All my records sound really modulated skipping the pitch on longer notes and higher end vocals. It is pretty much brand new, any ideas pleaseeee????

I suggest you begin by ensuring the turntable and tonearm are as near perfect as you can. The reproduction of sound from vinyl depends first and foremost on the operation of the mechanical components.

The correct stylus fitted correctly with the weight of the tonearm adjusted to the recommended value for the cartridge. There should be no friction vertically or laterally in the arm travel, though some high quality types are fitted with hydraulic dampers.

It is also essential the turntable runs smoothly at a consistent speed. Vinyl purists have all sorts of ways of checking the turntable speed is correct. Most turntables have rubber belts or wheels in the drive from the motor and a defect can ruin the quality of the reproduction.

Owning a turntable for vinyl reproduction is a suitable hobby for a keen amateur mechanic...

Once you are satisfied the mechanical components are in good order and functioning correctly there is only the electronics to consider.
There are two approaches. One involves putting a known good signal into the input of your record player amplifier and the other involves using the output from your turntable into a known good amplifier and speaker system.

These steps involve opening up the case of your record player and making and unmaking various connections.

Good luck!

Where can I sell vinyl records?

Don't expect to get much for them unless they are very rare editions in almost unplayed shape. You can try selling them on EBAY, go to swap markets or flea markets or antique dealers who deal in old radios and record players, or look in your area for used record stores (there are a few still around).

Need a sylvania usb turntable manual

The simple answer, practically speaking: there is no such thing. Now to explain:

If you could find anyone in the civilized world born in any of the past 125 or more years leading up to the most recent 24 (or less) years, he or she would be able to effectively "recite" any such manual in a little as 5 or fewer brief, easy-to-understand sentences; so why endure the grief of a fool's mission to find what wasn't worth not losing to begin with. Consider these long since known facts:
  1. There is no such thing as a turntable or record changer produced by any mfr named Sylvania--just like more commonly branded items such as light bulbs are not made by Sylvania (since it expired as a major TV producer long decades ago but not before selling rights to use of its once-famous-among-the-impressionable brand rights and good will.
  2. There is nothing apart from a branding to disitinguish any basic (or even advanced...word used loosely) turntable or changer from any other such item anywere in the world or any time since the mid 20th century. So buy any manual if you can find one, or write your own...all the same.
  3. Whoever it might be, among the one to a few manufacturers, who are responsible for producing and branding "your" turntable, would be very highly unlikely to have produced (rather than sublet a supplier to provide) a manual...because manuals are overhead and overhead expense reduces profit already at slim margin.
  4. Once you have figured and accomplished the few simple steps to operate one of the simplest devices ever known to mankind--a washing machine can be an order of magnitude or more difficult to fathom--you will wonder to your own amazement (that's classic, not contemporary amazement) why you would ever want to memorialize the steps you just took and didn't take.
So here's your manual, which I offer without copyright for you to save and print out for you, your children, and your children's children (until something better than vinyl comes along):
1. After raising cover, place record onto spindle (if turntable) or drop-spindle (if changer) and rotate/lower hold down arm (if changer). 2. Set or don't set platter (that's the turning table) rotation speed depending on record type/speed marked on record package. 3. Slide START lever to its stop point; release; and wait (if changer) or toggle on table rotation and manually place tone arm and stylus onto record outer start landing or groove (if turntable). 4. Wait until sound stops indicating playback end, stow tone arm, and remove record (if turntable); or lift and swing hold-down orm and remove record (if changer). 5. Supplemental: repeat; or turn off platter moter power (if turntable and not changer).
Now I won't be able to sleep for fear of the waking in the morning wondering what it would be like to have never encountered the enigma that is record player operation. Yikes, you are a brave one.

Needle jumps on all new vinyl, but plays old records fine. New vinyl plays on other turntables without a problem. Do you have any suggestions?

Adjust the balance force up. This is a counterweight on the back of the arm. For most needles it is 1-2 grams.

Proper cleaning of old vinyl record albums

Get yourself a nice carbon fiber brush. Purchase some record cleaner or just get some isopropyl alcohol 90% (it has less impurities). Secure the arm of the turntable so you don't scratch the record and put the record on it. Put some of the cleaning solution on the brush..not the record. Put the brush on the record and turn the platter counter clockwise to work the dirt loose. Check the brush and clean it if need be and repeat. Take the record off and clean the turntable. Flip the record over and repeat the cleaning process. That should do it. Thanks for stopping by and come back if you need more help. If you don't mind, rate my answer appropriately. Thanks.
