Question about GPX HM3817DT Shelf System
The right speaker output jack produces no sound through the speaker. The wires were switched to insure its not the wires. The jack itself is not working. I have used this product for a month and it had worked fine. It has not been moved, it has just stopped working. I cannot find my receipt to return it.
You must plug it in to the right slot,

Hi There, 11.11.2007
There are several things that could have caused this to happen.
But first there is a simple test you can do as follows.
Take a small battery out of one of your torch's, a small AAA or AA type they are usually 1.5 volts.
Disconnect the faulty speaker wires from the rear of the amplifier system and by tapping the speaker wires to the terminals on the small battery you should hear small clicks coming from the speaker...If this happens OK then you know the speaker and the wires are all OK and the fault must be inside the Amplifier system. But if you dont hear any small clicks then the wires to the speaker or the speaker itself is faulty...you can try this on the good speaker and see what the clicks sound like!!!
Clicks means its all OK,
No Clicks there must be a faulty cable or a blown speaker...
The next thing to consider is were you playing the music at full volume when the speaker went faulty???
There is usually protection devices within the amplifier to protect the speakers from overloading, and its possible that this device has tripped on the faulty channel.
Sometimes there are fuses which are accessible from outside the amplifier case which you may be able locate then replace.
But if there are no fuses then the amplifier will need to go to a service person for attention. I dont recommend that you take the amplifier apart yourself as there are dangerous voltages inside that can cause you serious injury, and a service person is trained to look inside safely......
Cheers for now... yubeut.
