Record player turn table and needle not communicating


1. Check that the cartridge is fitted to the arm properly because if there is a bad connection you will get no sound.

2. If properly fitted to the arm there may be a problem with the cartridge the stylus is mounted in. You basically have to trace it back from there.


Most of the new lower end turn tables I have seen on the market are pretty shoddy and if people are having problems with them I am not surprised. You pay big dollars for a good turn table now like the Thorens. If you want a good turn table that will last a lifetime and be 100% reliable with excellent sound that is what you need to buy.

How do I get the record player to have sound I got it to turn on but when I put the needle on the record there is no sound


Do you have the turn table plugged into a receiver or amplifier? Unless it is self-amplifying, that's what you need to do.

Why does my crosley turntable not turn when I put the needle down on the record


If you manually put the needle on the record, you still have to push the power on button. If you are using the auto on and the turn table isn't turning, either the band from motor to turn table broke (or came off) or the motor for turn table stopped working. All this is as long as there is power to the unit.

I have an electro brand 9249 record player. How do I remove the needle and where do I get a new needle


Hello
The needle and cartridge can be bought from most of the standard electronic sparepart selleing shops at your town. It will be best to replace the cartridge along with needle. Cartridge will have a number printed on it, should be noted. OK.

Broken needle on thorens TD 158 turn table.


Needle is a term used with 'record players' from the 60's. A turntable has a Phono Cartridge with a stylus. Depending on the brand / model of said cartridge the stylus may be replaceable. The cartridge certainly is. The tonearm is a delicate precision mechanism that will last lifetime if handled properly.

If you don't understand any of this I discourage you from taking any further actions without a knowledgeable mentor / technician looking over your ahoulder.

Belt on recordplayer (turntable)


Look at websites that sell Dj equipment.......search for places that sell technics turntables for DJs......and make sure they also have belt driven models like stanton turntables......if they do, then they might have the belt that you need. if they don't then they can probably order it for you or know where you can get the belt from!

if you wind up getting a new turntable, go with a direct drive model....they don;t have that problem as there are no belts!

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..
