Technics TT qd22 buttpns stopped working

I am the original owner of a Technics qd22 rarely used. Soon after changing the stylus (old one broken during cleaning?) the tone arm stopped returning after playing a record. Soon the cueing button stopped working followed by the stop button. Now returning the tone arm to its resting position does not stop the disk from spinning. I can only use it manually and have to stop it by using the on/off button, which still works. Sound performance is still great. How can I fix it?

SOURCE: Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249

Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John.

I have a turntable connected to my technics hifi system but the volume is very low the hifi system is the sc-dv 290 help woud be apricaited

I imagine it is also tinny. Is your unnamed TT self-preampified?

It always helps to know some details about BOTH parts of the scenario when they don't work together. I'm sure the TT's manual would identify how to use it.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify and frequency-correct the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge. Look up RIAA equalization.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection AND your TT doesn't have a self-contained preamp you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

eBay always has some...

Arm weight needs adjusting...albums are skipping. how do I do this? thank you.

If you have a guard for the stylus, consider using it or be very careful with the following.
To balance the tonearm, rotate the counterweight at the back of the tonearm one way or the other until the arm floats - doesn't go up or down, just sits there level. Set the scale to zero.
THEN, rotate it inward (clockwise when viewed from the back) until it is correct for your cartrridge. If you're not sure of a correct setting, start with 1.5 gm and see how that goes.
If the TT has an anti-skate adjustment (a small knob with scale around the base of the tonearm, set that to whatever you set the tonearm pressure for.
If it still doesn't track OK, add pressure in 1/4 gm increments but do not exceed 2 gm in all but very rare cases.

Service manual for yamaha tt600

Hi, Gen4o02 the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day YAMAHA TT600R Service Manual

New cartridge for Technics SL -BD22D

the prestige gold might be a little bit of overkill for this turntable meaning the turntable is middle of the road and the cartridge is hi-end.

To get a closer match for your TT try a yahoo search for "AT3482P-DE" (with the quotes) and the result will be the closest match to what this turntable is designed for. also you can find your TT's owner manual here but you will have to register to download the free manual. in that manual you will find the shape of the drawings for the cartridge is the same. both made by audio technica
