It might still be a installation issue but if you are using a Surround Sound type amp that might be on. If the unit is doing it by itself then there could be an internal problem with a delay line or A/D converter.
In all of my years I have never heard of this symptom though.

SOURCE: No sound on cassette deck

Hi Does the deck have VU meters?...or a graphic display of some kind to indicate there is sound being picked up from the heads? If there are, and they are not moving or flashing, as the case may be, then you could have a wire off the head, or a problem in the preamp circuit, or if the deck is older, it could be as simple as a dirty play/record switch. I would need more info to help further. Good Luck!

SOURCE: NAKAMICHI CASSETTE DECK 1 NOT PLAYING?

it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions

SOURCE: Technics RS-TR272 dual cassette deck

Ahh, Another Dual cassette deck. These are typically not worth a repair charge. I went looking for a service manual but Hi Fi Engine did not have one but they had a Owners Manual. Any unit that has a specification as to wow and flutter starting new at .18% was never made to be a long lasting deck of any quality. I don't like to be negative about people equipment but you might be better off getting a better deck from the start. If you think it is worth the repair, then send it to someone but I don't think you will want to sink $100 into a unit like this.
I am not saying it is unrepairable but that with what you come out in the end you could have made a better choice for a deck to buy.
It is probably a bad solder joint or bad capacitor on the circuit board.
I am in Chicago and would look at it for you if you want.

If he had it done by a person who knows what he is doing he most likely used a 1/2 track tape recording device. These are different than 1/4 track unit as they are used professionally an for mastering. You would need to find a 1/2 track type deck to play the tape back- they are made by Tascam, Otari, Studer, Pioneer, Sony and other lesser brands.

Got panasonic cd-radio put in vehicle,it's playing but no sound


Did it ever play? Original mercedes vehicle had external amps and faders that were controled by the deck it self. If deck was removed most likely you need to install new speaker wire to the speakers.

How to use Audioline Pro DJ Multimedia Mixer M Dex 3.0


I have been recently using this Cd Dj deck at parties and have some general knowledge of the product, it has alot of potential. Is there anything in particular that you need help with? Or is it the general concept of using them.
Currently, i don't think there are that many websites that explain how to use the Cd decks, however i can provide you with some basic information. Most of the information here could be worked out by trial & error.
- Pitch control on the right of each cd deck can be slid up ( slows it down %) and slid down (speeding the track up %) i think the pitch control has a range of either +-10% or +-16%.

- Cue button, has the potential for Cue'ing or setting up the cd to instantly jump to the "cue'd" point with the press of this CUE button. This is done by either pressing play/pause button and rotating the jog wheel to a point of time in the track which automatically sets the cue point OR holding down the >> or << search button to find a spot within the track at a greater speed.

-Vinyl mode. Pressing this button will set the deck to the "vinyl mode" to simulate scratching or even backspins. pressing this button again will change the mode back.

- the Crossfader (or 'X' fader) button will select the left cd track if the x fader is all the way to the left and the right track if the x fader is all the way to right. having the X fader in the middle will play both tracks together.

- Low, Mid, High. These nobs on the middle section of the deck change the individual track by which it is corresponds. (Left side = left cd track, and vica versa) Low refers to the Bass of a track which can be essential for mixing two tracks and elminating excess bass noise. Mid refers to the drumming and even synth of a track, and changing this can result in some cool sounding effects. High refers to the 'high' frequencies of the track playing, such as snares, hi hats and possibly vocals. All these controls are crucial to understand in order to mix 2 songs together successfully. It's good to get a chance to muck around with these cointrols. The middle of each control resets the setting to normal or default.

- Channel fader. the two controls that slide up & down on both sides of the mixer on the deck. This is also referred to the volume setting. Useful for mixing seamlessly one track into another.

- Gain. This control at the top of the mixer refers to the volume level or 'gain' of the cd track that it corresponds to.

- Jog wheel. Serves 3 purposes. firstly it can be used whilst a song is playing to temporarily speed up or slow down the track to match with the song on the opposite side. secondly, whilst holding down the 'search' button, operates as a control to quickly find a spot in a song. and lastly when selecting "vinyl" mode, can simulate the reaction of a vinyl turntable. The scatch function, and backspin effect.

- The pitch button, is just another control to speed up or slow down a song temporarily whilst holding down the '+' or '-' button.

- Reverse button, for a certain amount of time will play the song on the left or right in reverse.

- Time. this button is essential to change the time selection on the cd deck, to either "Time elapsed", "Time remaining" and "total time remaining on the cd".

- the "tap" button, allows the user to physically "tap" the button in time with the song's beat, which calculates the Beats per Minute (Bpm) of that song. which is essential to work out the bpm of 1 track to mix the speed with that of the opposite deck.

- Cd/usb/sd, changes the mode of system reading. from CD to USB or SD card.

I really hope this general guide to using the Audioline ProDJ MDex3 has helped!
Peace. Marc.

All of a sudden my Echo Indigo DJ soundcard will play both virtual CD players on my PCDJ software on one channel. For a while, I had cd 1 on one channel and cd2 on the other. I am using a pig tail plug...


I can run audio on 3 separate channels/outputs of my laptop

I use Tricerasoft Swift Elite DJ software but the areas you need to look at for troubleshooting are probably similar:

1) check the (PCDJ) software settings for selecting the channel outputs of your Indigo DJ on each deck/ player. NOTE: 1/2 and 5/6 are the same physical port (headphone port), while 3/4 and 7/8 are also shared on the Line Out port. So make sure you use for eg. one player uses 1/2, and the other player uses 3/4 ONLY IF you want them running out to separate channels on the mixer

I personally run both my decks off the same channel, ie 3/4 so that my software can do the mixing for me. My mixer only acts as an master control device where everything else connects

2) Make sure you check your IndigoDJ Console (installed to the Windows Start menu under Echo Audio, Indigo DJ), if you have any conflicts or if for some reason one particular channel pair gets inadvertently muted, resulting in no sound coming from the port.

3) I also use my onboad sound card (typically for previewing music or for an auxillary output). This is obviously controlled by the Operating system... in Windows is is through the Sound properties, default sound device. I recommend NOT using Indigo DJ as a default sound card -- but that is a personal preference.

So in this way you actually have 3 outputs for sound

As far as cabling is concerned, it depends on what you are connecting to. I use a 1/8 (mini computer) jack to 1/4 whcih then plugs into a direct box (eleminates any static hum etc), then from the DI box using an XLR cable to the mixer. Your setup may be slightly different.

Hope this helps!

Car 6-9s soud crappy with new deck


what do you mean? distorted? low? echoey? i know you checked the wiring but try one more time. did you use a wire harness? remember the speaker wires out the radio with the black line on them is the negative side. make sure whatever color wire from the stereo that you plug to the car factory wire to, and know if it was positive or negative when you go plug it on the speaker.

Echo when playing surround sound


You want to adjust the "DELAY" setting on the receiver. The standard (default) delay setting is 20mS, which may need to be shortened if your speakers are well behind your listening position. In a proper setup, you should not detect a significant echo effect in surround programming (unless it is a purposely "echoey" scene). Also, make sure you don't have any of the "enhanced" DSP modes engaged -- some of these are quite echoey. if it has speaker set up, there should be a setting for distance. You might have it set close, so that by the time you hear the fronts, the rears should go. Try setting it farther each time until it sounds right. good luck
