I was wondering if someone could help me troubleshoot my Crown CSC-950F...
First a little background:
The tape deck works and plays cassettes.
The radio works.
The phono input works (I tried the lowest volume on my phone's line out, to not blow up the RIAA curve).
The recording function, and aux input on the other hand don't seem to work:
Record - I bought a new pack of blank tapes, and tried to record while it is in:
- Radio mode, and then the radio sound cuts out as soon as I push down Play & Record, and then nothing was recorded when I rewind and playback.
- Phono mode same thing happens here with the audio cut out and no playback.
- Tape mode by trying the ole "testing 1-2-3" into the boombox microphone (both left and right mics). I will try plugging a microphone into the mic input tonight for a long shot.
Aux Input - Interestingly, there isn't a selection for "Aux" on the audio mode switch. There is Phono, Radio, and Tape. I have read in the following post that in order to use Aux mode you have to press record button?
But to be in record mode, you would need a tape in the cassette running the whole time? that seems very strange.
Now, I can't tell if i need to tear it open and start pinning out the board, or if I just don't understand the quirky way to use Aux mode.
Can anyone shed light on this situation?
