Harman Kardon soundsticks do not work

My soundsticks, which I have had for approximately 4 years hav esuddenly stopped working. There is power to the sub woofer and there is a very faint basey sound. I have checked all the wire connections visibly and it sounds as if something has blown. I am not sure if it is worth trying to repair them or should I put them in the bin. It would be a shame since they are reasonable. 
Thanks, Spencer

    8 years functioning great.Now after a year or so of listening at low volume (baby in da house) the sub seems to work at half or less of its former potential. Still works but almost no base in the sound. I just plugged everything in and out for a few times, didn't dare to open it, got no result. I'm from Serbia where the spare parts for these products are as common as palm trees in Syberia. Help!

No sound, any ideas

Please try to connect the system to another sound source, such as to a different computer, or for example to an MP3 player or mobile phone. If the system is still not working, then most probably there is a problem with the Jack cable or with the sub-woofer's mother board. A very important segment is to check whether the whole system is not working, or possibly the woofer works, because this might answer some further questions and narrow down the problem. Please also kindly check if the blue led in the Sub is glowing.

I have a Bose powered sub woofer, which I would like to connect to a pioneer receiver, the subwoofer (model 2683) connection has a four pronged connection (yellow white red blank) and the receiver has a...

Hi,sorry but you can not connect it directly like other sub-woofers..
Bose 2683 Powered Subwoofer is part of Bose Lifestyle 5 system, Please note that you will need the 5-pin DIN cable that connects the subwoofer to the base or "Music Center". and the 4 pronged connections for its own stereo speaker output not input from another stereo..
Sorry....but if you can arrange some handy man nearby ,he may get into the DIN cable to locate the subwoofer signal 2x input leads than you can use that leads for connecting into single sub woofer out let of your system...otherwise try to sell BOSE which can easily buy brand new up to date powered sub..

Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

Hope this helps!

My Harman Kardon Soundsticks 2 stopped working. They are plugged in, I restarted, the loudspeakers are at 100 and NOT muted, and still I can hear nothing. What do I need to do to resolve this please?

Ok, let's see if we can work this out. You say the speakers are at 100. Where are you seeing this 100? You say the speakers are NOT muted. Where are they NOT muted?
Is the light on in the sub-woofer? Is the volume turned up on the right hand speaker?
Plwase answere these and then we'll see what to do next.
