    checked antenna cable; looks alright. had some music out then all just faded away. Same thing happened with tape player side. Can't quite get all the way to where antenna cable hooks to windshield antenna, but shouldn't the player still send out tunes?

  • grapegirl3 Jul 10, 2008

    Still not sure the antenna is the problem. power to the unit, but won't keep playing. haven't tried to clean the player yet. Can't figure out what all the wires go to or from.

Hi,

Based on your description/post:
fading sound - probably an internal fault on the Audiovox AV958 or loose grounding;
wiring - The wiring to my knowledge follows the standard GM. Yellow - switched power,
black - ground,
gray - illumination (connected to the park light).
Most are normally bunched in one connector that plugs to the factory radio or spliced for the Audiovox. Speaker wires would be light green/dark green combo and the other pair could be tan and brown. If the AudioVox uses the old output wiring system, then the wires would be green, black and gray. The black would be common to both left and right speakers.

Additionally, wiring diagram for a 1970 El Camino maybe found here and here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

If the tape player is having the same problem, then you are right, the antenna is not the problem. It sounds that your most likely going to have to replace the player, like the first respondant, Jaime867 suggested. I would be replacing the player at this point. It will save you a lot of aggrivation looking for a problem that will most likely end up in replacement anyway.

Hope that helps...

The cassette player will still be sending the audio to the speakers even if the antenna connections are not working.
I would suggest to check the wiring connections from your device to the speakers, if that appears good the other problem could be that the amplifier IC is defective and will need to be replace.
The IC replacement might not be a DIY project due to the complexity of the device and the dis-assembly can be difficult if it's the first time you want to do it.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

    If cables are ok try cleaning the head and tractor wheel with isopropyl alcohol and cotton, take care not to leave cotton stuck in the wheel or head gears.
    To do this you need to start the deck without a tape inside, it should fix the problem.

We are unable to receive radio stations on our recently purchase lcd26advd, is this tv set up or how it should be. The instruction manual makes no mention of radio stations.


Digital TVs or set-top boxes only receive the digital TV signals not the digital radio signals. To receive digital radio, you need a digital radio (DAB+) receiver. The ABC does broadcast two of its digital radio music stations-ABC Dig Music and ABC Jazz-on digital TV and they are available on channels 200 and 201.
If this is helpful a vote of the thumbs up would be appreciated

The sales person said i could receive fm radio on this mp3 player


When it's booted up use the +/- buttons to navigate to radio, press play/pause to enter the radio tuner, it's default station is 88.something , use the |<< and the >>| buttons to navigate stations, hold the player around in the air to fin good reception, look around in the radio menu and you can record songs/talk shows off the radio, be careful, if you're recording and you hear static, it will record the static. good luck!

No tuner output


Some home theatre receivers will not output sound until you ( LOCK INTO ) a radio signal, be sure you have a antenna connected and are receiving a strong signal. Unlike the older model you would receive static sound until you found a station.

Wire antena (that came with SS5 system) causes a hum


It is assumed that the hum is coming down the aerial wire it self....The hum should be eliminated
dissappear if you remove the wire from its connector at the rear of the receiver.

If this is the case then reconnect the aerial and try to find a radio station to listen to..

When you find a station you will find the hum dissappears as follows:

When there is no station detected the receiver tweaks up its sensitivity via the Automatic Gain Control, (AGC) and when this happens any thing that is detected on the aerial is reproduced at the speakers and in your case its just a hum.

I have heard this event lots of times and mostly its scrackles or scratchs or other weird sounds which come down the aerial while the AGC is flat out at maximum..

The radio station transmits a sound "carrier" and within this carrier there is the music content.

The receiver detects the "carrier" when you tune to the radio station, and then it sets its receive
level to the setting made by the volume control and then lovely music is presented at the speakers..

So in fact your receiver is working as it should be ,.,,, no worries mate....

Now if the hum is still there when the music is there then you have a fault, but as you havent mentiond this aspect your receiver is in my view quite "normal".

Called a shop in VA and their opinion was that the tuner section of the unit failed. Cost of the part, $80. Then, labor and shipping. I can buy the new model (GT320) for about $95. I opted for buying a new unit.

No reception sometimes


Either this is typical shortwave reception characteristics, or you intermittent antenna connection.

No sound


see in the manual if theres a way to retune the wireless system most all units do have a little control someware where you can put your cars stereo on to a station with nothing on it and then you simply tune and tweek the adjustment so it sounds good. if you dont see it go to where you bought it or contact the service dept in the owners manual. Good luck
