Hi! I have a Sansui A E-770 with the complete set-up. I cannot play the cd player and tape deck because it needs the ribbon cable. What do you call it exactly and where can I purchase? Thanks!

It is too bad that you need this cable as they are custom made cables for that unit set. If you do enough research you might find one ready made at DigiKey or some place like that. The problem is that this kind of stuff requires you to keep track of these special cables. Worse comes to worse you could yourself or a Technician wire in a dB9 connector and then be able to make your own cable. This might cost more than the whole set is worth to have a Technician do it but it is one possibility. You could also wire in a molex connector with that many given conductors but that would require getting into the two units to do which takes knowledge and labor. It can be done though.

    Guess I will have to look for a replacement because I don't know anything about electronics but THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the suggestion. So what is it called? A ribbon cable?

    Yes, it is a ribbon cable of a type. The conductors most likely translate directly as the other stuff does. I could put the unit together for you if you were in the Chicago area. I have connectors in hand that I could use. It is too bad they made these things like this as then it is possible to lose the cables and then have missing sections. If a cable that goes to another part has the same conductors it might work for the missing part- then you would just have to duplicate it. The connector part is the hardest thing to find.

    Argh, I am far away from you. But thank you very much for all the help! Will have to ask around my area if they have these. Thanks!

First try cleaning the heads with some electronics grade alcohol and a static free cleaning swab...although it sounds like the head may need alignment...if those two things do not work out for you, the capstan motor might be the culprit.

SOURCE: I have a Yamaha KXW302U audio tape player. And when I play a tape on the A deck, after one second, it stops.

The auto stop function is activating due to lack of reel rotation on the TU reel and so you may need a reel drive Idler tire or a new belt.

JVC TD_309. How do I set it up to record from DVD player?


Just one question. Why would you want to downgrade your sound by going from digital to analog tape complete with it's own hiss? I assume that you are using the dvd player to play your cd's.

anyways.............since one of your units is digital and one not, get 2 red and white composite audio cables. Use one red & white cable and go from the "output" of the audio of the dvd to the "in" of your tape deck. The other set of cables will go to the "out" of your tapedeck and will go to any tape or cd or aux in the back of your amp. Make sure the device selection button on the amp matches whatever slot you put the cables into on the back of the amp. Start a cd and put a casette in the tapedeck. Push record to see that the sound is coming through.

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. :)

How do I connect my CD Player, Tape Deck and Tuner to the SU 300 Technics Amplifier


hi,
For connecting these to your amplifier you need 4 Stereo RCA Cable.
1.Connection for cd:
Take one of the RCA cable connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line out of your cd and connect the other end (red/white) to the CD input of Your amplifier.
2. Connecting the tunner:
Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line output of you Tuner and connect the other end (red/white) to the TUNER input of your amplifier.
3. Connectiong the tape deck:
Now you have two RCA cable. Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jacks to the PLAY out of the Tape deck and connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 play input of your amplifier.
Now connect the last RCA cable. Connect the one end (red/white) jack to the record input of the TAPE deck And connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 Record input of your amplifier.(this connection will help you to record to tape from cd or tuner. if you are not interested in recording then you can avoid this connection.)

Now you can select these three items from the frond plannel control switch of the amplifier.
ok

Hi Taff,
I had this problem too. In the end I opened up the box ( a real nightmare) found a "computer ribbon" style wire between the tape bits and the amp bits and disconnected it. I can't use the tape anymore, but it doesn't make any noise either. Like you (in your solution) I hate the way it switches to the radio when a record finishes. I have a CD player connected to the aux play jacks - when the aux button is pushed in, the radio is disconnected and when the CD finishes, you get silence not radio.

Hello, I have found a Sansui DA-T550 music-system with AM/FM stereo tuner, integrated amplifier, cassette deck and turnable/gramophone (placed separated). It seems like the system is working OK. My...


Hi!

I have the same deck. Did it come with rammophone or are you using your own grammophone?
I have it with original grammophone and I don't need a remote control, I don't even have it. You just turn on your grammophone and it is automatic, just place the needle on record and it should switch and play automatically. That is if you have connected the wires right (two wires for sound, one for automation, all in the same area).

If you have separate grammophone, I am assuming you just need to place two wires into the separate phono channels and it should work. There is just no automatic detection, so you have to swithc to mono manually: There is a button on the right, beside Volume control "tape to CD" or something.

To play the tape, just simply push the play button on the bottom, should work, or you could try tape to cd button off and see if it detects automatically when tape is inserted.


Currently I have it taken apart and there is tape detection system apparent. Its quite automated reciever, which sucks, because all kinds of problems appear and it is difficult to fix.

On my Sansui, the tape player starts winding slowly when pressed play button. And the tape motor seems to be on always, even when the tape is not used, and the motor is really loud. --Need to find a solution to this problem. And I hate it switch to radio/FM every time the record stops. Plus the original grammophone doesn't work correctly, it is supposed to take off the needle when record reaches an end, but it just pushes the neelde to the holder... over the record..... "screeeeech".

Reorded tapes only play out one speaker


check your cables to the units channel that doesn't work, for breaks. Does the cassette player play back a pre-recorded tape okay? if it doesn't there might be a internal fault.
Check the wires to the tape head to see if one is off.

Yamaha Natural Sound Amp and Tape Player


All of this applies to nearly any analog consumer audio gear...

If you have any Tape Deck and an Equalizer and only the one Tape Monitor loop you should place the EQ into that Tape Monitor loop, then place the Tape Deck onto one of the probable two Tape Monitors on the EQ as it sounds like you had here...

"When I had it set up with the graphic equaliser,pressing tape monitor on the amp and on the equaliser gave me play backfrom the tape player."
That setup will allow you to apply EQ to any analog source and the tape deck in record or playback mode.

However, if you want to remove the EQ and use the Tape Deck directly on the Tape Monitor just attach the deck's Playback cables to Tape Mon In (Play) and the deck's Record cables to the Tape Mon Out (Rec). Flip the Tape Mon control to hear the tape deck or monitor it while recording.

----

NEVER plug anything but a turntable into the Phono. It has a preamp that expects a ver ysmall signal from the cartridge AND it also has a severe RIAA Equalization curve which would result in grossly exaggerated frequency extremes if you managedto get a non-LP source into it. Likewise, turntables without internal electronics mut always use the Phono section of a receiver, preamp or integrated amp to get the boost and EQ they need.

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.

Sherwood 460 equalizer hook up


Connect the EQ to the Sherwood as if it were a tape deck: EQ's outs connect to receiver's tape ins (play) and EQ's ins connect to receiver's tape outs (record).
Then you hook the tape deck up to the tape ins and outs on the EQ: Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and tape deck ins connect to EQ's tape outs (record).
This will put the EQ in your receiver's tape loop.
The CD player should be connected to the receiver though the CD in's and out's (or if your Sherwood doesn't have a CD in/out, then use AUX or TAPE2).
To hear the EQed signal with all receiver sources (like the CD player) you'll need to engage the 'Tape Monitor' button or switch which will route the tape loop to the speakers.
