Just plug in a single wire from a normal electric wire - between the screw and just into the groundhole - as i remember

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.

The power supply of the turntable needs checking. It could be just a fuse or something more serious, such as a faulty transformer.

How can I get a manual on how to fix this item? The arm needs adjusting. Thanks P.S. its a Technics sl-dd33 turntable


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.

Technics sl-BD20D turntable, attached pre amp but now have a loud hum, noticed there is a round jack with a pin in it next to the 2 outputs. Is this for grounding? Are there special cables that fit that...


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.

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.


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,

    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.

    Connect turntables(technics SL1210MK5) to a mixer?


    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.

    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.
