Question about Sony PS-LX350H Turntable

1 Answer

I have a Sony turntable system PS-636 which I bought as new in the UK many many years ago. It is not working and an engineer who looked it says the capstan motor (whatever that is) needs to be replaced and they have no way of getting one. My two questions are: is this fixable and where can I purchase this part. Thank you Peter

There's only one motor and that turns the turntable! If it has gone your in trouble. If the engineer can't get one it could be double trouble for you. I can only advise you to contact Sony and see if the motor is still available. If it is you can tell the engineer about it. If not I would sell it on E-Bay marked for parts only! Put any money you make towards a new turntable. There's lots of demand for parts such as the lids etc on E-Bay.

Got distracted. I need a start up disc for a Sony turntable model PS-LX300USB.Disc was missing in original package.Tried calling customer service WOW!!

I assume you mean a software disc is missing.

Then all you need to do is use this site. It will be in warranty so they should be able to send it out. If you have not registered the device do so at the same time.

Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum.

Have you tried testing it on something else, I guess my thought it possibly it the needle. In other words are you pretty sure your needle is working. I have had the problem years ago with the needle not registering. And next step, of course you make sure it plugs into the audio out put of the receiver. And third try plugging in , if you have it, another device to make sure your out put of receiver is working, if it does then most likely it is your needle. I really hope this helps some, thank mike

I'm not sure what happened. I received this for Christmas this year brand-new, and about a week ago it simply stopped working. I thought the belt might have come off, but it had not. It just stopped...

The turntable motor may be bad, it is possible it developed an open winding in the motor or there is power feed issue, or the mechanical switch may be open. The only way to find out is have somebody with a meter check it out.

Sony Stereo turntable system PS-X55 Power failure

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 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?

What size belt does a Sony PS-LX300H USB turntable use?

These replacement parts are purchased for the model turntable that they are to be installed in. They are not generic and are not bought by "size" as say a fan belt for a car would be. I googled "Sony PS-LX300H Belt" and got:
