Cannot locate a replacement needle without a make. Can you help? I have the number on the needle being T50HD. Is it ceramic or magnetic? I also need a manual. Thank you

The make is probably printed on the cartridge rather than the stylus but it could well be this one (ceramic)
Personally I prefer to change the whole cartridge rather than just the stylus for better sound quality. At least replace the cartridge every 2nd or 3rd needle change -
You don't specify the make of equipment you need a manual for but the best place will be the support pages of the website of the original manufacturer. If you need a manual for a record-player cartridge they usually come in the box.

The sound on one of the channels comes out really low. Could you tell me what could I be doing wrong?????

It could be something simple or something complex.

On the simple front:
Try unplugging and re-seating the cables from the turntable to the amp.
Try swapping left and right at the amp -- did the "weak" channel change or is it still in the same speaker?
Now swap the channels back at the amp and swap them at the turntable end of the cable -- did the "weak channel" change this time?

If the "weak" channel changed each time you swapped, then the problem is within the turntable, not the amp or the cables.

The next simple thing to check is the stylus (needle) -- look at the stylus up close. The needle should be going straight in to the groove on the record, not leaning to one side or the other.

If you're up for it, remove the stylus and re-install it. If you have access to one, try replacing the stylus.

If the weak channel is still weak with another stylus, then you have to start looking inside the turntable's electronics, and that's when it stops being simple.

If this helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me.

If it's not fixed yet, post back a comment and we'll see what we can do.
