If you are still trying to power it, stop now... disconnect the amp and remove it from the car, if it is under warranty, rma it... if not, take the case off the amp to expose the circuit board, and remove any fuses. go down to autozone and pick up a can of CRC QD Electronic Cleaner... it's 11oz and goes for 5 bux or so...

remove the circuit board from the housing, spray a liberal coating to the underside of the board, then flip it over so you can see all of the components, prop it up on something so that it can drain easily and empty the rest of the can onto the top side of the board, get into every component you can using the supplied tube... let it dry for a good 45 minutes, i usually put a quadded up piece of paper or a hand towel under it so that i can gauge dryness... when the runoff soaking the towel is dry, there is a good chance the board is dry...

after you are certain it is dry (may want to wait 24 hours just to be safe) re-assemble, replace any fuses, power it up and see if it works... if it does not work at this point, your best bet will be replacing it or taking it to a local electronics shop to get a repair quote..

water seldom actually damages components unless you power them on while wet, even then it is usually possible to heavily clean the components and have the device work again. this is the method i use to determine if amps and stereos are worth saving after water gets into our open jeeps or trucks.. if water is going to be a normal foe in your vehicle, i would recommend modifying a waterproof battery box or toolbox to hold your amp. In my vehicle i currently have 2 amps installed in a waterproof battery box and am using two 60mm computer fans in the top for cooling.

hope this helps

Does a technics stereo amp su-g90 have a stereo to play music

This device does not have an internal tuner. It is simply an amplifier. The buttons on the front labeled TUNER - TAPE - PHONO - DAT/VCR 1 - VCR 2/TV are selector buttons for additional components that hook up to the respective connectors at the rear of the unit. If you want to play a radio with this device, you must buy a tuner and attach it to the tuner inputs in the rear of the unit.

How to change a Dat file so I can open it on my Samsung tablet

DAT is a file extension that's mostly found on video CD. It is usually used to store MPEG-1 encoded video on VCD. This kind of video file is file format that are not playable in the default Android video player.
But don't worry, there are ways to make it playable. In this article, I'll show you how to play DATvideo file on your Android device.
To be able to play DAT video file in your Android device, you should need the help of a third-partyvideo player app. In this case, I suggest you to use MX player.
MX player is one of the most popular video players that can play almost every video format. It also play all resolutions that supported by your device.
If you don't have one, you can download it for free at Google play store.
Once installed, open the DAT video file with your file manager app and the video should be loaded and played by the MX player. However, you're unable to load DAT video file on 'My files' or 'Gallery' app, as well as 'MX player'. To be able to open DAT video file directly from your Gallery app or MX player, you should rename the file extension from .DAT to .MPG. For example, filename.dat change to filename.mpg. Once you're done, the video will appear on your MX player list and you can now play the video file on your Android device.

My TASCAM DA-20 Mk II DAT doesn't play back any of my tapes. It still appears to record OK, but there is no level meter or sound or track finding when playing back, though the tape seems to be run

Hi Julian,
There is a lot that can go wrong with these miniature helical scan systems. When I had units like that I packed them off to Russ at New Jersey Factory Service and they were restored. I am not sure about parts like drums at this point but Russ is your best chance to get it working again. He has corrected CDRW and DAT as well as just about anything Tascam makes and he even fixed some Sony units too. I know him as the counterpart to the Chicago Factory Service facility when it was open. He was the Manager in New Jersey then.

SUV500 2-Channel Amplifier: Hi! can I connect another technics cd-player,sl...

yes you can connect another cd player to the DAT input of your amp.
input connections like DAT, TUNER, CD, AUX etc (except phono) is just to differentiate between what sources are connected, the amp cannot tell what source is connected and will output the sound no problem.

as for the remote operation, if the 2 technics cd players are switched on at the same time they're going to do what you command from the remote together but you'll obviously be listening to 1 at a time.

LG cd player not playing the .dat files. None of the .dat files will play on my cd player

Can you copy the file to your local drive and play it ? If you can then it's no problem with CD Player. Which player do you have ? The file could be corrupted.

Tascam DA 40 DAT Machine ." Loading error "

The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.
