THX 650s not working after power outage

I had a power outage in the middle of the night as clocks were all off by a couple of hours. May have been a lightening strike as weather was bad. Next day the THX would not switch on. The fuse appears to be good. I read where others have found a little yellow capacitor sitting over the power leads to be the culprit. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Lost power to my house, came back on outlet has power clock on radio works radio has no power. wall clock on same outlet works fine


There is a battery backuo in the radio. This is probably powering the clock. It looks like the radio power supply is either fried or the hardwired fuse is blown.
Take a look at the manual. If you take out the battery back up does the clock still work? GPX MP3 Player KC232S user manual

Check the power adapter for continuity. If you experienced a power outage or surge lately, the adapter and/or camera may be damaged. Try to use camera with alternative adapters of the same voltage/current/.

My megaworks 5.1 550 gets no power... I dont know why. when i plug in power cable, there is no power...


Step 1:

i had same problem with my magaworks 5.1 thx550.
i have tried to find solution in web but it was only one which voltage sense resistor 2Mohm track in PCboard was damaged.
after check PCboard in my megaworks thx 550 i found that tracks are quite well and voltage sense resistor is well too.

Step 2:

REPAIRING PROCEDUREin below items there are repairing procedures that i did with my THX550.to access to BCboards it is required to remove electronic boards from woofer case.
1- remove cover of woofer.2- remove woofer speaker from case by cutting and marking connected wires.
3- remove all Philips screws around cover and remove electronic parts smoothly, care about glues around power cord.4- remove and disconnect power supply board from other parts.


3_12_2013_7_45_42_am.jpg5- replaced switcher TOP234Y and capacitors C102, C206, C205 and D10 as below photos.3_12_2013_8_08_28_am.jpg6 check all of related tracks in repairing area.3_12_2013_8_10_00_am.jpg


3_12_2013_8_48_15_am.gif7- now it is time to re assemble electronic parts very carefully and prepare for test. it is better to use isolated transformer and put a lamp in serial to protect PCboard against short circuit. if green LED (POWER LED) is on it means that every thing is O.K.
8- in this step all of electronic parts should return back to case and reconnect sub woofer connections.3_12_2013_9_02_39_am.jpg

Step 3:

after replacing damaged parts my THX 550 is working well maybe for next 10 years.
i hope above mentioned instruction can be useful and helpful.

I have a VSB200. It worked until last night. No sound coming out of it now.


I have the same sound bar and in the middle of watching a movie, it just stopped working. I came to the conclusion that it was the optical hookup on the back of the speaker that had an issue. The problem with the entire situation is that I had only owned the sound bar for around two to three weeks and only watched around four movies on it until this problem. Either a fluke or bad quality. Check your optical connection if that is what you have it hooked up to.

Our power went out last night and now our speakers won't work. we get power to them but no sound coming out.


Hi,

Chances are that either the soundcard or speakers on your pc have been damaged by the sudden power/surge outage.

Suggest you try youy speakers on another pc or connect to your TV to test them. If they work fine, try putting some earphones/headphones into your pc (same connector as the speakers) to see if they work there.

Either way, from the above you will be able to tell what's broken. If the soundarc on your pc is damaged, you will prob need to take to someone to see if they can fix or replace the part. They may need to replace the whole motherboard.

Hope that helps, pls rate the solution

I just got my creative sbs 5.1 70 watt speaker 2 moths before.....everything was working fine but when other day i left the speaker on for 1 night the other day i tried to play it but the power was not...


Make sure all of the speaker wiring is seated fully in each connection point on the PC and speaker components themselves. Also, try leaving all of the speakers unplugged for a short while (1-2 hours), reconnect it all, then try again.

JBL on rour stop working one hour later every time


Hi, I got my on tour a couple of months ago and it worked fine. But just recently it starts stopping emitting any sound one hour or so after I start it. No sound at all, and the light goes off too. If I press one of the buttons, the light will glim just once.
