Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Unplug your turntables.
The first thing to do is compressed air. A can of compressed air can be purchased at any hardware store. Blow out each fader (the sliding part of the platter) to the best of your ability. The dust in this fader is causing the nasty noise.
Next, you need to get a can of Contact Cleaner. The best stuff to buy is called "DeOxit". Amazon carries it. Place the red straw onto the spray nozzle, and work the nozzle in between the dust guards where the metal shaft comes out of the fader (the knob of the fader attaches to the metal shaft) and spray the DeOxit. Once sprayed, work the fader back and forth rapidly 10-15 times, across its full range of motion. Let the DeOxit dry (5 minutes) and do it again. Do this for both tables, and the faders will be cleaned of the dust contaminate.
If this problem comes back, the faders may need to be replaced.
