Weird voices with bose qc25 headphones, when plugged in a(my) desktop computer, how to fix that?

Try using an ordinary headphone extension cable that has ONLY tip-ring-sleeve connections (not tip-ring-ring-sleeve).

Number 6 spark plug misfireing

Remove the spark plug and look at its tip. Most common causes of misfires:
  • Burned oil on the tip may be due to faulty rings or valves or just the PCV valve. In such cases the engine will smoke.
  • Gas on the tip means not enough power to the plug or a faulty plug (you may get a faulty spark plug even if it's brand new). If not the plug, the ignition system must be checked.

My car charger will not charge battery in garmin Nuvi 760

The fuse may be gone in the charger. There's a ring, near the silver tip, of the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter. If you unscrew the ring the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the silver tip as it may fall out. Replace the fuse and it may solve the problem.

I don't know which wire should be soldered on which ends.

Firstly you need to identify the contacts on the socket. Find a spare stereo jack lead and plug it into the socket. Then use a test meter (if you don't have one a torch bulb and battery will do to test continuity). Attach one of the meter probe/wires to each of the contacts (tip, ring and sleeve) on the jack plug at the other end of the cable in turn whilst touching the contacts on the plug socket with the other probe. Make a note of the results.
The sleeve contact should be the ground (earth) usually a black wire. The other two contacts (ring and tip) are your +ve left and right. It doesn't really matter which way round but stereo left is normally the tip and right the ring.

Hi, My Garmin nuvi 350 just stopped working. I had it plugged into cigarette lighter and also tried a 2nd plug in area in my car. Nothing! I read on 1 website that the silver cable tip may need a new...

There's a fuse in the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. To get at it unscrew the ring at the end beside the silver tip. When you take the ring off, being careful not to lose the silver tip, the plug comes apart. Take out the fuse and take it to any car electrical suppliers shop and they will give you a replacement for it.

Nuvi will not charge when plugged into car charger but will charge when plugged into house charger

  1. Check that the cigarette lighter socket is working. If not it may be a fuse blown in the fuse-board.
  2. In the charger plug, that goes into the cigarette lighter there is a fuse which may be blown. At the tip of the plug you'll see a ring. On most chargers it's silver but some are black. Unscrew the ring and the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the small metal tip when you open it. Replace the fuse. If there's power going to the charger and this fuse is replaced your problem should be solved.

Cannot hear myself when mic is plugged in

make shure the cable youre using between the the itch ( great little controller ) and the receiver is not balanced. here are the two options that will work. from your sure unit. xlr-to 1/4ts or 1/4ts to 1/4ts. there are two kinds of 1/4 inch connectors. these you know look like the standard guitar plug or some people call them phono plug. on the end of the prong you will see one or two rings. one ring means its tip and sleeve . two rings means your cable is tip , ring, and sleeve.
how is that software compared to the normal SL software?
i use, tech 1200s and a rane ttm54. but i dont use serato. i use torq. i love it.

Sound completely out in mono mode, distorted in stereo mode.

Assuming that you've tried plugging the headphones into a different device to check it's them, not the CD/MP3/whatever, that's at fault, then the most likely problem is a break in the screen of the headphones' cable. If you have a multimeter, you could confirm this by measuring resistances. If you look at the jack plug, you'll see it has three conductors to it called (reading from the end) tip, ring and sleeve. With the headphones set to stereo, you ought to see a few tens of ohms between sleeve and tip; the same between sleeve and ring; double that between tip and ring. My guess is that in your case, you'll only get a reading between tip and ring, with the two readings involving sleeve both showing open circuit. If you can see gross damage on the outside of the cable (where one of the children has ridden over it with a office chair again), you probably need to replace the whole cable. If there's no visible damage, the failure is usually just at the point where the cable goes into the jack plug (all the stresses when you move about are concentrated there). You can often prove this fault by wiggling the cable around while pushing it into the plug and seeing whether sound is intermittently restored. Solution here is to cut the last couple of inches off and fit a new jack plug. You will be able to buy lightweight screened stereo cable (if you need it) and a stereo jack plug of suitable size (the standard sizes are 3.5 mm and 1/4" - referring to the diameter of the sleeve) fairly cheaply from a hobby electronics shop (is Tandy/Radio Shack still on the go out there?) If you have to change the cable, use the way the old one is fitted as your guide to fitting the new one to the headphones. Either way, you'll need to fit the new jack plug. Don't forget to put the cover over the cable before you start to wire up the main terminals. Jack plugs usually come with solder tags. Of the two in the middle, the one on top is connected to tip, and the one underneath is connected to ring. The tag for sleeve is combined with a cable clamp usually just as a single hole halfway up the clamp. Strip the cable so that the insulated wires will reach the tip and ring solder tags, the bare screen(s) will reach the solder hole on the clamp, and the crimp grip at the top of the clamp will work on the sleeve of the cable. Double-check that the cover for the plug is already on the wire. Solder the red wire to the tag for ring (the lower of the two in the middle) Solder the other coloured wire (usually blue) to the tag for tip (the upper one in the middle) Solder the bare wire screen (both of them if there are two) to the cable clamp at the point where the hole is drilled through it. After all your soldering has cooled, use a pair of pliers to bend the arms at the top of the canble clamp around the sleeve of the cable and crimp to secure it all. Screw the cover onto the top of the plug. That should do it. A.
