I have a hcdh771 compact system and I want to add a Sony ps-lx52p turn table. Can you please help me do this.

You need to buy a phono preamp to add in between the LP player and the music system. Can connect the LP player output to the phono preamp input and output of the preamp to the aux input of music system.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Where do I connect a turntable to the AVR132? Do I require a phono preamp - if so where does this connect into the receiver?

Most amps / receivers that lack an input specifically labeled "Phono" will require a preamp for the low output that originates from turntables with modern, MAGNETIC cartridges. If your cartridge is a *much* older (1960 ~1985) CERAMIC type, it will not likely need a preamp as the output is greater than a magnetic type.

You should select an unused stereo (left & right) INPUT device such as "VID2" Connect the output of the preamp to these jacks and the turntable should be connected to the preamp input as per manufacturer's instructions.

What kind of pre amp do i need to operate my parasound HCA-2205A high current power amp

Any preamp should work. A preamp goes into your system between the amp and the other components which plug into it- CD player, FM tuner, Turntable.....etc. It's takes their output signal, processes it as my be Volume, bass, treble... and then send a sufficient signal to the amp to drive the amp to power your speakers. As long as the preamp output is enough for your Amps input any will work as most will be.

How do i attatch preamp to marantz sr9200 for phono

If you are talking about a phono preamp, take the output rca cables from the turntable, "red and white" plug it into the preamp input, "labled" next take a red and white cable wire male ends, "3 to 6" feet long, and plug the one end in the output of the preamp, "labled" and finally plug the remainder into the AUX input of the Marantz receiver matching the colour codes so the left and right channels don't get mixed up, you now should be good to go.

I have a Pioneer VSX-515 6.1 system and I am trying to hook up my phono to it. I am not sure which input to use. Right now the only input I have is my CD player.

Like many newer receivers, this model doesn't have a phono input. I guess manufacturers think nobody listens to vinyl today. You can still hook a turntable to one of the extra audio inputs on this unit, but you'll need a phono preamp. The output level from the turntable is too low to drive a "line level" input directly, and the preamp boosts and equalizes the signal so it will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp; you can order online or find it in some of their stores. Many other sources are available online, and if you have a good stereo shop in your area they probably stock one. Plug the turntable to the preamp input, connect the preamp output to the receiver and that's it. You'll also need an AC outlet nearby as the preamp needs power.

I own a Fisher X-202-B tube amp which I have restored with new caps. It played very well for 2 weeks,then one input section suddenly went dead. It doesnt matter if I use tuner,AUX or phono,there is zero...

i) It is possible that one of the electrolytics has been put in with wrong polarity. Check in the faulty channel preamp. It may have caused the HT to collapse in that preamp section - look for burnt resistor.

ii) Also compare the corresponding voltage on the anodes of the preamp valves in the working & non-working channels. This will tell you which area is faulty.

Some where there is a button to switch between a powered AMP and a Nonpowered AMP. Can you Tell me Where to Do that??

I might need some clarification on your question and what you are needing this receiver to do . But let me take a shot at this. Your amp has a powered output via the speaker terminals and a preamp output via your record output rca jack or any other rca jacks label preamp out or preout. I is no switch to turn your power amp on while leaving your preamp on, but you can switch the speaker a and or b switch off if you like. If you are refering to a powered subwoofer set up you would connect this to your preamp subwoofer out jack then very the level with the subwoffers volume control. You might need more detail in your question if this is not what your looking for.
