Question about Emerson AV101 System

2 Answers

Display but no sound

I have an Emerson AV101C system that is responding to the different commands as shown on the display panel, except that the CD/DVD drawer won't open and no sound is coming out from the speakers even in AM/FM receiving mode. Is that a common problem, I'm suspecting a short circuit somewhere but where should I start from? I'm a retired technician but all I have on hand is a multimeter since I was using my employer's equipment when I was working. Thanks

Re: Display but no sound

Some stereo units have a function on them for an equalizer. What it does is when its in a certin mode you can turn on tape2 and it will send the signal threw the tape2 and if an eq is hooked to it you can alter the sound. Now here is the problem, if there is nothing hooked to the tape2 (not sure what yours maybe called if nothing is connected you dont hear anything because there is nothing to complete the circuit. Im not sure if your unit is like this but it could have somthing similar and its in that mode.

Unit powers up but display is frozen and no nothing after that. No remote or button response except for display off.

The display microprocessor(computer within your unit) may be bad. This IC is responsible for processing any and all IR(infra red) commands from the remote, as well as scanning all the push buttons on the front of the unit. If you're interested in having your unit repair, please visit me website at You may contact me there. Thank you.

check the voltage setting on the power supply that connects the power cord to the media center. Mine was set to 230V. Changed it to 115V and the video starting working.

Bose lifestyle 12 music center display inop

My display has not been working for years. Replaced c17 cap wich was 33uF 63 volts on lower pcb board( only one on system) . Old cap was good so this was not the problem. Replaced c16 wich was 100uF 25 volts with a 100uF 63volts. Display works, old cap read low. Both c17, and c16 are located on the lower left hand corner of the larger pcb looking from the front of the unit. Hope this helps.
