The trick on the talking Joes is to be sure they are clean, both the ribbon record, and the needle, be sure there is a bit of vasoline on the sprockets, and where the needle touches the speaker cone, and always hold the Joe horizontally, pulling the string straight down.

The metal needle may need to be changed or at least cleaned, and if you can't find a replacement 78RPM needle, then try sharpening the one you have. A bunt end will not sound as good a a sharp end.
