The first thing to is try to eliminate the cartridge as a cause of the fault. You can do this by swapping the connections around on the cartridge. If you get the weakness still on the Red cable you know it is that. Solder joints do cause trouble, often the earth is the problem. Try resoldering the joints. Or replace the entire cable as there might be a break.

The phono cable's do tend to fail, usually near the phono plug or under the cord clamp.
The best option is to replace the cable - look here :-

Don't forget to ground the ground cable from the turntable.

First and foremost, make sure you plug into directly to the PHONO input of your receiver. If your unit does not have a PHONO input, then you wont be able to hear much coming from the unit. The PHONO input is a pre-amplified input, and this turntable requires an amplified input in order to transmit it's signal correctly. Just using an AUX or LINE IN will not have enough power to increase the signal of the turntable. You have the option of purchasing a PHONO PRE-AMPLIFIER (range in price from US$15-30), or purchasing a new receiver with a PHONO INPUT!

If you have it connected to your phono input, and still no sound, your turntable may have either faulty RCA cables (red/white cables), or a bad tonearm - in either case will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Weak output signal when compared to my other table.


This does happen. The RCA cables used on the Technics 1200's aren't of the greatest quality, and you will find lower output on some turntables. This can become an issue, if you record your sets to your PC, or you use Serato, Final Scratch, or any of the digital control set ups. There is only 1 way to resolve this, and that's to switch out the RCA cables on both turntables, and ensure that they are matched. This can be done by any qualified audio service technician. Just make sure you choose some good quality RCA cables, and not the standard OEM Technics cables.
