Question about Numark Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Numark TT 1650 turntable where the counter weight has broken off of the tone arm. Is there a way to remove the counter weight from the tone arm part that has broken off so that I can try and Super Glue the tone arm part back on? If that's not advisable, how can I remove the tone arm from the turntable in order to replace it with a new tonearm and counter weight? I'm not finding schematics on the Internet so any help is appreciated. Thanks! Tracy

The PCL-30 does not look like a standard headshell. I doubt the above answer is correct.

Unfortunately, the only way to access the tonearm is through the bottom. It's not that difficult, but you should be very careful when placing your turntable upside down to remove the base.

Hope this helps some.

SOURCE: Tone arm skipping/not moving on especially at end of record

The issue is with your tonearm, and not your tracking. You probably have slight damage to the tonearm bearings, which will cause this. There are 2 options... you can try to adjust the pivoting screw at the top of the tonearm ... However, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS, because once you mess with this screw, it's EXTREMELY difficult to get it back to the correct setting, as this screw is machine calibrated at the factory. So, we only recommend this when you have no other choice, or it's an emergency (the middle of a set).

You can view a video on how to do this, by going here - http://djprolab.com

Eventually, your going to have to have your Technics Tonearm replaced. This should be done by a professional, as it is not an easy replacement.

SOURCE: Tonearm Weight, Good Replacement Stylus, Gain level

Most good turntables will track with weights between 1.25 and 1.5 grams. Any more than that and you are putting alot of pressure on the needle. Experiment a bit and make sure that the needle tracks well and that the sound is good. The less weight you use, the longer the needle will last and the less wear on the record.

Try moving the tone arm lever to raise the arm, if it has one.(MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RELEASED THE ARM CLIP!) Then with the arm raised move the arm over towards the platter. If platter still doesn't rotate, and its a belt drive, A. The belt is bad. or B. The belt has come off the platter or motor pulley.

Hello, so for some reason the needle is sliding down the vinyl towards the center every time we go to play it. it just slides across! makes no sense, the needle is not broken and we have been trying to...

needles never seem to look broken But a tiny chip on them will make the player do exactly what your describing, as far as the counter weights,, spin the player by hand , click the handle to make the arm begin to position itself at the beginning of the record, Now, before it drops, slow down the hand spinning, and set the weight so that when the arm is supposed to drop it doesn't,, in other words balance it to be level, No up or down motion, without a weight scale to do this by the book, try this , Its always worked for me, tape 2 pennies to the weight at the rear of the arm, and one penny to the head of the arm, again, adjust it to be level,, then remove all the pennies,, the arm will have about the correct weight they require for the needle to be correct,, if it still slides, you have a bad needle

Tone Arm acting as arial

A metal tone arm has a ground wire that connects it to the back of the stereo via the Turntable chassis. If this wire is broken (inside the deck of the turntable) or the ground to the stereo is not done, you can have this issue. No, the ground through the audio connectors is not sufficient.

Record keeps skipping arm won't move toward center of record

Sounds like your arm is tracking too light. To proper set the tracking weight on most units you need to zero the arms balance so that it is balanced just at the surface of the record. Once that is done using the weight on the back of the tone arm, or whatever system your unit uses, there should be an adjustment by turning the weight on the arm or perhaps a lever near it. You owners manual should really explain all this and give the recommended tracking weight in grams and fractions of grams. Each weight is different for different styli. Take a look at your operation manual and adjust the weight. Let me know how you make out.

One of my numark turntables tt 500 the left channel does not work. i only hear the music on 1 speaker. doe you know what to do?

Swap the channel cables from the turntable left to right to see if it follows a channel from the turntable or the same speaker is dead. If it swaps with the cable, then look for a break in the wire to the pickup on the tone arm. If the dead speaker remains the same, you have a problem in that side of the amp or the phono preamp.

You need to adjust the downward force by adjusting the counter weight which is on the back of the tone arm. Rotate it so it's closer to the tone arm fulcrum to increase the weight on the arm, like tightening a nut on a bolt.
