Question about GPX C979 Cassette/CD Boombox

Will not come off standby mode

We were given a used gpx979. Unit will not operate using AC or batteries. Neither the CD, radio or tape system works at all. It does absolutely nothing. The only light that comes on is the standby light. We do not have the remote control for the unit. Any recommendations?

Auto power off


Link to user manual

No you can't turn off this feature

Nathan Petersen June 17th, 2005, 04:03 PM Is there away to turn the auto power off off. I dont think there is, just thought I'd ask, thanks. Don Palomaki June 17th, 2005, 08:47 PM Not on the original XL1. It will drop into STANDBY from PAUSE if there is a tape in the transport after around 5 minutes. If there is NOT a tape in the camcorder it will not not drop into STANDBY but will remain operating as a camera. Xander Christ June 17th, 2005, 09:25 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true. Don Palomaki June 18th, 2005, 07:33 AM True - in that when using the battery, the camcorder will shut down when the battery runs out of available charge. However, using the A/C adapter does not prevent the XL1 from going into standby if a tape is in the camcorder. Nathan Petersen June 18th, 2005, 04:52 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true.

No it still does it with the AC adapter, Im not even using the battery. It makes no sense to have the auto power off when shooting indoors while using the AC adapter, its just stupid. Don Palomaki June 19th, 2005, 05:59 AM Again, the key point is having a tape in the XL1. After about 5 minuts it goes into Standby mode (not the same as turning the power off with the dial). This is a carryover from pure consumer camcorders - to save battery and reduce damage to tape and head wear from a camcorder left in pause mode for a long time.

Pro users complained, so the XL1s had an option to disable this feature so that only the tape transport (VCR portion) is turned off after 5 minutes, the camera head continues to run. link to above thread

MANUAL FOR XM SKYBOX


Unit is very straightforward to operate. Hold down O/1 button for power. Use the "mode" pusbutton to cycle thru AM/FM/CD/AUX/XM. Treble & Bass settings are made by turning the 'tuning' knob.
For radio and satellite presets, hold in the numbered pushbutton until it beeps, and then it's set. You should be able to hear previews on XM channel 1,and that will help you with antenna setup. I highly suggest using the remote XM antenna. The built-in XM antenna need to be put 'propped-up' outslde, otherwise you have to use the external antenna. Use AC power as it eats batteries, or use rechargeable D batteries. Let me know if you have any more quesions. okay?

CD not working propely


"No disk" is about as fatal a CD read error as ther is. Before we assume the player is at fault let's look at our media. A CD should be handled and cared for like any opitical device. Dirt, fingerprints and scratches are tolerated somewhat but the CD standard isn't impervious to problems.

Do you get any constant results with any CD, say one that always works vs one that never works? Compare them visually for problems on the one that doesn't. I use a clean soft cloth with glass cleaner to clean my media.

This is the entire troubleshooting section for the unit.

Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.

Troubleshooting
If your unit fails to perform properly, check the following guide
and the relevant sections of the Operating Instructions.
There is no sound.
•Are the speakers and AC power cord connected properly?
The unit shut off suddenly.
•Possibly a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power outlet
and re-connect the speaker cords correctly.
The unit blacks out when the unit is turned off.
•Is ECO mode set to on?
Erroneous display.
•Reset the unit.
Poor radio reception.
•Check antenna connection. Adjust the antenna to find the
best reception.
•Move unit and antenna away from other electric appliances
and cords.
The tape does not run.
•Is the deck in pause?
Poor tape sound.
•Check for dirty heads. Clean them if needed.
•Use type I (normal) tapes.
Cannot record.
•Is the erasure prevention tab of the tape broken off? If so,
cover the detection slot with adhesive tape.
The CD player works poorly.
•Is the disc correctly loaded?
•Is the disc dirty?
•Is the lens affected by condensation? If so, wait
approximately one hour and try again.
Resetting the unit
If an unusual condition occurs in the display window or the
cassette deck, reset the unit as follows:
1 Press POWER to turn off the power.
If the power cannot be turned off, disconnect the AC power
cord, then plug it in again.
2 Hold down s and press POWER.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared.
Condensation
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
•The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
•The heating system has just been turned on
•The unit is used in a very humid room
•The unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function
normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours,
then try to operate again.

Vol problem


Here is the entire troubleshooting section from the manual.

Your problem is presumed to be a shorted speaker wire. I assume you're not getting the failure ONLY at extremely high volume levels.

Care and maintenance
Occasional care and maintenance of the unit and the software
are needed to optimize the performance of your unit.
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft and dry cloth. If the unit surfaces are extremely
dirty, use a soft cloth lightly moistened with mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine
or thinner.
To clean the tape heads
Dirty tape heads cause sound deterioration. After every 10
hours of use, clean the tape heads with a head cleaning
cassette. Refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette.
To demagnetize the tape heads
Use a demagnetizing cassette after every 20 to 30 hours of
use. Refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing cassette.
Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.
Care of tapes
Store tapes in their cases after use. Do not leave tapes near
magnets, motors, television sets, or any source of
magnetism. Do not expose tapes to direct sunlight, or leave
them in a car parked in direct sunlight.

Earlier; Fisher stacker type unit. stuck in Standby. mode


Hi jamz.
I see this is a pretty ancient posting so you've probably fixed it or given up by now.
I also own a CA-350 Amp which I purchased many years ago here in Auckland NZ.
I've recently had it in bits to fix so if you're still looking for a solution I may be able to offer you some help.
If so, you can contact me at martymarvel@hotmail.com
