Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a DeJAY sp30 record player. It plays 45 records fine, but the lp's drag. I think it has something to do with the weight of the arm but I'm not sure.

SOURCE: Needle drag

Hi, i know this sounds stupid but have u tried using a different record as the record your using may have a defect which wont allow it to play any further. I would also make sure that you weight the tonearm as much as possible but not to much that you wear ur needles out. Let me know how you get on. Gud luck!

SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: Tone arm skipping records.

The anti skate adjustment. And if you scratch @ all....move the weight all the way in and take off the little extra one that screws in on the back. Also a great tracking needle is a M44G.

When I play a record, and the gripper arm is in front the tone arm lands on the wheel and does not land on the 45


Some decks have a selector switch for 7inch and 12inch records. You need to find it and select the 7 setting. However you will need to switch it back to 12 if you want to play an LP.

Why won't our arm on our record player advance to play record on auto control? Lifts, moves back and returns to original position.


Try adjusting the counterweight on the back. Average weight setting is 1 gram. most high end RPs have it and it's a 'turn clockwise to increase' deal.
If it's a cheapo, there may be something interfering with the arm. possible a spiderweb inside! or??

When we try to play LP records, the arm stops half way through the record and wont move any further so we cant listen to the whole LP. We always make sure we have it switched to the correct rpm.


If it's on ONE particular record, it may have a deep groove that the needle cannot move past. It could also be that you don't have enough pressure on the needle which you can adjust on the arm with a turn of the counter-weight (should be a knob on the other end from the needle)

Tone arm not lifting when record is over


Hello Caufield,

Ideas... Yes, indeed,

But without a MAKE or MODEL they focus
a lot on ESP & other psychic capabilities...

(Mind reading: The lack thereof)... Sorry...!!

In ye olden daze...
when I was young the (stacked record CHANGERS &
simple turn table) TONE arms were largely Rube
Goldberg
electro-mechanical thingy-ma-call-it...
that triggered off of the wag action of the center grooves ...
(in all 78, 45 and 33 rpm records (once upon a time)).
Rube Goldberg Wikipedia

Without BENEFIT of year, make or model... ONE
might ACTUALLY look at the mechanical MECHANISM
and SEE the broken or missing spring, link or cam...

The very first/last action of ARM CONTROL was
the lift/lay action of the tone arm..

Without that FUNCTION "working" you are just
ruining records & needles...

My best advice would be to REPOST with
a hint of the proper nomenclature... I'm pretty sure
an appropriate volunteer expert will step forward.

Try it... you will like it and it is still totally FREE

The arm with the needle slides across the LP record - doesn't pick up sound


This is often a problem when you are using a 78 needle on a 45 or 33 record. Some needles can be flipped, so check to see if yours is able to flip between the 78 and 33 setting. If not, you may simply need a new one.

All the arm does whenever I try to play a record is move across the record. This even happens with a brand new needle. I'm ready to get a new turntable.


there is a counter balance on the side of the arm called an anti skating weight.it prevents the grooves on the record from pushing the stylus inward,wearing out one side.when the anti skate weight system has a fault,it drags the arm toward the center of the record faster than needed.there is also a weight on the back of the arm.that is the balance.when set to zero,the arm should balance.then the weight is turned to 1 gram or so.if there is not enough force downward,the anti skate mechanism will drag the arm inward.

Why would it stop recording in the middle of a


1st question. What stops recording? Or do you mean the turntable stops playing in the middle of the LP?

2nd question. The weight to set depends on the cartridge fitted. If the cartridge says 4 grams for it set at that. The trick is to set it so that it keeps in the groove of the record and not jumping, except on bad records of course. If you pick up a lot of rumble (during the gaps for instance) it will have too much weight on. On the back of the arm should be a ring or something with numbers on. Turn it till a number matches the indicator mark. The number you chose should match the weight required.
They used to sell a gauge for stylus pressure. Don't know if you can still get them.
