Looking for turntable and stylus for OLD RCA stereo system

My father has an OLD RCA stereo system (It's the kind that sits on 4 legs in a cabinet type setup with speakers built in.) We are looking for a turntable and stylus to go in it. Model No. RP277-120 Serial number 73720208. Mfg. RCA.
Is there such a replacement to be found anywhere?

Thank you,
Janice Keen

    The solution you gave did not provide a result. Radio Shack carries nothing even close to what I am looking for? This is a very old system (1960's - 70's).

    Why is it not possible to be directed to an exact company for ordering what I need?

    The othere sources you listed for me to contact do not have a stylus or turntable to match the RCA brand.

    You said the replacement would be pricey.
    My father said price is not a problem.

    I guess RCA is out of business, but didn't anybody take over their business and production?

    Please give me a direct site to order this.

    Thank you,
    Janice

No sound from turntable


If the tonearm settles down on the record, but still no sound, check the stylus. If it settles down, but skates towards to center spindle, you stylus is definitely bad. If all that seems OK, you may have an issue with the phono preamp. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

I just inherited an old Zenith console turntable and stereo combined. Stereo sounds wonderful, but when I play records, the sound isn't loud. Is this a problem with the needle or what? When I touch the...


Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"

If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.

Hope it helps

One channel vocals drop out


yes, it is very likely the stylus. the stock needle is conical shaped like a ball point pen. You might have a tonearm that is out of alignment but usually it's the needle. It is possible it is just dust on the tip but if it occurrs in consistent areas of the record, then it is likely that the music is just too demanding for the LP2D you will either have to use your old technics which is likely better quality or you could try upgrading the stylus on your LP2D.
If you do a yahoo search for "4-211-DE-GUARD" with the quotes, the 1st result will take you to an elliptical upgrade over the stock needle. The elliptical tip will pull more info out of the grooves and into your computer for further processing.

Connecting a turn table to a micro stereo system


You will need the following to connect this to that system:

1) Phono Pre-amp
2) 3.5mm to RCA adapter or 3.5mm 'Y' cable to RCA
3) Turntable

Your turntable will connect to the Phono Pre-Amp input. This pre-amp will also have an output. This output is RCA, from here you connect to your system using the 3.5mm adapter or cable.

That's it.

Recording one channel only


I had the same problem on a turntable and it was the cable, those rca cables are notorious for breaking inside at the plug end. The stylus cartridge not being completely plugged in may cause it too I imagine. I'd bet it's the right rca cable broken inside at the plug end.
