Stanton STR8 150 turntable right output not working
Hi, I've got a pair of Stanton STR8-150s that have been sat at home for a year while I've been at University, I've just moved into a bigger room so have decided to bring them up with me and that's when I noticed the right output on one of the decks cuts out intermittently.
When it happens the right side headphone / speaker cuts out, sometimes completely and other times you can hear the track through it but at maybe 15% volume or so.
Anyone have any ideas what's causing this or how to fix it as apart from sitting for a year they have never been damaged to my knowledge?

To really be sure, under a microscope to look at the diamiond, but i haven\'t seen one channel oke and one chanel no sound. Then it should allways makes sound , only ckrackling. So be sure your wires are fit by tightening the connection and measure your output till the last connection with your stylus and move your connections a bit , if that\'s allright , then is it a cable or input from something outside your tt. But have you checked it also with first cleaning your needle well and another record and lift each side of the turntable a bit. Sometimes is one dust particle enough, even with a new stylus. Is your output line or phono? O a technics, take the whole needle out and those fours pins you have to lubricate with right stuf ( a tiny bit ) and move them in and out and you havent cheked the connection with your om/concorde, but i think that one pin won\'t come out totally, so pull a bit ( after lubrication ) push them all inside and watch if they come all four back. And pls replace those terrible quality rca cables from technics, they are crap and a nice pair from another brand is only 30 euro a pair, but you needle ain\'t broke for sure and does it work with another unit?.......(still clean and lubricate the stuff).I hear from you.
If home amp has a phono input and you have no turntable, plug the output of the MP3 player into the phono input and begin with the volume turned all the way down. If you do not have a phono input, you can plug something like a DJ mixer in to get that extra level of amplification you want for comfortable listening. If you do that, the MP3 player would plug into the turntable input and the mixer output would go to the available line level input of the home amp.
The CD player has either the coaxial connector, which is not common for home amps, and a pair of "RCA" jacks (right and left) which are. The CD output can be connected to any avaialble line level input, such as anunused "Aux", "Tape In" "MD/VCR audio in, etc.
If you lower the tonearm to the record surface, and it just slides towards the center, chances are the stylus(needle) is either broken or covered with dust. Clean and inspect. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.
The only output from the turntable is the low-level signal from the cartridge. Most likely, the receiver you've hooked it to doesn't have a phono input. Many receivers today don't come with one, and if you connect the turntable to a line-level input you get either very low volume or none at all, depending on the cartridge. What you'll need is a turntable preamp to boost the output to line level so the receiver will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp, available online and in some stores. You can also find preamps online (here's one at Amazon). With the preamp connected you can use any free input on the receiver.
yes you need an amplifier with or without phono input.
your turntable has three types of output
1.phono output (can connect to the phono input of an amplifier which has a phono input)
2. line level output [can connect to ( aux,cd,tape,tunner what u prefer) an amplifierwhich has these inputs] there is a selection switch for phono or line level output on the back side
3. and usb( to computer)
sounds like dodgy internal cabling u need a volt meter to check between cartrigde and main outs also have you checked if you have an output from cartrigde on both channels you will need to swap leads on bak ov cartridge itself but b carefull pins are delicate
