Problem with Lasonic i pod ghetto blaster

Last summer I purchased a Lasonic ghetto blaster and it worked fine while plugged in however when I tried to use it unplugged with batteries it did not work. I inquired to Lasonic and they told me that I needed to use all the same brand batteries. I just tried this the other day and it is still not working. I do not know if this is a common problem, or of where it can be repaired. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Happened to me, and a very common problem. on the top left of the battery compartment, there is a U shaped connector meant to hook up with the + battery on that side. it's too low, so the circuit doesnt complete. Use some aluminum foil or copper wire to make the U connect with that battery and it should work.

Check to see if the batteries are in correctly or there is corrosion on the battery terminals. This may sound too easy but too many times i have seen it happen. Also check to see if there is a switch on the back near the battery lid or on the side of the unit for ac/batt power. If not there is a circuit problem with the unit. Most of the units like that have a year warrenty. If it is out of warrenty it probly would cost more to repair than to buy new.
Hope this helps,

I plug in my lasonic blaster g31 when I put up the volume it turn off what is it

From the description the audio outputs are cutting out due to bad connections, or semiconductor failure. Check to make sure there are no shorts in the speaker wiring, if no change! take it back to the place of purchase for exchange or repair.

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.

I clearly have the correct batteries, but it won't turn on without using the power cable

The battery wire inside the boombox could have come loose or there is corrosion on the battery terminals.

My lasonic ghetto blaster won't come on

Make sure the switch on the back is on the correct power setting. The cord is AC and the input is DC. On batteries, switch it to DC and use tinfoil or copper wire on the left top U shaped + battery receptor. on mine, it didnt connect with batteries without metal there

I have just turned on my brand new lasonic i+931 boombox. I plugged it in and it automatically turned on, made a loud humming noise and then within seconds turned itself off. I was thinking maybe a fuse...

same happened to me. it might be the battery circuit or the batteries many times fall out of place so they dnt work. call lasonic or send it back for a new one for free like mine

Brand new lasonic i931 boombox wont turn on!!!

okay, i had a similar problem, and the problem turned out to be a bad connection. If you open up the battery box, in the bottom top left corner there is a positive connection wire that looks kind of like a "U".
this connection doesn't come in contact with the batteries, so you need to extend it by wrapping a small piece of wire or something to make it stick out more.

what we actually did was put a piece of 1/4 in. by 1 in. piece of copper flashing in the plastic slot and across the U shaped connector to increase conductivity and it works fine.

i hope this was helpful!
