Question about Sony PS-LX250 Turntable

1 Answer

Won't start Hello, I've had the SONY PS-LX250H for three years now, and gradually a problem has worsened where if I push start, the arm lifts up, moves to the record and begins playing, and then lifts up and returns to its holder after about a second. If I put the arm there manually it still lifts up as if I've pressed the stop button. No matter what tricks I do the arm lifts up and returns to its holder immediately after playing. Sometimes if I quickly move the arm onto the record i can manage to get it to continue playing.  Any thoughts? Your help is greatly appreciated.    Thanks so much,  Rob

I had the same problem with the arm constantly starting and stopping, and the suggestion above works. Despite, I was a little confused on how to do it. Here's what I did in detail:

- Remove the turntable mat.
- Unhook the belt and remove the turntable platter.
- Once the platter's removed, you should see two plastic white gears in the middle. Rotate the center gear clockwise until its tab hits the larger gear. The center gear should move freely and without resistance until you hit that gear.
- Put the platter back, making sure to re-hook the belt around the spindle.
- Put the mat back.

After that, you should be set!

Sony PS-LX250H Player arm won't set down to play


Have you made sure the "up/down" button is not depressed? It's the furthest button to the right of the player if you are looking at it head-on. If it is depressed, it will cause the needle to simply hover above the spinning record. A good thing if you want to "pause" your musical experience, but not much help if you are trying to enjoy some sonic sensations.

My stylus arm exerts 4 grams weight


Four grams seems a little much. I find it hard to believe Sony relied solely on an inaccessible spring for stylus pressure adjustment. Back in the day, we used to tape a coin on top of the back end of the tone arm to adjust pressure so it may be necessary to improvise

My Sony PS-LX250H turntable will only spin at 45rpm. When i push the speed button for 33 it doesn't change. i also sometimes have to give the deck a little push to get it to spin.


I have the exact same problem for the same model. Only spins at 45 and I sometimes have to kick-start it. I tried de-activating the switch (so that it's not making a connection) and therefore in the 33 position but that does not help.

I push the start button and no power


You need to check if any internal fuse has blown. Next the switch itself might have broken.

How do i replace belt on lx250h?


Not sure about yours, but some of these one lifts the rubber pad to get access to the belt through holes in the platter when you are re-installing to get the belt back on the hub it runs on. One usually has to lift the platter off to get the belt around the center hub and the motor pulley first..

You can probably find the belts online with a Google search.

Turntable ps-x55 / arm want move stay in lock mode


Hi,
I have the exact same problem with my TT - a PS-X55. It appears that the motor has failed. Too bad, as I was told the replacement motor part is no longer stocked by Sony. For what it's worth - the part number is 154116500.
Let me know if you manage to find some who has the exact part stocked.
