Audio technica will send you a replacement clip free of charge. Just send their service department an email asking for one.

HELLO!
I don't know which country you are from, but if the mains plug has a fuse in it then replace it with the same type. If that does not do the trick take it back back where you bought it and get a refund or a replacement! There may well be an INTERNAL fuse inside the unit on the power supply unit which may be at fault. If it is under warranty don't open the turntable yourself - take it back - I WOULD!
All the best!

I'm trying to figure out what type of cartridge the ATP-2 is which came with my Audio Technica AT-PL120 Turntable. Is it "Moving Magnet" or "Moving Coil" or something else?


These are the specs for your cartridge - it is of the moving magnet variety. Vector-Aligned Dual Magnet design and A-T's exclusive Paratoroidal signal generator. This unique signal-generating system is composed of a unified, laminated coil core wound with a single piece of wire. Internal mechanical and electrical connections are eliminated, minimizing magnetic losses and assuring better signal transfer. PCOCC wire

Cartridge Specifications (ATP-2)

Frequency Response 15-22,000 Hz

Channel Separation 23/17 (dB at 1 kHz/10 kHz)

Vertical Tracking Force 3.0 - 5.0 grams

Stylus Construction Bonded round shank

Output 5.3 mV at 1 kHz, 5 cm/sec

Channel Balance 1.5 dB

Stylus Shape 0.4 x 0.7 mil elliptical
Cantilever Alloy tube

I just purchased the AT-LP120-USB - it's was a beast to get the thing balanced correctly, but now i hear some very obvious crackling sounds that weren't there before when the tone arm wasn't...


as long as you have balanced your tonearm correctly, maybe its simply just a problem with your vinyl? could just be dust in the grooves or could be static build up, try cleaning your vinyl with an antistatic cloth to see if the sound improves.

I'm a dj and I use the Auido Technica AT-PL120 as turntables. The problem is that when I mix, the pitch speed would increase and then eventually go down to the actual speed whithin seconds. I didn't have...


Before anything else I would clean the pitch slider control with a little bit of De-Oxit D5 cleaner or Servisol. It could be there is some dust/dirt in the slider control causing a fluctuation in speed because of bad contacts.

Spray a little in the slider, work it a few times and leave for about 5 minutes before trying. Hope this helps :)

Audio Technica AT-PL50 will not function.


most likely it's a 120vac motor. Get the bottom off and look for where power comes in somewhere on or around the base of the tonearm will be an actuator switch. unplugged, set the meter for ohms and operate the switch by moving the tone arm. You may have to use clip leads to get a free hand. The switch should read 0 ohms when the tonearm is moved. If not, you've got a bad switch.
While you are in there look around for anything that may have come loose or unplugged. Also, with it plugged in you should read somewhere between 110-120Volts ac between neutral and the motor side of the switch, when actuated. BE CAREFUL 110v can be lethal, or at the very least cause an unpleasant experience. Good luck

Audio-technica atp-2 cartridge with a atp-n2 stylus


Make sure the cart is connected properly, and check the manufacter's instruction with that cart. sometimes tonearm height and weights need to be adjusted for proper torque and sound.
