Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I Know The speakers work because the radio and tape player are fine. The records, however, you can only faintly hear on full volume. I followed the instructions about removing the plastic shield from the needle etc. Can you tell me what is wrong? What I should do? It is more than 90 days since we bought it. thanks, kathy

Hi Kathy, record players put out a very low level signal, you need a phono input stage for the amp to handle this input. If your amp does not have a phono input, many new amps do not ( check your instruction manual) .. then you will need to buy a phono pre amp which will match the record player to your amp. You can get this from your dealer.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

I have a Magnavox stereo console: Astrosonic Series. The record player was playing fine until a month ago. The volume is now so low you can hardly hear the record playing

Since the volume of the radio seems to be fine it is doubtful that the amplifier is malfunctioning. I will check the stylus to see that it's fully seated and examine the wires in the tonearm that connect to the cartridge. If they seem okay then I suspect the cartridge may be bad

If you hear something faint this would not be a fuse issue.


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the
amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2
volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control
or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or
'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate
every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like
Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

I have a set of SUN-115H speakers that has a volume problem. When testing with DXDIAG, you can hear the sound but it is very faint even with the volume knob turned to full. Any ideas? ? ?

Is the power to the speakers correct? Since these are computer speakers,have you checked that the volume on the computer is turned up all the way? Have you tried the speakers on another computer or portable radio of something?

The volume on my coby 600 mp3 player is very very low. i can only hear very faint sounds from the music file and most of the radio stations, although a couple of radio stations come in at a volume i can...

There could be multiple reasons for this. Is the volume at maximum? Were all audio hardware fully plugged in? It is possible the audio jack for this device may be worn down or damaged.

After looking at common opinion regarding this device, it would seem that a lot of people had complaints about it having low volume, perhaps this is a defect from Coby.

Low to no volume output from Integra DTR-5.2 receiver

most higher end integra's have a input level adjusment or input selection for each and every input. Perhaps you are not on the correct input, go to onscreen programming and check out the input level and input select - also try the tape in another input like tape 2 or cd. It will not hurt the receiver for a test. Also, if you are using the cheap cables from the manufacturer - try a pair of cables that you know work or go by some. BTW, you don't need to spend $40 for cables order them online through amazon or other store. Gold / sliver plated oxygen free are best.

Kenwood KDC-BT838U -- Low audio on incoming phone calls only.

Patrick -
I have the reverse problem.  Callers can hardly hear me. I saw a setting in the headunit that allows you to specify where the audio plays for incoming calls.  You can choose the Left Front Speaker, the Right Front Speaker or Both.  Check the manual and make sure its set to both.

Try looking for the reset button usually a little pin button like the ones on digital wrist watches hard to notice. If this is a home stereo are you sure the tape monitor button isn't on?
