Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I use a nice little program called Audio Cleaning Lab by Magix. I usually get very good results, but sometimes, and increasingly, when I create the audio CD, the encoding goes haywire. It'll start out fine, but somewhere into it, the response gets trebley and gets worse until it disintegrates into pure white noise. In the most recent instance of this, the playback was clean on the timeline for the first 6 minutes. Then, you'd begin to hear a spitty treble quality to the voice until things would get very bad by the eighth minute. By briefly pausing and un-pausing playback every six minutes, I was able to maintain a clean real-time output that I recorded "live". Outputting to CD within the program was not an option, as the processing, etc. to get it to burn onto disk created the noise problem every time. This has happened several times now, though not always, and I have not been able to identify the one (or more) variable that could be causing this. Any ideas??? Thank you for any response!! Peace, Steve

Id say its a driver or a hardware issue, I recently had a similiar problem with my soundcard, the sound would get worse and worse it was like you could hear raining from the soundcard. I had to switch to 4ch and back to 2ch to get the crackling and raining out. I haven't had the problem since I got new drivers for my sound card.

Id say there is noting wrong with the program, its most likely a driver or a hardware problem, try updateing your drivers and see what happens.

Bose sa3 amp, blew a fuse in it, replaced it and now it won't power up. Nice little amp, would like to find out how to test out what is wrong and fix it

If you can,check with your multimeter to see if the two voltage rectifiers are good.If they are OK,you may need to replace the 2 audio amplifiers.This will require proper tools and good experience.

My Amplifier is in good working condition, except for the volume control has gone weird Using the remote, you can increase volume, but not decrease volume. On the unit, rotating the volume control...

Cleaning the contacts may help. The volume knob should pull off. Once its off use a non-flammable contact cleaning spray to clean the contacts behind the knob.

Electronics and automotive stores should have this.

How to hook up

Hi, I can help. First of all it's not as hard as it looks. the last thing you will do is plug it in by the way ( this prevents any popping noises while hooking it up. We'll start with speakers, standard table lamp wire will do fine ( sometimes called zip cord) it is also usually polarized for you ( one of the two sides of the wire will be a little ribbed and the other will be smooth ) this makes it a little easier to keep speaker polarity correct( i usually go with the ribbed wire as hot) always make sure the positive(+) on the receivers speaker terminals are connected to the same on the speaker( the stereo and speakers will almost for sure be marked with red and black to help with that-red being + and black -) Next hook up something to the antenna terminal on the stereo for radio reception-the terminals will be marked 75ohm and 300ohm, if you do not have an antenna for this or don't listen to much radio not to worry, I find just a simple little wire bread tie with some of the plastic end stripped off works nicely for most local stations ( you will know when any antenna you try is connected by the fact you will stop getting just static.) Next connect whatever you want to listen to through your stereo, example: a dvd player can be connected with the dvd players " AUDIO OUT " going into the receivers connection for dvd (these are called rca connections-and are typically red and white plugs at both ends) also if listening in surround mode you can hook up a single rca cable to the orange connector on back of dvd player ( marked maybe as " DIGITAL PCM/LPCM " or simply " COAXIAL"the other end goes into the same connector on back of receiver. If no orange jack you may have a squarish looking connection called simply " DIGITAL IN " there may be a few of these, ones for satellite,cable,t.v. etc. These are called a "TOSLINK" connector, they are a rather stiff fiber optic cable with squarish ends that plug into the source with the surround sound output ( example when dvd player is playing the toslink jack will be lit up a little with a reddish light) same with a tv's digital output as well as cable/sat box's digital out. so that about wraps it up-just connect what you want to listen to with either rca cables or the toslink connectors-output of device being played to input on back of stereo. And if you need to connect up a recorder of any kind hook up recorders "LINE INPUT" to receivers " REC OUT" rca jacks. Thanks for choosing FixYa, I hope this helps,write back to let us know how we did or if we can be of more assistance. Good luck, Prodzilla

Technics1210, the treble and midrange is very distorted, tried different needles and swapped channels but other deck still sounds crisp and sharp, been told it could be the leads????? from dan h.

hi there, yes there's a chance it is ur leads that are the problem.
Have you tried other needles/headshells in the problem deck?

A bad headshell connection can also possibly be to blame.
Firstly i would suggest that u unscrew the headshell and have a close look into the end of the tonarm.
The 4 little contacts in there are supposed to be sprung a little, check that these aren't "stuck". Sometimes they get stuck all the way pushed in (usually a result of dirt, age, or most likely - headshell has been overtightened).
also check they are clean, if not use a cotten bud to carfully clean them.

Not the problem? try checking:
- Check the headshell contacts are clean, i find buffing the headshell contacts by carefully and vigorusly rubbing the base of the headshell on my trouser leg (or a dry duster streched over my leg) an effective way to get them nice n shiny :-)
- Check the 4 little wires connecting the catridge to the headshell arein good nik + connected properly (google search if u need to check which way they go)
-if none of these help then I would suggest checking with a continuity tester/multi-meter from each of the tonearm springy contacts to the phono plugs. Each spring contact should bell through to one of the phono connectors contacts, check all 4 wires bell through, failing this put ur meter on ohms and repeat this step checking the resistance when belling them out, find 1 with a high resistance then thats your problem.
Hope this helped

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.

If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

Left rear surround channel sometimes doesn't work

If your receiver has speaker protection relays and they are intermittent due to bad contacts you might be able to repair them if they are not sealed. Most are but take a shot. They make small files for this purpose. Replacing them can be daunting because yo may not have good access. Tap the relay with the receiver playing and see if it helps.
