Re: oops!

It could have triggered a signal to your powered speakers that was not able to handle it. you may busted your output stage (power amp) and went on standby protection mode.

How do I get Flip 2 speaker to pick up signal?

On the main on/off button, each quadrant acts as a different switch, left & right for volume up/down, and the bottom for bluetooth. You need to press this and whilst the bluetooth light is blinking you need to go to the bluetooth section of the source device and the speaker will be shown on screen and you need to click/tap "Accept" to initiate pairing with your Speaker. I don't know how long you will have to complete the pairing as different items remain discoverable for different times after pressing the bluetooth button.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Make the sure the cables are connected properly to the monitors, as in Left Positive to Left Positive, Left Negative to Left Negative on both ends of the cable. Having one polarity switched can burn out your speaker and internal electronics.... I'm speaking from experience. When you burn up a $400 speaker by incorrectly connecting them... it's a big OOPS that makes you feel pretty dumb. Even as a professional A/V guy, it happens.... and sucks. If this doesn't fix the problem, contact Yamaha or an authorized dealer about it. Could be bad electronics internally, but my guess is it's the cables being improperly connected.

65a Resolv studio monitors. The left one just blew out -- maybe. The blue LED stays dim, as though the monitor has been sleeping. When I power off the monitor, the speaker gives a loud pop, and the cone...

You are getting DC offset voltage on one of your amplifiers that is the reason the speaker pushes out and you might be hearing a humming noise too. Do not turn on the speakers till you get it fixed or else you would end up burning the speaker voice coil too.The dim blue LED is also an indication of a short circuit in the output stage.
Your left amplifier needs a output chip (IC ) replacement. You will need professional help to do that. Will cost you about 20$ plus service charges.

I have a pair of JM lab Electra 905 speakers, running through a DNM amp and power amps. When powered up, the left speaker makes a very loud humming noise. This has happened recently. I haven't changed...

Switch on your amp, keep its volue down to extreme low, and listen if there is still hum through the left channel or not. If still there is hum, the left side power amplifier section inside the amp;ifier is faulty. If htere is no hum at this state, hum enters thorugh the audio input terminal, and the input wires must be checked for open sheild connection. OK.

I just installed speakers in my 1995 blazer 4

It shouldn't have anything to do with your speaker wiring, there's no light wires down there that i know of. The only thing that comes to mind is the door sensor, make sure you didn't pinch it off or something, if your speakers work you didn't wire anything wrong, just check the wires going to the door sensor switches....

Speaker stops after a few minutes

I was having the same problem but I seemed to solve it by having the laptop volume maxed and using the dock to control volume. I think that it has a sleep function where if it is not getting a signal it powers off and for some reason the laptop isn't putting out a strong enough signal to keep it awake. Maxing the laptop volume seems to give it a constant enough signal so that the problem went away.

Panasonic SC-PT467 Wireless speakers Clicking

I had this exact problem. The clicking is something to do with interference from the power supply cable. It seems that facing the wireless unit in the most obvious way ensures that the power cable and the right speaker cables cross. All I did was turn the unit around so that the wires no longer crossed and magically the clicking sound disappeared forever!!!

Good luck !!
