Unfortunately, manuals that have the advanced troubleshooting guides for stereos are distributed to the authorized repair shops and in many cases are not available to the public.
The problem you are describing usually is caused by a grounding issue or a bad stylus. There are several troubleshooting options: Grounding: 1.) Check to make sure your device is properly grounded, most turntables have a grounding wire and most pre-amps have a grounding screw. Make sure this connection is made. 2.) If you are comfortable disassembling the turntable, remove the stylus (or cartage) to avoid damage and remove the platter. Follow the ground cable and make sure that there is no shorts in the wire. If the wire is damaged, or broken inside, replace it. Stylus: 1.) Remove the cartage/stylus and look at the needle. It should come down with a very small notch at the end. If it is missing or hardly visible, it is time to replace it. There are many great vendors online which carry replacements. For the best service, take it into a local hi-fi audio repair shop. Many diagnose issues free of charge.

Static in background of recordings

There is not enough info here to narrow this down to far. What is the sound source? The internal mic or direct via cable? Also, does the background noise stay the same regardless of the playback mode? Supplying these details will enable me to locate the problem circuit and provide potential fixes.

I record and save a scene and it plays back. But if I switch off the device and switch it back on after an hour, the isn't there anymore!!

From page 10 of your user manual:

A scene is a static lighting state. Scenes are stored in the temporary memory, until they are transferred to one of the playback faders. You may create a single scene or a succession of up to 999 steps per Scene.

Make sure you transfer the scene to a playback fader, otherwise the scene is only stored in temporary memory and will be lost when power is turned off.
