Hi again,

Appreciate the postback and additional information. Have you tried running the turntable without the cartridge/needle? If the buzzing is still there, try removing then the new wires that you have installed. Since it is a process of elimination, the point where the buzzing disappears would be the point of further diagnosis then.

It it were a hum, the it is possibly spillage of the AC power supply, but since it is a buzz, then it is relatively high frequency.

Pioneer Pl990 turntable sounds awful.... I have a pioneer pl 990 record player connected to a pioneer amplifier and a sony CD player. when I play an LP, the sound is bass heavy and I can hardly hear t

When the turntable plays, do you get a howling bass heavy sound? Have you tried turning down the volume and bass? If that corrects the problem, you have what's known as Acoustic Feedback. Check to make sure the tonearm is properly set up first. If it is, please visit my website at You may contact me there. Thank you.

Too much bass

I didn't know that a turntable had bass control on it. If it has why not turn the bass down? I think it is your receiver not the turntable

New Records sound is bad

Very strange! Apart from the fact that new albums could be faulty which seems unlikely, the only thing I can suggest is that they could be building up static. So I should look into ways of getting shut of that. If not you could adjust the weight on the arm, to see if that cures the problem.

Technics SL-1210Mk2 Sound is very clear but low frequencies are very POOR.Other sources are checked i think the problem comes from the turntable. I replace my old phono pre amp with rolls VP29 and i check...

Possible that the negative feedback amplification is not compensating to the preamp.
The cartridges must match with the preamp so that the full frequency response is received.
If you can add along an equaliser to you phono path on way to the amplifier , the compensation can be set up to the room accoustics and taste.
Alteration of the input impedance to the amplifier with a network can also help but an equaliser might be tthe best for you

I'm unable to adjust the volume on this turntable. I think if I replaced the volume control it would work, but I just can't find parts online for any of the Crosley turntables. Thank You.

Before you replace the volume control just try spraying the contacts (or the whole thing if you can't get to them) with Servisol Video 40. As sometimes dirt and dust gets in an makes it sound like the entire sound is being cutt off yet sometimes breaks in as you turn the control!

Humming noise/ feedback

your mixer should be grounded by the power cord, and the decks have a seperate ground wire which connects, usually on a screw terminal, to the mixer, which provides the ground for the decks. I would try the headshells to make sure they are tight and connected correctly also make sure the power socket on the wall is earthed properly.

How did the internal wiring come out? Was it pulled, does it look like someone attempted to repair it, and didn't do a good job? Unfortunately, you have to open up the unit to see where exactly those wires were removed from. Those are the tonearm wires, which attach to the PCB which distributes the sound to the RCA cables. If those were pulled out from the tonearm, you have to have the entire tonearm replaced (not diy work). If it came loose from the board - VERY ODD that all 5 cables came loose, but it was bought on ebay, so anything is possible - you need to open up the turntable and solder the cables back (easier said than done). Yes, the black wire is the ground. I suggest you take it to a qualified service center for a diagnosis. You might be able to recover the costs from the seller. Hope you didn't leave any feedback as of yet. It might be the only thing you can hold over the seller's head.
