Question about Koss KS5190 System

1 Answer


My wife was painting the living room walls and i think she got some paint on the system case. i think she wiped most of it off but i think something ran inside the unit because now i only get black and white picture. everything works great. the sound is great and the picture is clear just in black and white. i bought a dvd cleaner disk but did not solve the problem. is this something i can fix my self. i am somewhat of a good handyman.?

When your wife was painting did she have to move the unit or unhook it for any reason? It may be a loose connection in the wiring in the rear of the unit. If your are comfortable working on electronics and checking the connections did not work and unplug it for a day and plug it back in, does not work. then look under the lid see if there is a sign were paint got in should be easy enough to find. But I do not know of A good repair if that is the case. Other than make sure the unit is unplugged and clean the affected area with Robbing alcohol. Let it dry before resoring power.

I have connected the audio optical cable from my TV, but I couldn't get the koss system to work. Are there any other settings need to be set? Which channel should i use to get the sound AV1 or AV2?

AV1 & AV2 are the Video Inputs from your external devices such as DVD Player, Freeview etc.

I presume you have something connected to your TV and want to get this sound from your TV to output through your Koss.

Their should be a menu to activate the Optical Input but I can't find the manual to advise the correct menu.

I'll keep looking for a manual so if you can't find the menu let me know and I'll see what I can do to guide you in the right direction.

Try changing the wires around to see if it is the Speaker, wires or maybe the output connectors.
Replace the faulty part/s.

Koss KS3102 - Audio Problems

I think I have had the same problem. It seems like the system resets itself randomly. I think if you first turn it on in AV-1 or AV-2 mode, then hit the menu button on the remote, then scroll to ihe 'input'option, hit that then pick 'digital'. Do this for both AV-1&2. UI hope this fixes your problem!
