You see it often with guys which , when scratching , put the pitch often at full load and pressing the platter too hard. the capacitors ain't in a great shape after all those years and then the chance that the transformer gives up , is good possible. My technics mk-5 has a 60.000 uF buffer, which is ok since I also listen a lot vinyl and the noisy parts are removed/replaced, Offcourse the pus is outside the turntable.

Looking at the vestax, which I have a lot units from , but allways replaced the caps when I bought one second hand and never had
problems with the motor or transformer, where a lot of people's complain about. The motor and transformer are nothing wrong with . Often is maintenance the problem.

You have a short in your unit, and you will need professional assistance in determining the cause. You might also want to try a different outlet. If it fails, then you'll need to bring it to a service center for repair.

Vestax pdx 2000s. Where can I get tonearm counterweights? I cannot find any online many thanks!!


I recommend you search for just tonearm counterweights. Rather than your make of deck. You will then have to compare them to see if it will fit your arm. Amazon do have them for different makes. Vestax might be just a name given to a shop brand, the deck itself being made by a more well known company.

Clibrate pitch Vestax PDX d3S


It's a variable , since it's depended on more parts, but just clean it first and gently turn it until the platter moves correct,assuming you
mean to correct the variable resistor(potmeter) . If the value was everywhere the same, then you don't need a variable resistor:)

MY FUSE KEEPS BLOWING OUT


If the fuse keeps blowing it's because some part is acting like it is a piece of wire. It will probably be a semi-conductor in the power supply of the turntable, or the transformer. They often look burnt or damaged the semi-conductors in this state.

Hi, have been given a vestax pdx 2300 turntable and the motor is acting crazy, do i replace motor or is it an internal roblem?


Is there a speed control switch? UNPLUG and try spraying contact cleaner into the speed control. IF that doesn't solve it, then back to the manufacturer.

My turntable keeps skiping for no reason, no matter the record. i also made sure the turntable was level. the turntable is a vestax 2000mkII


What is the weight on the stylus? Flip the protective shield down to protect the stylus if available. Tare the tone arm (adjust the counterweight on the back of the arm until the arm floats perfectly level), then hold the counterweight and turn the dial markings to read zero. If you cannot find the recommended mass for the stylus you can use the average weight of 3g. Verify your tone arm is still floating in the center and the arm is perfectly level. Turn the counterweight until the dial indicates the specified weight of the cartridge manufacture specification sheet or you can set it for 3g if you do not have the specification sheet.

I carnt remove the turntable platter can anyone help


The platter needs a drop of oil as the platter and motor shaft is a machined fit, Via brass upside down v as the platter will be reversed ie: a A WITH NO LINE . You can place two plastic wedge shaped blocks ,one on each side of the platter with even pressure and work up.

Re: Power Problem


More than likely the power transformer fried. If so, it will need to be replaced. You might also want to check the fuse. Some of the PDX units have fuses on the rear (where the RCA cables connect)... some don't. I've also seen some that have a fuse on the inside of the turntable, underneath the turntable platter... some don't. If your's has a fuse, see if it has burned out. If so, just replace.

If not, then the only other thing that would affect power on the PDX is the power transformer, and only a qualified service tech should replace this for you.
