SOURCE: Acoustic Research Model AW871 wireless sterio speakers

Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first. Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points. First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them? Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off. I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.

SOURCE: hi i have ilive it188b my problem if i plug it in

· First troubleshooting - When you turn the laptop on, are you able to see the splash screen? This would be the computer manufacturer's screen display that usually shows a picture but may also be text and usually appears right before the Windows logo screen. If the answer is yes, then more than likely, the operating system is corrupt. This can be caused by several things including viruses, power surges or hardware failure. If your computer hits the windows screen and reboots back into a loop, this is also signs of Windows being corrupt.

Solution - Take the hard drive out of the laptop and slave it to another working desktop computer to retrieve your data. You may need a special cable for this because the laptop hard drive is smaller than the cable in a desktop. This process can be done, taking precaution that both computers are off while slaving the hard drive. After you attach the hard drive, turn the desktop on, it will read it like another drive and you will be able to pull all of your information from it. You only want to grab the user files, not other data and run a scan to rid of viruses. Then attach the hard drive back on and reformat it.


· Second troubleshooting - If you hear the operating system chime but do not see a picture and all the lights are on, then this would indicate that the back light on the screen is out. You can test this simply by hooking the laptop up to a monitor and see if you get a picture. If the computer screen shows on the monitor, then your back-light is out. If it doesn't show up then your video graphics card is out.

Solution - If the back light is out, it is easier to order a new screen (new or used) from eBay and just switch out (simple process and you can find a replacement for under 50 dollars on eBay). If it is the video graphics card, then you can also purchase one from eBay and switch out (a little tougher because you have to take the top of the laptop off). You can get assistance with this from the manufacturers website (service manual) and pull specs for free.


· Third troubleshooting - To test the battery, take the battery out of the laptop and turn on with just the adaptor. If it boots, then the battery will need to be replaced. There is no way of testing the power adaptor but 85% of the time, this is the problem. Even if lights come on, the adaptor sometimes gets so overheated that it silently goes out but gives just enough power to make the lights come on. The power adaptor can be found on eBay for under 20 dollars and is cheap enough to replace (first) to make sure that is not the problem. The battery can also be found on eBay for under 60 dollars.

· Fourth troubleshooting - If you do not hear any beeps and the above solutions did not work. Then your motherboard has failed. This can be caused by surges or dust. You can purchase a replacement from eBay for a fraction of the cost and replace (this is tough and I am not sure if they have specs for this). You can do it yourself, just be sure and put everything back together as it was.

My ilive speakers IT188b won't play any sound. I'd like to resolder the main audio board, but where is it?!? I got to the insides and pretty much pressed all the connections and they seem in place....


You just want to jump in start soldering without knowing what the cause is???

Do you even KNOW the speaker is the reason? Sources and cables can be the reason.

As always, you should refer to the manual FIRST before coming here.That is where WE will usually start.

For example, there is no troubleshooting section but there is a website mentioned on the last page: www.ilive.net

...which leads to SUPPORT (and contact information, should this not help) which leads to

http://www.ilive.net/store/p/43-2-1-Channel-Bar-Speaker-with-Dock-for-iPod-.aspx

which leads to downloadable manuals

http://www.ilive.net/owners_manual/IT188B-IB.pdf

an instructional insert for changing the clock between 12/24 hr time and FAQs, which discuss your symptom.

"Why can I not hear any audio from my iLive docking system?

When an auxiliary line-in cord is inserted into the LINE-IN jack (on the right side of your IT188B) you will not be able to hear what is connected to IN2 (on the back of your IT188B). Both of these input share the same input function of AV2. To play audio from either of these inputs, press the FUNCTION button until AV2 appears on your LCD screen. If both inputs have connections with audio players, the LINE-IN jack will have precedence over the IN2 jack. Make sure to detach the cable connected to LINE-IN before connecting a device to IN2. You will need an auxiliary line-in cable (3.5 mm mini to stereo RCA cable) to connect an iPod shuffle to this system. Also, there is a Volume Limit option in the Settings menu of your iPod. Make sure that this maximum volume is set to a range that will be audible. Be careful when adjusting your volume level. Higher decibel levels at close range may put you at risk for hearing damage."

Make sure that your audio in on Ilive unit is going to your tv's audio out. Your tv may have a setup to able the audio out. Refer to your tv's owner's manual. I have to do this on my tv to my Ilve unit.

My iLIVE mod# IT188b will not turn on.... reset button not working either??? this is the second unit I have had(first one did the same thing)but was able to return without reciept...not the case this time!...


This particular unit has issues with bad solder connections on the main audio board which come loose because the woofer speaker vibrates them loose. I've repaired unit myself with a soldering iron.

ILive IT188B - Not a problem, but a question as I have not purchased the unit yet. I am looking to enhance the sound from my Digital TV. The chances of ever using an IPod are slim. My question; can it be...


Yes, absolutely. It has inputs from which you can connect your TV. Its a nice box for the price. The remote SUCKS! Terrible key placement. However, you should be able to program the remote into another universal remote. Although, I have not figured out how to do that yet as ilive does NOT posts discrete IR codes or hex codes for the more advanced programmers.
