Have to tvs I want to use usb ports for bluetooth speakers I have. What do I buy? One is a Samsung and the other is a Panasonic.


Honestly the easiest way to do speakers for a tv is either a double male ended headphone jack, or yellow red to male headphone jack.

jbl roxy over ear headphones ref 430 need to install new cord. how do i open cans?


Hello.
Headphone speakers stop functioning properly when the wireconnections to the speaker are broken. This problem often develops when theheadphone cord gets jerked while being worn. The solder connection might alsodetach over time if it was not properly manufactured. The wire can bereconnected to the speaker with a soldering iron to repair the headphone. Beaware, though, that headphones are not designed to be user maintained in thisfashion. In some cases, it is difficult to get to the speaker due to the casingdesign.
Instructions and tools needed
Screwdriver or butter knife (depending on headphone design),Soldering iron, Electrical solder
1 Plug in the solderingiron. It takes a few minutes for it to get warm enough to be used.
2 Unscrew the screws holdingthe headphone casing over the speakers. This step applies only to models thatuse screws in the casing.
3 Insert the end of the butterknife into the seam on the headphone ear pieces. Pry the two halves of thecasing apart. This step is performed only on headphone models that do not usescrews in the casing.
4 Touch the tip of thesoldering iron to the electrical solder. A small drop should melt onto the tipof the iron.
5 Touch the tip of the soldering iron to the end of thedetached speaker wire inside the headphone speaker cavity. Try to get an evencoating of solder around the exposed metal end of the wire. The soldersolidifies on the wire once the soldering iron is removed.
6 Touch the end of the wire tothe solder on the metal tab attached to the speaker.
7 Touch the tip of the solderingiron to where the wire and tab connect. The heat of the soldering iron meltsthe solder on the wire and tab together. This repairs the broken connectionbetween the wire and speaker.
8 Replace the speaker casingonto the headphone. It should snap back into place for models without screws Thanks.

I would like to transfer music from a cassette to my laptop. How do I do this using EZ Vinyl/Tape converter? Thanks


Even simpler than that program is Audacity. You can download it free. The easiest way to accomplish what you want to do is this. Go to WalMart and buy a double male ended headphone cord for about $5 Plug one end into the headphone jack on the tape deck, plug the other end into your microphone jack on your computer. Be sure to turn down the volume to about 10% on the tape deck. This will keep the sound from becoming destorted. Press record on Audacity and start the tape. You can see it record as it plays. Then save that Sound file as the name of the song.

Playing ITunes from my dell Inspiron 1300


I have a cable made of
- a 1/8" stereo plug (male) to stereo RCA (female)
- 6' stereo RCA cable (male/male)

Plug the 1/8" into the headphone jack of the laptop and the RCA end into the AUX on a stereo/amplifier...

That gives you one room anyway.
