no sound from turntable cartridge

I get no sound when I start playing my vynil disk while I am not recording but
trying to listen to the quality of the vynil before I attempt to record and convert
it so I can then record it on a CD. Is there a way I can do this without having
Audacity recording feature activated.

Thank You
