I don't know which Sony Handycam you have but, some have output RCA jacks on side. Usually two R/L audio and one video. Plug audio jacks to amp's video of audio "aux" input. Some Handycams have input/output switches,-- observe.

How to hook up a 7 band pioneer equalizer great 470 to a Kenwood kr-v6030 receiver


Connecting an Equalizer to a Receiver Before beginning, purchase RCA cables. In order to run the signal from a stereo receiver to the graphic equalizer and then on to the amplifier, two sets of RCA cables are needed. These are basic cables used to connect auxiliary components like record players and CD players. The length of the RCA cables should be about the same length as the distance between the receiver and equalizer.

1. Connect Graphic the Equalizer to the Receiver

The first step in this setup is to connect the graphic equalizer (EQ) to the receiver. Most receivers will have preamp-in and preamp-out connections. Some have tape monitor connections. It's preferable to connect the EQ to the preamp-in or preamp-out because the tape monitor won't allow for connection to the amplifier as well.

2. Connect the RCA Cables

The first set of RCA cables should connect the receiver and equalizer. Connect one pair to the preamp output channels and the other end to the left and right input channels on the EQ. These are on the back side of the equalizer. Usually, the colors will correspond to the RCA plugs. That means connect the red plug to the red jack and the white plug to the white jack. Then connect the second pair of RCA cables between the receiver and the amp. Match the colors in the same way.

3. Connect the Amp to the Receiver

Now the amp can be connected to the receiver via RCA cables in the amp inputs on the receiver. This will create a loop from the receiver through the EQ and amp and back to the receiver so that all three units are connected.

4. Test Graphic Equalizer

Turn on the receiver, amp and equalizer. Once they are powered up, try controlling the sound with the equalizer knobs. They should fine tune the music according to your preferences. It's easy to change the frequency response or tone of the music with the equalizer knobs.

What is a compatible turntable for my Sherwood rx-4109 receiver?


many decks have pre amps or need preamps. hence the reason why you have distorted sound i would guess. you need the opposite of what you used. What record deck did you try?

Where do I hook up the record player


That would depend on what type of outputs your record player has. If it only has RCA (white/black and red), simply choose one of the two RCA inputs. If it has optical or coaxial outputs, and you don't have another device you wish to use one of those, then those would be fine as well. Hope this helps!

How do i hook up a record player


A record player has a very small signal coming out from the cartridge.If your amp doesn't have "phono in" then try "tape in".If no luck then you have to plug the record players output to a preamp first then from there to "aux in".

Dropped the mic.


I would imagine the mic element broke. To test, remove from the case and without touching anything else, touch (using a small screwdriver if need be) the solder connections on the wires for the mic element (while system is up). Hum? Yes? bad mic element. No? Problem with electronics. Look for broken wires also.
The receiver shows signal so RF is ok. You have a problem with the audio section.

My internal microphone doesn't work


If you are refering to the internal microphone on your computer then try this. Open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound waves in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure the microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder and try to record again. If this does not work your internal microphone may not be working or your computer may not have come with a built in microphone.There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.

I am using my mic and it dosent work. IT says it is working but its not. IT dosent record any sound


Not sure what kind of microphone you're using but if it is plugged into a receiver (which is the heading you have your question under) it must be powered with either batteries or a preamp.

The receiver input jack does not provide the power required for the microphone to record sound. It will show something is connected, but nothing will record. Inexpensive microphone preamps and powered microphones can be found at any major electronics store.

I am trying to hook a turntable to RXV363 amplifier. The RXV363 does not have RCA jack inputs labeled for a turntable. I tried using the DVD and DVR Input. I think the problem is there is no an adequate...


You need a phono pre amp to plug onto the phono leads of your turn table then into any input on the amp.A Turntable has a much lower output than cd or any other device so needs to be boosted,when you pluged it in I bet the sound was awfull.Buy the best phono stage you can .
hope this helps.
