After sitting unused for many years, I just

After sitting unused for many years I just purchased a new needle for my turntable and tried it out. My problem is the beginning of the record plays and tracks just fine but towards the center of the record the needle gets stuck playing a spot over and over. I have set the counterweight and antiskate mechanisms to the factory suggestions but still have the problem. Sue

Hi, Does the arm have a lever to lift the arm up, also called a cue. I had an arm where it did exactly the same thing and found it to be the lifting device. What turntable is it you have?

Have you tried testing it on something else, I guess my thought it possibly it the needle. In other words are you pretty sure your needle is working. I have had the problem years ago with the needle not registering. And next step, of course you make sure it plugs into the audio out put of the receiver. And third try plugging in , if you have it, another device to make sure your out put of receiver is working, if it does then most likely it is your needle. I really hope this helps some, thank mike

I just purchases a Technics 1200 turntable for $70.00. I have found a problem, at the end of the album, the arm does not auto return, but just stays on the album. Could this be a simple problem,...

First off, Congratulations on such a excellent deal! That's a $500.00 turntable. I know I own a pair and I've been a DJ for 18 years.

Second, the Technics 1200 does not have an auto return. You have to pick up the needle and bring it back manually.

I can't see anyone still making a 40 year old turntable arm. You could get a replacement cartridge for it. You might need either a ceramic or magnetic one, depending on the pre-amp of the RCA.
