Ext in problem

if you are using the ext in then it has to be something wrong with the setup from the pc. The receiver does nothing to the ext in input except amplify it and put it out to the speakers.

No sound at all when headphones are plugged in

Hi, I apologize in advance for not offering a solution. Have just trolled through the handbook (on-line) for anything that might offer a clue. It takes both high and low impedance units so that's cool. They say to use the phones to assist with speaker issues and there's nothing to suggest that any of the settings affect them. Depending on the impedance the volume levels can change a fair bit so I guess you've cranked it up to check. The fact that they turn off the speakers doesn't add a lot, it can often be a simple mechanical switch in the socket when the plug is inserted. Does the 'speaker off' indicator come on when you plug them in. The only other things I'd suggest is both try another set of phones regardless and the other is reset all the sound settings to factory and see if that has any affect. Else you likely have an issue with the phone interface circuitry.

Hi , is it possible to add an extra 2 speakers to my hifi even though there are only enough terminals to hold the 2 that was with it ???? also the run of cable nedded for the added 2 speakers will be...


Yes you can add two additional speakers, by adding a splitter off each terminal, which will take each terminal hole to two. However there is a couple problems you might discover. Power output will weaken because each channel is designed for so much amp output. So, by adding two additional speakers off those channels demands more power. Now, if your not going to crank them high and have a block party you will be ok. You can get the splitter that goes in to each port and splits and places like Guitar center, maybe radio shack, best buy, and even check walmart.They make also little devices that are a little unit that actually is separate, that hook up like this. Two small coax lines about 6 inches long come out your receiver and plug into this little splitter that has four ports, then you can run all four of your lines to the four speakers, and this device has panning and some other little features to make one speaker louder than the other like a fader. I hope this helps. Again Guitar center is best to check first.

The left speaker or controlling speaker has no ... very little sound.. the right one is working. I have them hooked up to a computer with the earphone jack which splits into right and left jacks.

Right click on your volume icon at the taskbar, & open your volume control. Check if the Master Volume - "balance" is at the center!!

Check your speaker connecting cables are securely plug in.

Hope it helps.

Can I use 6 ohm speakers on my 8 ohm aiwa av-x300?

You can use 6Ohms speaker in place of an 8Ohms speaker. No damage will occur to the set, but the quality of sound output will be a little bit less and the output will be a little bit high. OK.

I have got a Technics SA-AX540 Receiver and (Among other things) a pair of Jamo speakers conected to the receiver. a little whil ago it strated to "act up" in such manor that sound now comme out...

If it acts that way with all sources I would suspect a bad switch contact somewhere in the signal path. Typically, it might be a switch you rarely use, like a Tape Monitor or Mute. It's wise to occasionally (with power OFF) manipulate all manual controls throughput their ranges a number of times to wipe oxides from their contacts.

No sound, Tried unplugging system for several days no help. Checked all wiring to speakers, looks ok. made sure speaker switch in correct position.

if you have a sound card you might need to reinstall the driver. if you dont have one double check the sound settings on the computer. maybe the speakers are not active

Record from turntable to computer via Pioneer SX-737 Receiver

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Pls be informed that the model was not displayed, only the brand Pioneer.

Nonetheless and assuming that the turntable is built-in into the receiver, locate the REC out or LINE out at the rear of the receiver. Plug the RCA of the cable there while the 1/8 plugs into the AUX/LINE IN of the computer. Select PHONO in the receiver, in the computer, double click-on the speaker icon in the System Tray (clock). The speaker control window will open:
  • click on Options;
  • click on Properties;
  • tick/click Recording;
  • check Line in and/or Aux;
  • press on OK button;
  • adjust Aux/Line in setting to desired level.
It is of course necessary to likewise be running a recording program.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System

Hi, Based on your post/description, the Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System is a basic external speaker that plugs into your PC's speaker/headset output (green jack). It is supposed to get its power from the +5VDC supplied by the USB port. Some USB port have current limiting therefore it can be anywhere from 10 - 500 mA. The power requirement of your external Durabrand speaker maybe beyond what the PC's USB ports can supply. It does not need to be recognized by the OS since it only connects to the USB to get power but there is no data interaction. Perhaps what you can do is get an external +5VDC power supply whose output is in USB type connector. The current rating would depend on the requirement of your speaker. Offhand, if the speakers are not that big, probably a 1 Amp would do. This is of course assuming that the Durabrand speaker system is fully functional. If with an external power supply it is still a no go and you have verified that sound do come out of your green jack (with the use of an ordinary headset), then the Durabrand is defective. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Echo when playing surround sound

You want to adjust the "DELAY" setting on the receiver. The standard (default) delay setting is 20mS, which may need to be shortened if your speakers are well behind your listening position. In a proper setup, you should not detect a significant echo effect in surround programming (unless it is a purposely "echoey" scene). Also, make sure you don't have any of the "enhanced" DSP modes engaged -- some of these are quite echoey. if it has speaker set up, there should be a setting for distance. You might have it set close, so that by the time you hear the fronts, the rears should go. Try setting it farther each time until it sounds right. good luck
