The following trouble checks will help you correct most common
problems encountered with a turntable system. Should any pro­
blem persist after you have made these checks, consult your

nearest Sony service facility.
Before proceeding with these trouble checks, first refer to the con­
nections and the operating procedures on page 6.

Impaired tone quality
• Improper tracking force. See “Tonearm adjustment” on page 4.
• Dusty stylus.
• The turntable is not placed on a level surface.
• The turntable is incorrectly placed on or too near a speaker.
• Worn stylus or defective record. (The stylus life is approximately
400 hours of playing time.)

• incorrect stylus installation.
• Improper tonearm balance.
• Improper setting of the anti-skating compensator.

• Loose connection of phono cord.

Loud rumble or low-frequency howl *
• The turntable is affected by external vibration.
• The turntable is too near a speaker.

*This is called “acoustic feedback' and is caused when vibrations from the

speakers are transmitted through the air or via solid objects (such as the
shelves, the cabinet, the floor, etc.) to the turntable, where it is picked up by
the stylus, amplified and reproduced through the speakers once again.

Design and specifications subject to change without notice.

♦ This new measuring method concerns only the turntable assembly, in­

cluding the platter. It excludes wow and flutter caused by the tonearm, the
cartridge, or the record. Measured by obtaining signal from magnetic pick­
up head.
