Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I inherited a Garrard Synchro-lab 72B that I want to use to play 78 rpm records. I also bought a Shure M78S cartridge with the required 2.5-mil stylus. however when I started to work on replacing the cartridge I was stumped about figuring out how to swing the arm out far enough to gain access to the screws. I see the small lever that rotates when I wing the arm around and prevents it from being moved over the edge of the base but many of the parts appear to be delicate and I didn't want to break something in the process.

Sometimes you have to invert a changer and place on padded supports to get access to cartridge. Be sure to identify wire connections to the old cartridge before removal and keep track of cartridge mounting hardware so it doesn't get lost.

Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.

SOURCE: Tone arm won't drop

This is a tough one. There is usually a series of gears that function in unison to make all the magic happens. These gears are usually set in motion by a smaller belt located inside the unit. If this belt has come off or is damaged, your unit will not work. Or, if the gears have cracked, or dried up, same issue.

Suggest taking it to a service center for repair.

SOURCE: Tone Arm skips past first song

Hello, A. Do not try to close the case when there is a record inside!! The fact that the turntable cannot do this is not a design flaw--you'll be hard pressed to find a portable turntable that can close with a record inside because if you were to pick up the player with one inside, it could easily slip off of the spindle and scratch against the sides of the player.
B. Are you using the cueing lever to lift the tone arm before you place it on the record? Read the instructions to see where the cuing lever is (it's a little switch on the right side of the tone arm). When you lift it, the tone arm will lift up and allow you to position it wherever you want on a record, then you depress the lever to make the tone arm touch the record and being playing.
I hope that helps!

Make sure all controllers are connected to the console. If that isn't the problem go to quickplay or start new game or something along those lines and when it comes up make sure there are two controllers on that game menu

hopefully this works

SOURCE: blender blade not turning, rotating piece on base not connected

this is getting more and more common there is a part between the motor and the drive gear that snaps for no reason . its job is to snap if the blades jam as a "fuse" to save your house from a overheating ,jammed motor . the problem is there are no parts to buy to fix this . if its new take it back to where you bought it . otherwise shipping it 2 ways for repair to the factory is sometimes as much or more as a new blender ........ i would recomend you do one of two things : go to a goodwill or other type shop and get a nice vintage blender , it will last forever ! or move up to a vita mix . its costly but it will realy last you ... this new made in china junk is just bad news even when it has the kitchen aid name on it . its still the same junk ..... good luck........ Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob .

Why was 78 rpm chosen as the standard speed for Vinyl records?


Edison patented the phonograph record at 80 rpm. Victrola to keep from infringing on his patent went with the 78 rpm standard. Afterward RCA and several others used 78 as their standard.

I bought an old Garrard turntable. But when I put a record on you can't hear it playing through the speakers. I thought it was the needle but I replaced it and still no sound through speaker. I know...


Firstly check all the connections to the cartridge where the stylus fits. If they are OK. Remove them and with the amp on touch each wire -one at a time- with your finger. If the system is OK you should hear on two wires a buzz - one for each channel. If you do replace the cartridge. If you don't, then there's either a bad connection, or a faulty pre-amp inside the stereo.

Just check the connections to the cartridge on the Stanton. Make certain they fit and are correctly fitted. Also check or replace the stylus, if it is not new.

What is required to convert 78rpm records to mp3 format?


The cartridge must have a stylus for 78rpm records. If the turntable does not have a 78 speed play it back at 45rpm. Record it and using the software you have or get one such as Audio Cleaning Lab, just select the option to convert from 45 to 78. You can then carry out any audio modifications to clean it up, then save it as an MP3.
Never use a 45/33 stylus to play a 78 and never use a 78 to play a 45/33 record.

press the synchro start button, the tape deck should now go to REC PAUSE, press the SPEED button till you get the required recording speed then press the synchro start again and it should start to record from deck 1 to deck 2.

make sure the tabs at the top of the tape you want to record on are intact,
if not just put a bit of sticky tape over holes.

My console can only play 45 rpm records


There should be a record size selector switch somewhere. It will move the arm to the positions for 12inch 7inch and 10inch records. It must be set to 7inch or 10 at the moment. For 33 it should be on '12' and for 45 on '7'.
