I want to connect a tiny mp3 player to one of those portable CD players with speakers (it's a cheap AWA brand) using the USB plug - but the portable won't recognise it. What am I doing wrong?

U can't connect those two because they use two different kind of digital frequencies. So don't try it! You may end up burning out One of the USB ports on the players

Please tell me how to hook up my Wii and my cd player and my dvd player to Pioneer VSX-D309 receiver


Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so on the back of the unit there should be labeled connections, AUX, DVD, etc. These will be your inputs.
If your Wii has RCA connectors (the plug like ends that are usually Red, White & Yellow) then you would connect the Red plug to the AUX right speaker input. The White plug to the AUX left speaker input. If you want to run the video through the unit to the TV, then you would plug the Yellow plug to the AUX video input. If not, the yellow plug with go straight to the TV. If you are using HDMI from you Wii, then you would plug that into one of your HDMI inputs.

You will do the same for CD player but using the inputs labeled CD or whatever you have available. You can use any of these inputs for any of your devices it just helps to know what is connected where.

The DVD player may be a different story. Depending on what type of connection you are using from the DVD player will depend on where you plug it in. If they are red, white and yellow...then follow as above. If they are red & white on half the cable and blue, green and red on the other, you will plug the red & white ones that are close together into the red and white audio inputs under the DVD labeled connections. Then the other 3 will go into their matching colored inputs. If the connection from the DVD player is HDMI, that will go into a HDMI slot.

Finally, connect the unit to the TV. Keep in mind that if you are using any HDMI inputs, you will need to connect the unit to the TV via a HDMI cable.

Hope that helps.

I have a Marantz turtntable, a Marantz CD player, an Eltax tape player and a Marantz amplifier with two Cambridge speakers, how do I wire them up please.


If you have a pure amplifier, there may only be one set of inputs, and one or two pairs of speaker outputs. The inputs are probably RCA plugs. Connect the CD or tape player to these. The speaker outputs are typically heavier binding posts or wire clamps. Each speaker should have one pair of wires. One for the 'Red' post, another for the 'Black' post.

If you have a 'Receiver' you will have several inputs to use and switches in front to select them. The CD and tape can be plugged into either tape, CD, or Aux inputs. (Not 'Phono') The speakers hookup is the same as for the amplifier.

You may also want to google the make-model of your amp to find a manual....

Trying to hook up speakers to Pyle Pro PD1000 stereo receiver w/built-in DVD/CD player. I believe that I have speaker wires hooked up correctly but when I play CD no sound. I can actually hearing sounds...


Hi,
I went thru user manual..there is no special way of wiring speakers..
pls check carefully the speaker connections again and the "speaker selector" too..
what about "MUTE" button ? it should be "OFF" ...
and try to test it on FM radio first ..
just in case ,if you need the soft USER MANUAL pls visit the URL below..

My son got a GPZ BD707B Portable DVD Stereo System for Christmas. When we try to plug in his MP3 player with the USB cord, the stereo system won't recognize his MP3player. Any ideas?


Hello, the usb input for this device is not actually an "Input" per say. It is strictly for use with a "Thumb Drive" To use an mp3 player you will need to go from the headphone jack of the mp3 player to one of the 3.5 mm Microphone jacks on the player. you can buy this cord at best buy. Hope this helps.

I am using a JVC RX6000 video audio receiver, and i hooked 5.1 BMB brand home surround speakers to it, and connected my ASUS media player that has optical output and used optical cable to connect to the...


Hi,
This is a common problem. Each input will default to analog. Even though you have plugged an optical cable into the inputs of the Receiver, you have to change that input to digital.
For example, if you connect a CD player RCA cables to the Receiver. The receiver will recognize the Analog signal at the CD input. If you unplug the Analog RCA Cables and plug in the Digital optical, the receiver will still be at it's normal default input for the CD player which is Analog. You then have to switch the input, using either the remote or it may be able to be done with the buttons on the front.
As soon as it is changed to Digital, you will get nice sound.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

I have an old SHARP HK-9000 Multi-purpose Music syatem...we cant find speaker connectors on the rear. The speakers are detachable and dont have input jacks, just bare wires. Where do they connect??


The speaker wire is supposed to be connected to a mono right angle 1/8" male plug. It resembles the same plugs at the end of headphones used for all sorts of walkmans, cd players, mp3 players... But the plug on your speakers is mono so instead of there being two bands on the plug for stereo, you need the mono variety, the one with one band. They plug into two small female holes located on the bottom rear of the boombox. You might see some small black plastic clips along the bottom of the boombox held in place by one screw. These things are meant to keep the speaker wire from hanging out from the bottom of the boombox.

I just bought some speakers and a receiver, cd player no instructions, how do i connect it myself


- Use a cinch- cable (red&white) to connect the cd player to the input (often called CD or AUX) of the receiver
- Use standard speaker cable (two copper wires per wire) to connect each speaker to one speaker-output on the receiver
- Plug in the power cables
- Select the right input (or source) on the receiver
- Voila! Press play on the cd player and sound should come out!

No sound from right speaker when mp3 connected through aux


Hi bustero78

What happens when you rotate the plug or wriggle it about. If it cuts in and out, then you may have a faulty interconnect lead, or a dodgy socket/plug connection to the player. If it works with headphones, I would suggest replacing the lead.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

PACKARD BELL CD/RADIO/MP3 PLAYER. MODEL PB OP 10


This is not for connecting an MP3 player, but rather for playing MP3-CD's. Using your computer and a CD burner, you can burn a CD with up to about ten hours worth of MP3s on it. The procedure for creating the disc varies depending on your burning software. In Nero, for example, you would select "Music" and then "MP3 Disc" and then select the songs you want to put on the disc. For other software you just select "burn a data disc" and then select the MP3 files you want.

Once you have a CD full of MP3s, put it in the Packard-Bell stereo's CD player, and you will be able to play all the MP3 files that are on the CD. THe advantage, of course, is being able to put ten hours on one CD instead of only 80 minutes.
