Re: BaD SouND

Do you have the unit in Turntable mode? Can you describe the distorted sound? Is it a hum, sound cuts in/out, scratchy sound? There have been alot of issues which plagued this unit. We get at least 1-2 a week in here for various issues. Although, I've never had one with distorted sound, that wasn't caused by something else (bad RCA cables, faulty mixer line, etc).

So make sure it is the unit. If so, you will need to take this in to a qualified service center for repair as determining the issue requires the tech run some test on the unit.

Scratchy sound on turntable with mat om

One of two things. The deck has got a static problem. Perhaps caused by an earth connection problem.
Or you have a bad earth connection on the cartridge.

My turntable has no sound when my mixer is switch to the 'stereo' setting however when I switch it to 'mono' its a low or bad sound quality. Why is that?

At the back of your mixer you should have a switch to change the frequency for a turntable. Also make sure you have the turntable's earth (ground) wire connected.

I have technics 1210 mk3d turntable, problem is its sending out a louder sound signal through the right speake than the left .... please help !

Two causes a bad cartridge, or something wrong with the pre-amp for turntables in your amp. Reversing the leads into the amp should make the poor channel go to the other side. If it doesn't it's the pre-amp. If it is the pre-amp, they are not to diffcult to fix. Most are just an IC with a few components around it.

ION iTTUSB turntable has buzzing sound when I record

It sounds like you have a bad ground on the tone arm. It's probably time to replace the tone arm wiring, or the external connecting cables.

Your belt is probably worn and needs replacing. Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps

My Crosley combination turntable/CD/cassette/AM & FM radio has recently started giving me fits. I bought it new in 2003 and, until a few months ago, it worked great. But now the turntable arm won't click...

my Crosley CR6007A-MA turntable's sound is very, very low. You can't even hear it barely. I haven't had it long at all and it wasn't broke due to any sort of abuse. I really have no idea why it would do this for no reason! Help!
