As LOCAUSS stated, you have to connect to the following:

1) Turntable --> PHONO (input)

or if you do not have a PHONO input, then you have to buy a PHONO PRE-AMP, from there...

1) Turntable --> Input on Pre-Amp --> Output from Pre-amp goes to INPUT of either Line, CD, Aux, or Tape input on receiver/amp/system.

Hope this helps.

I has the same problem. You must plug it in into your PHONO receiver. If you do not have a PHONO line in, you have to buy a Phono PreAmp at Guitar Center and once you set it up, you can then plug it into any input. Good Luck

Please let me know how your turntable is connected to the music system. I mean, to which input ? (Tape/Aux/Phono/VCR/CD) ?

As a test, switch the right and left RCA cables from the turntable to the amp. If the problem reverses, the issue is in the turntable or with the cables. If it stays the same, its a problem with the amp.

Just bought a new Shure high performance stylus for my Technics SL-1200MK2. After a few weeks of use, while a record is playing the volume on the left channel will drop significantly. If I take the...


it could be two things:
1.the tone arm wires that connect to the head shell (blue-red-green-white i think)
2. the needle arm has twisted round
Put it on the other deck if you've got one & see if it does it.
look right at the end of the needle tip,& see if it's straight & pointing down, if not carefully twist the needle arm round until it is,& push it into back in to the cartridge a little bit.

I have sl-1200mk2, and the signal does not come in


The first thing to is try to eliminate the cartridge as a cause of the fault. You can do this by swapping the connections around on the cartridge. If you get the weakness still on the Red cable you know it is that. Solder joints do cause trouble, often the earth is the problem. Try resoldering the joints. Or replace the entire cable as there might be a break.
