Trying to sort aux-in

Hi - I recently purcahsed a wharfedale cd player.

It has a Left and Right Aux-in slot. I tried to plug in a standard 3.5mm male male jack, so I could connect my iPod directly.

However, as there is a left and right slot, it only comes out one speaker and VERY quietly. Is there a cable which can convert from the left/right aux-in input to the standard 3.5mm jack?

thanks :)

Hi,
as you do not mention the model I have to guess that your player has a aux-in on phono (or RCA) jack. If you want to plug the iPod just buy a "Twin phono to 3.5mm stereo jack cable".
You can find in many superstores or Maplin.

Please tell me how to hook up my Wii and my cd player and my dvd player to Pioneer VSX-D309 receiver


Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so on the back of the unit there should be labeled connections, AUX, DVD, etc. These will be your inputs.
If your Wii has RCA connectors (the plug like ends that are usually Red, White & Yellow) then you would connect the Red plug to the AUX right speaker input. The White plug to the AUX left speaker input. If you want to run the video through the unit to the TV, then you would plug the Yellow plug to the AUX video input. If not, the yellow plug with go straight to the TV. If you are using HDMI from you Wii, then you would plug that into one of your HDMI inputs.

You will do the same for CD player but using the inputs labeled CD or whatever you have available. You can use any of these inputs for any of your devices it just helps to know what is connected where.

The DVD player may be a different story. Depending on what type of connection you are using from the DVD player will depend on where you plug it in. If they are red, white and yellow...then follow as above. If they are red & white on half the cable and blue, green and red on the other, you will plug the red & white ones that are close together into the red and white audio inputs under the DVD labeled connections. Then the other 3 will go into their matching colored inputs. If the connection from the DVD player is HDMI, that will go into a HDMI slot.

Finally, connect the unit to the TV. Keep in mind that if you are using any HDMI inputs, you will need to connect the unit to the TV via a HDMI cable.

Hope that helps.

How do i get a cd player to hook up to a sansui au 9900a amplifier as well as the sansui tu 9900 tuner


You can connect the CD player to the amplifier using a standard set of RCA cables (left and right channel / red & white connectors). Connect the CD output to an input on the amplifier (usually one designated for CD or possibly "Aux") Then select this input source in order on the Amplifier.

There would be no reason to connect the CD player to a Tuner. Not even sure a tuner whould have any inputs in order to connect a CD player.

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

How do i hook up mt ipod


To hook up your ipod to an a/v reciever you need a stereo mini to male rca cable. You plug the mini side into you ipods head phone jack, and the male rca's left and right(usually red and white colored plugs) to an auxilary input on the a/v reciever.-Example, tape, aux, sa/cd.
Change the input on the reciever to correspond with where you connected the ipod
Ensure the ipod is powered on and playing with the volume turned up.

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.

Hi, I have the Panasonic SA-EN9, and if you plug your mp3 player (I have and ipod) into the auxiliary socket you should be able to play it by pressing the AUX button on the remote provided.

No sound from right speaker when mp3 connected through aux


Hi bustero78

What happens when you rotate the plug or wriggle it about. If it cuts in and out, then you may have a faulty interconnect lead, or a dodgy socket/plug connection to the player. If it works with headphones, I would suggest replacing the lead.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
