There is no oil to ever be added to any tonearm. If you're talking about the fluid used to raise or lower the tonearm, that is known as damping fluid, which takes experience to apply correctly, even if you can find the fluid at all. It's obviously not used often anymore, and it's a very specific type and weight. If you need further assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your unit, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Rock-ola 448 jukebox skipping how to repair


The stylus might be worn or of the wrong type. A simple tone arm needs a round stylus and if an elliptical type (intended for a long S-shaped tone arm) has been fitted by mistake it could skip.

If nothing is wrong there, the remaining conclusion is either the mechanism is maladjusted or the tonearm bearing has a tight spot. In that case the tone arm should be removed and the shaft examined under strong magnification and any irregularities carefully removed, eased, blended in using a very fine abrasive (12,000 - 20,000 grit) and then ensuring the shaft and bearing is thoroughly clean apply a little very light machine oil and reassemble and readjust the playing weight...

Wurlitzer jukebox 1015 78rpm records needle does not start at the begining sometimes starts 1/2" in. How do I adjust tone arm


If you study the screws around the cradle that the tone arm sits in you will see that it is adjustable. This determines where the tone arm is when the record comes up. If the machine was always wrong like this it may have been set for 45rpm records. You need to adjust the whole tone arm post with the screw that goes up into the base of the post..

I just purchased a Sherwood RD 6513 reciever, I'm trying to connect a hd cable box (motorola dch 3200), dvd player (sony dvp ns710h) and a rca hd tv (l32hd41). I connected hdmi cords from both components...


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.

for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.

if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.

I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..

Have an older sherwood turntable model st-905 linear direct drive. when i press the button the tonearm humms but will not move


I had a similar problem and found that manually moving the arm back and forth along the tube several times "loosened up the mechanics. They get stiff after sitting a long time. B e sure to protect the needle!

Cueing Problems on Technics SL-1300MK2


Usually the damping fluid is to let the tone arm lower slowly, lifting is usually a mechanical link. Read THIS.

Hope that helps...

Aiwa LX770 Turntable won't start


It's a bit after Jim's post, however I had what appears to have been the same problem with my LX770 after it had been stored in the loft for quite a few years. I found the problem to be caused by the tone arm mechanisms stalling - The band that was associated with lifting the arm had turned to a black gunge and was not allowing the motor to rotate, also the motor associated with moving the arm backwards and forwards was struggling to turn. I cleaned the tone lifting pulleys and replaced with a small elastic band (for a temporary fix). This was a little fiddly as you have to take off a spring and a couple of gears to get the new band in place. I cleaned the runners and cleaned off the grease on the worm gears associated with the arm tracking (as I suspected it may be more viscus than originally installed), lightly oiled the tone arm tracking gears. It still seamed to take an amount of helping the tracking arm gears until they were able to move freely. With the tone arm mechanisms working properly the whole unit now seams to be working.
Top tips if you attempt this: WARNING - If the unit is plugged in, the transformer and high voltage wires are live regardless of whether the on button is on or off on the front of the record deck. PLEASE do not take any of my comments as recommendation you should ever do anything with the unit plugged in! Remove the little stylus carrier before you start taking the player to pieces - saves damaging it! Remove the record mat and aluminium platter before turning the unit upside down. Manually push the tone arm to about 0.5cm from its furthest travel - so you can remove the tone arm mechanism plate. May be a little stiff as the wires have to slide of the pulleys for the tone arm to be pushed. To access the tone arm mechanisms, remove the main bottom plate (and greasy spring), then undo the screws which hold on the rear undertray. With the decks buttons toward you, you should then be able to lift the rear tray slightly and tilt the tray towards you to expose the tone arm mechanisms. You shouldn't need to remove the circuit board with the control buttons on the front of the unit.
After getting it going, I found that I needed a Phono preamp to get the signal strength necessary to use the deck for transferring vinyl to my PC.
Good luck
