Poor sound quality from a technics SL-D210

Generally either a faulty connection to a lead or cartridge. Or a faulty Cartridge. If you switch the left and right channels of the phono leads the missing sound should move to the left and the right come to life. If it does not then there's a fault in the magnetic cartridge pre-amp in your amp.

Although my turntable seems to be fine there is hardly any sound coming through my amp/speakers from it. I'm using a different power lead for it since I've lost my original but it fits fine an

your needle has worn down, or the RCA leads(red & white) arn't plugged in to the phono socket on the amp,or you haven't selected phono on the source select,or you have the tape monitor button switched on.

Sound only from left side speakers!

If you put the good channel from the deck into the right and then left phono imputs of your amp, the sound should come out from the left and right speakers. If it only comes out from the left, then the amp as a right hand channel fault. Now if other devices work on both channels, then it's the pre-amp for the phono socket that has a fault on it. You should be able to find this by following the wires from the phono socket. If you touch around that pre-amp you should get it to buzz on either channel (where it joins with the main pre-amp). Doing this with a screwdriver will pin-point where the faulty part is (working backwards). PS don't short anything by touching to bits of metal together with the screwdriver.
Magnetic cartridges need a small pre-amp before they can be past to the main pre-amp. That's why you can't hear anything with the deck plugged into another line socket.
If you get signal on both left and right speakers with the above test the deck is to blame.

I have a SL-Q5 turntable, after hocking it up to the soundsystem it plays but no sound is coming out from the speakers ... what could i be doing incorrectly?

are you putting the left and right ( white and red ) phono connectors into the phono inputs on the back of the amp? thats the place to locate them. either that or the leads from the turntable are both damaged but i doubt that is the cause? check your inputs on the back of the amp to see if it has phono inputs? if not you might have to insert them in the auxillary input and buy a small pre-amp from a hi-fi shop to boost the signal? good luck

Sony PS-LX300USB Turntable, one channel not working

Have you tried swopping over the output leads from the turntable to the amp (normally one red and one white phono plug) so they are in each others socket? If you do this and you still get no sound from the right channel it is almost certain to be a faulty amp,or speaker.
If you swop and get no sound from the LEFT channel it is could be either a faulty lead or cartridge.

No sound comming from the speakers

Assuming you have plugged it into your mixer first, be sure that you:
A) matched the red and white RCA cable heads with the red and white input port on the mixer and output ports on the CDJ.
B) make sure you've plugged in to the "Line" ports, not the "phono" ports on one channel of your mixer.
C) lastly, make sure your headphones are plugged into the headphone jack of the mixer, have the "monitor" volume turned up, have the correct channel selected and make sure the channel selector switch is set to the same channel your CDJ is plugged into.
That should do it.

** sound

First and foremost, make sure you plug into directly to the PHONO input of your receiver. If your unit does not have a PHONO input, then you wont be able to hear much coming from the unit. The PHONO input is a pre-amplified input, and this turntable requires an amplified input in order to transmit it's signal correctly. Just using an AUX or LINE IN will not have enough power to increase the signal of the turntable. You have the option of purchasing a PHONO PRE-AMPLIFIER (range in price from US$15-30), or purchasing a new receiver with a PHONO INPUT!

If you have it connected to your phono input, and still no sound, your turntable may have either faulty RCA cables (red/white cables), or a bad tonearm - in either case will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.
