Turntable problems i cant get my pioneer pl990 turntable to work on my kenwood or a sony receiver. it uses one channel and will knock you down with the volume level. However I can make it work hooked up to an old Montgomery Wards system. Can you help me

    I actually found out the cartridge is also amplified so you need to plug the rca jacks into an aux or a different input than phono, because from what i read the phono input is also amplified causing the extreme volume and distortion. plugging it into the tape input worked ok.

I don't quite understand what you mean by "knock you down". The RCA plugs shouldb e connected to a phono input. If you don't have one, you will need a phono pre-amp.
Please update this if you still have questions.

Your receiver probably has no Phono input. You cannot plug the turntable into a CD input, for example. You will need an external preamp to use a turntable with this receiver.

Please advise if I can fix myself ? or do I need to take some where and if yes where and who can I trust


Can you please tell me exactly how you have the receiver wired. What I need is, for example, the left front speaker is wired to what? Do you have more than one speaker wired to to the same speaker terminal? For more information, or if you would like to inquire about having your Sony repaired, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. By the way, I was a Sony Factory Authorized Service Center for over 30 years. Thank you.

Erratic volume from new turntable thru used amp


First detirmine if it is only the turntable that is causing this problem, by connecting something else to another terminal. If that works fine it will be the cartridge preamp that is causing the problem. From what you describe it sounds like an IC that is playing up.
If the other device plays up as well as the turntable, I still suspect an IC, but this time in the main pre-amp. The reason I suspect an IC is that by the sound of things both channels are playing up and therefore it has to be somepart that has both channels going in and out of it- thus IC!

Yamaha receiver problems


If you're using the same turntable on both I'd say you see the smoking gun. I doubt it actually killed anything. Perhaps the cartridge wiring or connections on the TT are flaky. What type of TT is it?

Was it working normally before all of this?

I have 1 center channel pre-out on back of my kenwood receiver. how do i hook it to the inputs on onkyo m-282 amp and then to center channel speaker?


Unfortunately can't connect it that way. The pre out is only meant to go directly into an amplifier that has all of the same inputs (front/rear, center and surround), not a standard receiver. (Pre amp to amp only, not pre amp to receiver) If your Onkyo doesn't have all the same inputs as your Kenwood preamp has outputs you will just use your standard left/right outputs from the Kenwood to your Onkyo input (CD, Tape, Phono,DVD etc) then use the outputs (front/rear, center and surround) from your Onkyo receiver and connect directly to your speakers..

KENWOOD Power Amplifier


The power amp does need an imput signal ie. tuner, cd , and such to play. You can use the power amp with the other equipment.
