You can use a DS-A5 iPod docking station or a RCA Y-adaptor found at retailers such as APPLE, BEST BUY, RADIO SHACK, AMAZON, etc.: http://www.amazon.com/APPLE-COMPOSITE-AV-cable-ZML/dp/B004EWEX9Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331155139&sr=8-1You can use a DS-A5 iPod docking station or a RCA Y-adaptor found at retailers such as APPLE, BEST BUY, RADIO SHACK, AMAZON, etc.: http://www.amazon.com/APPLE-COMPOSITE-AV-cable-ZML/dp/B004EWEX9Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331155139&sr=8-1 .

Buy a 3.5 mm-to-RCA audio cable (you will probably need a long one). Plug the 3,5 mm. end of the cable into the headset jack of your laptop and the RCA end of the cable into the RCA/composite (R/L) audio input of your receiver.

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

I have a Boston Acoustics VR-500 Subwoofer with a problem. As soon as anything is plugged into the line level RCA jacks, the subwoofer produces a loud buzz/hum. I have tried connecting it to the subwoofer...


I'm thinking you have an open shield ground on the RCA input side. Connecting speaker inputs possibly restores the ground. Try connecting the high level inputs then disconnect the remote end of the cables (floating the grounds).

Then get out an ohmmeter and find that open circuitor or bad solder joint between RCA ground and real ground in the speaker's amplifier. Or.... if speaker ground kills the hum and you want to use RCA Line Level input to the sub, just connect one minus speaker output on your source amp to one minus on the sub's amp.

I have an old(30yrs) record player(separates). One phono lead has broken.It seems to have a seperate earth wire in the lead.How do I wire a new plug. Will an new ordinary plug suffice?


Here is the connection for the new RCA connector:
technical114_21.jpg
The extra ground lead (yes indeed there is one separate ground lead) you can connect it at any grounding point at your preamplifier (or at the ground point of the RCA you are about to replace). You can use any RCA connector you like, there will be no problem (assuming that the connections are correct). I suppose that you know that you need a phono preamplifier (with RIAA equalization) in order to use this turntable.
In case you need more details on that point, or if a problem come up, or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have to connect the RCA PLUG on a Center Speaker by Audio Research to the Center Speaker connections on my Sony Receiver, which requires two wires. What do I use... a RCA plug with ...? Thanks ...


A possible solution (but not the best) is to use a single RCA to RCA cable, however you should cut one end of the cable before the remaining RCA plug. Then you separe the wires, twist each of them and hook on your Sony receiver. A RCA cable is made of two wires or poles. I believe this will work. Good Luck.

If you look at the manual, there are steps detailed to reset the receiver. This usually happens if the receiver becomes very hot. Try resetting and you should be okay.
The other problem is short circuit on the speaker wires. Check the speaker wires again.
