JBL esc333 sub not working

Hi, since my 3 yr old dropped a toy into the port and I removed it by taking the back off the sub no longer works. I noticed a couple of broken capacitors which I replaced but the problem is still there. as I live in the UK, can someone advise me of the best course of action. The system sounds great and am reluctant to bin it yet (cost of fixing it to buying another).
Thanks Ilyas

Well, I have recently inherited one from a family member, but this one came with the same issue. I simply drilled a small hole into the metal grating, completely bypassing the circuit boards inside. I reconnected a piece of fresh speaker wire to the sub, and had that plugged into my receiver. Now, not only can I boost my sub, I can also control its volume.(It didn't come with the remote either!)

My esc333 packed up soon after I bought it (2nd hand on ebay). No original speaker connectors came with mine so I had to hack into said connectors and solder some cables straight onto the PCB, all was OK for a couple of days then no joy, although it appeared to power up.

After a while I decided to strip the whole thing apart. I simply undid every connection and put it back together again (I'd suspected a dodgy connection). After this back in business.

My only gripe is that I received no external infrared receiver with mine. So some of the advanced adjustments, which you can only make with the remote I can't do. If you are thinking of scrapping yours I'd be interested in buying that off you?

Problems with JBL PSW D110


The speaker level input option is designed for receivers that don't have digital output for the sub, used this way when you set to digital the speaker outputs only get the higher range outputs so won't reproduce much bass. To get the sub to work in digital mode you need to use the digital output (single RCA) from the amp to the sub

It will not power on


henrylshelt,
Your sub should turn on into standby mode when plugged into AC power without being attached to the receiver. If it does not follow the list below. If it does, the sub needs a signal from your receiver via either by line-level (RCA) or the speaker wires to turn on out of standby. Ensure that the cable or wires going to your sub is in fact sending a signal while the receiver is on. To Test, (speaker wires) hook up a different known working speaker; (line-level) Some receivers have a menu option to turn the LFE output on and off, ensure that it is on and producing a signal.

Diagnose the problem:
1) Remove all wiring to/from the unit except for the AC plug (use a different known working AC outlet), will it turn on? If so the other outlet is not working.
2) Remove the woofer, does the amp have a fuse that need to be changed? Change the fuse. If it blows again after replacing and turning back on, the speaker is blown; go to #4.
3) Unplug the woofer from the amp, does it turn on? If so, go to #4.
4) The sub need to be serviced. http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Support/Pages/SupportOverView.aspx

-Hope this helps, Chris.
