I don't know the model in question, but all you need to know is what type of cartridge can be used with the amp. Ceramic or Magnetic? Once you know that you can fit any that will phyiscally fit in the headshell of the deck of the type that can be used with the amp.

I need the schematic diagram for an antique radio RCA VICTOR model A25 made in Montreal circa 1941


I wasn't able to find information for the A25 specifically, however, there are a LOT of antique RCA Victor (US and Canadian) schematics here:

Do you have any more details about the radio? An alternate model number perhaps?

Please rate this answer if helpful.

Turntable arm slides across record, Am. D.J.-1500


See what type of cartridge is installed in the arm. Manufacturers use common cartridges in turntables, such as Stanton, Shure etc. Detach the head shell from the arm (it usually slips right off via a locking ring and four-pin mini plug) Look for the manufacturer and model number on the cartridge. No need to remove it from the head shell. On most modern cartridges, the stylus (as they are called, rather than the needle) simply slips off and on. No need to remove the entire cartridge (via screws) and re-align it. In fact, many DJs bring a set spare cartridges and styli on a gig, already mounted in head shells, and simply interchange them as needed. When you have the make and model of the cartridge, go to Radio Shack or use their website to order a new one...or  two. Or go to Google and enter "phono stylus" as your search term. You will find reasonably priced styli for nearly every cartridge imaginable. I operate 50 year-old turntables and am able to find replacement cartridges and styli on line. Ebay also has a number of listings, by make and model of the cartridge. When the new stylus arrives, observe how easily the old one comes out of the cartridge- usually pull and slide - and slide the new one in. Re-insert the head shell on the arm, tighten the locking ring, and you're good to spin!

I have a 1963 RCA Victor Victrola record player/stereo that the speakers don't work. Where can I find replacement parts?


Hi pab69874

Have you been able to test the speakers to determine that that is the problem? Parts are quite available for vintage gear, you just need to know where to look. If the speaker drivers are faulty, if you can give me the make and model number off the back of the magnet, I can source them for you.

Low Volume from right speaker of entertainment center - turntable only


Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...

There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..

If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.

If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..

So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
or
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
or
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...

Cheers from YU BEUT
