The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?

Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

Record player repair


The top arm that swings over the spindle will control the automatic return. Leave the unit off. Swing the overhead holding top arm over and manually load a record. Now switch the top arm over the niddle spindle. Make sure that the switch is set for 7", 10" or 12" (45, 78, or 33). Manually place the tonearm at the start of the record and flip switch to 'play' (not reject or auto). It should play the whole record and automatically eject at the end and then shut off. Leave the arm swung over the middle after you loaded the record. Good luck. Let me know if you have any more questions.

My Denon DP-26F tonearm does not return "all" the way when finished playing a record.


Tonearm can be adjusted to travel back to its support. At the base of the tonearm is a small rubber stopper. Remove the stopper and insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot beneath. Turn to the left and then test arm for repositioning correct. Adjust until its correct. John

I have a Crosley CR49 turntable and the tonearm seems to be misaligned. I lift the cue lever and place the tonearm where I want it to land on the record, but when I lower the cue lever the tonearm moves...


that situation is possible that it is bent a little. make sure your table is level when using it and check the weight in the back to see if its too far out leaving the tone are to bounce of drift easily. you can manually put the needle down in the meantime.

Well im not too sure if my needle is broken but when i play a record i cannot hear sound and it sounds like my record is being scratched. Do i need to keep the white cap on the needle or not? or is it just...


It's called a stylus. What red or white caps are we talking about? Some phono cartridges come with stylus guards that flip up out of the way for play or down to protect the stylus from damage while in storage or during tonearm balancing. The stylus needs to touch the record groove directly.

Tonearm goes to record and returns to start position without ever playing the record


Do you have an adjustable piece at the end nearest the pivot point [the bit that goes into the turntable] if you do then adjust the weight so there is more downward pressure on the record [ or just try putting weight on the tonearm ] and see if this helps

Tonearm/ scratchy audio


The transport screw is just for stabilising the suspension for moving the turntable. Just put it in the position that allows the turntable to bound up and down a bit when you poke it.

As for the skating of the tonearm, it's just that the tracking force is set too high. I don't know your turntable, so can't tell you quite where the tracking force adjustment is, but it's likely a dial close to where the tone arm pivots. A test record (with test tones) is a great way to adjust that, but otherwise repeated listening to a record will help you - make sure that the loud parts of a track distort equally on both speakers.

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

When i backspin the arm is forcing itself off the vinyl


IMO the problem can be solved in 2 ways, either move the counterweight on the back of the arm towards the turning point of the arm ( by just adjusting it 10 - 20 % of an whole spin you can adjust a lot), or buy an other needle which is heavier then this one...

Some sounds are lower in songs


Well, it seems you answered your own question. Replace your stylus. If that doesn't solve your problem, the issue might be your RCA cables or tonearm.

What many people don't understand is that it takes ALOT to wear out a record. I mean, you would have to play a record about a good 1000 times before you'll see any sort of real wear/tear on it. Why do you think they last so long? Besides, record wear doesn't sound like that. With TRUE record wear you'll experience lots of skipping from your stylus, as the grooves have worn down. Also, you'll get alot of pan issues, where the sound goes in/out left/right side. The grooves of a record are a V shape, and the left side of the V carries the left signal, and the right side carries the right signal. With record wear, usually 1 side will wear out quicker than the other, and that's why you'll get inconsistencies with sound.

Unless you play the same record over and over again for the past few years, you wont see this kind of wear.

Replace your stylus first, then have your RCA cables and tonearm checked. Try cleaning out your tonearm with 99.9% PURE ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL and see if that does anything.

Good luck
