Question about Vestax PDX-2000MKII PRO Turntable
My Vestax PDX-2000MKII Pro will not power on. It was working last night and then when I tried to turn it on this morning, it will not power on at all. I tried different outlets throughout the house and it still will not power on.
For anyone with similar problems and a spare working PDX then try taking the back off them both and unplugging the power-on switches (not the platter start/stop switch) from the circuit board and seeing if the switch from the working turntable works in the bust one. I have had the switch die and replaced before so knew to check this but the cost of a new switch is minimal and replacing them yourself is easy as long as you can use a soldering iron so definitely try this before panicking too much.

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.
