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.

The PCL-30 does not look like a standard headshell. I doubt the above answer is correct.

SOURCE: Dual 1009. No audio from the stylus & humming.

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.

Good Luck,

Jerry

SOURCE: Need a cartridge stylus with headshell

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.

Dear Sirs My Memorex 2650MMO Turntable


Perhaps you have a broken wire in the headshell, or just a bad connection. Try removing the headshell to examine, if there's no break, try cleaning the contact pins that mate the headshell to arm connections.

I have a Thorens TD115. The left channel doesn't


HELLO
I am basing my findings on my THORENS TD166 MK2.
First thing you have to do here is check the wiring from the headshell to the RCA phono leads - for this you need a multi-meter set on continuity.
Disconnect the cartridge and put one meter probe on one of the headshell wires and the other to the centre pins and outer rim of the RCA plugs. One headshell wire should read fine on one part of the plug as it will correspond with ONE part only of the RCA plug. When you have checked all wiring and you get a continuity check (OK) then you must look to the cartridge.
However, if you get a reading of ONE headshell wire reading more than one part of an RCA plug then you may have an internal wiring problem in the deck.
Here is something that might help:
HEADSHELL:
RED - to centre pin of right output plug GREEN - to outer metal rim of right output plug WHITE - to centre pin of left output plug BLUE - to outer metal rim of left output plug In some cases this wire may be black
Just to recap, if these readings are OK - the cartridge may be at fault.
I wish you well with it!!! (:-)

Can i purchase a needle for the ION ITTUSB ?


Yes but it is not the needle you would buy (ah in the old days it was a needle) but a cartridge

The user manual available here gives you a little more detail.

It is sometimes possible to get the needle assembly for the more expesive cartridges but yoy would need to know the cartridge make and model for that.

If you unscrew the headshell locking ring on the tone arm you can remove the cartridge by pulling it out (hold the arm and the headshell doing this)

This would give you a better idea of the cartridge make and model and also allow you to see how it is mounted (2 screws) to the headshell.

It sounds as if the cartridge has been dislodged on the end of the tone arm Have you tried setting up the cartridge alignment. A badly aligned cartridge will cause exactly this problem.

Intermitant channel down


Hey, I'm having the same problem. I found this with a little help from a small site I found called Google:

http://www.divdev.fsnet.co.uk/repair3.htm

Here's what he suggests. I have no clue what it means but I'm sure that it cane be decoded with some manuals:


Technics SL1210 , 1979 ?
Intermittent loss of one channel.
The headshell was slightly loose on the tonearm
and moving inwards would cause loss of one channel.
To remove this arm undo the slotted lock ring at the very top
of the arm pivot and undo the central pin. The arm
with jiggling can then be removed assuming enough slack in
the signal wires. Undoing the 2 watchmakers screws near
the headshell allows removal of the 4 pin connector.
Presumably the wires inside the tone arm at this connector
could touch the inside of the tonearm and lead to
break in sprung connection. Placed a bit of brass shim
in the slack area and pushed back in to wedge tight.
Also removed the soft washer on the plug shaft of the headshell.

Check to make sure you have a nice solid connection on your tonearm from your cartridge. The problem is either your tonearm or your RCA (red/white) cables.

Neither are easy repairs, unless you have soldering skills/experience. The tonearm replacement is the more difficult and more costly of the two.

Parts for the unit can be purchased HERE. If you have any questions about testing your unit on the exact cause, please feel free to give our TECHS a call - they are available 24/7 for your convenience @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1

Sound problem


first thing to do is take the left and put in in the right, do you get sound on the right?
now take the phono cartridge wires and move the left to the right and right to the left does the sound move or stay same place. if they move with or not tells you if the cartridge is bad or phono plugs. if they dont move it's the phono plugs if the does move it's the cart.
