SOURCE: need to adjust stylus pressure

Not sure exactly with this one looked at a googled picture. The counter balance weight needs to come forward toward the stylus to increase weight and move back to decrease. there looks to be a thumb screw on the right of the counter weight turn anti clockwise slightly one of three things will happen either the weight will start to move down the arm, the screw will undo the weight will come loose and can be moved forward or back on the arm or not very much at all will happen at all.
Best to mark the position of the weight first so you can return it to its original position after you over adjust and cut your own grooves in you cherished vinyl only a small adjustment is required. failing that put a small piece of blu-tack on the top of the cartridge only joking.

When I lower the needle it slides to the centre


If this is an inexpensive turntable, your stylus is probably broken. You should be able to get a replacement stylus through any electronic parts store or from the manufacturer.
If this is an expensive, audiophile unit, it may need adjustments and/or a stylus replacement.

I need to balance my tonearm for sony ps242. I have no instruction manual.


Generally on the end of most arms is a weight. These often have numbers. These weights turn or adjust, to one of the numbers. Ideally you should set it to the specifications of the cartridge fitted. If you are not certain set it around 2 or 3, then try it out with a record. The stylus should sit nicely on the record with no rumbling noise. This would indicate it being set to high. If too low the stylus will slide on the record and jump out of the groove.

My stylus arm exerts 4 grams weight


Four grams seems a little much. I find it hard to believe Sony relied solely on an inaccessible spring for stylus pressure adjustment. Back in the day, we used to tape a coin on top of the back end of the tone arm to adjust pressure so it may be necessary to improvise

My need on my turntable jumps around on my records


If it keeps sliding in one direction, it probably needs an anti-skating adjustment or to be put on a level surface. If it jumps all over, the stylus weight is probably too light or the surface it's on isn't stable enough.

This is a question for my daughter who lives in Japan. She has a Crosley turntable she bought from Urban Outfitters. The stylus arm has suddenly started skating over the record, ie won't play anything. ...


I have no experience of Crosley turntables, however, stylus arm skating across the record surface on any turntable is normally due to the counter balance weight being incorrectly adjusted. In order to track across a record properly, the stylus must press down on to the record very lightly. If there is too little pressure, skating is what tends to happen. Too much pressure can cause distortion of the sound and excessive wear of the record.

At the pivoting end of the stylus arm, there should be a counter balence weight. This is normally adjustable (but not always - depends on quality and features of the particular turntable), and is used to set the pressure the stylus applies to the record surface, measured in grammes. The manual that came with it should tell you how to adjust it, but for most turntables stylus pressure is between 1 to 3 grammes.

If you dont have the manual, have a good look at the pivoting end of the stylus arm to see if soemthing is obviously wrong, or if not whether there is something with numbers on it that can be turned or slid. This is likley to be the counter weight. Try adjusting it.
Within reason, the stylus weight isnt critical so a "trial and error" approach wont do any harm.

Techniques SL-D1 Turntable anti skid...


Actually, this sounds like the needle is damaged. Make sure there is a tip on there. Just because it's new, does not mean it is not damaged. Sometimes end-users improperly handle the stylus/needle when installing.

If you are 100% certain that the stylus is ok, then the anti-skate needs to be set correctly. Generally, leaving it on 0 (zero) is ok to start. Then try and balance your tonearm according to THESE INSTRUCTIONS. These instructions apply to most turntables. The fundamentals are the same for all turntables in that you need to balance (float) your tonearm for optimal use.

Hope this helps some.

Stylus will not catch


'Skating' is usually due to very low stylus pressure, which can be adjusted using a counterweight.

Is this the picture of the turntable ?
http://www.vintagetechnics.stereomanuals.com/turntables/sldd33.htm
Isn't that a counterweight at the back-end of the arm ? Can't it be rotated ?

If the counter weight is fixed, check the pickup mounting. May be it needs to be adjusted a bit forward (to increasing the stylus pressure).
