This instruction shows the most common causes of no audio problem in CAVS karaoke player.
The setting is as follows:
• CAVS Karaoke player is connected to an external sound system using the analog (Red and White) RCA connectors (left most) on the back panel.
• CAVS Karaoke player is turned on and playing a song.
• The external sound system is turned on and set to correct input/output.
When experiencing no audio, check the following settings:
1. In the control panel of the karaoke program, go to Tools > Settings and set the ‘Sound’ to “Primary Sound Driver”.
2. In the control panel of the karaoke program, set the ‘Volume’ level of music to ‘50’ or higher. Refer to the User Manual to find the Volume level control.
3. In the Windows, go to Start > Settings > System > Sound and set the ‘Output’ to ‘Speakers (Realtek® Audio)’.

E-Songbook receives the song list from the connected karaoke player. And if “My Server” in the karaoke player is empty (not loaded with a song list), E-Songbook will receive nothing and will show nothing under Title, Artist, or Index buttons.

Go to the Control Panel of the karaoke player. In the bottom left section, highlight “My Server”. The currently loaded song list will appear on the bottom right section. And because it is empty, the bottom right section will be empty.

Next in the bottom right section and click on the “Load” button to load a song list. Select a song list which is likely “Master Playlist” or “Master Library”.

After loading the song list, click on the X mark at the top right corner to close the karaoke program. Power down the karaoke player. Restart the player and the karaoke program will start with the “My Server” loaded. Test the E-Songbook for proper operation.

Also if the song list you are loading into “My Server” is named other than “Master Playlist”, consider renaming the song list as “Master Playlist” and loading it as “Master Playlist” into “My Server”. This is because the karaoke program, when “My Server” is empty, is designed to automatically look for “Master Playlist” and load it into “My Server”.
