To use supply the radio with 12 volts you would have to use a power supply such as an Astron which can be purchased at Ham Radio Outlet and other ham radio shops, you can get their number on the internet. The 110 AC to 12 volt DC is not the problem..it requires the amperage to make the radiois work.... You can use a 12 volt battery and use it for a maybe an hour without charging....the radio will not work with a car battery charger... Hope this helps

How do I remove electrical interference on my dvd recorder?


Hi David
You need to figure out how the interference is getting inside.
Look at the external connections.
HDMI Cable or Perhaps the Power Connector.
Noise from the power cable would be most likely.
A Ferrite Bead can often be clipped onto power lead to dampen electrical noise. Electronics supply stores have these.
If an AC to DC external box is used. What is the required DC input to your DVD ?
For example if the AC is dropped to 12v DC and then plugged into player via a small connector. You could get your own connector and supply from a 12v vehicle battery. Be careful to maintain correct polarity to tip of connector.
Use a cheap multimeter to check voltage & polarity.
Substitution....This would prove that the noise source is from the Power Supply.
Cheers

Ac/dc TV. Can I unplug dc lead and plug in ac adaptor to use ac power?


Some ac/dc TVs are supplied with separate power cables for the desired use. It is best to use the recommended ac adapter rather than a "generic" adapter.

Kenwood KRF-V6070D no audio


• If you have a multimeter, check for DC outputs on the amps,

coming from IC301/401 (hybrid IC)

• Or use a headphones .It could just be some cold solder joints

( if there is no humming in headphones) or regulators

on the power supply.


• Check other inputs, you might find one working.


Let me know if you need further assistance!

I bought a campact disc player (Durabrand; Model CD-896; made by Lenoxx Electronics Corp) which did not include AC adaptor. Now I am trying to find a matching adapter (DC: 4.5V 500mA). Can I find it on...


Power supplies with those specs are common online. Radio Shack could probably set you up with a universal power supply that adapts to all the common plug sizes.

web search "4.5V 500mA dc supply"

When i plug my wharfdale digital radio in the mains it makes a loud buzzing sound yet works perfectly when using battery power


I assume you are talking about listening on the set's own loudspeaker.
The power supply for the receiver is faulty, it is not producing a nice smooth DC like it should. Is it an external supply? If so try a new one, if not there is a faulty component in the radio power supply.

It's a Kenwood VR-4080 the reciever turns on and works but has very low volume and amp sinks get hot reguardless of volume setting?


heat in amps =power or fault, since you have no power then its most likely the fault that is causing the heat, I would take it to my dealer or a good tech. Modern amps like these are very complicated, almost impossible to diagnose and repair without cct diagrams and service info. They also have potentially dangerous DC power rails.

Hope this helps

Radio Panasonic RF-4900 - no power


Just spent the afternoon with an RF4900 with a power problem. The set was intermittent. Found on the back of the set where the ac plugs in, there is a switch that is ingaged when the ac plugs into the set. If the ac cord is old it might not be engaging this switch when the cord is plugged into the set. The switch controls ether battery power or ac power.
