SOURCE: I have a Thorens TD115. The left channel doesn't

I am basing my findings on my THORENS TD166 MK2.
First thing you have to do here is check the wiring from the headshell to the RCA phono leads - for this you need a multi-meter set on continuity.
Disconnect the cartridge and put one meter probe on one of the headshell wires and the other to the centre pins and outer rim of the RCA plugs. One headshell wire should read fine on one part of the plug as it will correspond with ONE part only of the RCA plug. When you have checked all wiring and you get a continuity check (OK) then you must look to the cartridge.
However, if you get a reading of ONE headshell wire reading more than one part of an RCA plug then you may have an internal wiring problem in the deck.
Here is something that might help:
RED - to centre pin of right output plug GREEN - to outer metal rim of right output plug WHITE - to centre pin of left output plug BLUE - to outer metal rim of left output plug In some cases this wire may be black
Just to recap, if these readings are OK - the cartridge may be at fault.
I wish you well with it!!! (:-)

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help. As a matter of fact I spoke to a Thorens distributor who told me that more than likely I need to replace the RCA plug and wires."

SOURCE: Cannot remove clip around spindle to lift off

Hello mervyn_u,

The clip is a snap ring and it is best to use a pair of snap ring pliers to remove it without damaging or stretching it. Many people use a flathead screwdriver to pry off the ring but, again, you risk damaging the ring. You can purchase an inexpensive pair of these at your local Sears or other hardware store. They are simple to use.

Htr-6230 low volume

If I were to guess from the information you submitted, your Thorens, which needs a specific phono input, is now plugged into a high level input, such as an AUX, DVD, CD etc. These inputs are for a 300 Millivolt input device. Your magnetic cartridge is no where near 300 Millivolts; never measured it, but would have to say a 1/10 of that. If your receiver doesn't not have a label that says "phono", you will need a phono preamp to amplify the output of your Thorens, with the very low input, to an output of 300 Millivolts. These preamps are sold just about everywhere, Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.

Need new lid for Thorens TD 160 turntable. Any ideas where I can get one from

I can't guarantee anything, but look up and call Stereo Component Systems in Boston Ma. When I was there, they still had quite a bit of Thorens parts available.
