Provided the replacement stylus is the correct one for the cartridge you have, it should just slide in from the front of the tone arm into the cartridge.

SOURCE: Need a cartridge stylus with headshell

I also own this turntable. The latest research I found on this unit is the needle is made by Crosley. This is the same brand that makes those nostalgic looking all in one audio products. If you can find who carries the Crosley replacement needles for those units it will fit the Ion turntable.

Can i use a crosley stylus in my detrola km837 record player


Stylus will only fit into certain cartridges. You have two options here. You can look up the cartridge number and make on your Detrola. It should be on the cartridge somewhere. Then search for the stylus. Or you can remove the Detrola cartridge and fit a new cartridge and stylus. As long as the cartridge will fit into the arm of your deck, plus it's the right type - ie: magnetic if the old cartridge was magnetic! Or ceramic - again if the old cartridge was...
Then you can use any make or model cartridge you want. As the quality of the sound can be improved - albeit paying more money for it - by having a good quality cartridge and stylus, it might be best in the long run to change the cartridge.

How do i change a stylus on aiwa PXE88


Hi, Grip the stylus between your thumb and forefinger. Pull the stylus down toward the front. As it comes loose replace the downward motion with a forward one. When fitting new stylus insert the tongue of the stylus into the groove in cartridge. Push it backward into place and then upward. John. Stylus City.

Not sure which stylus fits my sl-2500 cartridge


The proper stylus is the best you can afford. However the cartridge itself will only take certain types. To find which simply enter the cartridge make and model number into Google and see what comes up.
Actually most hi-fi buffs say it's the cartridge and stylus combined that gives the best sound, since many cartridges fit only one stylus it's often the cartridge that is the real choice. Most turntables will take a wide range of cartridges, so you pay your money and take your pick.

My turntable does not have good sound? Is it the stylus needle?


It could be, first check all connections as they can come loose. It could also be the cartridge, the only way to find out is to get a new one. If you get a cartridge and stylus, you can fit the new stylus to your old one, if that solves the problem, you have a spare cartridge in stock, if it doesn't then replace the cartridge. If that doesn't work and the connections are good, then there is a fault on the magnetic cartridge pre-amp in your amp.

The needle is broken off can it be fixed for less then the turntable cost?


Yes it can. On the head of the arm if you look carefully where the needle (to give it's correct name -stylus) is. What it fits into is a cartridge. If you can see letters or numbers on it that will be the type. If you put that into Google it should find it. You should find if it is possible to buy the stylus with or without the cartridge. Though it's often cheaper to buy both. The cartridge will either be screwed onto the head or just clipped on someway. You will find four wires attached to the cartridge. These will have to be removed if you have to replace the cartridge. Make a note of how each wire attaches to the cartridge. As long as you can get a cartridge to fit the headshell you can use any magnetic cartridge for the job. All you would need to do with a different cartridge is adjust the weight to apply the correct pressure to the stylus.
If the cartridge doesn't have any number etc on it, put the make/model number of the turntable into Google adding cartridge/stylus.

Turntable arm slides across record, Am. D.J.-1500


See what type of cartridge is installed in the arm. Manufacturers use common cartridges in turntables, such as Stanton, Shure etc. Detach the head shell from the arm (it usually slips right off via a locking ring and four-pin mini plug) Look for the manufacturer and model number on the cartridge. No need to remove it from the head shell. On most modern cartridges, the stylus (as they are called, rather than the needle) simply slips off and on. No need to remove the entire cartridge (via screws) and re-align it. In fact, many DJs bring a set spare cartridges and styli on a gig, already mounted in head shells, and simply interchange them as needed. When you have the make and model of the cartridge, go to Radio Shack or use their website to order a new one...or  two. Or go to Google and enter "phono stylus" as your search term. You will find reasonably priced styli for nearly every cartridge imaginable. I operate 50 year-old turntables and am able to find replacement cartridges and styli on line. Ebay also has a number of listings, by make and model of the cartridge. When the new stylus arrives, observe how easily the old one comes out of the cartridge- usually pull and slide - and slide the new one in. Re-insert the head shell on the arm, tighten the locking ring, and you're good to spin!

We need to know the model number of the CARTRIDGE itself. Doesn't matter what turntable you have. All that matters is what cartridge is mounted on the turntable, so that we can match the correct stylus. The stylus/needle connects to the Cartridge:

As the diagram shows, the stylus mounts to the cartridge, which then mounts to the headshell. This headshell is then connected to the tonearm (tube).

So, if you look at the cartridge you should be able to see the model number. If not, there is no way to match up the stylus, as ther are literally THOUSANDS of styli on the market. I would suggest purchasing a NEW cartridge/stylus combination. The following should fit your model:
