Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I AM ORIGINAL OWNER OF JVC COMPONENT SYSTEM PURCHASED IN 1986. PLAYED VINYL LESS AND LESS AS YEARS WENT BY. HAVE REVIVED INTEREST IN PLAYING MY OLD RECORDS. PROBLEM: WHEN THE TONEARM DROPS TO PLAY, IT WANTS TO SLIDE A QUARTER INCH OR SO ACROSS THE RECORD BEFORE IT SETTLES. IS THERE AN ADJUSTMENT I NEED TO ADDRESS? ANY INFORMATION ON FINETUNING MY TRACKING, ETC. WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANKS FOR HELP, JOHN
It's possible your weight adjustment has been mis-adjusted since you last used your turntable. On the tonearm, there should be a weight adjustment wheel. Turn this all the way towards the needle (IN). Now, adjust it backwards until there is no resistance in the tone arm - this is your zero point, reset the wheel on the weight adjustment knob to read 0. Now, adjust it forward to 3 grams of downward pressure. This is usually the minimum amount of force needed on a record. If it still skates at this setting, adjust it with gradual amounts of greater force until the skating stops.
