Speakers sound as though they are blown but when I removed them from the chasis they look ok with no tears or cracks. What else would cause them to sound like they are blown?

    Thanks Robotek, I haven't been able to get through ( time and busy phone) to the Apex service department to order new speakers. I don't have schematics so I am not sure I will be able to find the audio chip to see if it has a cold solder joint or bad chip. If I can get the speakers I will try that but if not I may just trash the tv since it is analog. I appreciate your help and follow up. Regards,

Hi Charlie

What happens when you gently press on the cone about the centre where the voice coil connects. If the speaker is scratchy going in and out, it will sound like **** also. This is caused by the voice coil becoming misaligned with the magnet center piece in side the speaker. There is no cure for a fault like this on that type of speaker. Replacement required unfortunately.

Seeing as you have it out of the TV, I would as a confirmation that they are stuffed, hook it up temporarily to another audio source, say a HiFi system or portable stereo, just to check them. don't use too much level as TV's only put out a couple of watts, and some HiFi's.... a couple of hundred :) if it still sounds bad (it wont sound great either whilst sitting in free air outside of its mountings), then it is faulty. The audio output stage of the Tv will have a faulty output chip, or perhaps dry solder joints about the output stages. Something that can be fixed if you are experienced with soldering circuit boards. Hope this helps you to sort it out. Ask me questions if you want, I am happy to talk further to you about the issue. Cheers

Blown speakers?

usually with a blown speaker you will get sound but it sounds like there is an abundance of paper very loose on the speaker, so if there is no sound at all try taking the box apart if you are familiar with stuff like this and check to see if there are any loose wires or blown capacitors

Check connecting and Volume settings. Speakers might be blown. This happens when high volume is played and speaker tears causing a poping and crakling sound

The speaker rattles. i removed it from the cabinet. what a monster! i see no visible cracks. the speaker appears to be made of plastic, not a fiber material. i'm probably pissing up a rope? i can

Not all rattles are caused by tears. More than likely it's the voicecoil. A quick test, push the cone in and out evenly in the center. If you hear a rubbing sound it's probably the voicecoil. If it is a larger spearker 10" or more, having it reconed would be cheaper than replacing it.

My QC2 right headphone starts to buzz, like a vibrating sound

It is a blown woofer in the headphones that is causing the vibrating. Because when a woofer is blown is will develop a small tear, this tear will get bigger over time and cause that "vibrating" sound that you hear. Lucky for you joenfrancis your headphones are still under warranty so they will replace the headphones for free. Hope this helped!

Sound went out on my RCA D52W20 rear projection HDTV while watching it.

ok sound on the rca itc222 chasis comes ofd one curcit board. This board is called the small signal board. but before we get this replaced we have to elemate a few things. one check you audio setings and make sure the amplifer is set to internal. also you speakers could have blown. and the connectors to speaker unlikely be loose. If these items are elemanted then the small signal board. a item that only technicians can replace. they have special computer interface they use to download data from the old to a new board when they replace it
