Question about Technics SL-1210M5G Turntable

Gain output is not equal on left and right I

Gain output is not equal on left and right I recently purchased my M5G and thought it was all fine untill I start recording with them. When looing at the wave form I noticed that on one of the deck the left output was not equal to the right. This worry was confirmed by noticing the gain difference when switching to mono on my mixer. Any idea? Thanks a lot

Is there a balance (LR) for the input on your preamp?
Is there an anti-skating adjustment on the tt? That controls the lateral pressure on the needle. Read the manual.
try a different set of cables

Want to know how do you hook up an equalizer to my DJ equipment

An Equalizer (such as a 31 band equalizer) connects in line with the left and right outputs. You would take the left feed out of the desk and run it through one equalizer, and do the same with the right output.

The output of the equalizer then runs to your power amps. Most equalizers have a bypass mode so that if you decide not to run them you do not have to unplug them. Equalizers are made by a lot of different companies, but an example of one can be found Here.

Hi i trying to figure out how to wire up my rca's i have a pionner deck in on the back of it it has front output,rear output,sub output ,and also a audio output .now im trying to up it to a clarion eq that...

The "Front output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the "Main In" on the Clarion EQ. I'm assuming that your Clarion EQ can only deal with one input, and will send the adjusted (equalized) signal out both of the outputs.
The "Front output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Front Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Rear output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Rear Input" on the 4 channel amp.
The "Sub output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the Left/Right Input on the Epicenter. The Left/Right Output on the Epicenter would need a Y-splitter for each side, so that you could connect each amp separately. One suggestion would be to use one sub amp for both subs.

There is no output from the right side of rec out.The left side works fine

Most likley a simple fault on the phono connector and the board it's soldered to. Check for dry joints and cracks where the sockets are mounted.

No Right Front Speaker Output

Swap speakers over...check the balance isn't fully to the other channel...swap left/right phono cables over (if thats how your using it) other than that i would say is broke.
Easy way to check speaker cable/speaker... touch a small battery (like used in a remote) across speaker wires, you will hear and see the speaker cone move.

How do we hook up a roadmaster equalizer model number EA400N to a 1989 dodge ram pickup truck

Hi there,

First of all I would recomend that you consult your user's manual that should have been in the box when you purchased your reciever. Your CDR and MD in/out jacks should not be used for an EQ. Your EQ process should take place after everything else in the signal chain is completed and right before your final amplification. If you have no designated in/out for an EQ then you may have to find some other way of processing the signal. Perhaps a pre-amp may be needed in order to bring all of your signals together to then run through your EQ. Sometimes some amps have pre-out/in RCA jacks. These can often be used for an EQ.

Post further comments for more help.
Good Luck!!

NAD 302 stereo balance problem

I would replace the output transistors of the bad channel and any very low ohm resistors associated with them.
Whilst youre in there replace the electrolytic caps in the power amp section. Caps are cheap and plentiful.
I dont know what the rest of the circuit looks like but there might be a need to balance the DC offset after replacing transistors. and carry many good replacement transistors.
