a new turntable is needed

Gemini PDT-6000... | Answered on Oct 16, 2009

I don't think the problem is the actual stylus (needle), it sounds like the magnetic cartridge has become faulty in some way (it does happen). My advice is try another cartridge and stylus (borrow if you can). If the audio stays the same then it MAY be the wiring in the arm going through the plinth (deck) and these wires terminate to pins or a small pcb board in the turntable where the phono cables and arm wires are connected. There may be a bad connection inside.
Also, make sure your tonearm counterweight and anti-skate are set up properly as well as this can have an effect on audio.
I hope this helps as I have been into audio since I was a kid!

I don't know if this model is direct driven or by belt. If it's belt driven then the belt could be fitted incorrectly, or faulty. Another possibilty is that there's a fault in the motor control circuit.

I have just posted a cure for this deck, it is to do with the microswitches under the speed select buttons - they need to be replaced. Just repaired mine today - now there are no more problems selecting speeds.
If the speed goes back to 33 when the deck is switched off, this is because 33 is the default.

Much depends on the noise and where it is originating. The deck doesn't seem well thought of and it is unlikely the manufacturer has a spare parts service - unless you have the skills needed to locate and rectify the "noise", which could be electrical, electronic or mechanical, and otherwise restore the deck it would seem advisable to replace it.

It is replaced with an LED. Any Disco supplies store should be able to advise. Similar to the Technics SL1200 series.
