Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Technics SL-D1; fairly new Shure SC35C cartridge with a brand new stylus. The problem: on many records (but not all) a skip occurs once every rotation in the same spot. Sometimes it skips like it's caught in a locked groove, other times the sound just cuts out entirely at that spot and it skips ahead a bit. I've tried all sorts of anti-skate and tonearm weight combinations to no avail. And as I said it does this on some records throughout others just a certain points and others not really at all. Thanks

Not enough weight and turn your anti skate higher.

Technics turntable manuals


Looking at both the turntable and the "Shure" Premier cartridge it looks like they both have the screw type of fixing that fits to the underside of the Headshell. So I would say yes. But have a look at both of them on the internet before you buy.
PS you have to add "Shure" or "record cartridge" when searching for Premier cartridges otherwise it comes up with printer cartridges.

Replacement Cartridge and stylus for Technics SL-D1 Technics Turntable


That turntable, like many others, has an S-shaped tonearm with a removeable headshell. You can use any standard screw-mount cartridge as a replacement. Which one you buy depends on what you want to spend and your intended use. If you're a DJ you'll need a more rugged cartridge than you do for listening at home, for instance.

One company I buy lots of parts from is Parts Express. Here's a link to their styli/cartridges pages. If you have the original cartridge and stylus, you can check if they have the exact replacement. Otherwise you can browse the other choices. You can find many other sources as well, and you may have an audio shop or musician's store in your area who stock cartridges.

Just bought a new Shure high performance stylus for my Technics SL-1200MK2. After a few weeks of use, while a record is playing the volume on the left channel will drop significantly. If I take the...


it could be two things:
1.the tone arm wires that connect to the head shell (blue-red-green-white i think)
2. the needle arm has twisted round
Put it on the other deck if you've got one & see if it does it.
look right at the end of the needle tip,& see if it's straight & pointing down, if not carefully twist the needle arm round until it is,& push it into back in to the cartridge a little bit.

My sl-5 skips on records often, Could it be the stylus pressure? how do i adjust the pressure? I've seen that this is a common problem with this turntable. Also could f*%#ed up records be the reason for...


What brand TT? Technics?

This from the manual:

"Place the unit in a stable and horizontal position where there is little or no vibration."

"Place the unit away from the speakers so that it will be subject to as little direct sound radiation as possible."

and

"Adjust stylus pressure in the following cases:
Stylus pressure is normally set to to 1.25 g but may be raised or lowered by +-.25 g.
It may be necessary to increase stylus pressure when playing records cut at high levels, or when room temperature is low, or when the unit easily picks up external vibrations.

This will prevent distortion and groove-skipping. In such cases, turn the stylus pressure adjustment screw clcokwise (+), as indicated. (Fig. 12)

Note:
Do not turn the adjustment screw further than the set limits (1.5 g ~ 1.0 g)"

Sears Tape deck/Turn table skipping!


Hi the pennies will mess up the stylus. There should be an anti skate setting at the back of the turn table, a round adjustable bit with numbers, increase the anti skate and then use the balance weigth (weight right at the back of the arm that turns to get the weight right. Set the anti skate with the tone arm light, then increase the weight a bit. Hope that helps
