Question about Durabrand 5.1 Surround Sound Computer Speakers

3 Answers

DURABRAND HT 3916 Surround Sound System - Fuses keep blowing immediately!!!!!

In short. My folks have had this system for aobut 2 years. I helped them install it. Worked fin up til' about 2 weeks ago. The power went out in the house for aobut a half hour. The power came on, the system started to hum. Rather loudly, then nothing. No standby light, no nothing. So I went to Radio Shack, bought (4) 250V 1.6 Amp Fuses tried all 4 and when the rocker switch was turned on to supply power, it clicked, hummed and then nothing. ALL 4 FUSES BLEW. No one seems to have answers on-line. Even up here IC's incoming, outgoing, etc. Not sure what that means. But is there another fuse you need. SOME B.S. proprietary fuse? I am just wanting to fix it for my folks! HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLP!

It is most likely on of the IC's is shorted,and is letting A/C voltage reach the speakers.

First question after a power cut, followed by a device failure is, do you have a surge supressor connected to it?

The reason I say this, is because, most devices, especially the cheeper ones have poor supression, to reduce costs.

During a power cut the voltage will fall rapidly, forcing the power supply to draw more current to deliver the power required.

When the power is re-connected to a large area, i.e. a power cut, the power draw on the network will be quite large, so the network pumps more power in to compensate. This then leads to an over-voltage to the device, which is the usual killer of devices after a power cut.

A good typical example of this, is a computer, when it suddenly losses power. It usually damages the HDD.

In short, I would suppect that one of the I.C. (Integrated circuits, the little black things) has being damaged due to a power surge, as they are very sensitive to power surges.

Sorry!

Want to use my current speakers with a new surround sound system. Current system is 5.1 channels, rated at 100w per channel @ 8. Ohms. New System is rated 145watts, 5.2 channels at 6 Ohms. Will b ok?


Hi Ronald.
8 Ohm speakers will work just fine as replacements for the
6 ohm speakers. When fitting speakers you need to consider
The power handling capability. The impedance and the frequencies
involved. Power handling is expressed in wattage ie 100W.
Unfortunately this can be expressed in rms, max or peak music. The rms value (root mean square) is the only really relevant figure as this is the continuose handling power at 1 KHz. The impedance
is the resistance that the amp sees but is not a dc resistance and
varies with frequency. The lower the impedance the more power
will be drawn from the amp. In the event of a short circuit across
the speaker the amp will try to deliver infinite power into an infinitly
small load in an infinitesimal amount of time and will self destruct.
Using an 8 Ohm speaker draws less power than a 6 Ohm speaker.
Connecting speakers in parallel; results in the impedance beingreduced. For example two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel will result
in a 4 Ohm impedance load but in series will be 16 Ohms.
Incidentally the the .1 (5.1) is the sub woofer which only has
to handle the bass frequencies, a small percentage of the
amplifiers overall frequency response..
Connect your speakers and then power up the amp last
after double checking there are no shorts on the speaker
cables.
All the very best from Vintie.

Onkyo 5010 amp. Blue light went out in front and sound stop coming out. I clicked the power button and a click occurs inside the unit like its powering up but still no light or sound coming from amp.


This is either you have something loose as in a connection at the back, or the output transistors/IC are open circuit.

BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"


I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.
