Question about Yamaha HTR-5740 Receiver

1 Answer

Can't seem to get any music from the turntable

The only time I get any sound with the turntable is if I turn it up to the top...and then there is considerable static (obviously). I have hooked my turntable up to my old system and it works, but not with this one...any ideas.

    Thanks for the quick feedback. I have the ground terminal on my old reciever, but not this Yamaha one. Any others solutions

    Thanks Smarthome 2

    My old receiver has a turntable input with a ground; however this Yamaha reciever does not have a dedicated turntable input; nor can I find any ground terminals other than for a FM/AM

Do you have the ground wire from the Turntable hooked up to the receivers ground terminal? it's a screw down silver nut and should be next to the Phono input. You are just lacking a ground from the turntable to the receiver. If you don't see a wire from the turntable, look around the chasis of the unit and you will fins it. Hope this helps

Why is there no music being transmitted from turntable to sound system?


If the amps connected to the deck have no dedicated "phono" socket / setting you will only hear weak sound. However you can get a magnetic cartridge pre-amp. This connects between the turntable and amp and makes the signal the same level as what would come off say a tape recorder.

The pre-amp has failed. Since you can hear the signal with the deck plugged into the amp that proves the cartridge and deck are working.

Check for grease on the platter or anywhere in the mechanism. Sometimes somebody has messed around with the speed preset, there might be two. You could try adjusting them. Sometimes they are found on the underside of the turntable, covered up, or they will be on the PC board of the deck.

Ambient sound is louder than the music


Hi,
I have a Mac (OS X 10.5.7) and had the same problem with the Ion TTUSB system picking up room noise. This seemed to fix it: 
In System Preference, under Hardware, choose "Sound".
Choose "Input".
Under "Choose a device for sound input" choose USB Audio CODEC  type: USB

I hope this helps,
Cheers!

Turntable power seems to be lightly surging


Sounds like a voltage regulator on the mothboard is going out. Avoid going in there, you really could fry yourself poking around in there. Check out these guys. They're top notch
