Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
I own a technics sl-dd33 turntable, and whenever i try to play a record, the stylus will not catch the grooves on the disc. it ends up sliding across toward the center and nearly scratches the record every time. i've adjusted the cueing bar to no effect, and there is no weight on the arm to be adjusted. is it just time to buy a new stylus? there doesnt seem to be anything visibly wrong with mine... any ideas?
'Skating' is usually due to very low stylus pressure, which can be adjusted using a counterweight.
Is this the picture of the turntable ?
Isn't that a counterweight at the back-end of the arm ? Can't it be rotated ?
If the counter weight is fixed, check the pickup mounting. May be it needs to be adjusted a bit forward (to increasing the stylus pressure).
