Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable
I just bought a second-hand Technics SL-BD22 semi-automatic turntable. It plays fine, sound quality is great, but I'm having a *really* annoying problem....
The auto-return happens way too soon. I haven't actually managed to lsiten to an entire song yet, as it always cuts out about 3/4 through... Maybe this has something to do with the fact that I like listening to drum'n'bass, which usually has long 6-7 minute songs, maybe the turntable is set to return after 5 because most songs aren't that long, but then, that wouldn't make sense if I was listening to a full album; and a 7" would cut out only halfway through...
Now, I might have only just gotten a turntable, but I'm not *that* stupid - I *did* read the instruction manual, and there's a little screw for adjusting the auto-return. One way makes it cut out even sooner, the other way makes it cut out later. I turned it all the way both sides (just to see) and in both cases it still cuts out way too soon...
this is extremely annoying, as I have only just gotten my turntable and was hoping to listen to all my records, but they all cut out half way... is there any way to manually adjust the auto-return so it cuts out later; or even better - to disable it, making it a sort-of manual turntable ?
Thanks a lot, I really appreciate all and any help I can get here :)
P.S. if nothing else works, I doubt very luch it's a good idea, but how about bending the tonearm ? I don't like that idea at all, and I don't want to break anything but I'm wondering if it's the only way...
Great!! You're Happy, I'm Happy.
