No, I have a PL-300 and its directly driven by a DC motor. I have taken mine apart to clean once before and noticed some potentiometers on the bottom. (There are holes on the bottom of the plastic casing for easy access using a small flathead screwdriver) Those might be to adjust speed. They could also be for tone though... It might also be that the electronic quartz-based speed controller is broken. With these old things its never easy to tell whats wrong.

I think it is a belt driver table. you can find a replacement belt maybe. but if it is servo controlled motor driven then adjustments to sped setting has to be done.

You need to hook it up to another analog input other than the phono input. The record player has a built in preamp, and the receiver's phono input has a separate preamp for non-amplified players. You cannot have the two hooked to each other.

45 and 33 sound slow


Here's a procedure for setting the tonearm...

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable and place it on a perfectly level surface.

Set the Tracking Force and AntiSkating to 0.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter Clockwise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
If you don't have a Stylus Tracking Force Gauge. Dial in the prescribed tracking force and a corresponding anti-skate reading. Play records.

Pioneer PL-670 record rejects continually


Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.

Motor for pioneer Pl 120 turntable


There are only three possibilities:
1) Find a scrap unit somewhere and salvage the motor.
2) Find an old Pioneer dealer that still has old stock lying around.
3) Get lucky and find one on Ebay.

No phono inputs?? You will need a phono to line level preamp to use aux input.
