SOURCE: i balanced my tonearms correctly.

Balancing the tone arm is a two step process. Set the needle weight adjustment to zero(0) and make sure that the tone arm is balanced. It should rest horizontally without touching anything. Next, set the needle weight (usually 1.5 grams). Both adjustments should be on the rear of the tone arm. That should cause the tone arm to drop toward the record and have the correct pressure for the needle. Also, check the anti-skate adjustment. If that is off, the behavior you describe will occur as well.

SOURCE: Sony PS-LX200H turntable plugged in to Onkyo TX-8211 inputs

After a few years it may be time to consider a new cartridge for the turntable. The current one may have given up the ghost. You might also want to check that the output cables from the turntable to the receiver are firmly plugged in. They may have come loose if someone was moving things or cleaning. Yet another thing to consider is the input on the receiver may not be working. You can test this by plugging in a cable with RCA plugs on both ends and touching the pins on the unconnected end. If the input's okay you'll hear a hum.

Probably it's time for a new cartridge. They don't last forever, especially if you, like me, are someone who still plays a lot of old vinyl!

Please take a moment to rate this solution a fixya if it's helped get you going, and thanks for asking here!

I have purchased two ARK IV white elliptical Stylus replacement needles for my turntable and I am not getting the life out of these items, despite very limited play time. Seems like they just wear down...


What's the turntable? Skipping across the record would be a (mal)function of tracking and anti-skating. The recommended tracking force for this stylus os 3.0 grams. I've been out of the vinyl groove for some years now but I remember my Shure M95 tracking in the range of 1-1.5 g. Railroad spikes track at 3.0. Is this for 'scratching' or whatever it is they call that noise?

I have an older QL-45 turntable that needs tone arm adjustment- I don`t know how to set the weight so it doesn`t lower down to album so hard or heavily


I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

Make a note of the tracking force setting.


Make sure the turntable is level.


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 Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting 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 on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.

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.

Hi there on my stanton t-80 decks every so often it will only start playing out of one speaker. I've changed the cables and was fine and then it occured again, its not the mixer because i've done checks on...


It could be a problem with the cartridge/stylus, since you have eliminated the mixer as a source of the problem, it must be in the turntable. The only place for it to come from would be the stylus/cartridge or the wires in the tone arm, or the pre-amp that those wires go to, or some bad solder in the output circuit being used. My guess would be the cartridge and/or stylus, it is taking much more contact and friction than anything else which could cause it to be intermittent. Please understand that I can only guess at your problem since I do not have the unit in front of me to check myself, so I can not be certain of your problem.

I hope this helps,
Dave

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

I have new Prolectrix turntable USB Direct and tone arm leaves record before end of playing record. Hope you can help. Thanks


Turning the return position adjustment (the flat black-headed screw next to the tone arm) a little clockvise will probably fix your problem.

My turn table is and old one my needle is broken would i beable to get a new arm for it


With a model number and the brand of your turntable I could probably find what you need with that information. Without that information there is no way to find the right parts.

I have been fixing turntables for over 17 years and have only needed to replace the arm on 2 or 3 of them in that time. It is very unlikely that you would need the arm replaced. The arm is a little more difficult to find for some turntables, but it is not impossible.

Finding the stylus, and/or cartridge with the stylus is not too much of a problem.

Just supply the needed information and I will take care of it for you.
