Question about Sharp CD-C472 Shelf System

Speakers Not Working

All the spreakers have quit working on my Sharp Audio Shelf system. I have tried all the various speaker settings (bypass, normal, etc) and nothing works. I can hear a faint hum in the spreakers but no sound. I have disconnected the speakers and reconnected but no luck. Its 7 or 8 years old and I hate to spend the $50 charge just to have it looked at. Is there a simple solution to this?

    Thanks for the input. Probably not worth fixing at this point.

Probably not My friend. These self type audio units use an audio output IC and if it blows out you must replace it. Its a soldered in device and is not a consumer replaceable part ,unless you have some know how on desoldering and soldering. This repair should run somewhere around 85 to 125 bucks to repair. Good Luck

Original speaker wires lost - can they be replaced with commercial speaker wire, and if so will longer wire lengths work just as well?

I checked my Sharp system and it uses ordinary wire for the speakers. The difference in length won't matter. $20 for replacement wire? They must be kidding.

I have a sceptre flat screen i bought 2 years ago (40") the sound just quit can hook up external speakers?

Read the owner manual or check all the inputs on the rear to see if it has those connections---it is also possible a surround system routed from a box (cable or sat) might work to bypass this issue.

and do not forget to check in the set menu that the speakers did not somehow get switched to OFF.

Before nothing sorry my english is bad i have a cuestion because my mini dont have sound

Thank you for apologising.
Have you checked that the speaker selection is set to the correct speakers? Have you tried radio tape and cd? Have you checked wiring to the speakers? Does the unit appear to be working but producing no audio on either channel? Have you tried headphones?
My guess is it is switched to the wrong speakers.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply and remember, even if you don't vote for me a please and thank you goes a long way.

Sharp sd nx10_out signal trouble

Try all of the spaekers on the channel you know works. If all are fine, swap the speaker lines to test them. Is the input a DVD player on RCA cables? A bad signal cable from a component can be a source for problem. Connect the speakers directly to the amp(if possible) bypassing the sub box. If all works without the box, suspect bad crossover or in the self-powered boxes a bad amp.
