Question about Sony CDX-CA600X CD Player

1 Answer

CDX-CA600X Audio in sockets

The lead I am using terminates in a 3.5 stereo jack socket one end (into which I would plug the headphone output of my Mp3 player. The other end terminates in a pair of RCA phono plugs which I have plugged into the audio in sockets on the back panel. In the instructions with the head unit these sockets are named 'bus audio in' and are intended to receive the line out plugs from the cd changer (which I do not have). In the instructions it says that repeated presses of the 'source' button should cycle CD/CD,MD/FM. The CD,MD option does not appear,the source button just cycles between CD and radio. There is a socket on the back called 'bus control in' which I think must be connected for the set to recognise that something is plugged into the 'audio in' sockets, (I imagine these are what used to be called 'line in'. I need to find how to switch these 'audio in' sockets on to play the signal from the Mp3 plyer when it is plugged in to them.

Were is adio red and white for sound when laptop conects to baird 42 inch


Hi there,

Connecting a laptop to a tv is usually achieved by the use of an audio cable with a 3.5mm stereo plug on one end, and male Red / White RCA connectors on the other end.

Plug the 3.5mm stereo plug into your laptop "headphone" socket, and connect the Red / White RCA connectors to your PC-in audio RCA sockets.

If you tv's PC-In only supports the 3.5mm audio socket, then purchase a lead with 3.5mm stereo plugs on both ends.


Cheers

NEED INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP WIRELESS HEADPHONES FOR VIZIO TV


From the manual:

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio
source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source
has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the
supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and
white) RCA jacks.
2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN
socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter.
3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then,
connect the adapter to an electrical outlet.
Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position.

I have Radioshack wireless headphones with a 30 foot range. I cannot hook them up to my new Panasonic Viera 42 inch HD T.V. - The "audio outlet" is a square and the headphones only have red and...


hi there.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector.  It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT.  Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections.  The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.

The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket.  a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head.  It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.

 

In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks. 

 

If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.

If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.

 

With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".

 

I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.

 

 

 

You will either need this :

or this :

Sometimes the colours of connectors vary.  Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side)  and White to White or Black To White  or Black To Black (for left)

Headphone jack


You must have not plugged in it properly, force the jack till the end of the socket so it locks in with a click, then it will work fine.

Can this unit be connected to my computer so I can make cd's?


It can if your computer has a 3.5mm jack audio imput.
What you need to have on your unit is and audio out socket. But if it doesn't have one you can use the headphone output. Then all you need is a lead. If you have the output sockets you just need a 3.5 jack to two RCA phono plugs one. If not you will need a 3.5 to 3.5 lead.
If using the headphone output, keep the volume low, use the computer recording device to adjust the signal level. NEVER turn the volume up high. Again if you are using the headphone output set tone controls to neutral, otherwise you will have either too much bass or treble on your recordings.
You can use the computer speakers to monitor the sound. Or you can get a headphone adapter plug that will allow to jacks to go into the headphone output of your unit, so you can connect a pair of headphones, but as I said don't mess with the volume control.

Connecting to speakers


The socket on your player is an audio output. The headphone socket on a Hi-Fi unit is, again, an audio output. If your cable has a 3.5mm audio mini-jack (male) at each end, you can connect the headphone output of your device to an input socket, but these generally only exist in some in-car players, and rarely on home audio products.

If you want to connect to a Hi-Fi system, you are better off connecting to the phono-in sockets that you will find at the back of your unit, notably on dedicated amplifiers. You can then get a simple lead with a 3.5mm audio mini-jack (male) at one end and a pair of phono plugs (left and right) at the other end. This should cost no more than a few pounds and are available from places like Maplin or from specialist sellers on eBay.
