Sony PS-T3 turntable one-speaker audio

Hi, pros! Of course, I'm dating myself here, but I have a Sony PS-T3 turntable that has been working just fine since I bought it back in 1979. And I have quite a few vinyl records that I am still fond of playing. It's been working fine until just recently, that is. I only get audio out of one speaker. I checked my other components and both speakers work. Also, I checked the wiring from the turntable to the receiver and everything seemed in good shape and fully connected. It seems to be an issue of internal wiring. I'm tempted to take the turntable apart and try to fix it myself. Do you have any suggestions?

I have a PS-LX250H turntable. I connect it to a stereo receiver. I have actually tried 2 different receivers and can't get any decent volume from using the turntable. Even with the volume turned all...

Have you tried testing it on something else, I guess my thought it possibly it the needle. In other words are you pretty sure your needle is working. I have had the problem years ago with the needle not registering. And next step, of course you make sure it plugs into the audio out put of the receiver. And third try plugging in , if you have it, another device to make sure your out put of receiver is working, if it does then most likely it is your needle. I really hope this helps some, thank mike

Ps-lx 430 1 speaker gives low volume. Otherwise speakers work with other components

This is an old-school turntable so it requires a PHONO input on the amplifier (or a Phono Preamplifier). It will not produce either enough volume or the correct frequency response without it. Google Phono RIAA

Sony PS-LX300USB Turntable, one channel not working

Have you tried swopping over the output leads from the turntable to the amp (normally one red and one white phono plug) so they are in each others socket? If you do this and you still get no sound from the right channel it is almost certain to be a faulty amp,or speaker.
If you swop and get no sound from the LEFT channel it is could be either a faulty lead or cartridge.

PS-T3 connection to Sherwood 4105 Receiver

You need a phono stage (phono amp) between the turntable and receiver to boost the lower signal from the turntable. If your receiver has phono inputs, use those as there will be a built-in phono stage.
