RE: Stylus jumps at beginning of 12 inch record

I wonder if the auto setting can be adjusted to set the arm down a little farther inward on the record. It might be setting down on the raised edge of the record and then sliding down the edge and skipping inwards. I have the same problem with my manual tonearm if I set it down on the raised edge of the record.

Another thing that might help is antiskating. Check the antiskating adjustment to make sure it is set correctly.

Still another thing that might help is cleaning the rubber surface that lifts the tonearm, assuming it has that kind of tonearm lift mechanism. Make sure it is very clean and then apply some automotive belt dressing to the rubber surface to make it stick to the arm. I had a similar problem with an SME tonearm but when I applied automotive belt dressing to the rubber surface of the arm lift, it solved the problem.

Good luck,
John Elison
