    The music sounds "ringy" or "vibrate-y", as if every vocalist is a sheep. It'

Some things to check:-
Is anything preventing the turntable from rotating smoothly, this would cause a judder.
Perhaps the records are sliding on the turntable, a rubber mat will cure this.
Ensure the record player is on a level surface.

Testimonial: "I placed a rubber mat from an old turntable under the record and it's having the same problem. I have placed the machine on several different surfaces and experienced the same problem."

    From what you describe it does sound like a speed issue with the turntable.

  • freddyfox Dec 28, 2013

    I meant to add, have you checked that the stylus is seated correctly and there is no dirt on the tip. I assume that other functions like the CD etc sound OK?

    Can you try switching the turntable speed controll back and forth between 45 and 33 1/3 a few times, it may just seat the belt drive a little better, worth a try.

Record skipping despite new needle


It could be something to do with the turnatable's platter. Is the matt that the record sits on faulty. Does the platter wobble up and down with no record on it? If you can see this happening you might need to check the platter out. If it's a belt driven the belt can come out of position causing such problems. Also objects can get stuck inside the platter. Especially if you have small children in the house!!!

Toshiba VCR. It records OK but playback is black, white shaky


What do you mean by "records OK"? It sounds to me like you are not getting a signal to record. I had this problem before, as well. There are two things I recommend you try. The first is that (if you are trying to record over-the-air tv, you will need a digital television converter box connected directly to the vcr. If you already have one and are sure that it is connected correctly, you may also try an RF modulator. When I got my new vcr, it wouldn't work at first. I eventually found out that I would need an RF modulator in order for it to work on my tv. I hope these suggestions help. Good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

Logitech Quickcam Chat - No audio


Try testing it, last time I checked skype has a test section, its hard to find, but its there. You just talk into the mic and skype records it. Then play back.

It is possible the mic isn't working.

Before you consider taking it back, make sure you follow the instructions to the letter.
