Turning the return position adjustment (the flat black-headed screw next to the tone arm) a little clockvise will probably fix your problem.

Recently purhcased new Gemini T 1000 turntable and it skips constantly when playing records. I allowed more weight to be assigned to the needle on the record and it helped slightly (up to about 1.5 from...


I'm no expert, but based on the general idea of operation for a turntable, it sounds like the arm is getting bound up or being hindered in some way. If you pick the arm up and swing it back and forth manually, can you feel a place in the movement that seems to have some degree of resistance? You would want to move the arm very slowly and feel for even the slightest amount of resistance. It doesn't take much force to hold the arm from advancing. An ill positioned wire in the base of the arm could be the culprit or if the unit has an automated return home mechanism, there could be a problem there as well. Maybe working the arm back and forth manually several times to its fullest allowable extension, will help to eliminate the impediment. Do this caringly and without excessive force. I hope this helps.

I have purchased two ARK IV white elliptical Stylus replacement needles for my turntable and I am not getting the life out of these items, despite very limited play time. Seems like they just wear down...


What's the turntable? Skipping across the record would be a (mal)function of tracking and anti-skating. The recommended tracking force for this stylus os 3.0 grams. I've been out of the vinyl groove for some years now but I remember my Shure M95 tracking in the range of 1-1.5 g. Railroad spikes track at 3.0. Is this for 'scratching' or whatever it is they call that noise?

Playing to the end of the record


I LOVED the 40bs, and if you look at the size selector, which is located at an angle to the right side at the front along with the manual or auto setting in the front. There are 4 settings, 78-10, 45-7, 33-12, and 33-7 for the speeds and sizes of the recordings.

Sony PS-LX200H turntable plugged in to Onkyo TX-8211 inputs


After a few years it may be time to consider a new cartridge for the turntable. The current one may have given up the ghost. You might also want to check that the output cables from the turntable to the receiver are firmly plugged in. They may have come loose if someone was moving things or cleaning. Yet another thing to consider is the input on the receiver may not be working. You can test this by plugging in a cable with RCA plugs on both ends and touching the pins on the unconnected end. If the input's okay you'll hear a hum.

Probably it's time for a new cartridge. They don't last forever, especially if you, like me, are someone who still plays a lot of old vinyl!

Please take a moment to rate this solution a fixya if it's helped get you going, and thanks for asking here!

Pioneer PL-670 record rejects continually


Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.

Hi. I also have a DP-51F and am experiencing severe problems with tracking. My sense is that the tone arm may be damaged. Would you be willing to sell parts from your turntable if you're not going to repair it? Let me know as I would be interested.

Fisher turntable M-720 need to set weight and return levels


Hi mariahom

Setting the tracking force is an easy task. Try this method.

  1. first thing to do with the tone arm sitting above its rest, rotate the weight on the end of the tone arm until the tone arm is balanced in the middle. neither up nor down, just right in the middle.
  2. calibrate the numbered rotating collar on the weight so that 0 is exactly on the reference line on the tone arm.
  3. then turn the weight and numbered collar together to the tracking force that you are seeking. Most moving magnet cartridges need at least 1.5grams of weight. Set it for 2 grams if you are unsure of what your is or needs.
  4. adjust the anti skate dial(if you have one) to the same number as the tracking force you are using.
At this point you should be able to gently bounce the tone arm on your index finger(not above the record of course). This is about all there is to it.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.

I've got a Pioneer PL-300 turntable bought around the mid-80's. It hasn't been used much in years, especially due to a problem with the tone arm lifting up before the end of a record (45 rpm) has finished...


Hi Mikey. I shure hope you have solved your problem by now, but for everyone else, I woud like to shead some light on this matter. What you need to do is to adjust the auto-return lever that is located between the center of the platter and the tonearm, underneath the plastic cover. To do so, you first need to remove the platter so that can reach the adjustment-screw. 
This is how the lever looks like in my PL-300X and it should look the same for you. I've marked the adjustment-screw that can be reached through a hole under the platter.

and this is what it looks like with the cover on:

Hope this can solve your or anyone elses problem.  Ciao / Albin
