T60: use ''mic'' minijack as ''line'' minijack

Hi ... was used to use an old T23 to copy vynil LP discs to CD, hooking it to the HiFi system (tape out into ''line'' minijack).

Got a T60 now which does not provide a ''line'' minijack ... have been told that somehow it should be possible to configure thye ''mic'' input to have it work as a ''line'' input, is it possible?

The ''mic'' input as-is is useless for my purpose because it is far too sensible to hook it up to the HiFi system.

Thanks!

From the "ThinkPad Online User's Guide" that came with my 600E: "Note: To use the input jack for an external stereo line-in device, you need to disable the microphone function with the software on your operating system. For example in Windows 98, you can disable the function by putting a check mark in the check box of Mute for MIC in the "Master Out" window. To use the jack for a manual microphone, disable the line-in function with the software."

I have a remote which doesn't work anymore. (20 year old sony LBT-V502 hifi installation and it's standard RM-S530 remote.) What can I do? is it possible to buy a new one?


That is really old. Once you have tried fresh batteries there is not much more to do.

Amazingly there is one for auction on eBay. Good luck. Personally though, I would not buy it used at that price, I'd get a nice new hifi, maybe DAB radio,

How many LP's can I burn onto one CD in this unit? There is no indication when the CD is full or what is happening during taping. Sometimes units taping is visible. Then there is a funny symbol,


I can't begin to answer your question directly because I am not familiar with your audio unit but I have burned a few CDs on the computer...

Think of a vinyl LP with around 16 to 18 tracks. A CD of that album in high quality stereo audio will have no more or less and it will be, for practical purposes, full.
Thats it, roughly one CD per LP. Pure audio files are big and take up lots of room. Using a computer you could squeeze more in but it would mean breaking the LPs into tracks and playing disc jockey so by mixing and matching running times all the available space would be filled.

Most people who archive their tape and record collections do so on the computer using something like Goldwave to record the audio tracks and then convert them to Mp3 files using a suitable bitrate.. With the standard bitrate there is very little loss of quality and the amount of content that can fit on a CD is immense. I received an Mp3 CD from the Radio Lady and it contained 97 programmes from old radio - some were shorts and some were an hour but the majority were half-hour so it would be fair to say that Mp3 disc contained 50 times the content of an audio CD. Because they were low quality mono a lower bitrate could be used - on the other hand the highest bitrate produces a better than CD reproduction though the resulting files are as big as pure audio files.

The downside is not every CD player will accept Mp3 discs. The one in my van does and I rarely need to select another disc. If I want to play Mp3 content at home I do so with the computer, sometimes with an FM transmitter so we can listen on the big speakers of the hi-fi or a portable radio.
On the plus side the Mp3 files can be converted back to WAV and a CD burned at any time.

I hope you find this informative.

I would have thought that it should go from the amp to the tuner,then the tape deck and finally the CD deck.

I'm suspecting that your tuner is faulty and thats whats causing the system to shut down

Does anyoe know how to record from LP to cd?


Use your tape out, or another line out signal from your preamp.... if possible - OR Sometimes you can pull out some connectors on the back of your amp (a Metal joint kindathing ;), to break signalpath between preamp and poweramp if its an integrated amp -
Use preamp out signal to feed your cdr ( Main purpose is to equalize out, the RIAA correction on a record)
Have you tried to google your question ? Lots of fine guides out there!!!

It is error message of HiFi when it finds problem in Tape Mechanism. Tape mechanism is stucked and needs to be reset. Open your HiFi and rotate the capstan wheel with finger and then try to power up.

You may need to purchase a cheap external mixer with both mic and line inputs, and use that to mix the mic with the DVD audio. In most receivers, you can only select one input at a time. The output of the mixer can then be plugged into any spare receiver input, such as AUX, CD, DVD, etc. When not using Karaoke, you can simply turn the mic input down to prevent it from interfering with the DVD signal, but will still need to have the mixer on to hear DVD's.

About my ibm thinkpad t23


It may be possible with the right adapter. Any repair shop or hobbyist is likely to have one of these that can be attached to another computer to examine the hard drive. If the drive works, this is fairly easy.
There are more expensive procedures for drives that don't function.

Difficulty with recording


It sounds like you have connected the two correctly. I can only imagine that you need to check that the hifi source selector is switched to that line-in, it may be referred to as AUX. Check that the recording level control is not at zero on the hifi and if there is a volume control for line-out on the tascam. If you are able to listen to the recording on via the hifi then you are halfway there even if it doesn't get to the hifi recorder. If your hifi is a seperates system then you could try plugging the tascam in to the CD input on the amplifier.

ibm thinkpad does not boot My IBM Thinkpad 600 (Type 2645-310) stops and hang during bootup. What happens is: 1. LED test, then green Power on and orange battery/charging 3. RAM OK (Responds when I take out /put in different amount of RAM and displays correctly. I have 128 + 32 removable, + 32 internal not possible to take out) 2. I can hear fan, CD drive and evt diskette drive. If I use diskette drive the LED wil give 1 blink, if I use CD drive it will give 14 blink. 3. No cursor seen, but this is displayed: Upper left show the amount of RAM present: 196032 KB OK Upper right IBMs logo in blue; IBM Lower left shows "ThinkPad(R)" in large letters and red dot over "i". 4. Then a "rrrrrr" sound from the loudspeakers after a while, this is in fact 28 clicks shortly after each other. Then nothing more happens. Diskette and CD drive is OK (But can not be used because bootup is never finished). I hear CD speed up and then down again but nothing more happens. No effect in booting with bootable diskette or CD, "Live Linux" CD or else. Backup battery OK (3V) and if I take it out I will be asked for correct date and time when Power on. I can then use keyboard or TrackPoint to set date and time, and after that hangup at the usual point. Starting without battery, HDD, CD drive and removable memory sticks makes no difference in symptoms. Pressing and holding F1 before and during poweron and startup (in order to enter BIOS and selftest) has no effect. I could not find help on IBMs home page, but maybe I did not look at the right place. Is somebody able to help me?
