Question about ION Audio iTTUSB Turntable

1 Answer

Sme problem but more

The morot spindel turns turns while there is power to it. I don't have a clue how to turn that off. There is no on or off switch only a stop switch which when pressed does no release the platter to reset to turn with out shutting down the the whole system and disassembling to reset manualy. The instructions manual I have doesn't give much trouble shooting information on the operation of reguler play, just on software trouble shooting in 5 different languages. I may have gotton a bad unit and am have troubles,

I do not quite understand your description. However, the motor switch is underneath the deck and is very sensitive to adjust if you have to.

Try starting from scratch with no record on the turntable, the protector over the stylus. and the arm lifted with the cue button. The motor should not be running.

Gently move the arm towards the platter. The motor should start up.

Continue gently moving the arm across the platter slowly until you hear a slight clicking noise.

The arm should try to lift (it's already up) and return to the rest - it will stay up, of course.

After one more rotation of the platter the motor then switches off, or is supposed to at least, by a cam under the platter. You should hear the click as it does so.

It is all a matter of adjustment, and any knocks or bangs the deck may have had may have changed the set-up.

The STOP button you mention is so that you can start the arm lift- and -return cycle at any point on the record. It is not a switch.

Hi i would lick to send my tone arm and base off to be anodised they have asked me what metal it is made of can you please tell me also the pop up light shell.thanks

They are asking this because anodising is especially suited to aluminium alloys, but not to steel.

Anodising can be done in various colours and finishes. Steel can be chrome plated, shiny or dull, and also plated with other coloured finishes such as cadmium.

The tone arm in this photo of the SL-1200Mk2 looks to be chromed, which means it is steel. To find out use a small magnet at the midway point to see if an attraction can be felt.

Platter not turning

You need to find out if the motor can receive power. Most turntables will have a switch or more than one, for instance a power switch. An ohm meter across it's terminals will tell you if the switch connects. To gain access to the switches you will have to remove the bottom of the deck. There could be another switch that comes into play if the platter starts turning if your deck is the type that activates when you move the arm towards the record. Some of these switches are micro switches with parts that can bend out of place, or be broken. Other times it's the leavers that push on the switch that either are bend or fail to make contact with the switch. Lastly check the motor itself, or the power supply to it. If the motor is 12 volts or under a 9 volt battery across it's terminals should make it move. If it doesn't move with the battery it could be faulty. If you test with a battery make certain the mains is not connected. If it moves with the battery it will be the power supply to the motor that's the problem.

Stanton str-150 - poor sound from left deck

Just make sure all your connections are clean , your tt in horizontal and take a new record, set the azimututh/anti-skate right , use the channel of the deck which works correct if it doesn't you have to measure the voltage coming from the cable, since i don't believe it's the mixer. But pls describe a poor sound, that doesn't say a lot. My tables often make a poor crappy sound , with channels falling out, but that's due to dust on the vinyl and stylus(needle) or a poor connection with my sme connector and then i clean both. Does is crackle and move the rca cable when you're playing, often is that stuck , but if it's on both channels , which sometimes is hard to hear in a little room. It can't be the mixer, cause i told you to test it on the other, good soudinding mixer input. So then it can be your groundwire, There ain't much more. Good tonar, clean sme connector, clean record(take the needle from the right working table). Check if the pins in the sme connector move smoothly.

It won't turn

If the platter doesn't spin then check the belt has not fallen off. It will be seen in a hole under the turntable matt.

Stanton st150 spindle

Yes that's normal since the spindle leans of a thin metal plate , which you simetimes had to lubricate. Check if one ain't pushed don a bit (remove backplate of motor cap in the unit, four screws and lubricate it with thinker paste, since it has no storage zone, the same fault that technics has. And hit the plate it the middle, if it ain't flat anymore( not to hard to begin with and stop when it's flat. Push against the spindel and check that everything moves free.then check the tiny imbuss that keep the inning wheel at its's place , if you had easy movement, then it was loose , soo screw it a bit loose , hold the spindle from above and push it straight up and tied in thisosition. check if everything i s free again and close everything and screw it together, But a bit height differences doesn' t matter, why would it?as long everything runs free, they need to have space, so after these checks and lubriication which you have to do allways once a year at least and heavy stratcher more, but they din't use stantonJust relax

My 1210 mk3's keep's popping the internal fuse?

Sounds to me like the capacitor across the motor needs replacing. On the + and - on a motor is a capacitor. This might be the problem, replace it as it should not be too expensive, you can never tell. Some times they are a few pence other time they are a few pounds. Why I don't know. If it's a common one, a few pence if it's a rare one, pounds....... I hope this helps.

Don't run it again until it is fixed or the increased voltage will blow other components. Cheers John.

Technic SL1200 M3D

1) This turntable either has bad RCA cables or a faulty tonearm - in either case, none are easy fixes. FYI, If you use Ortofon Concorde series, they are notorious for causing faulty connections with your tonearm, and eventually deteriorate your tonearm over time. So you might want to think about changing them if you get a new tonearm put on. If you use the Technics headshell, you are fine. 2) This turntable definitely needs to have the tonearm replaced. Once the arm comes loose from it's bearings, it's next to impossible to get it back to factory specs, and you will have skipping issues. Both will require professional servicing. Check out if your in the NYC area.
