Question about Philips MMS171 Computer Speakers
Speakers have been plugged in a playing since OCT.2009. 2 days ago i tried to listen to PROJECTPLAYLIST where i have several personal playlists and no sound. i tried to troubleshoot but nothing. when i go to CONTROL PANEL>SOUND&AUDIO DEVICES>under volume i see that is is on LOW>but there is no option or anyway to drag volume but to HIGH.
The problem that I found with the mms 171 is the sound control function knob. When I took the component apart and took a closer look it appears the unit may have over heated a bit, I found some discoloration on the circuit board. When after I played with the reluctor wheel a bit it started to work again. I'm thinking what is going on is the unit heats up and warps the metal brush and it doesn't make contact any more. A simple fix is to take apart the knob a gently push the brush back down on to the circuit board (see picture)"><a rel='nofollow' href="http://s1088.photobucket.com/albums/i325/porkchopz28/?action=view&current=DSCN1604.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1088.photobucket.com/albums/i325/porkchopz28/DSCN1604.jpg" border="0" alt="NO SOUND FROM SPEAKERS - Photobucket"></a>
