    That was exactly the problem. I was able to set it to a balance of ringing/brightness and am happy with the results. I really thought I was going to have to spend money getting this fixed so I really appreciate your help !!!! Thanks !!!

    I had the same problem with my NAD C525BEE CD player! Thanks very much as I just adjusted the trim pot (was black on mine not yellow, but the only one on the circuit board and near the front) to make my display dimmer and now I no longer hear the annoying high frequency pitch from the player. Thank-you thank-you thank-you!

Hi, From your description, it sounds as if the noise is coming from the circuit that controls the display backlight. If I recall correctly, the C520 has an EL backlight just like the C521 (which I have one of). On the front of the circuit board, there should be a little yellow trimmer potentiometer that controls the brightness of the display. It may be that the noise will go away if the brightness is turned down some. If  the noise varies as you turn the controller, but doesn't go away completely, the backlight may need servicing.

Pioneer audio video receiver VSX-D710S but there is sound to the speaker, but no audio coming from the player


Try to check the audio setting of the player. If you user using optical or coaxial then the audio out put format setting should be Raw other wise it should be PCM. You will see the setting if you go through the menu of the player

Cd, tuner and all other functions work except the sound.


Replace the player it has failed, repairing it would not be cost effective.

Fix wind noise in speaker of my garrard 3006 mk 2 vintage record player,?


My question is, do you hear music when you play a record, or is only "wind" coming out of the speakers?
The player was build in 1964 with Germanium transistors. These transistors are known for their noise level. But in those days nobody noticed this, because all transistor amplifies had noise.

If there is no sound at all, only noise, it can't be that difficult to repair the amplifier. There must be some schematics around on the net. Be aware you need a Xtal PU element and it won't be easy to get one of these.
I found an interesting page on the net. It is a pity the schematic is not 100% clear.

Why won't my CD Player won't play CD's?


the laser that reads the cd is probably dirty - if you have a can of compressed air - insert the nozzle into the cd player and blast away any dust and debris - if this doesn't help - there are cd cleaning discs available at any major retailer - just insert the cd and it cleans the laser - worst case scenario - buy a new cd player - the prices have really come down - I replaced mine with the trim kit and wire harness for $100 - only took about 1 hour - but you do need to buy the Ford stereo removal tools (available also at any good stereo store)

Marantz how to connect 6005 amplifier to ipod


There are many solutions, I show two. The tip photo, shows a more expansive one. the lower photo the cheaper one. But both have two tulip plugs on the side for the amplifier and one 3,5 mm stereo telephone plug to the other side.
I tried both on a good stereo set, and could not hear different quality in sound. My guess, the quality comping from my iPods, iPhone and iPad is not the same as from my CD player. On the CD player, a better cable proved to give a better sound.

BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"


I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.
