Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Tonearm moves immediately to end (center) of album, instead of dropping at start and playing. It started moving part way in first (skipping the first track or so), but now it skips the whole thing.
Your needle (stylus) is either worn out or not seated properly. If you continue to try using it without the problem being corrected, it will ruin your records. You can check it to see if it's worn out by dragging your finger over it, lightly, from back to front only. It should feel like a small pin. It should also be seated into the groove on the tonearm. If this doesn't correct the problem, replace it.

Your stylus is damaged or worn. Or some one may have spun the balancing weight at the rear of the tonearm. Reset the weight so that it will drop when two postage stamps are lain upon the stylus end of the arm.

Make a note of the tracking force setting.
Make sure the turntable is level.
Unplug the power to the turntable.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.
