Isn't there a little knob with a +/- setting that allows you to move the indexing in or out from the edge of the groove? Play with that and see if you can't get it dialed in a little better...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

When I play a record, and the gripper arm is in front the tone arm lands on the wheel and does not land on the 45


Some decks have a selector switch for 7inch and 12inch records. You need to find it and select the 7 setting. However you will need to switch it back to 12 if you want to play an LP.

Adjust tone arm


Usually there is a hole towards the back of where the tonearm is mounted that adjusts the set down area. Be aware that some have two holes one for set down and one for pick up of tonearm. These can be adjusted with a flat blade screwdriver. Check and see with a good flashlight. Adjust slowly and check to make sure you are turning it in the correct direction.

Turn table doesn't start when tone arm is lifted


Did it used to start when you lifted the tonearm?

Many turntables start when the arm is moved over the record.

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.

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.

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249


Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com

I have an old Califone 1400 all records skip new needle


There's not enough pressure to keep the stylus down in the grooves. Increase the weight (on the end of the arm).

Playing to the end of the record


I LOVED the 40bs, and if you look at the size selector, which is located at an angle to the right side at the front along with the manual or auto setting in the front. There are 4 settings, 78-10, 45-7, 33-12, and 33-7 for the speeds and sizes of the recordings.

Tone arm retracts before recording is complete (CR-245)


actual old units (not sure about modern nostalgics) sometimes had a lever that said 7 or 12 inches for 45's or 33's this would tell the mechanism when to set down the arm. If your unit does not have something like this then it sounds like an internal failure that would require it being opened by a tech or sent in for warranty repair.
