Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi Mikey. I shure hope you have solved your problem by now, but for everyone else, I woud like to shead some light on this matter. What you need to do is to adjust the auto-return lever that is located between the center of the platter and the tonearm, underneath the plastic cover. To do so, you first need to remove the platter so that can reach the adjustment-screw.
This is how the lever looks like in my PL-300X and it should look the same for you. I've marked the adjustment-screw that can be reached through a hole under the platter.
and this is what it looks like with the cover on:
Hope this can solve your or anyone elses problem. Ciao / Albin

Thank's Rocksteady01, I had the same problem with my Pioneer PL-300X and I tried to fix it myself with your discription and foto!!! saved me lots of money (to let it repear), and it took me about 2 hours to find out and to try out what's the best moment for return. By turning the adjustment-screw in another position and try when the arm returned I got adventually a good return-position after three times.
When assemblage: pay attention to the 'cut'-system; Be sure that the inside one has the right position.

The chances are the rubber drive belt
has either broken or stretched so that it has fallen off the drive
You will need to gain access to the
underside of the turntable to replace it.
With most turntables the process will be
to secure the tone arm (a rubber band will do the trick) before turning the
whole thing upside down and unscrewing the base.
Replacement drive belts are easily
available on the internet. Search by make and model number of your turntable
