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.

Do I need to connect my older Fisher Turntable to a pre-amp before connecting to my Yamaha RX-V850?


No, you don't need a preamp if your turntable has a moving-magnet (MM) cartridge, it should work as-is! Happy vinyling =]

See page 27 of the manual:

How can I connect an analog turntable to my Pioneer VSX-D710S? Also, do I need a turntable with a built in pre-amp?


According to the specs there aren't any phono inputs which would have their own preamp. Everything else is line level so I'm pretty sure you'll need a preamp either between the turntable and one of the line level inputs or built into the turntable.

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 an older QL-45 turntable that needs tone arm adjustment- I don`t know how to set the weight so it doesn`t lower down to album so hard or heavily


I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

Make a note of the tracking force setting.


Make sure the turntable is level.


Unplug the power to the turntable.

Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.

Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.

Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.

Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.

Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.

Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.

Return the tonearm to its rest.

Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.

Need to adjust stylus pressure on my akai ap-a101 turntable


Not sure exactly with this one looked at a googled picture. The counter balance weight needs to come forward toward the stylus to increase weight and move back to decrease. there looks to be a thumb screw on the right of the counter weight turn anti clockwise slightly one of three things will happen either the weight will start to move down the arm, the screw will undo the weight will come loose and can be moved forward or back on the arm or not very much at all will happen at all.
Best to mark the position of the weight first so you can return it to its original position after you over adjust and cut your own grooves in you cherished vinyl only a small adjustment is required. failing that put a small piece of blu-tack on the top of the cartridge only joking.

Can i use a turntable with the sony str dh500 model? I am illiterate when it comes to hooking this stuff up. Planning to purchase this model only if I can hook up my record player as well as my cd player.


This particular unit only has 2 line level inputs for audio devices. You can use 1 for the CD player and the other for the Turntable. Please note that you will need a phono pre-amp for the turntable as the inputs on the receiver are line level. The preamp will amplify the phono level to line level.

How do I hook up a turntable


You may have two possibilities depending on the configuration of the turntable.
Your Denon should have inputs marked for 'Aux,' 'Line' and possibly, if it is built with the expectation of use with a turntable, 'Mag' or 'Magnetic.'
Your turntable may have a 'Line' output or only a shielded cable carrying a very small voltage from the magnetic head. I assume the pickup is magnetic and not crystal which has a much higher output level but also a higher impedance that requires a matching input.
You should have any of the above outputs in pairs and if the color coding conforms to current standards, there should be in- and outputs marked with red (right channel) and white (left channel).
I would first try connecting the turntable's leads to the 'Line' input since most later turntables have a small amplifier circuit built in that will take the signal from the pickup, amplify it, and match it to the levels and impedance of the line input on the Denon.
There isn't any danger of making a fatal mistake and you should hear right away if there is excessive distortion or a loudness even when the level is set to a low setting; this implies that the output from the turntable is higher than that input wants to see.

45 and 33 sound slow


Here's a procedure for setting the tonearm...

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable and place it on a perfectly level surface.

Set the Tracking Force and AntiSkating to 0.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter Clockwise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
If you don't have a Stylus Tracking Force Gauge. Dial in the prescribed tracking force and a corresponding anti-skate reading. Play records.

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.
