Which speakers do you have connected?
if your speakers are too "heavy" in terms of Ohm, this is the cause.

I have connected Pioneer PL-990 turntable to SX-255R receiver through PHONO but get static and distortion through speakers. Manual says to connect to AUX not PHONO but cannot see AUX on receiver. Any...

You need to hook it up to another analog input other than the phono input. The record player has a built in preamp, and the receiver's phono input has a separate preamp for non-amplified players. You cannot have the two hooked to each other.

Turntable hookup to AUX or CD (no Phono input) only producing very weak sound, even at full volume

You are doing nothing wrong at all. It's just that as you say it has no phono input. Which means the sockets you have will NOT amplify the signal. So you need to buy a magnetic cartridge pre-amp and once connected to the aux the weak signal will be at the normal level.

Have changed headunit and also speakers..but still got my problem..plays ok till i up the volume then the headunit reboots by itself ... help please

Check the DC voltage at the Yellow and red wire to see whether it falls down when you raise the volume. If you have no meter to check, then buy a battery tester from auto parts shop. If the voltage falls down with volume, check the fuse or contacts in the fuse box.

If you receiver doesn't have phono inputs,you will need to buy an inline phono amplifier.Phono inputs have a built in amplifier,all others don't.Try they don't carry them,they will tell you who does.

All you have to do is connect the coaxial out from pc to any audio i/p at the back of vsx d512.but ensure you select the right channel to play the audio ( eg. tape i/p select tape at front control, aux i/p select the aux at front control )
