SOURCE: pioneer pl 200 , no sound well real quiet

The third wire is a ground wire I think. You are running the ttb through a phono input and not through a line level input on your system right?

Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.

SOURCE: Pioneer Amp VSX-D409 Volume

I have a VSX D508 Looks just like the VSX D409. Had the same prob with the volume control when I bought it. I first tried the cleaner. Better than what it was but didn't compleatly solve the problem and before long it was getting worse again.
It does have a rotary encoder instead of the traditional varible restance volume control. I finally broke down and removed it from the board and lightly sanded the contacts with fine sandpaper.
This involves removing the whole face from the main board and chassis. Not that bad, a couple screws and some ribbon jumpers and latches and it's off.
Next carefully pull the volume control straight off the shaft, remove the nut under it and lay it face down on a soft surface. Remove the screws that hold the circuit board to the face and slowley seperate the too, you'll have to release some latches also to sepperate them.
If you replace the volume control with a new one or clean the old one you have to go this far because it's soldered to the front side of the board. Yes, it has to be de-soldered from the board.
This control was not designed to be dissassembled but I was able to carefully open it and remove the shaft to totaly expose the contacts for a complete even couple of passes with the sandpaper.
I did have to use some 5-minute opoxy when I put it back together because I couldnt get the metal tabs to close as tightly as they were before it was opened.
I soldered in the volume control, put it back together and it's worked perfectly ever since. I don't know how much pioneer wants for a new one but I can tell you they wanted $69 plus shipping for a new remote for my receiver. And with this style of volume control you might be at their mercy as far as finding one from another source that fits.

My Roland FP8 plays very quietly through its own speakers, through an external amp & speaker and through the earphones. There is a hissing/crackling/static sound too from the speakers. Anyone


A number if things can be wrong with it, from the audil preamp to the the audio amplifier. Even as simple as a bad volume control. Does the actual noise change patterns when you move the volume?

I have my PL-5 hooked up to an amp and speakers. The only way I can hear it is by turning the volume all the way up on the amp. Even doing that the volume is very low. The weird thing is with the amp...


You need to buy a turntable pre-amp, as the signal output is much too low to drive an amplifier. Or buy a DJ mixer, which has a turntable preamp built in, as does any "integrated receiver" which is basically a tuner/phono preamp/amplifier combo in one box.

My pioneer pl-200 doesn't play loud enough through my pioneer vsx-521-k receiver


The PL-200 has no pre amp and your VSX-521 has no phono input. You need an RIAA preamp.

Pulsating in my speakers. sounds fine but I know it cant be healthy for my speakers , you really notice it in between tracks , I have a new stylus, tried both phono inputs, Pioneer PL-10, nothing fancy,...


it sound like bass rumble ( or bass feedback) to me, try locating your turntable further away from the speakers if possible, and make sure it is isolated from the table or what ever it is sitting on, by some sort of rubber feet.

VSX504S volume has become very soft


soft meaning - barely audible? in that case either u have a defective loudspeaker or a defective audio power amp section. I suspect the latter, so what i suggest is - get it checked. U could try opening it up urself and mess with it if u plan to buy a new one :-)

Pioneer pl-200 turntable one channel is dull and muffled


I think we need to do more diagnosis. Did you try swapping the channel cables Left-to-Right so you're sure it is in the TT and not in your Phono preamp?
If it's still in the TT and always on the same channel with two different cartridges you probably have a wire problem in the tonearm/shell or interface between them.

PL-88FS with modern HDMI Receiver


Hi...
If the new receiver doesnt have a specific input in back labeled "phono" , You WILL need a preamp for the phono. Then plug the preamp into the AUX or other available input
