Question about Thorens Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Thorens TD115. The left channel doesn't and I reverse the poles, I get no sound at all
I am basing my findings on my THORENS TD166 MK2.
First thing you have to do here is check the wiring from the headshell to the RCA phono leads - for this you need a multi-meter set on continuity.
Disconnect the cartridge and put one meter probe on one of the headshell wires and the other to the centre pins and outer rim of the RCA plugs. One headshell wire should read fine on one part of the plug as it will correspond with ONE part only of the RCA plug. When you have checked all wiring and you get a continuity check (OK) then you must look to the cartridge.
However, if you get a reading of ONE headshell wire reading more than one part of an RCA plug then you may have an internal wiring problem in the deck.
Here is something that might help:
RED - to centre pin of right output plug GREEN - to outer metal rim of right output plug WHITE - to centre pin of left output plug BLUE - to outer metal rim of left output plug In some cases this wire may be black
Just to recap, if these readings are OK - the cartridge may be at fault.
I wish you well with it!!! (:-)
