Question Service info. for Goldring Lenco GL75 record deck

In particular I'm looking for detailed instructions as to how to correctly balance and set the stylus pressure of the pickup arm. The GL75 is fitted with Goldring's own cartridge - no model name or number visible on said cartridge.

It'll probably have either a G850 (red stylus) or G800 (grey with white stylus) magnetic cartridge fitted.

The manual is available from the usual suspects, which includes the table mentioned in The Dentist's clipping. A trip to Lenco Heaven will also pay dividends if you get stuck. My GL59 and L75 agree!

You mean the poor old OP can't get it from Hifi-Engine? It's on Elektrotanya and Lenco Heaven has a big old page of manuals.

Useful to know, thank you.

The full instructions also contain details for setting up the antiskating/bias too.

Nick.

Sorry, UB, I didn't think of either Vinyl Engine or Lenco Heaven, but, since posting I've found service info on VE, and will check the Lenco Heaven site. Techman, the stylus is Red, so the cart. is then most likely a G850.

Yes, the G850 is the better of the two cartridges. The G800 was supposed to be better and was more expensive at the time, but was disappointing as regards its performance when compared to the G850.
