Hi Chrisso, two things to consider here - tracking force, that is the weight applied by the stylus on the vinyl and anti skate, which is the sideways force applied to the stylus to counteract the pull towards the turntable centre spindle. Can you get access to a stylus pressure gauge? The older, manual style are basically like a small set of plastic scales that measures the weight, more modern digital scales are available and not expensive. You need to set your tracking force as recommended by the manufacturer, but it may be in the region of from 1.5-2.5 grammes. Once you have set this, you need to set the anti skate to the same value, so will need to consult the manual for the turntable. What cartridge are you using please?
