 I think skipping happens with the disc problem described above plus 
needles that are becoming worn, dirt in the tip and needle's that  are 
just a tiny bit out of line. I had a Worn needle in my SGT-250(14,900) 
that was causing a disc to ship evey few minutes(you could hear the arm 
move as it skipped)  I tried the same disc in a different player. It 
didnt skipp. I then repaced the neddle and the skipping stopped. I do 
think that putting the 14,900 needle, that is ment for the 100 series in 
a SGT-250(which takes the 15,4100) can make cause skipping. I dont know 
if there is a slight difference between the two.
