Question about Spherex Xbox 5.1 Surround Sound System Computer Speakers

Spherex xbox 5.1 doesn't turn on any more

It doesn't turn on and I don't see the red indicator on the IR module. I have tried replacing the fuses but still no go. I opened it up and don't see any visible burns on abnormalities. If someone can guide me through the inners of this system I can probably at least convert this to just a sub-woofer and get another receiver. thank you

    CORRECTION: upon further examination I saw slight burn marks on the four diodes located on the board with 2 power cables. Someone in another thread mensioned that the diodes need to be replaced and resoldered. Anyone know where can i find this stuff, what type of diodes I need, how to take the exisiting ones out? thanks

    I have same problem, except the red light on the receiver DOES still light up, and is currently on, just when i hit power on remote, no responce, and it doesnt turn on *I replaced the batteries in the controller, even though the green indicator light still lit up, and still not working*

first things first:
1) replace the board with another, if you has warranty.
2) RMS the xbox for a board fix. (paying for that)
3) you can take it to the repair electronic store, they sometimes have the schematics
good luck

Spherex XBOX surround system has started shutting itself down after around 30 seconds. Prior to this, the display starts "pulsing". Is this an inexpensive repair, or should I ditch the system and buy...


Hi there bud ....What i suggest is , if you still have a warranty , send it in and see what they can do....Otherwise Compare the price of a repair and a price of a new one...and there you go :)
Happy new year

Spherex Xbox 5.1 Surround suound..USB does not work


If the xbox is not able to recognise the usb, it is most likely that the product is not compatible with the xbox i would look for an adapter which would take the usb connection to the xbox's analog connection, or if your speakers have a stero 2.5 connection then you can easily find an adapter to connect to the xbox's analog connection in the back, the analog connection is the red and white ports at the back!.

Spherex surround sound wont stay on


Mr. Vargas is right mine also won't turn on and upon further inspection I found burn discoloration on the boad where the two power cables are connected. The burn spot is where the four diodes are locaed and the big power cable connection. I am not sure how to replace these diodes or where to find them. Never done this stuff but will try for sure. Please post if you have any suggestions. thanks
