How do I find a Technics SL-BD22 grounding wire?

A grounding wire is just a piece of wire connected to an earth point on the deck, connecting to an earth point say on a radiator pipe. There's nothing special about this wire any old piece will do. You only need it if you get a hum noise when the turntable is connected to the amp.

Cannot connect ground wire on SL BD26

Usually, on Technics turntables, the ground wire is attached to a ground lug on the receiver.

I dont have the orginal ground wire for my Technics SL-BD20D turntable someone told me i could use rca cables to ground it, i have a pre amp cause my main amp didnt have phono jacks on the back of it.

You don't need the original ground wire for Technics SL-BD20D turntable,
any plain cable can be used for this purpose...
you should connect turntable to your pre amp,should be a "phone" input at the back...
here are some suggestions for grounding....
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    How do I get rid of static? Do I need a ground

    You might try grounding the device. Run a wire from the metal frame of your turn table to the screw on the face plate of your outlet (very simplest way to get a good ground). See if that works. If you do see improvement, you could rewire the turntable with a 3 conductor wire, taking the green to the same metal frame of your machine.

    You may want to consider plugging your turn table into your amplifier - in that case, ground the turntable to the amp for best results.

    You might also try turning the plug over if it is not a polarized plug.

    You can also check your outlet to make sure it is wired properly (white wire to the big slot and black wire to the little slot (in the USA) ground on the round slot)

    Static muffling/removal/'elimination'/masking is always a trade off. Your software doesn't really remove static - it filters the frequencies that static uses to make the static noise. So, yes, you have a dulling of the frequencies in that range. Sorry to tell you that ... it has been an issue ever since I got interested in this stuff at age 10 or so (giving me about 50 years experience with static at the consumer level).

    Thanks for your question

    New RCAS on Technics 1200 Getting a Loud Buzzing Noise

    It is not suggested that you remove the ground cable. Performing the mod for the ground by soldering a bridge on the circuit board doesn't really do anything either than remove that buzz/ground hum. You've essentially removed the wire that grounds the turntable cabinet to the earth. The buzz is gone, but now your turntable is no longer grounded properly.

    I would suggest replacing the ground cable to it's original state, then attach the Monster cables.

    If this does not work, then either there is an issue with the soldering to the board, or the board itself might be damaged. You might want to look at the trace paths to make sure none are lifted, or damaged in any way on the board. Another issue might be faulty tonearm wires or not properly soldered wires.

    FYI, monster cables are not good for this purpose. I would suggest the following cables:

    What all can I attach a turntable ground wire to?

    Connecting to another piece of equipment besides the mixer introduces the possibility of creating a ground loop, which, of course, is not desirable.

    Just make a splice using Stakons (crimper). Just cut off the existing connector and crimp a (red) round crimp to the existing ground wire. Then take a length of same gauge and crimp a round a (red) spade Stakon on the other end. Then take a nut and bolt and connect the 2 round connectors and tape with good black tape (Scotch 33 or similar). That will get you through the Gig.

    Where is the ground wire connected to on the Technics SL-BD27?

    You will more than likely need to wire it up from the inside of the unit, unfortunately. Parts for this model are discontinued. You can also try an iPod cable. As the size is a 1/8" plug - same as an iPod cable, then just cut the other end, and ground to your receiver.

    It's possible that your ground wire or rca cables have shorted out. Also check where the cartridge is installed in the tonearm to see if the 4 contact pads are corroded or pushed back. Make sure the ground wire is screwed firmly into the mixer or receiver. if oyu have tried these options and still get static, replace the tonearm.

    keep me posted
