Register (free) at Vinyl Engine and download the service manual. The adjustment you need to do seems fairly simple. You will need a turntable strobe disk to get the the speed right, unless you have perfect pitch.
either you haven't earthed the deck to the amp, on the proper ground screw, or your head shell wires are touching.
if the cartage(the thing the needle slots into) unscrews from the tone-arm, try unscrewing it,then putting back on, nice & tight....
if it still does it then it's your RCA leads that go from the deck to the amp(phono cables).
normally you would wire a deck/decks to a mixer first, then from the master out on the mixer to the AUX IN on the amp.

1. Remove the rubber disc from the metal platter.
2. Remove the metal platter by pulling straight up.
3. Ignore the player for the moment; focus on the platter.
4. On the underside of the platter is a circle about 2 inches smaller than the platter; stretch the belt around that inner circle. Make sure it is not twisted. 5. Put the platter back on the player. Rotate the platter so that one of the rectangular holes reveals the drive wheel.
6. Stretch the belt so that it goes around the drive wheel (I used a pencil but tweezers would likely work well).
7. Replace the rubber disc.
• The drive belt is fitted under the platter. When assembling the
player, please handle the drive belt with care.
• Remove all packing materials attached to the tone arm, except
that on the stylus, and then open the dust cover and assemble.
Remove the stylus cover after assembling.
Hold the platter by the holes at its outer surface, and
then carefully lower the platter so that the center
spindle enters the center hole.
Rotate the platter until one of its outer openings is
aligned with the driving roller. (Refer to illustration.)
Gently grasp and pull at the ribbon tape of the drive
belt that is would under the turntable, and then
extend the belt around the driving roller. (After
attaching, remove the ribbon tape.)
In order to make sure that the drive belt has been
correctly fitted, slowly rotate the platter 3 or 4 turns.
Place the rubber mat on the platter.
IMPORTANT! Please Check.
Check that the drive belt and ribbon tape have been attached
under the platter. Grasp the ribbon tape as shown in the
illustration to the left, and extend it onto the driving roller.
