    I think I have got the system wrong! My sincere apologies fo this. Stelios has given me a link for the manual for the HS8. This unfortunately does not give technical gen If you can get me to circuitry - I'm sure it would help. Any further help as to where to start looking would be a bonus!! Many thanks for your help.

    Thaank you for that info. The pedal washers are fine. The manuals( by that I mean top and lower keyboards,) have failed together with the expression pedal. I feel there must be a common link somewhere, but have yet to find it!! The organ was working fine until this happened. I think there are two relays inside, but can only find one on the PA amp. board. I very much appreciate the help given up to now. Still struggling!!!

To get the user manual click on this link directly http://safemanuals.com/314159.php?k=967b599a62a4444d85a48c7f7a801343&ID=512685&q=YAMAHA%20HS-8-HS-7-HS-6-HS-5-HS-4 --------- Its very easy to get manual.Just rate starts in all the options then click on download option and wait for few seconds.It will get downloaded then click on option it will get opened. And for pedal sand not working. If you have the pedal-sand then you can remove and clean the pedal sand and check out. HS8 pedals have stopped working 1) remove the expression pedals. 2)In step 2, instead of putting the entire organ on its left side, separate the keyboard from the bottom part. It is possible to split up the HS organ. Take out the 4 screws which attach the keyboard to the stand. There are 2 on the back and 2 on the front side, just next to the power connector and on the left side of the organ. The 2 screws on the back side are located in the cut-out area where you can put your fingers to lift the keyboard. This way it's much easier to put the bottom piece on its side. 3)In step 3, one of the screws is hidden under a rectangular metal box. So you have to remove the box in order to get at the screw. The metal box has some circuitry inside, so tape the metal box to the organ so it stays connected. 4) Once you have removed the bottom plate you will likely notice the problem. The rubber rings, or bushings, have deteriorated over time. Notice the cracks and how they have flattened-out like batter coming out of a waffle iron. Once this has happened they must get replaced. 5)To get to the bushings you further disassemble the pedal board.Remove the 5 more screws from the side to do this. 6) Now the pedal board should become loose from the instrument. This is the reason why we put the organ on it's left side.Lay the pedal board on the floor still attached to the organ by the bundle of wires.The pedal board has to come off because the bolts with the failing rubber rings have a nut on the other side. 7) If the rubber washers have basically disintegrated and feel like grease then replace it.clean the pedals and the bolts really well to remove any remaining rubber. You can use paper towel and a mini screw driver. 8)Remove all pedals that have decayed rubber rings.While you have the insrument open you might as well replace any rings that might fail anytime soon. 9)If washers are bad then you can still get replacement washers from Yamaha. buy the washers from Yamaha Canada Music Ltd. Here is the info:
Yamaha Canada Music Ltd.
135 Milner Avenue, Toronto, On. M1S 3R1.
PART # WD007200.
PRICE $5.00 each
PLUS $7.00 SHIPPING & TAXES.
10)then refit all the parts and check the pedals should start working again.If bit of noise is noticed then its just the fitting,that will get adjusted after sometime of usage. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Tape playback on Magnavox MWR20V6


When was the last time you ran the "head cleaning" tape in the machine? As tape collects dust and dirt - it gets deposited on the recording and playback heads. This ruins playback and recording quality. Also, since tape is magnetic - they tend to magnetize the heads, too (just like reel to reel, 8 track & cassette player / recorders). Demagnetizing them will help too. Here are links to both products:

No sound when playback or after finalized


Perhaps the microphone was muted while you were making the original recording? Have you tried playing back a new recording with the microphone active?

ION TAPE EXPRESS records tapes but no sound


Probably the way you have set up the sound card for playback. My computer uses SoundMax and there are sliders for playback levels on different device connections some of which can be switched off. I should check whatever you have installed on your system.

I have just bought a Dictaphone express writer 1740. It rewinds and fast forward but does not play properly. It is in excellent condition. We are using micro cassettes. The manual said this machine can...


This unit takes mini cassettes, not micro. A common issue with the playback on this model is the rubber tire on the drive reel cracks, causing it not to turn. It probably needs to be replaced.

7. Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Sound recorder
8. Take a test recording with Sound recording using the microphone of the webcam. Then playback the recording and check whether it was recorded clearly.

Skype


Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).

Audio on Webcam is distorted - seems to be recording at a slower speed and palying back at normal spped


as a workaround you can use the headset, you just need to configure your messenger again to use the sound from the mic input instead from the webcam.

Records media but playback has no audio.


Are you absolutely sure that it is receiving an audio signal?
What input are you using? Try recording using alternate inputs.
Audio part of a VCR is normally way more reliable than the video.
The exception is on high-end stereo types where they record the extra audio signals using the video head cylinder in which case it can easily be lost.
