Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Sound cuts out

While playing a dvd, the sound will stop for a few seconds and then start up again. I made sure all speakers were hooked up right and working. No problem when using the am/fm. Haven't tried vcr yet. A home-recorded dvd did not have a problem.

    Have purchased a lens/disk cleaner, but haven't used it yet. Will report after trial.

    Finally tried the lens cleaner disk.   Made no difference in problem.  With a self-recorded dvd, there was no problem -- only purchased disks.  I think the problem is in disk compatibility.

This sounds like a lens pickup problem try using a lens cleaning disk. The recording beam is a higher intensity beam and it may funcion properly.

Denon DCM-370/270 - issue playing CD's. A CD will

I would replace the audio cable from the CD player to the Denon amp, a long shot, if you have other devices hooked to the amp and plays fine, the problem will be in the CD player. However! if all sound sources have the same problem, the issue is with the Denon unit.

Receiver cuts out when playing a cd

Could be overheating, make sure nothing is blocking the vents at the top

Could be 4 ohm speaker when you need an 8 ohm-check speakers

Could undersized speaker wire. Go by some lamp cord and splice the ends and use it, do it anyway whether its the cause of the cutting out or not-it'll sound better

By a can of co-contact cleaner, unplug the receiver and spray the heck out of the circuits

Technics amplifier sound cuts after a few seconds operation

hi there if the sound cuts out after a few seconds and then if you turn it back on again if it does the same you might have a few problems ,,
make sure you are not overloading with to many speakers
make sure all positives are to positive and negatives are to negatives
make sure the unit is not over heating or getting to hot make sure it has room to circulate the hot air
and also check the wiring for any breaks or rips that could be touching each other to make it shutdown
when it cuts out its going into safe mode to prevent further damage one of those will defintly be your problem good luck with it hope this helps

Sound problem

Make sure all speakers that are hooked up sound ok. If any of them sound lower then the others or sound distorted you may have a speaker with a partially shorted voice coil. If speaker or speakers pop when power is first applied you may have a grounded speaker that should not be grounded. Each speaker wire rides on 6vdc and if any speaker sees a ground you will have 6v across voice coil which would explain any popping noise when first turned on and radio may play for awhile then overheat. be sure speakers are 4 ohm min per ch otherwise amp will run to hot. Just a few Guesses

Sound cutting out after 40 to 60 minutes of playing a DVD

Have you tryed the cleaning of the lens first?? I would for sure do that. If that dosent work i would connect the unit to another amp and see if it still cuts out too. If it does it could have a problem with the tracking or focus gain/offwet alighnment. These are not consumer alighnments, as you need a scope and the know how to hook up the player to the scope and monitor the rf waveform along with test disc. Other then cleaning the unit theres not alot we as consumers can do. Good luck
