Take the whole unit, open the window, toss the unit out the window and replace with something decent as this TT is a pile of junk and is probably ruining your records. Problem solved.

Ease the red part off using a modelling knife. It may be helpful to unclip the cartridge (clip at the front) in order to do this. The old stylus should come away easily-it is located by two lugs at the back and one at the front. The new one just clicks into place. I performed this opetation today and it took 5 mins.

I have a Kenwood KR V6090 tuner amp. Can anyone please tell me if I need a record deck with or without a pre amp fitted.


Hi. Some amplifiers provide power for a record deck (or you mean a vinyl record player). Some vinyl record player have their one amplification system, some don't. Those with the amplification system work fine on older amplifiers but others require a back-up power, like a transformer to provide power for the record player. You need to enquire with the store person on the type of record deck or record player you can use directly with the V6090. I had an early Pioneer Amplifier and a matching record player so that I could play the vinyl disc and LP's on full volume. Later I switched to digital Pioneer 7 channel. This couldn't accept the record player because it did not have a power substitute like the older Pioneer. So, when the record player plays, no signal is being sent to the amplifier and therefore, no music is heard, except from the needle.

Record continously skips after 4 or 5 seconds.


You need to apply more pressure to the stylus. This is done by adjusting a weight on the other end of the arm. See your manual for more details.

DVD portion was intermittent on reading portion & now does not work at all. VCR side records fine & tuner works ok. Was there a problem with these units.


Like all DVD Players & Recorders the Laser only has a certain life span before it burns out. Some last longer than others and most aren't cost effective or viable to replace.

In your case it's even worse beause you'd have to replace the complete DVD Mechanism.

Hi Kathy, record players put out a very low level signal, you need a phono input stage for the amp to handle this input. If your amp does not have a phono input, many new amps do not ( check your instruction manual) .. then you will need to buy a phono pre amp which will match the record player to your amp. You can get this from your dealer.

Hope this helps

The record player skips


Hi There,
From your description it sounds like there is insufficient weight on the needle end of the pick up arm.

The pickup arm is very delicate in its balance at the "rear arm end" fulcrum.

This weight is adjustable to allow the needle to press on the music track to an exact pressure and it is adjustable so that this pressure does not damage the music track.

There should be a wheel type thingy at the rear end of the pickup arm.

This wheel is usually marked in Grams, and to make the needle end heavier to stop "skipping' you turn the wheel to wards the + sign.
This + sign means more weight on the needle.

There also should be a - sign, and the wheel, when turned in that direction, the weight on the needle is reduced.
You need to be aware that a needle really needs to exist in the cartridge as they can be broken off very easily and if there is no needle present there, then there is no way you will get any music from the turntable.

So check there really is a needle there...use a magnifying glass to see....

If thats OK then place the needle end of the pickup arm on to the record surface and turn the weight wheel until the needle just lifts from the record surtface.
Now that this stage has been received turn the weight wheel in the reverse direction by around 5-7 grams in the heavy + direction.

The needle should now be resting on the records surface and not lifting at all.

It should play like this,,,BUT please ensure the record player is on a perfectly flat surface the
needle wont work on any incline at all...

If you turn the amp on in the phono switch position and carefully hold the needle over the record and touch the needle with your finger you should get a scratchy sound from the speakers.....

This is a basic test to ensure the amplifier and all the wiring is in place and doing its job..
Im Sorry you had a run around from the repair company but some of them are not interested in repair work any more they just want to sell new hardware...
It pays to ask if they are Pepared to repair stuff for you , then get a commitment of a reasonable repair date and time in writing.

If this date and time is exceeded then you dont have to pay for the repairs do you??
As they have missed the service level agreement you had with them for the reapir date and time..

Hope this helps
From
YUBEUT..
