20 Most Recent Technics SL-BD20D Turntable Questions & Answers


Different cartridges put out various levels based upon their technology - make sure you are using the proper input for their output. A line level input 1V P-P won't work on most phono cartridges and will require a preamp to boost it to the higher level.

Take off the rubber mat and see if the belt is off the aluminum platter the record sits on you should be able to see the rubber belt when the mat is removed. If it is not there or broke it will need replaced.

The ground cable is usually a part of the audio cable. A red lead(right channel) and white lead(left channel) and a black lead. If there is no black lead, you can connect any wire to the metal portion of the turntable and the ground lead on your receiver. For more information, or should you have further question, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me through the website. Thank you.

There is really nothing else to it. If the drive belt is in tact, and properly installed, and the spindle motor is rotating properly, your turntable should rotate. There's nothing else that rotates the platter. Just make sure the belt is wrapped around the spindle motor.

I just checked my Technics turntable to be sure and there should be a thin black wire that comes out of the rear where the AC line cord connects. If you don't see a wire, someone may have clipped it off. You may have to disassemble you turntable enough to get access underneath and install a new wire.

Too causes of this problem. One the stylus is worn out. Two not enough pressure to the stylus. At the end of the arm is a weight this should move up or down. If you can see numbers on it increase it slowly to the higher numbers, trying it as you go. The trick is to apply the correct weight to keep the stylus in the grooves and not here a rumbling sound from too much pressure.

Hello,
You don't need the original ground wire for Technics SL-BD20D turntable,
any plain cable can be used for this purpose...
you should connect turntable to your pre amp,should be a "phone" input at the back...
here are some suggestions for grounding....
---------
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.
