Won't do anything


The internal field effect transistor and diodes have blown. You cannot repair it. Return for an exchange within the warranty period.

Hi, I bought my Lasonic Boombox a while ago. I turned it on and that only lasted for a little bit, then it made a buzzing noise, switched off and a bit of smoke came out of it. now it won't turn on.I think...


Sounds like its blown. If you bought it in the U.S. and tried to use it in the U.K. then you may have inadvertently fried the system. The U.S. uses 115 Volts AC and the U.K. user 240 Volts AC. If you plugged it in to the U.K. power with out a voltage reducer the radio received 240 volts of raw power instead of its required 115 volts it was built to handle.
Is possible a locale repair shop may be able to save it by replacing it's internal volta-pack, but it won't be cheap.
Hate to hear that happened to you, this is a great sounding radio! Don't feel bad this happens all the time as not many people know about the voltage difference between countries.

My Emerson 5812 Boombox will not turn on all of a sudden. I just bought it a couple months ago and it will not power on.


If its still under guarantee then take it back to the shop if you have the receipt. If not then it could be something as simple as a little glass fuse inside the boombox.

Sony CFD-E100 now only powers up on batteries


The AC inlet needs to be replaced, there are bad solder connections on the PC board for the inlet, or the traces are cracked on the board. I have seen all of hte above over the years for these types of units. The power board can be puirchased for $28.11 using part number: A-1124-986-A from tritronicsinc.com.

I don't have the part number for the actual inlet at teh moment, but I'll try to locate that number for you as well. Check for poor solder connections or a cracked trace first and update this with the results.

Eats my Cassette Tapes


Ok sound like the play head is out of a-line ment - easy way to fix if it is this - remove from the mains supply and open the cassette deck door - press the play button down and look at the play head there is 2 screws 1 either side 1 is fixed and 1 is sprung - now inset batterys (much safer) - try and fit a cassette in without using the cassette door should just fit in then press play and ajust the Right hand side scree with a small screwdriver (insulated) and ajust slightly to the left or to the right and this should fix the chewing - to get it just right use headphones ajusting left to right will tke the sound + & - to each earphone. Warning dont turn to far to the left as this will undo the screw completely - u have a least 1 whole turn either way is fine
