Salutations welove2scuba,

I would first ask how you are connecting the computer, it would be best to use a "Line In" jack to your computer if you have one. Using the microphone jack could cause issues as it is a powered connection and could be causing your feedback.

A good way to connect a computer to a receiver would be to treat it as if it were a cassette recorder. Most receivers will have a "Play (out)" and "Rec (in)" for a cassette deck, or DVD recorder and in some cases VCR's. If you connect the "Rec (in)" to the "Line In" jack, this should give you a clean signal with out any additional amplification to avoid interference.

Cordially,
Jon

Can i play records through my sherwood rd6108 receiver? When i try to play a record i get no sound no matter which channel i use.


Record players require a PHONO input on an amp.
Most amps no longer have this, so you will need to source out a pre-amp for the record player, and then you can plug the record player into the pre-amp and then hook the pre-amp into a tape, DVD or AUX input.

I need to connect to a Marantz SR-19 a record player How do i do it


On the back of the receiver there are connections, usually record player should be hooked up on Phono slot. If Phono is not available, trying using Aux or another slot that isn't being used. After hooking it up, remember the place you hooked it up, turn on the turntable, play a record, then hit the button on the receiver where the turntable is hooked up.

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)

Set keeps shutting down .this amplifier shuts down in about 30 seconds after turning it on


It could be that the amp's overload protection circuit is being triggered by a feedback loop or other problem, such as a shorted or bad cable connection. Turn off the power and unplug the receiver. Look for problems, starting with shorted speaker wires or cables. Then make sure the receiver's not still hot (wait 5-10 minutes to let it cool), and remove obstructions or anything blocking the top vents. Plug it back in and power up again. Immediately change the Source selector to something unconnected, and turn the Volume DOWN just in case there's a feedback loop (hum/squeal/noise that can overload things and cause the protection circuit to trip again). If you can see the display, go to a low level (around -50dB should be fine) before the delayed speaker amp output clicks on. Then carefully switch back to the problem source -- if that's the problem, switch off again immediately and re-check all of the cable connections at both ends, the receiver and the source component.
Make sure you don't have a feedback loop due to a recording device feeding back a signal. All VCRs and CD/DVD-recorders should be hooked up to the VCR, DVR or TAPE/CD-R "IN/OUT" jacks with IN being connected to the cables marked OUT on the deck and vice versa. (That confuses even us experienced guys sometimes!)
Also, no MONITOR video or audio outputs should be connected to the recording decks, nor should the TV outputs be fed back to the recorders. The same goes for the digital IN/OUT jacks for CD recorders; use only the same number IN as OUT for each component (For example, Optical IN/OUT #4 and #5 are the two digital IN/OUT pairs on the Denon AVR-380X series.)

It seems I keep getting feedback from my speakers...it was working fine for one day and the next is just started to give feed back....is this a blown speaker problem?


try hooking up a good speaker then if there is no feedback then it was the others, if feedback occurs with the good speaker it would most likly be the receiver or the speaker teriminal, like a stran of wire touchin from the positive to the negetive,

Power on but no display on Denon AVR 3705


By now the folks who asked this have certainly solved their problem, but in case anyone else has this same question:
If the color change from red to green on the Power button indicator light and stays that way, the receiver is most likely working fine, it's just that your front-panel display is OFF.
1. Check the DIMMER mode by pusing the buttom on the front panel -- it may be set to OFF.
2. Push the PURE DIRECT button on the front panel (or remote control) -- it may be ON, which turns off almost all of the front-panel display. (Alternately, change the AV source, which turns Pure Direct OFF.)
HOWEVER if the power light flashes rapidly, the amp's overload protection circuit may have been triggered by a feedback loop or other problem, such as a shorted or bad cable connection. Turn off the power and unplug the receiver. Look for problems starting with shorted speaker wires or cables. Then make sure the receiver's not still hot (wait 5-10 minutes to let it cool), and remove obstructions or anything blocking the top vents. Plug it back in and power up again.

Recording out of my Denon


No, if you have nothing on the tape out, there is a problem I'm afraid with the preamp section of this receiver. the tape out should always be on, no mater what mode is being used. Good Luck
