Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Thomas collectors edition antique style am/fm radio that also came with an audio cassette player built into it. It is model BD 121. The unit is about 20 years old. I need to replace the radio band lamp and the cassette drive belt. What voltage and wattage is the lamp supposed to be, and where can I get a new drive belt?

SOURCE: RCA audio system,and three disc.

I always encountered that kind of problem,the audio works but discs player not working.This kind of a problem of a disc player had three causes,first the lense is busted already secondly the MPEG MEMORY IC is busted,thirdly the roller that's moving back and port bringing the lense set stock up full of dirt this is most common problem.That why whateveryou did is not functioning.If you know how to open your unit it's better. First you do is to clean the roller with the use of a lighter fluid to take the old greases that already harden with dirt. After that all is clean put a first class greases type-A only little to the roller and wipe the lense with a cotton buds. If all this procedure nothings happens,you better change the lense with desame code number, to avoid conflict.If the lense is change still not functioning that's the time you change the MPEG memory IC.I assure it to you it's works 100%.

Hi,

The RCA Victor A-25 share the same schematics with model A-38 as well as the Canadian General Electric models KL70 and KL76.

Nostalgia Air does have it. Use this web page. It is listed as:
CGE 76

SOURCE: My three-year-old Model One has started making

I found in some cases that the tuning capacitor collects small particles of dust causing snaps, pops, and drop outs. One solution is get some electronic cleaning spray from radio shack or service shop. now open the back of the radio, look for square plastic box it is transparent and you will see metal plates with small screws. On the top you will see small round holes in the plastic, attach the supplied straw and spray inside two good blasts should do it. rotate the tuning several times back and forth this cleans the plates, until spray dries the station will be on wrong frequency until dries

Does the thomas collectors edition jukke box radio modell cr-11 come with a radio tuner if so where is it located


I know you posted this awhile ago, but I just acquired one myself and yes--it does have a tuner. Under the little window with the "record player" in is a panel of songs titles. That flips down and the tuner is underneath. I also have a question--how can I change the burned out lights on one side of mine?

Trying to hook up speakers to Pyle Pro PD1000 stereo receiver w/built-in DVD/CD player. I believe that I have speaker wires hooked up correctly but when I play CD no sound. I can actually hearing sounds...


Hi,
I went thru user manual..there is no special way of wiring speakers..
pls check carefully the speaker connections again and the "speaker selector" too..
what about "MUTE" button ? it should be "OFF" ...
and try to test it on FM radio first ..
just in case ,if you need the soft USER MANUAL pls visit the URL below..

I have a 1979 Zenith Allegro Console Stereo and would like to know how much it is worth.


it depends on the condition and who you find to buy it. if it is in new condition and you can find a collector that needs one its worth about $400. if its just a normal used stereo and your selling it on craigslist you would be lucky to get $50-$100. for it. unfortunately they weren't amazing stereos and they are not all that collectible at this point in time. you usually see them in free adds or by the side of the road. If you hold on to it for another 30 years, it should be worth something though. :)

I need the schematic diagram for an antique radio RCA VICTOR model A25 made in Montreal circa 1941


I wasn't able to find information for the A25 specifically, however, there are a LOT of antique RCA Victor (US and Canadian) schematics here:

Do you have any more details about the radio? An alternate model number perhaps?

Please rate this answer if helpful.

We have a phonograpph with AM/FM radio, cassette and CD player, Model KA-1916. We have owned it about 18 months. The cassette deck does not work now. It played fine but now when you put in a cassette...


The most likely problem is with the belt that goes around the flywheels of the deck. You would need to take the cassette deck out of the unit and check it out to be sure. If the belt has come off or is broken, it needs to be replaced with the same type of belt and then it needs to be put back on in the exact way it is meant to be put on. This is something that may not be very easy for you to do unless you have some experience with this sort of repair. Taking apart a cassette deck can cause more problems with it, if it is not put back together perfectly.

The best solution for you would probably be to take it in to a repair center. If you decide to try it yourself, I am willing to offer help, but I do advise against it if you have no experience with them.

Let me know if you want more help,

Dave
