Kenwood turntable no sound?


Are you using a magnetic "PHONO" input on your amp/receiver, or just a line/aux input? The 'good' turntables from the 70's - 80's used magnetic catridges with a very low level output - you will need a phono preamp in order to hear the turntable. Only phonos (Crosly) that use ceramic catridges generate enough voltage without a preamp. Good luck and let me know if that answered your question.

One of my decks sound louder than the other


I'd say the cartridge is getting tired. Swap the head shells with carts and test. Cheers john. Styluscity

Turntable only playing in one speaker


In my business I work on a lot of turntables. Specifically, Memorex, Anders Nicholson, Innovative Technology and Emerson. 99% of the time when I only have sound coming out of one channel it is due to a broken cartridge. If you look at the tone arm head from underneath you will see a rubber fork that the needle arm sits in. There are usually 2 ceramic cartridges attached to the rubber fork. Those transmit the sounds from the needle. If one of those brakes then that channel will not transmit any sound.

Pioneer PL200 very low volume in one channel


its most likely a break in the rca phono leads coming out of the rear of the deck? maybe try jiggling them whilst playing a record to see if the sound comes on? if this is the case you could maybe locate by jiggling up and down the cable till you locate where the break is and cut of the cable, add a new phono by usung an electrical joint connector (the type electricians use to joint two wires via plastic connector with screws in?) and see if this solves it? failing that get the rca phonos completely rewired by a competent repairer? good luck

One of my turntables only has sound coming out of left speaker..


one of your phono leads ether red or white is nakered.plug them in one at a time and see witch ones workin,then youll no the dodgy one.when you pull out leads from your mixer you can sometimes break cables free from the fittings if pulled by the wire.you wanna re soilder a new lead on to deck or pull back the sheath plastic covering the fitting and reconnect the cables(the insulated wire goes to the pin an the uninsulated goes to outside ring)gd luck

Broken lead needs to be replaced


I have been hiring technics for years and this is a recurring problem, you have to replace the phono connection or worse the whole lead, sorry

No sound out of deck


If you've already replaced the RCA /Phono cables, then the only other item that would cause this kind of problem is your tonearm, and it will need to be replaced.

1210 mk2 only playing through left speaker checked everything and needs new rca phono lead how easy is it to change thanks


If you have done some soldiering and have a steady hand, it's not difficult. If you are not sure, you could destroy that little circuit board that the lead runs to, and technics had discontinued production of that part. I'd say get it done by a pro with experience.

How do i replace the phono leads on my technics 1210?


OK,

you have to turn it over, remove the rubber housing, remove the round metal guard from below...


ONLY DO THIS IF YOURE CONFIDENT IN SOLDERING SKILLS!!

You have to unsolder 4 leads ( stereo ) and solder on a new pair.

If you actually proceed, i can give you a better step by step.

But this process requires soldering..so.


Keep me posted.

RCA Phono plugs


replace the rca leads, make sure the ground lead is tethered, make sure the lines arent crossed under the headshell....but soldering a fresh pair of rca, usually fixes that....Also remove the headshell/cartridge, and see if there is any residue in the 4 contacts in the tonearm....
