I’m Having Sound Quality Issues

1. First check the cable running from the ZONE 1 potion on the player to your amplifier to ensure a firm connection.

2. Take a look at the bass and treble settings on the amplifier. Too much bass can cause periodic distortion and too much treble can cause your music to sound “tinny.” Too little of either can cause the music to sound “flat.” It is recommended that the bass and treble be set at the median point on your amplifier

3. Next we want to check the volume level on the player. The Playnetwork C500 is optimized to play at an output level between 60-80.

4. First press the down arrow button located on the front of the player until SETUP is displayed. Press ENTER. Press the down arrow again to scroll to SET VOLUME (Players using a second zone for music or on hold message should choose the appropriate zone to adjust, either ZONE 1 or ZONE 2). Press ENTER. Check where the current volume is set.

5. Depending upon the sound quality issue you are having it may be necessary to adjust the volume up or down. To do so, press the CHANGE button. The player may ask for an unlock code which is, using the arrow keys UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, and ENTER. Now simply increase or decrease the volume as needed. Then press DONE.

6. The player will tell you it is setting the volume and jump back to the playback screen. Please note, the player does not make the volume adjustment until the DONE button is pressed and it may be necessary to repeat the above steps.

7.  If this does not solve your sound quality issue please give our team a call at 763-595-8000 and select option 0 for direct assistance.

My Music Content Seems Stale

Here ara few tips for keeping your content fresh:

We recommend taking a peek at your current playlist selections.A selection heavy with top 40 top hits can be a major cause for repetition due to the limited licensed content provided by top 40 artists’ labels

Ensure that playlists in mix are distinct enough from one another so as to not overlap too much on content.

Finally, the issue could be that your player has gone offline, or is not updating as it should. If you think this is a case or if you have questions, our team of music experts are happy to help make changes, and music recommendations based on your brand, image and goals. You can always give us a call at 763-595-8000, select option 0 or chat with us here online.

Connection Troubleshooting

1.  If you’re not getting a connection, check to ensure the Ethernet cable is plugged into the Ethernet port on the player and ensure the other end is plugged into an open, numbered port on the correct router.

2. Once you have verified your connection, power the player on and off. The lights by the side of the Ethernet cable on the player should flicker green and amber. No lights indicate no connection and could be anything from a bad Ethernet cable, bad port on the router, or network settings.

3.  At this point, give a friendly voice solutions representative a call to troubleshoot at 763-595-8000, option 0 or feel free to troubleshoot further with this C500 Connection Troubleshooting Guide
