I need a new needle

What you need to do is look at the cartridge and find the model number of it. When you have that put it in Google and search for it. The stylus should be seen with that.

the tone arm need adjustment by a techician or you could try a new needle.

When testing use a record that is in good condition but not one you like.

Record player needle

Salutations virtualfrog,

This is a slightly difficult question, mainly because it would depend on the type of stylus you have on your unit.

But making an educated guess on the age of your system I would assume you have a standard replacement cartridge which would be available from at:

Unfortuatenly this is the only replacement "neede" we offer.

If your cardtridge doesn't look like your current one, another good option would be to use a search engine and search for "phono cartridge" there should be specialty retailers who have the replacement part.

Hope you get to spin that vinyl soon.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Emerson NR305TT - Replacement Turntable Needles

I have the same model. Though I haven't replaced the needle yet, I was able to remove the broken one. You'll see that the arm has a red plastic attachment. It houses the needle in a very thin strip of something like electrician's tape. There is a very small separation on the front (end of the arm facing you) of the tone arm, where the arm (black plastic) and needle "cartridge" (red plastic) come together. I used a metal nail file and pried them apart very gently. At this point the red plastic "cartridge" with the broken needle was hanging but still connected on either side. The red plastic "cartridge" is made with tiny plastic 'bumps' that pop into indentations built into the black plastic of the arm. Again, using my metal nail file, I simply held the arm and pried the red plastic "cartridge" away from one side. It popped off the other immediately and fell away from the arm. Voila!

Hope this helps!
