I think that I have a fairly simple problem on my hands. Simple as it may seem, I'm having a hard time trouble shooting it. I turned on my system one day, and I noticed that I was not getting the usually power that I usually get. Everything works, but the system seems like it has lost a lot of power. There isn't that immediate noticeable thump that I get, and I have the bass turned right down. I've never actually cranked this thing up like a lot of people do, so I'm assuming that nothing is blown. I can't figure this one out. Anyone have any ideas to the source of my problem. The items that I'm using it with are my satellite receiver with an optical cable, and my home computer with surround card. I've tried these items individually one at a time, and I still don't have the out power that I had before.

Are these powered speakers? If so you my have blown a fuse or amp inside speaker needs work, such as a blown capacitor. It coild be wire on plug, if you have a miltimeter you can use it to figure out if plug is at fault. Also just check for broken wires do the simple things first.
Sounds like the power supply circuitry has failed...... mains is stepped down to 12V for the battery... but the circuit includes Choke (inductor) and smoothing capacitors. I suggest you remove the hard disk and mount it in a caddy... so you can recover your data using the hard disk as an external drive.
Does not seem very complex. I think it is because of the broken fuse. Simply Open the back part of Bose companion 5. The Circuit board attached to the back part is basically for the Audio output socket, Control pod Connector and Power supply connector. on the Left hand side of the board you will find a fuse soldered with the board. most probably that fuse is broken. replace the fuse if broken or just connect both end of the fuse with thin wire (temporary) to check. Hope it helps.
I am outta home or else i could have added an image for you. maybe tomorrow.
Hi. I just pulled mine apart for the same reason - I did it the hardway - hopefully I can reinstall all the parts into my silver 80's ghetto blaster I picked up the other day for $8.... Anyway the easy way is with a knife or something pop out the metal gauze over the speakers - there are 2 sets of four screws (four left, four right) these hold the two halves of the casing together. before you crack it open make sure you get the six screws in the battery compartment as well. The fault in my dock is from the power adapter being wiggled and causing the black wire to fracture away from the circuit board - simple fix but now my case is a wreck, which is ok cause I'd written it off as a loss anyway... now i have a project to practise soldering on : ) Hope this helps
Excuse me if I'm sounding a bit dumb, but don't these speakers need to be powered by an external power supply (You didn't give the model but I'm almost 100% sure they do). if so are they connected to power? And if they are (again, you didn't give the make and model of your TV) are you sure it's an output and not an input jack?
I'm confused - 1. I know that a speaker does not need drivers to operate - they just need an amplified audio signal to produce sound. 2. An HDMI output has a digital video and audio signal to transfer from a source like a computer or DVD player to a destination, like a TV set or an AV system.
You might have a problem with your sound card in your computer. I think you're missing a AV component system in your set-up - like a physical receiver or AV hardware.
Hi there!, I have read the manual for your system,..and maybe I can offer some solutions....Firstly, I am a musician and have experience with a lot of musical and studio equipment....some may seem simple, but it can bug you for hours or even days.
You must follow some simple troubleshooting steps,...to cancel out the possibilities.
Firstly, turn off your system, and disconnect it from the source,....I am guessing it is a PC. Disconnect ALL connections and then set them up again with the power off. When all speakers and power supply is re-connected, turn on again. Run a speaker check, your system or PC should be able to help you with this. If the speaker is still not working, next, swap the right and left speaker outputs. If the speaker works, then the problem is NOT the speaker ok. If the speaker still does not work, then it is a bad speaker or bad lead to the speaker understand!?
Is the power supply AC or DC. I had a similar problem with my boston acoustics speakers, and I was able to swap the power supply for a DC output one of the same voltage and amperage and the hum went fully away. it is an inverter circut that went bad in my woofer.
A friend in south korea has tried to talk to me on skype, I can hear him, but the microphone in my computer dosen't seem to be working can you help me with this? I also have to tell you that I am not very conversant with computers so the answer will have to be very simple
