Hi. Im a complete audio/electronics beginner, looking for some help. I picked up this Sony stereo reciever for $20 and this pair of Aiwa bookshelf speakers for $8 For $5 more I bought an "audio y adapter" at walmart that is supposed to plug my ipod(normal headphone jack) into the reciever(red and white "RCA plugs") I put it all together hoping to have some decent sound for super cheap...but no sound comes out The reciever turns on, and seems to function fine switching between the inputs. It looks like there is little light by the volume knob, which i assume is supposed to turn on when its not muted, but its not lit. thought it might not be a light for all i know. The speakers are a little bit more abused looking, but I would expect them(or at least one of them) to make some sort of noise. I have them plugged into the "crimp" style connectors on the back of the receiver. black wire with white stripe is + and solid black is - right? auxillary cable is plugged into the back of the reciever in the "phono" input location, and reciver is set to "phono". Please, help me out here, I just want to play some music! I pulled the cover off the receiver and all the fuses are good. I dont know where else to look. Thanks in advance!
