WEAK SOUND WHEN CONNECTED TO DURABRAND AMP

I have a cheap wally world amp (Durabrand) that my Memorex tv and Sony cd-dvd player sound great on but when I connect my JVC L-AX3 turntable to it the sound is weak and only comes out of 2 speakers. Is it my amp or my turntable?

The electrical output from a turntable actually comes from the cartridge on the tone arm. Specifically, it's generated by an interaction between a magnet and a coil inside the cartridge. They come in two types, MC ("moving coil") and MM ("moving magnet") according to which of the two elements moves and which is fixed. MM cartridges produce more current but MC cartridges usually sound better. No matter which you have though, the total output is too low for the regular line inputs on amplifiers. Ten or twenty years ago, amps has special "phono" inputs. This would have a special pre-amplifier in it that would amplify the cartridge's singal to a level suitable for the rest of the amp. Most amps having a phono input only deal with MM cartridges, which have a higher signal.

I use an MC cartridge with an amp that doesn't have a phono input at all; therefore I needed to buy a special external phono pre-amp. I bought a Musical Fidelity X-LPS. But cheaper pre-amps do exist.

Which is the best for a CD player with Big Earphones..New Durabrand, Memorex or Coby..or Sony?


Cheap CD/DVD/Blu-ray players are all the same. They come with ear phone ports for most all types of head sets and any type work OK. The best bet is to go to an electronics store (BestBuy) and try some before to buy any.

Memorex mvd2047 dvd player - no audio when playing dvd


Regarding the problem with the sound on your DVD player, I would suggest you to make sure the audio cables (red and white) are connected properly to the TV and player.

Also, try using a different set of cables since those ones might not be working and this is why you are not getting audio. On the Memorex remote you will find a mute button, make sure it is not activated.

How to get 5.1 sound from plasma tv to home theater system?


You just need to connect an Audio Out port on the back of your TV to an Audio In port on the back of your JVC box. See what connections you have, I'm sure there are lots of options for you such as HDMI or just normal 2-cord audio cables.

No output from DVD/CD player to TV


Best bet/least effort is to get a newer, slightly more robust DVD player. This unit sells for less than $30. It costs more to ship it over from China than it does to manufacture the player. No kidding! For an ultra-cheap DVD player I'd go with a ~$35 player from wally world. Best of luck.

PS-T3 connection to Sherwood 4105 Receiver


You need a phono stage (phono amp) between the turntable and receiver to boost the lower signal from the turntable. If your receiver has phono inputs, use those as there will be a built-in phono stage.

If the unit is not under warranty then you can open it and have a look inside. Keep your eyes peeled for bad soldering joints and if it is dusty clean it out.
However if it is under warranty and you open it, then you will break the conditions of the warranty and if it needs repairing then you will be charged the full amount.

Dvd reading


I had the same thing happen to a used DuraBrand 7" Portable DVD Player. Check and see if the laser transport is locked in at the top of the track -- which would be in position to read the outer edge of the DVD. The laser transport gets locked into this position and you get "no disc" error messages.

I removed the bottom of the DVD player -- a matter of seven screws -- and moved the laser transport by hand nearer to the center post of the DVD turntable. This cured the problem and my DuraBrand is working fine now.

I have no idea what makes the laser transport move to the extreme outer position and get locked there, but this solution works. Good luck with your own.

No Sound when playing CD or DVD


Hi, in the menu check that the output is set correctly for dvd playback. ie not through the preout for an amp. It is possible for the unit to be set up to play surround sound for dvd's. Worth a try?
