SOURCE: all my vinyl sounds warped on turntable

Most common problem is the belt getting soft, especially if it has sat for a long time. It will get a weak spot where it sat on the drive pulley and every time the turntable goes around and hits that weak spot it will slow down a little making it sound like a warped album.

The belts are usually very easy to replace. Usually just lift off the turntable or there might be a small clip on the center pin, then it lifts off. Replacement belts can be ordered from several places, as shown in this search... http://www.google.com/search?&q=SL-B200+Technics+turntable+belt

You just need a new belt, they're around 20 bucks. Buy them in pairs, or threes.  They stretch out about every seven years.

SOURCE: Changing the belt on a Technics SL-3 (Linear tracking) turntable

Instructions on installation of your drive belt - this also applies to other brands as well - however this belt is only for the Technics models listed above:

  1. Remove the turntable platter off from the turntable
  2. Remove the old/damage belt
  3. Wrap the new belt underneath the turntable platter - you will see a small lip on the bottom of the platter. Wrap the belt around this lip.
  4. Put the platter back on the turntable
  5. The turntable platter will have small holes, rotate the platter until you see the motor, and the motor shaft.
  6. Pinch the belt, so that it wraps around the motor shaft
  7. Turn on and enjoy!

Needle doesn't make contact with album-can I adjust it myself?


The weight at the end of the arm should be adjusted so that it applies pressure to the stylus. However sometimes the cueing leaver can get stuck or break, not allowing the stylus to come down on to the record. If the weight has numbers trying setting it to around 2 or 3. If it does come down, adjust it till that it neither rumbles or slips across the record. It's a question of trial and error doing this.

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....

I just purchases a Technics 1200 turntable for $70.00. I have found a problem, at the end of the album, the arm does not auto return, but just stays on the album. Could this be a simple problem,...


First off, Congratulations on such a excellent deal! That's a $500.00 turntable. I know I own a pair and I've been a DJ for 18 years.

Second, the Technics 1200 does not have an auto return. You have to pick up the needle and bring it back manually.

The cartridge arm does not go back to the off position.


it's a "manual" turntable so this is normal. You would need to buy an "automatic" turntable to have the arm return back when done.

Needle skipping & not pushing down


There should be an "anti-skate" adjustment to control the arm moving across the record. It is possible that lubrication has stiffened up as well. This unit may need a general overhaul/cleaning.

Uh, hold the black headshell with one hand. With the other, twist the bumpy ringlock on the tonearm gently clockwise. Slide the cartridge out. You should be facing the TT.

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.
