Unless it's second hand you should take it back to where you got it from. If it is second hand, then it will be hard to track it down. My guess would be either a faulty IC in the pre-amp stage. But it could just be a dry joint on the solder, since it's been moved.

SOURCE: My SounDesign Player Turntable System

Try to lift the table (it might have a "c" clip lock in the center) and check the belt or idler tire on the bottom of the table.

You don't say whether your turtable is grounded by a separate wire but in some cases grounding is necessary to eliminate hum.

Blown speaker


Swap the speakers around to make certain it's the amp that causing the problem. Since stereo amps are two mono amps put together you have one good channel to compare the other one with. Sometimes a visual inspection will show what's wrong with it.

Erratic volume from new turntable thru used amp


First detirmine if it is only the turntable that is causing this problem, by connecting something else to another terminal. If that works fine it will be the cartridge preamp that is causing the problem. From what you describe it sounds like an IC that is playing up.
If the other device plays up as well as the turntable, I still suspect an IC, but this time in the main pre-amp. The reason I suspect an IC is that by the sound of things both channels are playing up and therefore it has to be somepart that has both channels going in and out of it- thus IC!

I'm having problems with my Soundesign turn table... After finishing a record it auto-returned the stylus, and since then the turntable won't turn. I can't remove the platter, however I can lift it up...


I actually had the same problem with my soundesign. Really sucks that we can't remove the platter. However... I just jiggled mine for a while and it started working again. I know that doesn't sound like a real solution, but I would just try playing with it for a while. Mine worked after that..
Do you by chance have any idea how to get closer to the belt? Mine is having a speed problem and needs adjusting but obviously the platter is a ***** to take off.

Buzz coming from speakers on phono input


is the wire loose on either end? sometimes the electrical plugs can cause noise due to resistance, so trying different outlets might help too

My turntable has a crackling sound that makes the sound fade i & out . what could be the problem?


I assume you mean the output makes the crackling sound, not the turntable itself.

Is it only the turntable doing this? No other source? If yes, turn off your receiver and manually operate every function and control throughout its range and toggle every switch and button repeatedly to remove oxidation. The Tape Monitor control is famous for causing droputs even when it is OFF.

Listen carefully to the sound.

Is the sound dropping out or is the volume fluctuating?
Is the turntable tracking proerly or is it skipping, lifting off the platter?

Is it on both channels, one or random?

DE-select the phono on the receiver so the following is not passed through to the speakers.

Remove and reinstall the RCA phono plugs from your receiver using a twisting motion to remove oxidation. How is it now?
