Pl-600 needle question

A record repair place says I need to buy a mount instead of the needle because they are hard to find.  Do you agree?  Where can I find a needle?  Or a mount for cheap?
Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Sorry but I don't really have any advice on getting a needle for this turntable. I only know what I've worked on, and so far I've only worked on the belt. Looks like I'm going to have to work on the speed control, unfortunately, I'm not sure how that's going to work out.

Sorry I couldn't be more help, and good luck!

Mark

if its skipping ahead Almost like the needle is just gliding across the Record. It means your needle is bent, dirty or broken, Take it off and look at it closely.

I have Pioneer pl202az record player.. need help finding to replace the broken needle..


It is seldom worth just replacing a needle. It's not much more expensive to replace the whole cartridge. Easily available online - search by make and model number on Amazon

1987 I bought what was top of the range in DVD Recorders one with a 250GB Hard Disk, The model was a Sony RDR-HXD1065 HMDI That cost £526-00 from a reputable High Street Dealer in Hythe Kent. On...


I assume you got it in 2007 since the DVD player wasn't invented until the late 1993 - early 1994 timeframe. You're out of luck because initially when it did not work and you returned it for another one, you should have gotten your money back instead. It's kind of a given that if two machines do not work that something is wrong with the model. Instead of sending it off and losing more money, you should have either returned it or online auctioned it and received some if not all of your money back. I apologize for being so blunt but when something doesn't work the day out of the new box, something is definately wrong. Accept the fact that you bought a defective DVD player/recorder and move on. Just be more careful - read customer reviews and do your research. Sorry but this is the nicest to-the-point answer you're going to get.

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.

The record player skips


Hi There,
From your description it sounds like there is insufficient weight on the needle end of the pick up arm.

The pickup arm is very delicate in its balance at the "rear arm end" fulcrum.

This weight is adjustable to allow the needle to press on the music track to an exact pressure and it is adjustable so that this pressure does not damage the music track.

There should be a wheel type thingy at the rear end of the pickup arm.

This wheel is usually marked in Grams, and to make the needle end heavier to stop "skipping' you turn the wheel to wards the + sign.
This + sign means more weight on the needle.

There also should be a - sign, and the wheel, when turned in that direction, the weight on the needle is reduced.
You need to be aware that a needle really needs to exist in the cartridge as they can be broken off very easily and if there is no needle present there, then there is no way you will get any music from the turntable.

So check there really is a needle there...use a magnifying glass to see....

If thats OK then place the needle end of the pickup arm on to the record surface and turn the weight wheel until the needle just lifts from the record surtface.
Now that this stage has been received turn the weight wheel in the reverse direction by around 5-7 grams in the heavy + direction.

The needle should now be resting on the records surface and not lifting at all.

It should play like this,,,BUT please ensure the record player is on a perfectly flat surface the
needle wont work on any incline at all...

If you turn the amp on in the phono switch position and carefully hold the needle over the record and touch the needle with your finger you should get a scratchy sound from the speakers.....

This is a basic test to ensure the amplifier and all the wiring is in place and doing its job..
Im Sorry you had a run around from the repair company but some of them are not interested in repair work any more they just want to sell new hardware...
It pays to ask if they are Pepared to repair stuff for you , then get a commitment of a reasonable repair date and time in writing.

If this date and time is exceeded then you dont have to pay for the repairs do you??
As they have missed the service level agreement you had with them for the reapir date and time..

Hope this helps
From
YUBEUT..
