    Default Need help for my Philips 312

    I've got a Philips 312 (1976) with an Audio Technica DR500LC cartridge. It worked fine about a year ago, but now no sound unless I push down on the tone arm. Even then it's not much. I think I bought the cartridge about 10 years ago. I suspect the cartridge is shot, because the turn table is so basic. Any help appreciated.

    Make sure all your connections are clean, your stylus is not bent, and since you get sound when you add weight I'm guessing the stylus is shot. They're inexpensive to replace.
    That old Philips is a heckova good TT and deserves a better cartridge anyway.
    You'll have to spend some big bucks to outperform that old Philips. Do it justice and get a good cartridge for it.
