Usually, on Technics turntables, the ground wire is attached to a ground lug on the receiver.

SOURCE: Where is the ground wire connected to on the Technics SL-BD27?

You will more than likely need to wire it up from the inside of the unit, unfortunately. Parts for this model are discontinued. You can also try an iPod cable. As the size is a 1/8" plug - same as an iPod cable, then just cut the other end, and ground to your receiver.

SOURCE: Technics SL-BD22 ground wire does not reduce hum. Any solutions?

I have found out that the female phono plugs on the turntable are sensative and have to have a solid connection and often adjusted from time to time to eliminate the 60 cycle hum.

I dont have the orginal ground wire for my Technics SL-BD20D turntable someone told me i could use rca cables to ground it, i have a pre amp cause my main amp didnt have phono jacks on the back of it.

You don't need the original ground wire for Technics SL-BD20D turntable,
any plain cable can be used for this purpose...
you should connect turntable to your pre amp,should be a "phone" input at the back...
here are some suggestions for grounding....
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    One of my DJ turntables = only left side stereo sound

    need to narrow it down, using 1 turn table ONLY with the mixer on channel 1 (the chanel that is working) to test reciever is working properly and sound working on both side of the speakers, this eliminate the first turn table. Next, disconnect the working turn table (1) and connect your second turn table to the same chanel and see if you getting the sound coming chanel 1 just as your first turn table did. If you getting sound coming out from turn table on ch1 than is not the turn table issue. It will be you mixer having problems. You cant solve the problems having everything connected. Testing one turn table at a time using working chanel on the mixer to see if both turn table working properly. If you use the same chanel testing both turn table and the second one does not work than it will be one of your turn table is faulty. Note: if you find and test both of your turn table is working properly than it will be your mixer. good luck and hope that help..

    New RCAS on Technics 1200 Getting a Loud Buzzing Noise

    It is not suggested that you remove the ground cable. Performing the mod for the ground by soldering a bridge on the circuit board doesn't really do anything either than remove that buzz/ground hum. You've essentially removed the wire that grounds the turntable cabinet to the earth. The buzz is gone, but now your turntable is no longer grounded properly.

    I would suggest replacing the ground cable to it's original state, then attach the Monster cables.

    If this does not work, then either there is an issue with the soldering to the board, or the board itself might be damaged. You might want to look at the trace paths to make sure none are lifted, or damaged in any way on the board. Another issue might be faulty tonearm wires or not properly soldered wires.

    FYI, monster cables are not good for this purpose. I would suggest the following cables:

    Technics SL-BD22 ground wire does not reduce hum. Any solutions?

    presuming it has "some" effect, then gnd wire itself it good. Even though there may be a gnd thumbscrew on the preamp try slipping the ground wire under a screw on the main amp or receiver that screws into metal and make sure the gnd wire is touching metal under the screw.

    if that didn't help, then you may have:
    >a cartridge with an open gnd internally.
    >an open gnd wire from the back of the cartridge to the outer shields of the RCA connectors.
    >or your neutral & hot wires of your house wiring might be reversed causing something weird.
    >a low quality preamp. (it should have a seperate wall adaptor so that only low voltage dc goes near the preamp)
    good luck ground issues can be tough!

    Connect turntables(technics SL1210MK5) to a mixer?

    None. The cables are already attached to the turntable. They are hard wired to the unit. The red & White cable. Just connect to the PHONO INPUT on your DJ MIXER, and connect the thin ground wire to the GROUND terminal on the mixer. That's it your ready to go.
