Question about Hitachi DZ-MV730A DVD Camcorder

1 Answer


My friend has a new Hitachi Midi stereo system which surprisingly has no headphone socket. I have put together an in line switch to turn the loud speakers off and bought a stereo headphone jack that will be placed on the system side of the swich but I get no sound from the jack. I have tried soldering to all three combinations of the connectors inside the stereo jack with no luck so far. Can you confirm which connectors inside the jack should be used if wiring from a +ve and -ve speaker output? Can I get this to work or is there some reason it never would?

Thanks Neil

Why is my canon gl1 speaker not working?

First, check the headphone jack and make sure it's working. After that, try the speaker once more. If it's still not working, then you have one of three problems: Either a bad headphone jack (there is an internal switch that cuts out the speaker) or you have a bad speaker (most probable), or someone left it unplugged interally (if it's been in for service previously) Should you require Professional service, we can help!

I do not have any rca or s-video input on my computer. How do I plug it in to copy it on computer?

Have you checked if it has other connectors? Typically, it might have a 3mm round plug, that is the same as your 3mm headphone stereo plug socket. The one on my camera has this but is has 4 coaxial connections along the shaft, instead of the 3 that you would see on a headphone plug. You will then need a suitable cable which would have RCA plugs on the other end. Alternatively, check the manual. Remember, if you don't have a manual for it, just go onto the Sharp website, and download one. They usually have them available for free.

How do i hook up jvc grd320 camcorder to play direct thriuh overhead projector?

Depends on what connectors are available on the overhead.
It should have RCA connectors Yellow for video and red and white for audio. These will work OK.
The camera may have a small socket marked A/V out which requires a proprietary cable like a 3.5 mm headphone jack (three rings, video and stereo) on one end and RCAs on the other.

The headphones socket doesn't seem to be working. The mic is picking up sound during recording, but I can't hear anything in the headphones or during play back. Any advice?

This is probably a defective headphone jack and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

JVC Everio GZ HD-40's external microphone problem

I have the GZ-HD40 and have tested the scenario below.

The problem is that the Microphones you are using are Mono, not Stereo. If you look at the plug on the end of your microphone you will see it has only two connections, the screen and the tip. For a Stereo mic it needs three connections screen, sleeve and tip, much like your headphone jack.

I know this is going to sound a bit nuts but use a set of head phones as a microphone. You will notice the left speaker acts as the left mic and the right speaker as the right mic.

Use microphone JVC MZ-V8 Stereo microphone and you will see that it has the three connectors as I have stated above.

Hope this helps.

Canao zr40 dv camera

If the volume won't turn up there could be many problems her are the criteria for different answers:
• the volume 'wave' goes up like it should, but no sound comes out, no matter how loud you put it- the speaker has most likely been disconnected from the circuit board.
• you push the volume up/down button, but nothing happens, at all, not even the sound 'wave' The volume up/down button/switch has been disconnected

Last alternative guess that works for both:
the software doesn't recognize the pushing of the button.
how to fix, best buy, circuit city, they'll help you reconnect the wires, and maybe the software too.
if it is the speaker, try putting in a pair of headphones, if it has a headphone jack that is

Monitor Sound for JVC GZ-HD7

I've never heard of an adapter and after a quick google search and all the options voided the warranty, but if i were to make an educated guess... the easiest way and unfortunately bulky way of doing this would be to use the av jack and the cable that came with the camcorder, take one or both of the RCA stereo ends and pass them through a mic - line level converter and that should work, or you can use one of the stereo RCA ends and use a rca to phono adapter and then connect a headphone volume amplifier to that. Other than those choses, I see no other way to monitor your record volume with headphones. 
JVC has been approached about this and they said they didn't include a headphone jack to reduce cost, but seriously. how expensive could that have been?

Samsung 880x digital zoom scl906 need cord for tv

The cable that goes from the camcorder to the TV or VCR is a simple one to replace. It's got a standard 3.5mm stereo headphone jack at one end and RCA's at the other. So all you need is a cord that is designed to let you play an MP3 player through a home stereo, and Radio Shack sells these, as does Wal Mart. The only thing is that one cable will be red and one white, whereas the original had one yellow and one white. Just plug the red plug into the yellow video-in jack on your TV or VCR.
