Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

Is there any good record players for under 100 pounds? (UK ONLY)


A brand that has a solid reputation but may be hard to find in your area is technics. I would think you could find one to fit in that price range. You could for sure find a Pioneer in that price range and they are not bad at all. These are vintage, not new, I am talking about but they will outperform most consumer made ones of today.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:

They also sell replacement remotes.

There are several available cheaper on eBay . Search "HT-6500 remote" and check the 'include description' box.

Can I tune in my samsung 2-3 year old TV to an old non-digital VCR?


This would be easier to answer if you had included model numbers of both. Check the connectors on each and you should find color-coded connectors marked with matching inputs & outputs. You will need to connect the outputs of the VCR to the matching inputs of the TV. The signal coming from the VCR will, of course, be analog so you may need to set the TV on channel 3 or 4 and select the appropriate inputs of the TV via the main menu. It should state 'Analog.' If you are concerned about keeping stereo signals on the proper sides, red=right, white=left.

Mission 780s (from early 1990s) tweeter gone?


Hi there.
Do you have the make and number on the back of the magnet?
Check if the tweeter is at all available on the net!
To have it repaired is also an option.

My GE Profile Dishwasher circa mid 1990s will not completely drain. I took the drain cage off and found pieces of broken glass and old food remnants in it. I used a shop vac to **** it all out....


Sounds like there is. It is common to find objects or small pieces of cloth stuck in the water pump. Remove the water pump and disassemble it and reinstall it. Or purchase a new water pump and replace the old pump.

Is it possible to connect turntables and mixer to Acoustic Wave Music System 2 through the Aux, and simultaneously play a backing CD so that both can be heard? Eg, scratching vinyl over a hip hop beats CD.


Yes.

A traditional turntable requires a preamp inline with it to PRE amplify the minute signal produced by it's cartridge. Most setero receivers and preamps have Phono connection and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Many mixers out there have a Phono section or two, too, so your mixer will determine what you can do with vinyl.

Some of the newer turntables come with selectable internal preamplification to solve the lack of it in modern equipment.

The mixer can send its output to the Aux input on the AWMS-2.

If you have only the internal CD player I don't think you will be able to do what you want. Reason: the AWMS-2 doesn't have a traditional Tape Monitor circuit which would allow its own internal program (including AM/FM) to exit to your mixer and come back in via the AUX. Selecting AUX disables its output. Thgis is to preevent a potential feedback loop. The AWMS wasn't designed for people who want or can control complexity in their listening.

If you have the external 5-CD changer or another CD source, you would be able to run all that through the mixer prior to its entry into the AWMS-2.

Hook-up tv to stereo


You will require a sound system and TV that is compatible. I would not suggest to start modifying your sound system and TV. There are serious safety issues involved. There will also be the complexity of designing circuits to have proper impedance matching, input selection, and safe electrical isolation between the devices.

When buying new equipment, it is normal that at some time you will hve to keep up with the times.
