Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have a Denon DP-51F Turntable that recently developed a speed control issue when playing. I noticed the "lock" indicator also flickers when the speed becomes erratic. It's direct drive, and I should also mention was moved with our houshold via moving van. I loaded and unloaded it myself.

    My Denon DP-51F started revving up suddenly a few years ago, indicating that the magnetic servo feedback system supposed to give exactly 1,000 pulses per revolution (situated on the inside of the outer rim of the platter with a tone head mounted to record the signal) failed to provide the 555.6 Hz that is used to stabilize the speed at 33 1/3 rpm. Tried to adjust the tone head closer to and further away from the magnetic strip, but in vain. Have found no cure and the beautiful piece of equipment is just gathering dust. Too bad for such a good turntable.

Hi. I also have a DP-51F and am experiencing severe problems with tracking. My sense is that the tone arm may be damaged. Would you be willing to sell parts from your turntable if you're not going to repair it? Let me know as I would be interested.

Connect a turntable to play old records


You probably need to plug the turntable output cables into a preamplifier to get the proper equalization and signal strength.

DENON AVR-1912 PS3 ISSUE


You might just have a handshaking issue between your PS3 and your receiver. See if there are any firmware upgrades for your PS3, Receiver or both. This usually takes care of the problem. If not - your receiver has a 2 or 3 year MFG Warranty. Have it checked out or exchanged.

I have a denon DP-7F direct table (1989)ust wondering about the point of the arm the head of the cartridge housing is very close to the record any way to get that adjusted higher?


If the tonearm balance and tracking force for your cartridge are adjusted correctly, ignore it.

Register and download the manual for free at vinylengine.com

http://www.vinylengine.com/library/denon/dp-7f.shtml

Eeeww, page 8 says the counterweight snaps on and the tracking force is factory set. Any self-repecting turntable should have precise manual balance and tracking adjustments. Or your counterweight is not on? Either way, I'd look seriously at getting the stylus checked for excessive wear if it's tracking too heavily. The manual says 500 hours of normal use. You'll be carving up your recordings.

Maybe post the question to the guys at Vinylengine

Output from Denon D-700?


Hi ...

If there's a tape monitor in/out on the D700,turn the tape monitor on and connect the "Play out" phono jacks on the 700 to the line-in on the computer. Spark up the turntable and you should be able to listen to the vinyl on the PC while recording.

Avr-2802 constantly restarting itself and flickering on and off


check all speaker wires from the receiver end and the speaker ends. Just the smallest strand of copper could be touching something it should not be touching. Make sure all copper is in the speaker post and not hanging out. The receiver is getting a short and shutting off to protect it self. This could have happened since you were just plugging things in.
