Question about Emerson AV101 System

1 Answer

Display but no sound

I recently posted a problem encountered with my Emerson AV101 Home Theater System and did not receive any answer concerning my trouble. I can see all the functions appearing in the display window and can switch from one to the other with the remote control, but there is no answer from the CD/DVD drawer to open so that I can insert a CD or DVD into it. When I switch to the FM receiver option, I can see the FM chosen frequency on the display module but there is no sound coming out from the speakers. I opened the case and found two small black plastic pieces at the bottom that seem to be coming from the drawer assembly. Since there is only that part of the appliance that has such pieces, I'm suspecting that they are coming from there. Can the drawer assembly prevent me from operating the system normally? Is there a way to get the circuit schematics from Emerson so I can find a solution?

Hi...I found your post while searching for the answer to the same question!  I thought I'd let you know what the tech support person told me, which worked immediately.  There is a button on your remote that says MUSIC with SRD above it.  Push this button, while surround sound speakers are on, and they should work instantly.  They are quieter than the regular speakers, so you might have to turn up the sound.  Hope this works for you (if you are still having troubles, that is).  The manual was no help with this subject.  So frustrating!

Surround System Subwoofer Intermitent

have u checked for loosened pieces in the subwoofer case ?
Most probably is the wire that connect on to the speakers membrane, that broke off from the glue it holds it ...

also check the filters ... (the capacitors , see if they are inflated,burned, or blackened, and if so change them ..)

Emerson AV101 System no sound

it could be one of two things.... the first is that the speaker selector is set to OFF. the other thing (also the more expensive one) is that there is a problem with the amp, and you either have a problem with the offset voltage on the output of the amp, or that the idle current in one of the output stages is too high. normally, a protection circuit monitors the output stages for these two faults, and if there's no problem, your speaker relay clicks in within 30 seconds of turning on the power. if there's a problem, the relay never clicks in. so first check your speaker selector. if it's done by "soft switching" (not a physical selector switch, but a microprocessor controlled relay) then you also could have a problem with the processor chip, or with the parameter storage memory (which sometimes uses a backup battery). sometimes the backup battery isn't a battery at all, but a very large (electrically, not physically) capacitor that keeps alive the parameter RAM. if the power is left off for more than 2 or 3 days, the capacitor will lose it's charge, and the stereo "loses it's mind". same thing if it's a dead backup battery. sometimes if the battery is marginal, you lose some settings, but not others or the settings get changed
