Question about Sony CMT-HP7 CD Shelf System

2 Answers

MD hook up

I hooked up an old record player to my system, and to hear it at all I had to turn the volume up all the way. It's pretty quiet even though it's on max volume. Any ideas on what may be wrong?

Re: MD hook up

Chances are that the rocord player is not compatable with the Sony system, it may be that the stylus cartridge is ceramic instead of magnetic or visa versa

Volume Problems

If the mute funcction is ON, it will effect for all inputs. Here the problem is not with the mute function. It must be with the system control section itself. You must have thorough knoledge in electronics to go further. OK.

there is probably an internal fault but check that the pre out main in links are both there and the sockets to them are properly soldered.

Stereo problems

I would have to say that both of these sound as though they are probably beyond economical repair.

With the first unit you mention, either the panel with the switches on needs replacing or the logic (the brain inside) is on it's way out.

On the other system, either the lenses need cleaning or the lasers are on the way out for both MD & CD. You can try cleaning the lenses first, it might help.

What I would very much recommend in the future is to get a system made of seperates. Then, if one source goes down, you're not left with no music while it's being serviced. If you go to Richer Sounds they'll give you a part-exchange allowance for your old hi-fi(s) and if you buy the warranty & never use it they will give you 100% of your money back. Every one's a winner!

IPod connection

Yes there is. You need to purchase a 1/8 inch jack (standard headphone input) to RCA (red and white) cord, they usually run approx. $20 - $25). Once you have that what you'll need to do is plug the RCA cord into the back of the stereo (corresponding colors, red into the red, white into the white) and set the function to Game (MD). You can do this by pressing the button on your remote or by pressing the function button on the main consul until you see MD on the monitor, press play on your ipod and you're good to go!

For My Sony CMT-HPX9 [mp3]

Plug the cord into the headphones/mp3 port on the front and press function until the MD option pops up. It should work then.

Record player works but no sound from speakers

I've had this happen before, and it is caused by your ground wire not being hooked up. Depending on the type and age of turntable, it will have an additional wire (the ground), that needs to be hooked up to either a screw or some sort of opening similar to your speaker wire hookup. That should take care of the problem. If you don't have a ground wire coming out of your turntable, I don't know how to help, other than figure out how to ground the turntable.

Volume with Headphones

The unit probably has resistors or a limitor curcuit to limit the amount of audiop going out on the headphones. It could probably be modifyed but it would possiblt burn out the headphones as this is a 280watt peak power unit . Its there so you dont blow out your could use some wireless self powered headphones as that would solve your problem!! Good Luck
