Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

How can I find out if its a short circuit or just my speakers?

I could only hear static music from Cd's and car audio worked before I answered a blue tooth call. Then it smelled like burnt wires.

SOURCE: A Dual car cd player'' remote wire ''blue''

Run ur remote wire to the head unit from the amp its blue and u said the head unit u have is a duel it should have a yellow wire or or a dark blue one. hook up the remote wire to one of those and let me know if that works and one more thing do not run the RCA cables on the same side of the car or truck what ever u have but if ur power wire and the remote wire are on the left hand side run ur RCA'S on right from the head unit to the amp.

SOURCE: Dell E1505 speakers melted, New speakers smell burnt too.

The speakers are heating up because there is a short in the audio circuitry on the mother board, and I would consider you extremely lucky if that is all that is over drawing current and heating up. You may get lucky and be able to connect external speakers to get sound without melting your laptop.

SOURCE: volume low on all four speakers, some static (amp or head unit problem)

I would check the amp first, especially if you have very low sound on the speakers. Before amps were made, bad output transistors would create the same effect.

Having trouble with all my speakers except my twitters in a 2007 Saturn Outlook...what do I start with? Fuses are good


Speakers get power from the amp if your system has one or from the radio , if the tweeters work it's not a fuse problem . You like listen to your stereo loud . Blew a channel in the radio or amp ?
Take it and have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes
DTC B1025 01: Audio Output 1 Left Front Circuit Short to Battery
DTC B1025 02: Audio Output 1 Left Front Circuit Short to Ground
DTC B1035 01: Audio Output 2 Right Front Circuit Short to Battery
DTC B1035 02: Audio Output 2 Right Front Circuit Short to Ground
DTC B1045 01: Audio Output 3 Left Rear Circuit Short to Battery
DTC B1045 02: Audio Output 3 Left Rear Circuit Short to Ground
DTC B1055 01: Audio Output 4 Right Rear Circuit Short to Battery
DTC B1055 02: Audio Output 4 Right Rear Circuit Short to Ground

Each of the audio output channel circuits (+) and (-), at the radio and audio amplifier (if equipped) have a DC bias voltage that is one half of the battery voltage. When using a DMM, each of the audio output channel circuits will measure approximately 6.5 V DC. The audio being played on the system is produced by a varying AC voltage that is centered around the DC bias voltage on the same circuit. The AC voltage is what causes the speaker cone to move and produce sound. This voltage will vary depending on what type of audio is being listened to, talk or music, and type of music, as well as the volume setting of the system. Low volume and talk settings will measure around 1V AC and less, where constant music may measure 3 V AC and slightly higher.
Do you know how to do DC voltage testing ?
Without Amplifier without UK6
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the appropriate speaker.
Radio ON, test for 5.0-7.5 V between the signal circuit terminal A and ground.
? If less than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the radio.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the radio.
Test for 5.0-7.5 V between the signal circuit terminal B and ground.
? If less than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the radio.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the radio.
If all circuits test normal, replace the speaker.

Hello, my problem is when I insert a CD(mp3), the Subwoofer gets disabled and only the speakers works. However, when I use only radio, the woofer works fine, it's only when I play CDs. My receiver is new...


it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white (amplifier remote turn on) wire to turn your amplifier on.

My speaker on my asus eee 1000he is not working corectly. I'm unable to here people speak they sound as if the volume is turned way down and can not here most music clearly. Even with headset it does not...


the sound card in n that netbook is a very weak one, alot of people complain, could be that
could also be that you have the wave volume turned down...
go to start
control panel
sound and audio devices
right under the volume slider click the advanced tab
make sure all tabs there are maxxed out
if that doesnt work
turn dolby on, suposedl;y that helps...
if that doesnt work, turn the volume up all the way, play a soft song, like saxaphone music, adn get the speaker close to your ear, if you can barely hear the music, and get about the same amount of static or white noise, you have a shorted circuit with the internal sound system...

What is "Press Power Protect"?


Hi Lois,
Stereo sytems have a protection circuit that alerts you by displaying "protect" when there is a electrical short circuit detected in the system, the most common short happens in a speaker, try disconnectig the speaker wires of both speakers(all speakers) at the back of the system, then play the CD or cassette player(although you will not hear anything with the speakers disconnected) and see if the unit goes into "protect" mode if the problem is still present then you have an internal short circuit and the system will need to be sent in for service or replaced(depending on age,repair costs). I would not recommend investing more than $80 into repairs. Now, if the unit does not go into "protect mode" then one of the speakers or speaker wires is shorted,be sure you check the conndition of the speaker wires before you replace the speakers, then you can replace the speakers(in a pair) and you should be back up and listening! Good luck and Merry Christmas !

No sound from the reciever


Plug in your headphone, if you hear music then it could be the speaker's fuse blown up, or the speaker's circuit breaker shut down. If nothing sound then possibly the strong static has burned down the audio/receiver's circuitry section.
