    I have the same problem with my technics sl-d1 turntable, I have it hooked up to my amplifier (in the phono input). I know my amplifier is not the problem because we have it hooked up to other things and they all work fine,but there is no sound from the turntable other than a humming noise, could this be due to a bad cartridge? is there any test I can do myself to try and find out the problem?

    Yeah same sort of problem as with first post. 

    SL-B210 is plugged into my amp (yes it has an AUX/PHONO input) and it is also connected via the ground lead.  However I have to have the volume on the cambridge audio amp I have turn up full and then its not that loud................ Any suggestions would be fantastic.

    Do I have to use a pre amp unit it increase the volume?

I've had this happen before, and it is caused by your ground wire not being hooked up. Depending on the type and age of turntable, it will have an additional wire (the ground), that needs to be hooked up to either a screw or some sort of opening similar to your speaker wire hookup. That should take care of the problem. If you don't have a ground wire coming out of your turntable, I don't know how to help, other than figure out how to ground the turntable.

Can I add a turntable to my sehd501 technics system

All you need to add any deck is a spare phono socket on the system. This just needs to be two RCA jacks that will take either tape or CD type inputs. Even if you do not have a spare socket, due to it being used by something like a CD player. Then it's possible to get a switching box so you can connect both to the one socket. You will however also need to purchase a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp. This will connect between the deck and the spare socket. Otherwise the sound from the deck will be very low.
This will not be needed if the system does have a dedicated socket for a record player.
None of these accessories are expensive. And can be found on Amazon.

How do I attach and play a technics record deck to a technics DV250 amplifyer?

The problem you are facing is that the record player audio outputs has a left channel, a right channel and an earth or grounding cable. If this grounding cable isn't attached, you are likely to get a hum sound. I would suggest buying a record player RCA (Ground simulating) cable or you will have to buy an inexpensive mixer that supports record players through which you can channel this record player. Once you have all these, just follow the white and red color coding to attache the right channel to the right socket.

How do I connect my CD Player, Tape Deck and Tuner to the SU 300 Technics Amplifier

For connecting these to your amplifier you need 4 Stereo RCA Cable.
1.Connection for cd:
Take one of the RCA cable connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line out of your cd and connect the other end (red/white) to the CD input of Your amplifier.
2. Connecting the tunner:
Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line output of you Tuner and connect the other end (red/white) to the TUNER input of your amplifier.
3. Connectiong the tape deck:
Now you have two RCA cable. Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jacks to the PLAY out of the Tape deck and connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 play input of your amplifier.
Now connect the last RCA cable. Connect the one end (red/white) jack to the record input of the TAPE deck And connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 Record input of your amplifier.(this connection will help you to record to tape from cd or tuner. if you are not interested in recording then you can avoid this connection.)

Now you can select these three items from the frond plannel control switch of the amplifier.

How must I connect the amplifyer V500 with my computer for recording from a tape player?

I assume you want to record from tape to computer and monitor the recordings later.
Simple three steps.
1) Connect the tape deck line out ( or labeled PLAY ) to any one of the inputs like Aux / Tuner using an 2RCA connector.
2) Connect Rec out from the SUV' to line input of your PC ( blue socket ) sound card.
3) To monitor your PC sound after recording on to Hard Disc , connect a cable between the PC sound out ( green socket ) and the the SUV Tape monitor IN ( sometimes labeled PLAY ) Now comes the tricky partbobhifi_30.jpg.When you want to record on to your PC put the source switch on the SUV to where you have connected the Tape deck ( Aux / Tuner ). On the SUV keep the Tape Monitor switch to source ( released position ). After having done the recording to monitor and hear the Hard Disk playback turn on the Tape Monitor switch ( dipress it ). The pressing of the Tape switch on the SUV lets you toggle between the source and recording - In your case Tape deck and PC

Reorded tapes only play out one speaker

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.

Having a hard time connecting various audio components

Yes, it is a little tricky...

1) CD Changer (output) -> CD input on Amp

this is tricky... this will allow you to record to your tape deck, and control the sound via the EQ:
2) Tape Deck (tape out / recout) -> TAPE PLAYBACK on EQ
3) Tape RecOut on EQ -> Tape 1 Playback on Amp
4) Amp Tape 1 RecOut -> Tape Deck Playback / Input / RecIn
in essence, your creating a loop starting from the tape deck, going to the eq, then to the amp, then back to the tape deck to record.

Your EQ has another set of LINE IN and LINE OUT - use the second Tape 2 on the amp to create another loop. This will
allow you to control the EQ for any of the other sources.
5) LINE IN on EQ -> Tape 2 RecOut
6) Tape 2 Playback on Amp -> LINE OUT on EQ

5) Radio Tuner (output) -> Tuner input on Amp
6) DVD/VCR Combo Output -> AV/AUX on Amp

7) PC Computer... you don't have room for this. You can either use the PHONO input, and you'll have to purchase a Line Level Phono Converter
or, get a Y cable and split the signal and share with some other source.

Hope this helps.

First try cleaning the heads with some electronics grade alcohol and a static free cleaning swab...although it sounds like the head may need alignment...if those two things do not work out for you, the capstan motor might be the culprit.

Connection between CD, EQ, SP technics

Each unit (the EQ and the Processor) should have left/right in/out rca jacks as well as L/R tape in/outs. The EQ or processor use the receiver's tape loop and then provide a tape loop to replace the one they've used on the receiver.

You plug the first unit (let's say the Sound Processor into your receiver/amp as if it were a tape deck (Processor's outs connect to reciever's tape ins (play) while the Processor's ins connect to the receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you chain the EQ off the Processor in the same way (EQ outs connect to Processor's tape ins (play) and EQ ins connect to the Processor's tape outs (record).

Last you connect the tape deck to the EQ as follows. Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and the tape deck ins connect to the EQ's outs (record).

This will put both the Sound Processor and the EQ in the receiver's tape loop. In order to have all the receiver's source signals routed through them you may have to engage a Tape Monitor switch or button somwhere on your amp which will route the tape loop to your speakers.
