Old Turntable Philips

Sup guys, I just bought an old panasonic turntable. My problem is the following:

when I use the radio function the stereo works perfectly, both left and right channel... but when I use the LP function, the right channel works perfectly but the left channel sound extremely low, it doesn't matter if I turn all the balance to the left it still sounds low... and when I turn the balance to the middle, the left channel almost mutes itself :(
I know its old piece of equipment, bought it for about 25 bucks but idk maybe it has a solution...

thanks

You may have a bad stylus (needle), it can cause just that type of problem. Find a service center near you and see if they can get a replacement for you. They are very easy to replace, but very difficult to find.

Hope this helps.

I have an compact disc stereo system, disc,radio works. phono not working, why ?


I live in California but I do have a memorex system with the same components. My belt fell off my turntable so it didn't turn. It took a bit of patience but I was able to get the belt back on. The turntable is held down by a clip on the spindle. The belt might have to be replaced if it keeps falling off. It will do that if its been used alot. While the turntable is off, if you move the arm you can see if the turntable motor will turn on too. That would be the only other problem you can have on that unit. The repair cost might be more than what the unit cost. Just be patient and careful and you probably can fix it yourself.

Very little volumn no groun d on stereo - do i


I can't find a reference to the TT-01, but if it's an old school turntable you need to run it through a Phono preamp.

It would help to know what electronics you're using as THAT is where the volume comes from.

The TT should be connected to a specific PHONO input as it includes special preamplification for a Phono cartridge and frequency shaping for the way LP's are recorded (Google RIAA). I imagine it may sound pretty tinny as you have it now.

Technics 1210 mk2 motor problem


Depends on if it's a belt drive turntable or direct drive.
If a belt one, there will either be a speed adjuster on the top of the motor, or one on a PC Board. And yes apart from setting the speed, it as straightforward as taking the old one out and wiring the new one in.
The direct drive, will also have to be adjusted for speed too.

Old Philips turntable 312 No sound


I am in a similar situation. I recently discovered that exact model turntable in our storage room. The Philips 312. While looking it over, I noticed the stylus is broken. I was wondering where you purchased yours?

Turntable will not turn (spin)


It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

Connecting a turn table to a micro stereo system


You will need the following to connect this to that system:

1) Phono Pre-amp
2) 3.5mm to RCA adapter or 3.5mm 'Y' cable to RCA
3) Turntable

Your turntable will connect to the Phono Pre-Amp input. This pre-amp will also have an output. This output is RCA, from here you connect to your system using the 3.5mm adapter or cable.

That's it.
