The third wire is a ground wire I think. You are running the ttb through a phono input and not through a line level input on your system right?

Pioneer Pl990 turntable sounds awful.... I have a pioneer pl 990 record player connected to a pioneer amplifier and a sony CD player. when I play an LP, the sound is bass heavy and I can hardly hear t

When the turntable plays, do you get a howling bass heavy sound? Have you tried turning down the volume and bass? If that corrects the problem, you have what's known as Acoustic Feedback. Check to make sure the tonearm is properly set up first. If it is, please visit my website at You may contact me there. Thank you.

I just bought a pioneer pl-420 direct drive record player and when i hooked it up to my samsung home theater system via the aux ports in front but when i play records the sound is too low im have to turn...

If the player has a MD/MC pickup head, you need to use an input suitable for MD/MC
(Magneto Dynamic/Moving Coil). If that is not available, you need to buy a standalone
phono pre-amp (pre-amplifier with RIAA-correction curve). Like the TCC TC-400G/L.
Example: See HERE and some info HERE.

Pulsating in my speakers. sounds fine but I know it cant be healthy for my speakers , you really notice it in between tracks , I have a new stylus, tried both phono inputs, Pioneer PL-10, nothing fancy,...

it sound like bass rumble ( or bass feedback) to me, try locating your turntable further away from the speakers if possible, and make sure it is isolated from the table or what ever it is sitting on, by some sort of rubber feet.

My Pioneer PL-990 Turntable only outputs sound through the white wire. Only a quiet buzz comes through the red wire.

The red wire is the right channel, so going back to your amp, get a single phono plug with with the wire exposed, so you can touch the wire. Then remove the turntable connections. With the amp on plug the the lose wire plug into each channel and check if the sound on the right is still low. If it is then there's a problem with the magnetic cartridge pre-amp inside the amp. They are often located near the phono socket on a seperate PC board, but if not just follow the red wire to the main board. Chances are it will be an IC that's failed.
If it has a strong buzz at the back of the amp. Then I should replace the wire between the turntable and the amp. Or the right phono plug that connects to the amp.

Pioneer pl-200 turntable one channel is dull and muffled

I think we need to do more diagnosis. Did you try swapping the channel cables Left-to-Right so you're sure it is in the TT and not in your Phono preamp?
If it's still in the TT and always on the same channel with two different cartridges you probably have a wire problem in the tonearm/shell or interface between them.
