SOURCE: I own Gemini TT01 belt drive turntable, as time

Take the platter off & tietern the bolt that holds the spindle pin to the motor or in your case the base.
if you carnt get to it by taking off the platter then u will have to unscrew the base & get to it that way.
OH & dont forget to unscrew the feet coz they hold the corners together.
& good luck mate coz Theres alot screws to take out.

if u get stuk E-Mail me.....

SOURCE: I have an Gemini TT01 MKII turntable. The problem

The mono button on your amp is simply feeding one channel to both sides, so is no indication that the other channel is working. Here's what to do. With the good channel comming off your deck, swap it over so it's going in the dead channel side on your amp. If the channel does not spring into life, it's not the record deck that is faulty, but your amp. Now your thinking but it works on CD! True, but the record deck socket on the amp has another pre-amp just for that purpose only. You can track this pre-amp down by following the wires from the socket.
If on the other hand the dead channel comes to life when you swap the jacks around, then it's is the deck. The most obvious fault being the cartridge. But some decks also have a pre-amp in them.

Missing the counter weight on my Gemini PT 2100... Anyone know how to replace it and where to get the parts?


Well this website is showing the picture of it, but you will have to enquire if they are still selling it.
It will just slide on and a screw will tighten it up.

I can't find on the net anyone else selling parts for this model, still.

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.

Arm weight needs adjusting...albums are skipping. how do I do this? thank you.


If you have a guard for the stylus, consider using it or be very careful with the following.
To balance the tonearm, rotate the counterweight at the back of the tonearm one way or the other until the arm floats - doesn't go up or down, just sits there level. Set the scale to zero.
THEN, rotate it inward (clockwise when viewed from the back) until it is correct for your cartrridge. If you're not sure of a correct setting, start with 1.5 gm and see how that goes.
If the TT has an anti-skate adjustment (a small knob with scale around the base of the tonearm, set that to whatever you set the tonearm pressure for.
If it still doesn't track OK, add pressure in 1/4 gm increments but do not exceed 2 gm in all but very rare cases.

Just got a new Pro-Jet III for christmas - followed instruction manual carefully - it said to set the counterweight to 17,5 for the cartridge it came with, which I did and when I try to put needle to...


It sounds like the counterweight is set to light for the cartridge. Try increasing the weight in small steps till the record plays without skating and sounds good.

I just set up my audio technica AT-PL120 for the first time, and I can't stop the tonearm from drifting back to the rest. I can't get the stylus to stay straight unless I add more on to the counterweight,...


KEEP THE ANTI SKATE AT 0 FOR NOW,then you need 2 balance the tonearm with the rear counterweight so it just hovers at around the height of the platter.now you need to zero the gauge on the rear counterweight being carefull not to turn the counterweight,then check again that the tonearm still hovers.then screw counterweight inwards untill the dial on counterweight reads between 1.5- 2 grams dependin on tracking weight of cartridge.then adjust antiskate 2 whatever u set the tracking weight to.i would also double check with a spirit level ur level surface

Counterweight on my technics 1200 wont catch to screw on. Threads inside the weight look fine but there seems to be a small "bump" on the under back side of the tone arm. This "bump" doesnt stick out as...


It doesn't screw on, it pushes on....

"With the tonearm locked in place, put the anti‐skate
dial on "0" and push the counterweight onto the rear of
the tonearm. Make sure that the numbers face to the
front of the turntable. Turn the weight until you feel it
"click" into place.

Unlock the tonearm from the rest, and move it
toward the middle, about one inch from the edge of the
platter. Hold the arm off the surface with your right
hand on the finger lift. Begin turning the counterweight
one way or the other, until the arm seems to just
"float".

As seen in the picture, the arm, when properly
floating, will not face up nor down.. it will stay
with the platter. It may take a few tries to get
correct. Lock the tonearm back on it's rest.

Holding the rear, silver, section of the counterweight
with one hand, use your other hand to turn JUST the
number ring. It doesn't matter which direction you turn
it, but you will want "0" to face up when you are done.

Using just one hand, turn the entire counterweight
(the silver part) COUNTERCLOCKWISE until the
recommended tracking force is achieved. New
cartridges will tell what the ideal number is. As a rule of
thumb, however, most "hi‐fi" cartridges track between
1 and 2 grams, while most DJ cartridges track between
3 and 5 grams.

Set the anti‐skate dial to coincide with the tracking
force... in other words, if the tracking force is 2 grams,
set the anti‐skate dial to "2". The exception is for DJ's
who scratch and back‐cue. Your anti‐skate must be left
on "0". "

How to install shure m44-7 cartridge on technic sl 1200.ive aproblem with the wt.,as i feel the shure cartridge is lighter then other cartridges do ihave to install extra wt. with the cartridge


No, you should not need to install extra weights. Adjust the tomearm counterweight (on the back of the tonearm).
Install new cartridge.
Set tracking force dial to zero.
Adjust counter weight so tonearm floats vertically. This is the balance point.
Dial in tracking force, 1 to 3 grams.
If you cannot achieve balance point then you may have to add weight between the cartridge and the cartridge mount

When i backspin the arm is forcing itself off the vinyl


IMO the problem can be solved in 2 ways, either move the counterweight on the back of the arm towards the turning point of the arm ( by just adjusting it 10 - 20 % of an whole spin you can adjust a lot), or buy an other needle which is heavier then this one...
