Marantz 6300 turntable - no sound.

I have a Technics SL1300 running through Sony integrated amp with no problems. I unplug the SL1300 from phono input and plug in Marantz 6300 - no sound. Change headshells - both headshells work on the Technics, neither headshell gives audio on the Marantz.

SOURCE: Headshell for Denon DP-45F Turntable

The PCL-30 does not look like a standard headshell. I doubt the above answer is correct.

SOURCE: Dual 1009. No audio from the stylus & humming.

I can help with this issue. To keep the platter spinning in manual mode, you have to cue the tonearm up and move it so it is over the record. Then flip the lever to manual. It should stay on in this position. This is a feature and not a bug.

Regarding the audio / humming problem. The Duals had what was known as a muting circuit that engages as the turntable is cycling between rest and play. The fact that you are getting no sound may be an indication that the muting circuit is still engaged. Here are a few things you can try:

1. If the unit was recently shipped, you may need to reset the mechanical function of the turntable. You can do this by locking down the tonearm to the tonearm rest, turning on the power and then flipping the lever for a full automatic cycle. The tonearm will stay fixed to the rest, but the remainder of the mechanical system underneath will be reset to proper positioning (this is detailed in the Dual manual). Of course, this assumes that everthing was OK prior to shipping.

2. Make sure your cartridge is properly mounted with a good stylus, check your tonearm wires (both in the headshell and underneath the turntable and finally, see if you can get underneath the turntable while you run an automatic cycle to see what is going on.

Lastly, if you can't get it going, Check out Bill at www.fixmydual.com He worked on my 1019 and knows them inside and out.

Good Luck,

Jerry

SOURCE: Tonearm Weight, Good Replacement Stylus, Gain level

Most good turntables will track with weights between 1.25 and 1.5 grams. Any more than that and you are putting alot of pressure on the needle. Experiment a bit and make sure that the needle tracks well and that the sound is good. The less weight you use, the longer the needle will last and the less wear on the record.

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

Technics SL1300 replacement stylus


Your amp must have a dedicated phono socket, otherwise you will need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to hear it playing, via an aux socket on your amp.

The cartridge will have a make and number on it, put that into Google and it will find the stylus. If your cartridge is old or faulty. You can replace it with any other make you want. Most will fit the deck. With cartridges the more expensive it is the better the sound, generally unless it's just a well known brand or something just to be flashy!

Kenwood turntable no sound?


Are you using a magnetic "PHONO" input on your amp/receiver, or just a line/aux input? The 'good' turntables from the 70's - 80's used magnetic catridges with a very low level output - you will need a phono preamp in order to hear the turntable. Only phonos (Crosly) that use ceramic catridges generate enough voltage without a preamp. Good luck and let me know if that answered your question.

Cannot hook up sound to surround sound , everything else works, cd player, radio, tapedeck. just the turntable does not work. any suggestions? deb


Hi, you need to connect the turntable to your amp via a phono input connection. If no phono input available then a pre amp needs to be used between turntable and amp to up the signal. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

I recently bought this turntable used. I am trying to connect it to a Sony receiver with a phono input, but no sound comes out when connected. Does this turntable require a pre-amp or something?


If the unspecified Sony has a "PHONO" input you should be good to go. What model?

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify and frequency-correct the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge. Look up RIAA equalization.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection AND your TT doesn't have a self-contained preamp you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

eBay always has some...

We want to connect a SL-B5 to a sourround system and the sound its not coming out what should we do?


is your surround system has a phono input? because most of the turntable can only work with the unit that has a phono input, phono input has a a built-in pre-amp. so if you're only hooking your turntable to an ordinary input then this might be the case, you won't hear any sound or sometimes weak sound.

Technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver


The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.
