Worked fine yesterday and now today will not turn on. No buzz, no noise, no nothing. When I lift the stylis it still "clicks" but does not turn on the table. Help. I love this thing! I've checked the outlet, tried another, I think I'm going to cry.

First check that the amp is working by putting your finger on the imputs at the back. You should get a buzz on each channel. Or disconect the wires to the cartridge, with the turntable connected to the amp and the amp on, touch the loose wires (you won't get a shock). You should hear the buzz on both channels with two of the wires (left & right). If you don't the pre-amp for the cartridge in the amp has failed. Will be a single IC that's gone, found by following the wires back from the deck imputs inside the amp.
If it buzzers then the cartridge has gone.
Ensure that your speakers are connected to the terminals that you have your speaker selector switch turned to. Then check that you have your device, whether it be a CD or DVD player, or turntable, plugged into the correct input and that you also have the correct input selected on the receiver.
I think I had the same problem. This is how I fixed it.
I have my vizio 42 hooked up to a Harmon Kardon surround sound, and the digital cable box. Essentially, I can adjust the volume 3 ways - through the tv, cable box or av receiver. The humming sound happens when you have the volume maxed out on the av receiver and not the cable box.
For example, the sound level on my Harmon Kardon goes from -10 (lowest) to 10 (loudest), with 0 being the middle ground. The buzzing was happening when the Harmon Kardon was set to 10, and I was using the cable box volume to adjust the sound. To fix it, I turned down the volume on my receiver to 0, which may be about 50% max volume of the receiver. Then, I switched devices and used the volume on my cable box. This got rid of the static I was getting. Hope that helps.
