Based on your post description, a short was introduced to the output of your system (wires touched). Since you were playing at a high level and the touching wires represents a 0 ohms load, there is a strong possibility that the power amplifier burned (too low a load at too high an output). The burnt component then represents a failure. When you try and power on the unit, it will go to its built-in diagnostics/initialization stage where it will sense the fault and thereafter go to auto-protect (shutdown).

Corrective measure would involve opening the unit and performing diagnosis of the circuitry and components check. Since these call for familiarity with electronics, use of a DVM and a soldering iron, perhaps your best course of action would be to seek the services of a qualified audio technician. Should you venture a do-it-yourself, you would need to concentrate on the audio amp, specifically the finals or outputs which could be a large power IC or a MOSFET pair. Determining which is at fault would simply be removing suspected component and verify that the unit will power on albeit any sound output. Of course the usual precautionary safety measures apply when working with live units.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Earphone plug is not working

do your speakers have their own volume knob? sounds like its turned way down,master volume in control panel under audio devices,also volume controll in the sound card software ,nvidia,realtek,maestro,ect. whitch ever one you have,if they are all turned up ,try turning it up useing your hotkeys on your keyboard,if none of that works,uninstall all of your audio drivers,and reinstall them from the support web site at,the wires that go to that headphone jack inside are very small,doesnt take much to damage them,droping it a couple times is enough,reinstalling the software is the best chance,if that doesnt do anything ,you will have to go inside,if this only happens when your using the optical drive then disregard everything i just said,and replace it.make sure its locked in securely

Won't stay on, turns off by itself

With a 1.5 Volt Dry Cell (AA Size), connect two pices of wire with the Cell. Momentarily touch the wires with speaker several times. It should produce click sound when wires are touched. If not then speakers are defective and need repair. Do not touch the wires for more than a second, touching the wires for a long time may damage the speakers.

have u checked for loosened pieces in the subwoofer case ?
Most probably is the wire that connect on to the speakers membrane, that broke off from the glue it holds it ...

also check the filters ... (the capacitors , see if they are inflated,burned, or blackened, and if so change them ..)

Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA

The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!

No sub when listening to a cd

you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).

Orange light

I have the same speaker and it sounds like its behaving properly.

if you look on the back of the amp, you will find a switch that allows the speaker to automatically switch the speaker on or off based on the level of the audio coming from the tuner that it is attached to. If the switch is set to the auto mode, then it will listen for audio on the line and if the signal level coming into the subwoofer is high enough, the amplifier in the subwoofer will turn on and play. If the signal is not strong or loud enough, then the subwoofer will not turn on. There are two solutions to getting the speaker to work.

1. When you turn on the tuner or audio source that is feeding the Subwoofer speaker, you will need to turn it up loud enough to trigger the circuit in the subwoofer to switch on.

2. Alternatively, you can bypass the automatic circuit and set it to the "ON position all the time. In this position the subwoofer is always ready and waiting and should play any signal that is fed to it regardless of the loudness or volume of sound from the tuner. The switch is located on the back of the speaker cabinet just to the right of the red and black speaker wire connections. It is labeled "AUTO" and the switch positions are labeled ON and OFF.

Hope this helps!
