I have an old JVC AL-A158 turntable with no receiver or speaker. There is an attached wire with a white and red plug. A record plays, but the sound is very low. What do I do to get sound? Thanks!

The "attached wire with a white and red plug" should be connected to an amplifier.

SOURCE: record only plays through one speaker

If it works on Channel One it is NOT the TT. It's a mixer problem. Define the mixer and what else works or doen't work. have you tried another device on Channel 2?

SOURCE: When playing records on my turntable, the right

Check the wires to the cartridge, they can come lose and need to be tight. If that doesn't solve the problem check or replace the connecting cables. You can confirm it's not the pre-amp of your amp by just swaping the cables. Then the left speaker should play up. If it is still the right, then there's a fault on the pre-amp. But it could be just bad soldering somewhere. Also take the bottom of the turntable and check the soldering of the cables inside it.

My Al 300 jvc no sound coming from turntable to speaker cassette radio working OK


Unplug the red and white leads. With the amp turned on to full volume, touch the sockets the leads plug into with your finger. If you hear a big buzz. The amp is OK. If you don't the cartridge pre-amp inside your amp has failed. It will not effect any other parts of the system, cassette, radio, etc.

If you do hear a buzz. Then the cartridge is faulty.

I have a JVC turntable and an old Sansui reciever. Last night I was playing a record, and it stopped playing out of one speaker, and makes a loud buzzing noise. However, when I push the Mono button


You should check the connections to the turntable, it sounds like it might be feedback hum, caused by a wire touching or something like that. Don't forget to check the connections to the cartridge too.

I have a JVC turntable (AL-A155TN/AL-A155TNX). I haven't used it in about ten years. I hooked it up today. I played four records on it. Two were fine. The other two, however, started off fine


The only thing that might cause something like that is a build up of static. You can buy anti-static products for records and turntables. I tend to use an anti-static spray which also cleans the records.

I have vestax 05pro2. Left channel works but out of one speaker. The turntable input is good. Im thinking Its either the channel fader, or the rca inputs for that side. Has anyone had this problem?


Hi,
Here's a solution to see if you have a problem with either your receiver or turntable.
The turntable has 2 RCA's one red for right channel, and one white or black for left channel, which plug into the back of the amplifier.

  • Unplug both RCA from rear of amplifier.
  • Plug in a cd or dvd player into those inputs on the amplifier, the sound will be lower but it will give you an indication if the amplifier is ok or not.
  • If you have sound on both channels left and right then the amplifier is good
  • If you still only have sound on left channel, then there is a problem with the right channel input on the amp.
  • If your amp, is good, unplug the cd /dvd player.
  • Put a record on and start playing the record
  • Plug the white or black RCA from the turntable into the rear of the amplifier marked left, you should have sound.
  • now unplug it from the left and plug in into the right red RCA socket, if you have sound the amplifier is working fine.
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge on the turntable
  • now lets reverse the test
  • unplug both RCA from amp.
  • Plug the red RCA into the left socket on amplifier, if there is sound, turntable is working fine, if no sound there is a problem with either the stylus cartridge or that red RCA cable.
  • now unplug the red RCA from the left side and plug it into the right side socket
  • if there is no sound there may be a problem with the stylus cartridge or RCA cable.
I hope this helps

I was wondering what the extra wire attcahed to the audio cords it looks like a speaker wire


the bare stripped wire is for grounding the turntable to the receiver to eliminate any hum sound. If after connecting both phono plugs, you only get sound from one channel on the turntable but sound plays out of both channels on all other inputs then replace the phono plugs as this is the most likely problem.

New speakers to an old (1960s) record player


It is difficult to say with 100% confidence because the pictures are out of focus, but it looks like you have just a regular turntable. The wire connections you show are the bridge between the tonearm and the external RCA style cables. The extra wire (#5) is the ground wire. You should be able to connect this to any receiver that has a phono input.

For confirmation, can you update this with the model number of the turntable? That will allow me to confirm what I have stated above.

Thanks,
Dan
