Question about Kenwood KD-291RC Turntable
I replaced the stylus and at that point began to have difficulty with the tone arm floating. I'm a novice and new to turntable repair.
I think that the problem is: first ofvall set you tt waterpass , if you put the weight that the arm floats, and the you use the anti skip, does it still moves from right to left and backwards or get you the feeling that it stucks , which can be overtightend bearings or just needs a
pro to watch it, i'm free tuesday:)

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.
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 Direct Readout Stylus Pressure 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 Direct Readout Stylus Pressure control. Play records.

A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.
Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.
I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.
