Question about Sony PS-LX250 Turntable
I have a PS-LX250H that is about 8 years old, and has been unused for about three years.
i have to set the speed at 33 rpm to play a 45 rpm record, and a 33 rpm record when set on 33 rpm plays too fast. basically, the motor is running too fast. any idea why this is happening?
I have a different Sony model (PS-LX-150H) that had a similar problem. I hadn't used it in awhile, and then when I did, I noticed the speed problem.
IF your PS-LX250 is like my PS-LX150, there are small speed adjustment screws accessible from the bottom of the unit. On mine, the two adjustment screws were labeled - one for 33rpm, the other for 45 rpm. Basically I just fiddled a bit with them using a very small precision screw driver until I could verify that I had reached 33 rpm (I used a stopwatch and literally counted the number of rotations/minute after making adjustments.)
Now it sounds right!

This is the correct answer. Don't mess with the SW, LIN, or RET screws. You'll just screw it up. Use a jeweler or eyeglass style flat blade screwdriver and just slightly adjust the 33 or 45 screws. First, unplug the unit. Then, place the screwdriver in and feel around until you feel the blade engage. Make very small adjustments plug it in and play a record till it sounds right to you.
