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.

How do I get a replacement needle for model #9408mo?

If you look at the cartridge that the stylus fits in you should see a make and model number for the cartridge. Put that into Google and the rest of your questions should be answered.
You don't need to phone anyone.

What is required to convert 78rpm records to mp3 format?

The cartridge must have a stylus for 78rpm records. If the turntable does not have a 78 speed play it back at 45rpm. Record it and using the software you have or get one such as Audio Cleaning Lab, just select the option to convert from 45 to 78. You can then carry out any audio modifications to clean it up, then save it as an MP3.
Never use a 45/33 stylus to play a 78 and never use a 78 to play a 45/33 record.

I have a Crosley Keepsake turntable which plays 33 1/3 rpm records perfectly. However, when I try to play 45rpm records the sound is very distorted, especially the vocals which sound as though they are...

The only thing (I think) that would cause a 45 to play badly and the 33 not, is either the cartridge or stylus, most likely the stylus. It's either worn or damaged, so it fits badly in the larger grooves of 45's then the smaller ones of 33!
The signal coming from the cartridge is the same on 45 as it would be from 33.

My record stylus slides across records

There are a couple of reasons this is happening. First and formost gently lift the stylus arm and blow any and all dust off of the needle.You may even have to gently 'pinch' off any accumulated dust. Be careful since you don't want to pull the playing needle off.
This is a very common problem. If this does not help, you need a new stylus needle for the arm.

I have a mid 1970s Sears turntable with am/fm, casette, and 8-track. It plays older vinyl just fine and even one new 45 but my new 33 skips a lot. Could it be the record, do I need a new needle, any...

My suggestion is ask a friend etc with a turntable to try the new LP and see if it bounces on there's. If it plays your old stuff it most likely doesn't need a new stylus. Records are records they don't make them any different to what they used to. Check the new LP, is it warped does it have marks where it jumps?

My console can only play 45 rpm records

There should be a record size selector switch somewhere. It will move the arm to the positions for 12inch 7inch and 10inch records. It must be set to 7inch or 10 at the moment. For 33 it should be on '12' and for 45 on '7'.

Pioneer PL-670 record rejects continually

Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.
