Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a technic sl 1200 mk2 , my anti skate is thrown off as well is my counter weight. i put a blank vinyl album on and i adjusted my toneing arm and antiskate and counter weight. then i played an album it plays a few seconds then it skips a tade.my turn tables are 20 years old. i put the toneing arm height on (2.5) and the same on my counter weight to (2.5) the same on my antiskate . but it just skips back. i have orderfons needles. cuz at first they played well now it's a pain to ajust my toneing arm counter weight and antiskate . if u can give me some few tips i will appreciate it..
I gather you don't know how to adjust the tonearm. First put the stylus pressure, and antiskating to zero. Balance the tonearm for a free floating position. Ortofon cartridges will list the stylus pressure, generally 1.5 grams. Dial in the correct pressure, and set the antiskating to the same as the stylus pressure. If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your Technics, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

Hi the pennies will mess up the stylus. There should be an anti skate setting at the back of the turn table, a round adjustable bit with numbers, increase the anti skate and then use the balance weigth (weight right at the back of the arm that turns to get the weight right. Set the anti skate with the tone arm light, then increase the weight a bit. Hope that helps
