Homemade player piano

So I got two pianos for free, one in great condidtion other than being out of tune and having a stiff action, and the other, a player, having a badly cracked soundboard and pinblock.  I salvaged the player pneumatics and bellows from the player and managed to mount it upon the other piano.  On each note bellows there were rods that pushed on levers to trip the action of the player piano.  On this one, these levers are about a foot and a half above the bottom of the action, because it is a console piano (shorter).  I've tried linking the bellows to the keys with hooks (which didn't work, it just pulled the keys off the center pivot point) and directly to the action, on the bridle strap hook.  I've tried different strings and two different gauges of wire, but they always seems to stretch, untie or to come unhooked whenever a note is triggered with the player, or with the keys.  If anyone has ideas on how to link the player mechanism to the piano action, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Splitter Box

Does anyone know of a splitter box of any sort that would split the signal from the output of a minidisc player? At present my band plays gigs with the use of a backing track with keyboards and bass on. Is there any way the Minidisc outputs could feed my onstage monitor and the P.A. mixer simultaneously? The small mixer that the MD goes into hasnt any aux channels or monitor sends with which to use. Thanks.

Mp3 Player Mod?

I'm not really sure if this is the right forum to talk about this. I did go to Tech, but I saw a topic about MP3 player Skin Mods here, so I thought if I could ask for some help. I have an Mp3 Player, it's cute, runs on AAA batteries and an SD Card. Here is the problem though. It lacks any sort of Display.  Like it's one of those screen less ones you find.  I do have a spare screen lying over from a cellphone, so I was wondering if it could be possible to modify the inner workings of my MP3 Player so that I can finally see the name of the song I'm listening to. xP

Cheap CD Player + Good Speakers = Not Very Load Music...Help!!!

Not really sure if this is the right place to post this as im new to the site but heres my problem. Im off to a festival soon and i always take my own music for before and after the bands. This year however im broke and only have a small cheap portable CD player of about 2 Watts. I have some nice big powerful speakers, but the volume for the CD player just isn't load enough and im only getting so much volume out of the speakers. Can anyone let me in on what i need to make an amp to boost the sound, or maybe something else that would help get more sound out of a small crappy CD player. Im not that technically minded and as i said i don't have much cash to spend, but im willing to give it a shot, any help would be appreciated thanks.

VLC Vulnerable to Hijacking

For those who use VLC media player, I recommend reading this article. For those who don't know what VLC Media Player is, it is a widely used media player which supports many of the codecs that other common media players do not support. Source: http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,143542/article.htmlA flaw in the widely-used open-source VLC media player could allow an attacker to execute harmful code on a PC.The problem stems from a buffer overflow that can occur when the player processes subtitle files used for movies, according to a security advisory.The vulnerability existed before VLC was upgraded to version 0.8.6e in late February, but the bug appears to have escaped the last round of patches, wrote Luigi Auriemma in a note."The funny thing is that my old proof-of-concept was built just to test this specific buffer overflow, and in fact it works on the new VLC version too without modifications," Auriemma wrote.Video files can contain a link to a separate subtitle file, which VLC automatically loads when it plays the video. An attacker could use the buffer overflow flaw in VLC to execute malicious code contained in a subtitle file, and thus tamper with a PC. The flaw affects VLC players running on Windows, Mac, BSD and possibly more operating systems, Auriemma wrote.The VLC media player is part of the VideoLAN project. The player is free, and it is released under the GNU General Public License. VLC can also be used as a streaming media server for a variety of platforms. Courtesy of: http://www.searchsecurity.com.au/topics/article.asp?DocID=1237777The flaws affect VideoLAN VLC versions 0.7.0 through 0.8.6. Users can fix the issue by upgrading to VLC version 0.8.6a or by applying the patch.Another solution from Torrent Freak: For now, the only solutions are not to run any subtitle files, or to grab one of the nightly builds. The downside is, however, that these might not be as stable as the regular releases.

Broken audio on mp3 player with vid screen - can anything be done with the unit?

Hi! A while ago, my mp3 player broke:  the audio doesn't work, yet the video part works.  I hate to throw the unit out so I was wondering if anyone has had a similar situation, and what they might have done to make the unit useful again. I could use it for storage (it's 2 gig) but it seems like a waste since it would have a screen that wasn't being put to good use.  Then again, without audio, any video would be as good as it cold be. Any ideas would be appreciated.  (I'm a novice at electronics - I'm hoping that an idea for its use will b e figured out - that doesn't require me removing the screen (since i am not that advanced in electronics) Thanks and have a great day! :)

Advice required for audio playback from an IC

Hi All, I'm new here so go easy on me :) I need to throw together a circuit to play an MP3 when a switch is closed (Think musical greeting card rather than iPod).  The fundamental issue is a lack of knowledge re: mp3 playback on ICs. Is there a handy light-weight MP3 playback chip kicking around? Presumably I'll need to provide memory, an amp and various other bits. Does anyone know of an SoC that does something this already? I've seen the SOMO-14D (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9534) but it seems to be very low quality and temperamental. Does anyone have any experience with this? If so, any recommendations? > Quality is important-ish - I know it's never going to sound like my Technics sound system but I'd like it good enough that a non-audiophile wouldn't complain. I'm guessing I'll need at least 128Kb/s for semi-decent audio. > Format doesn't have to be MP3 as long as the quality isn't _too_ low and there's an easy way to convert. > Small size (form factor) would be nice but isn't required. > If needs be, I can get PCBs etched _relatively_ inexpensively so that's not a major consideration. > Any suggestions for a good quality, small speaker would also be appreciated. Skills: I've got a degree in Electrical & Electronic engineering (but haven't touched a circuit since Uni) Budget: ~£300 tops (I'm hoping for considerably less) Time: Within a month or so. Many thanks in advance Basic

Finding a New Stylus

I have an old record player without a stylus. The player is a Sanyo JXT 6440, called the "Stereo Music System", and the playing head/cartridge thingamajig is labeled "MG-28J". It used to work perfectly, however, at some point the arm was allowed ti drop down onto the turntable, and the stylus was bent, and eventually lost. Where is the best place to look for a new (or used in good condition) stylus for an old record player? Would it be more economical to dismantle this one and pick up a $15 turntable at the Goodwill store?

Cd player turn table

So I want to try to turn a old sony cd diskman circa 1999 into a turn table for cds. My idea here is to have it play but I can stop the disk with my finger and hopefully get a skipping effect, the other idea is to be able to freely move the laser eye and have it still play while doing it. I already have it soldered up so that it can play without the case and have a 9 volt connected to it, but thats about it. Anyone have any idea on how this could be?

Toshiba Dvd Player Problem

This lady gave me an older dvd player (Toshiba SD-2150) and she had it hooked up at her house, but the cd started skipping about half way in, and it would contiunously cut out for 10 seconds then resume playback and then cut out again and so on and so forth. As you'll see in the pictures, I've taken it apart down to the laser assembly (only took me 10 minutes incase you're wondering). The apparent problem to me is something is wrong with the gear assembly that moves the laser head. When I turn it by hand, it moves freely for about half a turn then it feels like the gear is catching on something, and if I turn it harder it keeps moving, it's not stripped, but it almost "feels" like theres a hump in the gear or something. I keep looking at the gear and nothing looks wrong with the teeth or anything! I was just going to put 3-in-1 oil on it and see how that helps and put it back together.  Does anyone have any suggestions? *********UPDATE********* I tried many things with various tools I had sitting here to try and straighten out the one tooth on the gear with no success. However with the little bit of melting/bending I did and the 3-in-1 oil, I got it to catch on the gear less easily. After re-installing the optical assembly and testing it on my stereo with the cover off, it appears not to skip anymore, DVD's too. However, I'm still not confident in how long this "repair" is going to work. The best solution I think is to replace the smallest gear on the motor, but I cannot find one close enough.

I want to add an external speaker jack to a Dorchester Music Maker (record player)

I bought this sweet looking record player which also has a cassette player at Value World, Indy's largest thrift store. both tape and record player work just fine. It has a small speaker in the front which doesn't sound very loud. I'd like to add a jack where I can plug an external speaker to it. Is this possible to do? I opened the player and it has about a 4 inch speaker with only a red and black wire going to the pc board. I don't know how to solder and was hoping this is something I can do easily. I don't mind learning how to solder or if there are alternatives that's even better! I've been searching all over the world for someone who has done this before but nobody.. I've seen other similar things being done and I'm concerned if I should somehow wire a preamp or some precautions I should take when adding an external speaker. By the way, the speaker I'm using is a Bose Sound Link speaker. I would appreciate some help here. I'm such a nub.

Gameboy Color MP3 Player!!!!Ga

I have a request. I have attempted to make a "Gameboy SP" with a gameboy color and an altoids tin. Accidentally snapping the thing in half, i have given up on the project after hours of trying to make my own bit that'll fit those darned screws (i've succeeded and plan on making an instructable about it sometime in the future) and i finally got it opened. then i destroyed it. I noticed that the thing has the potential of becoming an awesome mp3 player because it has the headphone hole, a button for select, and whatever you need! Maybe someone could use an old ipod mini for the project because i've got one that i broke too. Anyway. To summarize, i would like someone to make a Gameboy Color Mp3 player becuase that would be extremely awesome and would make me happy becuase i have a broken gameboy with nothing to do now. Below is a picture of how i feel.

Computer CD drive into a walkman

hey everyone this is my first post(i never realized there was a forum untill now). Heres the idea: ive got a bag of computer parts and among them is an old cd drive. its got a volume control and a headphone jack built into it. my idea is to put a rechargeable battery on it, turning it into the nerdiest walkman in history. my knowledge of computers is only slightly above basic so i was wondering how i can get it to play and switch to different songs. can i do this by making connections on the ribbon cable port, or is this whole project totally absurd?

Super Complicated Code (playing music and moving servos at the same time)

Hey all! I'm trying to make a present for a friend and it's not working out at all :( (due this tuesday). So I ripped up a teddy bear, put some servos in it's arm, and a speaker in it's stomach. I'm trying to use my arduino uno to play tunes over the speaker while make it's arms wobble. My problem is that the song contains delays for getting the notes on beat, which means that I can't have other things going on at once. Is there anything else I can do? I'm stuck with just making it's arms move, then having the tunes play while the arms are still, then having them move again.  Now I did figure out a method to get the servos to move without using a delay function. That's at the very bottom void move(); I know it's probably about the worst way to make servos move slowly without delay but it works. I'm not worried about that. I'm just wondering how am I going to play music and have the servos move at the same time? Thanks! Here's my code.  int speakerPin = 5; int buttonPin = 6; int buttonPress; int buttonCount;  int leds = 13; #include int servospeed(100); Servo servoleft; Servo servoright; int val = 20; int val2; boolean state = true; unsigned long currentMillis; unsigned long previousMillis; int songLength1 = 7000; int songLength2; /*****************************************************************************************************/ /* Smaller value -> all tunes play faster; bigger -> slower.

Need Help with record player wiring/electrical

Hi this is my first post here I have a self contained record player. Its from the mid 70', in great shape and looks really cool. I want to use it to play records and also to play an ipod. It has a mic jack that I use to hook up the ipod. Everything is great except one detail I overlooked - anytime the the record player is turned on, the turntable i engaged. Picture it as the ipod playing nicely yet the tuntable is spinning the whole time. What I dont like about that scenario is that the turntable will be getting heavy use even when its not technically playing a record. So I am really hoping to come up with a way that to disengage the turntable yet still get power to the unit. I took the thing apart and inspected it last night. There are 2 and only 2 wires running to the turntable portion of the unit. My thought is that if I clip these wires and add a toggle on/off switch that i could power up the unit and then control the turntable separately with this new on/off switch. It seems kind of simple to me BUT I dont want to do anything stupid and ruin the entire thing. Also I have no idea if by adding a on/off toggle if somehow theres an unequal distribution of power that can cause problems...basically I dont know much!! so if anyone has any thoughts Id love to hear them! thanks so much. if anything is unclear I can post pics too if that would help. thanks so much! eric

Interactive Art Gallery Installation

Hi, I have an exhibition at the arts centre that I work at and one element of it incorporates music. Currently we have a CD player on loop, and this is frustrating some of the staff who have to listen to it all day.... so, the scenario I want is for member of general public to walk into gallery, when they get to the appropriate section they push a button which will play the CD, it would play the track then stop. If they (or another person) wanted to start from the top again, they either wait til the end or press the button again. (Or another option could be a motion sensor which, 'plays' the CD.... obviously it can't start from the top each time it detects motion! ) any thoughts ladies and gents?

flash drive music player

I have no idea how to make this, but i thought it would be cool if, instead of erasing music from your mp3 player to put more on you could just take a storage bit off and put a new one on. In essance there would be two parts to the player. A storage device (in this case a flash drive) and a audio player. Any ideas?

CD Player spinning device

I recently found an old AA powered Portable CD player. Upon dismantling it, I found 6 wires, since which I have tested and discovered their function. My question to you all is, would there be any danger to hooking up a larger battery to the two wires that spin the CD? I tried briefly using a 9 Volt, and the results were simply amazing. I have a hack or two that I could really use this for, and I wanted the opinions of people here to see if there was any danger to doing this.

my smallest computer build: HELP WANTED

Recently, I got an IBM motherboard from one of my friends. They gave it to me because of all the bad caps that were on it. Little did they know that I would find the caps to fix it. Now that it works again, I decided I should put it into something really cool. I had a dead curtis rcd847 cd player, and a motherboard that would fit inside it. I have everything that is needed for it to work: 256mb ram, a power supply, keyboard and mouse, a hard drive, etc. now i need help figuring out how i am going to get the power supply, hard drive, and maybe even a cdrom drive into this cd player. this is the point where i am asking for some help. i was thinking about making a base for it but are there any other suggestions for how do go about it? PS: the first picture is the motherboard, the second the power supply, the third is all of the bad capacitors, 4 and 5 are the cd player shell, and the last one is the hard drive

Making a portable turntable portable

Hello all, This question is definitely burning an I hope everyone can help out. I have a couple of portable turntables but only one is actually portable. They can all be plugged into the wall but only one can be powered by 6 "D" batteries. The mission is to convert/adapt one of the plug only ones to run off batteries. They are about AC 117v-120v/5.5w-6w. Is this as easy as soldering a + and - cable from a diy battery compartment to the circuit board. Or will something be needed in between the batteries and the board to make the power acceptable? Also how about adapting it to take a Li-Ion(or similar) battery that could charge when it's plugged in? This sounds like it would be more complicated though. Just getting one to run on batteries would be grand. Thanks for any and all info.
