Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Over a year ago now I purchased a Yamaha Pianocraft RX-E700. This system works well save for when I plug the auxiliary output into the headphone jack of my laptop (in order to play song through it) I can hear the music faintly but there is quite a loud buzzing sound. Is it something that I can fix? Or is it related to the cable I am using?

Probably a poorly shielded or grounded cable. Also check the laptop to see that it's audio output is sufficiently high.

Shouldn't the ouput of the Yamaha go to an input (nicrophone) on the laptop?

    If I place it in the headphone jack the buzzing sound is even louder and comes from, the laptop itself.

    Tried the audio output. Everything is maxed out.

    Is there anything else I should try before buying a new cable?

    Ohhh. You're sending audio from the Yamaha to a laptop. Why?



    Regardless, are you certain there is an output labeled AUX on the Yamaha? I can't find a picture to verify it. That would be very unusual as AUX is usually a generic Line Level Input. You would still need to feed the Microphone jack on the laptop with it. Out's to In's, you know.



    Other than that, If I misunderstand your scheme and you have it connected in a functional way, go for a cable.

Your receiver has Zone-2 functionality. For Zone-2, it has both speaker (powered) output and pre-out line outputs. According to Yamaha FAQ, these pre-out outputs are independent on the main volume settings. So if your wireless headphones have their own volume settings, you can change the volume independent on speakers volume.

If you want same volume for speakers and headpohones, use the PRE-OUT FRONT outputs on the back. If you want different volumes (and listen to headphones even with speakers muted), use ZONE-2 OUT outputs on the back.

Can i hook up my PC to my sterio system through the headphone jack on the stereo to the PC HEadphone jack? been trying to get it to work on Auxilary but no sound :( please help


If you are still working on the question you asked about. This is what I would do. One of two things:

First: purchase an adapter that goes from your laptop 3.5 mm headphone jack to the microphone input if there is one.

Second: Would be to purchase what is called a "Cassette Tape Adapter". This will take your 3.5 mm headphone jack and play it through your cassette tape area of your stereo.

I hope one of these is a solution that will help you. -- wicc --

normally a Hum is caused by a bad ground,, if it only happens when the unit warms up it could be the output drives are failing. , check the grounds to the unit first, then the wires to the speakers themselves, if they all check out ok,, you need to take it to a repair shop dealing with receivers

No sound


There can be any number of reasons for this problem - solve it diagnostically by starting with something that you know is working and work through systematically to the other end.
  1. Test a microphone on a separate amp to make sure it works okay. Check amp and speakers working. Check that all output cables from mixer to amp are working by testing separately.
  2. Plug microphone into a channel on mixer. Also plug in headphones and turn headphone volume control up.
  3. Make sure input sensitivity knob is turned up a bit (say half way) and main output faders (yellow) are up.
  4. Check that channel is turned on (little button just above the channel fader- needs to be pressed down)
  5. press pfl (pre-fade listen) button (next to button to switch channel on)- do you get any sound on main output or headphones or any indicator lights on mixer to show signal is getting that far (eitehr the individual channel metering lights or the main ones in the central section)?
  6. turn off pfl - make sure channel fader (slider) is up - normal position is ) - about 3/4 of way up. Check lights again on individual channel and main output section - any signs?
  7. Is the sub mix button for the channel pressed down - in which case you will need to bring sub mix (red) output faders up as well as main faders.
  8. If you have got signs of signal on the individual channel but not main see if the channel has been routed somewhere odd (like a subgroup of channels).
  9. Plug a working amp and speakers into one of the auxiliary outputs and use the relevant auxiliary send knob (on each channel just above the faders and pfl switches) to pan some signal to that auxiliary out - do you get anything? There is also a headphone socket for listening to the auxiliary channels (with a selector switch /knob to determine which one - make sure it is in the right position) try listening to the auxiliary output with headphones - anything? If yes the problem lies in the main output section.
  10. Check that there is not a jack plug in the insert socket (to route signal through an external effects unit) without a matching return jack being plugged in - if appropriate is relevant effects unit switched on and correctly set up - if unsure remove the insert plug to take it out of the system.
  11. Make sure any mute buttons are not switched in on main outputs.

The REC OUT jacks on the back are usually the best as they are not affected by the system volume. You'll need an RCA L and R Male to Headphone (1/4" female) adapter (available at Radio Shack and online sellers).

How do i hook up an ipod to the rx v596


If you get a dock and a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono plugs lead, it will then connect to any spare aux imput socket. At the same time the dock will keep the battery in the i-pod charged. Or you can just plug the same lead into the headphone output of the i-pod, but the battery will run down.

You need a coax to RCA converter. Do a google search, Belkin makes one, Radio Shack probably has one too.

Yamaha RX V490 Turning itself Off


The amp is in protect mode which means that the output section has a problem. With nothing connected, there are defective parts inside the unit. This type of problem is not likely to have been caused by any shipping damage. I would guess that the output transistors are shorted.
