Tone Arm Skips / Turntable turns unevenly

1) The tone arm seems too lightweight and skips and skates over my records.

2) The turntable does not spin at an even rate. I am not referring to pitch control. I can clearly hear that the record is not playing evenly.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

sounds as if your anti skate needs adjustment, it should be almost the same as the counter weight adjustment , Also your belt should be replaced or if you have a direct drive it may be the motor speed adjustment or motor is malfunctioning there are manuals available on line

Thank you for your response regarding the JTA-230 Turntable. There are just too many problems with this product that should not occur with a NEW out-of-the-box product. I had high expectations for this product based on the customer comments on Amazon as well as the price. Unfortunately, I will be returning it. Perhaps there is a better product out there.

Sometime you need to clean and check or replace your needle with a new one. Built up dust on the needle or stylus can can this. Or it may need the needle or stylus replaced.
