SOURCE: techniques SL-D1 Turntable anti skid...

Actually, this sounds like the needle is damaged. Make sure there is a tip on there. Just because it's new, does not mean it is not damaged. Sometimes end-users improperly handle the stylus/needle when installing.

If you are 100% certain that the stylus is ok, then the anti-skate needs to be set correctly. Generally, leaving it on 0 (zero) is ok to start. Then try and balance your tonearm according to THESE INSTRUCTIONS. These instructions apply to most turntables. The fundamentals are the same for all turntables in that you need to balance (float) your tonearm for optimal use.

Hope this helps some.

You need a belt.. Lift up the record support..(platter) Underneath you will see a metal post.. Belt goes around that and the bottom of the plate.(there is a rim) . If the belt is there, motor might be bad..

SOURCE: Technics SL-BD22 ground wire does not reduce hum. Any solutions?

I have found out that the female phono plugs on the turntable are sensative and have to have a solid connection and often adjusted from time to time to eliminate the 60 cycle hum.

Why douen't my technics turntable spin?


Take off the rubber mat and see if the belt is off the aluminum platter the record sits on you should be able to see the rubber belt when the mat is removed. If it is not there or broke it will need replaced.

I've just set up my Technics SL D212 turntable after moving house. It keeps skidding across records. I've tried the usual adjustments and leveled the turntable. Any clues?


Please make 100% certain the needle is still in place... To test this *GENTLY* rub your fingertip over it and you should hear noise from the speakers when you do. If there is NO noise then there is likely no needle.
Did you put the protective device on the needle/arm for the move? Is it still on there?
Sorry Mate, that the only thing I've got to help....

I have a Technics SL-QL1 direct drive turntable that works perfectly for about 5 seconds, then it suddenly repeats itself over and over... the record never advances beyond that point. It happens with any...


I don't think it's the direct drive as that just makes the platter spin around. Since the stylus sits in a record which moves it forward, if it gets stuck then it's going to be something to do with the arm of the record player that can't move beyond that point. Check around the piviot of the arm for problems and look at the anti-skating control. If you can move the platter by hand that will prove it's not the drive if the stylus gets stuck.

I bought a very nice toshiba record player arm won't move


I am not familiar with that particular model, but the hum is probably the motor. I would check to see if the belt has slipped off or even exists. I'll look it up tonight and update this if I find out more.

Needle skipping & not pushing down


There should be an "anti-skate" adjustment to control the arm moving across the record. It is possible that lubrication has stiffened up as well. This unit may need a general overhaul/cleaning.

Turntable wont spin


If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.
