The most likely reason for this is normally the output amplifier IC in the radio. If this is the problem, you would need to have the IC replaced. One bad speaker can also cause all the speakers to stop working.

If you have a multimeter to check the voltages on the speaker wires I could giude you thru troubleshooting it. It is very common for the amplifier IC to go bad in these radios. I work at an authorized Pioneer repair center and have fixed countless numbers of these radios. But before anybody can be certain of the cause of your problem, some thngs must be checked using a multimeter. Let me know if you have one, I will then tell you how to check what needs to be checked.

A repair for this type of problem on this radio will normally be too expensive to make it worth fixing. These radios normally cost about $100 brand new in the U.S. and a repair for this problem at a service center would be very close to that same amount, making it a better idea to buy a new one. If you do the repair yourself, it would only cost about $30 for the part. But you would need to know how to solder very good and be able to remove the bad IC and solder the new one into the radio. If you are not able to do this very well, please consider replacing the radio with a new one. You would first need to determain if the radio is at fault by checking the voltages on the speaker wires. They should all be around 6.5 to 7.0 volts. That is the normal voltage for speaker wires for these type of radios.

Let me know if you require more help.

My ripspeed incar dvd player has got no picture but has got the sound what can i do to make this work

First thing comes to mind is a possible update to the system. Have you had it for a while now? If so, you should go to the computer and go the maker of the unit. Check under software updates or downloads to see if there has been a remedy or fix that the maker has published, if so...then do as it says to do and see if this resolves the problem before you get into the actual technicals of the unit. It may need nothing more. I hope this helps.

Fm works, am does not

Check the antenna connection. A poor connection will often be good enough for FM but make AM reception so bad the the radios auto-gain circuits will mute the output unlike old AMs that would just produce loud static in poor signal conditions.

All you can do is trace the wiring back from the radio to the speakers, there is no quick fix here. To test the speakers touch a battery to the two contacts, the speaker will pop if it is any good.

Lightning audio b150.2 as soon as +12 is hooked up blows 25 amp fuse and the c2 1000uf/35v capacitors blow???????

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.
