    Alright, so i dont know where to put this question, so i just put it in general.....

    ok, so i bought 2 vestax PDX 2000 MKII used, when i got them they were both in great condition, but recently on one of them, the left channel is cutting in and out. usually when this happed previously i could just move the cable a little and it comes back, but now its not coming back at all. I dont know what to do. all help is appreciated

    you also said you bought them used... maybe they have just had too much wear and tear.

    yea, i checked the cables, but i also found the problem, i think there was just dust in where you put the cartridge in in the arm. because once i blew in there it started working... weird... but thanks for your help guys

    Always good to keep an eraser handy when dealing with Turntable carts that are losing a channel. Many peeps lick the connector when there's an issue but this just helps to oxidize the copper tines. Always better to use a good old eraser and it shines em right up.
