Help! Hi, my MP3 player is doing some very strange things. It is taking out the vocal lines of my songs, so they are all instrumentals! It turns itself off, wont let me turn it off and skips. It has been absolutely fine up until now. any ideas?

Hmmmm sounds to me like it is in Karaoke Mode? Lol, Is that a feature? I have found a manual here. www.p4c.philips.com/files/h/hdd085_00/hdd085_00_dfu_eng.pdf There is a troubleshooting guide enclosed.

Proline instructions

First try different headphones. If its still bad try the same MP3 files on another player, if its still bad its a problem with the way the files were recorded. If fine on other player, take batteries out of Proline for at least 3 minutes and try again. If still bad you can either replace it or get it repaired, its far cheaper to replace it. A used 2gb player is cheaper than a bus ticket.

Creative zen xtra 60GB mp3 player question...

First thing I'd do is compare the sound coming from your MP3 player to the sound of the same songs playing from your computer speakers, to eliminate any possiblility of the audio files being at fault (I realise you haven't altered them yourself but they could be faulty at source)

Then check the graphic equaliser in your player and see what the current setting is. Most audio devices these days come with a range of presets and these often include a karaoke setting so I'd check thats not been toggled by mistake.

Then have a play with your EQ settings to see if you can bring the vocals back up in the mix, vocals tend to lie in the 1-2kHz range of the audio spectrum so give it a boost in this region. You might also want to try cutting the bass end, too much bass energy in a mix can steal your headroom and lead to parts dropping out unpredictably like this. N.B. if your player only offers EQ presets rather than a proper hands on EQ then look for presets with names like Mid boost or Bass cut, even a general POP preset should be OK, just avoid things like Dance, Hiphop and the like.

How to turn off vocal on Emerson GM527 so that we can only hear the music and sing along.

Note that you MUST use the special Karaoke disks to be able to remove the vocal... it will not do it for plain music CD's. Those devices that CLAIM to remove vocals often do so poorly... they do it by subtracting the left and right channels which ASSUMES the lead vocal is centered between the channels... Those methods don't work very well...

The sound is distorted - for example on certain songs i can only hear the instruments, and not the vocals. On other songs i can only hear the vocals and half of the instruments, the rest of the music is...

sounds like either the mp3 player or the receiver have SRS (kinda like virtual surround sound) disable or modify this setting. search your instruction manual for more information. hope this helps.

Mach Speed Eclipse: No Vocals!!

This is caused by the grounding connection on the earphone socket becoming disconnected, either due to faulty earphones or poor soldering.

If changing the earphones does not work, then the only fix is to dismantle the player and re-solder the headphone socket connections.
