It could be a problem with the cartridge/stylus, since you have eliminated the mixer as a source of the problem, it must be in the turntable. The only place for it to come from would be the stylus/cartridge or the wires in the tone arm, or the pre-amp that those wires go to, or some bad solder in the output circuit being used. My guess would be the cartridge and/or stylus, it is taking much more contact and friction than anything else which could cause it to be intermittent. Please understand that I can only guess at your problem since I do not have the unit in front of me to check myself, so I can not be certain of your problem.

I hope this helps,
Dave

I have a Kenwood stereo receiver model k2 3600 , the left speaker keeps going out , the right speaker works fine. I've tried adjusting the speaker wire for the left speaker, and I always end up having...


HI,
BASED ON THE INFO YOU GAVE I HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW..

1, switch the working right speakers cable to left output and problem left to right (from the back of receiver -not from the speakers it self..) to see if problem continues..

2.After switching them ,if it (old left new right one ) still stops left speaker cable may have short ( a tiny cable inner pieces may touching to other side ) at either at the back of receiver output or at the end ,at speaker input .
make sure you control it carefully...if the problem persist please contact to me..

Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

At low volume the sound becomes variable and static ridden sometimes even turning off completely.


My first guess is dirt in the volume control potentiometers (analog-type rotary or slide volume control only).

Im having kenwood home stereo system model no xd-v818 ...in high volume about 80 the sound starts to distoriate and the voice is not clear..i want to kno wether the stereo deck is not able to provide...


Well, here is the situation as I understand it. Here is also some theory to help you out.
Your Receiver or Amplifier has a "scale" showing relative volume. Distortion always increases in speakers and amplifiers when you turn them up. If the sound is getting extremely distorted, the Receiver is attempting to operate above it's maximum output. The scale is an average, but because music recordings are often mastered at different levels, "80" may be too much. When an amplifier section of a receiver is over driven, the distortion (which you observed) will damage or burn out your speakers. Most likely the tweeter (high frequency speaker)
If you back off the volume, or turn down the output of the deck until the sound becomes clear, then that level, IS FULL VOLUME. Based on what you are saying to me, I don't think anything needs service.
There is one other very important thing I should mention to you
. When people use high powered equipment and initially turn up the sound. After a short time, the mind turns it down. What next happens is the reason professional musicians and sound engineers often have permanent hearing loss after a relatively short time.
What happens is that the listener and often the engineer running the sound board at a concert thinks the sound is not loud enough (when the audience is happy with the level) and turns it up. After turning it up, his mind (and the audiences') turns it down and then he thinks it not loud and then again turns it up. And up. And up. The only reason I'm not deaf is that I discovered this when I was building sound systems as a kid. I also studied about it. So please be careful when you play things loud. Permanent hearing loss starts to occur at the very high frequencies and rolls down from there over a period of time. Hearing loss can start to occur in just a few hours.
at 110 decibels. It doesn't come back. If you understand this, you'll keep your hearing.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Trying to hook up 2 Hi Fi speakers to a reciever


Red left to Red left speaker
Black left to Black left speaker

then repeat for right speaker

turn on amp play somthing quite to start, check all is working. To check speakers are in phase play a bit louder and stand exactly in middle, bass should be defined and central, it helps to close eyes and listen. If not central and defined change over Red and Black on one side only then listen again with the same test.

Start flat with eq section adjust as you like when listening to something you know and like.

After all is working ok then make it louder.

Sorted!

I have a stanton-vestax cd-11 dual cd player, and was wondering how to get a cd to play on it. I put one in, turned the player on, pushed all the buttons and nothing happened. how does it work?


I have had one of these for many years: Switch it on, you must make sure the two transit screws at the back of each deck are fully unscrewed and loose, let the machine displays settle down, then insert a CD, then press the 'reset' button. There is a built-in delay of about 11 seconds before the deck begins to read. After this the machine should then display the first track number, and pressing the big red button will start play.

Pressing the 'reset' button again stops playback and the CD spins down, but if you leave the CD in there it will eventually re-index and cue up again. This feature is to enable fast, one-button CD changing and it works very well in practice, as the 11 second delay is enough time to take one CD out and get another in there before it tries to read it again.

To stop playback just press the 'reset' button (this is the most used button!) and take out the CD. After the delay, the machine will try to read a CD as normal, but display 'no CD' on the display. There is no stop button, as this unit was designed for continuous use in a club or disco.

Hope this helps. :)

I have a Stanton T.80 and Vestax VMC-185XL mixer. I recently bought Rane Serato Scratch Live which requires the turntables to be grounded through the mixer...however, the turntable doesnt have a ground...


Hi gium

Sounds like we have reached that point where progressive crossover in technologies means that the usual cautions of earth continuity for the tone arm when using a phono preamp has gone the same way as phono preamps on home theatre.

Have you tried switching to the line level and set the mixer up for that level also. That may reduce any gain induced hum. However it sounds like an earth loop problem, where both decks will need to be earthed in the mixer. Check also that all the gear is running of the same power point. Different mains phases are sometimes available near each other, having any gear (power amps also) on a different phase will cause an earth loop problem.

Is the hum all the time independent of the volume levels, or change with levels adjustments and not at all when turned right down. Let me if changing to line levels helps. We can try some more things, like connecting a temp hookup wire earth to the RCA earth to mixer chassis. Cheers

Hi khanfaisalv

You can use Zone2 feature that is built into this amp, then have dvd playing in one room, and cd playing in another. Both controlled separately

Page 10 of the manual tells you how to hook up the wires to Zone2

Page 30 has details of how to get it up and going.

Good luck with the rewire job, thanks for using FixYa
