Any way to solve this problem? I have a record that is popped, so that when you hold the edges you can pop the centre in and out. It plays fine on the convex side, but the needle skips down the concave side. Anyone know what I mean? I've tried flattening it, but I don't want to put too much weight on the LP.

you could try putting it between 2 pieces of glass and putting it in the oven. Do a search online for the correct directions on how to go about doing this.

no, I can't imagine a popped vinyl. The hole in the middle is too small. Maybe a special 7"-Vinyl with a big hole in the middle can be popped.

Maybe I'm not explaining quite what I mean properly. This is a 12 inch, and if you hold the edges you can push the middle in and out, with a kind of clicking sound.

Me neither, but I do understand what you mean.

another thing i have run into is sometimes the hole in the center is a bit tight and you have to tug a bit on the vinyl to get it off the turntable which can lead to a slight warp. any 'vinyl safe' ways to get it off?

I've seen this too often, but have never come up with a way to fix it.

If I notice the hole is too tight (if I need to use any amount of force to put it on the turntable) I take a knife and carefully scrape the inside of the hole to enlarge it.

I have done it twice to fix vinyl. Worked great.

thats not a bad idea, should have thought of that. though it might be better to take a drill bit and give a few turns by hand in the hole

That's exactly what I do. I have one blade that works perfectly that I keep right by my turntable. I experience this quite often actually.
