Cannot play my ipod through my technics amp


You would need a mini jack to stereo rca wire. Insert the mini jack to your Ipod's headphones, then plug the stereo rca to your amp inputs. If it's a receiver, plug into any of the inputs (aux, tape etc) except "phono or turntable", then switch to respected input on the receiver. Be sure all volumes on both units are down during this process, then gradually turn up both volume to normal level.

When i have recorded something and play it back the recording is phasing


My first thought is your play back volume is too high and your file choice is wrong. While your playing back your recording, press the down arrows on the ring of buttons on the front of the recorder. The top and bottom button turn down the playback, the right and left buttons turn down the "recording" input sound. Set your file area setting to "all files". Better yet set your recorder to these settings it will work well for most recordings. I got this on a 3x5 card and check to make sure I got these setting before every recording.
1. Input "on" 2. Recorder onboard speaker "off" when recording. ( not a big deal I just do it) 3. "low cut" set to 80 ( this will help filtering house background like your AC unit sounds from lights and if out side some sounds from the open air ) example; 124hz is the note B. So we don't want cut that out. So 80 is good for indoors haven't used it outside yet. This next setting is key for phasing and squalls and recording at all and that number 4. 4. Setting "Area" to "All Files". ( Not sure what all files does but it started working after I changed that to All Files so I don't care why just do it.)
Once you get these settings right all you need to do is make sure input is "on", and watch the peak light which is left of the record light. Make sure the peak light doesn't come on very often, turn down your input volume just a tad if it is, just under that is perfect. I always got to think of this to and that is make sure when you playback you must "turn off" ..."In put". That input on or off and and input volume is what I am always thinking about when working with this recorder. I have had this recorder right in the middle of us with a drummer, bass, two sometimes three guitars and a conga player. All playing in a circle. I set the recorder right in the middle of us on a camera try pod about 4 feet high and the recording are great. Just watch the peak light and it will do surprisingly well. I love it and the band is impressed. I sometime put it front of us when we play in a stage straight line but the drummer is not heard as well. So stick it right where you are and watch the peak light so it won't come on. enjoy, I am. patbham

Unit turns on but has no output


Have you looked at the manual and understood every setting that could silence it?

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Let's work with FM as that is ONboard and can't be connected wrong. Does THAT work?

My Panasonic dvd recorder appear to no longer be receiving TV channels it was working and then suddenly not. I canstill view TV through my TV so Im doubtful that it is an ariel problem and I have checked...


Sounds like the inbuilt ATSC tuner has failed; if this is analogue only, it may not be worth repairing that. If however it is a digital tuner, it may not be economical nor cheap to replace at component level. It is up to you, if you want to submit this unit to an authorised Panasonic service centre, to get a quote and second opinion about it. At least then you could make a firm decision afterwards.

The DMR-EZ27K was a reasonable model Panasonic DVD recorder, and it's better than their DMR-ES15V.

Nice unit. The cheapest option I can suggest would be if it is an analogue tuner model, simply connect an external digital set top box to the respective inputs on the unit and record the TV that way (assuming the channels are not encrypted with macrovision). It's crude, but it will save you an expensive workshop hassle.

When i record videos with my easycap a crackling sound happens


Please check if the source audio output volume isn't too high and also if the audio input isn't set at max volume, these may cause that recorded audio get distorted, the solution is to set a lower volume to a normal level if this is the case.

Our church uses the Marantz Cd 633 Recorder. The problem we are having is that the playback volume of the CD is not high enough. You have to crank up the playback device all the way to hear recording at...


You have to isolate where problem is. Does a prerecorded disc play at normal volume levels? no? Check fade settings in menu. If yes, substitute another line level analog input from another device right at the recorders back panel. Test recording with that input and verify if recording level display can reach clipping level. If you have that and still have weak playback, again check for an in/out fade function being programmed. Also check volume selection in menu and try different settings, including 0.0. There is also a monitor mode to check input levels without using a test disc. Otherwise have unit checked by a repair business
