Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have a rather old (circa 1990s) Samsung stereo system (Model no. SCM-6500) and the main reason I keep it is because it had a vinyl player on it - but when I put the arm over the turntable, it doesn't start spinning. I was hoping for any general advice for troubleshooting to get it to work before I throw it away, just in case it's a technical problem and not to do with the age of the product. Any suggestions?

    Hey man, thanks for your solutions, actually my granda revealed that he had another old record player in his possession, which works perfectly!

    I'll try and see if I can get the other one working anyway though, just for peace of mind or whatever, so if I get any progress I'll let you know.

    Thanks again, I've quickly realised that this is a great site!

There could be a number of thigs. First, can you hear a motor start when you move teh arm over the turntable? If so, look for a broken, loose or missing belt. Underneath the turntable, the arm movement should be activating a microswitch to actually turn on the unit. Check to be sure that this switch is actually working.

update this with what you find.

I have a Kenwood KR V6090 tuner amp. Can anyone please tell me if I need a record deck with or without a pre amp fitted.


Hi. Some amplifiers provide power for a record deck (or you mean a vinyl record player). Some vinyl record player have their one amplification system, some don't. Those with the amplification system work fine on older amplifiers but others require a back-up power, like a transformer to provide power for the record player. You need to enquire with the store person on the type of record deck or record player you can use directly with the V6090. I had an early Pioneer Amplifier and a matching record player so that I could play the vinyl disc and LP's on full volume. Later I switched to digital Pioneer 7 channel. This couldn't accept the record player because it did not have a power substitute like the older Pioneer. So, when the record player plays, no signal is being sent to the amplifier and therefore, no music is heard, except from the needle.

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.

I have a Pioneer VSX-515 6.1 system and I am trying to hook up my phono to it. I am not sure which input to use. Right now the only input I have is my CD player.


Like many newer receivers, this model doesn't have a phono input. I guess manufacturers think nobody listens to vinyl today. You can still hook a turntable to one of the extra audio inputs on this unit, but you'll need a phono preamp. The output level from the turntable is too low to drive a "line level" input directly, and the preamp boosts and equalizes the signal so it will work properly. Radio Shack still carries a preamp; you can order online or find it in some of their stores. Many other sources are available online, and if you have a good stereo shop in your area they probably stock one. Plug the turntable to the preamp input, connect the preamp output to the receiver and that's it. You'll also need an AC outlet nearby as the preamp needs power.

Some DVD's sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it?


" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it? "
Hi,
I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago.
I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is.
Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog.
NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution.
1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS).
2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars.
3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input.
4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV.
5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input.
That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

Pioneer MT2000 Stereo M-error message for CD


it might be new cd's they have come long ways older players are not excepting newer cd's for some odd reason maken you go out and up grade your players
(thats just wrong)
but try this put in one of your older cd's if it plays that then its the new format cd's that just came out
i havent heard of conversioned cd's dvd's yet but everything bought in 2007 new or older than 2007 is being outsourced to new source cd's dvd's
my opinion if old cd's work then your going to have to upgrade to better system

No sound


The only fuse on you stero is for power it's a 6.3 amp 125 volt it'on the main board. I have the sam problem I found a resistor on the board that controls the power amps on the heat sink. A lab here charges 35 dollar bench charge and if you want them to fix it they will apply it to the job. I own the same model and i went to circuit city they had lot of different system on sell. So before i put that in to an old system i'll buy another one
