Question about M-Audio Studiophile BX5 Main / Stereo Speaker
My monitors(studio phile bx5) get no sound. The lights are on and if I touch the bass speaker I get a loud electric humming noise but no music, At first I thougt it was the input apparatus but I have hooked them up to several different components and the same problems persist.

This sounds like it may be a loose connection (ground) generation common mode noise or it may be a capacitor in the power supply going bad and not providing enough filtering of the AC voltage (allowing for 60 cycle hum). You should get a schematic for the speaker or just take some rule of thumb measurements of the power supply output, with an oscilloscope (you will be looking for ripple voltage, what you could do is use one of your good speakers as a comparison of good to bad.
If you do not want to work on this yourself, you could take the speaker to any TV repair shop or audio repair shop.
I hope this helps

Don't bin! This should be a simple fault to rectify.
Fault finding technique as follows:
Trace mains voltage up to main transformer - there could be a standby transformer with relay in parallel. Check mains voltage all the way until it stops. If you have voltage up to main transformer, check that you have low voltage at the other end - if not main transformer at fault. If you don't have, then check to see if you do have a standby transformer - much smaller and usually on small circuit board near where power comes in to speakers. They are notorious for blowing on many audio systems as they are constantly connected to mains unlike most of the other components - power spikes kill them in particular.

This is power problem, the cable might be ok but power might not be getting to the panel to power on the monitor, i will advice you give the monitor to a local repairer to help diagnose the panel on your monitor, the power diode on the panel might be bad or burnt, and will need replacement.
This is the best option since you are not electronically inclined.

Hi, cases like that always comes u. Earlier you said just replaced it, that's not too good for anew monitor speaker.
You could test the fuse inside the speaker if it's still working, might be power fluctuation that might have caused it to blow.but you need to test it. If it is the fuse,fine! you can replace it, it does not cost much to replace.
Also if i can recall,most new stuffs always comes with guarantee with it,right?. I would suggest you could take it back and get a replacement, and i guess if they see it,since it is on guarantee,they can fix it for you without even charging you a penny.
Hope that helped.
Thanks and feel free to pass on your comment.
Thanks for using fixya..
