Fix to issue where no output from fixed outputs but headphone output works

Hi David_77,

I saw you suggested replacing R428 in a post you made to the problem with Bose Lifestyle 5 system not outputting from Fixed outputs but the headphone output worked fine.

I have a similar issue but cannot track down R428 on the boards in my system. Is it on the underside of the board with the display attached? I cannot find it on the top. Perhaps there are different rev's of the system that may not contain R428.

Any help you can offer would be very muxch appreciated.

    Thanks Dave, you have been very helpful.

    For others that are still confused. The resistor is on the underneath of the main board (not the display board) in the music Centre (not the acoustimass sub). The jack socket Dave refers to is the green double socket labeled System Control on the back of the music centre.

    The trick is finding the right resistor. I have not tracked it down yet but intend to look closely over the next few days.

Hi, If you go to the bottom jack socket and trace the wiring back it should take you to R428, one end is connected to the tip of the jack socket the other to the + 10 volt line

    Hi Jeff, the resistor is on the underside of the main PCB not the display board, it is in the corner near the jack socket.. Please send me you e mail address and I will send you the PCB layouts of the two versions I have.

This means that there is a short detected on one of the amp outputs. Try disconnecting the speakers from the back of the unit and power on. If fault still persists then likely you have a bad output ic or FET (transistor). If fault goes away after removing speakers then plug them in one by one to see which is the culprit.

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?

Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:

To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.

If there is an RCA output (red & white), you can get an RCA to 3.5mm mini jack adapter at a store like Radio-Shack in the US or the Source in Canada.
