Hi, if you are connecting to your amp via a CD or Aux input then you will need a preamp. Cheers john/ Stylus City

Any of the following cartridges will fit your turntables:

CARTRIDGES @ 1200s.com

I don't suggest using the originals that came with the turntables, as they aren't of the greatest quality. For a small investment (about $50), you can get some better quality cartridges/needles.

Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"

If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.

Hope it helps

It will need earthing if you are getting hum. As it is used I would replace the entire cartridge and stylus with the best you can afford. Make certain you wire it up right. A good test is with the cartridge removed and your amp on, is to touch each wire (one at a time) with your finger. You should hear a buzz on two wires (one left one right) and nothing on the other two wires (earths). This will help you get the new one connected right.

If the amp doesn't have an imput marked phono, or deck, or turntable, the answer is yes. Search for a 'magnetic cartridge pre-amp' via google.

Very low sound after new needle installed


Firstly the cartridge could be faulty or incorectly wired. I think what you are refering to is a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. If the turnatable has seperate audio connectors these should be plugged into the "phono" socket. And not an "aux" or "CD" input. If there is no phono socket, you wouldn't be able to plug a pre-amp in anyway. Yes the deck if it is built in should have this pre-amp built in. However these pre-amp can fail!
To test if the pre-amp is working, even if has no phono socket, unclip the leads to the cartridge. With your amp on, touch the end of each wire with your finger. On two you should hear a buzz - one for each channel. If it's not loud then there's a problem with the pre-amp. If you do get a decent buzz the cartridge is faulty.
You can also trace the wiring to the pre-amp inside the unit, if you wish to fix it. It will almost certainly end up at an IC, which should be replaced.

JVC auto return turntABLE - mODEL al-a95bk


when you said "no sound enough to enjoy listening" did you mean that you could hear something coming thru the speakers, but it isn't loud enough? if so, you may be plugging the turntable into a "ceramic" phono input on your stereo. it may be that your stereo doesn't have a pre-amplifier on the phono inputs. Ceramic tonearm cartridges (the part that holds the stylus - which you may call the needle) have enough output level to drive an amplifier. if your cartridge is magnetic, the output is very low compared o the ceramic. the trade off is that magnetic cartridges have a much wider dynamic range than the ceramic, and when properly pre-amplified, sound MUCH better than a ceramic unit. you can probably find a separate pre-amp at radio shack (i know they sold them several years ago). you plug the turntable into the inputs of the pre-amp, then plug the pre-amps output into your stereo. hope this helps.

Will the real wheel of a ttr 225 fit on a ttr 230?


If they are both 18 inch wheels then you should have no problem. To be sure contact your local dealer with the years of both bikes.

Only one channel plays.


If you disconect the wires to the cartridge and with deck plugged in to the amp and switched on, you can touch the ends of the wires with your finger. Though there are four wires, only two should produce a buzz, one in the left, one in the right speakers. If you get a buzz in each channel, the rest of the unit is working fine and you have a faulty cartridge or a poor connection to it. If one channel remains dead, then you have a problem in the wires to your amp or an internal fault inside the deck. If internal I suggest you remove the bottom of the turntable and have a look around.

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.

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.
