The stylus could be as flat as a pancake. So will not fit into the grooves. If you unplug the wires to the cartridge and with the unit connected to your amp and that on power, touch with your finger each of the wires one at a time. You should hear a buzz one on the left and one on the right from two of the wires. If you do that shows that sound will get into your amp. If that's okay I would then buy a new stylus and cartridge. It doesn't have to be the same as the one you have. As long as it will fit on to the headshell.

My Philco 841205 Turntable spins normally, but


If this is a belt driven turntable then when the arm rests on the record the weight cause the belt to loose traction and slip around. The only cure is a new belt. Make a note of how the belt fits before removing as the biggest problem with belt turntables is knowing how the belt fits. When removed. Measure the diameter of the belt in MM and then the thickness. You won't need to be spot on with the diameter. Put the measurments into Google with the words turntable belt. Get the one that is nearest your measurements.

Platter not spinning


Some turntables only move when you move the arm to the record. If that doesn't work and you have read the set up instructions correctly, as it's new contact the maker or the place you purchased it from. I'm certain they will help.

The arm won't stay down, as soon as it sets down on the record it automatically stop and moves back to the resting spot.


If you have the automatic arm on you`res and you have to move the slidder control to make it work,don`t slide the control all the way.Just til you hear a click and then move the arm you`r self.Also make sure it is set to the size record you are trying to play.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed


1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.

or

2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.
