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

Re: 70's Magnavox Console Stereo

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

Setup help for record player (Pro-Ject Carbon Debut) and pre-amp (ART DJPRE II) into Denon AVR-1909. I have everything setup properly, but I cannot get the subwoofer to turn on with my 2-channel settings...

In two channel mode, there will be no subwoofer signal unless you change the front speakers to 'small'. If you set the front speakers as 'large' then the full frequency spectrum will be sent to the front speakers, and none to the sub. Switching from bluray may keep the surround configuration until you restart as you mentioned.

I put in my dvd on my magnavox blue ray player and it says disc error then something like disc not recorded for thins region code * 2 * 45 *

DVDs are recorded for three world regions (for copyright reasons and to match the electronic TV system also broadly in three world regions known as PAL, SECAM & NTSC)
You're likely in the USA as you refer to the Magnavox brand.
Your region is 1 and system NTSC.
Your machine is correctly telling you it can't play the disc because it's for Region 2 system PAL.
However, there are multi region players available, for a few dollars more, which play discs of any region or system.

I expected that the RCA leads from my turntable would just plug into the back of the RCD-W500C, but the manual indicates a somewhat complex cabling arrangement through the amplifier. I have not been able...

Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck

Will not drop 45's

I think the spindle is broke or stuck in some way! if you have another one try that! and if you dont you may be able to use those little plastic adapter thingys and place them on the 45s and try that !
It sounds to me like the spindle is sticking and is pulling the turntable belt and slowing it down!
I would look for a new/used spindle
I think this will fix ya!

Turntable failure

The drive wheel has probably dried up and is just slipping. Also, any grease that was in there has probably turned more to glue. This unit will need some TLC and some time to get all of the old grease out. A re-lube as well as a new wheel (if still available) and you will be good to go!
