Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My Akai model #AA-V405 stereo receiver requires an FM antenna. It will use a single pin plug. The style is common but the diameters of the pin and collar are probably peculiar to this particular model. I have a two pronged radio antenna making contact to the pin hole and get fair reception but the tenuous arrangement easily jars loose. If you can put me on to someone selling the original part or can identify the plug as generic so that I might inquire at a Radio Shack, then that will be greatly appreciated. If your terms of use policy suggests anything other than a free and otherwise non-binding service, then disregard this inquiry. Steve

SOURCE: WHY CAN'T I GET AM RADIO RECEPTION - ONLY FM??

You need a seperate AM antena for your AM radio to work. If you look on the back of the system where the FM antenna is connected you will see a AM hole for an antenna. I had same problem hope it helps!

SOURCE: poor AM car stereo reception with new DP AudioVideo player

AM.... what the heck is AM??? LOL

Check the antenna connection behind the radio to be sure it is taped and not touching ground. Also the antenna & cable running to it for worn spots in the shielding, or corrosion.

I think (based on knowing how manufacturers do things at times) that their is a very cheap universal chip type tuning system in play here on the order of about 10 cents value that many manufactures are probablly incorporating these days. What I did to solve this annoyance was to purchase (after many tests) a SHARP brand walkman type AM/FM hand unit that has really good AM and jack it into the preamp section before my crossover (added an extra input via Y-adapters) and use Ni-metal-hi batteries that can be recharged. I get about a week out of the 2 AA cells. I also had to build a rather good cable (shielded) to go from the unit to the 1/8 jack to cut noise a notch more. This has proven a good situation for me.

With this knowledge, I wonder what head units actually have good rejection circuitry and great gathering power for amplitude modulation?

SOURCE: Loss of reception in 2002 ford focus factory radio fm

Common fault but as others have suggested, check aerial plug. It does fall out, speed humps vibration,cause it to come out of it's socket.If not this, try a seperate aerial such as a piece of wire or a small screw driver blade in the hole. Press search and see if radio finds a station and locks on.If it does then you know you have an aerial problem and your radio unit is ok. Sadly, if no luck and no result then the only answer is to relpace the unit as it is not servicable.These can be found at some car breakers but take your car and make sure that you buy a tried and tested unit with its pin No. Typical costs are £30 with casette and £70 for cd player.

However because there are so many different types of socket and plug arrangments on these units and they all look alike , don't be tempted to part with any cash until you have got the correct one that fits your car and it works. If does and you have its pin, it will have to be entered to make it work and you have made a written note of it in your Ford hand book , then pay the man. Good luck From been there and have the tee shirt. J.R. Note. Halfords do a fitted alternative replacement for around £150 if no luck and you are prepared to spend that kund of money.

How do I get an antenna for the FM connection?


You can use an old rabbit ears style antenna or go to a radio shack and get a flat ribbon style. If you're close to the radio stations a single section of wire about 2 feet long connected to one of the antenna screws will work too.

Our turntable is not producing any sound even though we have changed the speakers


Be sure the audio-out leads are connected properly to the receiver. They usually will work ok connected to the aux. plugs. Be sure the selector on the front of receiver is set to aux as well. Check the cartridge output wires to insure they are connected to the cartridge ok. If you have the receiver powered up and have the proper settings on the front of the receiver, you should get a little static sound when plugging the audio output leads into their respective input jacks on the receiver.

Fm aerial connection ?


Both of my Marantz receivers use a 75 ohm coax input. The receivers included a single wire antenna that simply plugs in. The plug is suitable for coax cable going to an external antenna. You can also get a small 75 to 300 ohm transformer that will allow you to use a dipole or other common indoor FM antenna.

The 75 ohm type use plugs and cables commonly used for TV aerials and Satellite dishes.
The 300 ohm type uses screw clip terminals where you attach a coloured cable.
All shown here: The FM socket with the thread on, uses a Satellite connector plug.

Aai have the following AKAI Audio Stereo System and no Idea how to connect them. Please help Akai Model AP-D210 turntable Akai model CS-F14 Stereo cassette deck Akai model AT-K110 Fm Am Tuner Akai...


In general, outs to ins.

If nothing else, get the manuals for the preamp and the EQ. You'll probably have to pay for them.

Google it.

Akai PR-A04 preamplifier << This is the control center and where everything comes together.

Akai AP-D210 turntable (ONLY to jacks that say "PHONO"
Akai EA-G40 Stereo Graphic Equalizer (in the Tape 1 Out/In set)
Akai CS-F14 Stereo cassette deck (in the Tape Out/In set of the EQUALIZER) *
Akai AT-K110 Fm Am Tuner (to the Tuner inputs)
Akai DT-100 Audio Tuner (to the Aux inputs)
Akai PA-W04 Amplfier (to the amp outputs)

* This will allow you to Equalize the Tape on the Record or the Playback side.

Read some audio magazines or websites. Get to understand Tape Monitor Loops.

Don't use excessive EQ.

Akai Stereo Tuner Amplifier(AA-1125).with faulty tuner


It could be that IC's that control the AM/FM radio have failed and need replacing. On the circuit diagram it has two numbered LA1240 and LA1230. Though it's unlikely both would fail at the same time. Unless you were not using the AM radio and that failed first and then the FM one went. However there is a 7 pin device which is called the Front End. This is located connected to the tuning gang. The metal thing with flanges that in-twine. Both the AM and FM aerial leads go into this before reaching the IC's. It contains a FET and some transistors. It has 12 volts on pin 4. And there is a 300ohm output on pin 3, where both FM and AM signals come out. So you can check that out. If it's not showing 12 volts on that pin there is something wrong or the 300 ohms on 3.
You could at one time get a replacement Front End, but after all this time it's unlikely they are still made. But with a lot of work it should be possible to get inside the Front End and replace the faulty parts.
The service manual is free and online. Just type the model number and service manual into google and you will see the free PDF of it. Parts numbers for the Front End are mentioned, just in case somebody still stocks it!

How to connect fm wire to recive fm signal


most after market stereos require an adapter to go from the large factory style plugs to the smaller plug for the stereo. Best Buy or any electronics store should have these. I think even Wal-Mart sells them. Hope this helps :)
