Vestax PDX200 platter keeps changing direction

Hi, I have a Vestax PDX2000 deck which occasionally stops in the middle of a record and starts playing backwards for a few seconds then starts playing forwards again. Obviously this makes mixing impossible. Any ideas how i could resolve this?

Hi everyone,

I had exactly same problem with my Vestax pdx 2000 mk2 TUNETABLE.

The solution involves some careful screwdriving but is fairly simple....
You need to take the motor out and carefully take it to pieces, the problem is caused by a tiny piece that needs to be put back into place. Of course you will loose your warranty but its cheaper and faster then getting new motor or sending to repair.

If u need help don't hasitate to email me: jazzbin@o2.pl
i can explain every step and send u step by step pics of the repair.

This is a really common fault with this model of TT. I've just repaired a pair of them with the same problem.

You need to remove the bottom cover of the deck then take the round cover off the bottom of the motor assembly. Be really careful with that, delicate sensitive stuff inside. Once you remove the screws use a small flat blade screwdriver to lift the cover free of the rubbery glue that seals and holds it in place.


Once removed, in the centre of that cover is a small black rubber cirlce about 6mm in diameter that the shaft of the motor rotates on. The problem causing all of that erratic platter movement is with this small black circle.

The solution I found was to use double sided tape to hold this part in place. This serves two purposes. First, to stop the part from moving off its required location, Secondly, to raise the part up slightly from the bracket that it sits on. Layer the double sided tape up so its the around the same thickness as the small black rubber circle. Then place the black cirlcle into its original location bedding it firmly into the tape.

A tiny small dolop of grease on the end of the motor shaft. Replace the motor and bottom covers. Bingo! The decks a-go-go!

Happy mixing!

    Sorry, I have a similar problem, but my English is not perfect. Bought two PDX 2000 on ebay and one has the problem that the platter vibrates and rumbles when playing. Can I fix it with this method and if so,could one please please please make some photos of how it has to be fixed? I'm not sure whether i understood everything here. In case of doubt I would say no. Please help!

Padster07, I could kiss you!!! Your solution worked perfectly. One of my PDX-2000s had been virtually unusable for the last few years due to the back and forth platter problem but I followed your solution and it's now back to full working order again. Thanks very very much!.

I'm having the erratic table issue (reversing and moving forward like it's possessed).... I am not savvy with equipment at all. When I took off the base and tried to unscrew the round part... I couldn't figure out how to pry off the rubber cemented part. Should I just hack at it? Is that even the right way to go? I need a video tutorial!!! eeee!

Vestax PDX 2000 motor going crazy problem


hey, it will work with the tape solution but you gotta pay attention to the light metallic circle which is used by the light sensor (the small black one with cables on it) to estimate motor movement - first time i opened it and did the tape thing to the black rubber circle i eventually touched the light metallic circle and i think that caused it not working for me too
the light metallic circle must be totally clean and plain, do your best, but be sensible

I have problem with tonearm on my vestax pdx 2000 turntable , no connection with needle , but when I make contacts of the needle wet it sometimes help a bit , but I should do it always to make it work. ...


I'd be checking the weight and height settings of the tonearm. Heres a link to the manual for the deck. There's instructions in there about how to setup up the tonearm properly. Don't be afraid to experiment with it. Just remember, too much weight will wear out your vinyl really quickly. Not enough weight will sound like **** and skip easily. Have fun!

you should check the fuse on the other turntable to get the correct size, if it persists in blowing you should realy send it back because if you were to use a larger fuse you run the risk of blowing something in the deck, i know its not a great help but its all i can offer

Turntable spinning backwards


If it is a direct drive TT then it uses some electronic circuitry to control speed and it sounds like that circuit is having a problem. Possibly the actual driver IC for the TT motor has gone bad. Good luck.
