Amplifier blowing Hi I live in a complex where we are experiencing load shedding. Every time this happens it apparently blows an amplifier for the aerials. Is there anything we can do to prevent this?

Looking up South African voltages, they vary from 220 - 250 volts at 50 cycles.
You probably also have voltage spikes from sudden load changes within the complex (air conditioners, washing machines, dryers, etc.

I suggest your complex invest in a good voltage regulator transformer. It should not need to be rated more than about 500 watts. I would guess the cost to be about $150-200 USD.

If this is more than you want to spend, try a spike suppressor, power strip first.

This indicates your signal from that network is too weak. If your antenna and cabling are OK, you may need a digital signal amplifier.

To really check this out thoroughly, you need a digital signal strength meter, or a service tech. Ebay has a lot of them

DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Amplifier / Receiver Control

Would you like to program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume of your receiver, tuner, or stereo instead of your TV's volume?

e818a57.jpg


The first step in using the Universal Remote Control that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume level of your receiver, tuner, or stereo is to program the remote to control your audio device using the AUX mode button.

Once your remote controls your audio device in AUX mode, you probably want to continue to control the volume of your stereo even if the remote is in SAT, TV or VCR mode.

To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the AUX button until all the mode buttons are lit, and then let it go.
  2. Press the POUND (#) button.
  3. Press the PLUS side of the VOLUME button.
  4. Press 0.
  5. Press the POUND (#) button. The AUX button flashes three times to tell you the programming is complete.
  6. Confirm the VOLUME buttons are operating the tuner/amplifier's volume control by pressing SAT or TV, and then adjusting the volume. Your tuner/amplifier's volume should change rather than your TV's volume.

Your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote is now setup to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in

I hope that helps.

How to connect my JVC Audio/video control receiver digital surround sound system


Hi,
Need to know how to set up a surround sound system? It's fairly easy, with the right equipment. Surround sound gives you that "theater" feel in your own home.
For more information on optimizing the sound of your chosen system visit:
http://www.ehow.com/how_3393_set-surround-sound.html.
To set up a surround sound system go to:
http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/34579/219978.html.

Additionally,Some people prefers a wire diagram to connect their surround sound system. The basic concept to connect any audio system is to follow the path of sound from its origin to its final output stage, either headphones or speakers. There are other basic premises to follow, such as the impedance of the speakers and the output of the amplifier, but the concept is to start with an input and terminate each input to an output somewhere on the amplifier unit.
A wire diagram shows a picture that represents where each of these wires would go in considerably little detail. One example would be that a television set starts with a signal from somewhere, broadcast or cable, and comes out of that antenna and goes into the surround sound amplifier. The sound is processed in some way and the video is output to the television set and the audio is output to the speakers or headphones. Although complicated in textual from, most find that a wire diagram is much easier to follow.

How do i connect a audio pin from the camcorder to the amplifier


If the Camcorder has the A/V OUT, you can connect the A/V OUT of the Camcorder to the Audio IN on the Amplifier. You can use RCA Cable to connect like this way.

If the Camcorder has the Headphone OUT jack, then you can connect it to the Stereo mini IN on the Amplifier. This should work.

Some Camcorder have the HDMI OUT jack. You can connect the Camcorder to HDMI IN on the Amplifier(if it has one).

On the rear of a Prosonic TV there are an audio out, coax connection for an amplifier. How can this plug / connection support an amplifier with a stereo signal? Make: Prosonic Model NO.:PBT-26001


It's a digital signal, basically, it's sending left and right out as 2 seperate frequencies and needs to connect to a suitable amp to "decode" the signal.

Poor antenna reception


That's a problem with the digital broadcasting. Signal strength is critical, and the frequencies used are more directional. Some people are finding they get no reception at all. Your antenna may not need to be higher, but aimed in a different direction. Did you have a rotator installed as well? An outside antenna really should be pointed toward the station. You might also be able to add an amplifier to the antenna to boost the signal. But get a mast-mounted version that mounts right at the antenna, not the kind that goes at the TV set.

MAGNAVOX 27-inch STEREO TV w/CRT display


Hello obpett,

You may have a problem whit your audio section of your TV. This would be troubleshot in the following manner: Using a schematic diagram working back from the speakers locate the point at which you get an indication of audio signal, using either an oscilloscope or a audio test amplifier with probes. This will let you know the stage at which audio drops out. If the audio is part of a single processor the test at the out put of the processor to the amplifier, this will determine if there really is audio going into the audio amplifier. If there is no audio then the problem is in the processor or the stage prior to the amplifier. If there is audio at this point then the problem is in the amplifier or in its biasing circuitry. Now if you know nothing about electronics, I would suggest that you take your TV to a TV repair shop. If you do have experience you will need a schematic diagram of your TV, a multimeter, an audio test amplifier, and an oscilloscope to perform these tests mentioned above. I hope this helps.

Let me give the reason I do things this way. While I want to provide a service I feel, that I bear some responsibility in the actions that you may do in reference to your TV set. So while I am here to provide help, I will always tell a customer to go to the proper repair facilities first, before attempting repairs, I know this seems odd but to just tell a person go do this or that is not wise thing to do in a legal sense. In an event as stated if you do not have experience in electronics, I would suggest going to your local TV repair shop.

Thank you,

Sharp tv audio problem


You may have a tunner problem. Try this turn your TV to channel 3 connect you cable to it and select a channel. If thesound has a problem what may be happening is the the audio detector may not be working properly or the audio amplification stages may not be working correctly from the audio detector. You will have to test the audio stage from the detector to the last audio amplifier to troubleshoot this problem. If you have experiences in this that's good if not take the set to a qualified service technician.
