I have just purchased a new marantz PMD670. When I record using the internal mic it records a 'humming' noise. Using the external mic magnifies the 'noise'

Hi wangkatja

There is little that the user can do to introduce hum to a pro recorder like this, so it will not be something you are doing. Does the unit still do this when you are recording from batteries. If not, this would point to the power supply having poor regulation. If the gear is brand new, I suggest returning it to the supplier and get them to sort it out for you. Marantz service is generally pretty good.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.

Hi. My sr5008 marantz isnt picking up 7.1 surround when in auto mode.


Might want to check the input. Very few sources are recorded in full 7.1. In auto you will only see what is encoded in the digital stream coming over an HDMI input. If you're using the component 7.1 inputs, you can select the 7.1 input directly using the remote.

My marantz tt 155 turntable won't turn. is there a turntable lock? or is the only other reason a broken belt? thank you.


Could certainly be a broken belt. Lift record tray and look to see if belt has fallen off or has basically fell apart. Belts can be purchased at Marantz.com. If no belt could be a bad motor. Same website.

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 use a laptop,an external hardrive,and a mixer amp what is the best way to record some one singing on my karaoke to be able to burn it to disc for them to keep?Do you have any karaoke experts.....


I would suggest you to use a headset (without mic) and play the karaoke for them so that they can listen the music through the headphone while they sing. Connect the mic on the mic plug on your computer and record the songs they are singing with rhythm of the karaoke using an audio editor like Audacity or Adobe Audition and similar softwares. Suppose if you play the karaoke on your speaker, then the music will be heard from the mic and it'll be mixed up with the songs he/she is singing. For best result, Record the sound/songs and save it as different file and mixdown the karaoke file with it later. Otherwise, you'll not be able to get good songs. Please let me know if you need further help.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hip shot: No one let's you record digital audio onto analog equipment (yet).

On looking at Page 26 of the manual, that is verified. (See the Notes). Use only the analog audio and it will probably work for you. The A/D switch decides which you will use.

Line in / Mic jack help


So we're talking PC here, right?

I don't understand what you want to record. Going from the PC Headphone jack to the PC Line IN might be unwise in order to prevent a feedback loop. External (non-PC) source and PC MIC might work but you would probably want to monitor it on headphones again because of possibe feedback.

Does your MIC work?

Right click the speaker icon again and select Adjust Audio Properties or open Control Panel and select Sounds & Audio Devices. Select the box to place the icon on the Taskbar for future use.


Right click on the little speaker icon in your Taskbar and select Open Volume Control, if it's there. From there you're on your own. I have a sound card so I don't know what you will see. Look around, there may be a bunch of audio outputs and inputs with Master and individual volume & balance controls plus one for your Mic. Make sure it's not muted.

My internal microphone doesn't work


If you are refering to the internal microphone on your computer then try this. Open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound waves in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure the microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder and try to record again. If this does not work your internal microphone may not be working or your computer may not have come with a built in microphone.There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.

My Marantz CP430 only plays on the tight channel, also it invariably doesn't automatically stop at end of tape but clicks interminably.


I suspect the recording problem is that the wires have broken on the back of the recording head.  The heads move forward every time that a cassette is played and the wires have to bend a little.  A common fault on many cassette recorders is that these wires break with constant movement.  I have a machine with the same problem, but getting to the head wiring in a CP430 is far from easy.
