Re: Volume

LPs were mastered back in the day with no real volume standard--ceertain sounds had to be mastered light because the engraving on the master disc was so technology does not have that takes a lot of volume before it starts to break-up...

My crosley keepsake turntable has been having a lot of static and the sound is very low, I can only hear it if I turn the volume all the way up. I'm not sure if the needle is the problem or there is s

I would check the wires to the cartridge. It might that one or more is off or loose.
If you turn down the volume completely and listen with a record playing you should be able to hear (with your ear) the stylus in the grooves of the record playing the track. Pick a loud (rock) record for this. If it does that OK the stylus is good.

Thorens volume issue

You probably need to get a magnetic cartridge preamp to make it work. This will connect between the two.

No volume from turntable, even with volume turned to max, are ther internal fuses ?

You don't state which model the turntable is. Without this we are working blind. If the turntable has a built in amp then that will have failed. A blown fuse would shut down everything. If it has no built in amp and you have it connected to a separate amp, then you have either connected it to the wrong socket - it needs a phono socket - or if the amp doesn't have one you need a magnetic cartridge preamp.

Yorx turntable speed issue, And turntable is warped.

You may be experiencing Acoustic Feedback, although it doesn't really make any sense the way you describe it. Make sure the tonearm is balanced and the proper weight is dialed in on same. Does it make any difference if the volume or bass are turned down, which my point to the Acoustic Feedback.

I am not sure what computer system or operating system you are using. If you are using a PC with MS Windows try to go to the control panel from the start tab. Double click on the sounds and audio devices icon. Click on Advanced in the master volume box. If any mute boxes are checked, uncheck them and move the volume to the top. Try your system to see if you have any output. I hope this helps since I did not see any recommendations to check the master volume mixer.

You need to find out if your reciever has a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" built in. Many don't and it's no good putting it in an aux or tape socket. If it doesn't say 'phono' or 'record player' on the socket it probably won't have one. Don't worry you can buy one, which will restore the normal sound level.
If it does have one it could be faulty. They are often a single IC that has failed, but they tend to kill the sound dead when they fail, so I don't think that will be your problem.
Just put the words "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" into Google to find one.

Old turntable given to me. sanyo tp 728 plays records, but volume very low. volume on stereo on full to hear quietly

Are you feeding the signal into the PHONO input? If not, then the volume will be very low. Make sur it is a PHONO input, not all receivers have them now.

ION turntable volume is low when plugged into a receiver.

Either the cartridge has failed, or an internal amp in the record deck has, or despite what you say the receiver has. I will clarify this for you. Magnetic cartridges need a pre-amp before it gets amplified by the pre-amp and power amp of your reciever. If that pre-amp fails you will still hear the low sound from the deck, but all others cd/tape would be normal as they don't go into the deck pre-amp.
All you need to is trace the circuit. Find the magnetic cartridge pre-amp and find where it joins with the pre-amp of the amp! If you stick a screwdriver at that point, you will get a buzz at normal volume on each channel. The cartridge pre-amp has gone if you do get a buzz!
You probably find it's a single IC that's gone, some are prone to static problems.

Low volume and unbalanced deck

Turntables require amplification, they have very low output on their own. If your Sherwood has an Aux input try using that, older receivers often had a built-in pre-amp on the aux jack. You can obtain a stand alone pre-amp for less than $50, I use one from mcm, #40-630.
