Check the continuity in your cables. you will need a multimeter or something else to check the cables. the multimeter is about $10 or so. other than that, make sure that your turntable is actually giving output and that the pre amp is both recieving and sending(same with the regular amp. and make sure that the levels are up on everything and the speakers connected properly etc. you probably know this already, but sometimes a good, friendly reminder helps. good luck!!

The volume on technics SL-BD22 turntable will not turn up and stays at one volume


Since the turntable itself doesn't have a volume control the problem is with the amp it is connected to. It should be connected to an amp with a dedicated phono socket. It's no use connecting it to a tape or aux or CD socket. These sockets do not have a built in pre-amp for the magnetic cartridge. If your amp doesn't have a dedicated phono socket then you can buy a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp that will plug into a tape socket etc on the amp and have the deck plugged into it. If plugged into a none dedicated socket though you can hear it, the volume will be very low compared to other sources. If you have got it plugged into a dedicated phono socket and the volume is still low, then the internal built pre-amp inside your amp for the deck has failed and will need to be repaired. The pre-amp failure will not effect any other functions of the amp.

Cannot hook up sound to surround sound , everything else works, cd player, radio, tapedeck. just the turntable does not work. any suggestions? deb


Hi, you need to connect the turntable to your amp via a phono input connection. If no phono input available then a pre amp needs to be used between turntable and amp to up the signal. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

Connected to turn table. having sound problem. At 99, sound hardly audible.


The bose as most all in one systems do not have an inbuilt phono stage. Phono especially MM type have a very low signal and an eq curve that gets altered in the phono stage. Without a phono stage (known as a phon pre amp) you will not get much fun from your turntable. To connect : turntable out - into phono preamp - phono pre amp out into bose line in/aux in

Technic 1210 deck


Make sure your 2nd turntable is connected to the PHONO input of your DJ Mixer or Receiver. If you have it connected to LINE IN or AUX IN, the turntable will be very low, as this model requires a phono pre-amp to amplify it's signal.

If this is set up correctly, then you might want to check your cartridge. Can you swap the cartridges out to see if the problem remains on the same turntable, or if it switches to the other turntable. If it switches, then you know the problem is with the cartridges.

If that checks out ok, you might have an issue with the RCA cables or Tonearm or both. At this stage, I would suggest taking it to a service center for assistance.

Technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver


The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

Instruction manual for ministry of sound mixing decks


What are Ministry of Sound mixing decks? I am familiar with MOS, but was not aware they manufactured mixing decks?

Are you connecting these to a DJ mixer, or a Home Receiver?

If it's going through a home receiver, make sure you have them connected to the PHONO input on your receiver. If your receiver does not have a phono input, and you are connecting to the LINE IN or AUX IN section on the rear, you will not hear much. Most turntables require a pre-amplified signal, and only the PHONO input has this option. So, you will need to purchase a PHONO PRE-AMP, and connect your turntable to it, then connect the PHONO pre-amp to the LINE IN.

If you are connecting to a DJ mixer... same thing. Make sure you have them connected to the PHONO INPUT on the mixer. If you still don't get anything, then there might be something wrong with your mixer.

If you could clarify you exact set up, and the EXACT models, we can help you better.

No music


Where do you have the turntable connected? Is it going into a DJ Mixer, a Receiver, or a Power Amp?

No matter the unit, make sure you have it plugged into the PHONO INPUT connection on the rear. If your receiver/amp does not have this, then you will need a PHONO PRE-AMP - The turntable connects to the PHONO PRE-AMP, and the PRE-AMP connects to the LINE IN or AUX IN of your receiver.

If you are connected to the PHONO INPUT of your mixer/receiver/amp, then the problem might be one of the following on the turntable:

1) Tonearm
2) RCA Cables
3) Cartridge

There is no easy way to see which one of these is the culprit, it's just a matter of elimination.

But, you didn't provide much information. If you can be more specific as to how you have your turntable connected, what kind of cartridge your using, and whether or not, you've determined that the problem is indeed the turntable and not your mixer/receiver/amp, or even your speakers. This would help in determining what the issue might be.

Low Audio


You need to connect the turntable to a PHONO input on your amplifier. Not all amplifiers have a phono input, if yours doesn't you need to get an RIAA pre-amp to plug your deck into & this connects to your amplifier.

This is because although the audio outputs on the turntable look the same as all the other components, they are very different. The signal has not been amplified up to line-level like tuners, CD players, tape decks, etc. You need to get this thin, weak signal boosted.

Your 3 options are:

* Connect directly to the PHONO input on your amplifier if you have one. If you don't:
* Connect deck to a RIAA amp (also called a phono stage) then connect to any input EXCEPT phono on your amplifier
*Connect the deck to a DJ mixer then hook the mixer up to any input on the amp EXCEPT phono.
