Sorry it could be the cartridge! They can fail at anytime, only the stylus will wear with time. However it could be the amplifer's magnetic cartridge pre-amp. If you look inside your amp and trace back from the phono socket you should find the pre-amp. If it is distorting on both channels it's probably an IC that has failed.

I have a LP60 USB and theres a burning smell coming from the platter?


You mean while playing a record?.... I shall tell you a secret, eveytime you needle plays a record, it melts the vinyl a bit , just like that you can ice skate and melt the ice through the pressure.
But if you smell your vinyl then your needle is installed very wrong.
And needs to be replaced.

Pls read this http://www.whathifi.com/how-to/how-to-set-turntable.

if you smell your platter, without playing a song , you have to watch if. it spins at normal speed without variation, then you can remove the platter and give your bearing one drup oil. But that ain't the problem.

you have to smell the motorunit, since it's a cheap turntable and ain't having good components, but start with following that link i gave you and you only have a motor with some electronics , a belt
and a bearing with a platter and in your case a builtin usb and phono-amplifier which are useless, because the quality is way too low. not much can go broke.

Needle jumps on all new vinyl, but plays old records fine. New vinyl plays on other turntables without a problem. Do you have any suggestions?


Adjust the balance force up. This is a counterweight on the back of the arm. For most needles it is 1-2 grams.

ION Profile LP Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable, tone arm won't drop


I've got the same problem. When you put therecord on, spin it from the centre, and it will release the mechanism inside,this is what I do, and it works fine. I think the problem is that there are twoplates under the turntable, and there was grease between them, after a few goesthe grease disappears, causing the problem.

Jensen JTA 450 turntable skips?


Try moving the arm up to the end of the vinyl, if it does go till the end of the vinyl then try adjusting your counter weights, a penny will do, if it doesn't go till the end of your vinyl then there's a mechanical problem check any obstruction at the botton of your arm.

Digitech turntable - skipping stylus and arm


You might need to apply more pressure to the stylus. There should be a weight on the end of the arm, it should have a control to move it up and down. The only other thing is the stylus damaged from transit?

Arm does not track properly but skips across records


Just guessing, but it sounds like you haven't counterbalanced your tone arm.  When a tone arm skips, it's usually because there's too much counter weight on the rear of the tone arm.  You want between 3-5 grams, but first you have to calibrate your tone arm (balance it so you know where zero is).  If you don't know how to do this, refer to the Ion directions called "Tonearm Setup" in the instructions.
