    I am having trouble with a (borrowed) Sony PSLX250H. The auto-start feature seems to be stuck. I cannot drop the needle manually and the auto feature seems to start for a second then stop.
    Is there a reset for this unit, or am I doing something wrong? I have tried to unplug the unit but that doesn't seem to do anything.

    Regards

    Maybe try rotating the platter about a dozen times manually with the tone arm at rest. On some tables this resets the mechanism.

    I have one of these, and it does goofy things too. They're pretty much just real cheap turntables that aren't made to last.

    Thanks guys. I'll try rotating the platter. I can't wait to buy my own table. This one is a total POS.
