Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My Sony CFS 1020 is an older boom box with literally no problems, I just got it from my uncle. It's literally been sitting there since I was born, in his garage. All of it works, except it only plays and has power and stuff when I plug it in. When I had 6 good, working D sized batteries in it, and unplugged, it should have worked but it didn't... I need it to be able to run off of batteries because me and my friends are going to use it a lot to dance to and stuff... Please help. Any suggestions would be awesome. Also, if anyone could suggest any break dancing music on cassettes, that'd be cool. I don't know whether to put this under home audio or personal audio. I guess personal. Please respond soon.

SOURCE: 30 gig iPod after plugged up to computer completely stopped working

Hi,

In this case you can try restore :

Restore

Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are:

Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.

Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

For Mac:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:

Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

6. A message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator's name and password.

7. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

8. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

Or

Try to reinstall

To update and reinstall your iPod software, first download the latest version of iTunes.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Next, open the new version of iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer.

Select your iPod in the source list and click "Check for Update" under the Summary tab. iTunes will check to see if your iPod needs to be updated and perform the update for you.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

You don't have to convert or anything. Just choose a genre tag of Audiobook (non-plural). And your mp3 will show up in the Audiobook section

SOURCE: Creative Zen Vision M won't charge it's battery.

hi . look at the top of your player when you connect it to the computer. if there is a flashing blue light (you should look to the switch which turns the player on) wait for a few hours (player should be connected only to the computer not an external charger).

You might need a new batter, you can probably buy that online, just be sure the battery is the problem before buying one.

Broken aux metal end stuck in Sony boom box


If the center of the aux end is hollow, put a pin inside of it, tilt it inside to put tension on it, then pull it out.

A thicker pin will work best.

My sony cfs-w360boombox plays tape at high speed upon play, normal or high speed poition


there may be 2 possibles

1, the pinch roller is not going down and staying in the fixed when during playback, easy way to check power down the unit, press play and see if it looks firm, it will push back, if working right

if its loose, it may well have come off a little sping, and may well be an easy ish fix, by someone who know about cassette decks,

2, the speed adjustment has failed, there will be an internal speed control, which keeps the playback at a correct speed, if this has failed it may be fixable, but only by someone who can take it to bits and remove and solder a new one in, and they are very small and Sony items i have had have failed on speed control! too for me its a junker box

good luck

Bad transformer? Sony CFS-W338 boombox


More than likely there is a voltage resultor in the circuit that will take the 24V input and convert it to 9V internally. This voltage difference is not necesarily a problem. What is the problem with the unit that is causing you to check the voltages?
