.com

Good Luck,

SOURCE: pioneer pl-200 turntable one channel is dull and muffled

I think we need to do more diagnosis. Did you try swapping the channel cables Left-to-Right so you're sure it is in the TT and not in your Phono preamp?
If it's still in the TT and always on the same channel with two different cartridges you probably have a wire problem in the tonearm/shell or interface between them.

SOURCE: Pioneer pl 50 turntable it

Try changing out the capacitor on the underside of the platter. They will lose their rated value over time.......
The schematic shows a 1000 volt rating. I have three that I am referbing and all of them came from Pioneer with a 450 volt CAP.
Try replace it with one that is rated at least 450 volts.
Also - the closer the tolerance the better. See if you can find one that has a K rating, meaning it is +- 10%. The M rated ones are +-20%.

SOURCE: Where to get 12 volt power supply for Pioneer PL-203AZ Turntable?

+ is on center pin, and the current consumption is low, not more than 200mA. A 12V wall-wart will do fine.

I don't know what needle is needed for my pioneer turntable PL-X88Z?


You just need to look at the cartridge and look for the make and model number. Once you have that you can search Google for it and the stylus will also show up.

Very odd! Sounds like it's not fitting in right. Are you sure that you have the right type of stylus for the cartridge? If in doubt replace the entire cartridge & Stylus. If it still plays up then it's in your amp after that course of action.

I have Pioneer pl202az record player.. need help finding to replace the broken needle..


It is seldom worth just replacing a needle. It's not much more expensive to replace the whole cartridge. Easily available online - search by make and model number on Amazon

I suddenly heard alot of distortion when playing the Pioneer PL-990 turntable. Wonder if replacing the needle may take care of the problem.


Depends on the circumstances. Is it only when you play it loud? Air- or room-borne vibrations will feed back through the TT to the speakers. Keep the volume down to avoid it.

If you call the stylus a 'needle', replacing it maybe beyond your capabilities. There are lots of reasons for TT sound to be less than perfect and arbitrarily replacing things can do more harm or introduce new problems. Take it to someone experienced and equipped to evaluate the issue.

Tonearm balance, antiskating, dirty stylus, feedback.
