Not a TV

I just started. Tied following insructions

I have tried all of them
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 8 months ago

Okay, the Sony doesn't have a phono stage built in- which is what's causing you problems. A turntable is not the same as a "Line Level" source and as such it requires a "phono preamp" connected between it and a standard receiver. Do you have a phono stage/preamp in the loop?

A turntable by design is 40 db quieter than a CD player and also has an RIAA curve recorded onto the grooves of the vinyl, that is why a phono preamp is needed. A suitable preamp for a standard MM cartridges can be purchased at Best Buy at the link below for $20 and change:

Simply plug the turntable into the inputs on the preamp, and then from the "line outs" on the preamp to any of the inputs on the Sony receiver and the turntable will playback through the receiver as it should.
