HELLO!
I don't think the problem is the actual stylus (needle), it sounds like the magnetic cartridge has become faulty in some way (it does happen). My advice is try another cartridge and stylus (borrow if you can). If the audio stays the same then it MAY be the wiring in the arm going through the plinth (deck) and these wires terminate to pins or a small pcb board in the turntable where the phono cables and arm wires are connected. There may be a bad connection inside.
Also, make sure your tonearm counterweight and anti-skate are set up properly as well as this can have an effect on audio.
I hope this helps as I have been into audio since I was a kid!

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.

Gemini XL-BD10. Always worked fine. Started sounding muffled and "dirty." Thought it was the needle. Replaced it with a new one. Still the same. Tried a new set of RCA cables and ground wire. Same thing....


Check the internal circuit of the deck, follow the leads from the cartridge. Perhaps a faulty resistor or something else in any pre-amp. Make certain also it's not your amp that has not got a faulty phono pre-amp stage.

GOING FROM 45 TO 33


I don't know if this model is direct driven or by belt. If it's belt driven then the belt could be fitted incorrectly, or faulty. Another possibilty is that there's a fault in the motor control circuit.

During vinyl play the sound will drop Numark TTUSB


sounds like the needle is worn down...try to replace the needle.....the buzzing sound often comes from open groung connections...that can come from the cartridge itself to the jacks on the back of the unit....bad ground and buzzing is normal for turntables and will also dramatically affect your sound level because the buzz or groung fault is higher than the sound being picked up by the needle.....open grounds can be checked with a meter set to continuity....to check for continuos line feed with no breaks in the lines.....if you find a broken line ...then that's your problem....it is a very simple repair....if the ground problem is in the cartridge...replace the cartridge which comes with a new needle as well...it's cheaper to buy it that way in stead of just bying a needle...if the ground fault is anywhere after the cartridge...then it's just a mater of replacing or repairing the line..again..very cheap repair....also...if the cartridge just clips on to the shell, sometimes it makes bad connections there too....that can just be cleaned with a little sand paper and it will work again....good luck

My 33 & 45 speed giving problems


HELLO
I have just posted a cure for this deck, it is to do with the microswitches under the speed select buttons - they need to be replaced. Just repaired mine today - now there are no more problems selecting speeds.
If the speed goes back to 33 when the deck is switched off, this is because 33 is the default.
ALL THE BEST!
