I have purchased two ARK IV white elliptical Stylus replacement needles for my turntable and I am not getting the life out of these items, despite very limited play time. Seems like they just wear down...


What's the turntable? Skipping across the record would be a (mal)function of tracking and anti-skating. The recommended tracking force for this stylus os 3.0 grams. I've been out of the vinyl groove for some years now but I remember my Shure M95 tracking in the range of 1-1.5 g. Railroad spikes track at 3.0. Is this for 'scratching' or whatever it is they call that noise?

I have an older QL-45 turntable that needs tone arm adjustment- I don`t know how to set the weight so it doesn`t lower down to album so hard or heavily


I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

Make a note of the tracking force setting.


Make sure the turntable is level.


Unplug the power to the turntable.

Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.

Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.

Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.

Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.

Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.

Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.

Return the tonearm to its rest.

Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.

Looking for a stylus for old sansui turntable model FR-D25??? Any suggestions


It is next to impossible to find a replacement stylus, I suggest replacing the cartridge which will include the stylus giving you the flexibility to make a choice on what you prefer.

Here's a procedure for setting the tonearm...

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable and place it on a perfectly level surface.

Set the Tracking Force and AntiSkating to 0.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter Clockwise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
If you don't have a Stylus Tracking Force Gauge. Dial in the prescribed tracking force and a corresponding anti-skate reading. Play records.

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

I balanced my tonearms correctly. i think .. but the stylus jumps off the record and when i back spin (cue) the needle skates drasticly. can you walk me through the balancing proceedure and tell me how to...


Balancing the tone arm is a two step process. Set the needle weight adjustment to zero(0) and make sure that the tone arm is balanced. It should rest horizontally without touching anything. Next, set the needle weight (usually 1.5 grams). Both adjustments should be on the rear of the tone arm. That should cause the tone arm to drop toward the record and have the correct pressure for the needle. Also, check the anti-skate adjustment. If that is off, the behavior you describe will occur as well.

Fisher turntable M-720 need to set weight and return levels


Hi mariahom

Setting the tracking force is an easy task. Try this method.

  1. first thing to do with the tone arm sitting above its rest, rotate the weight on the end of the tone arm until the tone arm is balanced in the middle. neither up nor down, just right in the middle.
  2. calibrate the numbered rotating collar on the weight so that 0 is exactly on the reference line on the tone arm.
  3. then turn the weight and numbered collar together to the tracking force that you are seeking. Most moving magnet cartridges need at least 1.5grams of weight. Set it for 2 grams if you are unsure of what your is or needs.
  4. adjust the anti skate dial(if you have one) to the same number as the tracking force you are using.
At this point you should be able to gently bounce the tone arm on your index finger(not above the record of course). This is about all there is to it.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.

If your new reciver does not have a turntable input, you can purchase a phono preamp and simply plug the turntable into the preamp and the output of the preamp to an aux or tape input of the new reciver. they should have it or be able to get it at radio shack. Or look up online or build one as I had to do as im a cheap skate, but I know what I have now..Check this out. i included the preamp i built so i can still use my collection of vinal with my surround sound system. Good luck and please dont forget to rate this thread.
