Theres supposed to be a harness that plugs into that connector. It will have the international color standard wires. Contact a kenwood dealer to get the harness.

    Why did you rate my answer "unhelpful"? If you have exposed pins, it means you need the harness....



The middle is the ground

As for the cord itself there are three pins. Pin 1 is power and pin 3 is negative. Let me know if this helps

I have a DOD Mixer console, model 1642. It is giving me a 60 cycle hum. When I turn on the board all of the LED light max out. I have turned it on and off a couple of times to see if I can get it to...

I had this problem when I was attaching a "custom" power supply (an ATX power supply) to my DOD 1642 (circa 1992, revived in April 2012). I had a massive buzz and every LED was totally lit up. The problem ended up being a grounding issue.

If you're using the stock power supply, make sure the ground is attached firmly both at the three-prong connector at the wall as well as the 7-DIN connector on the back of the board. You may want to take an OHM meter and make sure the grounding pins are all in contact throughout the power supply: With everything unplugged from wall power and the board, test from either (or both) of the DIN pins to the ground prong of power plug (on the adapter NOT THE WALL). Then, test for connectivity between the two grounding pins.

If you're using a custom power supply like me, make sure you're grounding to a proper and valid ground. I ended up attaching my ground to three of the ATX grounding pins and the hum went away. My 20 year old mixer is alive and well now.

White dots all over screen

check ur cable connection first. if its also with dvd, the go for an extension box ( power strip) with. surge protection and emi filter.
if ur tv or any device comes with three pin connection ( three pin plug) then remove the ground from that socket also. i think white dot comes because of electrical interference. check all other power out lets for any loose contact.
then check again.

I need to know where to connect the three seperate 2 pin connectors from the ''power switch'' to the motherboard on my eMachines C2685 desktop computer.

The eMachines C2685 uses an FIC VC37GV motherboard. (First International Computer, Inc.)

Here is the motherboard manual,

After you click on the above link, give it up to 30 seconds to download. This is a PDF file.

Barring you cannot download the file, I will state the connections for the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
(Plus state the page to reference to, in case you can download)

View the first link, with the photo of the FIC VC37GV motherboard.

As shown, Processor is at the top, Ram Memory slots are to the right.

The Front Panel header is located at the very bottom right corner.

It is parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard. There are two rows of pins.
(Page 12)

The Front Panel header has 5 pins going across the top, and 4 pins across the bottom.

The top row of pins are numbered Odd.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Evenly.

On the Top row starting on the Right side, going towards the left, the pins are numbered 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

On the Bottom row starting on the Right side, going towards the left, the pins are numbered 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HDD LED. (HarDDrive activity LED)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for a Dual Color Power On LED, if used.
Green goes to Pin 2. Yellow goes to Pin 4.

Otherwise Pin 2 is Positive, ( + ), and Pin 4 is Negative. ( - )

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
(PWR1, or SW1)

There is a small 3 pin header, just above the Front Panel header. (Page 12)

This is for a Power LED that has either two wires, or three wires.
The pins are numbered from Right to left.

Pin 1 is for the Power LED, and Pin 2 is for Ground, if using a two wire Power LED. (Not dual color)

Pin 1 is for the Power LED, and Pins 2 and 3 are for Ground (GND), if using a three wire Power LED.
(Page 13)

Convert three pin plug to four pin

These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one on top is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown on the bottom.
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.

Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.

Wiring problem

Usually Sony EQ's have a square, 4-pin connector on the back of them

If your looking at the back of the EQ, the upper left pin is +12V (power), the upper right is the Remote, the lower left it Ground, and the lower right is usually not used, but can sometimes be the Illumination circuit... but again, usually is not used.
