SOURCE: PDR-10 subwoofer has no output. 120vac to unit is

I have exactly the same situation with my PDR-10. Paradigm techs were of no help, don't me to take it to a service centre which i did. Of course when it was there they plugged it in and it stayed on for a day and a half so no problem right? Get it home, nothing, plugged and replugged, got it on once but not for long. Opened up back, everything including fuse looks solid and fine....to naked eye anyhow.

Paradigm pdr80 no sound


If it is a powered sub, the sub power supply may have failed. There might be an open fuse.

Atx motherboard wiring diagram


For the power cables from the Power Supply? Or Power Supply, and Front Panel header on the motherboard?

For both of these you need to state the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number.
Post back in a Comment.


If you just wish a generic, one-size-fits-all explanation;

A) 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable.

The older computers use a 20-pin ATX main power cable. As computers needed more power to the motherboard, the 24-pin ATX main power cable was brought out,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

Scroll the page down for info on the 24-pin ATX main power cable.

[ Much older motherboards (AT) used two main power cables. { In the link - Original PC main power cables} ]


B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.
Was brought out because Processors needed more power, than the 24-pin ATX main power cable feeding the motherboard, could deliver.

Power for the Processor,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4


C) 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable
Commonly misnomered as 'Molex'.

Molex was a model name given by the first manufacturer, of this design of power cable connector.
The name stuck. Kind of like referring to an adjustable open-end wrench as a Crescent wrench.

It is also referred to as a 4-pin Standard Peripheral power cable, because there are two styles of 4-pin Peripheral power cables.

4-pin Standard Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Generally used for IDE (PATA) harddrives, and IDE optical drives.


4-pin Small Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

Older computers used it for power to the Floppy Drive. It's generally used now to provide power for a Card Reader.

Note that both types of connectors use the same power wires, and 2 ground wires.
Yellow is 12 Volts
Red is 5 Volts
Black is Ground

[ Also, in the ATX main power cable:
Orange is 3.3 Volts, the Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.

Power Supply plugged into power, the Soft Power On wire is briefly touched to ANY Ground wire. This is bypassing the Power On switch.
If the computer (Power Supply) comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.
IF the computer (Power Supply) does NOT come on, you have a bad Power Supply ]

(ALL Black wires are Ground wires. They all lead back to one central Ground point.
ALL power wires lead back to one point in the power supply, for EACH power wire.

The 12 Volt power wires, (Yellow), all lead back to one point in the Power Supply.
This is the 12 Volt power rail.

The 5 Volt power wires, (Red), all lead back to one point in the Power Supply.
This is the 5 Volt power rail.

The 3.3 Volt power wires, (Orange), all lead back to one point in the Power Supply.
This is the 3.3 Volt power rail ]

D) SATA power cable
15-pin power cable for SATA harddrives, and SATA optical drives,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

[ The smaller 7-pin SATA connector is the interface cable, or data cable.

IF, you have a SATA harddrive that has a provision for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, ONLY use the SATA power cable.

It will burn out the harddrive if you use both. It may not do it right away, but eventually it will.
I have had people state over the years, that they were using both power cables. Came back two months later to tell me their harddrives had burned out ]

More to follow in a Comment.

Make sure the voltage and amperage specifications printed on the power supply match the voltage and amperage specifications printed on the HP product.
Voltage and amperage specifications printed on the power supply Voltage and amperage requirements printed on the HP product

If the voltage and amperage specifications between the product and the power supply are compatible, make sure the connector on the power cord is the same shape and color as the connector on the HP product.
WARNING: Do not force a power cord into an HP product that is incompatible with the HP product (different shape or size).

If the power cord is not compatible with the product, replace the power cord with a compatible cord. To buy a compatible cord, right-click the following link, How to Buy HP , and then click Open in New Window .

Unplug the power supply from the rear of the product.
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
If the product uses a power module with a detachable power cord, disconnect the cord from the power module.
Wait 15 seconds.
Reconnect the power cord to the power module.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
Check to see if the power module has an LED.
If the power module does not have an LED, continue to the next step.
If the power module has an LED, check to see if the LED lights up.
If the LED does not light up, contact HP to replace the power module. To buy a compatible power module, right-click the following link, How to Buy HP , and then click Open in New Window .
If the LED lights up, continue to the next step.
Step two: Test the power on the All-in-One
Follow these steps to test the power on the product.
Reconnect the power supply to the rear of the product.
Press and quickly release the Power button to start a Power On/Off cycle. Do not hold the button down.
Figure 1: Press and quickly release the Power button

If you press and hold the Power button too long, the product might turn on and then off without restarting. If this happens, press and quickly release the Power button again.

If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
If the issue persists , see the next step.
Solution four: Test the power with a compatible power cord from a different product
If you have another available power cord that is compatible with your product, use the alternate cord to repeat the steps in Solution three: Reset the power module and test the power .
If the product turns on with the alternate power cord, the original power cord caused the issue. Contact HP to replace the power cord. Right-click the following link, How to Buy HP , to buy a compatible power cord.
If the product does not turn on with the alternate power cord, continue to the next step.
Solution five: Service the HP product
If you have completed all the preceding steps and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

There is no power switch on the enhance atx 1123b that I have . What actually powers it up?


Just about every power supply I've owned doesn't have a power switch. The power supply is turned on by one of the wires in the 24 pin connector. According to this it looks to be pin 16 and how to turn it on:

"Short this pin to GND to switch power supply ON, disconnect from GND to switch OFF."

Hope this helps

Getting nothing out of this speaker. Was clicking for a while. Power light is on.Can I open it up and just hook up the speaker by itself to check that part It is a pdr 8 subwoofer


That would be one way to isolate the problem to either the woofer or its amp.

But do you know that it's getting an audio signal from your ?? unnamed source? Its setup could be at fault.

Or you could jack a CD player or any other audio source directly into the sub amp and see if THAT works. Start with something low as you won't have control of the volume.

I have a 110v power input Paradigm PDR10 and would like to convert it to 220/240. I'm sure it's a case of change the series connection to parallel on the transfomrer but I'm not sure the exact functions...


I have the same problem. An external transformer would step down the voltage, but it wouldn't help with the frequency, which would still be 50Hz. Paradigm says there's a risk of burnout if an unmodified PDR-10 is run at 50Hz rather than 60Hz
