Help needed setting up Pro-Ject Debut III

Hey all,

So, I just recently acquired a Pro-Ject Debut III turntable. It's my first table and I am having a hard time setting it up. I followed the instructions here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MIK9WcSDtU. I did all of that to a T. The problem is that my vinyl always skips a few minutes in on any record back to somewhere towards the beginning. The surface it is on is level, I'm using brand new records that I cleaned with an anti-static brush and the tone arm isn't making contact with the tone arm rest either. I'm also using the stock cartridge that the guy at the store installed for me. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

At a guess....

I also bought a turntable already 'set up' by a seller. It sounded like crap and I blamed the records for a long time. Then I upgraded the cartridge and discovered the old one (set up) had every single setting wrong.

If I was you I would assume the cartridge is not set up right. I would find the best instructions I could find on line, buy a stylus gauge, and most importantly (for me it was), insure the azimuth is set right.

Thanks, JIMV

I will try that and see if that fixes the issue. Hopefully, that resolves this issue.
