Most likely needs a new needle. Try needlelady.com or needledoctor.com Modern record players usually track at 2 to 4 grams of pressure. Thats about as much as a penny weighs maybe. Putting more pressure on it, will only cause it to destroy your records or sound bad. Weight adjustment is usually a very fine spring or counterweight that adjusts on the tonearm. Linear units use optical sensors to keep the tonearm aligned, but use traditional counterweights to control force. You need a gram scale made for phonos to properly adjust it. Radioshack USED to sell them 30 years ago, but most times you can just use a guess if the needle only slightly deflects when placed onm the record your usually good. If it's simply jumping and sliding across the record then the needle is shot. Even diamonds don't last forever,. as they are synthetically produced.
