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?

this old timer probably has an output amplifier fault.with a circuit diagram any competent engineer shoulb able to locate the problem with the turntable removed access is easy and so is replacing parts
hello my frien let me tell you that the system wont accept more speakers or diferent loads per ohm if the total load says 16 ohms by channel thats the total can handle so if you ad more speakers the system turns off before it burns or or have a severe damage........saludos
Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...
There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..
If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.
If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..
So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...
