If it was properly fused, the fuse should have blown without causing any other damage. If it was not properly fused, it probably caused the reverse protection diode to short and burned a trace on the circuit board.

Any competent repair shop should be able to repair it unless the reverse protection diode opened instead of shorted. If it opened, the damage could be much more severe.

Repair a flickering play button


It can be a bad capstan belt, bad motor or a power supply issue. I would have to see the unit to tell you what. I replaced motors in Onkyo TA2700 units not too long ago. The little DC motors in them do not last forever. But the units can be repaired in the right hands.

Hi i have a kenwood system which has a loud hum/buzz over the vol this is louder on radio basically unable to hear any music / speach the hum also is on all other selections cd tape aux record deck mo


This sounds like an earth loop, try discounting the earth in the record deck 13 amp plug. If this works reconnect earth and get a stereo isolating transformer to go between the output of the record deck and Kenwood amp. Remember disconnecting the earth can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing, best to just disconnect the RCA leads from the deck to start with. To explain an earth loop it's when you have more than one earth point e.g. amp with a earth and record deck with a earth or a CD deck. You can get the transformer from marlin.

Where can I have my 15 year old Sony Model TC-WR465 Stereo Tape Deck Repaired? The problem appears to be mechanical. The tapes will not advance on either side of the unit.


Depend on your location and willingness to ship the unit. The cost of the repair must also be weighed in. If you don't want to put $100 into it I don't think most shops these days will want to open it up. Dual cassette deck are notorious for failure due to cheap design. Look around at all the problems. I have been fixing units for 40 years and even at Sony and Sony authorized.
I can look at it at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area if you want. Google it.

Have a samsung DVD-V1000 VCR/DVD combo unit. DVD player works fine. been experiencing gradual decline of the VCR and now it won't play at all. will **** tape into the machine but can't get it out. any...


Always frustrating when a videotape gets stuck in a failing/failed VCR deck. Since all decks use a loading motor and gear system, it would be a simple matter of gaining access to the terminal pins of the loading motor (assuming you can see these from the top of the deck) and applying 9V DC voltage to 'unwind' the loading mechanism - you may get a little bit of tape outside of the cassette, but at least it's ejected. If the DVD deck works as you say, you may be able to continue using this for a while.

If the loading assembly is toward the underside of the main deck, you may need to remove the entire VCR mechanism - then you can apply the 9V to the motor to unwind the gear (it is easier to apply a low voltage to the deck rather than use physical force to unwind gears - as you may damage them) - while leaving the DVD deck in the unit untouched. There should be 2 separate mechanisms in this combo - 1 being for DVD the other being for VCR - as long as you are careful when removing the VCR deck, you should have no problem retrieving your tape (with maybe a little creasing but otherwise undamaged) from it. Be careful when removing the top cover and front panel assembly; you don't want anything broken.

Since VCRs are becoming obsolete these days, it is hardly worth getting this one repaired by any service centre (unless you want to pay a fortune, which is usually more than the retail price of a new combo unit). It's up to you.

NOTE: you cannot operate this unit with the VCR deck disconnected from the motherboard (you will get an annoying error display with the VCR removed). Once you have successfully removed your tape from it, reconnect the VCR mechanism to the board - but do not use it - just use the DVD part if that is still OK. Refit the covers, plug machine into power. Done!

You need a lot of patience to undertake the abovementioned action. Fingers crossed.

Don't know how to install equalizer. Where does


hi input wiring hooks up to speaker wire outputs on the stereo. in 2008 chrysler has no ignition or accessory outputs. everything is digital, if you use a trunkloc from PAC electronics you will be able to hookup your outputs from the deck into this unit and it will provide you with the RCA, and remote power output needed for your system to operate. the factory deck should have battery and ground at the plug but no acc.

The word "protect" appears on my screen and shuts my unit off; what should I do.


Sounds like you have either a speaker wire exposed and/or crossed. Or speakers that are capable of too much wattage/ohms resistance for the receiver to match.
