My lasonic ghetto blaster won't come on

I have had my lasonic ghetto blaster i931 for about a year, but it has been broke for a while. It worked for a while fine and then one day it wouldn't turn on. I had it plugged in before and thought maybe the connection was off, but then I used batteries and it wouldn't turn on. I then figured the power button might have been loose or broke on the boombox but I have a remote for it and it won't come on using that too. I took it to radio shack and they couldn't do anything. I don't know whats up with it.

Happened to me. wasn't the U shaped connector. It was the connector on the right hand side, it gets pushed down over time. If you look at it and you see that its not pushed all the way up, then thats the problem. I opened my box up and physically pushed it up. It slides right up and then close it back.

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 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.

My remote control isn't working


Take a digital camera like the one on your phone... point the 'business end' of the remote at the camera while you can view it in the screen and press a button on the remote.. the IR LED on the remote should be visible on the camera screen. If not, try replacing the battery. If that doesn't work either then it would seem the remote as come to an unfortunate demise. If you can see a blinking light from the remote then it would seem the issue is with the radio's receiver. Make sure the IR port on the radio is free of stickers or anything else that might block it. Also, be sure that you have LOS (line of sight) from the remote to the radio.
Other than that it would seem you need to take it to a repair expert locally.

THE VOLUME KNOB ON MY i931 WILL ONLY INCREASE SOUND, NOT DECREASE


If your volume control has no "stops" to it, meaning when you turn the control it continually spins, then the volume control is what is called a "rotary encoder" as opposed to a potentiometer which has a definite beginning and end. The only way to test a rotary encoder accurately is to do so with an oscilloscope. And usually the only way to repair the problem is to have it replaced by a qualified technician. It's not really a job for the home hobbyist. You may have success cleaning it with a contact cleaner that doesn't leave any residue, but don't hold your breath...

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.

Problem with Lasonic i pod ghetto blaster


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.

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!
