Question about American Audio Velocity MP3
When I turn on my American Audio Velocity (silver) everything lights up weird and flashes. If I disconnect the right side (the cable going from the cd player to the turntable) then the left side goes back to normal and then I can plug the right side in and it will be normal. I have to play a cd in both sides for awhile and let them skip before it starts reading the disc properly. If I let it play a CD for awhile it will start working perfectly fine (sometimes) but, I don't want to go through that every single time I want to use it. Sometimes the problem won't resolve, it will just continue to skip and crackle. Does anyone know what's going on with it or if there is anything I can do to fix this problem? Thanks in advance.

are your cd-r data or audio..(maybe AAV cant play the data disk) make sure its audio ...you can also try wiping the disk with a dry paper towel in a circular motion only (one way)...get any fingerprints /oils off the disk...

There are tw possibilities for thei fault witn American Audio. The first one is, trouble with the CD mechanism. If CD try does not engage well into, and the CD 'IN" sensor leaf switch does not engages, the system control IC wont get any CD IN pulse from the mechanism and will behauted. The second one is with voltage, that goes ot the second CD section. There are seperate regulated voltages for both CD sections. As your complaint post indicates, that theere is no voltage now with this section, as no display is there, and Cd tray won't come out, and pitch preference selector LEDs blinks. The fault is actually with the internal circuit, especially to system control section itsef. You have to check all the voltages to that section, by referring to its schematic diagram. Actually, this is a very skilled work as system control section can be considered as the 'brain' of the whole system, and ultimate care should be given when servicing these circuits. A very high quality digital multimeter, capable of measuring all functions including frequency and even waweforms of different test points. I advice you, not to make any repair with this set if you are not sound knowledge in digital elelctronics and experience in servicing such complicated circuit parts. The fault may be simple, but detecting the actual point of fault is a skilled work.
If you think you can, and have confidence; just proceed with. Otherwise get it repaired, either by any well experienced service technician of by the Authorised Service Center for American Audio at your town. OK.
