 What to do when replacing your stylus:  

 

Best is to come into our store with your turntable (we have a parking lot right behind our building) so we can install the needle and test your turntable on our service bench at no charge!*

    

When calling us, please have the brand and model number of the cartridge so we can look it up. If there is a needle number, that would help too. If you can not find the brand and cartridge number, sometimes we can go by the turntable brand and model number but can not guarantee exact replacement in either case. We do not refund cartridge and stylus purchases.

    

If you can not bring in your turntable.  Safely uninstall the stylus or headshell and transport it to us with care, we have a better chance of replacing your stylus with the exact model.

Most belts can be installed while you wait and labor is free of charge in most installations. At very rare times there may be a charge. We have the right to refuse service on any turntable brought to us.  Please call first before bringing in your table to discuss your repair. Please have brand and model number handy when calling. Thank you.

INSTRUCTION TO REPLACE CROSLEY MAGNETIC AND CERAMIC CARTRIDGES

  

This instruction sheet is to help you be able to replace cartridges in most of these newer phonographs being produced. Crosley, Ion, and Pyle use similar mounting arrangements for their cartridges. When changing needles it has become necessary to replace the cartridges on some of these models as well. Many times the needles will not fit properly or stay on. By changing the cartridges to Pfanstiehl models you are assured of a proper fit every time. This also helps if the cartridges are damaged or defective. To replace ceramic models calling for NP-1 or NP-6 model needles (793-D7, 793-D7M) carefully raise tonearm, with thumb push up tab in front of cartridge while holding headshell in opposite hand allowing cartridge to fall freely from the clip. Slide the four wire clips from the rear of the cartridge and remove. Carefully slide red and white wires back onto top lugs of new cartridge and push double black ground lugs onto two bottom terminals of the cartridge. Position back nub on cartridge into rear slot on the head-shell and lift cartridge to snap into front of head-shell clip.

  

The cartridge used is P-188D for this model. For the older Stack-O-Matic units use P-189D cartridge with NS-1(904-D7) needle or P-188D can be used instead. All later versions use this cartridge. To replace magnetic cartridge that uses NP-4 and NP-7 needles (901-D7) carefully raise the pickup head. Use a small screwdriver to pry front of cartridge from clip in the head-shell. Cartridge should pull free from the clips swinging down in front first then pull away from the back clip. Usually a small amount of epoxy is used to hold these cartridges in. Remove the four wire clips from the back of cartridge
lugs noting which terminal they came off of. The MG-09D-LB can be used as the replacement for this cartridge. Slide on the wire clips on the back of the cartridge. Position the back of the cartridge so it fits into the back clip of the head-shell. Swing the front of the cartridge back into position and carefully snap the front of the cartridge body into the front clip. A small amount of glue or epoxy may be used to keep it in place but is not necessary. You are assured now that the current 901-D7 needles will fit this Pfanstiehl cartridge.
