What is 9-pin DIN pinout?


A DIN connector is an electrical connector that was originally standardized by the Deutsches Institut f?r Normung (DIN), the German national standards organization. There are DIN standards for a large number of different connectors, therefore the term "DIN connector" alone does not unambiguously identify any particular type of connector unless the document number of the relevant DIN standard is added (e.g., "DIN 41524 connector").

Creative 9 pin male din damaged


The only way to go is Replace the 9 pin adapter. Radio Shack may have the adapter, check them out. You will need to be observant when locating the proper colored wire corresponding with each pin. Two ways to do this and all require a soldering iron. Either split or open the cover on the 9 pin male adapter and expose the wires going to each pin. Identify the colors and pin numbers and draw a diagram on paper to keep for reattaching the wires later on. Cut 1/4 of the insulation back from the end of each wire and tin the wires. In short, hold the solder to the wire ends and heat with the iron so a flow of solder runs along the bare wire. Make certain to put a connector cover onto the wires prior to soldering each wire in place on the pin end. Simply set the correct colored wire end in the proper pin number, hold the iron to the pin back end and allow the wire to affix itself. Do this with all wires. If you do not have 9 wires, that is not unusual, just do the procedure with what wires are available. If you cannot get the outer jacket off of the current 9 pin connecter, then you will need a Volt/Amp meter. Here you simply cut the wire approximately 1/2 to 2/4 Inch back from the cable 9 pin adapter, and locate the pin that corresponds to the colored wire. Using the RESISTANCE part of a meter, when you touch the two probes together the needle moves on the scale. Touch one end to a pin and try each colored wire end until you see the movement on the scale. Now you know what color corresponds with each pin. Solder each colored wire as mentioned above.

Logitech z3 wiring


I have a logitech z3 subwoofer with a mini-DIN-9 connector socket. It also has a volume control and 110V power cord. As best as i could trace the circuit, and using the TDA7377 stereo bridge amplifier chip datasheet, the pinout for the mini-DIN is as follows (untested):
1: L in (to vol.)
2: R in (to vol.)
3: Power (12V from transformer)
4: Standby (5V to play, 0.05mA; 0V to standby)
5: L out
6: R out
7: Ground
8: Ground
9: Ground

Connecting 3 to 4 with a large resistance (~20K ohms) should enable speaker. Pins 1 and 2 might be swapped; pins 5 and 8 might be swapped. Mini-DIN socket pin holes are numbered right to left, bottom row to top row:
9 8 7
6 5 4 3
2 1

Vizio VZ42L. HDTV has stereo speakers connected by what appears to be 5 pin DINS to the television. I would like to use one of the two speakers as my "center" speaker for the surround sound. Is...


Hello

Your Vizio has a 5 pin din connector to take the speaker connection out. There is a 'noch' in the din socket from which count towards left; the first is pin number [1] second is pin number [4]; third is pin number [3]; fourth is pin number [5]; and fifth is pin number [2]. Out of these, pin numbers [2.4&5] has no connections from inside, that is [NC]; not connected. Pin numberes 1&3 are two speaker positve terminals, and the body of the 5pin din pin will act as negative to both channels, that is common.
The company has provided only two channel stereo sound from it to out. There is no provision to get a center speaker out of it. OK.

Zoom 9030 works well after all these years there is a memory battery that needs to be changed every 5 years or so. The only problem is when I plug in the 8050 foot controller it won't change any patches...


It is LIKELY that one or more pins and or wires in the remote cable are broken.

These MINI DIN connectors are "tender" and are easily broken and wires flex at the back of the connector and are broken.

FIRST check that all pins are present at BOTH ENDS of the cable.

NEXT use an ohmmeter to check continuity of each and every pin end-to-end. I suspect you will find one or more broken.

Be aware that repairing this cable requires patience and steady hand as the pins are so close together it is easy to have solder bridges, etc. Sometimes just opening the connectors are a problem to access the pins. Sometimes the cables are MOLDED and those are UNREPAIRABLE other than cutting off the bad conector and replacing it. You can usually buy replacement connectors at DIGIKEY.com and or Mouser.com. You have to CAREFULLY select the apporpriate pin configuration from the catalog page. One needs a small soldering iron and magnifying glass to work on the cable.

USUALLY the wires go from pin to pin. Also a shield on the cable has to be dressed and connected usually. You may find the shell of the connector tied to a pin or just the sheild of the cable.

Need wiring and 9pin connector diagram


Dell (Altec Lansing) A425 Subwoofer Pinouts

This is a standard female DB-9 serial port.
Here are the pinouts.

Pin 1 = Left Speaker Out +

Pin 2 = Left Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 3 = Left Line In +

Pin 4 = Right Line In +

Pin 5 = Left/Right line In - (Common Ground)

Pin 6 = Right Speaker Out +

Pin 7 = Right Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 8 = Power A

Pin 9 = Power B

Jumper (short) Power A to B to turn on.
If you want a volume control you need to put one on the inputs. You will buy buy a stereo volume control or potentiometer.
Here is some info on how to do this.

Looking for a control pod.


I recently had a similar problem. In my case the left speaker had no sound. Finally traced the problem to a broken wire inside the control pod plug, which I destroyed by dissecting it. For those who have the experience, or know someone who does, purchase a new plug, which a Mini DIN 8 pin (RS-422 standard). It should be available at any good electronic parts store. Solder new plug on to cable, which requires a fine electronic soldering iron and a fair bit of skill (the wires are very fine).

Look at the plug (from the rear); you will see it comprises a top row of 3 pins equaly spaced; a middle row of 3 pins (there is room for 4 pins but one pin is missing just left of centre); a bottom row of 2 pins. I numbered these as follows:

8 o 7 o 6 o

5 o 4 o 3 o

2 o 1 o

The wire from the controller comprises 8 coloured cores and a bare core. The wiring of the eight cores are as follows:
DIN CORE PCB
pin 8 - brown 8
pin 7 - red 7
pin 6 - orange 6
pin 5 - yellow 5
pin 4 - green 4
pin 3 - blue 3
pin 2 - white 2
pin 1 - black 9
body clamp - bare wire - G

In case your coloured cores vary from mine I have also listed the pin each one goes to on the printed circuit board plug, which will let you identify the colours.
