Re: second hand decks
The unit should not be making any sounds like that. It sounds like the timing is off for the gearing underneath the platter. It may be as simple as cleaning the existing grease on the mechanism and re-lubing. The existing grease may have gummed up a bit not allowing the parts to move freely. Take of the bottom and look at the condition of the grease.

Sounds to me like the belt has snapped or slipped off. Lift the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helps
A metal tone arm has a ground wire that connects it to the back of the stereo via the Turntable chassis. If this wire is broken (inside the deck of the turntable) or the ground to the stereo is not done, you can have this issue. No, the ground through the audio connectors is not sufficient.
1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

do both of your numarks make the same sound? what is the weird sound? The magnet is 1 piece, so I am not sure if it has come loose - very hard to come loose. Check to see if there is any debris inside the magnet/coil area. Sometimes staples, small metal items get stuck to the platter. Just lift the platter off the turntable, to expose the coil and the magnet.
If all is clear, then you obviously have a more serious issue. However, you will have to be more detail in describing what kind of problem your having:
- Does your turntable power on?
- Does it sound weird when you press the play button or does it make a sound even when the platter is not rotating?
- This happening to both turntables?
- Did you buy these units new or used?
- If used, do you know the history of the turntables?
- Does it affect the speed or playing ability of the unit?
- Do you use the unit on the road? Move it around?
- Did this just start happening instantly, or was it something that just got louder over time?
I know it's a lot of questions, but I need as much information as possible to properly source the problem via this limited method.
