SOURCE: Tone arm skipping/not moving on especially at end of record

The issue is with your tonearm, and not your tracking. You probably have slight damage to the tonearm bearings, which will cause this. There are 2 options... you can try to adjust the pivoting screw at the top of the tonearm ... However, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS, because once you mess with this screw, it's EXTREMELY difficult to get it back to the correct setting, as this screw is machine calibrated at the factory. So, we only recommend this when you have no other choice, or it's an emergency (the middle of a set).

You can view a video on how to do this, by going here - http://djprolab.com

Eventually, your going to have to have your Technics Tonearm replaced. This should be done by a professional, as it is not an easy replacement.

SOURCE: BSR turntable arm slides across record

There can be a number of reasons for this.
Have you checked that the stylus tip has not broken off? this is a common cause and will require a new stylus.

SOURCE: Needle replacement...missing part?

To replace the stylus (N-6516 from your Sony dealer)

1.Turn off the amplifier
2. Protect the stylus with the stylus cover (it flips down 90 degrees)
3. Grasp the stylus holder (exposed when cover was flipped down) and pull it away from the cartridge body
4. Insert the stylus by pushing it in to the cartridge receptacle. Flip the stylus protector up.

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

I have a rowe ami R-83 Disco 200. It was working fine until the record got hung up on the needle cartege. When I tried to free it up the arm bounced up but seemed fine. Put the needle down on the record...


I know little about Jukeboxes but I do know how delicate the cartridge is and the connecting wires. Considering the sound stopped after the arm bounced it would be a very good idea to check the cartridge and the connecting wires before you do anything else.

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..

Hello, so for some reason the needle is sliding down the vinyl towards the center every time we go to play it. it just slides across! makes no sense, the needle is not broken and we have been trying to...


needles never seem to look broken But a tiny chip on them will make the player do exactly what your describing, as far as the counter weights,, spin the player by hand , click the handle to make the arm begin to position itself at the beginning of the record, Now, before it drops, slow down the hand spinning, and set the weight so that when the arm is supposed to drop it doesn't,, in other words balance it to be level, No up or down motion, without a weight scale to do this by the book, try this , Its always worked for me, tape 2 pennies to the weight at the rear of the arm, and one penny to the head of the arm, again, adjust it to be level,, then remove all the pennies,, the arm will have about the correct weight they require for the needle to be correct,, if it still slides, you have a bad needle

Record tracking problem


There is a switch, or lever to a switch, that detects the end of the arm travel. For some reason, it is being tripped early. Try to open it up, and see what you can see. It doesn't sound like a broken part, but a dislodged part, maybe. That's all I remember, only had this problem once, years ago.

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).

Technics sl 1200 MK2 WEAK SOUND


Regarding the poor sound quality (and possibly the skipping):
check the needle condition, see if exchanging it with a needle (or the entire pickup head) from a working turntable does any good.

Check the pickup connection pins (contacts on the pickup head and on the end of the wires coming through the arm from the unit), see if there is any dirt or oxydation and clean the contacts if necessary, also check for any damage to the wires.

As for the skipping - a heavily worn needle may affect the sound quality and cause skipping as well - if cahnging the needle (or the pickup head) doesn't make a change, try to realign the weight on the tone arm so that the pickup head will become a bit heavier, this could help somewhat (before you actually try to realign the weight, try to put a small coin or a small weight of some kind on the pickup head while it is playing a record, if the skipping goes away, you need to realign the tone arm weight).

This could also be a problem with the tone arm lifting mechanism (may be obstructed by something or damaged so it won't let the tone arm sit properly onto the record and "grab" the groove).

I just mentioned a few things you might want to check, but don't take anything for granted, the problem may as well be elsewhere in the unit.

I have bought an old B&O beogram rx2 turntable and am having difficulty playing any records. When I press play the needle will sit on the edge of the record but when it moves in to the grooves it seems...


If you cannot see a small tip on the needle then yes it is worn out,but you can check by rubbing your finger over the tip when the system is on,if you hear sound through the speakers then it should play the album,make sure that the weight at the back of the arm is set to keep the needle in the groove as this may be set to far back,move it forward to keep weight on the needle.

hope this helps.
