Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi. i have an Akai aa-8080 that powers up OK but starts switching on and off. there is a switch inside thats activating which is wired, connected to the fuse at back of receiver. this switch i think has something to do with 240VAC as if the electronics are being over loaded or something. this is pure speculation on my part as i knw nothing about electronics but as i have taken the lid off the aa-8080 i can hear and see this switch activating. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks. peter.

When you say it turn on-off you're not able to establish your audio out right? the possibility is that you have a bad speaker causing the system (aa8080) to trip. have you tried turning on without the speakers. can you try it first and then find out if it still does the same. because if there is something wrong in your output stage, you should not get that ticking/switching sound, it is not suppose to turn on (output stage) because that switching you can hear is actually your proitection circuit.

Our turntable is not producing any sound even though we have changed the speakers

Be sure the audio-out leads are connected properly to the receiver. They usually will work ok connected to the aux. plugs. Be sure the selector on the front of receiver is set to aux as well. Check the cartridge output wires to insure they are connected to the cartridge ok. If you have the receiver powered up and have the proper settings on the front of the receiver, you should get a little static sound when plugging the audio output leads into their respective input jacks on the receiver.

My Frigidaire front loading washer GLTF120AS0 stopped draining and does not appear to be clogged. Is this an easy fix or should I just get a new one. It is only 6 years old


If you are absolutely sure that the drain system is OK, then check the pressure switch, wiring and pump. The pressure switch detects the water level and determines when to start and stop the pump. The switch is located in the control assembly and it is connected to a long thin rubber hose that goes inside the tub. Try cleaning the pressure hose or replace the switch.
The pump must be tested reading volts or Ohming it to check the motor is good. Wiring is also tested using an Ohm meter. Check also the drain hose at the back. If its height is incorrect or if the hose is kinked you may get no drain. If all the rest is OK check voltages at power board.
Unless you have technical training I do not suggest carrying tests with power on. When you check the pressure switch look inside the control assembly. There should be a technical sheet with the description of the diagnostic cycle for the specific model. Clean pressure switch and try running a diagnostic.

The windshield washer doesnt work i try the fuse and its ok. what can it be.??

If the nozzles are clean and clear, and the lines are not pinched or broken, check for power at the connector for the washer pump, while a friend activates the washer from inside the vehicle. If you have power there, you most likely have yourself a bad washer pump.

If you do not have power at the washer pump (when its activated), then I would give a quick visual inspection of the wires and connector, and if all is okay, I would then check the switch inside the vehicle. If the switch tests OK, you are going to have to trace down an open in your wiring.

Most likely a bad switch or pump.

Mastercraft 18hp B&S lawn tractor Won't start with key BUT am able to "hot wire" by srewdriver blade across starter solenoid - recently put in new - with ignition swith to "on". Good battery, good...

If you can cause the engine to turn over by shorting out the solenoid then it is OK.Your problem is probably that there is no power getting to the solenoid from the ignition switch. Connect a test light to the control wire at the solenoid and turn the key, if it doesn't light then follow the wire back to the switch looking for a break in the wire.The wire casing may not be broken while the wire may be open inside so feel for soft spots where wire may be broken. Check your ignition switch is sending power to this wire when in start position, the switch may be faulty.

My ge profile dryer won't start.I checked the breakers and they were ok. Any other suggestions?

  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

  • If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

  • Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

HI I have a 4yr old neptune dryer that will not heat, everything else works, I have checked all I know how to check, the element is ok, I think the thermal fuse is ok the only thing I can find is a small...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

What you are describing could either be:
  • another thermal fuse but should read '0" ohms at normal temperature / condition;
  • sensor bar;
  • thermistor.
The exploded parts diagram starting here would help you identify it. Offhand though, it would appear to be not a part of the heater circuitry but of the general controller board.

To your concern on the heater failing to heat, some pointers:
  • there are 2 temperature sensitive protective devices in series with the heater. Failure of any would result to no heat;
  • the heater is activated by 2 switches; 1 in the controller board and another inside the fan motor;
  • below is an electrical wiring diagram that may be referenced to trace where the voltage would be missing hence no heater power.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Toro lawn and garden tractor will not start all of the stafety switches are working and the battery is charged but the safety relay will not energize.

Remove the two wires going to the switch and use a jumper wire to bybass the safety switch if it starts replace the switch, make sure power is getting to the relay, relays have two power wires one that activates the relay coming from the physically activated safety switch the other is a power wire that is activated by the ignition switch, you must have power to the relay with ignition key on.
