It's a bit after Jim's post, however I had what appears to have been the same problem with my LX770 after it had been stored in the loft for quite a few years. I found the problem to be caused by the tone arm mechanisms stalling - The band that was associated with lifting the arm had turned to a black gunge and was not allowing the motor to rotate, also the motor associated with moving the arm backwards and forwards was struggling to turn. I cleaned the tone lifting pulleys and replaced with a small elastic band (for a temporary fix). This was a little fiddly as you have to take off a spring and a couple of gears to get the new band in place. I cleaned the runners and cleaned off the grease on the worm gears associated with the arm tracking (as I suspected it may be more viscus than originally installed), lightly oiled the tone arm tracking gears. It still seamed to take an amount of helping the tracking arm gears until they were able to move freely. With the tone arm mechanisms working properly the whole unit now seams to be working.
Top tips if you attempt this: WARNING - If the unit is plugged in, the transformer and high voltage wires are live regardless of whether the on button is on or off on the front of the record deck. PLEASE do not take any of my comments as recommendation you should ever do anything with the unit plugged in! Remove the little stylus carrier before you start taking the player to pieces - saves damaging it! Remove the record mat and aluminium platter before turning the unit upside down. Manually push the tone arm to about 0.5cm from its furthest travel - so you can remove the tone arm mechanism plate. May be a little stiff as the wires have to slide of the pulleys for the tone arm to be pushed. To access the tone arm mechanisms, remove the main bottom plate (and greasy spring), then undo the screws which hold on the rear undertray. With the decks buttons toward you, you should then be able to lift the rear tray slightly and tilt the tray towards you to expose the tone arm mechanisms. You shouldn't need to remove the circuit board with the control buttons on the front of the unit.
After getting it going, I found that I needed a Phono preamp to get the signal strength necessary to use the deck for transferring vinyl to my PC.
Good luck

    PS I believe that the cord with the mini jack is for use with syncro start for recording with a tape deck or similar - This shouldn't stop the record deck from working if it is not plugged in to anything.

I have a Mustec dv5300se. I got it about 4 or 5 yrs. ago.Don't know it's age. but my usb cord for uploading contents to pc. The usb end of the cord doe'snt fit the usb port on my xp. Looks totally...


I Have seen USB cords around that have various adaptors for the different USB connectors. I found them at supermarkets! However, This is only really needed if you are recording to INTERNAL MEMORY!. I have a policy of NOT recording ANY THING to internal memory on ANY device that takes a memory card (camera,phone,mp3) as transfering data using a CARD READER is usually faster. P.S. I lost the cable for my Mustek DV5300se a long time ago but I found a Canon cable that DOES work. Try a camera store! Good luck!

My ps3 was working fine four days ago. I took it to my brother-in-laws two nights ago and hooked it up. We played it on his tv with an xbox hdmi cord and it was fine. I took it home and plugged it up to...


Ok you must be using a a/v cable at your house? And the hdmi cable at your brother in laws? If this is the problem its not the xbox hdmi cable. It doesnt matter all hdmi cables work the same. Its your settings. You need to hold you power button down and it should come on and beep twice then release it and a settings menu should pop up if it doesnt hold the power button down until it comes on and shuts off then hold the power button down again until it beeps twice. Hope this helps.

    Connecting and recording camera with s video output on 1221 tx


    Hi,

    The cam setup you're trying in your surgery is similar to the type I often setup in Dental operatories for there intra-oral cameras.

    You need an tuner, if your external has S-Video port, you can simply plug into it and use windows media center or the cards software(if it came seperate) to record from the s-video feed.

    Then you can hook the S-Video output from the laptop to the TV monitor in question and run the laptop in mirrored mode to show the same image on both screens.

    Hope this helps,

    Chris

    HOW TO USE ED 8000 ON PC


    Hi im joe,
    I believe your asking on how you can use the USB function of the ED8000 to your pc. If that's the case, yes you can use the USB function but not the way you use it on regular TV where you can see the video and hear the music. First of all, the USB Function of ED8000 is design only for UPLOADING your recorded songs to pc (you must have a recording chip for upload) and NOT DOWNLOADING songs to your mic.

    If you want to use ED8000 to your PC like you use it in TV, you must have a TV TUNER CARD installed in your PC. The TV TUNER CARD has a RCA input like in TV where you connect the yellow, red, white jacks of ED8000 cord.

    Please reply if I answered your question.
