SOURCE: tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix

I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

How do you adjust the tone arm on a Denon DP-47F turntable? Thanks Cosmicharlie


Basically, like almost any other turntable.

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Set the Tracking and Anti-skating controls to 0.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
Dial in the prescribed tracking force and anti-skating. Play records.

I have an older QL-45 turntable that needs tone arm adjustment- I don`t know how to set the weight so it doesn`t lower down to album so hard or heavily


I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

Make a note of the tracking force setting.


Make sure the turntable is level.

Counterweight on my technics 1200 wont catch to screw on. Threads inside the weight look fine but there seems to be a small "bump" on the under back side of the tone arm. This "bump" doesnt stick out as...


It doesn't screw on, it pushes on....

"With the tonearm locked in place, put the anti‐skate
dial on "0" and push the counterweight onto the rear of
the tonearm. Make sure that the numbers face to the
front of the turntable. Turn the weight until you feel it
"click" into place.

Unlock the tonearm from the rest, and move it
toward the middle, about one inch from the edge of the
platter. Hold the arm off the surface with your right
hand on the finger lift. Begin turning the counterweight
one way or the other, until the arm seems to just
"float".

As seen in the picture, the arm, when properly
floating, will not face up nor down.. it will stay
with the platter. It may take a few tries to get
correct. Lock the tonearm back on it's rest.

Holding the rear, silver, section of the counterweight
with one hand, use your other hand to turn JUST the
number ring. It doesn't matter which direction you turn
it, but you will want "0" to face up when you are done.

Using just one hand, turn the entire counterweight
(the silver part) COUNTERCLOCKWISE until the
recommended tracking force is achieved. New
cartridges will tell what the ideal number is. As a rule of
thumb, however, most "hi‐fi" cartridges track between
1 and 2 grams, while most DJ cartridges track between
3 and 5 grams.

Set the anti‐skate dial to coincide with the tracking
force... in other words, if the tracking force is 2 grams,
set the anti‐skate dial to "2". The exception is for DJ's
who scratch and back‐cue. Your anti‐skate must be left
on "0". "

Here's a procedure for setting the tonearm...

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable and place it on a perfectly level surface.

Set the Tracking Force and AntiSkating to 0.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter Clockwise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
If you don't have a Stylus Tracking Force Gauge. Dial in the prescribed tracking force and a corresponding anti-skate reading. Play records.

Missing Parts


You need a headshell unit (which is needle etc for the front of arm)
also the felt pad.. also known as a slipmat, you can pick up at dj supplies shops or on ebay..
I need a counterweight myself as my ION turntable also had missing parts when I got it as a gift.
I found a headshell on ebay which is perfect...Turntable Cartridge and Headshell Black DJ DISCO USB on eBay (end time 08-Sep-09 00:11:01 BST)
I havent yet found a counterweight..I hope I will!
Hope this helps in some way..

Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.


A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.
