SOURCE: turntable skips during playback

The only thing I can say is to make sure you set up your cartridges correctly - click HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS on BALANCING YOUR TONEARM properly.

If, you've balanced your tonearm, and set up your cartridges correctly, then you should not have any problems. Unless, your tonearms are damaged. But this is highly unlikely. I just think you need to balance properly.

Another note, Ortofon Concorde have a design flaw, in that they don't connect very well to the Technics tonearm. The Concorde's, have short and stubby connections on the rear, making for poor connections to the tonearm. Ortofon has addressed this issue by releasing the Ortofon OM series cartridges, and mount them to standard Technics Headshell.

If you still can't figure this out, feel free to give our techs a call 24/7 @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1 - they can walk you through setting up, and properly testing your tonearm to see if it's damaged or not.

If your needle just started to skip across the LP, then that means your stylus is damaged/worn and needs to be replaced. It's very hard to see the diamond tip on the stylus, and it might not even be there at all. So checking it might not yield any results. This is what happens when the needle is worn. It will skip across the record.

SOURCE: Adjustments on Technics SL-B2 Automatic Turntable

the pitch is just the speed, adjust to your liking.

"How do I adjust tracking pressure and anti skate?
If you are lucky enough to have these two adjustments here's how: Move tracking force counter weight till needle suspends/hovers above record. then rotate numbers to zero. (this is zero grams pressure on record) then rotate weight AND numbers to recommended tracking pressure for your needle usually 1.5 to 3 grams is average. Then rotate anti skate to be equal. That should get you there. If you still have adjustment related distortion then it may be time for a new needle.
NOTE: Anti skate is adjusting side to side pressure WITHIN GROOVE of record. Tracking pressure is how hard the needle is pushing down inside the groove." from

turntableneedles.com/FAQs_ep_33.html

lots of crackles are caused by crummy records and needles. to some small degree are unavoidable no matter what, but above all the records must be clean.

someday the manual may show up for free here

SOURCE: Cannot adjust speed on a vintage Technics SL-B30 Turntable

More than likely it is a faulty drive IC (Integrated Circuit). If so, your out of luck, because most parts for this unit are discontinued, with the exception of the belt.

There really isn't much else you can do. Will probably cost too much to repair, if you can find someone who can repair it.

Sorry couldn't be of much more help.

I've just set up my Technics SL D212 turntable after moving house. It keeps skidding across records. I've tried the usual adjustments and leveled the turntable. Any clues?


Please make 100% certain the needle is still in place... To test this *GENTLY* rub your fingertip over it and you should hear noise from the speakers when you do. If there is NO noise then there is likely no needle.
Did you put the protective device on the needle/arm for the move? Is it still on there?
Sorry Mate, that the only thing I've got to help....

Zennox usb turntable arm rises before end of record


Hi, we don't have that model turntable in NZ so I can't say exactly where the adjustment for the tone arm lift position is. However on the majority of turntables it will either be beside the base of the tonearm possibly under a rubber grommet or if you remove the rubber platter mat and there is a hole in the platter near the outer edge rotate the platter whilst looking through the hole for a screw near the tonearm. Adjust anti clockwise a little and test. Fine tune until you are happy with where it stops. John. styluscity.com

I have to let my clutch handle all the way out before it catches.I installed new clutch and pressure plates, and adjusted it according to the manual, but same problem


You haven't adjusted it correctly. You must adjust the clutch in the exact sequence that the manual tells you to. A lot of people don't like the idea of having to loosen the clutch cable but it has to be done. Find the cable adjuster and loosen the lock nut. Turn the adjuster barrel inwards and get a LOT of slack in the cable. Then, remove the derby cover. You'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster screw and locknut in the center. Loosen the locknut and turn the screw outwards until it's loose. Turn it back inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the screw and you may have to turn it back out and then back in several times until you get the feel of what you're doing. Once you feel the resistance, back the screw back out 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down. Replace the derby cover. Then adjust the cable adjuster barrel back out until you have about an 1/8" free play in the cable. This should adjust your clutch to a more acceptable engagement point. Since your clutch discs are new, be prepared to adjust your clutch several more times as the plates "seat in".

Good Luck

My 1999 HD Superglide has 48,000 miles on it and I just had new cam shoes installed last fall. My problem is when you put the bike in gear, it makes a God-awful metal on metal grinding noise. What do you...


Does the grinding noise stop once you get the transmission in gear? if so, you may need to adjust your clutch. To adjust the clutch, find the cable adjuster in the middle of the clutch cable. It should be near the downtubes of the frame in front of the engine. Slide the boot up or down to expose the adjuster and loosen the lock nut. Turn the adjuster barrel inwards getting a good deal of slack in the clutch cable. Then, stand the bike up fairly straight and remove the derby cover from the primary. Inside, you'll see the clutch assembly with the adjuster screw in the center of it. Loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster screw inwards until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL DESTROY YOUR INNER CLUTCH HUB. Once you feel the pressure, back off on the screw 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down tight. Replace the derby cover. Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel outwards until you have about 1/8 inch freeplay in the lever at the pivot. Lock the lock nut down tight and replace the protective cover. Also, make sure that the oil in your primary is not too high. With the bike standing straight up, the oil should be just to the bottom edge of the outer clutch drum, the bright aluminum ring on the outside of the clutch assembly. If it's too high, the clutch will drag and you will be unable to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

When shifting my 2005 flhtp seem like it clunks when going into gear upshift and downshift is that normal or do i need clutch adjustment


I'd adjust the clutch. With the engine off, put the transmission in first gear. Pull the clutch in and hold it. Try to start the engine. If the bike pulls forward, you need to adjust the clutch.

Find the rubber boot that covers the cable adjuster on the clutch cable and move it up or down. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inwards getting as much slack in the cable as possible.

Then, take the derby cover off the primary. You'll see an adjuster screw in the middle of the clutch assembly. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inwards until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL DAMAGE YOUR INNER CLUTCH HUB. Turn the screw in until you feel a resistance. Then, back it back out 1/2 turn and tighten the lock nut. Replace the derby cover.

Go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel out until you have about 1/8 inch of freeplay in the cable. Tighten the lock nut and replace the rubber boot.

Good Luck

How do you adjust the clutch and the clutch cable ?


use a T-27 with a small ratchet and use pressure to get the derby cover off the first time. If you try and take any kind of short cut you will have a bad day.

Adjust only when totally cold

When adjusting the clutch, back of the adjusting screw out and then spin back to tighten. You can really feel it when the adjustment screw seats. As soon as you feel that little bit of pressure, stop! Just rotate a half turn back, and you should be right on the money.

The clutch cable will stretch over time, but all you have to do is take up the slack. Just tighten it up until the clutch lever has a nickel's worth of slack in it. If it's too tight the clutch might not fully engage. You do not have to adjust the clutch if you are just taking up slack on the lever.

These tasks take very little time, even for a first timer. Again, don't over think it. Trust me, I know it's easy to do.

Hope this helps.

JUST BOUGHT A '73 XLCH THAT SAT FOR 2 YEARS BECAUSE THE OLD MAN THAT OWNED IT COULDN'T KICK START IT ANYMORE. IT STARTS RIGHT UP BY PUSH STARTING IT, BUT KICKING IT IS ANOTHER STORY. IT'S GETTING FIRE...


You probably need to adjust your valves. Ironhead Sportsters are equipped with solid lifters and must be adjusted with zero backlash. If one of the pushrods is adjusted just a bit tight and holds a valve open even slightly, the bike is almost impossible to start with the kickstarter.

To adjust the valves, the bike must be stone cold. Take the spark plugs out, raise the rear wheel of the ground, and put the transmission in fourth gear. Turn the engine over by bumping the rear wheel in the normal direction of rotation. Bring the piston of one of the cylinders up to top dead center on the Compression stroke. Pop the pushrod tube covers and check the pushrods. You should be able to spin both pushrods with your fingers. If not, adjust the pushrod so taht it's tight. Then back it off to where you can just spin it with your fingers. Keep in mind that on a Sportster, it's better to have the pushrods slightly loose than tight. Once you get that cylinder's pushrods adjusted, do the same thing with the other cylinder.

Now, once you get this done, starting your bike is simply a matter of figuring what works with it. I've always said that kickstarting a Harley, especially a Sportster, is a ritual. Some bikes like for you to milk the throttle twice, kick the engine through twice with the choke on and ignition off, then turn on the ignition and kick it. Other bikes seem to want only one milk of the throttle, one kick with the ignition off, and then kick it. Each bike seems to have it's own particular ritual that you must figure out to get reliable starting. I'd try milk the throttle once, put the choke on, kick it through with the ignition off once, then turn the ignition on and kick. If the bike spits back through the carb, you need to start all over again. If you get the engine flooded, hold the throttle wide open and kick until it fires.

One other thing about a Sportster. Did the old man you bought it from have a limp in his right leg? A Sportster is notorious for "slipping through" when you try to start it. The result is that all your weight comes down on your knee without any resistance. The result is your knee tries to bend backwards, the way it wasn't designed to do. This can tear ligaments and cartilage in the knee and it even has it's own name, "Sportster Knee". Be careful.

2005 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic clutch adjustment ?


To adjust the clutch, first find the clutch cable adjuster. It should be somewhere along the downtube of the frame in front of the engine. Slide the rubber bellows cover either up or down to expose the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster inwards shortening the cable as much as possible.

Remove the Derby cover from the primary cover. In the middle of the clutch assembly is an adjuster bolt and a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjust inwards until you feel a resistance. Don't not force the adjuster, go inwards until you feel the resistance of the throwout bearing on the other side. Try it a couple of times until you get the feel of it. Go inwards until you feel the resistance and then come back out 1/2 to 1 full turn. Lock the lock nut down and replace the derby cover.

Then go back to the cable aduster and and adjust the cable adjuster out until you have about an 1/8" freeplay at the lever. Lock that lock nut down and reposition the bellows cover.

Good Luck

Put a brand new drive belt on my sony PS-LX250H and the sound


If the belt is installed correctly (around the center ring on the underside of the metal platter & around the motor post), try adjusting the SW screw on the underside of the unit that apparently fine-tune adjusts speed. It fixed the speed on my turntable - more info/instructions on it are posted under Mocamom1's question & solutions regarding PS-LX250H speed adjustment.
