It is called a stylus and is part of a cartridge. There is a small release lever or it comes out as a plugin device. I cannot see where you are but eBay will have your stylus/cartridge for your turntable if a stereo shop is not nearby. Also any TV repair shop can order it for you. Steve Medley

How do I get a replacement needle for model #9408mo?


If you look at the cartridge that the stylus fits in you should see a make and model number for the cartridge. Put that into Google and the rest of your questions should be answered.
You don't need to phone anyone.

I have an old record player. It was made in the 80's according to my mom. I have recently started to use it( it hasn't been used since 86). With the exception of 45s, the record player will only play side...


I must say I have never come upon a record deck that will only play one side of a good condition record!
The only action I can suggest is to replace the belt if it's a belt driven deck. Please make a note of how it fits before removing the belt. But why any record deck would treat a new record any different on one side than the other will be a mystery to any good engineer.
The only exception would be if the deck played one side good then played up on every other record. Till it's switched off for a while, then repeats this action.
The cause of this fault would be a part overheating the longer the deck is left on. When you stop it to turn over, the system fails. This is however more likely to happen on a direct drive turntable, not a belt driven one.

Crosley CR40 playing 33 1/2 too fast? What can I do to slow it just a little bit?


I would get a vintage turntable and not a new one inexpensive one. The new record players do not last.

One side of my vinyl record will play fine but the other side won't spin right and the needle gets stuck on the record


The only thing you can do is clean the record with cleaning fluid. You will find special cleaning fluids for records on Amazon. If the record is warped you can try a weight pressing down on the record. But sadly if a record is warped bad there's no real cure.

I have a Crosley CR248 cd record player/recorder stopped working


If nothing lights up and the whole unit is dead, you may have a blown fuse, a bad power supply, or an electrical outlet that is not giving you power. (Don't laugh, it has happened to all of us... the "broken" thing wasn't plugged in or the outlet it was plugged into was off for some reason). Anyway, if the thing lights up and everything else in the system works except the turntable going 'round, perhaps there is a slipped or broken belt. Most late-model Crosley turntables have been belt drive, so the first thing to look at if everything else works is to press the buttons to start the record playing and then turn the record gently around with your finger on the label, making the whole platter turn clockwise when looking down at the record. Mechanically, the tonearm should cue up and pivot in to the record and it should gently drop onto the record. If you cue the tonearm up and move it in to the end of the last song on the LP and let it back down and turn the record again, it should follow the record's grooves into the center of the record and then lift and "park" the tonearm after everything is done. During the time the needle is on the record and you are turning the record, you should hear the record playing (it will sound bad, because you won't be turning at the right speed!), but that should indicate that the turntable is working mechanically and electrically.
If everything works like I mentioned except the record player won't make the record turn, the next step is to see why it isn't turning. you'll need to lift the plastic platter off the turntable. Most of these have a snap ring (usually a simple spring wire ring that doesn't go all the way around the center spindle. It may have an E-ring instead. Use a small screwdriver to pop this off and be sure to catch it, it might try to pop off the turntable and fly across the room! Lift the platter and you'll probably find a broken belt underneath. You'll have to replace that to make the records spin again. The hardest part is to locate a replacement belt! If nobody near you stocks belts (lol) then online outfits like LPGear.com can be a source. After you replace the belt and put the platter back on the player, remember to replace the snap ring. You might want to lubricate the platter's bearing with an appropriate lubricant, but that is your call as to whether that will be necessary. This is likely a styrene or simple thermoplastic plastic bearing, so be real careful what you use for a lubricant! if you're not sure, don't use anything! Like I said, it's not a difficult repair, it's just hard to find the part these days! Good Luck!

Broken needle on thorens TD 158 turn table.


Needle is a term used with 'record players' from the 60's. A turntable has a Phono Cartridge with a stylus. Depending on the brand / model of said cartridge the stylus may be replaceable. The cartridge certainly is. The tonearm is a delicate precision mechanism that will last lifetime if handled properly.

If you don't understand any of this I discourage you from taking any further actions without a knowledgeable mentor / technician looking over your ahoulder.

Crosley Record Player Stopped Spinning...


I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.

After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.

You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(

Turntable Sound Goes Flat


It could well be that the arm needs a re-wire. There could be a bad connection or a broken wire that makes a contact most of the time and then has a poor connection during the time you mention. Usually it is the wire that runs from the arm bearing to the wires that run out of the deck to the amp, as these are moving all the time. I find it is best to replace all the wire to save time in the long run. If you replace one part something else will always need replacing soon after.

Adjust pitch on a Califone turntable.


This one is actually fastened from underneath (inside). You need to open the player up and you will see the usual C shaped fastener on a cleat near the motor assembly. Most old direct drive record players have a C pin around the spindle that you can unfasten (pry with a twist) with a screwdriver. Irealize you figured this out yourself, but I'll take the guess work out for someone else... yeah..l you gotta take it apart!
