To replace the stylus (N-6516 from your Sony dealer)

1.Turn off the amplifier
2. Protect the stylus with the stylus cover (it flips down 90 degrees)
3. Grasp the stylus holder (exposed when cover was flipped down) and pull it away from the cartridge body
4. Insert the stylus by pushing it in to the cartridge receptacle. Flip the stylus protector up.

SOURCE: RCA Lawton 841.662 Turntable. How do i get to replacment needles to put a needle on? Can't find any videos on you tube or instruction manual.

The bit in red in your photo is the stylus cartridge and holds the needle/stylus. This part should come off and you replace the whole red cartridge with the new cartridge. In your photo it looks like the needle is missing. See here for replacement:

Looking to upgrade the cartridge/styli in my ion audio profile pro turntable. What products/company/style should I be looking for?

I have the same turntable, and sadly the cartridge is proprietary and unable to be changed. However, you can still upgrade the sound quality by replacing the stylus to a higher quality needle. I did that for about $25 and feel better about playing my precious vinyl. The biggest problem to this turntable is the lack of anti-skate. That's very bad...

Trouble with cartridge alignment

Hi, i was going to suggest a dedicated cartridge weiging scales but the one one the arm should suffice.
Normally it should be between 1.5 and 2 grams, as a ball park figure , though some will vary quite considerably.I think this can take upto 5 grams( a bit heavy really)
Looking at the picture, it looks like the stylus cantilever has colapsed, by someone dropping the cartidge onto the record.
If you think the alignment is out then you neded to buy a Cartidge allignment protractor, so you can setup your cartidge properly and don't ruin your records.
You could try and loosed the cartridge bols and move the cartridge so its parallel with the front of the head shell.

Are you using it for DJ use or just for listening to music?

I have just found on ebay, this -

If you need more help, please ask.

Regards - Anthony
