Rest of plug stuck in receiver

I had a freak accident happen where an object fell near the back of my stereo receiver hitting the male adapter that connects the sub-woofer to the receiver. There is a good piece of the adapter still inside the connection. Is there anyway I can get it out or should I just take it to a electronics shop? LH

How do i hook up auxillary chord to a denon avr-884

There are several "line" inputs that should will need an adapter to go from 3/5mm [1/8" phone] to RCA Stereo. This can be a cable with Male 3.5 mm stereo on one end and two RCA male on the other, or a 3.5 M-M cable plus a 3.5 female to RCA male adapter. or a stereo M-M RCA cable with RCA F to 3.5 Male...
If you have easy access to the back panel, plug into and use the CD/Tape [IN]. Or you can simply plug the RCAs into the front L and R audio and use that input sans video.

I have an old Denon stereo receiver DRA - 565 RD. Do you know how I can connect my iPhone to the receiver to play music from my iPhone?

You need a 3,5mm male stereo connector to RCA male jacks (see attached image). Plug the 3.5mm jack to your iPhone and the RCA jacks (red & white or red & black) to your Denon Receiver's CD in or Tape 1 or 2 PB (at the rear of the unit). Then select the input where you plugged the RCA to (front of receiver: CD / Tape-2 / Tape-1). Hope this will help. 25303676-z0ul41frrnrex4ege2epffps-1-0.jpg

Bose Wave Radio/Kindle Fire

Yes, all you need is a standard audio adapter cable that plugs into the earbud jack on the kindle and into the "variable in" jacks on the back of the Bose. (male stereo 1/8" plug to a pair of male RCA/phono plugs).

Some weeks ago the sub stopped working. Thought dog had chewed the coaxial driver cable, but not shorted (now). Tried another sub w/o success.

Hi, I went to the Denon website and they have no documentation there for your receiver.
But do not frown, I have some good suggestions for you.
0 Don't beat the dog. After all, it's their job to chew things.
1 Get a new, un-chewed cable and see what happens between the sub output and the sub woofer. If it works, your in business. If it does not work. Don't be discouraged . Go to step #2
2 If the sub output on the Denon has failed, and everything else is good. There is another way to use your sub.
Install a patch system using the Headphone output from the front of the Denon. It may seem odd, but it works exceptionally well for the following reasons. It works on all signal sources. So if you are not playing a home theater source, you still have the use of your sub.
You will need the following adapters.
1 A Male stereo phone jack to female mini-phone jack. (Something that would accept typical small headphone sets such as those on an iphone).
2 A stereo "Y" connector that that has a single stereo male mini-phone jack that has two "RCA" female jacks.
3 A simple RCA male to male stereo cable pair as is commonly used to connect CD players, etc. i.e. separate red and white RCA connectors at both ends.
1 and 2 above may be available as a single unit combined with each other.
Take these adapters and connect the Item 1 into the Receiver, Item 2 plugged into Item 1, Item 3 plugged into Item 2 and finally the other end of Item 3 plugged into the two female RCA jacks mounted onto the back of the sub-woofer. If the sub only has one female RCA connector, get a RCA "Y" connector that has a single male end to 2 female ends.
This setup will work perfectly with any sub. The reason is as follows. Most decent subs have an adjustable high frequency cut off. So you can vary it from about 20Hz up to about 140 Hz.
I recommend that it is cut off at 80 hz. This way the bass transition is usually seamless between the woofer and the rest of the system. .
Then adjust the woofer volume control in a similar manner.
If it all works out, give the dog a treat and enjoy yourself.
I really hope this helps, I love my sub woofer as well.
Let me know how this turns out.
If you have any questions please post them on the site and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Best Regards,

I have Radioshack wireless headphones with a 30 foot range. I cannot hook them up to my new Panasonic Viera 42 inch HD T.V. - The "audio outlet" is a square and the headphones only have red and...

hi there.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector.  It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT.  Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections.  The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.

The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket.  a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head.  It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.


In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks. 


If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.

If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.


With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".


I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.




You will either need this :


or this :




Sometimes the colours of connectors vary.  Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side)  and White to White or Black To White  or Black To Black (for left)

Can i use my mp3 player with a fisher rs 727 receiver/amp

Yes, just connect a male mini-plug/2 RCA male plug adapter into the mp3 player and connect the male RCA plugs to the AUX IN on the back of the receiver. It may take several pieces to "build" the adapter, e.g. often you'll find a male mini-plug/2 female RCA adapter, so then you'd need an RCA "patch" cable with males at both ends to complete the link.

How do I connect pc to htr-5850

You will need an adapter cable available on ebay or at radio shack.

Should have a 1/8" mini male stereo plug on one side and a set (left and right) male RCA plugs on the other end.

Simply plug into the output of your sound card or motherboard (usually blue or green) into any available input (EXCEPT PHONO) on your receiver.

select that input and it should work

hope that helps

I ahve a kenmore receiver and i just recently

If your adapter has a stereo mini male plug, you will probably have to buy a headphone adapter plug and use the headphone jack on the stereo for your input connection.
