    If you are refering to the Klipsch IFI then I have the same issue. I removed the electronics module from the sub. You have to remove the 8 perimeter self tapping screws. It still didn't want to come out, so I held it tight, with the electronics module a couple inches from a big pillow and gave it a hard downward jolt and it came apart (be carefull to have somethign to catch it becasue it is rather heavy and the speaker wires are connected. I found that there is a blown 4700uf 25v capacitor that is bulging and leaking from the top (indicating it is blown). I just ordered a replacement on eBay and plan on installing it as soon as it arrives. You may find the same or another CAP in the area blown on your's.

    Any luck with that capacitor? I have the same problem. i suspect that I blew something because others were doing electrical work on the house.

I had the same problem, and it was the 4700uf 25v capacitor that was bad. I replaced it and the iFi's working great again.

Don't have a solution, but thanks "Guest". I'll look for that in my unit. Same problem. Contacted Klipsch. No schematics available (made in China, of course). Thanks again.

It sounds like I'm in the same boat as you guys. I just wonder if I can do this repair by myself. I have limited electronic experience. If it is just a matter of pulling out "x" and replacing with a new "x", I can handle that... but will I need to solder?

If it's a new model you should send it back.
If it's not then it sounds like the thing that does all the work has gone. It will be found on a heat sink. Try replacing that.

Wont play through my bose system anymore


the apple ipod are very delicate and it seems that docks are very harsh on the internal workings IE: motherboard of the ipod. it not just the touch, it's all ipods.
My suggestion is to check the headphone jack and if you get sound, don;t play your ipod on the dock at all. Your dock has probably done some damage to the audio circuit on the board.
If you get sound through the headphone jack save your ipods life and just use it through the jack.
I have replaced numerous motherboards on ipods played on docks. they just don;t handle the charging and playing very well whether it's heat or just the wrong voltage I am not sure.
But my first question to a customer is have you played it on a dock.
I would stay away from the dock

Klipsch Roomgroove dock won't open


I have 3 roomgrooves and on 2 of them the rubberband that connects the dock to the spindles that opens it ripped. If you take the speaker cover off you can manually turn the spindle to open and close the dock. I am still looking for a replacement and the easiest way to insert new rubberbands.

They both use the same speakers, my personal opinion deems they are both the same. However the second SoundDock charges via USB pin, so it is future proof for future iPods.

its all about impedance matching...did you check to see that the new yamahas would drive from the system, before installing them? sounds like you will need to possibly add a matching transformer or other device on this one.

Ipod nano


The dock connectors on most of the speaker systems available are cheap and break easily. I have experienced the same problems. if the ipod doesn't sit just right then it doesn't connect. why they seem to charge but not send music signals i'm not sure. highly unlikely that it's your ipod. either buy a good speaker dock (klipsch, bose, sonic impact... check amazon or e-bay for good deals) or use the headphone jack to connect to the speaker dock you have, and use the wall charger to supply power/charge your ipod.
