Replace the Needle with a new one (part No. PZP1004) . Remove the old Stylus (or Needle) by pulling it downwards gently, and push the new Stylus/needle in place as shown in the below photo.

Hi . The lock has a clamp arm which receives a threaded fastener and a needle tube arm which has a bore which receives the needle tab. The arms are integrally formed from stainless steel or other suitable sterilizable material. The lock is positioned about the needle tube and may be rotated relative to the needle tube retainer to a selected position and secured by tightening the fastener against the retainer. Remove the needle holder using a tool suitable for it and remove the needle and fix it again in the correct position and continue the stitching in zig zag .

    THIS IS NOT CORRECT FOR THIS TURNTABLE! Please check the model before giving information. The arm on these are plastic and the arm joins the headshell in one whole piece.

RCA Lawton 841.662 Turntable. How do i get to replacment needles to put a needle on? Can't find any videos on you tube or instruction manual.


The bit in red in your photo is the stylus cartridge and holds the needle/stylus. This part should come off and you replace the whole red cartridge with the new cartridge. In your photo it looks like the needle is missing. See here for replacement:

I have a technic turntable. SL B2 My needle is worn. I am trying to find the right needle/stylus for it. Do you know where I can purchase one.


You need to look at the cartridge it fits into. It will have a make and model number on it. Put that into Google search and it should come up with suppliers of both.

Tonearm Weight, Good Replacement Stylus, Gain level


Most good turntables will track with weights between 1.25 and 1.5 grams. Any more than that and you are putting alot of pressure on the needle. Experiment a bit and make sure that the needle tracks well and that the sound is good. The less weight you use, the longer the needle will last and the less wear on the record.

I thought there was a problem with the speakers or receiver, but after turning off the speakers and listening to the sound from the needle, it appears that the distortion is coming from the turntable. The...


The "needle", now called a "stylus", doesn't produce anything on its own. At the worst, the tip will shear off and it will slide across and damage the vinyl. So probably your "cartridge" is defective. Now, most low rumbling distortion would come from your turntables motor or platter bearings. Also if you unplugged the Phono leads from the preamp ports in the back of your amp and the noise goes away then you have learned that the amplifier is not producing the effect. Does this help?

You have 4 wires coming from the needle pickup to the cables which connect to the amplifier/receiver. I would check the needle, the pickup unit, and the leads from the pickup to the cables. You can probably run a continuity test or ohm test for verification. If that checks, pickup and needle is your next step.
