SOURCE: i balanced my tonearms correctly.

Balancing the tone arm is a two step process. Set the needle weight adjustment to zero(0) and make sure that the tone arm is balanced. It should rest horizontally without touching anything. Next, set the needle weight (usually 1.5 grams). Both adjustments should be on the rear of the tone arm. That should cause the tone arm to drop toward the record and have the correct pressure for the needle. Also, check the anti-skate adjustment. If that is off, the behavior you describe will occur as well.

SOURCE: I've got a Pioneer PL-300

Hi Mikey. I shure hope you have solved your problem by now, but for everyone else, I woud like to shead some light on this matter. What you need to do is to adjust the auto-return lever that is located between the center of the platter and the tonearm, underneath the plastic cover. To do so, you first need to remove the platter so that can reach the adjustment-screw. 
This is how the lever looks like in my PL-300X and it should look the same for you. I've marked the adjustment-screw that can be reached through a hole under the platter.

and this is what it looks like with the cover on:

Hope this can solve your or anyone elses problem.  Ciao / Albin

SOURCE: Sony PS-LX200H turntable plugged in to Onkyo TX-8211 inputs

After a few years it may be time to consider a new cartridge for the turntable. The current one may have given up the ghost. You might also want to check that the output cables from the turntable to the receiver are firmly plugged in. They may have come loose if someone was moving things or cleaning. Yet another thing to consider is the input on the receiver may not be working. You can test this by plugging in a cable with RCA plugs on both ends and touching the pins on the unconnected end. If the input's okay you'll hear a hum.

Probably it's time for a new cartridge. They don't last forever, especially if you, like me, are someone who still plays a lot of old vinyl!

Please take a moment to rate this solution a fixya if it's helped get you going, and thanks for asking here!

SOURCE: The 3.5mm audio plug broke

Two of the wires are ground (-) and two are hot/signal (+). You'll need a stereo 3.5mm mini plug (try your local RS...they also call them 1/8" plugs). The stereo plug will be divided into three separate connections called Tip, Ring and Sleeve. The Tip is right channel signal, the Ring is left channel signal and the two grounds should be connected to the Sleeve or ground connection.

If you get one side of your headphones backward (out of phase, plus and minus backwards) you'll know by the sound quality and so reverse the wires of only one side to correct.

How do I attach a SLB technics record deck to a technics DV250 stereo system


If you plugged it into the aux or vcr input and have no sound, you probably need a phono amplifier first. Signals from turntable are very low in comparison to other sources and need to be boosted up to normal levels first.

Connect imac to amplifier


e4228d3d-a132-463b-8916-f7c5307ccb67.jpgI have looked at an image of NAD rear and it has RCA type jacks. I would plug it into the AUX sockets. Now to if it will work. Plug some stereo headphones into the iMac socket. If you can hear sound then the cable you intend to buy will transfer the sound you hear to the amp. If you want to record from the amp to your computer you will need another a different input on your computer and that would need to be connected to tape 1/2 out.
Any 3.5mm socket to RCA will do, they are not expensive plenty of cheap ones on Amazon and E-Bay (image shown). You will need two if you do want to record as well.

We hooked our panasonic 5 cd changer stereo to our computer and the wires came undone....which wires do we wire back together?


There is no way for us to just 'know' your sound card features or the make/model of your "5 CD changer stereo".

Analog? Digital? IN to the PC or OUT from it? Or both? Manuals help.

Search engines provide all kinds of immeduate advice for these questions.

I have a 1979 Zenith Allegro Console Stereo and would like to know how much it is worth.


it depends on the condition and who you find to buy it. if it is in new condition and you can find a collector that needs one its worth about $400. if its just a normal used stereo and your selling it on craigslist you would be lucky to get $50-$100. for it. unfortunately they weren't amazing stereos and they are not all that collectible at this point in time. you usually see them in free adds or by the side of the road. If you hold on to it for another 30 years, it should be worth something though. :)

The 3.5mm audio plug broke off on my Beyerdynamic headphones. I need to replace the plug. There are four conductors but I don't know what type of plug to buy (4-pin?) or what the pinout is.

My Technics stereo system ...the display screen shows nothing


The question is, do you hear any sound? Is just the display off or is the entire unit shutdown? Can you tell?

These displays are known to develope poor solder connections at the power input and ground pins. If you can solder, open up the unit (unplugged of course) and examine the pins for the display. This will be on the PC board attached to the front panel. The pins at either end of a long line of pins will be the power and ground pins. Reasolder those pins, taking care not to short the pins together and try the unit once done. If that does not resolve the problem (assuming it is just a display problem), update this with as many details as you can about the behavior of the unit and we'll look further.

Ive bought a record deck but my hi fi has no phono input can anything be done


You will need to find a booster for it if it is a low level record player. Many new ones can plug right into the "AUX" or "TAPE" input of a stereo. The older ones would require a booster amp to be able to hear it on one of those inputs. You can go ahead and try it, it will not hurt the stereo to see if it will work or not. After you plug it into the stereo, if you can barely hear anything with the volume really loud, you need a pre-amp booster for the record player. You may need to look on ebay for one, I do not know of anyplace that sells them anymore.

I hope this helps,
Dave

I have a SA-203 receiver. I am trying to hook it up to my computer to record my LPs. I have run a stereo cord from the headphone jack to my "line in" on the PC. When I play anything (stereo,...


I did hook up my PC to my SA-203 successfully. I noticed the amplification was weakest when I hooked up through the "phono" connection but in all cases both speakers worked. Be certain you have plugged in the cables completely and the contact points are clean. If you open your Technics SA-203 you will see it is apparently not very complicated so if the connections are the problem you can probably even fix it yourself. Go to Radio Shack online as it is unlikely the sales help knows s**t about there electronics part bins and probably neither will the manager. But once again, I really believe you just need to fiddle with the plug at the "phones" connection on your receiver. Good Luck and sorry I took so long.
