Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
Although I think I have set the stylus pressure control per the manual I seem to be doing something wrong as the arm skates accross the vinal when I have used the appropriate pressure. Unfortunately I no longer have the overhang gauge so I have measured the overhang could this be where it is wrong or have you any other suggestions.
Sounds like the stylus has been damaged. Perhaps when you were adjusting or installing the stylus, it might have gotten damaged. The stylus will only slide across a record like that when the actual tip is either damaged or no longer present.
Check your stylus first and foremost. If you still see the tip, then try adjusting the balance weight - the big weight towards the rear of the tonearm.
