If your needle just started to skip across the LP, then that means your stylus is damaged/worn and needs to be replaced. It's very hard to see the diamond tip on the stylus, and it might not even be there at all. So checking it might not yield any results. This is what happens when the needle is worn. It will skip across the record.

The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.

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).

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.

I had the same problem with the arm constantly starting and stopping, and the suggestion above works. Despite, I was a little confused on how to do it. Here's what I did in detail:
- Remove the turntable mat.
- Unhook the belt and remove the turntable platter.
- Once the platter's removed, you should see two plastic white gears in the middle. Rotate the center gear clockwise until its tab hits the larger gear. The center gear should move freely and without resistance until you hit that gear.
- Put the platter back, making sure to re-hook the belt around the spindle.
- Put the mat back.
After that, you should be set!
