First reverse the deck plugs to your amp to make certain it's not something to do with that.
Disconect the left and right wires from the cartridge. With your finger & thumb grab hold of each channel wire. It should hum/buzz. If there is no difference then the cartridge is faulty. If there is a difference, I would have a look inside the turntable (access via the bottom) you might find a pre-amp or something wrong in it.
If the problem is in your amp, trace the cartridge pre-amp via the wiring. You might find what might be the cause there. Most by the way are a single IC that does all the work.

I am hearing impaired. The ring tone on the kenmore stove I often cannot hear. What am I to do?


the ring tone is normally for the timer and not for the temperature setting or when the oven is on or off
find a hearing impaired organization centre and ask about having a louder bell or flashing light fitted in the kitchen for the stove
there will be organizations that will help, even an accredited electrician may give you some ideas as to what to do.

Why is the right side of my Technics turntable dropping out and giving me a ground hum?


It sounds like a bad connection to the cartridge, perhaps even the cartridge itself.

Denon DP-297 Turntable Tone Arm Skating


There should be a weight on the end of the arm, this needs to be adjusted. Some have numbers on them, increase the number shown. To get it to work right you will have to do it by trial and error. Increasing the weight in small steps, then playing a record. The trick being so it stays in the groove, but not too much so it rumbles on the sound. You will need to repeat the process several times till it sounds right and stays in the groove.

I hear a progressively louder, almost metal-on-metal sound behind my front passenger tire while I'm driving, regardless of braking or accelerating. I was told a couple months ago to change my tie rod soon...


prob a wheel bearing if you think its a tie rod just leave the car off and get under it and wiggle the long arms connecting the front wheels.
if its wheel bearing jack that tire off the ground and try to wiggle it.
ultimatly goto the tire shop and have them look at it.

What kind of noise will you hear with bad right wheel bearing? It sounds like a whirl behind radio and gets louder with increased speed over 35mph.


the noise should change or go away when you turn the wheel to the right or left. if it does it sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Typically if you turn to the left and it gets louder its the right side if you turn to the right and it gets louder its the left side. Or if you turn to the right and it goes away its the right side and if it goes away when turning to the left it is the left side.

Another thing you can do is safely jack up the front of the vehicle. With the transmission in neutral rotate each wheel by hand while holding onto the strut spring with your other hand. You should be able to feel the noise you hear in the strut spring if it is the bearing.

Tone Arm skips past first song


Hello, A. Do not try to close the case when there is a record inside!! The fact that the turntable cannot do this is not a design flaw--you'll be hard pressed to find a portable turntable that can close with a record inside because if you were to pick up the player with one inside, it could easily slip off of the spindle and scratch against the sides of the player.
B. Are you using the cueing lever to lift the tone arm before you place it on the record? Read the instructions to see where the cuing lever is (it's a little switch on the right side of the tone arm). When you lift it, the tone arm will lift up and allow you to position it wherever you want on a record, then you depress the lever to make the tone arm touch the record and being playing.
I hope that helps!
