mine does the same, look down the tonearm when you take ur carts out and youl see the four prongs inside where they screw in the arm. on mine two of the the springs have given, stoppin two of the four prongs to not connect to the cart, or be lose. it causes the volume to drop slightly on that deck, and every now and again it cuz out completely, i just unscrew the cart and give em a lick, sorts it out right.

failing that maybe deck / tonearm wiring has a lose solder joint, after that maybe change your audio / ground cables?

You shouldn't lick them, eventually you will corrode your contacts and have to replace them.

As for the different levels it could be the tone arm contacts. Could also be the leads from your decks to the mixer. Try swapping them and check the levels then see if it makes a difference. If it is the cables they're cheap to replace. If its the tonearm or inside the deck or mixer its more of a problem...

I've got whitelabels too btw. The difference between them and my old stanton carts is amazing!!!

yeah theyre fuckkkkking crisp

Biggest difference for me was the bass response and movement. I've got speakers that go very low and powerfull and the other needles just sounded flabby and muddy in comparison. Everything is so tight and deep with the whitelabels. The top end doesn't sound like mush anymore either :)
