Question about Teac AG-V1050 Receiver

70's Magnavox Console Stereo

Hello! OK, before you guys laugh hysterically at what I'm playing my records on, I'm just a newbie record collector, and this is all my poor, self employed sorry a** could afford. So, my problem is one day as I was happily listening to records, there was a horrible "static" like sound that sounded as if someone was running their finger over the needle making horrible scratchy sounds. Upon close investigation my husband resoldered the wire that had come loose-thinking it was a simple fix. Well, it worked fine when we tested it then. But the next day I went to slap a record on and it did the exact same thing again--the sound only comes from the left side--which was the wire that had been resoldered. Does this sound like a cartridge prblem, a wire problem or something else entirely? Any info anyone could offer woulf be greatly appreciated, I have spent hours researching troubleshooting, and I can't find a bloody thing. Thanks in advance! Lisa

Pull the Tuner unit out. Get some "DE-OXIT" D-5 @ Guitar center. With the power OFF and the plug pulled out from the wall, spray the De-Oxit into all the pots', and switch contacts. Rotate all the pots 50 or more times, then cycle each switch the same.

This will clean most all of the oxidation that has accumulated on the switch and pot wipers and ensure a clean contact. This may or may not rectify your problem but WILL Eliminate dirty contacts from the troubleshooting list. Also with the unit being OVER 40 years old, the capacitors will more than likely (>90%) be dried out and causing drop outs, opens and shorts in the circuits.

Hope this helps

I have a Magnavox stereo console: Astrosonic Series. The record player was playing fine until a month ago. The volume is now so low you can hardly hear the record playing

Since the volume of the radio seems to be fine it is doubtful that the amplifier is malfunctioning. I will check the stylus to see that it's fully seated and examine the wires in the tonearm that connect to the cartridge. If they seem okay then I suspect the cartridge may be bad

My Magnavox Digital Disc Recorder & Video Cassette Recorder will not play DVD-RW discs. How can I solve this problem or get a replacement unit.

It claims to play -RWs finalized in DVD-VIDEO format, not VR. If a disc is recorded/finalized on a different recorder, not all players can play it. This is the price we pay for the convenience of the digital system.

I recently copied some of my old VHS tapes onto DVD-R disc & they play fine on my Magnavox, but won't play on my other DVD player. What did I do wrong?

Check through, the settings of Magnavox and do the similar region
settings in your other DVD.

In short to say, recording format and the play back format does not
match. if you corect this through the MENU available, it should be OK.

May be your other DVD is old model!

I just inherited an old Zenith console turntable and stereo combined. Stereo sounds wonderful, but when I play records, the sound isn't loud. Is this a problem with the needle or what? When I touch the...

Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"

If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.

Hope it helps

I forget the exact steps for the remote to record from my video camera to dvd recorder

You have to plug the video cam into the front ports of the Magnavox.
Then press the Setup Button
Go to Required Settings --> OK
Video Input --> OK
Go to E2 --> make sure it says "video in," unless you are using an S-Video connector --> OK
Press Setup

Start playing from Camcorder and make sure that you can see the picture on your TV screen.
Press REC on the Magnavox

Good luck!

Recorded dvd

You are probably having an issue with the discs rather then what you are trying to play them on.
The discs need to be finalized before they can be used on another player.

  1. Put the disc in the drive (the ones you have already recorded)
  2. Press SETUP on the remote
  3. Select - Disc Edit Press OK
  4. Select - Finalize Press OK
Wait until it is finished then try to play them on another player.
