Does this Karaoke Mixing Amp have voice cancel


The short answer is NO, it does not... BUT you should understand what MOST voice cancellers do. ESSENTIALLY they ASSUME that the vocalist is centered betweeen the stereo recording mics. The "voice cancellor" merely subtracts the left and right signal which REDUCES the voice from the center of the stage. Frankly, it doesn't work all that well. Somee typicall leaks through and often is garbled.
For Karaoke you best stay with media that already has vocals stripped from it.

No Sound or Garbled Sound on a Nuvi Series GPS


I've seen many posts of "No Sound" or "Garbled Sound" for the Garmin Nuvi Series. This is a common problem with the Nuvi.

In order to troubleshoot this problem, we need to determine if it's a hardware or software issue or a setting issue.

No Sound:

1. Try the obvious. Is your volume setting turned up?

2. Is the sound muted with the mute button?

3. If your Nuvi has a FM transmitter, is it selected to "FM" or "Speaker"? The "FM" setting will mute the internal speaker. Setting it to "Speaker" will send sound to the speaker.

Garbled Sound:

1. Does the sound seem to be better at lower volume settings?

If you still can't hear audio or if the sound is garbled, then we now have to determine if the internal speaker is defective. The easiest way to do this is:

1. Plug a set of headphones into the headphone jack. Now try listening to the sound. Listen for the touchscreen beeps, MP3 audio, voice directions, etc. Try adjusting the volume using the headphones. If you can hear sound through the headphones and it's clear and not garbled, then your internal speaker is defective.

The headphone jack is not only a jack but it's also a switch. When you plug in your headphones, the audio amplifier of your Nuvi is switched from the internal speaker to the headphone jack. When you unplug the headphones, your Nuvi's audio amplifier is reconnected to the internal speaker.

Now, if you can't hear audio through either the internal speaker or the headphone jack, you may have a different problem.

1. The internal audio amplifier (hardware) is defective.
2. There is a software problem. You could try resetting your Nuvi with the reset button or perform a factory reset. The software problem is more likely if you can hear MP3 audio or touch screen beeps but not speech.

The internal speaker has a voice coil. The voice coil is nothing more than a thin piece of long wire, wrapped around a magnet, numerous times. If you can't hear any sound, it is very likely that this coil is "open"; meaning that the wire has broken inside. If the sound is garbled, this is an indication that the speaker is mechanically defective and not reproducing the sound as it should. The speaker has a "diaphram" that moves in and out as it reproduces sound. If the diaphram has been damaged, it can't move in or out like it should and reproduce the sound clearly. There is also a possiblity that the voice coil has shorted windings, meaning that instead of it being a long piece of wire, it's now shorted to its adjacent windings and is electrically shorter now. Again, this can impact the reproduction of sound.

So, why did your speaker go bad?

1. It's possible it was defect in the manufacturing process and failed prematurely.
2. You might have had the volume up too high. I recommend using the lowest volume level possible. High volume levels put greater stress on the diaphram and may overheat the voice coil.
3. A speaker is an electro-mechanical device. It's subject to being damaged if you happen to drop or jar your Nuvi and/or operate it outside of its normal operating parameters.

What's the Next Step?

If your Nuvi is under warranty, I strongly suggest that you contact the manufacturer and tell them what happened. Tell them all of the steps you have gone through to confirm that the speaker is defective. If the warranty is still in effect, they should repair or replace your Nuvi.

If your Nuvi is out of warranty, try calling the manufacturer anyway. You have nothing to lose. Maybe they will replace it anyway.

If you have no sucess with the manufacturer, you will need to take your Nuvi to someone who is qualified in repairing your Nuvi.

I hope this tip has been helpful to you. Feel free to contact me if you have further questions or require further assistance with this problem.

Best wishes,
- Jim

Earlywarning ew3010de voice is messed up can't understand what the thing is saying


The speaker's voice coil likely has overheated, and now it is rubbing on the insides of the speaker magnet. This causes very garbled sound. All Sunkyong Early Warning radar detectors provide horrible radar detection performance. You should seriously consider getting a much better radar detector.

Nuvi 350 Garbled voice


How is the other sound? Like MP3 sound? Is it garbled there? Try using headphones. If the sound is good there, then your internal speaker is bad.

Distorted voices


if it sounds garbled it may be due to digital communication. most scanners cannot recieve the digital communication. that is why you hear a garbled inaudible sound from it.

Answering machine replay is garbled


Your handset battery will have no effect on the answering machine audio, providing your regular audio is fine (its fine when you make a phone call right?), I will assume yes. I have seen this problem in these models, and your problem lies in your base station, and the only fix you can attempt is to go into base programming and delete as much as you can out of the memory, greetings, old messages, etc.. Power down, then power back up again. Call in and leave a message. See if it sounds better through the handset or the speaker on the base when you play it back. If its garbled both ways (reviewing through the handset or on the speaker base) , then your problem is in your base memory. If it is just garbled on your handset, then it may be a radio module problem with the base, either way it probably needs to go in for repair. I don't know if Panasonic still repairs that model, but if you google Panasonic cordless telephone repair, you will find someone. Good Luck, CG
