If the stylus (not needle) is good then you might have got an incorrect earth wire connection on the cartridge or a bad connection to it. Also check the plugs and wiring between it and the amp. The earth connection might be broken there.

SOURCE: ** sound

First and foremost, make sure you plug into directly to the PHONO input of your receiver. If your unit does not have a PHONO input, then you wont be able to hear much coming from the unit. The PHONO input is a pre-amplified input, and this turntable requires an amplified input in order to transmit it's signal correctly. Just using an AUX or LINE IN will not have enough power to increase the signal of the turntable. You have the option of purchasing a PHONO PRE-AMPLIFIER (range in price from US$15-30), or purchasing a new receiver with a PHONO INPUT!

If you have it connected to your phono input, and still no sound, your turntable may have either faulty RCA cables (red/white cables), or a bad tonearm - in either case will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

It's called a stylus. What red or white caps are we talking about? Some phono cartridges come with stylus guards that flip up out of the way for play or down to protect the stylus from damage while in storage or during tonearm balancing. The stylus needs to touch the record groove directly.

THE TONE ARM ON MY ROCKOLA 459 SLIDES OVER THE RECORD WITHOUT PLAYING.


Hi
It sounds as if the tone arm has become unbalanced. Make sure the turntable is on a firm flat horizontal surface and at the opposite end of the arm from the needle there will be a weight and a means of altering the position of weight on the tone arm. This weight keeps the needle on the record but only lightly when positioned correctly. If positioned too far from the pivot post the needle will as you have experience skip virtually straight across the record. You need to adjust the weight so that the needle just sits in the groove and plays without being too heavy. It is best to use a record you are not too worried about for this testing as the test record can sometimes get scratched.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

The arm with the needle slides across the LP record - doesn't pick up sound


This is often a problem when you are using a 78 needle on a 45 or 33 record. Some needles can be flipped, so check to see if yours is able to flip between the 78 and 33 setting. If not, you may simply need a new one.

I have a sony PS-LX33 turntable. When I try to play the record, the needle gets stuck in one position and will not move across the record. I have fitted a new stylus but still does not work. Can you help...


First check that you can move the arm right across the turntable platter. Do this without a record to avoid scratching it. If you can take it to the middle at the same height as a record then no mechanical fault is present.
That being OK it perhaps means that too much weight is being applied to the stylus. You can adjust it with the weight at the end of the arm. It should have numbers on, try it on 1 or 2 to start with - playing a record. The idea being to get the pressure just right without making it jump out of the groove or too heavy giving a rumble sound. It's a question of trial and error.

2 things, make sure the back arm weight is adjusted correctly,, allowing enough pressure to be placed on the record, if that doesn't help, you have a chip in the needle thats not visible to the naked eye,

While playing A cd the sound intermittenly stops like A skip and sound comes back but player is never moved


If the CD is the problem it could be scratched or dirty, clean the CD with a CD Cleaner if need be. If the CD mechanism is the problem the sled assembly may not be moving smoothly or is hindered ( the sled mech moves the laser across the CD like a needle arm move the needle across a record), the laser lens may be dirty also. Use a CD lens cleaner to clean the lens if you can not manually clean it with some lens cleaner and a swab. If the sled mechnism is the problem the unit may need to be taken in for service.
