11 posts in this topic

Hi this is my first post and im new to MD in general.

Iv just bought a denon dmd1000 from ebay after alot of research and im having alot of trouble getting up and running.

In the manual it says to adjust input level until 'OVER' is no longer displayed... and i cannot seem to get this to work.

I really hope im missing something obvious and i havnt bought a dud.

FYI my amp is a technics SU-V660 and ive tried recording inputs from thr CD deck, tuner and also aux connected to my phone music player.

Any help would be really amazing!

Dear Sir, what do you mean by not working?

Does it produces any sound? or is it too tiny?

Sorry to ask, but did you connect to the right cable? or do you press the right button?

Because sometimes u need to press pause  & rec at the same time to get the recorder to trigger, before any sound is being outputed to the monitor ( heaphones and what else ), then press pause again to start recording.

Thanks

Im certain i have the wiring correct, and that my amplifier is working for recording as i have used it for cassette recordings recently.

If i am to turn up the input level to max and record... then playback and turn the volume right up i can hear a VERY poor recording which is almost inaudible to the ear.

I would then say that there is something very slight being picked up but its almost negligable.

Have you tried making a recording from a digital source? If so, was that more successful?

Are you able to playback any MiniDiscs recorded on other machines?

I only have analogue equipment so i havent been able to try the digital inputs unfortunately. And as this is my first MD purchase i only bought blank sony discs so i currently have nothing tl test the playback.

Its worth noting that the poor input quality i mentioned is the same when playing back what i have attempted to record.

Philippe: yes i have tried both with no luck.

UPDATE

I have managed to try from an optical source and the recording works as it should.

Im thinking it could be a failed electrical component? Also i have tried to find a full schematic for the unit but the only reference i can fi d has several pages missing.
