Check all conections to the turntable, also I think you should buy a new cartridge as a matter of course. I rather suspect it's (the cartridge) either **** or gone!

Turntable troubleshooting


My guess would be Old Receiver, Amp ... have a phono input what is in a simple way a pre-amplified input , newer receiver don't . You just need to buy a small Phono Turntable Preamplifier ( less then $20 on line) you are going to install between the receiver and the turntable and you should get some sound at the right level.
Good luck.

Crosley turntable won't play through home stereo


Quite possibly the sockets you put the deck is not designed for the playback of phono signals. They should be marked "phono".
Other issues are earth connections.

I just plugged a turntable into the accessory jacks on my Sharp XL-HP515 so that I can play some of my old LP's. I've got to turn the volume up all the way to hear it and it's still very quiet. Any idea...


If you're using an old-school turntable that doesn't contain a phono preamp that will happen.

A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose.


Recent AV Receivers generally do not.

The result would be very low, tinny sound.


If so, you need to get an external Phono Preamplifier.

I have a Sony direct drive PS-X5 turntable. I have to turn the amp up all the way to hear any sound.


If you're not connecting the TT to a PHONO preamp or a receiver with a built-in PHONO connection the signal from it will be too weak to get any meaningful volume PLUS the RIAA equalization curve required for flat phono playback won't be applied so it will sound very 'tinny'.

Google it.

Get electronics that can handle old-school turntables.

Very little volumn no groun d on stereo - do i


I can't find a reference to the TT-01, but if it's an old school turntable you need to run it through a Phono preamp.

It would help to know what electronics you're using as THAT is where the volume comes from.

The TT should be connected to a specific PHONO input as it includes special preamplification for a Phono cartridge and frequency shaping for the way LP's are recorded (Google RIAA). I imagine it may sound pretty tinny as you have it now.

When I turn on the record player on my Crosley, the digital display reads "line". No sound comes from the speakers unless they are turned all the way up. And then it sounds tinny and fuzzy. HELP!


Seems like the wrong input source has been selected. The gain on the LINE input is much, much lower than the PHONO input. Try changing the source knob to PHONO. Dont forget to lower the volume before you do this.

I can barely hear the record when played on my Stanton T.52


Is this a sudden onset problem or has it always been like this?

A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Recent AV Receivers generally do not.

You don't say what electronics you're running this through. I suspect you have it jacked into a Line Level input instead of a specific Phono input. The result would be very low, tinny sound.

If so, you need to get a Phono Preamplifier.

Sound quality is terrible on my Crosley CR79 turntable. Sounds very tinny and terrible. Got a new needle and the problem still exists.


This could be an earth lead to the cartridge problem, or the cartridge itself. Check the connections.

My Crosley combination turntable/CD/cassette/AM & FM radio has recently started giving me fits. I bought it new in 2003 and, until a few months ago, it worked great. But now the turntable arm won't click...


my Crosley CR6007A-MA turntable's sound is very, very low. You can't even hear it barely. I haven't had it long at all and it wasn't broke due to any sort of abuse. I really have no idea why it would do this for no reason! Help!

No signal from the Left output + Tinny sound


1. Assuming there is no problem with your amplifier of input cable, the headshell/tone-arm needs rewiring. This is very thin flexible wire and not easy to do, but can be done if you are careful.

2. Turntables require a special input on your amplifier which has a frequency response that is suitable for them. If you connect a turntable to an ordinary input, it will sound tinny. If you don't have a turntable input (known as a phono input [from phonograph]) you will need to use a preamplifier with your turntable.
