Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My RODE NT2s sound output is intermittent, it is OK then it cuts out. Gently shaking the mic reveals about 3mm of movement of the top assembly/condenser, i suspect that a peice of solder has come loose making an intermittent connection problem.

Is there an access cover with screws in it underneath?
MOst of the receivers have something like that.
I would also check the output PCB assby for shorts or opens.

SOURCE: Denon AVR 1601 with no sound output

The usual problem with this model is the main power supply transformer is open. There is a thermal fuse inside the transformer that is open thats why if wont supply voltage to the power output amplifier. It would turn on because the standby circuit is still functioning.

Just bought a Yamaha RX-V371 surround sound receiver and the TV audio signal is cutting out. I am running a Samsung LED TV with a single HDMI cable (sound/picture). I tested a smaller tv with a short HDM...

Settings are not the source of intermittent problems.

"Signal loss" is indicated WHERE? So what's going on upstream at the source? ITS cables are a part of this.

My $.02... I never route any signal unnecessarily to or through a device that doesn't enhance or consume it. Hence, my BEST video from each of my several video sources goes directly to my TV/monitor and my BEST digital audio from all sources goes directly to my AVR.

No problems.

Can I connect 4 ohms speakers on the AVR 230? Thanks

Output impedence of 95% of Herman Kardon sets are desighed for 6 Ohms speaker. There is an output speaker sensor circutary it it which sense the impedence of the connected speaker. it is a built in feedback circuit and is ment for protection for both speakers and power amplifier section of the amp. If you connect a 4 Ohms speaker, the set will sense it and there is a chance to get it tripped as you increase the volume. Just connect and check. Advance the volume of the set very gently. If tripping occurs or it just cut off as soon as switch ON, never connect it again. OK.

Hi! How are you? I have a problem with my microphone RODE NT1A. I bought it, and I need to plug in it to my computer. What things I need? What should I do? Have a nice day! Thanks.

The Rode NT1A is a phantom powered mic, This means that a power supply is needed to provide 24 or 48 volt for the mic to work. None of the computer mic in provides this kind of power supply. The best solution is to use a suitable external audio card or another microphone.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer, clarifying also what you are about to do and what kind of available connections does the computer has (firewire, usb etc)
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

My brand new Yamaha RXV 467 in all modes the sound cuts out periodically for a short time. It is random and very annoying. I checked all speaker connections and the sound cuts out even in...

It sounds like you have a intermittent problem in the driver output stage, it should be exchanged for a new one, because this is a problem that can not be fixed easily.

Intermittent no audio to center channel

common problem in those units, bad or cracked solder joints on amp board and or dirty output protection relay, and as always look for repair shop in your area, do not attempt to do it yourself, firehazard and electric shock are the things we all want to avoid ;)

Is the audio technica at2020 a sealed unit

No it's not a sealed mic... there are three Philips head screws under the label ring just below the pop screen. You can either peel up the ring and loose the Audio Technica logo and markings or, as I did, simply use a razor blade to cut out around the screw holes.

After opening your mic you can GENTLY peel the foam from the condenser film to boost performance and response but only if you have a very good pop filter.

I have a Pioneer SA_410 Amplifier. Has open circuit mains transformer. Could you advise what its AC secondary output voltage & current are? Regards

I have replaced many thermal fuses in power transformers. Is the primary open?? If so, cut the copper shield on the primary side of the transformer with a pair of cutters and peel back the paper insulation to reveal the thermal fuse. Replace it and everythings OK!! If the secondary is bad there's no hope, of course. Anyway, in the meantime I will research your question and post again very soon. I have several old pioneer schematics and know where to find what I need.

Trouble with Tuner 2

From experience, I suspect that the dish has lost it's optimum "focus" on the satellites, and your signal has dropped. In your case, tuner #2 just happens to need a little more signal than tuner #1 - and that's revealing the root problem.

If you can have a second person handy, use the signal meter function and view the signal. Then one person should move the dish a bit (likely upward a hair). If the signal goes up with just the slight movement of the still tight dish, that's the problem.

If so, it's time to align the dish.

Kenwood receiver, and the mic input problem

Does the gtr still work on the unit? The mic jack may be bad / dirty and not routing regular audio. Try plugging the gtr cord in and out a few times. Or inspect the jack itself for tarnish, bad solder joints. Fine sand paper can be used to clean the contacts on the jack, if it's not a sealed jack.

Hope that helps...
