Hello, I found a Pioneer PL-10 for $30 along with a collection of 80's butt rock records, so I jumped at the chance. It came with an Empire 3000e cartridge as well. (Is that bad, or good?)
Anyways, take it home and hook it up to my Yamaha CR-640 reciever. Left channel only. I reverse plugs and it only plays right. I plug my old turntable in and it plays fine. I lift the hood and the wires all seem to be plugged in and soldered correctly. When I place my fingers around the right RCA plug going to my amp I can hear a definite buzzing. (That is the channel no sound comes from).
Using headphones, I lift the needle and turn the volume all the way up. There is absolutely no signal from the RCA cable. I put the needle down after reducing volume and unplug the RCA cable that is playing music, and turn the amp all the way up again. No sound. What is wrong? I opened it up and all the wires are connected.
