Take the speaker wire from the left side and try it on the right side. IF the right side works , then your wire is bad. Also try swapping speakers Left to right connection and vice versa

Nothing should be connected to PHONO except a turntable.

Reverse the leads left-to-right and see where that takes you for the root. Might be a bad cable.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.


BUT, modern turntables like your come with their own preamplifiers, so they MUST be connected to a garden variety Line Level input like AUX (anything BUT Phono or it will overload).

"LP DOCK also has a line-level output for connecting to any home stereo with an AUX input"


As far as WHY your amplifier isn't making da music, that could be whole 'nother problem.


We'd need more details about it and the speakers to go there.

Don't run anything but a TURNTABLE through Phono. That's the only labeled input that's literal. Use any other Line Level input for the CD.

If you don't have anything connected to the Tape loop, use the Tape In connectors.

I have a phono preamp hooked up to my Yamaha receiver for a turntable. My tall speaker tipped over and knicked the receiver and now my turntable will not produce any sound. Could this have blown the phon...


Let's figure out which hardware is failing. Connect the phono preamp to the CD or tuner input to see if it works there. It should. If it does, your receiver is at fault. Did the front panel controls get damaged?

How did the turntable fare in this accident? As a basic test of its ability to produce sound, hook it directly to the CD input and raise the volume slowly while playing an LP. If it's alive you'll hear a very weak, tinny sound, but I assume you know that or you wouldn't have a phono preamp in the first place and would probably be asking why the TT sounds so poor. :-)

Sound only from left side speakers!


If you put the good channel from the deck into the right and then left phono imputs of your amp, the sound should come out from the left and right speakers. If it only comes out from the left, then the amp as a right hand channel fault. Now if other devices work on both channels, then it's the pre-amp for the phono socket that has a fault on it. You should be able to find this by following the wires from the phono socket. If you touch around that pre-amp you should get it to buzz on either channel (where it joins with the main pre-amp). Doing this with a screwdriver will pin-point where the faulty part is (working backwards). PS don't short anything by touching to bits of metal together with the screwdriver.
Magnetic cartridges need a small pre-amp before they can be past to the main pre-amp. That's why you can't hear anything with the deck plugged into another line socket.
If you get signal on both left and right speakers with the above test the deck is to blame.

Phono plays lower in volume than cd and tuner. Sounds ok i guess but is about a quarter to one third lower in volume. Is this normal ? Can I plug phono into cd jacks to check if any better ?


Hello. As per the post before me, if you have a receiver with a Phono input(many receivers don't have one anymore) the output of a phono cartridge is around 30 millivolts, vs 300 millivolts for a CD(10 times the amount) or any other line level device. A Phono preamp, also has RIAA(recording engineering standards)Equalization that provides the proper equalization for a Phono cartridge. As per the other post, yes, it will sound very low, and unnatural sounding. If the input you are plugging the turntable input into, doesn't say Phono, you can purchase an inexpensive Phono preamp made just for this very issue. You can try Radio Shack, or find something of better quality on the Internet.

Regards,

Dave

Old turntable works but is too quiet to hear


It sound like you may have to hook your turntable up to a phono input. Turntables have low level outputs. The phono input is designed to amplify this low level more than the cd/dvd inputs do. If you do not have a phono input, you can buy an external "phono preamp" online. Hope this helps.

Turntable connection


you can not connect a turn table in any other input source other than Phono input my friend. turntable has got very weak signal thathas to be pre-amplified before getting a signal just right for a CD/Tape DVD input. you require a phono am to get an audio signal.
