Parasound TDQ-150 Tuner remote control codes

Does anyone have the remote control codes for a Parasound TDQ-150 AM/FM tuner? I bought one used without a remote control and I want to see if I can get an universal one to work.
Thanks,
Ken

Try the other inputs and see if you have the same problem with them. That will let you know if the problem is the tuner or if it is something else.

Since your receiver does not shut off after a few seconds it should not have an amplifier problem. If it did shut off quickly it is know as the protect mode and normally indicates that you have a blown channel, not always, but normally it is that.

If you get no audio from any function, you may have a digital board problem which is a very difficult problem to isolate and repair.

A couple of things you can do to make sure it is not something like a wrong setting is to make sure that the "Tape Monitor" switch has not been pressed accidentally. If the "Tape Monitor" is engaged it wil appear that everything is normal with the display and functions, but you get no audio from anything unless you are recording on a tape. This can happen even with no tape deck connected to the unit. Study the display closely and see if "monitor" or "tape monitor" is lit up anywhere in the display, or if you have an led on the tape monitor or monitor switch, that led could also be lit up red. If you turn the volume up all the way, do you get a very faint amount of audio? If so, you probably do have the tape monitor engaged.

Also check that the speakers are activated. If you have only one set of front speakers you want to make sure that only those speakers are activated. You will have a button for speakers "A" and "B". Make sure that only speakers "A" are turned on. Some receivers will not have any output if you have both "A" and "B" turned on but only have speakers connected to the "A" speakers.
If your receiver has a button for the headphones make sure that is not engaged as well. Many receivers will not have output to the speakers if the headphones are turned on. Or if you have headphones connected, try unplugging them.

Those the only user type of things that you can do unless you have some good electronics troubleshooting skills and the proper tools. So if you have checked those things and still have no audio you need to take it in for service.

Here is a link that you can get your owners manual from online for free. It is always a good idea to study the owners manual to make sure you have everything connected properly and have the settings correct as well. Just go to this link and put in your model number exactly as it is on the front of the receiver to make sure you get the right manual. If you put in the wrong model number you will get no results when you search for it.

I hopes this helps, and if so a "FixYa" rating would be appreciated.

Here are the links for the manual. I've lost my remote as well. I can't get my unit to recognize the digital audio input (optical). Very frusturating.

SOURCE: FM Tuner in Sherwood RX-4105

Check your antenna connections. Make sure your FM antenna is hooked up to the FM antenna terminal or jack on your Sherwood receiver. If you have the antenna hooked through the coaxial cable, check your coaxial cable with an ohmmeter for continuity. You can buy a volt-ohm meter as little as $12. Usually bad connection occur between coaxial cable and the the coax cable connectors. If that doesn't solve the problem, then there may be something wrong with your tuner card inside of your Sherwood receiver.

If you receivers display does not change channels or frequencies or AM or FM mode, when you try to change the channel or frequencies, or AM or FM mode, there may be something wrong with the front board of your receiver.

If there is something internally wrong your Sherwood receiver, you need to take it to a qualified technician that can fix it. Do not try to repair it yourself. If you don't know what you're doing, you can do far more damage to that Sherwood receiver to the point that would be very costly to repair.

Before you take your Sherwood receiver to a technician, try to unplug the receiver, and leave it unplugged for several minutes, and then plug it back in. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you need to take your Sherwood to a qualified technician.

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do...


The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

Problem with philips 713x tv tuner


This is a hardware driver problem.
The final version of Windows 7 has not been released yet, you most likely have the RC copy of Windows 7 (ie Release Candidate - final beta version just before official release) the RC is available to anyone to download and test.
The problem is that not all device drivers are avaiable and if you cannot get a Windows 7 version audio driver from the manufacturer's WEB site at this stage, you have to wait until it is available.

FM Radio


Hi
iPods do not come with FM tuners. FM tuners can be bought and added on as an extra feature, but this is a third party device, not an iPod device.

Generally, when you connect the third party FM tuner to the iPod, the iPod will recognize it and you can use the 3rd party FM tuner to change stations.

If you do not have the FM tuner to connect to the iPod, the individual that sold you the iPod did not include the FM tuner to connect to the the iPod. In that case, the Menu will still list the FM tuner, but there is no device to connect to the iPod.
