SOURCE: sony ps-lx2 turntable clicks when spinning

It seems something may have come loose over time or history, but you will have to delve inside to see what it is. It sounds as though the fault should be obvious.

If you do not want to do this, a repair shop should have no problem. I assume that the deck is working ok otherwise.

i used to own one of these? had it for 28 years and it was brilliant but temperamental during use. it sounds like your direct drive motor has given up the ghost ............so to speak? its unlikely you will be able to purchase a replacement due to its age? if you in the market for a classic retro quality replacement try this company?

Check for grease on the platter or anywhere in the mechanism. Sometimes somebody has messed around with the speed preset, there might be two. You could try adjusting them. Sometimes they are found on the underside of the turntable, covered up, or they will be on the PC board of the deck.

Have you though of using a pre-amp? You'll probably need to go turntable --> pre-amp --> soundcard input to get acceptable sound

Adjust pitch not working on PS T1 Sony


Try looking underneath the turntable. There might be two speed presets one for 45 and one for 33. They could be covered up by stickers.

How do I adjust the speed of a Sony LX250H turntable? The answer is not in my manual.


Presumably you mean correcting the speed to play 45 and 33 correctly?
Some turntables have the speed control(s) as a preset(s) built into the base on the underside of the unit. Often covered with a sticker. You simply remove the sticker and stick a small screwdriver in the thing and turn it.
Others have the preset inside on a circuit board, got to by removing the bottom of the turntable. Others have it built into the motor itself.
You should replace the belt first if the speed is slow on both 45 and 33, before adjusting the motor speed.

The speed control switch does not affect the play speed of the turntable. It only turns at 45 RPM (switch open.)


It's likely the belt has come off the correct position. It would need to be adjusted. One reason it's moved is that it needs replacing, because it's too slack.

I have a sony ps-lx10 turntable, and want to connect it to a non-Sony system. The power ribbon needs to be modified. How do I do that?


First of all you would need to know 2 things. One the voltage supply needed to run the turntable. Two the voltage outputed by the non Sony system. If these don't match you could have a problem. For example if the Sony Turntable runs of say a 6 volt supply and the system puts out say 12 volts. You will damage the turntable. Chances are unless the non Sony system was actual made by Sony under a different name then the two supplys will not match. If you can connect up the two the Turntable will either run slow or fast. If the output supply is only 6 volts and the turntable motor works on 9 volts or higher you will never get it to run at the correct speed.
If you work out the two work off a similar voltage, you need only connect the plus wires together and the negative wires together and the motor should turn. Most turntables have speed presets, for each speed. You will need to find them and adjust them to get the speed right on each speed.

My stanton t50 turntable plays too fast even when the pitch fader is at the slowest speed


You need to calibrate your pitch control. This requires a small precision screwdriver (similar to something you would repair eye glasses with). If you look under the turntable where the pitch control is you will find 2 small holes, 1 marked 33 and 1 marked 45. Turn the turntable on and set the pitch control lever to zero pitch. While the turntable is spinning insert the screw driver into the pitch calibration hole under the turntable and twist the potentiometer back and forth until the turntable pitch is zero (I believe clockwise is faster, counterclockwise is slower as you look up from the bottom of the turntable). This is a fine tune adjustment and will not require much turning to adjust the speed (1 or 2 mm's) either way should start to bring you into zero pitch. The platter speed can be verified by the little dots on the rim of the platter. They should appear stationary in strobe light on the power switch when you are at zero pitch. When you are adjusting the speed you will observe the dots on the platter rim spinning clockwise and then counterclockwise as you adjust the fine tuning. Fine tune the speed until the dots appear stationary and you will be back to zero pitch. You have to adjust the turntable at both speeds 33 and 45 using the correct fine tuning hole under the turntable. My personal experience is it is easiest to do this with 2 people. 1 person to hold the turntable level and running, while the other adjusts the fine tuning. Hope this helps.

Put a brand new drive belt on my sony PS-LX250H and the sound


If the belt is installed correctly (around the center ring on the underside of the metal platter & around the motor post), try adjusting the SW screw on the underside of the unit that apparently fine-tune adjusts speed. It fixed the speed on my turntable - more info/instructions on it are posted under Mocamom1's question & solutions regarding PS-LX250H speed adjustment.
