Volume setting is very high

Even at the lowest possible volume setting just after switching the turntable on it is nearly at maximum volume. Can this be fixed? Is it a manufacturing defect? Any suggestions?

That is unusual, and sounds like a manuf defect. If your unit is still under warranty, I would say send it in. If not, give them a call, and get a quote for repair. Unfortunately, due to the quality and value of these units, it will probably be cheaper to buy a new one.

My volume /power button turns all the way around instead of just clicking on and off and controlling volume. It won't flip the inside switch or whatever it does inside to turn it on.

The switch has to be replaced, pure and simple since the on /off part of it is bogus. If you want, you can bypass the on off switch part with a toggle switch and continue to use the pot since it is probably still good to adjust volume.

Too much bass

I didn't know that a turntable had bass control on it. If it has why not turn the bass down? I think it is your receiver not the turntable

Volume is too low even with Gain turned to maximum. Also talking during recording gets picked up on the recording.

Your computer sound controls govern input volume and the use of a microphone. If you have a mic, find the control and turn it OFF.

I have hooked my turntable up to my stereo and even at full volume its extreamly quiet, is there a problem or is this stereo just not set to play records? do i need some sort os amplifier?

Hi, Remove the rubber mat on the platter, there is a toggle-switch for the pre-amp. With the power off, manually rotate the platter and it will become visible through the gaps. This should resolve the low volume issue. Hope this helps. Post back with your results and good luck.

ION turntable volume is low when plugged into a receiver.

Either the cartridge has failed, or an internal amp in the record deck has, or despite what you say the receiver has. I will clarify this for you. Magnetic cartridges need a pre-amp before it gets amplified by the pre-amp and power amp of your reciever. If that pre-amp fails you will still hear the low sound from the deck, but all others cd/tape would be normal as they don't go into the deck pre-amp.
All you need to is trace the circuit. Find the magnetic cartridge pre-amp and find where it joins with the pre-amp of the amp! If you stick a screwdriver at that point, you will get a buzz at normal volume on each channel. The cartridge pre-amp has gone if you do get a buzz!
You probably find it's a single IC that's gone, some are prone to static problems.

Distorted sounds

The AT-PL120 uses a magnetic cartridge to extract a music signal from the record. Magnetic cartridges all put out a very weak electric signal, and so their output must be strengthened, or amplified, to where it is as strong as the input from, say, a CD player. This amplification is provided by a pre-amp. If your receiver has dedicated "phono" inputs the pre-amp circuits are already in the receiver. If you do not have dedicated phono inputs you must either buy a pre-amp, or buy a magnetic cartridge turntable with a pre-amp built into itself. The AT-PL120 has a built in pre-amp. You can switch the AT-PL120's preamp on or off. The switch is located under the platter at the back side of the turntable. Take the platter mat off and turn one of the platter's holes to the back and you should see the switch through the hole. If you push the switch to LINE OUT the preamp is turned on and the turntable sends an amplified cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to a receiver inout suitable for a CD player (a "high level" input). If you push the pre-amp selector switch to PHONO OUT the turntable sends the weak unstrengthened cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to the receiver's dedicated PHONO inputs so the signal can be amplified with the receiver's own pre-amp circuits.

If everything is set wrong (i.e. LINE OUT (pre-amp on), and connected to phono inputs) you are applying two steps of strengthening to the turntable's signal which is too much. The resultant sound will be garbled. Try not to do this!

The other way to do everything wrong is set the pre-amp switch to PHONO OUT (pre-amp off) and connect the turntable's cables to a high level input. If this happens the turntable signal receives no amplification and the resultant sound will be thin and weak.

Volume is low on my turntable

You have to amplify the output from your turntable output to the input of your amplifier. To do this you can buy what is known as a pre-amp. Radio shack probably still sells them.
Be sure to ground your turntable to your amplifier and not the pre-amp. This should stop any hum or at least diminish it. Bear in mind that your records will not sound as loud as your CD's. Hope this helps.
