I don't know what you are referring to as sub weights. Everything you need is already on the tonearm.First you have to balance the tonearm, then you adjust for stylus pressure and anti-skating. For more information, please my website at Thank you.

    Apparently, you are not familiar with the Denon DP-7F turntable. It has an electronically controlled, fully automatic tonearm. The manual does advertize subweights (0.1,0.2 and 0.25g) to help balance the arm.

    Tracking force: 1.25g (fixed) Suitable cartridge: T4P plug-in connector type. This type of tonearm takes a P Mount cartridge. The balance and tracking force are specifically designed for the P mount. All P mount cartridges are the same weight, and use the same tracking force, as well as the anti-skating. I've never seen one that was adjustable. This cartidge was designed for easy set-up. Plug in the cartidge, and replace the set screw. You do have the set screw, correct? It has a knurled head and goes into the side of the tonearm, by the cartridge with the hole.You must use one because the weight will definitely will be off without it. If you have any further questions, please contact me through my website. Thank you.

    Hello Lance, My apologies. Apparently there is some conflicting information on your turntable. I pulled the manual. Yes, it is supplied with a P mount cartridge, however, Dennon does offer a headshell to allow you to use any cartridge. When using an aftermarket cartridge, simply dial the tracking force dial back to zero, and turn the balance counterweight at the back of the forearm to allow the forearm to float in the middle of it's vertical motion. Then go back to the Tracking Force/Antiskating knob, and dial in the tracking force suggested by the cartridge manufacture. The anti skating is automatically set. Sorry for the confusion.

SOURCE: i just received a denon

Yes you will need to purchase a stereo that has a phono input. If not you will have to buy an amplifier for the record player. Some newer Yamahas have a phono input. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: turntable speed erratic

It doesnt sound like it's related to an Auto function ( auto lift tonearm end of LP lift)
so...The motor is the only issue.
It could be the motor drive circuit or the motor.
It's fixable by a qualified tech.
I'm not sure what it's worth to you though.

Denon dp-26F when i tried to play a record the arm just skated all the way across the record. is there a way to adjust the arm so it plays correctly?

The short answer is that you need a new stylus as the one you have is either broken or worn away so that it won't stay in the groove. It could also be out of place. Rubbing your finger on the stylus you should be able to feel it digging in. If you can't it's gone!

Adjust pitch

Register (free) at Vinyl Engine and download the service manual. The adjustment you need to do seems fairly simple. You will need a turntable strobe disk to get the the speed right, unless you have perfect pitch.

Denon DP-297 Turntable Tone Arm Skating

There should be a weight on the end of the arm, this needs to be adjusted. Some have numbers on them, increase the number shown. To get it to work right you will have to do it by trial and error. Increasing the weight in small steps, then playing a record. The trick being so it stays in the groove, but not too much so it rumbles on the sound. You will need to repeat the process several times till it sounds right and stays in the groove.

I have a denon DP-7F direct table (1989)ust wondering about the point of the arm the head of the cartridge housing is very close to the record any way to get that adjusted higher?

If the tonearm balance and tracking force for your cartridge are adjusted correctly, ignore it.

Register and download the manual for free at

Eeeww, page 8 says the counterweight snaps on and the tracking force is factory set. Any self-repecting turntable should have precise manual balance and tracking adjustments. Or your counterweight is not on? Either way, I'd look seriously at getting the stylus checked for excessive wear if it's tracking too heavily. The manual says 500 hours of normal use. You'll be carving up your recordings.

Maybe post the question to the guys at Vinylengine

Turntable speed erratic

It is likely that grease has hardened and as the gears rotate that grease is interfering with normal operation. Take the unit apart and have a look at the drive mechanism, if there is something in the gears you should be able to see it.
