You might have a bad cable to the recorder (try swapping the right and left connections and see if the problem moves to the other channel), dirty tape heads (use a cotton swab and head cleaner or isopropyl alcohol to clean them), or a circuit problem inside the recorder. Hope this gets you started!

I am getting a weak signal on the left channel of my T.80 on both digital and analog outputs


Most likely a faulty cartridge. To check disconnect the leads to the cartridge. With the amp switched on touch each of the wires one at a time with your finger. On two you will have little or no response but on one you should hear a buzz on the left and on the other a buzz on the right. If the buzz are equal in volume then the cartridge is faulty. If the buzz is weak on the left, then that suggest a faulty pre-amp stage in the amp. This pre-amp only affects the record deck, so you won't get it on other functions.

Akai x 360d tape deck shows recording in both channels in stereo mode on playback one channel has a weak sound


1) Clean the heads real well using denature alcohol. If this does not fix it then try spraying the record play switches with Deoxit contact cleaner. After that it could be the well known Akai garbage transistors that a Technician will need to change.

Sony str-de185 left channel very scratchy and poor; not speaker, wire, or connections


Could be an open resistor in the amp for that channel. Might have to have a pro look at it.

Hooking up my mpc2000xl to dp01


The DP-01 does not have a MIDI-In function. Instead, it allows you to plug the MIDI device into the signal chain. Plug the MIDI device into the DP-01 by using the MPC2000xl analog 1/4" jacks on the back, marked "Stereo Right" and "Stereo Left" (right next to the headphone jack at the rear top left). Run those 1/4" cables to the front of your DP-01, into the 1/4" jacks provided.

Hold the Assign button on the DP-01 for the LEFT channel and touch the REC key for the channel you want to assign it to - the REC light will flash red to let you know the routing was successful. Do the same for the RIGHT channel.

You should also plug the MIDI-Out cable from the DP-01 into the mpc2000xl so that the clocks of the devices can be synchronized.

Home stereos


Hi this is Compaqowner again NOTE: I know enough about home Stereos,and I am pretty sure to figure out 'power output' you take the total:in this case it takes in 110 watts total devide that by 2 so according to my math that is 55 watts (I guess this AKAI has a 55 watt amplifier) then you take the amplifier output (in his case 55 watts) and devide that by how many channels are being used,so in 5.1 DOLBY mode DVD movie,etc.(power to all 5 speakers) then it's 11 watts per channel,and in 2.1 stereo (power to the subwoofer,front right,and front left speakers only) it jumps up to a little over 18 watts per channel,again,I think?,when you find the answer,please let me know. Thank you for your time. Steve B.
