Question about Apple AirPort Express (M9470Z/A) 802.11g/b (M9470ZA) Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Airport express streams audio for a short period then quits

I can start streaming a song to my stereo in itunes (ver 8) when, after about 0 seconds, it goes silent.  The progress bar in itunes keeps going as if the song is playing, but no sound.  If left alone for a period, it will stream again for a short time, then  quit again.  Throughout, the airport express is shwoing in the speaker selection box on itunes so I assume I'm not losing communications with it.  Help?
Note:  I have tried different stereos, and even tried an old airport express and have had the same problem.

    That exactly describes the problem I've been having for quite a while. Today it escalated and starting going off and on at intervals of a few seconds, but not consistent gaps in sound.

Make sure that your setup for the Express is set to "join the network" and not extend.
Also remember that with wireless technology there can be interference from microwaves, phones, etc.
If you are running programs that use a lot of bandwidth, this will cause the drop outs as well.

If you have a newer Express, another cure can be to use the 5GHz band for the broadcast channel.

there should be an aux/analog in. if the analog/aux in does not use red and white rca jacks, then it must be a single 1/8th inch jack input, like a headphone jack, and you will have to get an rca to 1/8 inch "Y" adapter

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya community.

Please try download and Install MacTube Player to play Youtube video or music... Let me know the result please...

Also to play the music in stereo receiver please follow below steps.

  1. Plug in the Apple AirPort Express into a power outlet near the stereo. Connect an audio cable from the audio port on the AirPort Express to the audio in port on your stereo. If your stereo has a different sized audio port than the 3.5 mm one on the AirPort Express, you will need to use an adapter to connect it.
  2. Plug in an ethernet cable from the AirPort Express to your computer or wireless router for a wired connection. For a wireless connection, connect the AirPort Express to your existing home network, or use a computer with a wireless network adapter to connect directly to the AirPort Express.
  3. Connect to the AirPort Express with your computer as directed in the manual to run the setup with the AirPort utility. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. Open iTunes and play the music to your stereo. There should be a pop up in the lower right corner after you run the Airport utility.
Let me know how far you could able to reach in a result. Our expert friends are here anytime to solve your issue.

Power cuts off after 2 seconds after stereo start button is pressed


Disconnect your speaker wire's from your receiver, and then turn the receiver on.

If your receiver cuts off with the speakers disconnected, there is something wrong with your receiver, and take your Sherwood receiver to a qualified reputable technician.

If your receiver stays on with the speakers disconnected, their is a short circuit either in your speakers wires, or in your speakers. Make sure your speaker wires are pushed all the way in the speaker terminals in the back of the receiver, and do not leave no naked speaker wires exposed. If you have too long of bare speaker wires exposed at the receiver's speaker terminal, or at the speaker's terminals, they could touch each other, and cause the receiver to cut off. If the speaker wires are OK, then you may have a short circuit in your speakers.

Just installed Airport Express. I can select it from iTunes on my PC running vista. The music plays but songs intermittently stop...it like it can;s download fast enough...suspect the laptop can't send...


Make sure that between the laptop and airport express you don't have devices that can interfere, like microwaves, phones, etc.

Also, if its a newer express try using the 5GHz band and that the airport is set up to "Join the network" not "Extend".

Apple® - AirPort Express Wireless-N Base Station


No. The airport express just has a shorter range. You can use both a regular base and express to extend the range further. Also, the express can be used at your home stereo. You can play your Itunes library directly to your stereo with an adapter to the express. Anyway, the express is just a less powerful wireless, with some special features. We print through it and use it exclusively. May add base station later. Good luck.

Hi I was searching this site for a solution to a problem I am having and came across your post. I had the same issue and what I did was reset my airport express to factory settings (detailed in manual) - this enabled the Airport extreme to find/pair with it.
