You'll want to use the AUX, because it, for sure, does not have any RIAA equalization, which the phono input may or may not have.

Short answer: Plug the mp3 player into the AUX inputs.

Checked fuses then sprayed contact cleaner on the fuses and the fuse holders. The speakers began to work correctly.

SOURCE: My Technics stereo system ...the display screen shows nothing

The question is, do you hear any sound? Is just the display off or is the entire unit shutdown? Can you tell?

These displays are known to develope poor solder connections at the power input and ground pins. If you can solder, open up the unit (unplugged of course) and examine the pins for the display. This will be on the PC board attached to the front panel. The pins at either end of a long line of pins will be the power and ground pins. Reasolder those pins, taking care not to short the pins together and try the unit once done. If that does not resolve the problem (assuming it is just a display problem), update this with as many details as you can about the behavior of the unit and we'll look further.

SOURCE: My Technics sa GX350 tuner

Hi mate, had the same problem with my amp.. Take the top off and there is a fan at the back, there are 2 piece's of copper flat wire that touch together and these do not touch anymore so when its turned up or the bass gets stronger it cuts off as the fan should kick in at this point. If you can get these to touch again (bend them) then the problem will be gone!! I have had to do this a few times now though so this is not a long term fix.. I may try soldering!

Good Morning, I have a Technique Technics SA DX940 receiver which hums loudly whenever it is switched to "Phono" for playing the turntable. The turntable has been tested and works well. In fact, the r


What type of turntable do you have? Some turntables must be grounded to the ground screw on the receiver. It may be the selector that needs to be cleaned. Use tuner spay cleaner (if you can still find some around) , also clean the RCA inputs. . If that does not work.. you may have to replace the receiver. The cost to repair is not worth it .

Cannot play my ipod through my technics amp


You would need a mini jack to stereo rca wire. Insert the mini jack to your Ipod's headphones, then plug the stereo rca to your amp inputs. If it's a receiver, plug into any of the inputs (aux, tape etc) except "phono or turntable", then switch to respected input on the receiver. Be sure all volumes on both units are down during this process, then gradually turn up both volume to normal level.

I have an old Technics SA-GX300 receiver that works fine except that the screen indicates that muting is on (still produces volume but at much lower levels). I lost the remote to the receiver. Is there...


Reliance on the remote instead of walking across the room to touch the unit will not solve anything. On many receivers, Muting is cancelled if the volume knob is turned to a louder level. Try that.

There's a used original remote for $12 delivered on eBay right now.

I have just fitted a Technics SL BD20 Turntable to my new Panasonic SA-AKX50 system. I can't get much volume out of it when playing a record on the turntable. I have a black wire coming out of the back...


Does your NEW Panasonic SA-AKX50 have an input label "PHONO"? If not, it can't PRE-amplify and RIAA-equalize the tiny voltage signal produced by the phono cartridge.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

eBay always has some...

Hello i need help please..... I have a Technics SU-Z550 and SH-8055 Graphic Equalizer My amp has lost power... lots.! its working one channel louder than the other but the one which is louder still has...


If the same channel is dead on the EQ as is dead on the amp there may be a correlation.

Let's break this into its two parts.

1) SU-Z550: You don't say WHAT source(s) you tried to use on the CD/AUX, TUner and PHONO inputs. The external device itself could be the source of the low volume. Try swapping the Left and Right cables to see if it follows the source channel or stays with the amplifier channel.

Check the controls on the amp to make sure you understand each one's effect on the sound.

"PHONO" is literal and exclusively FOR A TURNTABLE - NOTHING ELSE - EVER.

2) SH-8055: Equalizers don't 'boost' sound, they modify its levels at various frequencies. To do that they should be connected into a Tape loop on your amp. OUTs go to IN's. Then you select the Tape Loop on the amp and that inserts the EQ into the signal path of whatever source you're listening to. It's actions are BEFORE any other amplifier controls such as volume, tone and balance. The EQ itself also has a Tape Loop to replace the one it occupies. Make sure it is not enabled unless you have a Tape Deck on it to use. Choose "SOURCE". The blue LED display is to show you frequencies are present in the program material.

Set all of its lighted band controls at midpoint prior to declaring it defective. EQ is like any spice - a little is good, a lot ruins the recipe.

I am planning to get an SA-DX930. How old is it? can it be hooked to a phonograph and a cd burner to copy music from albums? what is the total wattage? Thanks, Ted Vidan


1. the manual date is 1999 if that tells you anything
2. It has a native Phono Preamp for that old-school turntable
3. CD Burner: yes. Attach it in the Tape Loop and optical digital input for playback.

The CD recorder should also have digital input(s) so you can can capture digital audio from a variety of sources.

HOW CAN I HOOK UP MY IPOD TO MY RECEIVER


Use a phono to RCA stereo jack (pic below) and hook one end to the head phone jack on your ipod and the other ends to your amplifier aux or tape input and adjust the volume to low on the ipod - select the input on the stereo - Aux or tape in.
You'll need this type of cable

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.

sounds like the speaker protection relay is operating probably from a dc condition appearing on power amplifiers outputs. probable cause is dry solder joints to the output stages. will need some reworking of the PA stage soldering to fix.
