Sony ps lx2 volume problem

I recently acquired a sony ps lx2 turntable. I have no problems playingrecords, but it seems that every set of speakers I've plugged theplayer into, the volume is extremely low (almost inaudible) so you haveto have your ear right up next to the speaker in order to hear anymusic, even with the volume on the speaker is turned all the way up.How can I remedy this problem?

SOURCE: Low volume on PS LX250h

This turntable has a built in pre-amp, under the platter is a on-off switch. Turn it to "on".

SOURCE: problems connecting turntable to amplifier

I hope you have it connected to the Phono input on the left rear of the receiver. Otherwise the minute signal generated by the phono cartridge is too small for the other inputs to process.

The buzzing noise/bad channel is probably a bad connection in the tonearm/headshell connection or one of the 4 wires attaching the cartridge to the shell. If you DON'T want to blow up your speakers, TURN YOUR RECEIVER OFF, turn the volume to 0 or select another input before messing around with the tonearm.

Swap the two channels from the tonearm to the Phono connectors to prove the buzzing is external (at the turntable). I think the Dual CS415 uses the old standard headshell. With the volume down flip the lever toward the back, carefully remove the assembly and look over the tiny multi-colored wires with the brass crimp-on ends. We're looking for tight kinks or broken wires. Then put it back. maybe reseat it a few times to wear off any oxidation and try it again.

SOURCE: I can't hear music through computer speakers.

Have you selected a different setting in the audio control section of your computer? For example: wave out, instead of line in or vice versa. Is the audio control input set low?

I recently acquired an old sony turntable ps 2310. I tested it in an instrumental musics. And it sounds ok. But when i took it home and played music with vocals. They all sound chipmunklike.

You have bad earth connections to the cartridge, or faulty earth connections on the jack to the unit. Might have come loose when you moved it.

When playing records on my turntable, the right speaker often cuts out, almost completely (big dip in volume and a bit fuzzy sounding). It will then come back sometimes, when tapiing, fiddling with a the...

Check the wires to the cartridge, they can come lose and need to be tight. If that doesn't solve the problem check or replace the connecting cables. You can confirm it's not the pre-amp of your amp by just swaping the cables. Then the left speaker should play up. If it is still the right, then there's a fault on the pre-amp. But it could be just bad soldering somewhere. Also take the bottom of the turntable and check the soldering of the cables inside it.

Just look around the web for a "Magnetic Cartridge Preamp".
You plug your turntable into this and the preamp in an aux socket of Surround Amp and the sound will be the same level as the other devices.

Ps-lx 430 1 speaker gives low volume. Otherwise speakers work with other components

This is an old-school turntable so it requires a PHONO input on the amplifier (or a Phono Preamplifier). It will not produce either enough volume or the correct frequency response without it. Google Phono RIAA

For the Sony PS-LX350H screeching turn table, where would I put the silicone grease? On the center spindle? That is the only moving part I see other than the spindle that turns the belt and I don't think...

Stay away from the belt and any surfaces it touches with that grease. Don't even touch them with bare fingers.

You need to identify the part(s) that are causing the screech before wailing on it wit h grease.

Is it a physical sound heard directly from the TT or is it a screech through the speakers (indicating feedback or audio signal distortion)?

Take the platter of and look for a reason if it's a physical problem. Look for signs of scraping. Manually rotate the platter base CW and listen.

If the screech is electronic, turn the volume down and/or get the TT away from speakers. Clean the stylus.

Tremendous Rumble when using my new turntable

its more like your turntable needs to be isolated from surrounding interference? try putting foam or dense rubber under the feet and make sure its not anywhere near a speaker as this wil cause immense rumble problems? it may be your carridge on this new deck is way more sensitive than your previos set up and therefore needs isolation for the best results?

Sony ps-lx2 turntable clicks when spinning

It seems something may have come loose over time or history, but you will have to delve inside to see what it is. It sounds as though the fault should be obvious.

If you do not want to do this, a repair shop should have no problem. I assume that the deck is working ok otherwise.
