Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
I have a Technics SL-L3, that was hit by lighting or an energy surge about 15 years ago. It worked fine up to that point. After the incident, the turntable will play records, but there is no sound through the amp. If I just let the record play, about half way through it, the sound on the left speaker comes through. It goes in and out (like when some one is messing with the speaker cable). Then about 2 mins later, the right speaker comes in. Both speakers are working and the record is playing. But if I turn up the sound I get a really loud static sound in the background. I already switched the inputs its hooked to on the amp, and the problem still occurs. I know for sure it is not the amp, because I have video systems hooked up to it and it sounds fine.
Either the cartridge is bad in the phonograph tone arm. Or the pre-amp in the stereo is bad...remember that the turntable is the only accessory that uses the pre-amp input on the stereo. I'm betting the pre-amp is bad.
