You need to run that black wire to ground, perhaps a screw on your electrical outlet. You also need a pre-amp with your turntable, I use the mcm 40-630 you can find it many places for sale.

Low sound from speakers sl1600 auto turntable.. preamp needed? Possible bad Rca's?


No. The RCA jacks are fine. Most likely, you are not using an amplifier with a PHONO input. A CD, DVD, AUX, etc.input if used, will give you a very low sound and poor frequency response(sounds tinny and low). You will need a PHONO preamp that can raise the output of the turntable to match that of the higher level, 300mv inputs mentioned above and have correction for the RIAA decoding to make the music sound correct. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

No sound being amplified through RCA jacks... I can hear it coming off the literal record player, barely, but when plugged into receiver, there is no sound being transmitted to the speakers. Could the...


The first thing to do is uplug the jacks and put your finger on the input to the amp. If it buzzers then the amp is working. If the turntable has jacks pluged into it pull them out and touch the end of them too!
If you can't do that, then disconect the wires to the cartridge, with the amp on touch each wire (one at a time). You should hear a buzz on two wires (left & right) and nothing on the other two. If you don't then the cables are faulty or the amp is. If you do then the cartridge has gone.

I have a turntable...an Music Hall MMf5 that I bought for my husband. i dont know how to connect it up to speakers so that we can actually use it...can someone help???


If it has RCA jacks (white and red jacks) coming from the unit it needs to be connected to the inputs of a stereo amplifier of receiver to produce sound. Most AM/FM receivers have inputs for phono in back. Just plug the cords into the inputs for phono and put your selection knob on your stereo to the phono setting.

My turntable has no sound when my mixer is switch to the 'stereo' setting however when I switch it to 'mono' its a low or bad sound quality. Why is that?


At the back of your mixer you should have a switch to change the frequency for a turntable. Also make sure you have the turntable's earth (ground) wire connected.

Very low sound comming out pioneer pl300


Hi Jack.

Just confirm that it is plugged into a PHONO input (designed for turntables) Cannot use AUX/TAPE etc type inputs. If not, you will need an RIAA preamp from local electronics/Audio store. If that is OK, then try replace stylus first and the cartridge (may be just easier to do both same time). No volume control in turntables and it can only be 3 things (generally) Input, stylus, cartridge

Best of luck

How did the internal wiring come out? Was it pulled, does it look like someone attempted to repair it, and didn't do a good job? Unfortunately, you have to open up the unit to see where exactly those wires were removed from. Those are the tonearm wires, which attach to the PCB which distributes the sound to the RCA cables. If those were pulled out from the tonearm, you have to have the entire tonearm replaced (not diy work). If it came loose from the board - VERY ODD that all 5 cables came loose, but it was bought on ebay, so anything is possible - you need to open up the turntable and solder the cables back (easier said than done). Yes, the black wire is the ground. I suggest you take it to a qualified service center for a diagnosis. You might be able to recover the costs from the seller. Hope you didn't leave any feedback as of yet. It might be the only thing you can hold over the seller's head.
