Speedometer makes noise when cold. how do I lubricate where the cable and speedometer connect?

old post

well , if the head makes noise its sure is not the cable.
99% sure.
use $5 stethoscope to cluster face, some needles scream.
hear that , as is common, its the ***** scream, of IM AT END OF MY LIFE, (needle bushing shot) btw no speedo shops in usa will touch this cluster, not one.

the cable can vibrate, and make a weak sound
but if rusted, inside, rust can cause any sound it wants.
thank about that. but will be in the cable not the head.

do not put grease in the rear of the head, it will migrate in to the head and wreck it.
use a new cable, it has non migratory grease inside.

"special it is"

the last one i did, had to buy 3 used heads to make one good one.
good luck on car this old, finding past that work.
both suzuki and geo no longer sells heads. so.....

Hello, My Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer pedal is having issues. I bought it around 6 months ago. When I first discovered the problem, it didn't work at all when turned on. It just made this feedback...

Make sure you use Alkaline battery and NOT rechargeable type... the rechargeable battery will NOT work in the pedals (their voltage is lower even though they are labeled as 9 volt replacement).

Other internal problems can be due to cracked circuit board or broken solder joints. These are very common as people step on the cables when plugged in. This breaks the connection inside. A fuzzy sound often occurs when one of the contacts is marginal due to bad solder at the jack terminals.

I have a RZC 298W RCA FM/AM tuner/stereo amplifier that I cant find anywhere. It works ok, except its fuzzy. I'm Just curious about schematics and what year it is. it looks like its at least 40 years old....

You could contact a tv repair shop, many shops have schematics that go back many years. You say the sound is fuzzy, is this fuzzy sound when your playing the radio or when you play something throgh the amplifer? If its fuzzy with any source the you might have a bad speaker or speakers. you need to be more discriptive of the fuzzy sound you describe. also. if this unit has a head phone jack, (which I doubt if its 40 years old). you could plug in some head phone and see if the sound is clear there, if so then you know its most likely the speakers.

I have the sony str-da4400es iv had it since november 08 and all of a sudden my speakers started making a fuzzy noise all the time even during movies

Many things can be happening to cause this noise: loose connections; ground loops; speaker cables smashed, etc. Disconnect all sources and speakers, clean plugs and connectors, make firm connections, be sure of the energy quality at your home. Most sound noises come from fluctuations on voltage and energy. Consider to invest on a power conditioner. Good Luck.

Car headunit fuzz in speakers.

my first thing to check would be the ground to the stereo. if your ground wire is loose, you will get that odd sound at most volumes. if that doesnt solve it, then you can go to a car audio store and buy an inexpensive noise filter that you splice into the power wires for your stereo, and that usually eliminates the radio noise.

Noise through car speakers when connected to amp

If the subs are making a humming or RPM sound check your ground on the amp , make sure its a good ground. Always run your power wire from battery by itself down one side of vehicle. Groun should be no longer than 2 feet. If that dont help you can buy a noise supresor that goes inbetween your head unit and amp through RCA's with a ground on it . Hope this helps.

I have hooked up a large amp in my ford ranger and I have turn signal and brake pedal noise (thumps) amplified through my sub

Are you getting the audio to the Amp from the Standard Speaker outputs from your head unit or are you using the low-level (non-amplified) outputs?

Amplifiers need clean (low-level) sound in order to work best. If you're providing audio input to your amp from the standard speaker cables that come out of your head unit, the amp will deliver poor sound quality & often engine noise.

If you're using the low level out's from your head unit, then try the following:

1. Make sure you've got clean power. Connect the Amp's power cable (through a fused link of some sort) directly to your car's battery. Don't attempt to tap in to the power from anywhere else on the vehicle (not only will you likely void your warranty if the car's new, but you'll also run the risk of screwing up your car and getting dirty power to your Amp). Garbage in, garbage out!

2. Make sure you've got a great ground (must be the same size cable as the power, must be securely connected at both ends, must be making a good connection to bare metal - I mean use a steel bristle brush or screwdriver to scrape off paint, clear coat, color, anything other then clean bare metal may not work).

3. Try relocating the audio cables away from power cables (both for the amp and other vehicle electronics). Example: BMW's have the battery in the trunk. The power runs down the right side of the vehicle, under the kick plate below the carpet kit. If you run your audio cable down the right side of a BMW, you're bound to get engine noise from the power cables. It's best to run the audio down the driver's side to avoid ambient noise bleed.

4. If you're sure that both 1 - 3 above are good to go, try getting a noise suppression kit - this company makes some of the best:

My iphone doesnt charge

Hi there!

There have been some reports of iPhone chargers going bad prematurely.  The test:
  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer via the USB cable.  Does it make a little beeping noise when you connect it, and then charge up?  If so, the issue is not with your iPhone or USB cable.
  2. Next, using that same USB cable, connect it to your iPhone charger.  Do you get the same connection noise and then does it charge up?  If not, the issue is probably with the charger.
Assuming you have a faulty charger, you are still well within your 1 year warranty from Apple.  Visit an Apple store ( Genius Bar (make your reservation online before you go, to avoid waiting around), explain the issue and how you tested it out, and they will almost certainly replace the charger for you at no cost.

Good luck!
