There are places that still carry needles you just have to track one down ..if they dont have the one you need they will probably know where to get it..

How do I connect this system together to get it to work?


The manual for the amplifier and all the other units are here. Use the search feature in the top right with just the model number 'AT-5210'. Getting the items in the right order helps. The turntable obviously goes on top. The Amplifier goes in the middle and all the other units connect to the amp.

Need a needle for a TECHNIC SL-3350


It's 'TechnicS' and 'stylus'. Wouldn't a web search have been faster?

"TECHNIC SL-3350 stylus"

But even 'technic" and 'needle' would have worked.

Need to adjust stylus pressure on my akai ap-a101 turntable


Not sure exactly with this one looked at a googled picture. The counter balance weight needs to come forward toward the stylus to increase weight and move back to decrease. there looks to be a thumb screw on the right of the counter weight turn anti clockwise slightly one of three things will happen either the weight will start to move down the arm, the screw will undo the weight will come loose and can be moved forward or back on the arm or not very much at all will happen at all.
Best to mark the position of the weight first so you can return it to its original position after you over adjust and cut your own grooves in you cherished vinyl only a small adjustment is required. failing that put a small piece of blu-tack on the top of the cartridge only joking.

Broken stylus arm is it still possible to get another one and is it possible to fit it myself also new stylus needed as well


The stylus should not be a problem. Without knowing the make and model of the turntable, however, there is no way to respond about hte arm. You have listed this question under the Rotel receiver category, can you pelase supply the ,ake and model of the turntable? Also, supply any numbers that appear on the current stylus so I can verify that either the exact one or a similar substitute is available.

Thanks,
Dan

I own an AIWA Stereo Synthesizer Tuner which has a 3 speed turntable, double cassette deck and CD player. Just had the CD player cleaned and it works fine but the stylus for the turntable is shot....the...


Unfortunately without seeing the actual needle or cartridge, it is just about impossible to provide you with a part number. Where are you located? Needles are still available and I sell them all the time. I will try to locate the "standard" part number for your model, but there were often different setups available. Is there any way to provide a photo of the one you have now?

Check the balance of the tonearm as well. If there is not sufficient pressure on the needle, it won't track the record correctly either. Please note, the you shouldn't put too much pressure or you will wear the record.

Please keep us posted.

Thanks,
Dan

Need instructions and tips for finding parts for an old turntable model # sg-h10 in dallas tx. may need replacement needle as well as belt.


Hi

Can you give me the make of the unit as well, we can do some searches aobut the place to see what can be found. Belts are generally not an issue as they can be fitted to suit the turntable. The stylus can be identified by often the shape and colour of it. Do you have the old one still? I have ID charts that can be used to match it up.

My turn table is and old one my needle is broken would i beable to get a new arm for it


With a model number and the brand of your turntable I could probably find what you need with that information. Without that information there is no way to find the right parts.

I have been fixing turntables for over 17 years and have only needed to replace the arm on 2 or 3 of them in that time. It is very unlikely that you would need the arm replaced. The arm is a little more difficult to find for some turntables, but it is not impossible.

Finding the stylus, and/or cartridge with the stylus is not too much of a problem.

Just supply the needed information and I will take care of it for you.

Low volume from Akai turntable attached to Pioneer Surround Sound Receiver


If you receiver doesn't have phono inputs,you will need to buy an inline phono amplifier.Phono inputs have a built in amplifier,all others don't.Try Crutchfield.com.If they don't carry them,they will tell you who does.
