Clock adjustment option not there

I just recently had my system installed. The clock cannot be seen on the keypads. There is no option to set the clock. Was it programed wrong doing initial setup ? Everything else works.

With the keypads go to menu, then setup, then zone settings, then display settings then time display. Will have to go to each zone to do this. The installer could have asked for your preference. Some people prefer it, some don't.

Mzc64 was working fine, one night came home to every zone panel red. now the main panel says zone set up.... what happened and how do I fix it?


I know this is old but the answer may help someone else.

The keypad sounds like the mode 3.1 type commonly used onthe mzc units.

They say 'setup' when the communication between the mzc controller and keypad is lost, ie just the 12volt power is applied or the keypad is set to the wrong channel (channel is set on the back with a small rotary pot).

If its been working andnow isnt working thenthe channel wont be the issue as that wont have changed. Its most likely to be a fault with the cat5 cable between the keypad and the controller in particular the brown pair of wires asuming its wired as per spec, these are the 485 bus wires which carry the communication. The blue wires are infa red the green is earth and the orange is +12v supply.

Try unplugging the failed keypad at the back of mzc on the appropriate zone and swapping it with one of the other keypad connectors on another zone (check on the back of the keypad on the other zone that it is set to the same channel address as the one you ate swapping it with).

If the problem stays on the same keypad then you know the issue is with either the keypad or cable, if the problem moves to the other keypad then the issue is with the main mzc control unit.

If the issue is the controller then it will be a hardware failure which will need repairing by an engineer, i continue to repair these units on a weekly basis and this faulty is rare but could be one of 3 things 1) ribbon cable failue between control board and backplane 2) faulty backplane panel or 3) faulty control ic on control panel.

However its probably cable issue Between keypad and controller.

trust that helps.

Thanks for the answer - If we have 3 controls as Bass, Mid and Treble. If we keep those in 12 O Clock position, will the output level be equal. In using the Bass and Treble control only (if we have...


If all are in 12 o'clock position they are "flat" (nothing has been added or subtracted foam input signal) If you only have bass & treble, yes adjusting will affect "mids" but Mids change can go both ways dependent on increase or decrease of Bass and /or treble. By increasing bass you will pull some mids up also. By increasing treble you'll subtract some mids.

One of my zones is not working and the control panel says "set zone" . There are no options available on the menu


hi,
you need the speaker-craft mcz programming tool to program the amplifier. you can program the system only through a computer. you have to program the mode 3.1. you also need a cable to connect the mode 3.1 to the computer ( Speaker craft DTP-6 Transfer Cable). through the computer u can set all the parameters of mode 3.1. you can download the software from speaker craft. install it it your computer. connect one end the DTP-6 transfer cable to the control port and the other end to your ps's serial port . run the soft ware and make wanted settings in all zones.
ok

I'm thoroughly confused on how to hook up a tuner/receiver to put music out through the MZC-66 amp. All of the keypads and connections to them have been installed, but I have inputs for sources on the...


Shame on your Speakercraft dealer for not having installed this system for you or at least telling you how to hook things up! (You did get this from an authorized Speakercraft dealer, didn't you?) As you know, the MZC-66 comes with a 40 page user guide that will show you how to connect the system in your choice of several different ways. You gave very little information as to what keypads you have, what sources you want to connect, or why there is even a standard stereo receiver involved in this picture at all. The MZC is a custom installation product, designed by and for custom installation specialists and it has sooooo many ways to be installed that it can be used in just about any way you might want.
The simplest answer for you right now is that each of the inputs is paired with a "loop-output" which allows you to connect your source first to the MZC, and then (with another patch cord) to another preamp (or in this case, your receiver). You said that you only needed six zones, but the receiver adds in to make seven. Why do you want the receiver in the picture, again? Just for the tuner? Or do you want to use the amplifier in the receiver to power one of your rooms? (Remember, the MZC has pre-outs for every zone!) Depending on what make and model receiver you have, you can do any one of several different methods of making the two units work and play well with others. Again, I go back to the whole authorized dealer thing. With something like this, maybe it's best that you call in a custom installation pro who does this for a living to do this the right way. Too many potential ways to fail in an effort to save a buck. SpeakerCraft dealers are the pros who know how to make these things jump through hoops. They are the ones who put SpeakerCraft at the front of the line in distributed music systems. This is an advanced enough product that there is no way to tell someone the "one" way to make it work. Besides, unless you have just the most basic of keypads, how do you even plan to program the keypads to operate your source equipment? What is it that you want these pieces to do? What keypads do you have? Do you want the keypads to operate the source components? Will you use any of the video distribution functions? Will you use the doorbell or muting functions? How much experience do you have with finessing this kind of thing? Sometimes, it really is best for the DIYer to call in the pros... I just had to call a plumber, myself. It killed me to make the call, but I was wasting too much time and getting nothing done! You should start by calling the SpeakerCraft dealer where you bought the MZC-66. Good Luck!

I have misplaced the manual for my receiver. I need to know how to balance my speakers. I can only do it at the receiver itself.


You haven't told me what make nor model of receiver you have. That would help A LOT. Anyway, most systems have a power amplifier and a pre-amplifier. Receivers have both, but they are in the same box and to the average user are in-distinguishable. The amplifier it's self (for all practical purposes) has no "balance" control. Any gain adjustments including balance, are done at the pre-amplifier level, and in the case of a receiver, that's probably the only place you will have to do any balancing. Beyond that, you may have an L-PAD or some kind of volume adjustment at the back of your speaker cabinets. If that is the case, you could do some additional balancing there, but if you're looking for symetry in your sound, there should be no need for balance adjustment. If you find that one of the channels is noticably quieter than the other, and yet your balance adjustment is set to the middle, then we need to investigate to find out why, but I don't think that is the problem that you are describing. If you already know how to set the balance at the receiver, then you probably know just about all there is to know about setting the balance on that system. Again, I am not familiar with the system, as you have not given me the make nor model.
