Re: Problem playing 45 Records to their entirety.

There is an adjustment on the tone arm that you use to set where the tone arm picks up at the end of the record. This adjustment is normaly at the back (pivot point) of the tone arm and will be on the side probably. By the way, the tone arm is the part that the stylus is mounted to that swings back and forth to reach all the surface of the record. Make your adjustment and then test and continue doing this until you get it just where you want it. It is a process of trial and error. Good luck.

It's possible your weight adjustment has been mis-adjusted since you last used your turntable. On the tonearm, there should be a weight adjustment wheel. Turn this all the way towards the needle (IN). Now, adjust it backwards until there is no resistance in the tone arm - this is your zero point, reset the wheel on the weight adjustment knob to read 0. Now, adjust it forward to 3 grams of downward pressure. This is usually the minimum amount of force needed on a record. If it still skates at this setting, adjust it with gradual amounts of greater force until the skating stops.

Record skipping despite new needle

It could be something to do with the turnatable's platter. Is the matt that the record sits on faulty. Does the platter wobble up and down with no record on it? If you can see this happening you might need to check the platter out. If it's a belt driven the belt can come out of position causing such problems. Also objects can get stuck inside the platter. Especially if you have small children in the house!!!

I need a 45 adapter for my Philco turntable.

You are talking about the adapter that have to be inserted to center shaft of the player, before playing records of 45RPM I assumes. It can't be purchased from any spare parts selling shops. Contact the nearest authorised service center for Philco.

Record from cd to tape

In a shelf system the cords are interconnected and so all you need to do is to play the cd while there is a good cassette (the recording tab not broken) on the tape recorder.
Press recording/pause on the tape , play the Cd and release the pause so that the set records.

I just got this unit, and tried to put on a record, but the needle just goes strait to the center and wont actually play the record.....any suggestions???

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 sounds scratchy and tinny

Playing records is a contact sport.

Since the needle touches the record -- as opposed to a laser reading a CD -- any bit of dust or mold translates to annoying pops and hisses.

Record cleaners get down into the record grooves to extract dust and particles.

Or you may need a new needle.
