Question about Astro -Link 10 Base-T Ethernet Standard Hub (CT-1017D) (ASTROLINKCT1017D)
We have just purchased a car with an Astor DVD player and do not know how to get the sound through the speakers. It did not have a manual with it and doesn't have any other serial numbers or description other than the word Astor on it.Can anyone help?
The DVD player must have audio and video output jacks if so use an RCA connector if the player supports this and conncet the other end to some speakers and a video monitor you should have picture and sound. This will determine if the unit is even working. If the unit is not working you may have to remove the unit from the car to do a proper inspection of the conductors to determine which ones are power and which ones are speaker and other functions. The best bet would be that the red and black are you B+ and ground return conductors. If you are able to open it up you will find that the wires go to various parts of the unit. Now this is where things can get "hinkey", I want you to follow the conncetion from the components connected to the heat sink. The heat sink will either be part of the chassis or a separate piece of finned metal the component that we are looking for will either be screwed to this piece of metal or pressed up against it by some kind of clip or restraint. This will be your voltage regulator or your final stage power amplifier which will connect to your speaker wires, you should have two of these components. At this point if you have traced your wires you know know what conductors are power and which ones are audio. Take these wires and connect them to your speakers. connect your power wires and turn the system on, you should hear sound from your DVD playing. iF not the unit is damaged and is in need of professional repair.
