Connect weaker wires between speakers and receiver. Positive to positive and negative to negative for best sound.
Connect turn table RCA jacks to receiver PHONO input, L & R.
Connect devices to power and set receiver to PHONO, go.

SOURCE: no sound coming from reciever from tv

Make sure connections are going-audio out from tv to d-tv/cbl in on back of reciever. Then turn on tv and turn reciever input to d-tv/cbl and make sure the input mode is on auto. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I am trying to hook together a computer and a turntable(Turntable has its own pre-amp) & I need a diagram on what wire gos where?

OK. Since there is a pre-amp, all you need to do is to connect pre-amp output to Line-in input on the PC. This may be a bit of challenge as the connector on the pre-amp and computer are of different types. Usually, you need a cable with RCA connectors on one end and 3.5mm stereo pin (same pin as you have for stereo headphones) on the other.

SOURCE: Problem w/ Panasonic SA-HT700 speakers

Let me show how to resolve your problem since you are not very good at this system.
A/V troubleshooting 101:
Remember the 2 speakers that you mentioned before that it worked.First,locate the one speaker output that work for you before(ex. front left)you will use this speaker output to connect each one of the speaker and leave the system on either tuner(radio with a proper station=101.3) or a dvd with sound,this way,you are troubleshooting two things for sure A. be sure all your speakers do work and B. your source is working.
After you test all the speakers with the same speaker output which had confirmed the speakers are working,that particular speaker output is working and also your source is working,send me an email and i will show the next step.
However,for any reason,if one of those speaker got no sound from the same speaker output connection,please do not waste anymore time,should take it back to the place you bought it from and get our money back and try to buy the A/V system separately(A/V receiver with speakers in one package, separate dvd player,etc.)

SOURCE: hook up wireless speakers

I'm assuming the wireless speakers you have utilize an RCA jack to connect to the receiver.


The good news is yes, you can use them on your receiver. The bad news is that the only output on your receiver is "VIDEO OUT" so whatever you want to watch or hear on the wireless speakers must be connected to the "VIDEO INPUT".

If the wireless speaker module uses speaker wire to connect to a receiver you will simply tap into the surround thumb clip speaker jacks.

I will add that wireless speakers tend to be disappointing when used in home theater.

I need a service manual for the BSR McDonald CA 50 turntable

BSR tended to make old style turntables, ones with a 78rpm speed on. I don't the model in question, but if it is a one of these, there's not much to them. Basically a rubber tyre runs inside the rim of the platter, while the tyre is pushed on a mains powered motor, in at least 3 different positions (depending on the speed). The tyre moves up and down depending which speed is selected.
Speed faults are caused by either a bad motor, or muck, oil, or grease in it.
A faulty tyre that is worn and doesn't push on the motor or platter anymore or not hard enough. Plus of course tyre height setting wrong.

My bsr McDonald 6500 turn table was completely seized then I applied some wd40. I also removed the spindle and c clip. It moves now if I use some force not a smooth spin at all and I still can't get it off...

Im wondering if you can look underneath there may be cat hair or string wrapped around the shaft, that would prevent it from turning smoothly.
When you take the bottom off, I suggest you take a picture of it.. that way you will know how it goes back together easier.

Turntable troubleshooting

A loud hum is usually from an earth problem (in fact 'not earthed')
So your best bet seems to try the 2nd pre-amp again, and see if there is a pin or connector for an earth link. Mine earths to the chassis of my main amp.

Sl-db27u technics form the late 80's Ground Wire

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.

Bsr McDonald 25cx turntable sounds terrible when I try to play a record.

Hard to say, but could be either a faulty cartridge or the wires connected are wrong or off.

JVC auto return turntABLE - mODEL al-a95bk

when you said "no sound enough to enjoy listening" did you mean that you could hear something coming thru the speakers, but it isn't loud enough? if so, you may be plugging the turntable into a "ceramic" phono input on your stereo. it may be that your stereo doesn't have a pre-amplifier on the phono inputs. Ceramic tonearm cartridges (the part that holds the stylus - which you may call the needle) have enough output level to drive an amplifier. if your cartridge is magnetic, the output is very low compared o the ceramic. the trade off is that magnetic cartridges have a much wider dynamic range than the ceramic, and when properly pre-amplified, sound MUCH better than a ceramic unit. you can probably find a separate pre-amp at radio shack (i know they sold them several years ago). you plug the turntable into the inputs of the pre-amp, then plug the pre-amps output into your stereo. hope this helps.
