Can I connect a turntable to my Sony mhc nx3av system which I got 12/13 years ago and it is great. Will it be accessed via the MD option? And must I get a turntable with a pre-amp? Thanks in advance. John

YES, you can not only connect a turntable but also a VCR or DVD player or other analog audio sources using either of the top two RCA INPUT jacks on your unit. Now, for a turntable, you will need to buy a pre-amp because typically a turntable provides too low a signal level for most components to handle. These pre-amps cost $35 and up. Most turntables do not provide a pre-amp. Usually an amplifier or receiver will contain the pre-amp and have PHONO inputs specifically for a turntable. So you are correct, you need a pre-amp of some kind. Be sure to select the inputs on your Sony where you connected the turntable when you want to play records. Hope this helps.

I connected an aux to it i dont know how to like put it in aux mode i cant find it


The MHC-GX9900 has several audio input ports (RCA L/R) on the back of the unit. Press the TV or Video/MD buttons on the left side of the amplifier part of the unit. Alternatively, these are accessed in turn by repeatedly pressing the Function button on the remote. The TV input is the top one of the pair of inputs. The front ports are audio out to headphones and a pair of microphone in ports.

I hope this helps.

Sir my sony stereo system showing "protect push power" how i troubleshoot the problem please replay fast


Protect Push Power on a Sony is telling you that you have an output short circuit and to turn off the player to prevent further damage.
Check the speaker cables for connection fault. If all is OK it means you have a blown STK Amplifier Chip. Will cost you about 20$ plus labor.

OUTPUT for the CD only. See page 48 and 58.

See Page 40.

"AUX" is just a generic label for any Line Level Input. On this unit that would be Video/MD (Audio In) or TV (Audio In).

WHY DOSENT THE FAN WORK


The fan only kicks in when a threshold current is drawn by the system. under normal operation it is not turning. Crank up the volume and you'll notice the fan fires. You wouldn't notice this since the system is so friggin loud!!

Sony MHC-NX3AV wont let me change cds. It just jams up ?


I had a similar problem, but this required a sony representative to fix it. I suspect that the track system the CD elevator uses has come out of place. Unless you know the internal workings of the machine, I would not suggest attempting this by yourself. Needless to say, damage to yourself or the machine could result.

See if you are under warranty and contact sony direct. This would be fixed for free, if you are, but it may mean being without your machine for a week or two.
