No sound from speakers when turntable playing records
All connections checked properly and the cassette deck, the cd player and the radio, from unit aiwa Z-L500 all play perfect through the speaker system.When you play a record you can hear it inside the unit but not the speakers.Also the equalizer switch under turntable mat is in on position and red and white cables from turntable to equalizer are correct.

Re: no sound from speakers when turntable playing records
Your turntable probably doesn't have a phono input. Perhaps you are using an aux or tape input. If that's the case, low sound and poor sounding music will result. You will need an external preamp that will raise the output level to that of a line level, and set the parameters for the equalization(RIAA) to give you the correct sound for a turntable. These preamps are sold most anywhere....try Radio Shack.

Amplifiers always take the sound of the turntable via a separate pre-amp from all other systems, such as radio and CD players. This pre-amp can go faulty killing the sound from the turntable only. If the turntable goes through the actions of playing the record, then this is the cause of your trouble.
Many portable 'boombox' recorders do not include a microphone for recording ambient sound, but can only record from one internal source to another, like radio or CD to Cassettte. Some do include an input jack for microphones or other audio sources, but you'll need to check your device's specs/ports to be sure.
your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary
Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck
check your cables to the units channel that doesn't work, for breaks. Does the cassette player play back a pre-recorded tape okay? if it doesn't there might be a internal fault.
Check the wires to the tape head to see if one is off.
As the majority is working ok and the audio section is likely to be shared with the tape, cd and tuner, the problem is most likely to be the switching to the record deck, the phono cartridge or the wiring or connections between the cartridge and amplifier.
I suggest you dust off your trusty multimeter and begin at the cartridge and work towards the amplifier.
Considering the price range of the system it is unlikely the tone arm will be fitted with a magnetic cartridge and most likely a piezo or ceramic cartridge will be fitted. If the arm is dropped onto the stylus of this type of cartridge the piezo crystal can easily be broken, often resulting in a much reduced output or no output at all. A typical output would be 500 mV to 1 volt...
