Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Distortion & low signal

I have purchased a second-hand Fostex FD-4, set it up (normal mode) as per manual instructions. On attempting to record/monitor a guitar track the gutar signal is coming through at a) an extremely low level- LEDs only go up one or two with guitar at full volume & input/master faders up to 7/8 and b) distorted.
This has happened with both an electric and electric-acoustic guitar, I have tried swapping leads and all four input channels (including the two that have high/mid/low switches) I have tried lowering instrument volume and pretty much everything else I can think of.
The manual lacks a troubleshooting section and I've gone through the setup step by step.
Help!

    Thanks for the tip (I'll do it regardless) but I don't think its the answer: I've run a keyboard into the system (using same leads/inputs) and its fine..
    Could it be an impedance issue?

Use new connection cables with its new jacks------bring a contact cleaner spray and apply it in all of your sockets(the places where you put your jacks)and turn your system off put your jacks in sockets-----in----out many times-----then turn system on.--also apply your contact cleaner in all volume control and move it continuously.

Looking for a manual for a Fostex FD8


Look here: http://www.fostexinternational.com/docs/tech_support/manuals.shtml
for the link to download the user manual. For FD-8 there are links to PDF for owner's manual, supplement, and quick guide. I assume the owner's manual is what you seek.

Need to reset atomic clock to Virginia time zone; now 4 hours ahead


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each
hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.

Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
OK.

It looses time and the radio controlled feature does not bring it back to the correct time. I put in a new battery and it still happens. It is a La Crosse Technology Radio Controlled clock Model:WT-3101

In "Time Mode" when time is displayed, hold the "mode" button until the alarm flashes. Press the "mode" button again and the display should change to the seconds flashing. Press the st/stop button to change location between seconds, minutes, hours, date, month, and day. Use the lap/reset button to make any changes.
