You broke the ribbon connector that bounds your changer and tape deck to the sound processor (the black long ribbon that is permanently mounted to the tape deck) - the cheapest option is to get a new tape deck (around 20-£30 on ebay) or hount for replacement ribbon

The answer is simple if you want to listen to mp3 on your system and you purchased dv290 dvd changer you also need dv290 sound processor as they were coded - for example you have dv250 system with dv250 chager and sound processor you are only going to be able to see dvds and cds if you swap your changer to dv290 (plays mp3, audio ,wma and dvds) you also need to purchase dv290 sound processor as well - no need to change your amplifier or tape deck (the ribbon on the tape deck will be compatibile)
the lower end units were incompatibile with higher spec changers same when it comes to EH series if you have eh780 sound processor you are only going to be able to plug 780 changer or lower 760 770 etc... but 790 will not work with it unless you get 790 sound proc

You will never find those connectors, as they come with the ribbon cable, which is long discontinued. Rather than that approach, take the easy route. Just cut the ribbon in any place that you need the extension, add in your new ribbon cable, and heat shrink each and ever wire.

please double check your wiring again as if you cross the polaritys (+ and -) you put the audio signal out of phase, thus casing cancellaion of things such as voices.

The problem you are facing is that the record player audio outputs has a left channel, a right channel and an earth or grounding cable. If this grounding cable isn't attached, you are likely to get a hum sound. I would suggest buying a record player RCA (Ground simulating) cable or you will have to buy an inexpensive mixer that supports record players through which you can channel this record player. Once you have all these, just follow the white and red color coding to attache the right channel to the right socket.

Could be the floppy disk and it may need cleaning. Reply with age of unit, exact error message and have you tried other floppy disks?

It depends what the source of the sound is. If you are using a dvd player or hifi/dvd combo that has surround, dobly pro logic, surround simulation or cinema sound...it will have HDMI, Optical, Digital outputs. The newer items use the HDMI to send Audio and Visual signals to the Hifi. If not...you will either have to do the simulation on your hifi if it has that feature. You can also use the SPDiF or Optical cable from your source to the hifi. If all that is missing...the standard 3-way RCA cable (Yellow,Red and Black) will do where yellow is video and the red and black is the stereo source of sound.
