Question about Sony PS-LX250H Turntable
I just sent my parents an SONY PSLX300H TURNTABLE that I bought on EBay. When they plug in the right channel it works. If they plug in just the left channel it works. But if they plug in both, thge sound disappears. As far as I can tell (over the phone) they are doing everything right and it's not the amp. Is there some turntable specific issue here that I'm not thinking about?
This sounds suspiciously like the wiring of the cartridge is wrong or something is shorted together. The cause should be visible.
Taking special care to NOT touch the stylus itself in this operation:
Turn the locking collar and remove the cartridge assembly in its shell from the tonearm.
Flip the assembly over and examine the four wires under a magnifying glass for disconnections, kinks, crimps, or metal-to-metal contact between any of them. They should each attach to a pin exiting straight out from the cartridge.
The wires are also color coded as are the terminals. If they're wrong you could have various sonic malfunctions.
Correcting miswires is delicate and I would recommend taking the turntable and stylus to a pro for that part.
