How do I re connect my equipment after a move?

Your input's that you need to use are labeled on the rear of the chassis. Make ALL of your connections with the power cord unplugged.
The connection types for each component that you'd like to use are also labeled. For the CD player you may see such connections as coax, optical or L& need to only connect one type. What's available depends on your receiver. For a cassette tape player however there will be only L&R, connect from the L&R outputs of the player into the L&R input on the receiver.
For your speakers, you have a couple of options depending on what you have connected to your speaker cables but the most important thing is getting the polarity connected properly. Not all speaker cables are color coded for polarity but instead have a marking on the insulating sheath along the entirety of it's length or may simply have one silver wire and one copper wire. You only need to make sure that the polarity of the connecting terminals between the receiver and speaker match; having the cables marked is only to make that connection easier...just connect one wire at a time, and make sure that your speaker placement position also matches the terminal you're connecting to.

Akai cassette deck GXC-725D

It could be head dirt, bad switches, broken head wire or electronics problem. A Technician or you if you know electronics will need to get into it further to find where the problem is. There si no magic wand except some alcohol and a Q tip if the heads are dirty.

Akai cassette deck GXC-725D playback only on one channel

Clean switches, check head wiring if it is a three head deck and then there could be bad relay contacts, defective electrolytic capacitors and even a malfunction in a muting circuit. That is why there are no easy answer but to get in with a scope and find out where the signal stops.

Speaker connection out no sound

GREEN - "line out" --> speakers with their own amplifier to boost the sound-level

BLUE - "line in" --> connect to "L/R audio output" from a cassette player

RED - "microphone input" --> microphone

How do i connect a kenwood krc 394 radio cassette,+ve battery, eth, and speaker connections.

Head unit color code:

12V switched-Red
Illumination or Dimmer-Orange/Orange w/white stripe
Blue-Power Antenna
Blue wwhite stripe-Amp turn on

Whites-FL speaker
Greys-FR speaker
Greens-RL speaker
Purples-RR speaker
(Black stripes negative)

If you have a female harness to connect to the veicle side you will pretty much color match. The only exception is that you may only have an amp turn on wire but only a power antenna on the vehicle. In this case you would connect blue w/white stripe wire from radio harness to the blue antenna wire on the vehicle side.

If you are doing a hardwire (factory plug has been cut off) you can obtain a wiring code for your vehicle at for most vehicles.

How to connect an LOC to e39 1997 radio cassette

Hello randon_dicks,

The inputs to the LOC should be tapped from your rear speakers. If you have the color code of the wiring from either the cassette player or from the vehicle wiring, tap the wires behind the dash. If you do not have the color code, you can tap directly from the speakers. In either case, it's best to use good quality twisted pair wire and keep the wires as short as possible. Likewise, use good quality RCA cables from the LOC output to your amp location.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)

Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)

where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

Hi pelagic

The motor is probably faulty. The heat is a give away for that. Many motors for older decks can still be sourced. Can you see what part numbers may be on the back plate of the motor and I can find a source for you. Awaiting your reply
