    I found a company that can repair my power supply. After a year trying to get it fixed or replaced I am giving them a shot.

    We had wired our system into the wall and when we moved house cut the power cable. We have tried using a junction box on the wires but can only get the standby light on the unit. Does anyone know if this means there is not enough power to the unit ? If I need to buy a new one , is there a supplier out there ? p.s We are in Europe.

Since you didn't post your message as a comment on another entry, the person you asked never saw the message.
If your system is dead, it is surely the power supply. Your system probably uses a 'switched mode' type of supply; these are fussy about certain components being of the highest quality and there are a flood of supply failures on this message board from all kinds of consumer electronics and the schematics needed to repair them are generally not available since many manufacturers outsource their power supplies and the companies that make them are often only a step above a garage operation.
If you haven't done it yet, you may have some luck buying a replacement supply from Nakamichi. If the supply manufacturer hasn't cleaned up their product, the new one may not last any longer.

    Thanks for posting your findings back at Fixya; they might save another Nakamichi owner a little time.
    I hope the factory service folks don't shy away from taking some preventative measures to hopefully lengthen the supply's life span.

Would a nakamichi soundspace 8 subwoofer work on a soundspace 9. I think the power is the same. Thanks Hugo

Nop, don't do that, the subwoofer power in the Nakamichi Soundspace 8 is 20 Watts and the subwoofer for Nakamichi Soundspace 9 is 70 Watts. If you put the 20 Watts Subwoofer on a 70 Watts input the subwoofer will receive severe damage.

Nakamichi Soundspace 5 will not turn on with the remote or the power button

The main fuse, or power transformer is open, or the audio output ic has failed. Since you were having trouble with the remote and power button I recommend replacing the item, cost to repair will be high.

Power will not turn on

Power supply is the most likely culprit....check the internal fuses.

110v - 240v

Well it may be compatible but it should hav a switch on the rear side to choose either 110 or 240V.Check for this but you probably burned primary side of main transformator and you'll have to replace it or to find somebody who is able to fix it

Power Block SOUNDSPACE 5

I also reside in the LA area (Whittier)
I also have a SoundSpace5 system less the external power supply (powerblock)
My background is in electronics & repair.
If U R willing, I can look @ your power supply to see if it is something I can repair for "free" if the parts are not too costly.
I can then measure the voltages & determine what I need for my system.
I would only need Ur powerblock because I have my own system.
I have tried for months to get a schematic diagram, w/no luck.
The Customer Service @ Nakamichi is of no help what-so-ever...
Thank You Very Much;
