Polarity of cassette player

Hi!  We're trying to identify the polarity of an old GE 3-5025A cassette player so that we can properly install a replacement universal power adapter and not destroy the cassette player.
Do you know this model's polarity?
thanks,
Kate Lucchese

Cassette players usually have a little rubber band that connects the motor to the spindles. If everything else is fine, I would suggest seeing if it slipped off somehow (or got cracked and snapped)

How do I re connect my equipment after a move?


Your input's that you need to use are labeled on the rear of the chassis. Make ALL of your connections with the power cord unplugged.
The connection types for each component that you'd like to use are also labeled. For the CD player you may see such connections as coax, optical or L&R...you need to only connect one type. What's available depends on your receiver. For a cassette tape player however there will be only L&R, connect from the L&R outputs of the player into the L&R input on the receiver.
For your speakers, you have a couple of options depending on what you have connected to your speaker cables but the most important thing is getting the polarity connected properly. Not all speaker cables are color coded for polarity but instead have a marking on the insulating sheath along the entirety of it's length or may simply have one silver wire and one copper wire. You only need to make sure that the polarity of the connecting terminals between the receiver and speaker match; having the cables marked is only to make that connection easier...just connect one wire at a time, and make sure that your speaker placement position also matches the terminal you're connecting to.

RQ A200 cassette player stop working


If your battery polarity was reversed then there is a possibility that a protection zener diode onthe set could be short as a prevention. so you will have to check on the + line input to the set. If not the amplifier could have shorted depending on the applied power. Anyway you will need a good check onthe main board to confirm this but I think with a tech help, it will not be difficult. Hope I could help. Good day

What is polarity? & help with hooking up mp3 player to car?!


POLARITY MEANS +/- AND NOT TO REVERSE. FOR EXAMPLE ON A SERIES WIRING SPEAKER SYSTEM YOU REVERSE POLARITY EVERY OTHER SPEAKER SO THE OHM LOAD DOUBLES. OR ON ELECTRIC CARS SERIES WIRING DOUBLES VOLTAGE OUT PUT AFTER EACH BATTERY IS HOOKED UP.... BASICLY POLARITY IS POSITIVE ONE SIDE NEGATIVE THE OTHER MOST CASES YOU DONT WANT TO GET IT BACKWARDS POSITIVE TO NEGATIVE ONLY CONECT SAME+ TO OTHER + UN LESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING. WHAT POLAITY HAS TO DO WITH AN MP3 ADAPTER I HAVE NO IDEA...WAIT... DOES IT CHARGE THE MP3 PLAYER??? DOES IT HAVE AN ADJUSTABLE VOLTAGE OUTPUT SWITCH?? THATY YOU PLUG IN TO MP3 PLAYER??
