Under the tone arm next to the lever ther is a sort of plastic bar which lifts the tone arm when lever is up right, look along that bar and there is a screw which you turn as you would to tighten anything.you will see the bar move down,try again and if you still have the same problem repeat the process till done......

How do I get the turn table to move into play position


When you say the 'turn table into the play position' I assume that you mean the stylus arm (that holds the needle). Make sure that the turntable is made to automatically move the arm into the play position. Some turntables are manual, and do not have this feature. If yours does, the mechanism operates off a series of levers and cams that are operated off the turntable motor. Make sure that they are not jammed, and are lightly lubricated. There should be a lever control that sends the unit into the automatic mode. Move the lever to automatic, and watch the mechanism move and see if it is being jammed.

I have a Lab 330 that the towner arm will not go down. I have moved and locked it in the cradle for the move. No the lever is not stuck up. The turn table turns fine. But the arm will not go down. Wha


Tonearm placement is synchronized by the mechanism beneath the turntable so it will be necessary to remove the platter to expose that mechanism to make repairs.

I have a technic sl 1200 mk2 , my anti skate is


I gather you don't know how to adjust the tonearm. First put the stylus pressure, and antiskating to zero. Balance the tonearm for a free floating position. Ortofon cartridges will list the stylus pressure, generally 1.5 grams. Dial in the correct pressure, and set the antiskating to the same as the stylus pressure. If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your Technics, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

Turn table doesn't start when tone arm is lifted


Did it used to start when you lifted the tonearm?

Many turntables start when the arm is moved over the record.

I've just set up my Technics SL D212 turntable after moving house. It keeps skidding across records. I've tried the usual adjustments and leveled the turntable. Any clues?


Please make 100% certain the needle is still in place... To test this *GENTLY* rub your fingertip over it and you should hear noise from the speakers when you do. If there is NO noise then there is likely no needle.
Did you put the protective device on the needle/arm for the move? Is it still on there?
Sorry Mate, that the only thing I've got to help....

Tone arm pulls in one direction


If the force is towards the center of the disk, it's OK, it's the antiskating force. Set antiskating at 0, set the weight at 0gr, turn around the makeweight in order to set the tone arm parallel to the disk. With the antiskating at 0 the tone arm will stay parallel to the disk in the place you leave it. With the antiskating at any other position the tone arm will stay parallel to the disk going towards the center of the disk.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Hi. I'm have a problem with my Technics SL-BD20 turn table I've just purchased. When putting the arm onto the LP it just skips over the surface to the middle. Why does it do that? Cheers.


Try adjusting the tone arm weight so that the arm will be slightly heavier.

If this does not help, see if the tone arm manual lift handle is operational and fully released when the arm sits on the record.

Another possible cause are the tone arm position sensors inside the unit.

Hope you can fix it.

regards

Needle skipping & not pushing down


There should be an "anti-skate" adjustment to control the arm moving across the record. It is possible that lubrication has stiffened up as well. This unit may need a general overhaul/cleaning.

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.
