The short answer is that you need a new stylus as the one you have is either broken or worn away so that it won't stay in the groove. It could also be out of place. Rubbing your finger on the stylus you should be able to feel it digging in. If you can't it's gone!

If you start rubbing your finger across the stylus, if it wasn't missing it probably will be now. Try looking at it with a magnifying glass or microscope.
Check the tracking and anti-skating forces. If they are out of whack the tone arm can do all kinds of things . . . and make sure you are using the correct setting ( RTFB or try a search engine )

My Denon DP-26F tonearm does not return "all" the way when finished playing a record.


Tonearm can be adjusted to travel back to its support. At the base of the tonearm is a small rubber stopper. Remove the stopper and insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot beneath. Turn to the left and then test arm for repositioning correct. Adjust until its correct. John

MAKE MY TONEARM STOP SKATING


It's possible your weight adjustment has been mis-adjusted since you last used your turntable. On the tonearm, there should be a weight adjustment wheel. Turn this all the way towards the needle (IN). Now, adjust it backwards until there is no resistance in the tone arm - this is your zero point, reset the wheel on the weight adjustment knob to read 0. Now, adjust it forward to 3 grams of downward pressure. This is usually the minimum amount of force needed on a record. If it still skates at this setting, adjust it with gradual amounts of greater force until the skating stops.

In my DENON DP-300F tone arm don't come back after playing record. It just stays in the end of record? How can i fix it?


A lot of decks don't actually do that anyway. But if it previously did this then it's probably a mechanical problem. Removing the bottom of the turntable might show up the cause of the problem.

Denon DP-297 Turntable Tone Arm Skating


There should be a weight on the end of the arm, this needs to be adjusted. Some have numbers on them, increase the number shown. To get it to work right you will have to do it by trial and error. Increasing the weight in small steps, then playing a record. The trick being so it stays in the groove, but not too much so it rumbles on the sound. You will need to repeat the process several times till it sounds right and stays in the groove.

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.

All the arm does whenever I try to play a record is move across the record. This even happens with a brand new needle. I'm ready to get a new turntable.


there is a counter balance on the side of the arm called an anti skating weight.it prevents the grooves on the record from pushing the stylus inward,wearing out one side.when the anti skate weight system has a fault,it drags the arm toward the center of the record faster than needed.there is also a weight on the back of the arm.that is the balance.when set to zero,the arm should balance.then the weight is turned to 1 gram or so.if there is not enough force downward,the anti skate mechanism will drag the arm inward.

This is a question for my daughter who lives in Japan. She has a Crosley turntable she bought from Urban Outfitters. The stylus arm has suddenly started skating over the record, ie won't play anything. ...


I have no experience of Crosley turntables, however, stylus arm skating across the record surface on any turntable is normally due to the counter balance weight being incorrectly adjusted. In order to track across a record properly, the stylus must press down on to the record very lightly. If there is too little pressure, skating is what tends to happen. Too much pressure can cause distortion of the sound and excessive wear of the record.

At the pivoting end of the stylus arm, there should be a counter balence weight. This is normally adjustable (but not always - depends on quality and features of the particular turntable), and is used to set the pressure the stylus applies to the record surface, measured in grammes. The manual that came with it should tell you how to adjust it, but for most turntables stylus pressure is between 1 to 3 grammes.

If you dont have the manual, have a good look at the pivoting end of the stylus arm to see if soemthing is obviously wrong, or if not whether there is something with numbers on it that can be turned or slid. This is likley to be the counter weight. Try adjusting it.
Within reason, the stylus weight isnt critical so a "trial and error" approach wont do any harm.

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.
