We just got a PL50 and plugged it into the computer per the instructions. One instruction says to just plug it into the computer another says to run it through a stereo receiver. We get sound through the computer but cannot record as an mp3. what do we need to do to record mp3 from our old vinyl?

This turntable has a preamp switch on it, which is probably on and what is causing the distortion. Take off the metal record platter by lifting up on the two holes gently. Turn the pre-amp switch to 'off' and then try it again. This is probably it...
Or you can plug it into an input that doesn't have a preamp and that should work.
most likely it's a 120vac motor. Get the bottom off and look for where power comes in somewhere on or around the base of the tonearm will be an actuator switch. unplugged, set the meter for ohms and operate the switch by moving the tone arm. You may have to use clip leads to get a free hand. The switch should read 0 ohms when the tonearm is moved. If not, you've got a bad switch.
While you are in there look around for anything that may have come loose or unplugged. Also, with it plugged in you should read somewhere between 110-120Volts ac between neutral and the motor side of the switch, when actuated. BE CAREFUL 110v can be lethal, or at the very least cause an unpleasant experience. Good luck
Try pushing the button on the far right. I had this same problem last night before I released the button was in the wrong position. It is called the "Lift" button and when depressed it lifts the needle up from the record- or keeps it raised and never lets it come down.
with everything plugged and running go to preferences in FILE and set Recording Device and channels to Audio device USB in Audio I/O.Tick software playthrough.
now set the microphone box to Stereo mix on the home screen(box is left of small scissors) hope this helps.nigel.
