Hi,
If it won't stay in place when you try to put it back on, it is stretched and worn out, and you will need a new one.

Can you use the AUX input to connect to L and R RCA line out from a turntable ?


it depends on the turntable. If it is an older turntable, then it will not have a built-in preamp and will output too low a signal level for the receiver to use. If it is a newer turntable with a preamp, then it should work just fine

I have vestax 05pro2. Left channel works but out of one speaker. The turntable input is good. Im thinking Its either the channel fader, or the rca inputs for that side. Has anyone had this problem?


Hi,
Here's a solution to see if you have a problem with either your receiver or turntable.
The turntable has 2 RCA's one red for right channel, and one white or black for left channel, which plug into the back of the amplifier.

  • Unplug both RCA from rear of amplifier.
  • Plug in a cd or dvd player into those inputs on the amplifier, the sound will be lower but it will give you an indication if the amplifier is ok or not.
  • If you have sound on both channels left and right then the amplifier is good
  • If you still only have sound on left channel, then there is a problem with the right channel input on the amp.
  • If your amp, is good, unplug the cd /dvd player.
  • Put a record on and start playing the record
  • Plug the white or black RCA from the turntable into the rear of the amplifier marked left, you should have sound.
  • now unplug it from the left and plug in into the right red RCA socket, if you have sound the amplifier is working fine.
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge on the turntable
  • now lets reverse the test
  • unplug both RCA from amp.
  • Plug the red RCA into the left socket on amplifier, if there is sound, turntable is working fine, if no sound there is a problem with either the stylus cartridge or that red RCA cable.
  • now unplug the red RCA from the left side and plug it into the right side socket
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge or RCA cable.
I hope this helps

Bought some speakers, they're big and heavy but they don't have any indication of what ohm they are, i connected my turntable and all i can get is a high pitch noise from the speakers and no audio...


Hi,
most of the speakers are " 8 ohms " ..the very old German made ones are 4 ohms only ...

which RCA jacks did you connect your turntable to Receiver ?
if "phone" ,it requires without "PREAMP" output from turntable.otherwise you will ruin the circuits in Receiver and make high pitch sound.....

Try with any other input on the receiver (i.e AUX.) and test it...
unless your RCA cable broken it should work well.you can try with another cable..and remember to make a solid ground connection between turntable and receiver as well..it is a must.....

Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up
for Helping out the Community :)

Hope this helps!

My marantz tt 155 turntable won't turn. is there a turntable lock? or is the only other reason a broken belt? thank you.


Could certainly be a broken belt. Lift record tray and look to see if belt has fallen off or has basically fell apart. Belts can be purchased at Marantz.com. If no belt could be a bad motor. Same website.

Turntable won't turn


Hi!

Without any other information (and assuming you've checked to make sure there is power to the turntable and that it is turned on), the likely culprit is the belt drive of your turntable. Most, but not all, turntables have a "belt" that looks like a big rubber band on the underside of the turntable that connects the turntable itself to the drive motor. If the band has slipped out of place, stretched too far from age or usage, or broken, the turntable won't turn. To find out if this is your problem, gently lift the "platter" straight up (it should easily slide back into place) and visually see if the "rubber band" is in place. If it is stretched too far or broken, a new one should be availble form Teac or your local electronics supplier. If, by chance, you have a direct-drive turntable (unlikely), the problem will probably need professional work.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!

The trick is to lift up on the platter (tothat metal on metal feel that you had) while simtaneously "lightly" tapping on the top of the shaft with a hammer. Trust me it will work as just changed my belt.
Hope that helps.
