Question about Stanton T62 Turntable

1 Answer

I have a pair of Stanton T62s which I got about a year ago. I moved from SF to LA and now I can only hear static from my right turntable through my headphones. I don't have speakers yet and I thought it was a grounding wire problem since I was missing one on that side. However, I just got one, screwed it in, and nothing has changed. Please help troubleshoot! Could it be my cables? Or is it something wrong with my turntable? Thank you!

Disconnect the wires to the cartridge on the turntable that has trouble. Then put your headphones and with it powered up. Touch each cable end of the loose wires of the cartridge one at a time with your finger. On two you should hear a buzz, one on each channel. On the other two wires you might get a slight buzz or a crackle, but don't expect anything. If you get a buzz on both channels. Then the cartridge is faulty. If you do not get a buzz on either channel then there is something wrong either inside the deck or the wiring to that deck.

SOURCE: left output from one of my turntables cuts out regularly leaving a hum

No, the issue is either with the RCA cables or the tonearm. You might also want to check your cartridge and headshell connection. Make sure the contacts are nice and clean, and securely on the headshell. Have you tried swapping out your turntables? Take the left turntable, and put it on the right channel's input, and vice-versa? This will tell help isolate the issue. If the problem just moves, then we know it's not your mixer. If the problem remains on the same side, then you know there is something wrong with your mixer.

If the problem moves, then you can safely say it's your turntable with the issue. The STR8-30's aren't the greatest quality, so it's also possible that you have a faulty tonearm or RCA cables.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I get rid of static? Do I need a ground

You might try grounding the device. Run a wire from the metal frame of your turn table to the screw on the face plate of your outlet (very simplest way to get a good ground). See if that works. If you do see improvement, you could rewire the turntable with a 3 conductor wire, taking the green to the same metal frame of your machine.

You may want to consider plugging your turn table into your amplifier - in that case, ground the turntable to the amp for best results.

You might also try turning the plug over if it is not a polarized plug.

You can also check your outlet to make sure it is wired properly (white wire to the big slot and black wire to the little slot (in the USA) ground on the round slot)

Static muffling/removal/'elimination'/masking is always a trade off. Your software doesn't really remove static - it filters the frequencies that static uses to make the static noise. So, yes, you have a dulling of the frequencies in that range. Sorry to tell you that ... it has been an issue ever since I got interested in this stuff at age 10 or so (giving me about 50 years experience with static at the consumer level).

Thanks for your question

SOURCE: I have a T62 Stanton

Is it connected to a "PHONO" input or something not labeled explicitly for PHONO?

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive.Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

eBay always has some...

Stanton T52 turntable static

Tricky. I would suggest running a wire to a earth point such as a copper pipe, say of a radiator. A lot of static could be caused by yourself when handling an record. Some carpets make this worse. You can get an anti-static earth strap for yourself, when you handle the records.

Stanton T52 Turntable. I get intermittent, loud popping, like static. I have checked ground wire, and it is hooked up to receiver just fine. I have cleaned my LPs in every way possible and have tried 3...

There are 3 possibilities I believe here. First a faulty connection to the cartridge or the cartridge itself. (2) internal (inside the deck) fault on a pre-amp. (3) Fault on the magnetic cartridge pre-amp in your amplifier. This would not effect any other functions on the amp.

How can I check the Stanton 500 mk11 cartridge is good, I have no output in one channel ?

To really be sure, under a microscope to look at the diamiond, but i haven\'t seen one channel oke and one chanel no sound. Then it should allways makes sound , only ckrackling. So be sure your wires are fit by tightening the connection and measure your output till the last connection with your stylus and move your connections a bit , if that\'s allright , then is it a cable or input from something outside your tt. But have you checked it also with first cleaning your needle well and another record and lift each side of the turntable a bit. Sometimes is one dust particle enough, even with a new stylus. Is your output line or phono? O a technics, take the whole needle out and those fours pins you have to lubricate with right stuf ( a tiny bit ) and move them in and out and you havent cheked the connection with your om/concorde, but i think that one pin won\'t come out totally, so pull a bit ( after lubrication ) push them all inside and watch if they come all four back. And pls replace those terrible quality rca cables from technics, they are crap and a nice pair from another brand is only 30 euro a pair, but you needle ain\'t broke for sure and does it work with another unit?.......(still clean and lubricate the stuff).I hear from you.
