Is it Marantz???? The Marantz 880 doesn't have an input for PHONO. A traditional turntable will require a PHONO preamp between it and any Line Level input on the receiver.

Muted? Look at the front panel for clues. Maybe sure no tapes or unattached inputs are selected. Try the test tones to prove it works.

I HAVE A MARANTZ SR880. WHEN I SWITCH IT ON, IT STAYS ON STANDBY MODE. WHEN I SELECT INPUT, IT CLICKS AND THE STANDBY LIGHT FLICKERS. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?


Hi,
Possibilities for dry soldering. its a Common problem with this model. Also can happen because of aging . Its tedous procees to open and repair the av receivers. Its better to find expert who can do it for you. i think Marantz authorized service center will not do this as its an out dated model .

Turntables required a specific input all of their own, so you can't connect the turntable cables to any other input besides a "phonograph" or "turntable" Chances are the Sylvania Home Theater System does not have the specific turntable inputs.

I have a Pioneer VSX-515 6.1 system and I am trying to hook up my phono to it. I am not sure which input to use. Right now the only input I have is my CD player.


Like many newer receivers, this model doesn't have a phono input. I guess manufacturers think nobody listens to vinyl today. You can still hook a turntable to one of the extra audio inputs on this unit, but you'll need a phono preamp. The output level from the turntable is too low to drive a "line level" input directly, and the preamp boosts and equalizes the signal so it will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp; you can order online or find it in some of their stores. Many other sources are available online, and if you have a good stereo shop in your area they probably stock one. Plug the turntable to the preamp input, connect the preamp output to the receiver and that's it. You'll also need an AC outlet nearby as the preamp needs power.

My stereo says 'muted' and does not work except when in reverse


They have a speed dependent volume so it does have wheel speed sensor input which could cause the wierd reverse only operation. It sounds like a software problem-I would try version coding the head unit(which will have to be done if you have a c.d. player or telephone in the car. Try to unmute it from the steering wheel buttons it may think there is a phone in the car and is muting the radio for phone operation. Your best bet is to pull codes and version code with a s.d.s. machine or at least a hand held tester but the majority of after market scan tools will not communicate with the d2b system which is your radio or sound system. good luck I hope I have been helpful

Can't seem to get any music from the turntable


Do you have the ground wire from the Turntable hooked up to the receivers ground terminal? it's a screw down silver nut and should be next to the Phono input. You are just lacking a ground from the turntable to the receiver. If you don't see a wire from the turntable, look around the chasis of the unit and you will fins it. Hope this helps

No Amplified Sound Coming Out...

Turntables need a preamp due to their very low output compared to modern components. The link above is the one I use. Try connecting to your receiver's phono input if you have one, also try the aux input. If neither of those work, obtain a preamp and you will soon be scratching with the best of them.

I am trying to hook a turntable to RXV363 amplifier. The RXV363 does not have RCA jack inputs labeled for a turntable. I tried using the DVD and DVR Input. I think the problem is there is no an adequate...


You need a phono pre amp to plug onto the phono leads of your turn table then into any input on the amp.A Turntable has a much lower output than cd or any other device so needs to be boosted,when you pluged it in I bet the sound was awfull.Buy the best phono stage you can .
hope this helps.
