Question about Audio Technica AT-LP2D Turntable

1 Answer

No matter what I do, I can't eliminate the occasional skip...

No matter how careful, I can't eliminate skipping and on one album, the needle gets stuck in a groove and does not proceed.  Except for this annoying problem, I like what I have.  The Albums have not been played for twenty years and the storage has been good and the quality is good.

Try cleaning that lp with an anti static felt record brush, and look for either groove glide or d4 cleaner....Sounds odd, but ive ad records kept in tip top, climate controlled, and funk still gets in the groove.

My pfaff hobbymatic 875 is skipping thread on the bobbin side


Be sure to use a brand new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it will frequently skip stitches. Also, if you are using the incorrect needle for the fabric & thread you are using, it will skip stitches, ie a ball point needle on woven fabric.

Skipping stitches on bobbin thread Juki DDL555-5. any suggestions?


sounds like u have the wrong needle or machine is out of time. if its a needle feed machine u might have the wrong bobbin case. try lowering the needle slightly. machine is easy to time. theres a mark on the needle bar which u align with the bottom of the bar guide then loosen the hook (3 screws) and move hook till it just starts to meet the needle. careful of side to side movment. bobbin case has to remain in the finger.

We changed to a smaller needle 70/10 from 80/12 and machine won't sew


Go back to the larger needle size. Bet you're seeing skipped stitches or crazy tension issues. Thicker stacks of fabrics need thicker needles. See also: http://www.gwsms.com/didyouknow.htm

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

Skipped stitches means a bent or dull needle or improper needle for the fabric being sewn. Try a new needle of the correct type for the material being sewn. If this doesnt correct it, then it will be a timing or needle to hook problem and should go to a qualifed dealer for repair.

Tonearm skips imediately to center of album


Your stylus is damaged or worn. Or some one may have spun the balancing weight at the rear of the tonearm. Reset the weight so that it will drop when two postage stamps are lain upon the stylus end of the arm.

Right needle skipping stitches Janome 4623LE


if you adjust that setting, check that the needle goes into the needle plate the exact same distance front to back on both the right and left side. Also, be careful not to change the height when changing the twist.

Machine is skipping stitches


First be sure you have a new needle in. A dull needle will cause this.
Also a burr from the needle having hit in the slot of the needle plate can catch the thread occasionally as well as a burr on the hook behind the bobbincase. With some very fine crocus paper or what is called a green stick these burrs need to be polished off. Or have them replaced. Check everywhere the thread touches. Otherwise it may be the timing is slightly off.
