Question about Yamaha DVR-S120 DVD Player

Where do you get the speaker connectors and wires

This unit was a hand-me-down, which was great. Unforturnately, the speaker wires were not included. I have searched far and wide, and have failed to find this part.

As an alternative cheap solution, if you have the following available you can do as I've done.
I used an old burnt out ATX power supply 24pin motherboard connector, cut all the wires of about 10 inches and then cross sliced the connector up into 2pin connector pieces. Worked perfect, saved me $ and made some great recycling use of an otherwise useless PSU.

You can buy original from here but they are very expensive also they are available from the states (via ebay) cheaper but the shipping is really expensive (more than the cables) there is also an ebay seller selling non original universal connectors for about £15 inc shipping they look like they will fit ok ........ search ebay using this ;

What and where is the ic on my sagx390 stereo receviver

Since no one has answered (and I'm sure you have it repaired now), I'll let everyone know that there are many ICs (integrated circuits or 'chips') in your receiver. By far the most common ones to fail are the power output ICs and these are the two black or grey hexagon shaped blocks screwed to the big finned metal radiator (aka heatsink) inside. They will usually have 'POWER MODULE' stamped on them or a code starting with SVI or STK. Your receiver has many speaker outputs so it has two modules (e.g. one module may drive front speakers, other module for surround and centre speakers. They usually fail if you have connected the wrong speaker impedance (see the ohms figure next to speaker connectors- looks like upside down letter U. Must be matched to speakers ohms rating) or touched the speaker wires together while running (very bad). Symptoms of a failed IC/module include shutting down as soon as you press power, indicating an overload on the display, or blowing fuses (NEVER put a larger fuse or piece of wire in place of fuse or you will cause much more damage). The modules can usually be found on the net but you will need someone with soldering experience to replace them.

VSXD712 standby light flashes and unit will not turn on

Its a fail safe feature to lock the unit if its damaged, It will not power on until the error is corrected, This can be eighter in the power supply or the main board. It can be as simple as a capicator or cracked solder to as complexed as an IC. Unfortunately to tell you the exact error is difficult from where i sit, You will need a multimeter and contunity checking until you find the error. This problem requires hands on assistance an isnt possible from a remote fix.

Why am I getting a alternate he whining when RCA plug is plugged in speaker RCA jack is plugged in

Good wiring practices and noise reduction accessories can help cut back on alternator whine and ignition popping sounds thru auto audio systems.

Typically, amplifiers and other high current devices work best when power leads are direct connected to the vehicle battery. The remote on signal should come from the head unit or other location of choice. Use only shielded signal cables between head unit and amp. Try to keep as much space as possible between the audio wires and power wires - including speaker wiring.

By connecting to the battery directly, it acts like a giant capacitor. It is also where the cleanest, level DC power in the vehicle is - the further away from it you go, the dirtier is gets. Even only a slight AC ripple on the DC level voltage can wreak havoc on the sound coming from the speakers. You can add a "choke input filter" to further reduce the AC ripple. There's a ton of data on these filters, so I'll leave you to determine how far you want to dig - here is the Google result page:

Good luck!

I have a wide body 1995 petrol awd toyota estima import that i want to change the stero/radio on but wires don't seem to add up. anyone help us with the diagram?

You can use a small aa battery to identify the speaker wires and to which speaker they go. By putting 1 wire on the positive and 1 wire on the negitive of the battery the speaker will make a small scratching sound. You will still have to figure out the speaker wires first. Use this method and go thru a process of elimination. There could also be a factory amplifier under the passenger seat which could cause you trouble. Failing that, running new speaker wiring from the head unit will sort all problems.
I hope that helps.

I cant get "PROTECT" off my Sony MHC-EC909iP Mini Hi-Fi System.

Disconnect the speaker wires from the unit. If it still says protect when you turn it on, then the amp ic has been shorted and needs to be replaced.

Protect mode jvc

The protect mode is activated when it senses a short in the audio outputs in the stereo. Turn volume down, power off, and remove speaker wires from the back, next power on, if the protect comes on the audio output ic is shorted, if on the other hand it runs, check speaker wires for shorts and then hook up one at a time to find the fault including the speaker.

Hi, my arcam alpha 7r turns on fine (orange light turns green) when you try and up the volume it clicks out and green goes back to orange, and the rear right hand side gets far too warm. thanks for any...

You may have problems with one of your speakers,or with the wires that go to the speakers.
Try turning it on with no load, remove ALL the speaker wires and up the volume and see what it does.....If the amp does the same with the spakers removed ,it means that the amp is faulty,
if nothing goes wrong connect the speaker one by one until it fails and you will find out which speaker is faulty, Also check the impedance on the spakers to be the same asthe impedance recomended for that amp (If u connected two or more speakers per chanel have in mind that if u put them in parallel the impedance goes down two 8 ohms speakers equal one of 4 ohms)... ,you may be overloading the amp

No output from speaker

Test the speaker to see if it works.

Remove grille cover, take out the screws holding the speaker, disconnect the wires from the speaker ( note the + and -)

Apply a signal to the speaker, It will work or not.

If speaker is working, then
Could be that the amp section has failed.

The replament amp is not expensive.

My Kenmore does not spin to complete the wash cycle.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!
