I was told that there are no replacement needles for the sony ps-lx250h turntable, that it is essentially a cheap disposable turntable. It was a couple hundred$ eight yrs ago and I would really like to replace the needle and use it again. Anyone know if this is possible?

The speed controls might be underneath the turntable base. Sometimes covered up with white stickers. On other models you have to remove the bottom side to get access to the PC board, where the controls can be found. On cheaper models the speed controls are on the motor itself.
To replace the stylus (N-6516 from your Sony dealer)
1.Turn off the amplifier
2. Protect the stylus with the stylus cover (it flips down 90 degrees)
3. Grasp the stylus holder (exposed when cover was flipped down) and pull it away from the cartridge body
4. Insert the stylus by pushing it in to the cartridge receptacle. Flip the stylus protector up.
Go to esupport.sony.com and type in your turntable model, PS LX250H. The "H" is important. Available is the complete manual, and a separate publication just on removing the stylus and setting EQ. Basically, swing the protector bar down over the needle, and snap the entire (mine is beige) unit down from the tone arm, then pull forward. I'm still shopping for the replacement, frankly.
I have a Sony Wood Base Turntable PS-1100. Does not have tonearm counterweight. Does anyone know where I can get this and where I can get owner's / user manual and service manual?
