Adeline Vinyl won't play...

Posted (edited)

I don't seem to be having much luck with my vinyls!

 

I ordered a Warning 7" vinyl from Adeline on 31st March. Marble green, too! So. It got caught up in Canada then was sent back. Then finally, it arrived here in England this morning. Went to play it and Warning won't play at all and Scumbag and Outsider play with a horrible screeching! Has anyone else had this issue?

 

EDIT: Just thought I'd say I am playing it at 45 RPM my others play fine.

Did you clean it before first playing it?

Yeah. When I play it the vinyl itself stops but the turntable will carry on spinning.

Ok, i'm confused as to the issue, the record becomes stuck on the needle and the table keeps spinning?

Also, some 7" records do play at 33 1/3 rpm. The only thing i can think of off the top of my head is that the needle's defective, unless you can play other records with it after you've tried this one?

Yeah. I tried 45 first then 33. On one side, the record will get stuck but i can see the turntable spinning. Other records play fine though - playing Dookie on it as I type

Huh, i've literally never seen this happen before, didn't know it could happen. Did you try taking it up with their customer service?

Try running a nail file or something round/inside the hole in the centre.  It sounds like it may be too tight on the spindle.

You think that could be it? How would I do this?

If the hole is too small it will grip onto the spindle, and not turn with the turntable. You just need to evenly enlarge the hole slightly.  There may still be a problem with the vinyl, but it should be loose, not tight on the turn table spindle.

I'll try it... how can I widen it?

I would use a ladies metal nail file, as it goes from narrow to wide, but something similar would do, a cone shaped filing tool, for metal or wood, as long as it will fit in the hole. You just need to scrape off a fine layer of vinyl from the hole edge.
