Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

When I play back my recordings as MP3's, the sound on them is very soft,and I have to turn my radio or phone way up to hear them. When I recorded them I turned the sound thing all the way up and they are still too soft. Any suggestions?

It sounds to me like you don't have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to boost the signal up. It depends on how you have it all connected up. For instance is the turntable connected to a amp that has a dedicated phono socket? If the turntable plugs into a computer you might need a pre-amp or software that can correct the low level of the signal. You can buy a Magnetic Cartridge pre-amp if that is what you need.

SOURCE: low volume and unbalanced deck

Turntables require amplification, they have very low output on their own. If your Sherwood has an Aux input try using that, older receivers often had a built-in pre-amp on the aux jack. You can obtain a stand alone pre-amp for less than $50, I use one from mcm, #40-630.

SOURCE: using mac with the ion turntable to record

Funny thing about analog to digital recording without a preamp. You will record a signal, but that signal might be below the level of human audibility, if the line levels are left at the level that left the turntable, given the absence of a PREAMP.

SOURCE: Crosley Record Player Stopped Spinning...

I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.

After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.

You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(

I have a number of files on my digital recorder where I have recorded interviews. When I press play, it shows up the length of each interview and the countdown starts, but there is no sound, just a qu


Did any of the files ever playback with sound? You can record sounds, but that doesn't mean the recorder is picking them up. A bad connection, level control setting could be wrong.
Try to do another short recording. If you are using a microphone pull the jack out during recording and put it back in again. Then listen to the recording. If there is sound when the microphone is in and it goes when it is out, then there is a possibility that somehow you recorded the other stuff with no connection and that's why there is no sound. If there is no sound on the new recording at all, then you might have a faulty playback amplifier inside the device.

As far as I know there is no way to adjust the microphone's sensitivity on this model. Make sure you are recording in a relatively quiet environment as these cameras' microphones tend to pick up everything and can generate a lot of background noise in your recordings. If you still feel like you need to shout into the mic to hear anything then you should look into getting your camera service by an authorized Canon service center. Hope this helps!

Nseed to reset message on answering machine


There are two models - The TRU8885 and the TRU8885-2 -
For the TRU8885 the manual PDF form >>>Click Here<<<
The solution is on page 24 + 57 It starts on Pg 24 as...

Record Greeting allows you to record a personal outgoing message (greeting) which
the answering system automatically plays when you receive a call.

1) Enter the Answring Setup menu, and then the
Record Greeting sub-menu (see "Entering the
Menu" on page 16). To record greeting press
[STA RT] appears.

2) Press the START soft key. You will hear “Record Greeting.“ The message counter
displays 30 and then begins to count down.

3) Position yourself near the base microphone and record your greeting.

4) When you are finished recording, press the STOP soft key. Your greeting will
playback for confirmation.

Selecting Your Greeting (Base only)

Select Greeting allows you to choose between the two outgoing messages, a prerecorded
message or your own greeting.

1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the
Select Greeting submenu (see "Entering the
Menu” on page 16). P lay back greetin g
appears, and the current outgoing message is
played. LCD is an example if you recorded your greeting.

2) Once you have recorded a personal greeting, press the CHANGE soft key to
choose the greeting. The selected outgoing message is played. Each time you
press the CHANGE soft key, the phone switches the outgoing message between
the prerecorded and the personal outgoing message.

There is more on the PDF - Just ask if you need more

For the TRU8885-2 is essentially the same. The manual PDF form >>>Click Here<<<

If we need to dig further, just ask! :) We are just a mouse click away!
Thanks

Cd rewritable player recorder tascam cdrw4u


I never had that problems. I have been using it over five years. Does it play commercially made CDs (the ones you bought at the store)? Panel shows track numbers and sound volume? Can you hear it by using a head set (phone volume control turned up? If so, now recording part, do you have input select correct (analog or digital)? Input cable(s) into right connector(s)? When you press "record" button, does it put into "pause" mode? Can you watch the incoming sound levels when it is on "pause" mode? Can you start the recording with remote's fader button or play/pause button on the machine? Good luck.
