Question about Sony PS-LX250H Turntable
My Sony PS-LX520 turntable starts to skip after 1-2 minutes of playing, and appears that the tonearm is not moving forward as the record progresses thus causing the skip. Anything can I do to resolve this?
Yep - Just did the repair and it was as stated above. Had exactly the same problem you have and changing this tiny drive belt was the fix. I add more details and another source to find this belt:
I had the same problem and a review of forums and my experience with my own fix indicated that this is almost certainly your problem:
The roughly 2.6 inch (circumerence) drive belt (that connects a tiny motor to the worm screw that moves the tone-arm laterally when it gets the signal) likely needs replacement. Mine was intact but old and rigid enough to keep slipping or hang up the tiny motor. Unplug the unit - take out the 8-10 screws to take off the bottom - remove this little belt - scrub the pulleys with tripled-up sewing thread, and replace with new belt. This is a good source:
$6.50 (paypal available) for 2 belts to reach their minimum, free shipping, arrived in 2 days.
You might also want to clean and lightly grease the rail that the tone arm rides on, but this is unlikely to fix the problem without a replacement belt.

Check the needle, if its not that then you can check the tracking, the relationship between downward weight on the needle and lateral movement across the record. you will need the manual for the instructions
It can be tricky so if you are not sure then consult a good hifi shop or tech.
Hope this helps
