MAKE MY TONEARM STOP SKATING


It's possible your weight adjustment has been mis-adjusted since you last used your turntable. On the tonearm, there should be a weight adjustment wheel. Turn this all the way towards the needle (IN). Now, adjust it backwards until there is no resistance in the tone arm - this is your zero point, reset the wheel on the weight adjustment knob to read 0. Now, adjust it forward to 3 grams of downward pressure. This is usually the minimum amount of force needed on a record. If it still skates at this setting, adjust it with gradual amounts of greater force until the skating stops.

Hi folks, my sl 1210 has one broken tonearm axle bearing! What could I do? thanks a lot! your ferdi


Hi, sadly that part is not available separately and Technics would have you buy a complete tonearm. I have damaged tonearms in stock from replacement jobs and would be happy to send you a bearing and bush from one of those. Contact me at Styluscity.com. Cheers John.

I have a vestax qfo le and I'm only getting sound from one channel on the master out I have cleaned the headshell changed leads and I'm stuck. Does any one know of someone who could fix turntables in the...


Sam, I have a silver QFO and just recently I had problems with Phono/Line 1 where I lost sound but Phono/Line 2 (I use for IPod) was fine.
I took the fader out and cleaned it, checked wiring connections inside and tested and it was ok and I could use again..
Then during a skratch session, the Phono/Line 1 just lost sound again. If I turned my speakers and the QFO volume right up, I could hear very distorted sound.
I turned off by the power switch on the back of the QFO and turned on and I got a long hissing sound which died out. I still had no sound.
I turned off and back on and this time there was no hissing sound and Phono/Line 1 was ok.
Every time I get this problem now, I just turn off and back on a couple of times and the sound comes back.
I think it may be something to do with the sound control unit inside.
I know that this is not really a solution but your not alone with your problem.
I even had one of the feet fall off which I had to supa glu back together.
I have tried contacting Vestax but they wont reply.
I dont know about you but I was disappointed with the build quality of the QFO. Feels cheap and not your usual high quality Japan build.
I bet Q'Bert does not get any of these problems!!!!!!
Peace

Tonearm base unit


You will have to order a new base, which is not cheap - about $150 - and replacement is a little complex, because you have to take apart your unit from the bottom.

Could be one of 3 issues:

1) Tonearm
2) RCA Cables
3) Cartridge/Styli

I generally tell people to try different cartridges first. If that doesn't work, then you know it's either your tonearm or your RCA cables. 80% of the time, it's the RCA cables. It's very hard to determine which one it is at this point without opening her up and putting on some new RCA cables to test. If it works, then your good. If not, then you know it's your tonearm, and will need to be replaced.

Tone Arm


It's very hard to get those screws aligned and tightened correctly. They are machine calibrated with the precise amount of torque. Once they become loose, it's very hard to get them back to original factory settings. Also, those screws are conical screws, which means they have a cone shaped tip on them. That cone shaped section sits on 4 very small ball bearings which balance the tonearm. There is a very thin piece of sheet metal which protects the ball bearings and keeps them aligned, if any of these parts are damaged, or bent in any way, your tonearm is damaged.

Unfortunately, if you can't get the balance correct, you will have to replace the tonearm. You can buy a new TONEARM HERE, however, replacing it, is a whole other process and not recommended if you have no soldering experience, as you could damage your unit even more.

Hope this helps.

once you soldered to circuit board place - this might help Advanced Tonearm stuff Tightening the suspension on your tonearm Some TT's have tonearms which seem to be loose. If you grab the tonearm and pull it gently back and forth and it seems loose you can tighten it. It shouldn't move at all. A loose suspension can severely affect it's performance - from jumping needles to binding. It's pretty easy to tighten the suspension. You'll need a small flat screwdriver and a large one. Use the large one to loosen the outer locking screw on the top of the pivot point. Now use the smaller screwdriver to loosen up the smaller screw. Put a drop of oil where the bearings are (under that top support on the other end of the adjustment screw) so that it doesn't bind. Now tighten the small screw slowly until it just contacts the bearings. Adjust the tightness so the tonearm doesn't wiggle if you pull on it but leave it loose enough for the tonearm to pivot freely without binding. Adjust carefully and don't overtighten otherwise the bearings will be damaged! When done, tighten up the locking screw. Tightening up the headshell locking ring Have you put on your headshell, twisted that knurled tightener at the end of the tonearm as tight as possible and have found that the headshell still moves around? What will happen is that the headshell won't sit parallel to the record but may be tilted as a result of twisting of the headshell. This usually occurs when you change headshells a lot or if you've had your turntable for a while, and can contribute to needle jumping so here's what you do to fix it. First read 3.2 on base disassembly. Remove the rubber base. There will be this big piece of hard black plastic covering almost everything. You'll need to remove it. To remove the tonearm assembly look for three screws (all formerly under that black plastic) and unscrew them. Be careful not to drop the tonearm when you remove that last screw! Now, remove the tonearm assembly from the rest of the 1200, and look at the bottom of the tonearm where the headshell is put in. There will be two tiny philips screws there. Get a jewelers screwdriver of the CORRECT size and tighten those up. Put the headshell on and try wiggling it to make sure everything is right. Now put your tonearm back on and close everything back up. hope this helps peace DJ Nyce

Tonearms if not installed correctly can screw you your records over time. Personally, I'd pay the extra 20. Good Luck.
