The sounds is making an echo when it gets to loud

As long as these headphones are not the wireless type. Then your problem sounds like the earth connection has become detached. Perhaps at the plug/jack end. If you can't solve it cut the ******** and fit a new one.

    The Jack plug will be most likely a 3.5mm Jack. The coloured bands are just insulation between the channels. The colour does not effect the sound at all. So don't worry about them matching. The 3.5 refers to the diameter of the metal shaft.

    All you need to ask for is a 3.5mm Stereo Jack plug.

    They come with a silver type metal shaft, or a gold one. Gold ones are better, but cost a little bit more.

    When you connect the new one cut open the old one and it will show you which wires go to which terminal in the new one.

    There will be 4 wires- two will be coloured (left & right) the others are earths they both go on the large metal terminal.

    If you get the left & right wires on the wrong terminals (don't worry) just reverse them. Make certain though the L&R wires don't short each other or touch the earth connection.

    If you connect an AA battery 1.5 volt across one coloured wire and one of the earths it will cause the speaker to pop. So you can work out the right and left wires.

    On the new plug you will see two small metal terminals with holes in them these are the left and right connections. The long piece of metal is for the earths. At the end of it are two metal flanges they grip the black cable to prevent it being pulled out. The black cable should end here (not outside the plug). Don't forget to put the plastic cover on the cable before you solder the wires to the plug.

    If you think anything might short put tape over it.

    As I said, If you get the left & right wires on the wrong terminals (don't worry) just reverse them.

    Hope that is clear now!

Dryer starts for 10 sec and then stops, has an burn smell it runs great Although when it stops it won't restart until a few mins later. Then the same over again. Its a loud noise when going for 10 sec

It sounds like it's overheating.
Find and clean the filter.
The noise might be something caught between the drum and the mechanism. A bra underwire is common if your female (anonymous)?)
Check with a good torch...
If you rotate the drum and it squeaks it's something jammed or maybe the bearing.

I cant find the echo part on the mixer for karaoke

The effects or FX section is on the top right of the mixer. On your vocal channels find the yellow knob marked FX and turn it to 0. Choose the effect you need using the Program knob (top right) for karaoke this will probably be 03 or 06. Start singing and turn up the yellow knob marked 3 - FX under AUX Sends until the LEDs above them hit -0db, no higher.
Now find the button marked FX - Main Mix and make sure it is UP.
Turn up the yellow knob (3 - FX) next to it until you can hear enough echo on your mic.

So when I listen with my headphones now, they only play the background music (if that makes sense). The music is almost echo-y and sounds far away. I rarely get the main music/singer, and if I do hear...


It sounds like this might be a setting on whichever MP3 player, or sound device that you are using. You should check for an "EQ" on your device and try setting it to a different setting to make it so you can hear the music and vocals of a song.

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this,

Can't hear voice of singer on speakers, more of an echo sound

An old trick to remove vocals from a song was to rip the right channel, then the left, the combine them (since vocals are typically mixed in a third 'center' channel, though things like reverb or echo are applied to the right and/or left channels which sounds like what you are hearing).

I would play with the balance and mixer settings and see if you can get the vocals back. Also try other speakers or even headphones and see if you have the same problem.

Hope this helps!

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.

Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
