How to change needle on record player


The "needle" should be connected to the record player in a simple fashion, just inserted into a slot. First see if you can remove the existing "cartridge" (the entire part that includesd the needle) and then look online for a replacement that looks the same, or search according to the turntable model number. There are many different types of cartridges, so you need to know what to buy. Here is a link to show man of the possibilities: https://www.google.com/search?q=turntable+cartridges&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=aoHfVPXhN8PZoATI3YIY&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1920&bih=952

Search google with the model number of your turntable, and then the word "cartridge"

I have Pioneer pl202az record player.. need help finding to replace the broken needle..


It is seldom worth just replacing a needle. It's not much more expensive to replace the whole cartridge. Easily available online - search by make and model number on Amazon

The needle is broken off can it be fixed for less then the turntable cost?


Yes it can. On the head of the arm if you look carefully where the needle (to give it's correct name -stylus) is. What it fits into is a cartridge. If you can see letters or numbers on it that will be the type. If you put that into Google it should find it. You should find if it is possible to buy the stylus with or without the cartridge. Though it's often cheaper to buy both. The cartridge will either be screwed onto the head or just clipped on someway. You will find four wires attached to the cartridge. These will have to be removed if you have to replace the cartridge. Make a note of how each wire attaches to the cartridge. As long as you can get a cartridge to fit the headshell you can use any magnetic cartridge for the job. All you would need to do with a different cartridge is adjust the weight to apply the correct pressure to the stylus.
If the cartridge doesn't have any number etc on it, put the make/model number of the turntable into Google adding cartridge/stylus.

I can't find a needle/cartridge for my turntable, it's a Numark TT-1910


if you have the headshell left with the 4 little wires hanging out then you will need a complete cartridge.

if you have the cartridge part then it's still good and you only require a new needle. Type your cartridge number into the search window at the above website.

Broken needle on thorens TD 158 turn table.


Needle is a term used with 'record players' from the 60's. A turntable has a Phono Cartridge with a stylus. Depending on the brand / model of said cartridge the stylus may be replaceable. The cartridge certainly is. The tonearm is a delicate precision mechanism that will last lifetime if handled properly.

If you don't understand any of this I discourage you from taking any further actions without a knowledgeable mentor / technician looking over your ahoulder.

Need a needle for a magnavox AS305M turntable, can not seem to track one down


Unfortunately, the needle spec is tied to the catridge not the model of the turntable. Are there any numbers on the cartridge itself? Do you have a needle that is broken or is it missing completely? If you can post a picture of the needle, I should be able to match it. Post any numbers you find as well.

Thanks,
Dan

Magnavox Stylus


We need to know the model number of the CARTRIDGE itself. Doesn't matter what turntable you have. All that matters is what cartridge is mounted on the turntable, so that we can match the correct stylus. The stylus/needle connects to the Cartridge:

As the diagram shows, the stylus mounts to the cartridge, which then mounts to the headshell. This headshell is then connected to the tonearm (tube).

So, if you look at the cartridge you should be able to see the model number. If not, there is no way to match up the stylus, as ther are literally THOUSANDS of styli on the market. I would suggest purchasing a NEW cartridge/stylus combination. The following should fit your model:
