Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

Restoring the power connection to an amplifier.

I recently accidentally severed the power cable to my amp. I reconnected the cut ends, but, when I plugged in to the power source and switched on with the CD player powered up, the Denon did not power up. I then connected the short length of cable to the Denon remaining. This, too, did not work. Do you have a solution?

Can the power cord be unplugged from the back of the amp? If it can, you can probably find a replacement cord on the internet. You may even be able to get one from the manufacturer.

If you are just twisting the wires together or using wire nuts, you need to unplug the unit at once and get it repaired properly! Exposed 120 volt connections are very dangerous! A person or a pet may get the shock of their lives, or you might start a fire!

Why not just take the unit to an electrical repair shop , and have them fix it? It won't cost that much. Sometimes it is time to put down the duct tape and bubble gum, and let the pros handle it!

The simply answer to this is that one or more of the connections is not making a circuit. You need to test the connections and have another go at getting them all securely connected. It seems unlikely that you will have caused a fault to develop, unless the power was on when you first damaged the cables!

If you are concerned about humidity and switches, spray them with DeOxit. You can get it at Radio Shack.

I accidentally deleted connection when trying to get rid of a Built up printing queue! Having done anything manually, only on screen! Help please

Turn off the printer first. Try unplugging the cable between your computer and your printer and re-plugging it back in. Then turn on your printer and hopefully it will allow you to add the printers operating software which is known as a print driver. Good luck !

How can i set up the amp alpine model mrd-m1000

The basic steps to set up a car amplifier are these: 1. Disconnect the car battery's negative terminal before doing ANY electrical work on your vehicle. Failing to do so can damage your equipment or cause injury to your person. 2. Determine where you are going to mount your amplifier. This can be in the trunk, on the back of a seat, under a seat, etc. Pick a place with good airflow, otherwise your amp may overheat while playing. 3. Run the ground wire from the mount location to a ground location. The ground location should be a location where you can securely connect the cable to the vehicle chassis, and the connection should be metal-to-metal, without any paint in between. 4. Run the speaker cables to the amp. This means any cables coming directly from subwoofers as well as RCA cables coming from the head unit. Don't forget the remote wire from the head unit. 5. Run the positive (live) power wire directly from the vehicle battery to the amp. You will most likely have to drill through the vehicle firewall in order to get the cable through. 6. Connect the ground wire to the ground location. 7. Connect the speaker wires and remote wire to the amp. Make sure these cables are connected on each end to the proper inputs. 8. Connect the ground wire to the amp. 9. Insert the fuse into the in-line fuse on the live power cable, within 2 feet (24 inches) of the positive terminal connection.If your cable didn't come with an in-line fuse, you will have to buy a fuse separately, strip the power cable, cut it, and insert the fuse in the specified location. 10. Connect the power wire to the amp first, and then to the battery. 11. Power up your system, and play some music!

My car subwoofers go IN and OUT frequently as of recently. wires APPEAR to be connected. Are they blown?

The cables from the amp to the speakers could be shorting out, the speaker(s) could be shorting or going bad. The impedance of the speakers could be to low for the amplifier. The amp could be overheating because of any of the above. Turn the power off and try disconnecting one speaker, make sure no bare wires are touching. Reapply the power and observe. If it still does it , reconnect the speaker and preform same test to the other channel. The previous test can determine the side that has the problem. If the problem is still present the speakers and cables need to be checked with an ohm meter. If the cables and speakers check out then the amp speaker outputs need to be checked to see if there is any DC voltage present. If DC voltage is present on the outputs then the amp output section needs to be repaired.

Blowing both amp fuses

Then you must have a short somewhere , either your main power cable has a pinch or short somewhere , it is not correctly installed , your blue or amp turn on wire has a short, the vehicles battery has problems or a charging problem from the cars alternator. Try all of a cheap test light at an Autozone or Pepboys put the grounding clip to a 12+ Volts source and put the test light tip to the red power cable that powers up the amp, if the test light bulb turns on then you have a short somewhere and you would have to trace the cable from battery connection to the amp connection for any accidental grounding or pinch wire.

Good luck.

Good luck.

Clipping amp

hi first disconnect all spks, then turn on the amp. if amp power lite stays on bright then proceed to connect one speaker or sub to the amp. if the amp lite dims during any spk connections then it may be that the spk is faulty or there is a DC voltage (dc offset) emitting thru that particular channel. also check all spk impedance before reconnecting them to the amp. cheers.

No sound through my AMC 3050A

Strange problem. If you have moved the equipment carefully, reconnected all cables and inputs properly in the right sockets and terminals, i don't see any reason why the amplifioer should not work. And if Power is Ok, Amp should work. Pls recheck all connections properly once again.
