Question about JBL PB12 Subwoofer
My subwoofer lights don't ture to green even when I hear the subwoofer working. I know that it takes some time for the lights to turn green and they used to , but now they just stay red. When I turn the volume up, the red lights will flicker but never turn green. I hear the woofer working but is it fully working? Should I take this to a repair shop? Any advise would be appreciated.

These subs have had many problems, all associated with the amplifier section. PB 12's with an "M" as part of the ser. no. were assembled in Mexico and these are the ones with the amp problems. JBL fixed mine and sent it back no charge, BUT it cost me nearly $100 to send it to them in the first place. I have another one that has had no problems at all. Try sending it back for repair. At best you'll get a rebuilt unit back, at worst a substantial discount from the company for a new sub.

if your serial number starts with ha then it's probably a bad capacitor C72 . 6.8uf 100v np electrolytic. replace it with a higher voltage capacitor of the same value.

You can download the service manuals here and read the service bulletin and check per manual.
Hopefully the ClassD module is not bad.

Has nothing to do with the signal or source - it is a failure of the turn on circuit - I repair this amp - can help if you find my add here or I am located on ebay as well. Juust do a search for We Repair JBL and find the model :)
