I have the same problem with the mic on another model just the other way around; my microphone only works under the "CD/DVD" and "USB" function but NOT under the "audio in", "optical in", or "bluetooth audio in" function which frustrates me as I prefer singing along to sounds from my laptop rather than CD/DVD/USB stick (which would limit my choice of songs). My manual does say that to use the karaoke function one should follow the steps for playing media from CD/DVD/USB (limiting the choice of songs for myself) suggesting that the function I want is disabled by factory setting. I've sent a query to Sony but hasn't received response, so before I get an answer this "inability" could probably be, but hopefully not, by factory setting. I suggest you send a query to Sony to, perhaps they respond.

I accidently put the rca wires in the wrong audio input/output on my craig cd graphics karaoke player.Could this be why i have no sound?


The RCA outs are designed to send a signal to an external amplifier. That amplifier, in turn, sends the music signal to speakers.
The RCA inputs are designed to take audio signals from another device (like an ipod, CD Player, or computer) and play it through the Craig System speakers. If you sing into the microphone, the vocals will be mixed with the incoming music. However, in these cases, there won't be lyrics on the screen. If you play a karaoke DVD in a DVD player, connect the red, white and yellow RCA cables from the DVD out to the Craig Inputs, the lyrics should appear on the Craig screen while the music plays.
If you mistakenly plug RCA cables into the Craig Inputs and plug the other end into an amplifier's inputs, neither will produce any sound.
Using RCA outs is only necessary if you want to have louder music than the on-board Craig speakers can handle. Of course, you can run the yellow video cable to a TV RCA input to get a bigger lyrics window and the RED and White RCA to the TV RCA Red and White inputs to hear the music through the TV's speakers.

Set up, volume, and manual issues


I got my EAKAR100 for $5 at a second hand/thrift store. Kind of expected it would just work or not. 'Nuf said. But after having no luck with the set-up, I took a long second look. Here's what I discovered:
The manual is VERY minimal... if you don't have one, don't waste much time looking for one.
What I did wrong: The microphone has one wire that splits into TWO leads, each having 3 RCA plugs (Video & L/R Audio plugs... also a 3rd "pigtail" lead that is for an optional extra microphone for duets). Although the two main leads were clearly labeled, I had put the one for the TV input socket, into the DVD output (and of course the other lead was plugged in wrong, too). Oddly enough, this DID produce music AND lyrics from the DVD player; but I had no sound from me, singing into the mic. My excuse for this obvious error is the manual had a diagram for installation that showed the SHORTER of the two leads going to the TV. It doesn't. Luckily mine had blue tape labels on the leads. I switched them and though I continued to get music and lyrics, alas: still no microphone. (I tried new battery, and yes, the red "power" light lit up on the mic.)
Up until now, the music had been playing at a reasonable volume, but I then tried my mic w/o the music plugged in. As I began talking ever louder into the mic, I thought I could hear it on the TV, so I cranked up the TV volume from 11, up to 26; and suddenly the mic was delivering my vocals out the TV speakers. I would not have learned this w/o unpluging the DVD, because if I hadn't, I would never have cranked up the TV volume high enough to hear the mic.
The microphone's own volume control was minimal (almost imperceptible; low to high), but there were clearly 3 functional reverb-settings, controlled by the other button on the mic.
I re-attached the plugs at the DVD player and selected a tune. I had music, lyrics, and my voice, with some distortion depending on my volume, and the TV's, and distance from my mouth to the mic, but it was manageable.
However! the balance between the volume of my mic, and the music from the DVD was such that I was being drowned out by the music. I could find (via manual, online Electrohome website, my little brain's theories) NO way to adjust the BALANCE between these two sound sources.
As for the DVD menu, and song selection: The music arrangements are awful. VERY disco-style, even for the Christmas Carols!! The kids songs are bad too, but not as tacky. My DVD player is old, and teeny (the TV by the way, is a pretty new Vizio VL320L), and the DVD remote is very obscure in its button assignments and descriptions --- even with DVD movies. But maybe the Karaoke disc is awkward in itself, too. So, getting from the menu, to a particular song was haphazard at best. What worked best was pressing "Go To" on my DVD remote. That produced a header that read: "01/30 ... 1/1", which turned out to mean "song #1 of 30 songs; [and] folder #1 or 1 folders". By highlighting the song number field, using the left/right arrow buttons, and then entering a number "24/30" for example, and then pressing "OK" , the song would start up. My DVD's "pause" button worked, but many other buttons did nothing except cause a hand-icon (like the hand in a crosswalk light) to show I should "stop".
Sorry to be so long winded, but I don't know what small comment might be of help to any of you. I, myself, was groping through the dark all the way. Good luck.

I hook up the microphone and no voice sound comes out what should I do


Where did you plug the Mic ?. Most receivers do not have Mic input. Only some DVD players with karaoke have a MIc input in front. The phones socket in front of the Receiver is meant for headphones.

Hi, i would like to know if it is possible to plug in a microphone to a samsung home theather.


Model unknown? Probably not unless it has a MIC input somewhere. Or your microphone has an amplifierthat raises it to Line Level so it could coenct to any analog audio input EXCEPT PHONO.

Karaoke not working


Hi, got this info from philips customer service. Was desperately trying to get the karaoke function to work for 2 weeks! Plug in your microphone. Press "KARAOKE" button until you see "MIC OFF" text, and immediately press RIGHT button. It will now shows "MIC ON"! "ECHO", "KEY" options will now shows up when pressing "KARAOKE" button repeatedly. However, microphone sound will not be available on digital output, you'll have to use the audio RCA. Happy singing!

2-second delay with Magic Sing


i bought et18k. just the same as yours.its 2 days old and has the same problem. the technical assistant says that its because of the digital setting that new tvs have. there are two ways to solve this though:

1. connect the video (yellow plug) to the tv. and the other two plugs (yellow and white) to the stereo. when i say stereo, its not the dvd home theater system that you have but a separate one. if you connect it to the home theater that you have, it'll just sound the same, you still have the delay.

2. connect the magic sing to the older tvs hangin out. and you'll get no problem at all.

**TVs such as sony, samsung, philips, sharp and all plasma tvs including other newly designed tvs will have the delay since they all share the HDMI thingy that causes sh*t.

My marantz DV 9500 doesnt output digital signal for audio cd anymore but outputs audio for dvd,sacd,dvd audio. Does it need servicing


Make sure your playing componet like CD player have a digital output socket. Connect this to a digital port on the amp witk a single RCA or Optical cable if output available on CD. Make sure the digital assingment in amp is set for cd function and corresponding input(example cd plyer connected on dig 4 input on amp, press menu, setup, assignment, go to cd player, make sure setting on dig 4 or change input to dig 4, go to next component to memorise setting.and exit, see manual to assist you) if still no sound take dvd cable for instance that is working and put that in dig 4 port. if that works check in cd player that settings spdif/raw/pcm is correct one for yor digital output if still no sound soun pc board faulty.

How to hook up protron pds-2315


First of all, the PDS-2315 is not a DVR (this question is incorrectly categorized), it is a home theater system. Also, this system is not a receiver -- it is a DVD player (DVD/CD/HDCD/CD-R/CD-RW/Kodak PCD Playback) with a "full function" Karaoke feature with two microphone inputs. If you haven't figured out how to set it up in the past 11 months, this is how you do it.

1. Connect the supplied RCA cables (labled FR, FL, SR, SL, Cen, and SW) to the corresponding RCA connections in the back of the DVD player and the back of the Sub-Woofer.

2. Connect the DVD Player to your television.

A. Video:

There are several options here depending on your available Television inputs: Coax Cable, Component (yellow jack), S-Video and Composite (composite providing the best video resolution and coax the poorest). HDMI is not available. Use s-video or composite if you can. You will note that the composite RCA jacks are colored Orange, Blue, and Green. In a pinch, any RCA Cables will work - just don't cross the color codes between the DVD Player and the television. If you need to use coax you will need a coax to RCA adapter. If your television only has a component jack (yellow), it's a simple connection between the two.

B. Audio:

On the back of the DVD player you'll find two RCA jacks labled "Main R" and "Main L". These will be connected to your Audio Out connections on the back of your television. If you don't have Audio Out RCA jacks on the back of your television, but have an earphone jack, you can purchase an RCA adaptor to make that connection. With rear audio out jacks, you should have an option in your television's audio setup menu to select those outputs. (DO NOT CONFUSE "AUDIO OUT" WITH "AUDIO INPUT" because the will look identical.) If you don't have either of these connections, you will not be able to use the system to listen to television signals.

3. Connect the speakers. Each of the speakers is labled with their position (FR, FL, CEN, SR, SL). The speaker wires are color coded to the spring connectors in the rear of the sub-woofer/amplifier. Press the spring lever and place the wire into the opening. For proper biasing, place the color coded wire into the colored spring connector and the other wire into the black connector for the specified speaker. Connecting the speakers should be very easy. If the ends of the speaker wires become damaged, simply strip the wires back half an inch and connect as above. Place the speakers as specified by their position lables (FL, CEN, FR in front of the television and SL and SR to the right and left of the seating.)

4. Plug it in and power on. You'll need to plug in both the DVD player and the sub-woofer. Press the power button, hit the open/close button on either the DVD player or the remote control and put a disc in the machine. If you don't have a picture or a "Protron" title screen, hit the "P-SCAN" button on the remote (top left corner below the "STANDBY" button).

5. Hit the "SETUP" key and enter your system's information and you're done. Your system will work just like any other DVD player with theatre quality sound. --With the added feature of functioning as a Karaoke machine! Just add proper Karaoke CDs, a couple microphones, a bunch of friends and copius amounts of alcohol . . .

No sound from rsq e500n


S-VIDEO only carries the video signal and NOT the sounds.

You would also need to hook up the audio leads (red nd white phono) also for it to fully work.
