Question about Samsung HL-S4266W 42" HDTV

Open Question

Unhooking speakers Can I remove the front speaker cover? I unscrewed the four screws on the back but it appears to be attached in the middle somewhere. I ask because I have sound issues - a cap is fried on the board and it causes crackling noises when it warms up, even with internal mute on. We use a surround system for sound, so I just want to detach the speakers. I see no need to buy a $400 sound board when I have never used the TV speakers.

SOURCE: Surround Sound Not Playing For TV Programs

In the display window, do you see the letters ASC? If so,press the ASC button on the remote to turn it off. You should now have the TV sound thru the rear speakers. Enjoy...

SOURCE: Continuous crackling from TV speakers

I'm sure you have figured this one out. TV itself is causing the problems.
The circuit board that produces the audio signal seems to be the problem.
Before you call the repairman, go to the web site just to get an idea of what the parts will cost. That way he doesn't rip you off.

I hope I answered your question correctly. Please rate me. :)

SOURCE: 46" Samsung LCD, no sound output whatsoever

First try hooking up a different source such as a DVD player or Cable box and see if you have audio. If you do then check the audio output from the computer. If you do not have audio then make sure the tv audio is up half way and turn off the set. When you do this you should hear the down chime provided you have the chime turned "on". If you do not hear the down or up chime then the sudio circuits on the Main bd are bad and the Main bd will have to be replaced. A quick way to check to see if the audio circuits are working is to listen for the up or down chime when turning on of off the set coming from the tv speakers speakers.

How can I replace a tweeter for a 10 year old Cambridge Soundworks tower 2 speaker?

Its pretty simple actually.
If you already have the same size new tweeter. You take off of course the large felt cover so speakers are exposed on front. Just like your picture is in this post. Then you should see some screws, most likely it is going to be Phillips. Then unscrew all the screws, the whole front should slide out with of course speakers still attached, don't pull out to fast or far, to make sure the internal wires are long enough to take whole front out and set aside speaker box, the on back of speaker should be two wires going to it, maybe three if is tapped in conjunction with a ground. Anyway on back of speaker unplug the wire from speaker and then, take out screws which is normally on back of speaker, pull speaker out, put new one in and repeat steps in reverse order. Hope this helps. Mike

Hi , there is problem with my phone volume. I can


First of all, a temporary solution is for you to use a earpiece. You plug it on your phone and you will be able to hear the callers clearly.

If your phones main speaker is working, then it is the earpiece speaker that is bad. All you have to do is to replace the speaker with a new one. There are two speakers on this phone, one in front, which is the part where you get to listen to your callers from, then another speaker that plays your audio files and receive your calls on speaker mode.

To disassemble the phone, follow the steps below:
  1. Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Six screws need to be removed,
  2. Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment to release it from the rest of the phone.
  3. Now remove the two screws and you'll be able to lift away the metal plate with the identification sticker on.
  4. A ribbon connector needs to be detached. This attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug. You can now lift the circuit board away from the rest of the phone.
  5. Remove the eight screws you can see. These screws hold the slide part in place.
  6. You can now lift the slide part away from the rest of the phone. Four screws now need to be removed. The two on the left are covered with black stickers which can be easily removed.
  7. Now run your plastic tool all the way round the join of the front cover in order to release it.
  8. Three ribbons need to be disconnected. The two left and right attach like a plug and socket. Just lever each up to unplug. The ribbon in the middle has a different connection. To release it just flick the black latch up and pull the ribbon cable away from its socket. You can now lever the LCD screen out of the front cover.
  9. Then you see the earpiece and where it is connected to, just disconnect it, replace it with a new one, then you reverse the process to reassemble the phone back together.
Take care and good luck.

NB: When making a call, do not put it on speaker yet, then you increase the volume from the side of the phone where you have the volume button. If you do not hear the person calling you, then you replace the earpiece with the steps above.

I bought replacement drivers for Mission 780 do I replace visible screws...does the cover plate come off?

Screws are hidden under the plastic plugs where the covers slot in. remove cover, then maybe use a pencil and fingers to prize out the rubber "holes". Once all four removed, unscrew the four screws visible. Carefully lift off baffle, note that tweeter will be attached to the baffle. You then have easy access to the driver, again another four screws holding that in. You may find erosion on the terminals.

Removing Driver from Sealed Cab

1. Remove the front cover.
2. Remove the four bushes that held it in place. Beneath them are crosshead screws.
3. Remove these screws, and the surround board they hold.
4. You can now see the bass speaker retaining screws. remove them and withdraw the speaker *carefully*. (A knife under the edge helps to get it going.) The wires are at the back mixed up with the damping wool.
5. The tweeter has its retaining screws under the rubber gasket stuck to it.
6. The connectors shoud slide off the lugs, but mine are pretty stiff. Careful with the tweeter's: mine pulled out the termnal completely, and I've had to replace the unit!

Logitech Z-5500 Speaker stand problem

The stand was held on with a nut on the inside. There is not longer a nut on the inside of the hole, so there is now nothing for the stand screw to attach to. The nut is now stuck to the magnet on the speaker. You will need to disassemble the speaker housing to remove the nut from the speaker magnet and reattach then stand. peace. Paul.
