Dear pap 55,
The feet are removable, can be open. To check the dead set you donot need to open it. Remove the power cord from the wall socket, check the contnuity with multimeter of the two pin plug after switching on power switch of the system.

Magnetic phono cartridges like the one on your pioneer has an output of about .005 Volts, the standard inputs are looking for 1 to 2 volts for fulol out put, the phono preamp will step up the output voltage to 1 volt so you can play it thru a non phono input like Aux, tape or tuner.
Radio shack sells cheap ones and you will hear what you pay for.

I think we need to do more diagnosis. Did you try swapping the channel cables Left-to-Right so you're sure it is in the TT and not in your Phono preamp?
If it's still in the TT and always on the same channel with two different cartridges you probably have a wire problem in the tonearm/shell or interface between them.

Try changing out the capacitor on the underside of the platter. They will lose their rated value over time.......
The schematic shows a 1000 volt rating. I have three that I am referbing and all of them came from Pioneer with a 450 volt CAP.
Try replace it with one that is rated at least 450 volts.
Also - the closer the tolerance the better. See if you can find one that has a K rating, meaning it is +- 10%. The M rated ones are +-20%.

+ is on center pin, and the current consumption is low, not more than 200mA. A 12V wall-wart will do fine.
