Question about Stanton Audio Players & Recorders
Tried another headshell but can't see how it would push pins in arm back ?
Posted by Anonymous on
You mean the 4 pins are stuck or have you solderd the wires first, too slow and know the plastic they fit in is melted . case one: use some grease(made for this purpose) and take pin by pin and ten they need to move after a couple of times and come back at theit start position by the spring in it, second case ... too bad and if you haven't done a thing then it's like 80% of the problems here, caused by lack of maintenance. Technics which have 20 year old capacitors which are never changed and still use the same rca cable and then they they wat 500 euro for such a unit:) funny guys.

I can help with this issue. To keep the platter spinning in manual mode, you have to cue the tonearm up and move it so it is over the record. Then flip the lever to manual. It should stay on in this position. This is a feature and not a bug.
Regarding the audio / humming problem. The Duals had what was known as a muting circuit that engages as the turntable is cycling between rest and play. The fact that you are getting no sound may be an indication that the muting circuit is still engaged. Here are a few things you can try:
1. If the unit was recently shipped, you may need to reset the mechanical function of the turntable. You can do this by locking down the tonearm to the tonearm rest, turning on the power and then flipping the lever for a full automatic cycle. The tonearm will stay fixed to the rest, but the remainder of the mechanical system underneath will be reset to proper positioning (this is detailed in the Dual manual). Of course, this assumes that everthing was OK prior to shipping.
2. Make sure your cartridge is properly mounted with a good stylus, check your tonearm wires (both in the headshell and underneath the turntable and finally, see if you can get underneath the turntable while you run an automatic cycle to see what is going on.
Lastly, if you can't get it going, Check out Bill at www.fixmydual.com He worked on my 1019 and knows them inside and out.

I also own this turntable. The latest research I found on this unit is the needle is made by Crosley. This is the same brand that makes those nostalgic looking all in one audio products. If you can find who carries the Crosley replacement needles for those units it will fit the Ion turntable.

If it a PROPER head-shell the leads DO come off the pins at the rear of the cartridge.
Also if you are using EXTERNAL speaker it may be that the speaker leads are incorrectly wired to the speakers and that would simply be a matter of swapping the external speaker outputs over.
