At the back of your mixer you should have a switch to change the frequency for a turntable. Also make sure you have the turntable's earth (ground) wire connected.

One of my DJ turntables = only left side stereo sound


need to narrow it down, using 1 turn table ONLY with the mixer on channel 1 (the chanel that is working) to test reciever is working properly and sound working on both side of the speakers, this eliminate the first turn table. Next, disconnect the working turn table (1) and connect your second turn table to the same chanel and see if you getting the sound coming chanel 1 just as your first turn table did. If you getting sound coming out from turn table on ch1 than is not the turn table issue. It will be you mixer having problems. You cant solve the problems having everything connected. Testing one turn table at a time using working chanel on the mixer to see if both turn table working properly. If you use the same chanel testing both turn table and the second one does not work than it will be one of your turn table is faulty. Note: if you find and test both of your turn table is working properly than it will be your mixer. good luck and hope that help..

Technics SL1500 will not connect to new Sony STR-DH100 receiver


Unfortunately, a turntable runs on a different frequency, and if there is no button at the back of your receiver to change the frequency setting on that channel, it wont give you any sound. the best bet is to go to your music store and purchase a small DJ mixer. connect that to your receiver, and run the turntable through your mixer. the mixer will have the neccesary flip switches and "ground" connections

Cant connect my Numark PT-01 to my Numark DM950 mixer


What do you mean it didn't work? What happened? Are you getting no sound, did the plugs not fit? Please be more specific.

If you are not getting any sound, make sure you connected to the LINE input of the mixer - the PT01 has Line Level outputs, so you CANNOT connect it to the Phono input, as the signal will be too hot for the mixer - so make sure it is in the LINE INPUT. Also make sure the toggle switch on the mixer is set to LINE. There is nothing else to this set up, raise volumes, and that's it. It's very simple.

Dj decks-no sound


You didn't state if you purchased this used or new. If used, maybe the tonearm or the rca cables are bad. Or, if you set it up inccorectly.

Just to be sure...

TURNTABLE -> MIXER PHONO INPUT (CH1 or CH2) -> OUTPUT MIXER (MAIN OUT) -> STEREO INPUT (AUX IN or LINE IN).

Make sure you have the line selected properly on your receiver, and if you have a tape function, press the button in and out. Sometimes this will affect the sound. Now, check to see if your getting any signal to your mixer. Make sure the toggle switch on your mixer is set for PHONO and not LINE. Raise all volumes, including heapdhone, and see if you hear or see anything on the levels.

If all is good, but no signal going to mixer, then you might have a bad tonearm or RCA cables....

To check, disconnect the cartridge/headshell from your tonearm. Look inside the tonearm, and you'll see 4 gold plated prongs. Make sure they are all evenly protruding. Also make sure they are all a shiny. If you see any black substance on any of the prongs, they need to be cleaned. If any look like they are stuck, and not sticking out like the other ones, this would also cause an issue. This cannot be repaired. You can try to get the prong to come out, but if it does not work, you will have to replace the tonearm.

If everything with the tonearm looks good, then the issue might be the RCA cables. There is no easy way to check this, other than opening up the turntable. This is not easy, and I do not recommend.

Let me know how it turns out.

Home stereo audio problems


Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?

Can you please update this with your connections. I assume that you are connecting the turntables to the mixer? Verify that the mixer is set to send out true stereo. What mixer are you using?
Note that most mixers "pan" all of the channels to the center sending out mono to the left and right. In most live shows, it makes no sense to send out true stereo. The left and right are for the speaker chains. In order to get true stereo out of the mixer, you wil need to pan the input channel for the left side all the way to the left and the input for the right channel to the right.

Turntable problem


You will need a phono preamp. Ipods, radios and cd players all give out a LINE level signal..which means you can plug headphones or speakers, adjust volume and be set. A turntable needs a phono preamp. Usually a dj mixer or stereo receiver with a phono input is all that is needed. A simple phono pre amp is like $20 from radio shack.

keep me posted.
