Most likely this is the switch that selects among cd/tape/radio/record player. it could be the preamp circuitry in the player as well. it would not be the cartridge UNLESS you cannot see a little rubber 'seat' up inside underneath the cartridge that pushes the stylus tip out and down towards the record just a bit. if this rubber 'yoke' (seat) is missing you will get no sound even when you touch the needle tip when the record player section is selected.

Scratchy sound on turntable with mat om


One of two things. The deck has got a static problem. Perhaps caused by an earth connection problem.
Or you have a bad earth connection on the cartridge.

Just switched my needle on an ION Profile LP but no sound will come out of my speakers.


Disconect the wires to the cartridge. With the amp on touch each wire one at a time with your finger. You should hear on Two wires a buzz- one for each channel. If you do then the cartridge has failed. If you don't then there's either a bad connection to your amp, or the magnetic cartridge pre-amp inside the amp has failed. This will not effect any other part of the amp.

I just bought a replacement needle for a Crosley CR66 4 in 1 record player and now my records sound distorted and far away


It might be that you have caused an earth wire to the cartridge to come off or loose. Check the connections to the cartridge.

Well im not too sure if my needle is broken but when i play a record i cannot hear sound and it sounds like my record is being scratched. Do i need to keep the white cap on the needle or not? or is it just...


It's called a stylus. What red or white caps are we talking about? Some phono cartridges come with stylus guards that flip up out of the way for play or down to protect the stylus from damage while in storage or during tonearm balancing. The stylus needs to touch the record groove directly.

Turntable starts playing record middle 1st song


The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?

Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

Those are just standard phonograph player characteristics in my experience. You'll hear a tap on the deck because there's essentially a live mic ( the needle ) physically coupled with the record on the turntable and the rest of the phonograph player even though they try to dampen the coupling of the turntable as much as possible. The rumbling noise at high gain is because the turntables being driven by a motor via gears or a belt and creates some  vibration, wich is transmitted through the turntable and picked up by the transducer ( needle ), low frequency rumble, just like a recording studio on a busy street may pick up from road vibration/ noise.
