Hi, if your not plugged into your amp via a dedicated phiono input, Ie CD or Aux then you need a preamp to boost the line levels. Cheers john. Styluscity

SOURCE: Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable i need to replace the on off switch on a mk2 technics 1200 any

The part is located HERE - but you will have to take apart your turntable from the bottom in order to replace it. It's not very hard, but if your not mechanically inclined, I would not suggest doing it, as you could cause more damage.

You need a belt.. Lift up the record support..(platter) Underneath you will see a metal post.. Belt goes around that and the bottom of the plate.(there is a rim) . If the belt is there, motor might be bad..

SOURCE: i PURCHASED A LIKE NEW TECHNICS SL BD27 TURNTABLE.

Yes you need a pre amp

It would also be the same if you connected it to a computer to record an LP to CD. Mine is a little different and has one already built in that I can switch in and out of line.

Try spend a little more if you can as many pre amps can introduce noise.

You may also want to check that the turntable is properly grounded to prevent noise too

The volume on technics SL-BD22 turntable will not turn up and stays at one volume


Since the turntable itself doesn't have a volume control the problem is with the amp it is connected to. It should be connected to an amp with a dedicated phono socket. It's no use connecting it to a tape or aux or CD socket. These sockets do not have a built in pre-amp for the magnetic cartridge. If your amp doesn't have a dedicated phono socket then you can buy a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp that will plug into a tape socket etc on the amp and have the deck plugged into it. If plugged into a none dedicated socket though you can hear it, the volume will be very low compared to other sources. If you have got it plugged into a dedicated phono socket and the volume is still low, then the internal built pre-amp inside your amp for the deck has failed and will need to be repaired. The pre-amp failure will not effect any other functions of the amp.

Hello. I've tried a couple of amps now, and I still seem to be getting a very quiet volume output, even when the levels are high. I'm also getting no lows through the sub.


Hello,the first thing that comes to mind may be obvious but i have to state that the unit must be plugged into a phono jack only.These are scarce now but are required because the turntable needs extra amplification that standard inputs dont provide.

Does my turntable need a new cartridge? I have a Technics SL DD22 which hasn't been used in a while. I hooked it up to a Bose receiver which works fine (hooked up an i pod to it before) & it plays...


The output from any regular turntable is far too low for most amplifiers to handle. You need to either run the output through a pre-amplifier first to bring the signal up to line output levels suitable for most recording devices and amplifiers or run it into an integrated amplifier which includes the pre-amp stage.

If your Bose receiver specifically includes a turntable input then it has a pre-amp built in, but as so few folks use turntables any more very few devices have the correct input. Pre-amps are still easy to obtain and can be very cheap, but cheap ones produce a noisy and unpleasant output which is magnified by the amplifier. If ever there's a choice to be made, spend the money on the pre-amp and go budget on the main amp.

I hope that I've saved you wasting money on something you didn't need. Please take a moment to rate my free answer.

Distorted sound on Technics SL-1200/1210


You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

Pl 200 very low volume and where to hook up ground wire


Use the "mic" input on the amp. This unit does not have a "pre-amp"
It has a high-impedence output.

If your amp has a "pre-amp" input, plug it in there.


"mic" = microphone.

Low volume after refitting belt on Technics SL-BS22B turnrable


check also the wire connections on the pickup head, don't forget to check the connections for the same wires inside the turntable, see if you have a bad solder contact to the output terminals, also check the terminals themselves for any dirt/oxydation (i assume they are RCA's, and they DO loose contact if you plug them in and out a lot). Also check RCA's at the amp end.

good luck

Low volume and unbalanced deck


Turntables require amplification, they have very low output on their own. If your Sherwood has an Aux input try using that, older receivers often had a built-in pre-amp on the aux jack. You can obtain a stand alone pre-amp for less than $50, I use one from mcm, #40-630.

Volume


Please let me know how your turntable is connected to the music system. I mean, to which input ? (Tape/Aux/Phono/VCR/CD) ?
