Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Garrard ap75 I cannot get the tonearm (i hope this is the right term) to move all the way to the end of the record, it just gets stuck two thirds of the way and does not progress along the record. Any ideas for what can be done to help it? The model (Garrard AP75) has three size settings at 33rotations, but it does not make a difference which one it is set on, the tonearem gets stuck. Thanks for the help.

SOURCE: Turntable tonearm returns but starts playing record over again.

http://www.vinylengine.com/library/pioneer/pl-570.shtml
on page 8 of the above service manual for your model it shows 4 electrical switches that tell the computer what 'state' the mechanism is in at any given time. Either one or more of the switches are intermittant or the mechanism has dried up grease that is slowing down the operation and basically gumming up the works. the old grease would have to be removed and replaced when it is causing binding. The switch just to the right of where is says "microswitch ksf-023" is an 'open air' type and so would be the most likely suspect. it simply needs to be cleaned with a super fine file designed only for cleaning switch contacts. THIS SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY!!!!!

SOURCE: my console can only play 45 rpm records

There should be a record size selector switch somewhere. It will move the arm to the positions for 12inch 7inch and 10inch records. It must be set to 7inch or 10 at the moment. For 33 it should be on '12' and for 45 on '7'.

SOURCE: Garrard 121 Mk2 turntable. Speed selector is stuck

These older type turntables are all mechanical. The selector has either broken, bent or stuck with grease.

First check to see you can turn the motor by hand. If it is stiff there's something wrong with the motor. If OK then have a look at the motor. If it works on 12 volts or under, you can attach a 9 volt battery PP9 type to it. If it's 6 volts, use a 6 volt battery! (You might have to remove any wires going to the motor to do the test). This should cause it to spin. If it doesn't it's dead. If it does check the voltage supply to the motor. Also check for broken plastic parts anywhere on the deck.

The tone arm gets about an inch in on the record, and then the needle starts sticking. I have tried 5 different records, including brand new ones, and it does the same thing.


Inside the turntable, find the point where the base of the tone arm goes through the top and inside. There is often an adjustment that controls the range of the tonearm. If it is an older TT, it likely got out of alignment. Adjust it so the arm moves freely, from the tonearm rest, to the end of the record, and picks up where it should (if it's semi-automatic at least). Best to use an old record you don't mind scratching as you do the adjustments. Every time it sticks you are damaging your records slightly.

Tone arm ejects before reaching the end of a record


You need to get a service manual for the turntable and see how to adjust the tonearm. Sometimes there is a screw that needs to be adjusted by the tonearm. It may have a rubber cap covering it.

Tonearm skips imediately to center of album


Your stylus is damaged or worn. Or some one may have spun the balancing weight at the rear of the tonearm. Reset the weight so that it will drop when two postage stamps are lain upon the stylus end of the arm.

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

Garrard turntable model 630s


There are a couple of things that need to be done here and there is no guarantee that the unit will work, but I have been successful in the past.

First remove the platter and clean all of the grease out of the unit. With all of hte grease removed, replace the platter and make sure that it turns freely. Regrease the unit one all of the old is removed. Next you will need to clean and treat the rubber drive wheel.

Good luck,

Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.


A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.

Arm Looping


Generally speaking, needle should follow the groove, if following not present:

1. dust and grime built up in the groove that stops need to pass. you should be able to hear "click, click, click" each time needle comes to the same spot. - clean your record in details.
2. cartridge/arm bias and weight too light causing needle to skid over path. - adjust the effective bias and weight according to cartridge spec.

If problem persist, write me again.

Technics mk2 tone arm replacement


once you soldered to circuit board place - this might help Advanced Tonearm stuff Tightening the suspension on your tonearm Some TT's have tonearms which seem to be loose. If you grab the tonearm and pull it gently back and forth and it seems loose you can tighten it. It shouldn't move at all. A loose suspension can severely affect it's performance - from jumping needles to binding. It's pretty easy to tighten the suspension. You'll need a small flat screwdriver and a large one. Use the large one to loosen the outer locking screw on the top of the pivot point. Now use the smaller screwdriver to loosen up the smaller screw. Put a drop of oil where the bearings are (under that top support on the other end of the adjustment screw) so that it doesn't bind. Now tighten the small screw slowly until it just contacts the bearings. Adjust the tightness so the tonearm doesn't wiggle if you pull on it but leave it loose enough for the tonearm to pivot freely without binding. Adjust carefully and don't overtighten otherwise the bearings will be damaged! When done, tighten up the locking screw. Tightening up the headshell locking ring Have you put on your headshell, twisted that knurled tightener at the end of the tonearm as tight as possible and have found that the headshell still moves around? What will happen is that the headshell won't sit parallel to the record but may be tilted as a result of twisting of the headshell. This usually occurs when you change headshells a lot or if you've had your turntable for a while, and can contribute to needle jumping so here's what you do to fix it. First read 3.2 on base disassembly. Remove the rubber base. There will be this big piece of hard black plastic covering almost everything. You'll need to remove it. To remove the tonearm assembly look for three screws (all formerly under that black plastic) and unscrew them. Be careful not to drop the tonearm when you remove that last screw! Now, remove the tonearm assembly from the rest of the 1200, and look at the bottom of the tonearm where the headshell is put in. There will be two tiny philips screws there. Get a jewelers screwdriver of the CORRECT size and tighten those up. Put the headshell on and try wiggling it to make sure everything is right. Now put your tonearm back on and close everything back up. hope this helps peace DJ Nyce
