I'm pretty sure it's the phono that comes out of the back. Only the left side is working. It looks pretty hard to get to though. Any advice you can offer would be very much appreciated thanks.
If not the phono it'll be a bigger problem I suppose!

Re: Sound only coming from one side
Disconect the wires to the cartridge, with the amp powered up touch the wires with your finger (don't worry you won't get a shock) if you get a buzz on two of the wires (L&R) then the wiring is good. Therefore the cartridge is to blame. Also check the amp out too, by putting the left into the right etc. If it is the amp it will be a small IC that has failed. It will be on a board near the imput most likley.
Most turntables are accessed from the underside also.

To really be sure, under a microscope to look at the diamiond, but i haven\'t seen one channel oke and one chanel no sound. Then it should allways makes sound , only ckrackling. So be sure your wires are fit by tightening the connection and measure your output till the last connection with your stylus and move your connections a bit , if that\'s allright , then is it a cable or input from something outside your tt. But have you checked it also with first cleaning your needle well and another record and lift each side of the turntable a bit. Sometimes is one dust particle enough, even with a new stylus. Is your output line or phono? O a technics, take the whole needle out and those fours pins you have to lubricate with right stuf ( a tiny bit ) and move them in and out and you havent cheked the connection with your om/concorde, but i think that one pin won\'t come out totally, so pull a bit ( after lubrication ) push them all inside and watch if they come all four back. And pls replace those terrible quality rca cables from technics, they are crap and a nice pair from another brand is only 30 euro a pair, but you needle ain\'t broke for sure and does it work with another unit?.......(still clean and lubricate the stuff).I hear from you.
Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/imageview.php?image=357
If you put the good channel from the deck into the right and then left phono imputs of your amp, the sound should come out from the left and right speakers. If it only comes out from the left, then the amp as a right hand channel fault. Now if other devices work on both channels, then it's the pre-amp for the phono socket that has a fault on it. You should be able to find this by following the wires from the phono socket. If you touch around that pre-amp you should get it to buzz on either channel (where it joins with the main pre-amp). Doing this with a screwdriver will pin-point where the faulty part is (working backwards). PS don't short anything by touching to bits of metal together with the screwdriver.
Magnetic cartridges need a small pre-amp before they can be past to the main pre-amp. That's why you can't hear anything with the deck plugged into another line socket.
If you get signal on both left and right speakers with the above test the deck is to blame.
Sounds like the now infamous 'fan icing up' caused by a design fault of the fridge evaporator cover assembly & evaporator heater.Contact Samsung.You may find that these components are covered by by an extended 5yr. guarantee. Good luck.I was 30 days outside.
Is the amplifer working OK? Go to the phono input and put your finger on the right channel. It should hum. if it does not, you might have lost the internal preamp for cartridges. If it does hum then you need to recheck the right channel wires, conections etc. Don't forget you can change the conections over and see if the left channel will come on the right side.
If it is the preamp you might find an IC is the cause. Often these devices here are static sensetive.
It sounds like a bad bearing on the right side hub. you can check this by raising the front of the car till the tires are off the grond. Grab the tire and try to wiggle it up and down and front to back if there is any play replace the bearing. check both sides
sounds more like a wheel bearing,jack the car up and support with axle stands,then grab the front left wheel at both sides and shake it hard.then grab it at the top and bottom and shake it hard.if a knocking can be felt through the wheel then its most likely a wheel bearing.repeat the test for the rear wheel.also with the vehicle jacked up,spin the wheel and put your ear next to it,if it makes a dry whirring or grinding sound as it spins,this is a symptom of a worn wheel bearing
first thing to do is take the left and put in in the right, do you get sound on the right? now take the phono cartridge wires and move the left to the right and right to the left does the sound move or stay same place. if they move with or not tells you if the cartridge is bad or phono plugs. if they dont move it's the phono plugs if the does move it's the cart.
