Re: Technics SL-DD33 Turntable
Well, it will play, it will just be very annoying to hear that humm. Unfortunately, you cannot get the wire plug from Technics, as it has been discontinued. So, the only other option is to take it to a service center, and have them 'hard-wire' a ground table to the unit. This entails opening it up and running a ground wire from the inside of the unit. Shouldn't cost you much, and should take about 30 min or so to complete. If you are quoted more the US$40, take it else where.
Any qualified electronics technician should be able to handle this. It's Audio Repair 101 - very easy stuff.

Technics website may have one. The counter weight has a setscrew on it. Loosen it ans move the weight slightly forward until the needle just rests completely in the groove and stays there. Too much will cause excessive wear to the needle and the record.
Hi, Yes your turntable needs to be grounded to get rid of hum. Make sure that your turntable, preamp and amp are all powered from the same point. Most preamps do not have a grounding connection on them and when they do it is normally on the same side that the rcas from your turntable connect too. What is the make and model of your preamp. I will check it out. To earth to a preamp without a grounding connection do this. Take the grounding cable from your TT and slip it in the side of one of the 2 rca connections as you plug them in. That will ground your TT to the amp. If it doesn't then swap the ground lead to the other rca. Cheers John. Styluscity.com.
Hello, 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,
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

run or rap a cable around both the phones ie red & white then run it to the GND. on the mixer or amp witch ever.failing that put a new ground wire in the turntable.when you take it apart you'll see the old one just crimp a new wire on to the old one,bob's you're uncle
None. The cables are already attached to the turntable. They are hard wired to the unit. The red & White cable. Just connect to the PHONO INPUT on your DJ MIXER, and connect the thin ground wire to the GROUND terminal on the mixer. That's it your ready to go.
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.
