Marantz TT221 turntable anti-skating problem

Pulled my turntable out of storage (8 years+-) and now the ant-skating is pulling hard enough on the arm that clicking the cue sends the arm to mid record. I have turned down the anti-skating and that gets me mid record, in its normal setting it goes straight to the middle of record.
Is there a procedure for opening them up and adjusting the tension on the anti-skating down?

Hi, sounds more like tje stylus tip is gone and therefore the needle isn't holding to the grooves rather than a tracking weight or anti skate problem. Styluscity@gmail.com

SOURCE: I can't get my Marantz 6025 turntable to turn?

As you Marantz 6025 is a belt drive type turntable, the most possible problem is that the belt has been cut or destroyed. You can check it out before order a new one.
Here is the replacement procedure. Pull up the rubber mat, pull up the platter and find the belt. If the belt is removed from the platter, replace it with the glossy side outward. Pull the platter back at the original position. Turn until one of the 2 big openings come over the motor pulley. With your finger place the belt from the platter at the motor pulley. Pull the rubber mat back. You are ready. Here is a schematic for all the above:

SOURCE: My Marantz 6110 will not shut off-turntable keeps

My Marantz 6110 wasn't working right. I had it repaired at a stereo store. They told me the grease was old and had hardened which made it difficult to operate the way it was supposed to. They cleaned it and used new grease. It's been working great for the last 10 years. I hope this helps.

How do I fix the tonearm of my Technics SL-1950 so it doesn't keep pulling to the right when in neutral balance?


The anti-skating control adds an outward pull to the arm to compensate for the inward pull exerted on the arm when a record is being played.

Setting the anti-skating control to "0" should virtually eliminate the drift you mention when the arm is in neutral balance. Also make sure that the whole unit is level as this may also affect the arm's tendency to drift.

Needle skipping towards end of record


If you lower the tonearm to the record surface, and it just slides towards the center, chances are the stylus(needle) is either broken or covered with dust. Clean and inspect. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

How do I adjust the anti skid?


Perhaps it might help to know your symptom . There are no user adjustments for either tracking force or ant-skate. They recommend making sure the TT is level.

Needle skipping & not pushing down


There should be an "anti-skate" adjustment to control the arm moving across the record. It is possible that lubrication has stiffened up as well. This unit may need a general overhaul/cleaning.

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
