Energy S 8.3 Woofer; blue led doesen't light up

I have the exact same problem with my S8.3 that I purchased a few months ago. It's just the blue LED that doesn't light up, otherwise it seems to output bass and the volume control works. Can I change the led? Any suggestions?

    I have the same issue. Have replaced the speaker with a new one. That worked for a few weeks. Then I got the official repair LED kit from Energy. Burnt out in a matter of minutes. This is not rocket science, yet Energy can't get a friggen power light to work. Grrr.

Bought a S10.3 in jan/2010, LED died a month later. I've repaired it by myself. After inspecting circuit, I've found that their design puts almost 14V of reverse bias upon that poor blue LED. These components are not usually expected to sustain more than 5V of reverse polarization. So, in my opinion, there is a design flaw. To make a long lasting repair, you just need to insert a general purpose diode in series with the LED, such as an inexpensive 1N4148 ($0.05). And, of course, any readily available 3V, 5mm, through-hole round blue LED (I think crystal clear should be better).

How can i reset my rohs aquarium led light


Be very careful. Mine started making a knocking sound and a few minutes later flames came out of the side of it. Thank God I was home and put the fire out. Light is only 5 months old. If you purchased fromaquatraders, I would request a refund and return it. They are bad about selling defective odyssea fixtures

Remote control slow to respond to Bush tv (LT42M1CFA)


Even though your TV s remote control emits infrared light, it might have not sufficiant frequency as it supposed to be. The fault with its resonator crystal inside the circuit board need replacement. It will look like this. Replace it with exact frequency marked on it.8_16_2012_4_53_50_pm.jpg

If the blue power light does not light up then there is a problem with the unit or power supply. As it is less than a year from purchase I would advise returning it to the shop.

I need to replace two blue indicator lights and I need directions


I have replaced several of the indicator lights in the control knobs.

Turns out that Dacor doesn't sell exact replacement lights (actually LED modules).

What I did was to go to a local electronics supply store and purchase Blue replacement LEDs and a current limiting resistor to connect in series. Replacement LEDs can vary in brightness depending on your taste ... I chose a super bright LED which makes the control knobs noticeably brighter. The value of resistor will vary depending on the LED you choose (brighter LEDs need slightly more current and as such the resistor value will be slightly less).

Once you've opened the range from the top (remove knobs, grates and burners) then remove a few screws and the entire unit opens with a hinge in the back.
Look over the LED light modules which shine just below each knob and fashion a replacement LED assembly.

Total material cost per LED unit was ~ $2-3 (LED, resistor, wire and heat-shrink tubing)
