You will have to remove the spindle by easing out the horseshoe clip or otherwise remove the screws that hole it together to get to the rubber bands that turn the turntable and clean them with a little rubbing alchol and a clean paper towel or q-tip.

I have a JVC turntable (AL-A155TN/AL-A155TNX). I haven't used it in about ten years. I hooked it up today. I played four records on it. Two were fine. The other two, however, started off fine


The only thing that might cause something like that is a build up of static. You can buy anti-static products for records and turntables. I tend to use an anti-static spray which also cleans the records.

My 412Hot Rod Deville has terrible humming/white noise when distortion channel is on


It doesn't happen often but I suspect that the high gain input jack is defective. With nothing plugged into either input jack part of the signal is grounded and there should not be any noise. It might be that plus a noisy preamp tube. Try swapping the first two tubes to see if there is less noise. Carefully bang your fist or use an insulated tool's handle to hear if the noise changes. It might be an intermittent solder connection as well.

I bought an Audio Technica USB AT LP 120 Turntable last June. It worked fine as a turntable, but I was never able to get good recordings of vinyl without distortion. But now I have another problem: when...


Sorry it could be the cartridge! They can fail at anytime, only the stylus will wear with time. However it could be the amplifer's magnetic cartridge pre-amp. If you look inside your amp and trace back from the phono socket you should find the pre-amp. If it is distorting on both channels it's probably an IC that has failed.

I have an Audio-Technica turntable (AT-PL50). I recently moved and when I hooked my turntable back up, the sound is terrible. It sounds distorted, similar to the sound of blown-out speakers. But, I checked...


it sounds like your cartridge is shot and damaged.
this turntable has fixed cartridge and only the stylus can be changed.

check out this manual: http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/resource_library/literature/0fb01429606842cf/at_pl50_om.pdf

Distorted, cracked sound coming through to the speakers


is it possible your new reciever has a built in phono pre-amp?

If so, you need to switch off the pre-amp inside the turntable (lift up the rubber matt, and rotate the plate untill you see the switch at the back)

Try again now?

Distorted sound.


Your turntable is a preamp. Your amplifier might be going bad. did you connect it into phono? dont connect it into the cd or dvd input because those wont work.
