SOURCE: hear sound but cant get any real volume even at full blast

I was playing around with my Sherwood RD 6513 and adjust the the output level to its maximum, amongst other settings. This limited my output on the amp to a maximum volume of 65 not 90+.. Anyway i pluged in the microphone and done another 'auto setup' of the volume levels and distances, and this allowed the volume to exceed 65 again!

Also if you have an external source such as a DVD player - i would assume you have already checked its output volume setting?

SOURCE: technics turntable plays but no sound with Sherwood receiver

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

SOURCE: keeps turning itself off

If Both speakers are working at a low volume and you turn it up and it clips and shuts off you have one of 3 problems. you have over driven your speakers and one has shorted the voice coil but still will work at low volume, its a overload protection for ohms short in receiver. unhook each speaker and turn balance to the one hooked up and turn up receiver if it shuts off do the same with other speaker to determine which side is bad. 2 speaker wires are touching at speaker or receiver. 3 a bad receiver output transister. Good luck.

Hi,

After doing all this troubleshooting on your receiver, Check if master volume on the surround levels are too low. Adjust master and surround level.

There may aIso incorrect selection of the input source. Select the correct input source.

If after doing this the problem still continue, it means the sound ic in the receiver is damage. the sound ic brings out the sounds from the receiver. You will have to open the receiver to locate the sound ic in the receiver and use the multimeter to read capacitors and change the damage ones.

Thanks for using Fixya.

CAN I USE SA-GX130 RECIEVER WITH IPOD


Yes, you can. Go to a local electronics store or go online and buy a cable (we used to call them patch cords back in the day) with a 1/8" STEREO plug, (also called a mini phone plug) on one end and two phono plugs (also called RCA plugs) on the other end. They're available in various lengths -- 12" is a good choice. We're talking less than $10 here.

Connect the RCA plugs into an appropriate pair of unused INPUT jacks on the back of your receiver -- CD, VCR1, Tape Monitor/VCR2 will do. DO NOT use the phono jacks. The red plug is for the right channel. You can leave the cable plugged in. Then whenever you want to listen to your iPod, insert the mini phone plug into the iPod's earphone jack, switch the receiver to the input for the cable, and start playing. You may have to increase the volume on your iPod to avoid having to turn the receiver all the way up (or down) to listen, but after that you can use the receiver's volume control.

Is the Phono output on the RX4109 considered a preamp output in to a Power Amp?


The phono connection is an INPUT and it is a low impedance circuit. It is easily overdriven because the signal that goes into it is very small. You plug a record player into it. Any pre-amp connections on an audio device are in place after equalizer controls. There are no pre-amp connections on the Sherwood.

You need to find out if your reciever has a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" built in. Many don't and it's no good putting it in an aux or tape socket. If it doesn't say 'phono' or 'record player' on the socket it probably won't have one. Don't worry you can buy one, which will restore the normal sound level.
If it does have one it could be faulty. They are often a single IC that has failed, but they tend to kill the sound dead when they fail, so I don't think that will be your problem.
Just put the words "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" into Google to find one.

Hello, I have found a Sansui DA-T550 music-system with AM/FM stereo tuner, integrated amplifier, cassette deck and turnable/gramophone (placed separated). It seems like the system is working OK. My...


Hi!

I have the same deck. Did it come with rammophone or are you using your own grammophone?
I have it with original grammophone and I don't need a remote control, I don't even have it. You just turn on your grammophone and it is automatic, just place the needle on record and it should switch and play automatically. That is if you have connected the wires right (two wires for sound, one for automation, all in the same area).

If you have separate grammophone, I am assuming you just need to place two wires into the separate phono channels and it should work. There is just no automatic detection, so you have to swithc to mono manually: There is a button on the right, beside Volume control "tape to CD" or something.

To play the tape, just simply push the play button on the bottom, should work, or you could try tape to cd button off and see if it detects automatically when tape is inserted.


Currently I have it taken apart and there is tape detection system apparent. Its quite automated reciever, which sucks, because all kinds of problems appear and it is difficult to fix.

On my Sansui, the tape player starts winding slowly when pressed play button. And the tape motor seems to be on always, even when the tape is not used, and the motor is really loud. --Need to find a solution to this problem. And I hate it switch to radio/FM every time the record stops. Plus the original grammophone doesn't work correctly, it is supposed to take off the needle when record reaches an end, but it just pushes the neelde to the holder... over the record..... "screeeeech".

How do i hook up my i pod up to a mcm530 philips stereo system?


If it has an aux imput all you need to do is get a dock (which will keep the battery charged while playing) or the cheaper way - by connecting a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono plugs- lead. The 3.5mm plug goes into the headphone output of the I-Pod and the RCA's go into the Aux imput of the Philips.
It can be any imput on the amp (except phono) such as CD or tape.
You will find that you need to turn up the volume on the I-Pod to hear the sound.

Phono plays lower in volume than cd and tuner. Sounds ok i guess but is about a quarter to one third lower in volume. Is this normal ? Can I plug phono into cd jacks to check if any better ?


Hello. As per the post before me, if you have a receiver with a Phono input(many receivers don't have one anymore) the output of a phono cartridge is around 30 millivolts, vs 300 millivolts for a CD(10 times the amount) or any other line level device. A Phono preamp, also has RIAA(recording engineering standards)Equalization that provides the proper equalization for a Phono cartridge. As per the other post, yes, it will sound very low, and unnatural sounding. If the input you are plugging the turntable input into, doesn't say Phono, you can purchase an inexpensive Phono preamp made just for this very issue. You can try Radio Shack, or find something of better quality on the Internet.

Dave

WE are trying to use the pioneer reciever vsx 453 for our computer speakers. Any idea where we might plug in our input cable from the computer?


Hi you will use the 1/8" mini output on the back of your computer and plug it into any input EXCEPT phono on the receiver.

I usually use one that is easy to remember such as the CD or Video 1.

you will need a cable that has a 1/8" mini stereo plug on 1 side and a pair of male RCA jacks on the other they are available on ebay for about $6 shipped or at radio shack.
