Slant o matic 401g skipping stitches what is wrong


Make sure you are using a brand new needle. A damaged needle will frequently cause skipped stitches. (Changing the needle is the least expensive repair for machine problems!!!!)

Do you have a a weightscale for the needle pressure, anti-skate right and the table straight. An overhang gauge and set the needle in the right angle. If that't ok make sure the record and needle is real clean, since you often don't see that piece of does which causes it.

We changed to a smaller needle 70/10 from 80/12 and machine won't sew


Go back to the larger needle size. Bet you're seeing skipped stitches or crazy tension issues. Thicker stacks of fabrics need thicker needles. See also: http://www.gwsms.com/didyouknow.htm

Juki skipping stitches


completely un-thread the machine and rethread it in this order.

Upper Looper, Lower looper, right needle Left needle. It has to be in that order ALWAYS. If you break a thread... un thread and start the threading process again.

If rethreading doesn't work... change the needle that is skipping.

Good luck

Sears Tape deck/Turn table skipping!


Hi the pennies will mess up the stylus. There should be an anti skate setting at the back of the turn table, a round adjustable bit with numbers, increase the anti skate and then use the balance weigth (weight right at the back of the arm that turns to get the weight right. Set the anti skate with the tone arm light, then increase the weight a bit. Hope that helps

Skid problem.


My first guess would be the weights as well, try and make sure you are adjusting them correctly. I have not seen worn needles skip that bad but some tracking problems can occur. The loss of SQ can be interpreted as the weights being off balance, so as the needle gets further away the sound quality and intensity decreases. That combined with your severe tracking problem makes me believe your weights are off. You should still check into the needles- for two reasons (make sure the tables are on a stable and level surface as well).
1- The needles may not be the right ones (DJ's often switch them around to get different performance)
2.If the needles are subjected to a lot of tracking problems they will wear quickly-Good luck

Right needle skipping stitches Janome 4623LE


if you adjust that setting, check that the needle goes into the needle plate the exact same distance front to back on both the right and left side. Also, be careful not to change the height when changing the twist.

The record player skips


Hi There,
From your description it sounds like there is insufficient weight on the needle end of the pick up arm.

The pickup arm is very delicate in its balance at the "rear arm end" fulcrum.

This weight is adjustable to allow the needle to press on the music track to an exact pressure and it is adjustable so that this pressure does not damage the music track.

There should be a wheel type thingy at the rear end of the pickup arm.

This wheel is usually marked in Grams, and to make the needle end heavier to stop "skipping' you turn the wheel to wards the + sign.
This + sign means more weight on the needle.

There also should be a - sign, and the wheel, when turned in that direction, the weight on the needle is reduced.
You need to be aware that a needle really needs to exist in the cartridge as they can be broken off very easily and if there is no needle present there, then there is no way you will get any music from the turntable.

So check there really is a needle there...use a magnifying glass to see....

If thats OK then place the needle end of the pickup arm on to the record surface and turn the weight wheel until the needle just lifts from the record surtface.
Now that this stage has been received turn the weight wheel in the reverse direction by around 5-7 grams in the heavy + direction.

The needle should now be resting on the records surface and not lifting at all.

It should play like this,,,BUT please ensure the record player is on a perfectly flat surface the
needle wont work on any incline at all...

If you turn the amp on in the phono switch position and carefully hold the needle over the record and touch the needle with your finger you should get a scratchy sound from the speakers.....

This is a basic test to ensure the amplifier and all the wiring is in place and doing its job..
Im Sorry you had a run around from the repair company but some of them are not interested in repair work any more they just want to sell new hardware...
It pays to ask if they are Pepared to repair stuff for you , then get a commitment of a reasonable repair date and time in writing.

If this date and time is exceeded then you dont have to pay for the repairs do you??
As they have missed the service level agreement you had with them for the reapir date and time..

Hope this helps

Some sounds are lower in songs


Well, it seems you answered your own question. Replace your stylus. If that doesn't solve your problem, the issue might be your RCA cables or tonearm.

What many people don't understand is that it takes ALOT to wear out a record. I mean, you would have to play a record about a good 1000 times before you'll see any sort of real wear/tear on it. Why do you think they last so long? Besides, record wear doesn't sound like that. With TRUE record wear you'll experience lots of skipping from your stylus, as the grooves have worn down. Also, you'll get alot of pan issues, where the sound goes in/out left/right side. The grooves of a record are a V shape, and the left side of the V carries the left signal, and the right side carries the right signal. With record wear, usually 1 side will wear out quicker than the other, and that's why you'll get inconsistencies with sound.

Unless you play the same record over and over again for the past few years, you wont see this kind of wear.

Replace your stylus first, then have your RCA cables and tonearm checked. Try cleaning out your tonearm with 99.9% PURE ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL and see if that does anything.

Good luck
