REmoving needle from my P-A688 Teac Turntable

I can't figure out how to remove the needle from my turntable. When I pull on the cartridge it won't come off. I have never removed a needle before so I am not sure if the cartridge just slides off or there is something else that is supposed to be done?

Why is there no music being transmitted from turntable to sound system?


If the amps connected to the deck have no dedicated "phono" socket / setting you will only hear weak sound. However you can get a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. This connects between the turntable and amp and makes the signal the same level as what would come off say a tape recorder.

Need a new belt


Measure the old belt, make certain you know how it fits before removing. You need the diameter and width in MM. You don't need to be spot on with these! Put the results with the words "Turntable belt XXmm by XXmm" into Google.

Is this a moving coil or a moving magnetic cartridge turnatable. I have a pre-amp that requires an appropriate connection


As cartridges can be replaced, even if it is not a Magnetic cartridge you can replace it with one that is.

Hi, the belt on our Teac Turntable has come off while moving to new home. Can I get manual that shows how to put it back on?


If you open the top lid of your turntable, you will see a black rubber disc that sits on the pladder, it should come off revealing the metal pladder, you should see holes that will show your belt and the turntable motor when pladder is rotated. In order to put the belt back on you must remove the pladder, but before you do check to see if there is a C clip holding it down, after removing the clip the pladder should come off, put the belt on the inner rim of the pladder, now slowly work the pladder on the spindle make sure one of the pladder holes allows you to see the motor, put a small blunt object between the belt and the inner pladder and use it to stretch the belt to slip over motor then push the pladder down and rotate it making sure the belt is turning with the motor, next replace the rubber disc and finally the C clip if it is present.

Turntable belt is off.


Under the felt of the turning platter section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Teac P-988 turntable Need to change needle


http://www.turntableneedles.com/search.asp?keyword=211-d&search=GO

don't replace the cartridge. it is "built-in" (not user-replaceable) needle options are at above links. The different prices of the "211" needles are different quality levels. All of which will fit in your cartridge.

My TEAC P688 is stuck in chipmunk mode for a large record - how do I slow it down?


Sometimes on the base of the turntable (under side) there are two presets one for the 45 speed and one for the 33. They might be hidden under a label or something. You might even have to go inside to find them. Anyway a small flat head screwdriver inserted in it should adjust the speed. You might have to work out which controls 33 speed. And of course if it is below you will have to figure out how to adjust it with a record playing. "Get out and get under!!!!" as they said about cars!

The belt on my turn table came lose


01- Remove the rubber cushion.
02- Remove the Turntable Platter
03- Place your drive belt around the ridge inside the platter
(Make sure that it is not twisted)
04-Place your Turntable Platter back on the unit
05-rotate your platter until you can see a brass knob through one of the round holes in the turntable. (Your belt must be placed around the brass knob) The best way is to take a toothpick and carefully slide it under the drive belt and then pull it out enough that you can place it around the knob. I had the same problem and the above works. If you still have problems getting it back on contact me 352-377-1828......
