The input on the tuner needs to be replaced. It will have to be unsoldered from the outside of the tuner and there is a lead inside of the tuner that has to be unsoldered to get the old one off. You will then have to solder the new one back into those places. The input is only a buck or two. An old trick that some people do, is get a small piece of aluminum foil and stick it into the hole, and then reconnect the cable. Just make sure the foil is all the way in, and not touching the metal on the outside of the input. That will help a lot of times.

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable


Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.


Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.


Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.


Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.


Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.


Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

I need to repair internal wires


Typically you have to unstring the guitar to get access to the insides.

Use a small miirror to view the insides. You may need to drag the jack out of the sound hole to resolder wires if they are broken. There should be three wires on the jack. One carries the audio, one the ground, and the third connects the battery when the instrument cable is plugged in.

After re-soldering the connections if needed, procure a piece of 1/4 inch wood dowel from your hardware store. Push the dowel through the hole where the jack goes and near the sound hole. Push the jack onto the dowel and then pull it back through the jack hole and pass the nut over the dowel and onto the jack threads and tighten. The extract the dowel rod from the jack.

It is near impossible to reach clear into the guitar body to put the jack back in without the dowel rod unless you have very tiny arms.

Dc jack


The PCG-K37 (Sony VAIO Laptop) uses a DC Jack soldered to a two-wire jacketed (shielding) cable that is routed under the DVD (tray) and towards the back to the Voltage Board located under the Touch Pad (Mouse) via a white polarized plug. The wires are color-coded Red (+) and Black (-); a third black wire is NOT attached to the DC Plug, but is used as a grounding wire for the Voltage Board to the LCD Hinge MOUNT only. Remove the battery and DC plug (AC Adaptor Wire) from the laptop first, before going any further.) To access the DC Plug requires removing the Keyboard Hood (houses the stereo speakers & power button) carefully by prying up from where the F-Keys (top row) are. There are four (4) slots: above the "Delete Key," and "F10" and "F4" and "ESC Key," and you will have to press these keys to see the pry slots for a thin blade screw driver to fit. The "Hood" pops up gently and is connected by a thin strip "Wire Cable" through the aluminum keyboard shield down to the motherboard. The "Wire Strip" cable is held in place on the Power Button Board by a sliding pressure retainer (Tan in Color) - it slides away (approx 1/8 of an inch) from the circuit board to let go of the cable. (To re-attach: make sure the retainer clip (Tan in Color) is up before sliding in the wire cable strip and push the retainer back in by applying pressure on both ends to seat it.) With the Keyboard Hood out of the way; remove the keyboard (3 screws only) and set the screws aside. The keyboard swings toward you and the wire connector cable for the keyboard is attached to the motherboard the same way the Hood is connected - a larger pressure retainer clip. With the keyboard out of the way; the aluminum shield must be removed. There are ten (10) screws holding this shield down, so please note which "length" screw goes where is should because putting the longer screw in the wrong place may damage something when it bottoms out. Next is removing the laptop Palm Rest (it contains the touch pad) and there are two screws easily missed near the touch pad on top; the rest of the screws are accessable when you close the lid (LCD) and flip the laptop up-side-down. Unscrew each screw one at a time and flip the laptop over to drop out each screw individually to catch them in your hand. Look for the tiny arrows to locate the screws and don't forget to lift up the battery door to get to the two (2) tiny screws, too. There should be a total of thirteen (13) of these screws and again please note the difference in lengths and where they go. Once you have all screws accounted for; set the laptop right-side-up and lift open the lid (LCD) carefully because the latch catch is hooked. (Slide the latch hook to open.) With the Lid open, you will see a thinner wire cable (white) attached to another pressure clip - it's the touch pad cable attached to the Voltage Board; release it just like you did with the keyboard cable and you can start lifting the Palm Rest up and away from the laptop case to expose the motherboard. At this point, you can see the DC Jack in the back right side corner. To get more room to manuver around, you may remove the DVD by opening the Hard Drive Bay Door and removing the two (2) tiny, short screws near the bottom of the hard drive (no need to remove the HD). The DVD slides out. Looking again on top of the motherboard, you will see a glide rail for the DVD and a metal shield covering the DC cable; remove the screws carefully and note the lengths again for proper placement. The next trick is to only move one LCD hinge out of the way, so it is important to secure the LCD in a way so that the one remaining hinge is NOT DAMAGED during this repair process. There are three (3) screws holding the hinge to the laptop case and that third screw in in the back of the laptop between the DC Jack and the modem's phone (RJ-11) jack. There is a hold-down bracket to secure the modem jack and the DC Jack; only one screw keeps it there. After getting the hold-down bracket out of the way; the DC Jack slides up and out. Remember how the DC Jack was positioned because putting it back in up-side-down makes it hard to plug the AC Adaptor in for laptop use on AC power. Use heat-shrink tubing and your insulators and avoid using electrical tape after soldering the two wires onto the new DC Jack. Also remember that the RED WIRE is soldered to the Center Post connector. Reverse the disassembly listed above to re-assemble. If you think this was tough, now you know why Technicians charge a minimum of $99 to do this job. But at least you now know that the DC Jack is NOT attached to the motherboard and the motherboard does not require complete removal just to get to the worn-out DC Jack. And YES!; DC Jack do wear out because the Adaptor plug is pulled on sooooo many times that the DC Jack take the abuse more than the plug does; and that's because there is more stability built into the plug than the DC Jack. One additional note: the Keyboard Hood connector cable is usually the first thing people damage accidently by folding the crease too many times. Wires inside this "tape" will break just like bending and twisting solid thicker wires will break. The replacement part is found on the Sony Parts Website for about $10 plus S&H. You will know you need it replaced when you can not seem to keep the laptop "ON" or the HD & Power lights fail to glow or you still can not get power to recharge the battery. The circuits for these functions run through that flat tape wire cable to the Keyboard Hood. Good Luck! (I say that because it will take up your entire evening, take up your entire dining room table, and wear thin the nerves of your spouse who will be very concerned about that table you are using to venture on!) Oh, and one more thing... Unplug the telephone as distractions should be avoided until you finish putting everything back together (or you WILL forget things).
