The relay contacts are most likely bad in the relay and will most likely happen again. If you know how to solder, take out the relay and look up the numbers on the internet and see what you can find. If not, try to find where the manufactuer is located and call them to see where you can get a new relay. Good Luck

Speakers must be selected on the front panel of the rcver, and tape ll monitor must be "off", or at least have an outboard processor attached to the tape ll loop. "A" or "B" doesn't matter, but one must be selected to hear program material. If all connections are correct and it still won't work, consider that the output stage has failed....accordianman

SOURCE: won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate

Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

First thing to check is the Speaker Select Switch. It will say, "A" "AB" or "Both" it will be displayed on the LCD screen as well. Second if that's ok, Check the "Direct" switch. If it's on, turn it off. Generally if it's on, you will see a blue light if it's on (most receiver's)

If you still have No audio, hook up your DVD to the "Direct" input and turn "Direct" on. If you have audio then. The DSP chip is probably bad and you should take it to a shop and have them bench it first to confirm. Hope this helps

Hooked it up to my receiver which works perfectly for other devices. Cycled through every setting on the receiver...none work. I just have the red and white hooked into the back properly. I am pretty tech...

The modern computers are set up like an amp with different speaker sets. Windows allows for this under normal circumstances, but when you plug in this turntable the computer fails to find the correct speakers.
- Goto the windows start button - Control panel - Sound - Playback - you will see a number of speaker options and at least one meter that is moving up and down with the sound which you can't hear at the moment. You can do one of two options to fix this.
1) Easiest option, but may cause trouble should you change or add to your physical speakers in the future. - Double click on the speaker with the moving meter, and disable it. A new speaker is then chosen, and if that isn't the right one then do the same thing until the right speaker combo is selected.
2) The best option, as it won't cause future conflict problems. - Ignore the speaker with the working meter. Go to another speaker and double click on it. - Click advanced Tab - Click Test - If you don't hear anything, then move onto the next speaker. If you do hear a sound, then this is the right speaker configuration for your computer. You may have more than one sound card, and likely more than one input. - Once you find the correct speaker, then go back to the main speaker window and single click the speaker to highlight it. - Near the bottom of the window is a pull down menu to make that speaker your default. Do this, and all sound will work.
I can't help you with the amp question, as my ION recorder doesn't have the red/white output jacks for the stereo amp. The only thing I can suggest is it might be the setting on your amp where you choose your input mode.

No sound and video

Video issue:-

Assuming the system power comes up, does the monitor power come on? Most monitors have a status LED on the front bezel that should show green, orange, or blinking if the monitor is powered on. You can hear CRT monitors power on with a gentle sound, though I can't describe it beyond saying it's the sound of a CRT tube warming up. Make sure the monitor is plugged into a good outlet by testing the outlet with a lamp or any other device that will prove beyond a doubt that the outlet is good. Make sure that the power cord is either permanently attached at the monitor end or that it is seated fully in the socket, since partial cord insertion is the most common failure for monitors with detachable cords.

LCD displays don't make any sound when you turn them on, but they don't have a simple power cord, either. Older LCD monitors are usually powered by an external transformer, which in turn is powered from a regular AC outlet. If the LCD display doesn't show any signs of life, make sure that the cords into and out of the transformer are fully seated. Some transformers are equipped with a status LED to show when they are operating. The power connection to the LCD display is often awkward to inspect, recessed into the back of the display. The important thing is to make sure it is started correctly, then seated all the way.

Sound issue:-

No Sound From all speakers
  • Check that the speakers are powered on.
  • Check that the speakers are connected to the correct ports on the PC. This is particularly important If the customer has both integrated sound and a sound card.
  • If the speakers have a volume control button - ensure that this is turned up.
  • Check that the Windows Audio service is running. If this is not running then many of the subsequent troubleshooting steps will not work. Go to Start->Run and type services.msc. Double cliick on Windows Audio. Select Start if possible and check that the Startup Type is Automatic. Click OK.
  • If the speakers are digital speakers then try forcing the sound card to use digital. Go to Start->Control Panel->Sound and Audio Devices.. On the Volume tab, click the Advanced button in the Device Volume section. In the Volume Control window, below the Play Control Volume slider, click Advanced. If this does not show select Advanced Controls from the Options menu. Select Digital Output Only
  • If possible try an external audio source like a Walkman, CD, or MP3 player (connect the speakers to the headphone jack)
  • Check that the volume control in Windows isn't muted or turned too low. See the screen shots below. Go to Start->Control Panel and double click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

I can't hear the sound

First troubleshooting steps, double check your speakers, wires to speakers and power. Next if it is onboard audio check bios with peripheral devices and see if it is disabled. Third device manager is your next stop see if sound card is installed and does not have any errors or exclamation points. If at this point the sound card is installed and looks as if running fine but there is no sound, the next step is double clicking on the speaker in the bottom right, go to options then properties and check mark all the other sound device volume controls and also check the volume control you can find in control panel.

My speakers r totally fine bt still cann't hear any voice.must b driver problem.what shuld i do????

There are some basic thisngs you can do:
Go to Control panel
Double Click on Sounds and Audio Devices
Make sure there is no check mark in the mute section where there is a volume adjustment for your speakers.

Also ensure that your speaker volume is up to an appropriate level.

If you look for the speaker icon beside the clock and double click on the icon it should bring up a sound tool bar with many sliders. Maker sure they are all at a volume that you would be able to hear audio. Also check to ensure that there are no check marks in the mute section of each catagorie.

Having done these steps if the issue is not resolved it could be a driver or the hardware.

Plug the speakers into your iPod. Any sound?
You may need to maximize the volume-control on the iPod *AND* on your speakers, but you should hear some sound, if the speakers are working.

Try a different set of speakers on your computer.

Make sure that you have not "muted" nor "minimized" the sound on your computer.

Make sure that the speakers are plugged-in to the "green" socket on your computer.

Hello at the frist time that i work with my loptob i can hear sound frome the speaker but when i reinestall win xp i can not hear sound from the speaker bou i can hear it from headseat

Hi there, it could be a couple of different things. First off, try reinstalling the driver to be sure. If still no success, double-click on Volume Control in the System Tray, once you're in there, Click Options > Advanced Controls, it'll now expand with the Advanced button, click the Advanced button and make sure PC Spk Mute is not checked, as it will disable the internal speakers but not the headphones.

Audio do not play

Unplug speaker connection. Go to Control Panel, double-click on "Sounds and Audio Devices" and on "Volume" tab make sure "mute" is not checked and that volume is sufficiently up there. If thats ok select "Sounds" tab and go to "Program events", select any Windows sounds and check to see if you can hear the sound by clicking on the arrow next to it. If you can hear sound its ok so then check your speakers connection to correct sound output jack and that external speaker is powered on.

Popping noise while computer is powering down. Any suggestions?

Lower your main sound volume. Double click the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of your windows.(was it maxed out?)

go into control panel /sounds and select a lower bass setting in your sound settings. You usually have a choice of rock & roll ( lots of bass) opera setting, classical etc.. choose one with less bass.

Make sure your LINE IN is DISABLED. It may be causing this static feedback.

You may have blown your speakers by playing sound way too loud. You may need to buy new speakers.

Thank you and Good luck. *s*
