hey there Jack, I have the exact same turntable and had the exact same problem. It's a pretty simple fix.

The control arm for the stop button,more then likely, got pushed a bit too far back.

Now bare with me, because I don't know the names of the mechanisms, but I'll try to make it sound simple.

First you're going to take off plate and belt, because you're going to be taking off the bottom cover of your turntable. If you don't remove the plate & belt, when you flip over the turntable, it's all going to fall and you could damage your belt.

Next your going to flip over the turntable and remove the screws that are holding on the bottom cover on. I think there are 5 of them.

Now that the cover is off, look at where the play and stop buttons are. Follow the thin metal arms that are connected to them. They should end at a white plastic piece (sorry, I don't know the name of it). Now check if the stop arm is hooked behind it or if it's pressed against the front of it. The stop arm should be RESTING ON THE FRONT of the white plastic piece.

If it's hooked behind the plastic piece, carefully pull it out and then place it against the front of the white plastic piece and you should be good to go.

Make sure your receiver has a PHONO input. If you are connecting it to a LINE or AUX input, then there is not enough signal to boost the sound coming from the turntable. Turntables require a PHONO input, because phono input's have a pre-amp on them, which boost the turntable signal. If you do not have a PHONO input on your receiver, you will need to buy a Phono Pre-Amp.

If you have a phono input, then you might have an issue with the turntable's RCA cables, or your cartridge may be at fault.

On the early (pre 2017) versions, the anti-skate spring was too weak. To overcome this issue, you either need to cut off about a third of the existing spring or replace it with the new stronger one. Audio-Technica can supply this directly but they will charge you for it.

If it is UHF and fairly new, select the frequency on the transmitter and then power up the receiver, press search and it should find it.

Use an alternative device connected to the input the turntable usually connects to. If both channels work ok the new turntable is clearly faulty and should be returned under warranty.

That is a condenser mic and I bet the others you are trying are dynamic. Does your unit supply phantom power? It should. Or look for a power injector as a separate box.

I don't think is possible. But its entirely my point of view,as i feel technically its not possible.

Try checking your user manual provided for microphone. That may offer you better guidance.

You need to repair the internal RIAA pre amp.

If the echo is electronically produced, that can be removed in the effects menu. If it is because your room echoes, use more wadding.
