Power supply Sony PS-LX10


Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum.

G'day, There is a little switch underneath the turntable mat, it can either be on 230 or 115. During a setup for a party, one of my friends switched it over to 115 (obviously on 230 previously). Now the...


That switch is the mains voltage selector and you friend just switched it the USA voltage setting! So it sent 230 volts to a device inside your deck which only takes 115 volts! If it doesn't come on when placed back on 230 volts, then if you are lucky a fuse might have blown! Check the one in the plug, then take the bottom off the turntable and see if you can see one inside. If your not lucky it might have destroyed parts of the power supply of the turntable, perhaps the transformer. And if your in a country that uses mains of 220 to 250 volts turning that switch to 115 is the self destruct with that power applied!!!

I received the turntables and mixer but Im having trouble installing everything together. Is there any companies that can help you install the turntables, mixer, and speakers


Not to worry if you can take some pains and be confident. First of all arrange the turntable, the mixer, the amplifiers and the speakers. Connect the turntables two RCA pins to the PHONE pins L and R. of the mixer. Using another set of RCA cables to connect the output of the mixer to the amplifier's AUX inout L and R. Try to connect the red and white in accordance to the L&R. The speakers should be cconnected to the left and right of the amplifier's main. if you have front and rear use them but connect with the polarity of the red and black polarity . Use a good power supply multipin unit to connect all the power. Do not switch on until you have checked once again. Now switch on and play your favourite record. DO take time to do and you will suceed. Good day

Cannot power up turntable


There's not much to a turntable power supply. The most common fault is the power switch is broken. An internal fuse could have failed, the transformer dead and other power supply faults. You might want to take the bottom off and have a look inside.

Technics SL-1200MK5 voltage or fuse problem


To change it from the 110 to 220 the switch is under the turntable platter. Put your fingers in the 2 holes under the slip matts and pull up evenly. It may be a little hard but it will come off. As for the fuse...its inside the deck. Unscrew the feet and all the screws. the black rubber part will come off. Good luck!

Pitch is not working correctly


a) "dirty" main power switch, comes from sparking when power switch has been used a lot (happens also with some CD/DVD players - makes them loose some power - consequently, focus and/or spindle will not work properly). Try cleaning it up or replacing it (bypassing it will tell you if the switch is really the problem).

b) bad contact on the speed control slider (try moving it while slightly pressing it downwards, see if there is any change, if there is, have it cleaned up or replaced)

c) a problem with electronic speed control, possibly a loose solder connection or a bad capacitor somewhere in the speed control circuitry. If the circuit has fuses in it check if they are all ok. I once had a problem with a turntable that had a fuse "partially" blown (people were using the turntable a lot for "scratching" which overheated the fuse but hadn't blown it out, yet it changed in resistance from zero ohms to a few hundred ohms - the turntable began to **** and the speed was changing).

d) none of the above, it could be something else that i can't think of right now

hope ya get it workin'

Tonearm not emitting signal into Serato


there is a switch that cuts off the signal when the tone arm docks.check the wiring is not broken inside and that the switch is ok.typically,red green white black red and white are plus and left ground is green and right ground is black.the collar that screws on to the head unit has 4 pins.make sure the contacts are clean.measure the wires one at a time from the tone arm to the rca plugs on the back.the green and black go to the outside collars,and the red and white go to the center pin of the rca plugs

Your best bet is to get a good quality switch contact cleaner to clean all the contacts on the speed control switches.
I guess the contacts inside the switches will have corroded slightly with your turntable having been stored in the garage.

Muffled sound


HELLO!
I don't think the problem is the actual stylus (needle), it sounds like the magnetic cartridge has become faulty in some way (it does happen). My advice is try another cartridge and stylus (borrow if you can). If the audio stays the same then it MAY be the wiring in the arm going through the plinth (deck) and these wires terminate to pins or a small pcb board in the turntable where the phono cables and arm wires are connected. There may be a bad connection inside.
Also, make sure your tonearm counterweight and anti-skate are set up properly as well as this can have an effect on audio.
I hope this helps as I have been into audio since I was a kid!

Phono chord pins broken off


parties can be rough on audio gear
most turntables I've seen have male rca (phono) plugs on each end, but you have to get to the inside either by taking off the bottom or in some cases the body comes apart in two halves. If you get there and it turns out to be a solder on type (not likely) you can get the tails at radio shack. Most people with any audio equipment at all have an rca stereo pair lying around somewhere.
OR
if you can solder, you can just put new rca ends on the existing cable . Good luck.
at least he didn't break your needle
