Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi, daughter has been taking about vinyl; so good idea to play some classic records. Turntable has been up in loft and has not been used for years. Nope; turntable is working; phonos connected to auxiliary, but no sound. I have a Naim 5i integrated amp and Naim 5i CD player. Any ideas? Thanks Colin
If the amp does not have a dedicated sockets for a turntable - often marked "phono". Then plugging it into an aux socket won't work. You will need to get a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp. The turntable plugs into this and that plugs into your aux socket. If at the present you turn up the volume really loud you might just hear the record playing. That will tell you that the cartridge is OK.

This happened to me tonight. I had the same problem, to activate the player on you need to move it to the right until you hear a click. If you don't do it it won't start. Even if all the power is on. This should fix everything!

Most common problem is the belt getting soft, especially if it has sat for a long time. It will get a weak spot where it sat on the drive pulley and every time the turntable goes around and hits that weak spot it will slow down a little making it sound like a warped album.
The belts are usually very easy to replace. Usually just lift off the turntable or there might be a small clip on the center pin, then it lifts off. Replacement belts can be ordered from several places, as shown in this search... http://www.google.com/search?&q=SL-B200+Technics+turntable+belt

this turntable absolutely came with a ground wire that must connect to the gnd connection on the amp. maybe it got torn off or something but there should be clues on the back of the turntable as to what happened to it.
once the lead is found it must be connected to the amp gnd connect to get rid of the hum. this might require someone with soldering skilz or what have you in order rig up a new wire.
a tech might have to remove the bottom and solder in a new wire if it is cut or ripped off at the housing. This is common as people forget to unhook the gnd wire from the amp when moving things around.
