Question about Emerson MS3100 3-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Speaker Problems Like a few others here, one of the speakers is not functioning properly. The left output works 100% of the time, and the right side does not. If you isolate the right side, and turn the volume to max, the song playing can faintly be heard. Is there something I can do about this?

    First, thank you for the timely response. Both of the speakers are working properly as discovered by switching them. The problem must be the right channel audio amplifier. Is there a way I can fix this?

Can you swap speakers and see if the left working speaker works when plugged into the right output?

If it does, then your right speaker is bad or the right speaker cable/plug may be bad.

If the working left speaker doesn't work on the right output, then I would suspect a problem in the right channel audio amplifier.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

    Yes, it can be fixed. The audio amplifier is either defective or perhaps there is a bad solder joint on the terminals.

    The audio amplifier is usually a module with a metal tab that is bolted to a piece of metal, like the chassis. Since this is a stereo, there will usually be two of these (for right & left) unless both channels are in one package.

    I'd locate the right module and see if the solder joints look good. If they look okay, then the module will need to be replaced. You'll need to locate the part number on the module package and you can try to contact a company like

    and see if they carry a replacement part.

    I would not try to replace this part unless you have adequate desoldering/soldering experience. In this case, you'll need to take it to a repair facility to be repaired.

I have a Rowe AMI 100 cd jukebox. The right side speaker will play for about 3 songs and then go out. Other speakers continue ti work. Is this a speaker problem or something else?

Make sure all the wiring is secure, you may have a bad coil on the speaker, then you need your amplifier checking by someone competent

I have a Rowe AMI 100 CD jukebox. It plays about 3 song and then right upper speaker goes out. Is this a speaker problem or something else?

You could have connector problems on the speaker crossover network located inside the amplifier compartment on the opposite wall from the amplifier. Typically the solder joints go bad where the connectors are soldered to the board. Usually a simple resoldering can fix it. There could also be problems with the connectors at that particular speaker itself.

DENON UD-M30 CD Player is displaying the word PROTECT and will not function. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Many thanks.

Usually when a receiver goes into protect mode, there are several reasons, One is there is a bad speaker connected to the unit, this will cause the unit to to into protect mode, try disconnecting all speaker from the unit and turning it on if it does not go into protect then one of the speakers are bad. Another reason is the power output Amplifier IC is shorted inside the unit. Another reasons could be that speaker wires are touching each other and causing a short. Disconnect all unit connecting to the unit and try turning on, if it stays on and no protect then connect them including the speakers one at time until you determine which is causing the error. If it goes into protect with nothing but the unit on then the Output IC is bad and the unit needs servicing.

What external speakers do I need for the RP8078? Where can I get them?

You cannot connect it diretly to speaker. It has only preamplifier output for left and right channels, and an optical output to connect it to digital input sources. You must have an amplifier and speaker system to connect it with. It can be any type and brand you like, according to your taste and finacial capacity. Amps can be of cheaper to high quality type. This device can be connected to a digital amplifier, with optical intput, frome which it will convert the signal upto 8 channels or more. But the cost will be sometimes 200 times to the cost of your present device you have revealed here. OK.

I have a Seeburg Entertainer which keeps losing the sound from the left hand top speaker, any ideas what it could be ? Thanks you for any suggestions Simon.

Hello Simon,

Are the connections to the speaket tight? If not tighten them also check the amplifier where the speakers wiring are connected to it for tightness (more than likely they will be on screwed down connections).

You could try swapping the two top speakers to see if the fault remains on the left channel, if it swaps to the right then you need a new speaker, if the fault keeps occurring on the left then you may need a repair to the amplifier.

Want to conect external 1015 amplifier need to know what plugs-jacks to buy each left -right outlet has tiny rectangular connection .and tiny hole size of pen nib.thanks jay

On the K99 amp there are just 4 screw terminals on the left side of the amp. So you just unscrew the screw a little and clamp the speaker wire under it. What you are describing though is different. (Are they on the speakers?) The edge of the rectangular bit presses down, then you push the bare end of the wire into the hole and release the plastic part. The wire is then clamped inside that little hole.

I have been given an old JVC stereo for my son - its all separates though we wont be using the tape deck - anyway I just dont have a clue about what wire goes where and its driving me nuts!!!!!!! Is there...

You don't mention the model number, so this info is generic:
Think of it like water flowing, in one end and out the other. Each patch cord will run from the input to an output. The receiver or amplifier has inputs for the tuner, tape deck(s), turntable (sometimes high & low) and auxiliary, which could be TV or whatever other sound source you have, a cd player, e.g.
The outputs from the various sound players will go to the inputs on the receiver. The tape deck will also have an input - that's for the tape out from the receiver, which sends a signal of other sources to the tape for recording.
If there's a separate amp and preamp, the preamp output will be the amp input.
Use red on right, white on left, and be consistent.
Speaker wires should be connected in phase, i.e. make sure the striped side of the wire is always either plus or minus, but be consistent from speaker to speaker, and do the same on both ends of the connection, from amp(receiver) to speaker.
Here and here are a couple of links to helpful articles for more information.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
