Hey there, I had the same problem. Here is your step by step conclusion.
When it freezes:
- turn down all levels and channels
- hold the power button for three seconds until screen goes blank
- take to a place of fresh air (outside), as you and it may need to cool off
- If not cool in 30 sec. hold firm above head with 2 hands and ***** toss it as far as you can.
- Return for full refund, afterall........It came like that!

Tray will not open


Sounds like the main board is not getting through it's boot sequence. Cannot be fixed except to replace the main board, which will cost more than a replacement unit.

When doing analog recording, the recording level is difficult to control manually; however, digital recording is easy because it can be programmed in the set-up menu. Analog recording level can only be...


The make and model number are not showing in the post. Can you provide it?

Do you mean the level easily overloads when you set the input volume? You just have to carefully choose a point safely below 0 dB and make a test pass of the loudest passage while paused or just monitoring. Gain riding is probably not a good idea or very easy given the usual stiffness and small size of the volume control. Dynamic range of the recorder should be sufficient that you need not worry about losing your program in the hash.

Use of any processors in the analog path can result in sudden bursts of higher levels. I use expanders and other devices myself when recording to a Pioneer PDR-509.

I presume you have a manual.

My TEAC 3340S (no, there is no "A" prefix) has three faults: 1: Plays back on channels 1, 2 and 3 but not 4 - unless the "simul sync" switch for head 4 is changed from normal to simul sync. 2: Records...


From what you are describing the firmware or software in the receiver is distorted. The firmware is a chip inside the unit that tells it what to do when the micro switches are pushed. So it is getting the wrong signal from the firmware.

I trying to hook up an old record player to my Vocopro karaoke machine & I can't get any sound. What cables & where do I hook them


the record player should have a 2 sets of wires (one for power) and the other for left/right sound........you may need an adapter for this if there is no RCA plug in (if there is plug in AUX)

Humax PVR9300t keeps freezing, have received instructions from Humax on resetting PVR to basics which hasn't solved the problem. Is now starting to freeze during recordings.


Apparently there is a new Humax software update which will be released on 3rd March 2010 - leave your box on standby that night & hope for the best.
There are a number of us with the same problem. Curently the only solution is to power cycle the box (turn off & on again from the switch at the back)

I Bought a Goodmans 250Gb Digital Freeview box in


As it's only May, I would take it straight back to the shop and demand a new one/alternative.

If it is bust, and it's in warranty, I certainly wouldn't try and fix it as you may invalidate the warranty by opening the case to check wires etc.

My Marantz CP430 only plays on the tight channel, also it invariably doesn't automatically stop at end of tape but clicks interminably.


I suspect the recording problem is that the wires have broken on the back of the recording head.  The heads move forward every time that a cassette is played and the wires have to bend a little.  A common fault on many cassette recorders is that these wires break with constant movement.  I have a machine with the same problem, but getting to the head wiring in a CP430 is far from easy.

New receiver....old CD, record and tape players


Most new recievers don't have a "phono" input. If your record player is an older kind without a built in preamp, you will need to purchase a Phono pre-amp (about $25) and then you can use any input you wish.
