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.

I can't get any sound through my Sony ps t3 turntable. Any help would be appreciated


First determine if your amp is working. You can do this by putting your finger on the phono plugs that comes out from the terminals that your deck fits in. You should hear a buzz (if it's switched on). If you don't get a buzz then the pre-amp inside your amp may be faulty. This pre-amp failure will not affect any other functions on your Receiver.
Next thing to check is if the signal from the cartridge can reach the amp. You do this by removing the wires from the cartridge. While the amp is on and deck connected to it. Touch with your finger (one at a time) each of the four wires. On two you will little or no noise. On the other two you should hear on the left hand channel a buzz from one wire and on the other wire a buzz on the right. If you hear no buzz and the amp is working OK then there's a fault in the wires to the turntable or inside the deck.
If that is good, then you might need to make certain that connections to the cartridge are good.

Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum.

I just replaced the stylus on my sony PS-LX300USB turntable, but now there is a constant static on even my new records


You have either knocked the connections to the cartridge causing a loose connection, or not seated the stylus right. Or you have static build up, which can be caused by poor earthing.

I got a 43 yr old Pioneer manual turntable. I have to almost max my speakers to get a good sound. Help


Firstly does the receiver have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp built in? It will have to have a dedicated "phono" socket for this. If it hasn't you need to get one.
The only other cause is a faulty cartidge. You can test this by removing the wires to the cartridge. By touching with your finger each wire, amp on of course, you should hear a loud buzz on two of them one for each channel. If you don't hear any buzz or it's still weak, even if the receiver has a pre-amp, then either the cables to the amp are faulty or the pre-amp in the amp is.

I have a Sony direct drive PS-X5 turntable. I have to turn the amp up all the way to hear any sound.


If you're not connecting the TT to a PHONO preamp or a receiver with a built-in PHONO connection the signal from it will be too weak to get any meaningful volume PLUS the RIAA equalization curve required for flat phono playback won't be applied so it will sound very 'tinny'.

Google it.

Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?

You have to make sure your unit is connected to the PHONO INPUT connection on your receiver. If your receiver does not have a PHONO INPUT connection, then you will need to buy what's called a PHONO PRE-AMP - AVAILABLE HERE.

You connect the turntable to the Phono Pre-Amp, then you connect the Pre-Amp to the LINE IN or AUX IN of your receiver.
