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.

I just plugged a turntable into the accessory jacks on my Sharp XL-HP515 so that I can play some of my old LP's. I've got to turn the volume up all the way to hear it and it's still very quiet. Any idea...


If you're using an old-school turntable that doesn't contain a phono preamp that will happen.

A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose.


Recent AV Receivers generally do not.

The result would be very low, tinny sound.


If so, you need to get an external Phono Preamplifier.

I have a memorex stereo, turntable, 3 cd changer etc. The standby light comes on but no sound, it is only 2 yrs old..


Sometimes you have to unplug it for about 30 seconds, then when you plug it in press the power on button. If there is still no sound, check the speaker connections on the back they sometimes come loose.

Low Volume from right speaker of entertainment center - turntable only


Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...

There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..

If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.

If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..

So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
or
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
or
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...
