Start at 1 gram and work your way up. Depending on the cartridge, 1.5 to 3 grams should be sufficient. Don't make it too heavy...use as light a weight as will play and track record properly. After you have set the weight, set the anti-skate knob (or counterweight) to the same force.

Why has the part of the arm that holds the balance weight come adrift?


Unit may need a skating adjustment. If the needle still stakes across the record check to make sure the tone arm weight is at least 1.5 grams if good you may need a new stylus or needle. a stylus and a needle are the same thing. Larry

My stylus arm exerts 4 grams weight


Four grams seems a little much. I find it hard to believe Sony relied solely on an inaccessible spring for stylus pressure adjustment. Back in the day, we used to tape a coin on top of the back end of the tone arm to adjust pressure so it may be necessary to improvise

MY TONEARM ON MY TECHNICS 1200 SLIDES TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RECORD! DOES IT NEED TO BE REPLACED & HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?


No it's either the stylus or the pressure to the stylus is not enough. The weight at the end of the arm will increase the pressure on the stylus. Turn it up in slightly testing a record till the stylus tracks in the grooves. The trick is to get it so that it stays in the groove without creating a rumble sound. Remember though a worn stylus will not track at all.
Most cartridges track at 2 to 3 grams. If the Weight on the arm has numbers they will correspond to the weight in grams. If you have to raise it very high the stylus is too worn.

1210 tone arm won't stay down. When I unscrew the


Check the point where the arm piviots, maybe a screw has come loose. Depending on the type of cartridge it should track at 3 to 4 grams.

Hello when , I put the needle on the record it doesn't play and slides across


Two causes the stylus is worn, or there is not enough pressure being applied to the stylus. Most cartridges track at 2-3 grams. The weight at the end of the arm should be set around this figure and slowly moved higher till it tracks without sliding and without creating too much rumble in the sound. If you have to take the weight up high, then that's a good sign the stylus has gone. Or that the arm itself has a fault on it somewhere (when tried with a new stylus installed).

Need to know what settings the anti-skate and the counterwieght on the back of the tone arm should be set to. Also when pressing start tonearm will not move at all. Can still cue it manually...


The counterwieght should be set the tracking force for the cartridge/stylus fitted. These are expressed in grams. Typical about 2 to 3 grams. If the weight has numbers on it these will match the grams. There's no right setting for the skate. Should the stylus start to skate accross the record increase the force. Start low!

On the arm movement, has the arm moved before after pushing start taking it to a record? As many turntables just don't.

Turntalble stylus sliding.


The head-shell weight is clearly different and you would need to re-set the arm balance.

this is usually done from the back of the arm where the counter balance sits.

Cartridges have a STATED tracking force usually in grams.

Most arms are roughly calibrated to weight but not always.
