I would use 300,000 on that Pioneer.

It worked for another poster with the same problem. =D>
Thanks. I might try that.

Anyone know what fluid I need for a Yamaha yp-d8? 300K or 500K? Does it make a difference or does 500 just cause a slower descent? My tonearm actually snaps up very forcefully at the end of a record or if I push the off button. From what I’m reading this could be my fix. Thanks!
