Slipping manual tuner selector

I have an excellent Goodmans 120 tuner amplifier with superb sound quality but I cannot select broadcasting stations . The chord attached to pointer dial can search/sweep in one direction but I cannot get the dial to return the pointer in opposite direction without assisting the flywheel by hand .The cord appears to slip.. I would be most grateful if somebody could give me some help in rectifying the problem . my email is len.dacruz @ gmail.com

Hi soundblaster

A quick fix first.... Some times you can apply a little extra tension into the dial cord by looping an extra turn about the flywheel. you may have to unhitch one of the other pulleys to do this, but whilst placing a little more of the tension in the spring attached to the tuning gang. If this is not successful, then you will need to restring the dail drive. Take several photos of it first, and draw a diagram as well. It used to be the apprentices job restringing the daildrives, very difficult at first, but alot easier once you have had some practice. To get replacement cord, you will need to go to the like of Vintage-electronics in the US, or WES components in Australia, Ebay sometimes has this sort of thing. I have a roll myself I could post some to you also :)

regards

    Hi Len,

    First up, a little internet safety advice. You should not give your full details in a post like this. It opens you up to people stealing your identity. There is a type of internet software program called a BOT that virtually crawl public forums such as this collecting information. You should never gives out these details on the internet, UNLESS you are connected through an encrypted server such as what you bank supplies. All a crook needs from here to access you the biggest part of your life is your date of birth. And from your birth certificate they can get your mothers maiden name, then your phone access to your bank account

    Now to your dial cord. I am sure that I can help, just got to find my roll LOL I have closed down my repair business a few years ago, so all my vintage repair goodies are stashed away also. But I need to get in and sort out the mess it is at the moment, so in the next few weeks, I will find it. I have taken your details, and will be back to you soon. Cheers mate. Hit the ask button to me and we can raise a new job to follow this through for you. I will ask that this post be deleted to save you info from getting out there.

Can not tune tv since change over


The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

Does this product have a built in digital to analog converter?


This tv incorperates a full digital PLL tuner. It does not need a digital to analog coverter since analog signals is no longer used. All tv stations now broadcast with digital signal. It will receive local broadcast stations just connect a goood quality antenna to the tv. You will need to do a scan and the tv will store all of your local broadcasting stations within range. An outdoor antenna works best for digital signals.

I have a technics SU-V98-KM8 Amplifier that turns on and lights up but does not have any soundd coming out of it. I have checked alll the cables and cords and everything is hooked up the way its supposed...


Your amplifier is turned on and all the indicator lights work and you made it sure that all the cables, and cords are attached to where they are supposed to be connected and yet you don't get any sound coming out when you play a music. Amplifiers have selector knobs for you to set where your source is coming from. Selector knobs can be set to TUNER, DVD, CD, and AUX. The scenario might be like this: your source is coming from a movie being played on your DVD player connected to your amplifier but your knob selector is set to AUX. Try playing a music selection from your CD player attached to your amplifier and set the selector knob to CD. If still there is no sound coming out you need to have it checked by a qualified technician.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Poor cound quality


does the XM use a radio station for recieving the sound or is it wired in to the vehicle. if you have to set a radio station so you can use the XM then what you can do it set the station to some other channel. it maybe to close to a real radio station or the frequency it to weak and you'll need a stronger signal

Pioneer premier deh-500ub presetting stations


Storing the strongest broadcast
frequencies
BSM (best stations memory) lets you automatically
store the six strongest broadcast frequencies.
1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select BSM in
the function menu.
2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to turn BSM on.
The six strongest broadcast frequencies are
stored in the order of their signal strength.
# To cancel, press MULTI-CONTROL again.
Tuning in strong signals
Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those
radio stations with sufficiently strong signals
for good reception.
% Press LOCAL repeatedly to select the
desired setting.
FM: OFF—LEVEL1—LEVEL2—LEVEL3—
LEVEL4
MW/LW: OFF—LEVEL1—LEVEL2
The LEVEL4 setting allows reception of only
the strongest stations, while lower settings let
you receive progressively weaker stations.

You can also perform this operation in the menu
that appears by using MULTI-CONTROL.
Selecting alternative frequencies
When the tuner cannot get a good reception,
the unit automatically searches for a different
station in the same network.
1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select AF in the
function menu.
2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to turn AF on.
# To turn off, press MULTI-CONTROL again.

! Only RDS stations are tuned in during seek
tuning or BSM when AF is on.
! When you recall a preset station, the tuner
may update the preset station with a new frequency
from the station’s AF list. No preset
number appears on the display if the RDS
data for the station received differs from that
of the originally stored station.
! During AF search, sound may be temporarily
interrupted.
! AF can be turned on or off independently for
each FM band.

Can't figure out how to get suround sound on tv with new home entertainmain center we do have suround sound on dvd and tuner conection just not able to conect to our panisonic tv


Look at the TV specification - does it include a surround sound receiver and amplifiers? The tuner may not be 5:1 capable - thus there is no surround on off air broadcasts. If there is then you may need to select the correct menu and turn it on - THIS WILL INVOLVE READING THE MANUAL OR USER GUIDES.
