Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable

1 Answer

Turntable turns, but there's no sound.

When I had a surround sound system installed a year ago, the turntable worked fine. It stopped working a couple months later. I've checked that all the cables are still securely in place. The red and white cables are attached to a pre-amp, which in turn is plugged into the aux ports on my receiver. But there is no sound when the turntable and receiver are on. It turns, but that's all. Could it be a problem with the cables? The stylus? Or is the turntable just "dead"?
I have a Technics SL-BD20

Well, the motor itself is completely separate from the sound. The path of the sound is basically

Styli -> Cartridge -> Tonearm -> RCA Cables -> Input Source

I would say start from the beginning. Check your stylus. If it's ok, then that means your Cartridge is probably ok. Make sure you have a secure connection from the tonearm to the cartridge assembly.

There really isn't much else to it.

If you cannot get it to work, I would suggest taking it to a service center for assistance.

Why did it stop revolving?


The driving element, be it belt or rubber puck, may have failed. It's not an unusual failure in a turntable that is several years old and rarely used.

Hi, you need to connect the turntable to your amp via a phono input connection. If no phono input available then a pre amp needs to be used between turntable and amp to up the signal. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

We want to connect a SL-B5 to a sourround system and the sound its not coming out what should we do?


is your surround system has a phono input? because most of the turntable can only work with the unit that has a phono input, phono input has a a built-in pre-amp. so if you're only hooking your turntable to an ordinary input then this might be the case, you won't hear any sound or sometimes weak sound.

Have linked it up to my normal surround hi fi system but no sound. No sound either when connected to my pc.


You asked this question in the TTUSB category. Do you have that turntable and how are you connecting it to the surround sound?

The turntable has a USB port and corresponding EZ Vinyl software that lets you monitor the output of the turntable. Then you can connect the computer sound card to speakers to hear what is playing.

Microwave turntable doesn't turn. Everything else


The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

But if you've recently had trouble with the cooktop lights, then the control board may be damaged.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

Technics SL-L3 turntable no sound until warm up


either the cartridge is bad in the phonograph tone arm.  Or the pre-amp in the stereo is bad...remember that the turntable is the only accessory that uses the pre-amp input on the stereo.  I'm betting the pre-amp is bad.

LOW VOLUME ON MY SL-B35 TURNTABLE


Hi Tim,

You probaably do not have a phono input on the digital surround amp you are using. Your sound is bad for 2 reasons
  1. Your Turn Table has low output level,about 100 times less than a CD player.
  2. You need RIAA equalisation to reduce the treble and boost the bass. This is for replaaying any modern vinyl or LP's
You can get an outboard preamp that matches the output of your T/T to suit the normal aux input on todays digital surround amp.
You can get one online from here. Or if you are keen build one from a circuit here

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.
