SOURCE: no sound

if you had the speaker wires shorted for a while and boosted your audio waioting for a sound then your audio power amp must be busted. If this model comes with a protection fuse, then it usually blows the fuse and just replace it otherwise if it's a type that doesn't use then only reason why no sound is busted power output amp.

No sound coming from my speakers


Possible scenerio's with the little info you gave.

1.You have a bad speaker thats blown or the wires are touching the chassis of your car.

2. You have a factory amp and you need to connect the blue wire to the amp turn on wire. And if it still doesnt work then you have to rewire it complete or maybe have to get a special car amplifier compatible harness so your aftermarket works with your amplified system in your car.

3. In certain Ford cars they crisscrossed the back speaker wires. To test this unplug your harness from the radio. VERY IMPORTANT( splice these colors of wires in the middle enough so you can use a 9volt small rectangular battery to make the speakers you want to test pop(harmless))
1. green = back left + speaker
2. green/black = back left - speaker
3. purple = back right + speaker
4. purple/black = back right - speaker

test green speaker wires first touch battery to the + and - and the speaker should pop if not you have already discovered the problem. Know this time pop the green + and the purple/black - on the 9volt battery if the speakers pop you have found the solution.

Just criss cross the the negatives of the back speakers. From the radio harness end attach green to green, purple to purple, green/black to purple/black and last purple/black to green/black. And all your speakers should work again.

Dont ask me why late Ford Models crisscrossed their speaker wires. They just did.

I have a 93 Ford Laser hatch back and I need to know the radio wiring color codes for the wires that plug into the back of the radio-cassette. 1)Orange-green tracer 2)Orange-black tracer 3)Grey-green...


OK this is what I did: First I soldered a wire each end of a 1.5v battery. I then bared the other ends of the two wires and tinned them. Then I touched the wires coming from under the dash in pairs until I heard the resultant sound coming from a speaker. This then told me the position of each speaker in the car. From there it was just a matter of noting the color codes for each pair of wires and from which speaker they came. My Gregory's Laser KH manual had wiring codes, but entirely different to my vehicle. Also there is no indication of what color matches what letter code! Cheers. Gerry

Wharfedale s20030 speakers broken?


First, check input power (electricity) of your speaker. You can see lamp indicator on speaker (usually LED lamp, Light Emitting Diode, green light or else) must be light ON.
Two, jack line out (usually green) on the speaker, you must touch that jack. Don't worry, you can't heart attack cause of it (for touching that jack, DC-Direct Current supply). If you hear some noise, sound of droning, buzzing, that is indicate of sound will be come out from that speaker.
Three, you play WinAmp software (or Windows Media Player, from Microsoft) and get in one of mp3 file, and load it into WinAmp player. Make sure if your mp3 file is normally sound.
Four, plug in your green jack (of speaker) to the line in of your sound card (refer to mainboard PC, if your soundcard get in ONBOARD or plug in PCI slot). Green jack line of speaker to socket green of sound card.
Five, now you can hear sound of your song....

Diamond Audio amplifier 1200W


If the speaker wires touched and the protection circuit didn't engage quickly enough, the output transistors may have failed. This is the most common cause for an amplifier to go into protect mode.

If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp and the B+ and remote voltage are above ~11 volts (place black meter lead on ground terminal of the amp when checking the voltage), and the protect light still comes on, the amplifier will need to be repaired.
