SOURCE: technics mk2 tone arm replacement

once you soldered to circuit board place - this might help Advanced Tonearm stuff Tightening the suspension on your tonearm Some TT's have tonearms which seem to be loose. If you grab the tonearm and pull it gently back and forth and it seems loose you can tighten it. It shouldn't move at all. A loose suspension can severely affect it's performance - from jumping needles to binding. It's pretty easy to tighten the suspension. You'll need a small flat screwdriver and a large one. Use the large one to loosen the outer locking screw on the top of the pivot point. Now use the smaller screwdriver to loosen up the smaller screw. Put a drop of oil where the bearings are (under that top support on the other end of the adjustment screw) so that it doesn't bind. Now tighten the small screw slowly until it just contacts the bearings. Adjust the tightness so the tonearm doesn't wiggle if you pull on it but leave it loose enough for the tonearm to pivot freely without binding. Adjust carefully and don't overtighten otherwise the bearings will be damaged! When done, tighten up the locking screw. Tightening up the headshell locking ring Have you put on your headshell, twisted that knurled tightener at the end of the tonearm as tight as possible and have found that the headshell still moves around? What will happen is that the headshell won't sit parallel to the record but may be tilted as a result of twisting of the headshell. This usually occurs when you change headshells a lot or if you've had your turntable for a while, and can contribute to needle jumping so here's what you do to fix it. First read 3.2 on base disassembly. Remove the rubber base. There will be this big piece of hard black plastic covering almost everything. You'll need to remove it. To remove the tonearm assembly look for three screws (all formerly under that black plastic) and unscrew them. Be careful not to drop the tonearm when you remove that last screw! Now, remove the tonearm assembly from the rest of the 1200, and look at the bottom of the tonearm where the headshell is put in. There will be two tiny philips screws there. Get a jewelers screwdriver of the CORRECT size and tighten those up. Put the headshell on and try wiggling it to make sure everything is right. Now put your tonearm back on and close everything back up. hope this helps peace DJ Nyce

SOURCE: The tone arm will not drop on our Technics sl-dd33 turntable.

Have you left the tone arm lift in the up position?
If not: At the end of a record the mechanism lifts the tone arm, returns it to the rest, lowers it and switches off the motor.
It the motor has stopped too early, the tone arm will remain raised.
You can try gently rotating the platter clockwise by hand. This may allow the return cycle to finish.

SOURCE: Denon dp-35F turntable.

It apears the lead wiring contact arrangement is typically generic. Green over Red and Blue over white. I searched Google by images and found the wiring arrangement in a detailed photograph of a Denon headpiece with cartridge installed.
So always remember to draw a diagram before disassembling something.

Linear tracking tonearms probably don't move much under manual control. It would still help if we knew the model number.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the

Basically, like almost any other turntable.

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

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 Tracking and Anti-skating controls 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 and anti-skating. Play records.

Want to unlock sansui turntable p-l51


I don't know what you mean by locked, but if the table won't move and is locked in place, you probably still have the shipping screws in place. Remove the rubber mat and the platter. Under there, you will generally find red screws or screws with tags that must be removed to allow to platter to turn. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Turn table doesn't start when tone arm is lifted


Did it used to start when you lifted the tonearm?

Many turntables start when the arm is moved over the record.

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249


Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com

How do you shift to play records. When I turn to phono on dial it turns the unit off. I have a radio cd player with CR24 turntable


Move the tone arm off the rest on to the record and it will start to spin. There is a switch that turns the player off when the tone arm is on the rest.

My turntable keeps skiping for no reason, no matter the record. i also made sure the turntable was level. the turntable is a vestax 2000mkII


What is the weight on the stylus? Flip the protective shield down to protect the stylus if available. Tare the tone arm (adjust the counterweight on the back of the arm until the arm floats perfectly level), then hold the counterweight and turn the dial markings to read zero. If you cannot find the recommended mass for the stylus you can use the average weight of 3g. Verify your tone arm is still floating in the center and the arm is perfectly level. Turn the counterweight until the dial indicates the specified weight of the cartridge manufacture specification sheet or you can set it for 3g if you do not have the specification sheet.

Have a Sansui compu edit p-m70 turtable. I turn


Lift off the turntable mat and the platter. Near the tone-arm, remove two screws holding down a panel and then inspect the tonearm belt. They wear out and stretch out and this could be the problem. Replacement is easy and does not require any special tools or further dissasembly.

Lock light indicates that turntable platter speed has reached correct speed.

I am repairing a Sansui XP99 that will just stop,normally at begining of LP record. Sometimes will play all the way through then stop. Will not repeat. Also tone arm lifter is not working


check the drive belt.the arm lifter will not work if there is not enough torque. lubricate the bushings in the motor,as the grease gums up after some years .
