Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Stylus dropped on rotating turntable.

I recently purchased a Grado Black cart for use on an old BIC 960. Of course, the first thing that happened was that the automatic turntable dropped the tonearm onto the platter. I obviously screwed up and left it powered on, but wonder how bad? Is there a way to tell if the stylus was damaged without a tech looking at it? Thanks!!

    Every thing works except for the turntable, which I would like to get working again.

Hi,
Do one thing Remove the palter and put one drop of lubricating oil in the center shaft. Also put one drop in the motor shaft. Be carefull do not drope the oil in motor pulley.

About 11 months ago I bought an Elliptical upgrade stylus for the PL-990 and it worked great. Recently, it started giving me problems. The left channel would be very distorted and also would fade in and...


Very odd! Sounds like it's not fitting in right. Are you sure that you have the right type of stylus for the cartridge? If in doubt replace the entire cartridge & Stylus. If it still plays up then it's in your amp after that course of action.

As the stylus touches the record the turntable stops rotating


If this is a belt drive turntable you need to replace the belt. Make a note of how it fits, before removing the old one.

Digitech turntable - skipping stylus and arm


You might need to apply more pressure to the stylus. There should be a weight on the end of the arm, it should have a control to move it up and down. The only other thing is the stylus damaged from transit?

One channel vocals drop out


yes, it is very likely the stylus. the stock needle is conical shaped like a ball point pen. You might have a tonearm that is out of alignment but usually it's the needle. It is possible it is just dust on the tip but if it occurrs in consistent areas of the record, then it is likely that the music is just too demanding for the LP2D you will either have to use your old technics which is likely better quality or you could try upgrading the stylus on your LP2D.
If you do a yahoo search for "4-211-DE-GUARD" with the quotes, the 1st result will take you to an elliptical upgrade over the stock needle. The elliptical tip will pull more info out of the grooves and into your computer for further processing.
