Cambridge Soundworks Playdock PD 200 not amplifying or outputting

It appears to power on, on/off light comes on when plugged in, mute light also functions, however it no longer outputs power to associated MP3 Jukebox nor amplifies or outputs sound.

It is a few years old but I love this system and I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me to get it working again

SOURCE: Fluctuation in sound output on Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 speakers

Hi Paulus
A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.

Below is a list of all of the older model Pioneer amplifiers; your's isn't in it. I don't think you have a real Pioneer product but rather a knock off amp. If you locate the model number below you can follow this link to locate a manual for it: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Support/CarAudioVideo/ch.Amplifiers.Archived?vgnextfmt=Archived

SOURCE: V12 MRV-1507 or Xplod? Amplifier - XM-ZR1252 good quality sound

Alpine is just a better brand in general. I have the older MRV-1507, sounds GREAT, i have had friends who has had the Explode line, but it was always a temporary system until they got something better, like the alpine or kenwood.

Turntables need a preamp due to their very low output compared to modern components. The link above is the one I use. Try connecting to your receiver's phono input if you have one, also try the aux input. If neither of those work, obtain a preamp and you will soon be scratching with the best of them.

Boombox isn't working but the blue light is on.


Unfortuneately the standby light has activated because there is a short in one or more of the audio output ic's, remove speaker wires from back and power on, if no change! outputs need to be replaced, if yes! check wires for shorts and hook one at a time until problem is found,

Ikasu dvd boombox -no sound


If you have power to the unit but no sound, chances are the audio output ic has shorted causing a load, turn volume down, power off, remove speaker wires, power on, if standby light stays on audio output ic needs to be changed. If however the standby light changes or goes off it indicates a short in the wires or speaker issue, hook up one at a time to identify the problem one.

My woofer is 18' 600w rms power. so what is the


Basically you cannot break you woofer with too powerful amp, but you can break it using too weak amp. This is because if you don't have enough watts going to you woofer the cones movement isn't controlled properly. I'm usually using +20% to the woofers RMS and peak power. This will also make the amp last longer because you won't use it at it's peak performance all the time. If possible use manufacturer whose prising policy matches your woofers manufacturers, that way you won't end up with "2000w peak power" cheap amp with real output of 30w. and in the other end cheap woofer won't handle expensive amp with real 600w rms so well, you need to find a midlle way here. Hard to say without knowing the make and model of the woofer.
This is a taste question for some people, and I haven't build a system to match so powerful woofer ever in my life. But I'm pretty sure you won't go wrong with this one.

Pioneer SA 9800 Ampliffier Output transistor going off frequently


I assume these are the complimentary pair that drive the speakers. On one of the speaker. You know I think you have a short in the speaker that it drives. Speaker can fuction even if there was a problem with it. I think what happened is when the original transistors shorted out it overloaded the speaker, but not to a point where it is burnt. There is nothing that can overload a power transistor except the speakers, I design a lot of amplifiers, the base input can overload it if you put dc in there, but that would make a the sound all distorted, I assume the sound seem fine. Solution is try connecting a known good speaker and I bet it wont burn out anymore. Even if the speaker look fine don't trust it.

My sharp Stereo is stuck in '' protect'' mode


Protect mode is not something that a reset will fix. Basically it indicates that there is a problem with the final output stage of the amplifier. Normally this indicates that the output transistors are defective. In most boomboxes, the amplifier is a single IC. If you can post the model number, I can provide you with the required part and cost.

Thanks,
Dan

Radio plays sometimes, won't others. is getting power, fm stereo indicator lights up when tuned in to a station, but no sound from the speakers, not even static


maybe the amplifier inside is failing if you turn it all the way up for a second and it comes on then it is the amp but if you wiggle the vol and it comes on the its the vol switch
how did the speakers sound ?
