Re: something spinning

1. Check all cable connections to make sure they're secure. 2. Replace the cable connecting the CD unit to your receiver. 3. Clean the contacts on the player and receiver with electronics-grade contact cleaner. good luck

Sony stacking system LBTd505, the sound from the record deck suddenly went very faint. The cd and radio sections are fine. I have tried a new stylus, but no difference. Any ideas?

You have two options. First a faulty cartridge. Or a faulty pre-amp in the main amp.
You can find out if the cartridge (and amp) are playing up. By removing the connectors on the cartridge.
Then with the volume turned up to about half, with your finger, touch each one of the wires one at a time. It will not harm you at all. But you should hear a loud buzz on one wire on the right and a loud buzz on the left on another wire.
The two other wires will either produce a crackle, or a tiny buzz, or nothing at all.
If you do hear a loud buzz on two wires. The cartridge is faulty and needs replacing.
If you hear a slight buzz on them or weak sound. There is either a bad connection between the deck and amp. Or the pre-amp inside the deck which is only used by the record deck so will not effect any other function, is faulty.
You can remove the record deck connections to the amp and again with the amp on half full, touch the inputs with your finger. If you are not hearing a loud hum or buzz, the pre-amp is faulty. If you do the connectors are faulty.

Hi: I have a aiwa nsx 800 mkII I hear left channel normal but the right channel sound very low ?qhere can I fix that?

Check first it is on all functions. If it is then it will be a power amp fault. As the unit has two channels both of which are identical to each other it's possible to check and compare each channel. So in your case the left hand channel parts are your guide to what is right. Compare first visually the two channels. If something looks burnt or damaged or wrong in the right, but it isn't in the left then you will have found the cause.
If everything looks OK, then carry out voltage tests, if you have a meter. Or a sound test. This involves touching with an insulated screwdriver the two channels while the unit is on. Never touch any part that there is only one of. Unless it's an IC and has two channels going in it. You will hear a buzz if it is working or produces sound. Again a good buzz in the left should happen in the same place as the right. When it's load at one point of a part but weak on the other, when it should be a loud buzz then you have found the faulty part.
Please however check first that it's not the headphone socket that is causing the problem. Sometimes the sound will be OK on headphones but not on the speakers. The socket the headphones fit into can cause this.

When I play a CD I get a buzzing sound. The sound starts as soon as I hit the play button (and before the CD is actually moving.) It gets louder once the CD starts playing. The sound is coming through...

Buzzing is usally AC line noise leaking into an un-shielded cable somewhere or a floating ground. If the AC plug is reversible, try that. Sometimes the buzz is from an attached device. Make sure all audio cables are plugged in tightly at each end and routed away from or at right angles to any power cords and away from other sources of strong magnetic fields like TV's. I've also seen variable track lights induce noise but it's usually minor.

Loud buzzing when I insert a tape in my car's stereo

Hiya, first try a normal cassette, see if that plays OK. If so the deck is probably fine, if not then the deck is faulty (probably not serious though and just a loose wire on the head).
If the connection between the tape and MP3 is a cable, the fault is quite likely there (if bluetooth then not). I strongly suspect the cable from the previous issues also.

Best of luck

Curtis Micro Radio/CD Player Shelf System RCD882

When you load the CD, the CD itself sits on what is called the CD Table. The height of this table is somewhat critical to proper operation of the CD. Since this is a new unit, this should not occur. Return the unit for exchange or repair. If the unit is less than 30 days old, insist on an exchange. You should not have to be without the unit for something that new.

Sony MHC-RG222 cd player broken

It is not clear from your post that whether this is functioning perfectly other than the sound problem, if it doesn't, change the laser pick up.

Buzzing noise

Of course it will stop buzzing when you mute the speakers. From the limited description, it could be anything from a power supply to loose wires in the system between the speaker leads and the motherboard. Best bet is to take it in to a technician and get a pro's answer. If he wants to charge more than what it's worth to you, get a new one.

CD changer major problem

You probably have a small plastic gear stripped out or a belt slipping and it will need to be replaced. I wouldn't recomend a do it your self repair. This is most likely a job for a professional.
