Technics SL-1350 Direct Drive Turntable

Hello...the needle skips on the last track of both sides of any record I play. Any suggestions as to how I can make the needle play all the way through my albums? Thanks. Mike

    Thanks John. No doubt the arm appears to be making contact with the cuing lift as the arm rides through the last track and nearer the center of the record, although when it begins to skip seems inconsistent from record to record. There is a screw next to the cuing lift that is visible when I look down upon the cuing lift. Do I turn this screw to raise or lower the cuing lift? Thanks again. Mike

If the item is old and un serviced, the berings for the arm may ned oiling with synthetic oil. Return to a hifi repair store for this

Hi
Check that the cuing lift isn't touching the arm as it gets to the end of the record.

When i play a record it skips and when i play it on another turntable the same record doesnt skip


Hi, most likely a worn stylus or the tracking weight is set too lightly. Adjust the balance weight at the back end of tonearm forward slightly. If no weight adjustment available put a very small coin on the end of tonearm above the stylus. styluscity@gmail.com

Hi, could just be platter not fitted hard down on spindle. I suggest you remove the platter and place it upon a dead flat surface to check to see that the platter is flat. If it is flat refit to turntable ensuring it is hard down on the spindle. If bent discard and replace with new platter.Platters can be ordered for all model 1200/1210 from styluscity@gmail.com

Tone arm skipping records.


The anti skate adjustment. And if you scratch @ all....move the weight all the way in and take off the little extra one that screws in on the back. Also a great tracking needle is a M44G.

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.

Needle skipping & not pushing down


There should be an "anti-skate" adjustment to control the arm moving across the record. It is possible that lubrication has stiffened up as well. This unit may need a general overhaul/cleaning.

High pitched singing


It could be the wrong drive belt if the turntable is of the old fashioned type and does'nt have the direct drive. If the 33/45 switch isn't working properly then its a possibility its the drive belt tension on the turntable.

EVERYTIME I PLAY A RECORD IT DRAGS TO PICK UP SPEED


Are you sure you have a Technics SL1200MK2 Direct Drive Turntable? If so, then there is a major problem with the drive system. This can only be diagnosed and repaired by a qualified technician.

If your turntable is not the Techics SL1200MK2, and you have no idea what turntable you have, look at the model's label, if it says BELT DRIVE - this is the reason why it drags to pick up speed. If it says DIRECT DRIVE, then take it to a service center for repair.

Adjustments on Technics SL-B2 Automatic Turntable


the pitch is just the speed, adjust to your liking.

"How do I adjust tracking pressure and anti skate?
If you are lucky enough to have these two adjustments here's how: Move tracking force counter weight till needle suspends/hovers above record. then rotate numbers to zero. (this is zero grams pressure on record) then rotate weight AND numbers to recommended tracking pressure for your needle usually 1.5 to 3 grams is average. Then rotate anti skate to be equal. That should get you there. If you still have adjustment related distortion then it may be time for a new needle.
NOTE: Anti skate is adjusting side to side pressure WITHIN GROOVE of record. Tracking pressure is how hard the needle is pushing down inside the groove." from

turntableneedles.com/FAQs_ep_33.html

lots of crackles are caused by crummy records and needles. to some small degree are unavoidable no matter what, but above all the records must be clean.

someday the manual may show up for free here
