The turntable does not turn. There is a black rubber band type that needs to be looped around the gears. How do I do this?

Pioneer Pl990 turntable sounds awful.... I have a pioneer pl 990 record player connected to a pioneer amplifier and a sony CD player. when I play an LP, the sound is bass heavy and I can hardly hear t


When the turntable plays, do you get a howling bass heavy sound? Have you tried turning down the volume and bass? If that corrects the problem, you have what's known as Acoustic Feedback. Check to make sure the tonearm is properly set up first. If it is, please visit my website at Audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

I have a kenwood full automatic turntable KD-67F ac 120v 10w 60hz. I dont know how to get the thing to work what else do i need? speekers? or other things if u could let me know it would be a great help


First of all you will need an amplifier, because a turntable has no sound power and its impedance needs to be balanced by a phono input, often found on a receiver or an amplifier. Then you will connect the speakers to the receiver or to the amplifier. I believe that a good start would to buy an old cheap stereo receiver, which has phono inputs, where you connect your kenwood turntable. Hope this will help. Flavio/Brazil

Got a pl990 turnrtable alot of distortion and terrible sound


Describe the circumstances. Only when played loud or always? What's the proximity of the TT to your speakers. It is NOT immune to airborne sound vibrations.

Sound coming from speakers is very low.Turntable connected to a Sony home theater system has no jack for turntable. I have it plugged into the sat/tv/cd jack.


if there is no phono input on your home theatre amp, plug the turntable into the auxillary sockets and not the sat/tv/cd input as it wont work properly in that socket. if after putting the turntable into the auxillary socket it is still too quiet then you should purchase a specially made small pre-amp booster amplifier designed for turntables to inprove the signal to noise ratio from a reputable hi-fi shop/dealer. good luck

My pioneer PL990 turntable, the pitch wavers.


try cleaning the inner ring on the underside of the actual turntable platter and also the motor spindle using isoprynol alcohol or use neat clear spirits like bacardi/vodka with cotton wool etc. if black residue comes off either the platter or the motor spindle that will be residue from the old belt that could cause the fluctuation in speed? good luck.

Hello, I recently recieved a kenwood KD76F turntable. I have a JBL system that I would like to incorporate the player with. I can not seem to get it to play.


Unless your JBL system has a dedicated "Phono" input, you will need to purchase a pre-amp, don't fret! they are not expensive, you can find them on google, yahoo, or ebay, starting around $25.00 If you need any more information, post a comment and I can guide you thru it. Hope this helps

I want to copy some records on CDR but the sound is too low. Can someone help?


If you have and amplifier or reciever you can frist plug your turntable into the amp or rec. and then to your sony CD recorder and then you should be able to adjust your volume to a higher position, also you can hook up and Equalizer and get the needle sound completely out unless your old school and like that LOL. There is also another way to save and make copies of all your old and new records By using the computer and getting a good sound card for your computer unless you have a good one or even buy a expansion bay with remote control made also by sony you can digatally remake all of you albums, Well sorry to go on and on but I am really into doing the same thing , If you need anymore help Please Let Me know Thanks again bear001
