No TT input. Need to get a phono amp (a small line amp). Check your local Best But Radio Shack.

First check for a line level switch on the TT, Might be under the rubber mat a you may need to turn the platter to fine it. Older TTs probably wont have one.

Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum.

I dont have the orginal ground wire for my Technics SL-BD20D turntable someone told me i could use rca cables to ground it, i have a pre amp cause my main amp didnt have phono jacks on the back of it.


Hello,
You don't need the original ground wire for Technics SL-BD20D turntable,
any plain cable can be used for this purpose...
you should connect turntable to your pre amp,should be a "phone" input at the back...
here are some suggestions for grounding....
---------
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    The ground for the turntable connection is not working. I've got a bad hum with the ground wire attached to the screw on the receiver and a worse hum when I disconnect it. I had the turntable checked...


    The ground connection on your receiver is simply connected to the metal chassis, so there's nothing that can go wrong with it. You won't have hum problems with any sources other than the turntable because their output levels are higher.

    With nothing connected to the turntable input, do you still hear any hum? You shouldn't. If you do, the problem is not because of the ground connection, but because something in the receiver's phono preamplifier circuit is faulty. But if there's no hum, the turntable is responsible. The fault may be in the turntable's output cable. The shield connection may have broken loose from the terminal where it's connected in the turntable. Or your cartridge may be defective.

    If your receiver is the culprit, you can see about having it serviced. Or you can purchase an external turntable preamp. Radio Shack sells one, and here's another source. With an external preamp, you can connect your turntable to one of the higher-level inputs (AUX, CD) and avoid the phono input.

    Ok guys (and gals)... I bought a psp 3001 on ebay dirt cheap thinking it was an easy fix. The discription said the LCD screen wouldnt turn on. i received it today and opened it to find that the psp was in...


    i really can't say, i would assume there would be a website that sell spare parts for the psp, i forgot the name of the one i use to go to, i need a new lil plactic thingy for the anolog, cuz it would go in another dir, i bought it, installed it, turns out that was not the prob at all and that i needed a new anolog in all.... so i just installed a plug in to disable the anolog, but i think i remember seein parts such as lcd screen parts and stuff... i got mine from some where in the uk.. the shippin was just a lil bit more,, (like $4 or so) ...

    Distorted sounds


    The AT-PL120 uses a magnetic cartridge to extract a music signal from the record. Magnetic cartridges all put out a very weak electric signal, and so their output must be strengthened, or amplified, to where it is as strong as the input from, say, a CD player. This amplification is provided by a pre-amp. If your receiver has dedicated "phono" inputs the pre-amp circuits are already in the receiver. If you do not have dedicated phono inputs you must either buy a pre-amp, or buy a magnetic cartridge turntable with a pre-amp built into itself. The AT-PL120 has a built in pre-amp. You can switch the AT-PL120's preamp on or off. The switch is located under the platter at the back side of the turntable. Take the platter mat off and turn one of the platter's holes to the back and you should see the switch through the hole. If you push the switch to LINE OUT the preamp is turned on and the turntable sends an amplified cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to a receiver inout suitable for a CD player (a "high level" input). If you push the pre-amp selector switch to PHONO OUT the turntable sends the weak unstrengthened cartridge signal out the cables which MUST be connected to the receiver's dedicated PHONO inputs so the signal can be amplified with the receiver's own pre-amp circuits.

    If everything is set wrong (i.e. LINE OUT (pre-amp on), and connected to phono inputs) you are applying two steps of strengthening to the turntable's signal which is too much. The resultant sound will be garbled. Try not to do this!

    The other way to do everything wrong is set the pre-amp switch to PHONO OUT (pre-amp off) and connect the turntable's cables to a high level input. If this happens the turntable signal receives no amplification and the resultant sound will be thin and weak.

    Connecting new tv to DRA-685


    you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).

    No Sound from Turntable


    It definitely has to go through a preamp (a PHONO preamp that is...) something like this: http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html
