Where can I find a replacement balance weight for the stylus arm on a Anders Nicholson 2655MMO turntable, cassette, CD player/recorder?


Balance weights can be removed and replaced easily. However when you say it snapped off, that could mean damage to the arm.
If everything is OK with the weight and you still have it, perhaps the weight could be "bodge" back into place. Perhaps with Blue Tack? If after all you can get the arm to balance correctly and apply the correct pressure to the stylus it doesn't really matter how the weight is attached does it? It might take a bit longer to set up correctly, but you might save some money if it needs a complete arm just to replace the weight!

Hi. I have a technosonic kha712 model and my needle skips over the first 10-15 seconds of the first song on every record. Is this fixable?


You could try increasing the weight at the end of the turntable arm. It will be a question of trial and error. Trying a record to see if it stops, but putting to much weight will make the sound rumble.
First however check to see if there's something on the arm somewhere that makes the record jump. Could be anything: muck, a pin, or a wire.

Every record skips in different places


You should look for an anti-skate control on the turntable and adjust that. It will be a question of trial and error with it as there is no fixed rules for these. The weight on the back of the arm should be set to the weight of your cartridge.

Specs for Technic Sl1210M5G Turntable


Anti skate should be set the same as the weight, i.e 3 gram of weight = 3 on the anti skate.

Needle skips


A needle is a precision part. Look to see if the needle has a conical point descending from the cartridge needle carrier. If not, replace the needle.
*Always protect the needle while you adjust things!
Pressure is essential for the needle to track. Turn the weight down until the needle just floats above the record. Zero the weight by turning just the weight indicator, not the weight. Now turn the weight to add 1.2 to 1.5 grams. (Always use the manufacturer's recommended weight if different!)
A level surface is important. Make sure the turntable is level.
Test the arm bearings:
Adjust the weight until the arm floats. With a feather, gently push the arm towards the center. Now gently push it back. The arm should move smoothly with no hesitation and easily. Reset the weight to 1.5 grams or less.
If your cabinet is moving when you walk around, the records will skip. Find a different place for the turntable or don't walk around. In severe cases, raise the weight to 1.75 to 2 grams, but this wears the needle fast an can cause distortion.

Well on my technics MK2 1210's, the little anti sketch settings and all the others probably arent set to what they are supposed to be, because my needle arm keeps jumping :P could someone tell me what all...


There are two main things that will influence the anti skate settings.

1) The Headshell Weight and Balance
Firstly, check the data sheet for the cartridge and stylus you are using. It should tell you the correct weight setting which will vary from one cartridge and stylus to another. If the stylus is set too light, it can skate across the disc. This can damage the disc and the stylus. The sound will also be thin and it is likely to distort on high frequencies. If the weight is too heavy, it will not jump but will definitely damage the disc.

If you are a serious vinyl user, get yourself a tone arm balance. This is a device that you place on the turntable and you rest the stylus on a plate which is marked in micrograms. You place the stylus exactly at the correct weight marking and then make adjustments to the turntable settings until the tone arm is balanced. It's easier than it sounds!

If you don't have the data sheet for your cartridge and stylus and cannot find it online, use an old disc that you don't mind damaging, set the weight on the light side and gradually increase the weight until it stops skating.

2) Platter Levelling
Secondly, you need to make sure your turntable us on a level surface. If you are a purist, use a spirit level. to do this.

There are other things that can cause skating and jumping, especially if you use the turntable as a DJ. For example, vibration (caused hopefully by dozens rocking to your music). DJs will often increase the headshell weight very slightly to overcome this and I have sometimes placed the turntables on a thick rubber sheet such as carpet underlay to improve shock absorption.

JOG MODE


if the arm jos, check the effective weight. if might be too light.
if you do not have equipment,
1. keep the arm in balance / floating level,
2. adjust the weight at back to allow the cartridge to fall, little by little, until it does not jog.
3. then adjust the counter-balance bias, little by little if you do not have the spec.
