Question about Denon DRA-275R

Audio Technica pl120 turntable

My turntable was working great, then all of a sudden it made a loud buzz and my left speaker is now nearly silent. All the other outputs work correctly, (i.e. tv, DVD, Cd) so I am assuming that something is not working right with the turntable. Please help, I am a record junkie and I am in desperate need of some tunes. Thanks

    I lost the ground wire for an old home sherwood stereo that I purchased about 15 years ago.

    The sound goes in and out or no sound at all. What can I do to resolve this?

Have you checked your cables from the turntable? It kind of sounds like you have lost the ground connection on that side, either in the cable or in the turntable itself. Perhaps at the wire going into the cartridge. You might check all these things. Good luck.

No sound through the built in speakers. Turntable turns fine and I can hear the record play but it does not transfer to the speakers. New needle makes no difference

Remove the 4 wires to the cartridge. With the system on. Put your finger on each of the wires separately. On two of the wires you should hear a buzz (one on each channel) on the others very little or perhaps a faint buzz.
If you hear the loud buzz(s) the amp inside the deck is working and you have either a faulty cartridge or have not connected the two wires right.
If you don't hear any buzz, the amp inside the unit is faulty. If the amp has other functions that do work (such as radio) then it is the pre-amp for the cartridge that has gone. As this will not affect the other functions.

I put a new cartridge and needle in my fr-d35 and hooked it up to an amp and speakers but the only sound is coming from the turntable itself everything is hooked up correctly and im using the phono channel...

What you need to do is disconect the turntable from the amp and touch the phono connectors of the amp. You should hear a buzz on each channel. If you don't then the pre-amp for the deck inside the amp is faulty. If OK plug the turntable back in to the amp and remove the connectors to the cartridge. With the amp on - touch each wire end cartridge connector. You should hear a buzz on the left with one wire and a buzz on the right with another wire. The other two wires are earth and will not probably give a responce. Again no buzz and there's a fault in the wires that connect to your amp. Or a fault inside the turntable itself.

Thorens TD160 right channel cuts out

Disconnect the wires from the cartridge. Then with the amp on touch each of the four wires with your finger. You should hear a loud buzz on two of the wires one on each channel. If you don't then the connections could be faulty. If you can hear the buzz, get someone else to move the wires connecting the deck to the unit. If you loose the buzz then something is poorly connected.
If all is good and the buzz is present no matter what you do, then either you have a bad connection to the cartridge or the cartridge is faulty.

GE Microwave (JVM1860CD001) control board buzzes.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Magnetron If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.
Exhaust Fan Motor If the microwave is loud when running the fan motor might be
Stirrer Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.
Turntable Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

I have a Boston Acoustics VR-500 Subwoofer with a problem. As soon as anything is plugged into the line level RCA jacks, the subwoofer produces a loud buzz/hum. I have tried connecting it to the subwoofer...

I'm thinking you have an open shield ground on the RCA input side. Connecting speaker inputs possibly restores the ground. Try connecting the high level inputs then disconnect the remote end of the cables (floating the grounds).

Then get out an ohmmeter and find that open circuitor or bad solder joint between RCA ground and real ground in the speaker's amplifier. Or.... if speaker ground kills the hum and you want to use RCA Line Level input to the sub, just connect one minus speaker output on your source amp to one minus on the sub's amp.

I have a JVC L-F210 turntable with an Audio-Technica (1001) cartridge. I suddenly stopped getting any sound. Connections seem OK. Any common things I should look for? Should I spend money on cartridge...

First you need to know if it's the turntable and not the amplifier or connections. Unplug the RCA Jacks right at the turntable. The male jack should be the one(s) going to the amplifier/receiver. Just holding your finger against the jack tip should give you a loud buzz out of your speakers. If not, the cabling, or more likely the switch selections on the amp are set improperly. It isn't likely at all that the cartridge is bad on both left and right channels. Check switch settings carefully.

KEF KIT100 Buzzing

You have a bad set of Audio output IC's for the sub. There is two of them. TDA7293 REPLACE BOTH!!!
There is 4 on one side of board,and 2 on other "also 1 small one" The the two are for the sub,the other 4 are for the main speakers/surround. They sell on Ebay for $6-10 each or a kit of all 6 for $25. I would replace all 6 on your system. To insure that the other's do not go bad after fixing the bad ones.
