You have either a faulty cartridge or the earth connections to the cartridge are hooked up to the ones for the channels. Another possibility is a faulty lead between the amp and deck.

SOURCE: fixing a Kenwood KD 491F turntable

The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today. You will need whats called a phono preamp, and one should still be available from Radio shack. Or you can go here to find out more about them: http://www.phonopreamps.com/ To reseat the belt, take off the rubber mat on the turntabe disc. Install the belt around the inside ridge, there should be a couple of holes on the platter disc. Install the patter back onto the center spindle. Turn the platter around till you see the motor pully through one of the holes in the platter. Take the belt that is around the turntable platter, and pull it over to the motor pulley. Good Luck

There should be a set screw that you can tighten in order to adjust the height return. If you do not have anything like this, perhaps your record is raised too much. How thick is your rubber mat? Do you have any other mats sitting on top of this?

SOURCE: Kenwood KD-76F Turntable Problem

There is an adjustment in the postion sensor switch of the tone arm located under the support housing. BE VERY CAREFULL in lifting or fliping the unit over. If you can lock the arm in postion please do so before proceding. There may be some dust in a optical sensor or the postion sensor switch may be loose and just need repostioning to the correct location. If your not technicaly inclinded I suggest a strong blast of air in this area may solve your dilemma, possibilty hair dryer(NO HEAT), air compressor(max 20 to 40psi) or a good seat of lungs.

SOURCE: turntable starts playing record middle 1st song

The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?

Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

Is it a belt drive?
If it is then unplug it take the rubber mat off use the holes in the platter to lift it off,then you'll see the belt lieing around somewhere put it back round the edge of the platter then the motor wheele. i'll finish this when u tell me wether or not it's a belt drive.

Cant get no sound from my Nad C162 pre amp connected to my C272 power amp , and ideas please?


First prove if it's a preamp problem or an amp problem. Plug one of your sources directly into the amp for a moment and play something VERY LOW in volume. If the amp is ok it will play VERY LOUDLY.

If so, look at the preamp and make sure it's not muted or a tape is selected.

Thanks for the answer - If we have 3 controls as Bass, Mid and Treble. If we keep those in 12 O Clock position, will the output level be equal. In using the Bass and Treble control only (if we have...


If all are in 12 o'clock position they are "flat" (nothing has been added or subtracted foam input signal) If you only have bass & treble, yes adjusting will affect "mids" but Mids change can go both ways dependent on increase or decrease of Bass and /or treble. By increasing bass you will pull some mids up also. By increasing treble you'll subtract some mids.

I just got one what is it an how does it work an how do i hook it up?


2 channel power amp
you will need additional equipment for this beast to work right.
1. you need a pre-amp, all audio connections go into the preamp which control sorces, volm, bass and treble.
2. out from the preamp into the power amp and out to your speakers

3. you can freak it if you have an 1/8" stereo to RCA stereo plug in this caee you can play your ipod, phone or mp3 player thru this amp using your input device (ipod, phone or mp3 player ) like a preamp to control volm, bass and treble.

Hi, I have a NAD C162 Pre-Amp which I am using with a NAD C270 Poer Amp. Th problem is that the Pre-Amp doesn't seem to be driving the Power-Amp efficiently. By this I mean i need to turn the gain up...


Hello, I have an idea:
at the rear side of the NAD preamp there is a switch, it can be in mode MM or MC . Please check it whether it is in right position or not.

Good luck,

How to wire up kenwood ge-760 graphic to my


First of all connect the source, the tape or the DVD, to the input of the equaliser, use the output to connect to the AUX of the amplifier. make sure that the L&R are not crossed over. In case your amp has an in and out of the preamp section use then connect the source to the amplifiers input specified for the source like tape or DVD or TV and use the preamp output to the equaliser input and the output of the equaliser to the input of the main ampflier. Now the bass and treble of your amp can be set to the mid point - 12 noon position and use the boost or attenuation according to your choice of music. hope you find my advice helpful. Good day

Nad c370 problem....


Hi arda5
Did you try swapping speaker connections left for right on the back of the amp to isolate the problem. If the fault stays with the speaker, then that is where your problem is. Try this and get back to me here with the results.

Loss of Bass


Hi there, I would think that you have blown your bass drivers in the speakers. Sometime you may have a fuse which is blown in the speaker but this is not usual. Try on another speaker if you can.
