Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My Pioneer PL-220 turntable was spinning too fast after I took it apart and put it back together. Upon re-opening it I found the two trimmer pots that access through the top of the table (under the platter) to have been broken (by me using too much force, I am sure, when screwdriving them). Also, a nearby pawn shop said there may have been a magnet(?) that might have come loose from the turntable that helps the speed control. Is this something you know about? Great help is appreciated! Thanks!

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

Start with eBay, craigslist.org, perhaps local Goodwill store. It might be easier to just by another turntable that is not in fantastic shape but has a working motor...then swap.

Remove any tape from the belt

That is the drive belt for the turntable .
It's not that hard to set up. Take the mat off the platter and wrap the belt around the underneath -slightly-less-diameter portion.

With a pointed end needle or something like it , put the tip between the belt and the platter portion it's wrapped against.
Pull the belt away from that( keeping the rest of the belt on the platter portion) and set it over the motor pulley. This is usually a small diameter brass spindle unit

Dear pap 55,
The feet are removable, can be open. To check the dead set you donot need to open it. Remove the power cord from the wall socket, check the contnuity with multimeter of the two pin plug after switching on power switch of the system.

Pioneer Pl990 turntable sounds awful.... I have a pioneer pl 990 record player connected to a pioneer amplifier and a sony CD player. when I play an LP, the sound is bass heavy and I can hardly hear t


When the turntable plays, do you get a howling bass heavy sound? Have you tried turning down the volume and bass? If that corrects the problem, you have what's known as Acoustic Feedback. Check to make sure the tonearm is properly set up first. If it is, please visit my website at Audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

Hello My turntable do not spin


This turntable is a belt driven type. The belt wraps around the underside of the platter and the drive motor spindle. If the belt has slipped off, broken or is so old that it is slipping - the platter will not turn. Usually you can remove the rubber cover on the top of the platter to use access openings beneath to put the belt back on.

The turntable product brochure, owner's manual and related info is available from Pioneer, here.

I hope this helps!

PL-L50 Pioneer direct drive turntable playing records as if it had a bad belt speed variations in playback, but direct drive has no belts of course. What could be making my records playback speed...


If there is a speed adjustment for 45 and 33 rpm records the contacts or pots need to be sprayed with some electronic cleaner to remove any dust. This is done by removing the bottom of the player and finding the control knobs inside. Electronic cleaner can be found at Radio Shack for around $10 for a large can. It does not take much. Just spay inside the control knobs inside the unit. You will find a small hole where you can put the spray tube that comes with the cleaner. Work the "pots" or knobs back and forth several times to loosen any residue inside the knob casing. Be careful not to shock yourself by removing the bottom. If you are not use to working on electronics it may be better to let someone else with more knowledge tackle the job.

I need to know how to put a new belt in my pioneer pl 1120 turntable i bought new in box last year and cant get the belt in got a new belt fron pioneer but they did not sent infor for install it is from...


A turntable is a precision mechanical instrument as complicated as a mechanical watch. It is very unlikely you will be able to take it apart and get all the pieces back together, even with a service manual, which would cost you more than $50, if you could get it.
I'm sorry to say, unless you live in a big city and can find an old turntable pro it is not repairable. If you have a computer, they make turntables that plug into a USB port.

My Thorens speed is off


1 sec is not all that fast.... with that said you can see if there is a control that you stick a small screw driver under the table or you may have to open it but there should be a variable pot to change speed and most likely if you adjust it it's going to be off more than just 1 sec
