If the turntable is a belt driven unit have you checked to see if the belt has slipped off from around the inside on the platter. Or maybe it could be snapped.
Put you ear to the turntable and switch it to play (you will have to pull the tone arm to where it would normally be to play an LP) listen for a faint noise of a motor running. If you can hear it, the drive belt could be the culprit.
I just checked and YES it is a belt drive. I'll bet my boots that's the problem. Pull the power plug and inspect the actual platter to see if it's removeable. You may have to rmove a circlip from the main drive shaft to remove the platter. To replace the belt. Slip it over the motor shaft and lay it in the bottom under where the platter sits. Then replace the plater and using two fingers pick up the belt and guide it onto the rim the inner rim under the platter and keep rotating the platter slowly until the complete belt is around that inner rim.

Things are now ready to go. If the belt continues to fall off it means it''s been stretched and you will require a replacement. Obviously for free if it's under warranty. Changing the belt yourself shouldn't void the warranty.

Could be, but check the wiring to the cartridge, plus the connection to your amp. A poor earth wire or one touching the other can make it sound tinny.

Not all of the sound/music is being transferred from the LP.Hard to explain, but its when the LP has sound coming out of each speaker independent of one another, only one side is coming out on the recorded...


I know this is an old post, an I dont' have a solution yet, but t seems the same problem as on my Ion USB recorder - One of the input channels is not working. Like you, I found one of my music tracks not plying right - there was only the instrumental and no vocal. When I experimented, and changed round the jacks on the cable coming from the turntable (red and white plugs), I then got only vocals and no instrumental. Obviously one of the input sockets on the USB recorder is no longer working (I already checked the turntable and cable itself by playing back he same track with both stereo channels through my amplifier). You can either get the item replaced if its still under guarantee, or fix it yourself, if you have the necessary skills, neither of which apply to me.

After recording lots of music from my Ion Contour LP I have suddenly lost output from one channel??


First disconect the wires to the cartridge. With you amp on, touch each wire one at a time. You should hear a buzz on two of the wires (one one each channel) and nothing on the other two. If you do hear the buzz on both channels the cartridge has failed or the connection to it is poor. If you are still missing a channel then the problem lies in either what connects the two devices, or the magnetic cartridge pre-amp inside the amp.

My Ion Contour Lp only records one track of a album but if i take the tick out of the box that says split tracks it will record the whole side,it shows up in itunes as temp 1 or 2 but not the artists name...


i had a similar problem, itunes/EZ hung after trying to split the first rtack. maybe you have the same problem?. its fixed by downloading latest version of ez software

I have a second problem. the noise from the pickup ( actually on the turntable ) is very high . I can easily hear the lps playing off the needle!! this results in very poor quality recordings. any ideas?

I have a mid 1970s Sears turntable with am/fm, casette, and 8-track. It plays older vinyl just fine and even one new 45 but my new 33 skips a lot. Could it be the record, do I need a new needle, any...


My suggestion is ask a friend etc with a turntable to try the new LP and see if it bounces on there's. If it plays your old stuff it most likely doesn't need a new stylus. Records are records they don't make them any different to what they used to. Check the new LP, is it warped does it have marks where it jumps?

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed


1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.

or

2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.
