It sounds like the output device may have failed. Check the manual it may explain it.

SOURCE: PIONEER DC-Z92 CASSETTE DECK AMPLIFIER

Is this one of the units that has a ribbon cable ( looks alot like an IDE hard drive cable) that connects all the components together? It also has a squre plastic fan that protrudes slightly from the rear (by about a 16th of an inch)? If so, it's the power module which consists of 2 boards (along the fan housing). You can probably find replacements for about $70, but I wouldn't bother. They quit making new replacements several years ago and any board you get now is just a pull from old stck units.... and they fail about 2 minutes after you put them in. Pioneer knows this but still sells the defective parts.

SOURCE: fuse holders weakened and broken

Apart from somebody spilling something on them my best guess would be something in the amp seriously overheating. Check out the power section: transformer, rectifers, voltage control section for faults. The holders can be got at Maplin (uk) or Radio Shack (US), but find the fault first BE CAREFUL it could start a fire!

SOURCE: no audio - Pioneer Amplifier A-Z370

I experienced something similar.

Symptom: After use the sound cuts out together with a mechanical click (relay sound). Turning off and waiting a bit before powering on, tends to 'fix' it, but the sound cuts out in the same way after a while.

The click led me to the little relay board inside. Inspection of the solder joints showed that a few were 'broken' ("cold soldered"). This was right below a high-wattage resistor, possibly the cause of the stress causing these random disconnects.

Fix: Resolder the joints.

SOURCE: I have sony TA-V715 amplifier,

The possibility is that one of your premap input is not working and the fault could be in the preamp input section. Possible that the input IC, the selector digital IC or the tone amp could be faulty. It will be easier to find as one section is working and you can cross check with voltage readings from teh working side. Also apply the audio test from the output to confirmt he section, replace from the working side to confirm the fault. I hope you have checked on the speakers/ ouputs by crossing.Also check for fuse or failure of the output section. Hope you try and confirm.Good day .

SOURCE: I have a DC Z-92 amplifier,PD-Z82M CD

first make sure you have phonograph and everything else plugged in where it belongs. or better yet unplug everything and start over. plug in just one source or just use the tuner. make sure that the speaker wires are not shorting out on the back of the amp or at the speakers. if there is a speaker switch on the front (for speaker A or Speaker B) make sure speaker A is pressed in (if you hooked up Speaker A on the back (you may not necessarily have speaker switchs.) make sure when you try the tuner that it is tuned to a good solid station. If after all of the above it still doesn't work, maybe the move caused somthing to come loose inside

Trying to set up just the amp & tapedeck of the Sony TA-AX335 integrated stereo system, but can't get the ribbon power cord to work.


Does the deck light-up at all, or is it completely dead? I've found that in aging tape decks, the belts will deteriorate, and change into tar. I've repaired several of the TA series Sony systems, and that's usually the case. If the deck is just 'dead,' I would recommend retrofitting standard RCA jacks on the back of the amplifier. The pins on the ribbon cable are clearly marked on the PC board inside the amp. Then, you could use any deck you want, or even a CD recorder. Hope this helps. :)

Amplifier - TA-AX380; CD Player - CDP-C40; AM/FM Tuner - ST-JX380; FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver - STR-AV570X, and Stereo Cassette Deck - TC-W380.....all Sony. Very old system, do not have the manuals, they...


Since you have 2 receivers, you can either use the Sony STR-AV570X or the TA-AX380. You will need 3 Stereo RCA Cables to connect your CD Player, Tuner, and Tape Player. The speakers connect to the receiver you choose using the speaker input terminals.

Hello. I have a question. My amplifier has a dat/dcc input. Is this input for a digital compact cassette deck only? Can I use it as aux, i.e. can I connect CD player, dvd player or tuner to this...


You could try plugging into this socket if it is a phono socket. If it is a little square black hole its probably a digital only sock and it wom't be compatable with your CD player, etc. If the sockets and plugs match turn the volume to ZERO - turn off the amp, plug in the CD, etc. and with a disc in it press play. Turn the volume up VERY slightly and listen for any sound. Try the different input buttons to make certain the circuit is complete. Keep the volume low as you don't want to damage the speakers. Good Luck

1 X 1200Mk2deck higher volume / causing spkr not to work..


Problem If you swapped the two TT's would the problem stay with the connection on your mixer? At least then you/we would know wherein lies the problem. I'm betting thge low volume is because you have the phono jacked into a line level input like AUX instead of PHONO.

Typically, what you're describing is a phone source plugged into a NON-phono connection. (Tinny, low volume - classic lack of a phono preamplifier with RIAA equaliztion). A standard old-school tuntable requires a phono preamp that is labeled "PHONO". Nothing else will give it the boost and freq response correction LP's and phono cartridges produce.

Your problem #2 alludes to a channel problem with a turntable running through your mixer. This isn't rocket science. Swapping the two turntable channels around would probably change the apparent failing channel, right? Yes - Problem out at the turntable. No - problem in the mixer. You've already hinted at the source by monkeying with the tonearm wiring. You're on the right track. The tiny multi-colored wires in the cartridge shell are very thin and delicate. Their brass fittings sometimes oxidize and reseating them as you have done usually gives some relief. Kinks in the wires could cause your intermittent symptom. At the RCA end of the tonearm cables, make sure they're seated on with a twist to wipe off oxide.

Problem #3. Is it just bothering you or is there a functional problem, too?

Connect 5 piece Sony seperates stereo system


OK, this is pretty easy to do. First connect your leads from the component outputs(i.e., tape, cd, phono, etc) to the recievers corresponding input for the device. Then connect the recievers outputs to your equalizer, if it is a seperate eq. Then the outputs of that to your amplifier, then your speakers to that. Be sure all of your wires are connected with the proper polarity. These instructions may be a little different for your exact setup but basically follow the same order minus any device you dont have.

No sound from turntable bought for our hi fi system


Hi,

Most if not all turntables would need to be connected to a PHONO INput which is high impedance with a high gain pre-amplifier stage. It will not work when connected to an AUX, CD or any line level inputs. Alternately, if your amp does not have any Phono Inputs, you can feed the turntable output to a preamp which can then be connected to any any line level inputs. An example may be found here or here. Additionally, there are some turntables with a built-in preamp.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Low Audio


You need to connect the turntable to a PHONO input on your amplifier. Not all amplifiers have a phono input, if yours doesn't you need to get an RIAA pre-amp to plug your deck into & this connects to your amplifier.

This is because although the audio outputs on the turntable look the same as all the other components, they are very different. The signal has not been amplified up to line-level like tuners, CD players, tape decks, etc. You need to get this thin, weak signal boosted.

Your 3 options are:

* Connect directly to the PHONO input on your amplifier if you have one. If you don't:
* Connect deck to a RIAA amp (also called a phono stage) then connect to any input EXCEPT phono on your amplifier
*Connect the deck to a DJ mixer then hook the mixer up to any input on the amp EXCEPT phono.
