Change the phono plugs reversing right/left. Does the working speaker change? If yes, problem is in turntable or cartridge. If no, problem is in your receiver.
If the problem is in the turntable or cartridge, pull the cartridge off. Is it directly plugged into the arm, or does it have 4 wires on it? If wires, swap right/left. Change in speaker? No? Problem in turntable wires. Yes? Replace cartridge.
If it's plugged directly into the arm, clean the connections with a pencil eraser (gently). Fixed? No? Try connecting turntable to a different receiver, comment.
What we're trying to do is to isolate where the problem is, so you know what to replace or fix.
According to the specs there aren't any phono inputs which would have their own preamp. Everything else is line level so I'm pretty sure you'll need a preamp either between the turntable and one of the line level inputs or built into the turntable.
I'm no expert, but based on the general idea of operation for a turntable, it sounds like the arm is getting bound up or being hindered in some way. If you pick the arm up and swing it back and forth manually, can you feel a place in the movement that seems to have some degree of resistance? You would want to move the arm very slowly and feel for even the slightest amount of resistance. It doesn't take much force to hold the arm from advancing. An ill positioned wire in the base of the arm could be the culprit or if the unit has an automated return home mechanism, there could be a problem there as well. Maybe working the arm back and forth manually several times to its fullest allowable extension, will help to eliminate the impediment. Do this caringly and without excessive force. I hope this helps.
Not sure exactly with this one looked at a googled picture. The counter balance weight needs to come forward toward the stylus to increase weight and move back to decrease. there looks to be a thumb screw on the right of the counter weight turn anti clockwise slightly one of three things will happen either the weight will start to move down the arm, the screw will undo the weight will come loose and can be moved forward or back on the arm or not very much at all will happen at all.
Best to mark the position of the weight first so you can return it to its original position after you over adjust and cut your own grooves in you cherished vinyl only a small adjustment is required. failing that put a small piece of blu-tack on the top of the cartridge only joking.
there may be a weight missing on the arm , look at the other one to see the parts on that arm and make sure they are exactly the same nothing missing , otherwise there may be something wrong with the armitures guide
try tape on a penny then put it on top of the arm and see if it still skips
If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...
Setting the Pre-amp Switch For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center (Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF” position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other high-level input on the amplifier (described later).
Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.
Setting the tracking force is an easy task. Try this method.
first thing to do with the tone arm sitting above its rest, rotate the weight on the end of the tone arm until the tone arm is balanced in the middle. neither up nor down, just right in the middle.
calibrate the numbered rotating collar on the weight so that 0 is exactly on the reference line on the tone arm.
then turn the weight and numbered collar together to the tracking force that you are seeking. Most moving magnet cartridges need at least 1.5grams of weight. Set it for 2 grams if you are unsure of what your is or needs.
adjust the anti skate dial(if you have one) to the same number as the tracking force you are using.
At this point you should be able to gently bounce the tone arm on your index finger(not above the record of course). This is about all there is to it.
