Hi, sounds more like tje stylus tip is gone and therefore the needle isn't holding to the grooves rather than a tracking weight or anti skate problem. Styluscity@gmail.com

SOURCE: I just set up my
KEEP THE ANTI SKATE AT 0 FOR NOW,then you need 2 balance the tonearm with the rear counterweight so it just hovers at around the height of the platter.now you need to zero the gauge on the rear counterweight being carefull not to turn the counterweight,then check again that the tonearm still hovers.then screw counterweight inwards untill the dial on counterweight reads between 1.5- 2 grams dependin on tracking weight of cartridge.then adjust antiskate 2 whatever u set the tracking weight to.i would also double check with a spirit level ur level surface

The weight should be set to the position recomended by the cartridge maker. Typically 1.5 to 2.5. If you don't know the makers setting, set it at 1.5 and work upwards. The stylus should track nicely in the record groove and not jump. But not too heavy as to cause rumble in the sound. Set the skate control low and again try the record out, if the stylus starts to skate accross the record increase the force. It's a case of experimentation with no fixed rules on these settings. Some records might need adjusments afterwards.
