Since the input of the phono is of very high impedance and of high gain it is important that the signal is fully protected from any possible induced stray signals of AC or EMI.
Hence the cables must be firmly in place to the Amplifier til there is no hum. If there is hum and the hum reduces as you touch the output pins the outer ground pins of RCA, then reverse the power plug of the turntable. If this wont improve then a ground must be connected externally.
Hoever if none of these prove it is possible that the shield to the stylus is faulty, the lines of the connecting output is faulty.
Make that the phono of the amplifier does not have any hum with the input removed. If so the preamp has a faulty.

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.

Volume Level on Memorex 9299M 4-in-1 Turntable System Way Too Low

It's the nature of the all-in-one turntable beast to be low fi and low performance. Too much volume and vibration would feed back through the turntable.

It does have a Line Out that you could slave over to REAL electronics and speakers.

Low volume

Most of the newer receivers do not have PHONO inputs. You would have to use external pre-amp with the turntable.

I can't hook up a turntable without getting bad Feedback

Sounds like the table is to close to the speakers!
Also if you boost the bass and/or loudness button
on specially if the speakers are "big" with large woofers! Try also extra "feet" below the table for more isolation can help!

I have a new Yamaha RX-V365 receiver and an older technics turntable, regardless of input setup I cannot get any volume from the turntable, yet all other inputs like CD, Tuner are fine....amp issues in...

Some turn tables do not have a built in amp, especially the older ones, the sound goes from the needle to the output. If the amp your are using does not have a designated phono, turn table, input it may not have the turn table pre-amp built in. Some turn tables have to be grounded to the amp to work properly.

One of my DJ turntables = only left side stereo sound

need to narrow it down, using 1 turn table ONLY with the mixer on channel 1 (the chanel that is working) to test reciever is working properly and sound working on both side of the speakers, this eliminate the first turn table. Next, disconnect the working turn table (1) and connect your second turn table to the same chanel and see if you getting the sound coming chanel 1 just as your first turn table did. If you getting sound coming out from turn table on ch1 than is not the turn table issue. It will be you mixer having problems. You cant solve the problems having everything connected. Testing one turn table at a time using working chanel on the mixer to see if both turn table working properly. If you use the same chanel testing both turn table and the second one does not work than it will be one of your turn table is faulty. Note: if you find and test both of your turn table is working properly than it will be your mixer. good luck and hope that help..

Can a turntable be hooked up to this receiver?

The Aux function is not meant for that purpose.The turntables/Record Players being way too old,now a days the amplifiers do not come with PHONO function that was specially used for playing Records/For turntables. Check if u have a phono function in your amplifier and if not then buy another amplifier with Phono function coz you need a ground wire [that comes out from the turn table] also to be attached to the amplifier and then only you can get a proper sound.

Does your receiver have a dedicated phono input? If not you'll need to use a preamp between the turntable and receiver. Your other turntable may have a preamp built in and the Technics not.

If this does not help, please post the brand and model of both your receiver and your other turntable.
