Where do you have the turntable connected? Is it going into a DJ Mixer, a Receiver, or a Power Amp?

No matter the unit, make sure you have it plugged into the PHONO INPUT connection on the rear. If your receiver/amp does not have this, then you will need a PHONO PRE-AMP - The turntable connects to the PHONO PRE-AMP, and the PRE-AMP connects to the LINE IN or AUX IN of your receiver.

If you are connected to the PHONO INPUT of your mixer/receiver/amp, then the problem might be one of the following on the turntable:

1) Tonearm
2) RCA Cables
3) Cartridge

There is no easy way to see which one of these is the culprit, it's just a matter of elimination.

But, you didn't provide much information. If you can be more specific as to how you have your turntable connected, what kind of cartridge your using, and whether or not, you've determined that the problem is indeed the turntable and not your mixer/receiver/amp, or even your speakers. This would help in determining what the issue might be.

We need to know exactly what you have for electronics to give a specific answer.

Old-school turntables don't connect directly to speakers. It will require a PHONO preamplifier either integrated into a receiver or stand-alone and external to boost and frequency-balance the minute RIAA output signal produced by the phono cartridge.

You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

Hi, could just be platter not fitted hard down on spindle. I suggest you remove the platter and place it upon a dead flat surface to check to see that the platter is flat. If it is flat refit to turntable ensuring it is hard down on the spindle. If bent discard and replace with new platter.Platters can be ordered for all model 1200/1210 from styluscity@gmail.com

Try plugging it into a different power point. The problem is with the power supply fluctuating. You can eliminate that with a UPS, here is a link to wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninterruptible_power_supply

HELLO

Have a look at Originlive on the net. They do an armboard which should fit your turntable easily and enable to put a Rega RB250 or RB300 arm on your machine - it will improve audio quality too!
