Right, so you have a turntable, which I assume was working fine before? It must have been connected to an amplifier or receiver. Keep this connection between your record deck & amp/receiver AS IT IS.

You want to make CDs from your vinyl? The best way to do this is to use the amp/receiver's tape/md/record loop. This "loop" sends the signal you are listening to from the amp to your CD recorder, and also allows you to switch to "tape" to monitor your recording during, or after recording, without deselecting your turntable (which would leave gaps in your recording). I will try to give you some useful information, but it all depends on your equipment & sockets, so if you're still lost after trying this, please let me know the make & model of your amp/receiver so I can check its functionality & give you some more helpful advice.

Your CD recorder has 2 pairs of phono (riaa) sockets, one to receive sound (input) and one to send sound (output) to & from your amp/receiver. You should connect the CD recorder's input (or record in) to the tape out (or record out) on the amp/receiver. And you should connect the CD recorder's output to the amp/receiver's tape in. Set your amp/receiver to phono (or however you usually have it set to listen to your turntable, and you should be set to record. When starting recording, I recommend that you use a CD-RW (a re-writable disc) so you can have a play around & get a good recording level that doesn't distort without wasting any discs.

Some amps/receivers don't have tape/md/record loops, in this case things can be a little more complicated & you might need to add a junction/switching box in order for it to work. I can help you with this too.

So best of luck & let me know how you get on.

Something that seems to come up a lot here & worth pointing out is that your dedicated AUDIO CD recorder will not accept data discs, only audio ones. That will be ones that say 80mins, rather than 700MB. These are a little more expensive but your recordings ought to be more reliable.

    I have the same model Sony. My preamp does not have a tape loop. What would be an example of the switching box you describe? Thanks!

Where can I find a replacement balance weight for the stylus arm on a Anders Nicholson 2655MMO turntable, cassette, CD player/recorder?


Balance weights can be removed and replaced easily. However when you say it snapped off, that could mean damage to the arm.
If everything is OK with the weight and you still have it, perhaps the weight could be "bodge" back into place. Perhaps with Blue Tack? If after all you can get the arm to balance correctly and apply the correct pressure to the stylus it doesn't really matter how the weight is attached does it? It might take a bit longer to set up correctly, but you might save some money if it needs a complete arm just to replace the weight!

Shaky sounding records


Some things to check:-
Is anything preventing the turntable from rotating smoothly, this would cause a judder.
Perhaps the records are sliding on the turntable, a rubber mat will cure this.
Ensure the record player is on a level surface.

No sound from turntable


1 ensure your reciever is also set to AUX .
2 try another AUX device such as an MP3 player or CD player and check that your Receiver AUX function is working.
2. connect your Turntable to another input such as DVD, CD, or Tape to see if it works at that position.
ensure that the correct button is selected for which ever position you use.

No CD changer


I wonder if the person you got the vehicle from knew there was no CD changer, but never look a gift horse in the mouth. Any brand CD changer should be able to work with your in-dash controller unit. You do not need to pay an arm and a leg to the dealer for a new unit, or risk purchasing a questionable used unit. I highly recommend Crutchfield.com for selection, price, and support.

PS-T3 connection to Sherwood 4105 Receiver


You need a phono stage (phono amp) between the turntable and receiver to boost the lower signal from the turntable. If your receiver has phono inputs, use those as there will be a built-in phono stage.

Provided that you're using the same cable you used for the last changer, it sounds like the new changer is defective.
