Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

We have a phonograpph with AM/FM radio, cassette and CD player, Model KA-1916. We have owned it about 18 months. The cassette deck does not work now. It played fine but now when you put in a cassette nothing happens. The machine is humming, the other parts work fine, but nothing happens to the cassette. The little wheels do not turn around when you push play.

The most likely problem is with the belt that goes around the flywheels of the deck. You would need to take the cassette deck out of the unit and check it out to be sure. If the belt has come off or is broken, it needs to be replaced with the same type of belt and then it needs to be put back on in the exact way it is meant to be put on. This is something that may not be very easy for you to do unless you have some experience with this sort of repair. Taking apart a cassette deck can cause more problems with it, if it is not put back together perfectly.

The best solution for you would probably be to take it in to a repair center. If you decide to try it yourself, I am willing to offer help, but I do advise against it if you have no experience with them.

Let me know if you want more help,

Dave

Why does the volume fluctuate when playing any connected equipment to my receiver?


You are describing one of the inherent problems in assembling various pieces of equipment into a complete system. Unless your Kenwood receiver has some provision for equalizing the various input levels, you will just have to adjust each one manually.

Kenwood ka 996 integrated amp. The standby light will dont turn off. I also need to see if someone will tell how everything should be hooked up.


the standby light should be on if the unit is not 'ON' if you want the 894 to turn on when you power up the 996, then you will have to plug the ac for the 894 into the 'switched' ac outlet on the back of the 996

Buy a 300ohm FM Y antenna wire screw the spade ends into the balance hookup and fasten the Y section on your wall, "higher the better" this will improve reception. The antenna can be purchased at Radio Shack or Tv repair shop.

Amplifier - TA-AX380; CD Player - CDP-C40; AM/FM Tuner - ST-JX380; FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver - STR-AV570X, and Stereo Cassette Deck - TC-W380.....all Sony. Very old system, do not have the manuals, they...


Since you have 2 receivers, you can either use the Sony STR-AV570X or the TA-AX380. You will need 3 Stereo RCA Cables to connect your CD Player, Tuner, and Tape Player. The speakers connect to the receiver you choose using the speaker input terminals.

Describe your kenwood manual "ka


Hi, Yes it is safe to leave this connection unhooked. The system control is what the stereo uses to remote control a cassette deck,cd,turntable etc... using the amplifier separately should be o.k. I hope this helps, good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa-Prodzilla

Select Tuner on the amp to listen to the tuner.

Kenwood KA-72B Stereo Receiver HELP NEEDED.


Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.
