I've just set up my Technics SL D212 turntable after moving house. It keeps skidding across records. I've tried the usual adjustments and leveled the turntable. Any clues?


Please make 100% certain the needle is still in place... To test this *GENTLY* rub your fingertip over it and you should hear noise from the speakers when you do. If there is NO noise then there is likely no needle.
Did you put the protective device on the needle/arm for the move? Is it still on there?
Sorry Mate, that the only thing I've got to help....

Needle skipping & not pushing down


There should be an "anti-skate" adjustment to control the arm moving across the record. It is possible that lubrication has stiffened up as well. This unit may need a general overhaul/cleaning.

Skipping


That is correct, your tonearm needs to be replaced.

By adjusting that top screw on the tonearm, you only made the problem worse. It's very hard to realign that screw, as those are machine calibrated, and once tampered with, almost impossible to get back to exact factory settings. We recommend replacement of the entire Technics tonearm.

Tone arm skipping/not moving on especially at end of record


The issue is with your tonearm, and not your tracking. You probably have slight damage to the tonearm bearings, which will cause this. There are 2 options... you can try to adjust the pivoting screw at the top of the tonearm ... However, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS, because once you mess with this screw, it's EXTREMELY difficult to get it back to the correct setting, as this screw is machine calibrated at the factory. So, we only recommend this when you have no other choice, or it's an emergency (the middle of a set).

You can view a video on how to do this, by going here - http://djprolab.com

Eventually, your going to have to have your Technics Tonearm replaced. This should be done by a professional, as it is not an easy replacement.
