All my vinyls sound warped and keep skipping! Watch

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about record players and what might be wrong with mine? I have a Murphy TCD-68 retro...not very top-of-the-range at ALL, but it does the job...or at least it did, until a couple of weeks ago...now when I play ANY record, including brand new ones, it makes them sound slightly warped and keeps skipping. I don't *think* its the needle, there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with it, and even if there is I'm not sure if a problem with the needle would actually cause the warped sound and skipping? Might be wrong though.

    I've done a bit of online research and it seems what I need to do is to adjust the counter weight and the anti-skip...however all of the diagrams/videos I have come across relate to different models of record player...and from what I can tell, mine doesn't seem to HAVE a counter weight or an anti-skip dial...which is confusing because I thought it was pretty standard for record players to have a counter weight (if not an anti skip!)...:/

    So, on the offchance that there is a vinyl expert lurking around in these forums...help and advice please?
