Sound problems on my turntables

I have my turntables hooked up to a sherwood receiver and they worked great. Recently I have been having a problem with the volume and quality of sound, no matter how loud I turn them up they wont get any louder. They also make a humming noise when at a higher decible. I dont have the receiver grounded only because I'm not sure what to ground it to, could this be the problem?

Cannot hook up sound to surround sound , everything else works, cd player, radio, tapedeck. just the turntable does not work. any suggestions? deb


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

Stanton Turntable Problem with receiver/audio


You need a turntable pre-amp, or a receiver with turntable inputs.. The turntable is functioning properly, until recently no turntable had this built-in. Search ebay for turntable pre-amp and you should be good.

Technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver


The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

My turntable works on old reciever and not new one


A traditional turntable only works on Phono (which contains special preamplification and equalization circuitry designed to raise the the level and flatten out the response of a phono cartridge).

After you do that, iIf you're not having hum problems I wouldn't worry about the ground. Or try it again on the FM Ground.

FM Tuner in Sherwood RX-4105 stopped working


Check your antenna connections. Make sure your FM antenna is hooked up to the FM antenna terminal or jack on your Sherwood receiver. If you have the antenna hooked through the coaxial cable, check your coaxial cable with an ohmmeter for continuity. You can buy a volt-ohm meter as little as $12. Usually bad connection occur between coaxial cable and the the coax cable connectors. If that doesn't solve the problem, then there may be something wrong with your tuner card inside of your Sherwood receiver.

If you receivers display does not change channels or frequencies or AM or FM mode, when you try to change the channel or frequencies, or AM or FM mode, there may be something wrong with the front board of your receiver.

If there is something internally wrong your Sherwood receiver, you need to take it to a qualified technician that can fix it. Do not try to repair it yourself. If you don't know what you're doing, you can do far more damage to that Sherwood receiver to the point that would be very costly to repair.

Before you take your Sherwood receiver to a technician, try to unplug the receiver, and leave it unplugged for several minutes, and then plug it back in. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you need to take your Sherwood to a qualified technician.

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.

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
