    The "C2" is the cartridge carrier insert which slides into the headshell of your 40B. The Stylus you're looking for is another story... Below, a photo of the cartridge which holds the stylus (the small block in which you fit the stylus).

What needle do I need for Garrard turntable model 3250? My needle is missing because of my son discarding it.

If you look at the cartridge it fits into. Then you will see a model type and number. Enter that into Google and the stylus will also turn up.

How to change needle on record player

The "needle" should be connected to the record player in a simple fashion, just inserted into a slot. First see if you can remove the existing "cartridge" (the entire part that includesd the needle) and then look online for a replacement that looks the same, or search according to the turntable model number. There are many different types of cartridges, so you need to know what to buy. Here is a link to show man of the possibilities:

Search google with the model number of your turntable, and then the word "cartridge"

I recently received a Viking Solid State Record Player. and I need to buy a needle/cartiridge for it but I dont know WHERE to buy it or WHICH NEEDLE to buy! This is the Model: N 2 SFG 249

You always go on the installed cartridge for any deck when finding the correct stylus (not called needles now). It should have a model number on it, put that into Google and you should find the stylus. You can always fit a new cartridge and stylus. It's just a question of which one will fit into the headshell. That way you can get better sound.

Need a new turntable needle

Best source for finding these are online.
eBay is perhaps the most price competitive however you really need to know they exact needle for your machine.

If you search, you can find comparison charts to match up your old needle. These are usually the best. If you don't have the old needle, try to figure out what type of cartridge your machine has, then find a needle based on that info.

Worst case you may have to buy a new cartridge and needle.
Be sure to save the make & model numbers!

I can personally vouge for these guys:
they do a great job of helping people find what they need.

I bought an old Garrard turntable. But when I put a record on you can't hear it playing through the speakers. I thought it was the needle but I replaced it and still no sound through speaker. I know...

Firstly check all the connections to the cartridge where the stylus fits. If they are OK. Remove them and with the amp on touch each wire -one at a time- with your finger. If the system is OK you should hear on two wires a buzz - one for each channel. If you do replace the cartridge. If you don't, then there's either a bad connection, or a faulty pre-amp inside the stereo.

The needle is broken off can it be fixed for less then the turntable cost?

Yes it can. On the head of the arm if you look carefully where the needle (to give it's correct name -stylus) is. What it fits into is a cartridge. If you can see letters or numbers on it that will be the type. If you put that into Google it should find it. You should find if it is possible to buy the stylus with or without the cartridge. Though it's often cheaper to buy both. The cartridge will either be screwed onto the head or just clipped on someway. You will find four wires attached to the cartridge. These will have to be removed if you have to replace the cartridge. Make a note of how each wire attaches to the cartridge. As long as you can get a cartridge to fit the headshell you can use any magnetic cartridge for the job. All you would need to do with a different cartridge is adjust the weight to apply the correct pressure to the stylus.
If the cartridge doesn't have any number etc on it, put the make/model number of the turntable into Google adding cartridge/stylus.

Need to change ink cartridge

First you must identify which model Epson printer you have by going here.

You can either select your printer from the list, or enter the model number.

Once you have found your printer, it will tell you the model ink cartridges it requires, and even where to buy them.

We will need to know the model number of the Epson printer to be able to assist with the actual process of installation, as it can vary between printers.
