Question about Bose Lifestyle 12 System

1 Answer

Power off and on again and then no sound present

If I use my system and turn off the power and then want to turn it on again, either right away or a short time latter, there is no sound. Once I disconnect the power plug from the wall or the system it will then have sound. It worked perfect until I moved the system into my new cabnet.

Re: power off and on again and then no sound present

I assume pressing the source button on the remote control is how you normally turn it on again, (ie video FM CD etc)

it might be that moving the unit to the cabinite the battery power in the remote ( its not infra red its radio wave thay are not picked up by the fm antenna ) is insufficient to wake it up again,
change the batteries in the remote or try to see if there is some weird reason the cabinet is preventing these remote control radio waves from being recieved by the head unit, try opening the door and bring the remote within a few inches of the head unit and see if it turns on when you pres the cd button.

see how you go from there mate

My RCA keeps quitting on me.

U have a part in there that is changing value as it is used or gets hot.
Look for a bad capacitor in the power supply - when that goes bad everything shuts down.

Also check the plug going into the wall for a sound connection with the wall receptacle.

When turning dvd on the unit shuts off right away

Pretty common with that model. All you can do is try unplugging it for 10 minutes or so and try it again. If still bad, disconnect everything hooked to it and see if it stays on. If it does, hook up one item at a time to see if a speaker or something is causing the shutdown. If it doesn't stay on with nothing hooked to it, it has internal (possibly capacitors) that are bad.

There is a fuse in the back right by where the power cord goes into the unit. You can pick them up at Radio Shack pretty cheap. This seems to be an ongoing problem with this model. Good Luck

Phillips HTS3410D audio

You seem pretty anxious to perform surgery. Have you done traige yet?

It could be something as simple as a malfunction on a heaphone jack connection.

DO headphones work? Try using FM as the most basic source.

How do we know the internal audio is present and sufficiently loud to drive the speakers? If you have a tape deck or a TV with audio in connections, run an RCA jack to it and see if there's something there to listen to. No signal = no speakie = something other than the power amps failing = not those caps you read about.

BTW: don't use Maximum volume while troubleshooting. If you finally do touch the one thing causing the problem you'll probably launch the speaker cones right out of their enclosures and have to start all over again with blown speakers.

Th-m505 jvc help with no sound

Well i had exactly the same problem, my sub turned off right away when i turned the whole thing on. Well i opened the subwoofer and was trying to find out something unusual, i took out, i believe, internal amp, well, whatever that thing is, under the lid. Which one is screwed with 6 copper screws, so you unscrew those screws, lift that lid and that whole board comes out. On that board i find something like burn around one of the parts.

you can see it in the pick, the part q2902, then i contacted JVC. At the beginning they said i need to take the whole thing to service center and so on. But later i made them to tell me what kind of part that is, so here :
bought soldering gun in home depot for $15, returned after i was done. And that is it, just have to replace it, but total cost only $12 ($5 part +$7 shipping)

JVC TH-M505 powers off right away

The unit is going in to shutdown. My guess is a failed output. Service is going to be required.
