Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

No Stereo from Scoop

I have been trying to figure out how to play MP3s on something other than the small, tinny sounding speaker on the back of the phone.
I got an adapter for the 2.5 jack to plug it into the line in on my car stereo and only got sound from the right speaker. I don't want to waste the money on a bluetooth stereo device if it isn't supported, but can't figure out if it is or not. Alltel says yes, some forums say no.

    That's kind of what I thought, though definately more info than I had. Thank you.

    When I called Alltel, the service rep said it was stereo bluetooth compatible. I asked specificly because I have read forums that state it is not. I am getting more and more skeptical of the service rep's competance.

    Does anyone know where I could find such an adapter?

It is NOT stereo bluetooth compatible (A2DP)

You would need an adapter made specifically do come from an LG headphone port to plug into a radio.

The reason being because the Scoop's port has more contact points than a standard stereo port because it also uses the microphone on the same wire. The adapter you have is not compatible if you are only hearing one audio channel (left - right).

Hope this helps,

Use Your Car's Speakers

Why listen to directions (and MP3s and phone calls) on the speaker tinny little in your<b> GPS</b>? Many high-end <b>GPS</b> receivers are equipped with an FM transmitter to send audio to speakers car stereo. This may work in rural areas where the FM band is not as crowded, but to find a free frequency, will be a challenge in cities.<br /> <br /> One possibility is to use the headphone / audio jack, you can also find an average level of <b>GPS </b>units. Connect the cable car stereo aux patch, and the bliss of static-free sound.<br />

I need the wiring diagram of the stereo cassette radio am/fm, please help my radio is dead (positive and speakers terminals)

You're going to need a multimeter/voltmeter and a 9v battery to do this. It's easiest to first find your constant and switched/ignition wires.

For the constant, you can get ground from any piece of metal inside the dash, and begin touching all the wires, one at a time until you get a voltage. The meter should show 12v or just under. This is your constant. Do the same for the ignition/switched, but this time with the ignition on. Check the remaining wires until you get one at 12v or just under. To check now turn off ignition and the voltage should go away.

For the speakers, it's a little more guessing, but you can check them with a 9v battery. Start with any of the remaining wires and hold it on the positive terminal of your 9v battery. Now go through the remaining wires and touch them, one at a time, to the negative terminal. You should hear a pop from the speaker when you come across the pair. Note the colors and the speaker where it came from. Now move on to another wire and repeat.

You may come across a wire that will not pop when paired with any of the other wires. This could be your ground. Put it a side until you've figured out all the speaker wires. Now go back to the possible ground and use your multimeter to see if you get 12v with your constant wire on positive and the negative wire on the possible ground. If it does it's your ground. If not, it could be something like a dimmer, power antenna or remote line that isn't necessary in replacing a stereo.

The downfall of doing this is that it doesn't tell you polarity. After you finishing connecting the radio to the in-dash wiring turn it on. Listen to the sound carefully. If it sounds tinny one or more of the speakers polarity are incorrect. Try to determine which speaker/s sound tinny and reverse there wiring. Check again and hopefully everything's sounding good.

I hope this is helpful.

Ok, I bought some Gigaware speakers (8watt GigaWare 2.0 2/bass subwoofer) and they work just fine, playing internet content and MP3s- until I try to play a DVD. Then, one channel of the audio disappears-...

A couple of things I would check first..

Obviously the settings on the movie audio settings themselves.. the default may be dts or some such thing.

Next.. open the control panel. clik on Sound.. make sure you check all the settings.. clik on the speaker icon and clik configure..

Also check the settings via your sound card software interface.. it sounds like something is set to something other than simple Stereo.. like 5.1 or 7.1 etc.

I doubt it's the dvd player itself.. or the dvd.. more than likely it is a simple conflict in one of the above settings

Good luck

Tinny sound from L-310 SW's

This might be helpful. Most stereo receivers have 2 sets of speaker outputs, A and B. Each have outputs for left and right speakers. On the front panel of the receiver, there should be a switch to turn on/off speaker A/B. When using both A and B, (a set of speakers on each A and B) you will lose a bit of volume.

Another possibility is, if the speaker cable length to your covered porch is a long distance from the receiver, you will lose some power from the receiver. Try using a thicker gauge speaker cable for longer cable runs. Try 14 gauge or 16 gauge.

Record player sounds scratchy and tinny

Playing records is a contact sport.

Since the needle touches the record -- as opposed to a laser reading a CD -- any bit of dust or mold translates to annoying pops and hisses.

Record cleaners get down into the record grooves to extract dust and particles.

Or you may need a new needle.
