Re: No power to subwoofer i already check every thing

Good day!!
Well, depending on the brand, or model, of your particular SPK, you can change your sub for another, if warranty you has.
another thing is check for inside fuse, may be is fried, but carefully open and see if your sub has a FUSE.
well, thats it! my friend

Subwoofer not working

The subwoofer is dependent on a sound amp powered by an external source whereby the speakers are powered by the line output from the sound source (like a computer speaker out jack). Powered Subwoofers controlled by a power amplifier require a power source such as an AC/DC source plugged into the house power. If the device is defective or a mismatch, the subwoofer will not function. Try a new power transformer and see if that fixes the problem. Other than that, if the power transformer is good, then the woofer could be defective.

My subwoofer and speakers wont draw power when i plug it in, could it be the fuse or something else?

The Altec Lansing A425 doesn't appear to have a fuse. Check for a circuit breaker on any surge protectors it might be plugged in to and make sure they haven't been tripped. Confirm that the power cord is firmly plugged in. Additionally, you could check the wall transformer with a multimeter to make sure it is providing the correct voltage needed by the speakers. Check the back of the subwoofer for a hidden power switch. If everything is plugged in and turned on, but you still don't have power, you will either need to open the device up and troubleshoot it or replace it.

The green light on the two speakers and subwoofer will not power on. The power button is on however ther is no power.

There could be a fuse gone in the plug or in the power supply itself. Try a universal power supply to see does that solve the problem.

Need to install speakers onto my computer

This would be a fix but if you do not mind that its not the same as the subwoofer is to buy two sat speakers from radioshack with the plug that goes into the subwoofer.

Subwoofer powers itself off

I Think its a loose connection in electric circuit. Due to vibration in the woofer the connection might be going off. Check the power circuit for any loose connections.

Subwoofer has a constant vibrating tone that will not go away

I suspect that what you are hearing is the 60 cps of the mains. If the humming sound is coming the subwoofer itself, then it is possible that you have a defective/leaky capacitor in the power supply section of the subwoofer. In the subwoofer, if the buzzing sound is coming from anywhere else other than the speaker itself, then it is possible that you have a loose transformer again in the power supply. Unless you are comfortable working with testers and soldering irons, I would suggest an electronics technician who should be able to diagnose and fix it for you.

Subwoofer hums under power not hooked to system & hooked up?

This may or may not apply to your particular problem. On similar humming sound problems, I normally would look for either a fault in the input side and/or a leaky/defective capacitor in the power supply. On the input side, this may be a frayed shielded wire, loose connector (esp. the outer which is normally the ground). Try completely removing the connecting/input cable that goes into the subwoofer. If that doesn't work, then it you may want to check the big capacitor in the power supply section of the subwoofer. If you are not that familiar in working with power supplies, may I suggest that you ask any electronic technician to have a look at it since capacitors store a rather hefty voltage. Better be on the safe side. Hope this works out ok with you
