Make sure your ground wire is connected. I know Serato does not work properly if your ground wire is connected.

Also, make sure your running the connection from the Line Out of the Serato box into the LINE IN on your mixer. You can use the Phono Input also, but I generally tell people to use the line input to avoid any issues. Regardless of which input you use, make sure that your Serato software is either set to LINE or PHONO, otherwise it wont run properly.

Serato does not recognise my technics turntable. The turntable is on and turning well but no response from serato. the arms in the serato do not move...help?


serato is a software to be used with an external soundcard it doesnt care what turntables you have. u have to a rane mixer or one that is serato capable in order to use it. then you have to go and link and sync your time codes

You check it by trying a regular vinyl record to see if it is the cartridge. Make sure you have the input on phono for vinyl and on aux if you are using serrato. If the turntables are older try cleaning the contacts on the tone arm where the cartridge goes. make sure it is grounded properly also. Try plugging the turntable that is not working in where the working one is to check the channel on the mixer.

I have a technics 1200 mk5 and when i put a record on the volume is low no matter how high i pt it up in the mixer. When i use it with serato it works fine. What can be the problem?


Years ago, Radio Shack sold a turntable with the same problem. The fix was to purchase a pre-amp to go between the turntable and the tuner/amp. I think this had something to do with a magnetic vs. ceramic cartridge?

1210 mk5 poor sound


If the cartridge is good and your wiring is good. Then it's either got to be a fault on your amp, or there is a pre-amp in the deck itself faulty. Double check that the amp is working, amps have a pre-amp for record decks, they cause trouble a lot.
If you touch the wires that connect to the cartridge, you should get a buzz on either channel (remove them from the cartridge first). If you don't get a decent buzz, and you know that the amp is working fine, then there's something inside the deck causing the problem. In which case take the bottom off and take a look inside.

Tonearm not emitting signal into Serato


there is a switch that cuts off the signal when the tone arm docks.check the wiring is not broken inside and that the switch is ok.typically,red green white black red and white are plus and left ground is green and right ground is black.the collar that screws on to the head unit has 4 pins.make sure the contacts are clean.measure the wires one at a time from the tone arm to the rca plugs on the back.the green and black go to the outside collars,and the red and white go to the center pin of the rca plugs

One cdj and one turntable


This is possible, by connecting your turntable to the Line Input on the serato box. Then just connect both to your LINE INPUT on your mixer, and set the controls on your Serato Software to LINE INPUT - NOT Phono.
