    Thank you for your detailed help. The red and black wires are attached to the unit from both speakers.
    I cannot find any grey and white wires anywhere..they must have got lost in the move. I will keep searching boxes and hope I can get back to you tomorrow. Also I notice there appears to be a round 'power plug" hole at the bottom of the rear of the unit..what is this and what sort of cable am I to look for. Does it have an adaptor..box thing. The CD plays fine..so the speakers must work. There is no hum or static when radio is on. I appreciate your help.

Hi! May you please move the unit on a different location? The signal may be poor that's why the tuner can't get any of the stations.

Ok, you have to look in the back to be sure that each of the speakers are hooked into the unit itself. If you take a look there should be a little inlet(kinda like clamps or something that locks down on the wires.)

After yuo examine the wires from the speakers there is also wires for the radio. They should be located on the stero unit itself and the wires should be a gray/black(can be differant depending on what they sold with that particular item.

There shgould be a "radio" outlet simular to the ones used for the speakers. plug these in(clamps or one you possible roll) and more the wires seperate each other.

Let me know about the sound first. Is there any noise coming from the speakers??(a hum or static)

    Hello again

    We will need to get you the other wires to get them plugged in. The other wires were for picking up reception for the radio. These can be picked up for a few dollars at a electronics shop. I can point some out on the net if you would like.

    as for the the power plug at the bottem. Is there are more you could say about it in terms of reception???

How do I connect an old 3-way toggle switch to my new 3-way dimmer?


Cookrobert- you have to determine wich wire is the common wire in the box (house). Look in the box and see wich two wires ore in the same sleave. (These will be your travelers, (more than likely a black and a red) the wire that is in its own sleave (black)with a white tied to other whites is the common. Now the dimmer will tell you wich wire is commom. Tie the tow commons together. The green wire is ground if your house does not have ground , cap it and forget the green, if your house does have a ground (bare copper wire) then connect the green to the bare wires is the house box. Now your to travelers on the house side will tie to the two travelers on the dimmer side. Once you have found the traveller's on the house side and dimmer travelers they can be flip flopped. It dosnt matter. Just as long as they are the traveller's it will work. It sounds complicated but I'm sure you got this. I'm a 30 year electrician. (master).. I'll be looking for your update my friend. Good luck

Iam replacng my home a/c blower motor. My unit hasa red a black and a white wire. My new motor has a black wire a blue wire a red wire and a yellow wire. I need to know which color wire goes to which


On the original motor, red was low speed, black was high speed and white was common. The new motor should either have a diagram on the side of it or within the box for verification, but the black SHOULD also be high speed and the red wire SHOULD be low speed , the blue wire SHOULD be medium and the yellow SHOULD be common. However, you MUST verify those connections on the wiring diagram provided with the new motor before you connect or you will probably let out the MAJIC SMOKE !!! The speed you decide not to utilize can just be taped off and zip tied to the bundle.

You made no comment about two brown wires, and if either motor has two browns, they go to the run capacitor.

I have a DC Z-92 amplifier,PD-Z82M CD player,PLZ-92 Phono deckand F-Z92l tuner, was working fine till moved house,lost manual on how to connect it back up again,can hear very faint sound from speakers but...


first make sure you have phonograph and everything else plugged in where it belongs. or better yet unplug everything and start over. plug in just one source or just use the tuner. make sure that the speaker wires are not shorting out on the back of the amp or at the speakers. if there is a speaker switch on the front (for speaker A or Speaker B) make sure speaker A is pressed in (if you hooked up Speaker A on the back (you may not necessarily have speaker switchs.) make sure when you try the tuner that it is tuned to a good solid station. If after all of the above it still doesn't work, maybe the move caused somthing to come loose inside

Which speaker wires feed which speakers throughout my house?


Since this is a custom install and the wires don't follow a rule the only way to find which is which is to disconnect all the remaining speakers, plug in light bulbs in their places and check every single pair till they all match and their corresponding bulb lights up.

Our Phone wiring is underground and the connector box on the outside of mthe house was done in1978. My problem is that I hit the wires and some of them were knocked loose from the terminal and now I don't...


green wires and red wires.......... that is line one. also solid blue and blue with a white stripe is also line one..... so tie the greens and blue w/white stripes together and tape off (if not screwed down to block), and do the same with the red wires tied together with the solid blues.

yellow and black is line two.....and so is solid orange and orange w/white stripe. then just fill in the blanks as stated above.
its simple, think of the wires as speaker wire in a way to simplify what you are looking at. multiple Pairs (+/-) wires color coded. if the wires came off of the screw down posts, just match up the colors like stated above on the posts and screw them back down.
