SOURCE: Connecting speakers to amp

Your Amp will be having a pair of Phono / AUX input sockets at the rear. Connect the two Red and White cabbles from the Turntable to these sockets. I am unaware of what are Pilot Speakers. regular speakers have a dual colored pair of cables coming from them. they have to be connected to the speakers Connectors at the rear of the Amp. Play a Vinyl Record, select Phono on your AMP, and enjoy your music.

SOURCE: no sound from turntable bought for our hi fi system

Hi,

Most if not all turntables would need to be connected to a PHONO INput which is high impedance with a high gain pre-amplifier stage. It will not work when connected to an AUX, CD or any line level inputs. Alternately, if your amp does not have any Phono Inputs, you can feed the turntable output to a preamp which can then be connected to any any line level inputs. An example may be found here or here. Additionally, there are some turntables with a built-in preamp.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Prosound Power AMP, no sound available

hi jacko, i had the same problem with my prosound 1000.
changed all the fuses etc with no luck.
then as a last resort, i tried wiggling and lightly tapping the internal wires on the main board then all of a sudden there was sound!
i know next to nothing about electronics but i am thinking that i may have reset some kind of power protection cut off that may have been sticking, but what do i know?.
Please, like everything else electrical, if you do try this, make sure power is off first.

hope this helps, its worth a try.

SOURCE: Buzz....hum problem from turntable....

Did you ground the turntable? Most of them have a ground wire located somewhere that connects to a screw on your electrical outlet. You could be getting hum from your pre-amp if it is a low quality one. Try unhooking the pre-amp, if that is the problem you won't hear the hum. If the turntable ground is the problem you won't hear music with no pre-amp but you will still hear the hum.

Technics SL1300 replacement stylus


Your amp must have a dedicated phono socket, otherwise you will need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to hear it playing, via an aux socket on your amp.

The cartridge will have a make and number on it, put that into Google and it will find the stylus. If your cartridge is old or faulty. You can replace it with any other make you want. Most will fit the deck. With cartridges the more expensive it is the better the sound, generally unless it's just a well known brand or something just to be flashy!

No sound through the built in speakers. Turntable turns fine and I can hear the record play but it does not transfer to the speakers. New needle makes no difference


Remove the 4 wires to the cartridge. With the system on. Put your finger on each of the wires separately. On two of the wires you should hear a buzz (one on each channel) on the others very little or perhaps a faint buzz.
If you hear the loud buzz(s) the amp inside the deck is working and you have either a faulty cartridge or have not connected the two wires right.
If you don't hear any buzz, the amp inside the unit is faulty. If the amp has other functions that do work (such as radio) then it is the pre-amp for the cartridge that has gone. As this will not affect the other functions.

My turntable does not have good sound? Is it the stylus needle?


It could be, first check all connections as they can come loose. It could also be the cartridge, the only way to find out is to get a new one. If you get a cartridge and stylus, you can fit the new stylus to your old one, if that solves the problem, you have a spare cartridge in stock, if it doesn't then replace the cartridge. If that doesn't work and the connections are good, then there is a fault on the magnetic cartridge pre-amp in your amp.

Can you still get the px-e860 turntable? The one I have won't make any sound thru the speakers


Judging by my own experiences with hifi gear on eBay there is little on the face of the planet that ever really becomes UNavailable.

Wouldn't an attempt to resolve the issue work, too?

Describe your setup (preamp, amp, whatever) and if it has ever or never worked.

This unit can work through its own preamp with any audio equipment or with old-school gear already having an internal Phono Preamp. There's a switch to select which one.

Installed a new stylus but sound is very faint


Two things could be wrong. The cartridge is faulty or your amp. Here's how to find out which. Touch your finger on the wires that connect to the cartridge, disconect them if you can from it. With the deck connected to your amp, two of the wires should buzz, one on the right and the other on the left. If that buzz is weak then there's something wrong with the cartridge pre-amp in your amp. If you get a decent buzz, then the cartridge has gone.

I just bought a pioneer pl-200 turntable at a flea market. I plugged it into an old am/fm/8-track amp's phono input and I know the amp cranks on fm but on phono, it's very low sound. It does get louder...


Turntable signal outputs are very, very low amplitude and either have to pass through a pre-amp before being connected to an amplifiers "ordinary" inputs (e.g. aux), or connect to an amplifier's specific turntable input in order to give the "normal" levels of volume.
This is because the cartridge (the bit that has the stylus or needle on it) can only generate very small amplitude signals.
As turntables are now outdated, a lot of amps no longer have a turntable input any more.
Unless you can also find a cheap pre-amp or an old amp with a turntable input, you may have wasted your money.

Sound coming from speakers is very low.Turntable connected to a Sony home theater system has no jack for turntable. I have it plugged into the sat/tv/cd jack.


if there is no phono input on your home theatre amp, plug the turntable into the auxillary sockets and not the sat/tv/cd input as it wont work properly in that socket. if after putting the turntable into the auxillary socket it is still too quiet then you should purchase a specially made small pre-amp booster amplifier designed for turntables to inprove the signal to noise ratio from a reputable hi-fi shop/dealer. good luck

Sound from only one of two speakers when playing turntable


wow my friend just had this same exact problem last week. Apparently, it was his stylus that wasn't pushed in all the way or not secure enough. Try that first, because that is the originating source of your stereo output.

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.
