The only thing I can say is to make sure you set up your cartridges correctly - click HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS on BALANCING YOUR TONEARM properly.
If, you've balanced your tonearm, and set up your cartridges correctly, then you should not have any problems. Unless, your tonearms are damaged. But this is highly unlikely. I just think you need to balance properly.
Another note, Ortofon Concorde have a design flaw, in that they don't connect very well to the Technics tonearm. The Concorde's, have short and stubby connections on the rear, making for poor connections to the tonearm. Ortofon has addressed this issue by releasing the Ortofon OM series cartridges, and mount them to standard Technics Headshell.
If you still can't figure this out, feel free to give our techs a call 24/7 @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1 - they can walk you through setting up, and properly testing your tonearm to see if it's damaged or not.

Just guessing, but it sounds like you haven't counterbalanced your tone arm. When a tone arm skips, it's usually because there's too much counter weight on the rear of the tone arm. You want between 3-5 grams, but first you have to calibrate your tone arm (balance it so you know where zero is). If you don't know how to do this, refer to the Ion directions called "Tonearm Setup" in the instructions.

Your needle (stylus) is either worn out or not seated properly. If you continue to try using it without the problem being corrected, it will ruin your records. You can check it to see if it's worn out by dragging your finger over it, lightly, from back to front only. It should feel like a small pin. It should also be seated into the groove on the tonearm. If this doesn't correct the problem, replace it.

As you Marantz 6025 is a belt drive type turntable, the most possible problem is that the belt has been cut or destroyed. You can check it out before order a new one.
Here is the replacement procedure. Pull up the rubber mat, pull up the platter and find the belt. If the belt is removed from the platter, replace it with the glossy side outward. Pull the platter back at the original position. Turn until one of the 2 big openings come over the motor pulley. With your finger place the belt from the platter at the motor pulley. Pull the rubber mat back. You are ready. Here is a schematic for all the above:
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
