You have some bad capacitors. Look for values at 160volts to 200volts at 1Mf,2.2Mf,3.3Mf or 4.7Mf. These are good candidates for your failing TV. Another one to look for are the 25volt to 35volt 100Mf caps. Good Luck and thanks for asking!

I got a 15" TS-VR15

Honestly man it sounds like you have burned up the voice coils inside the only way to fix it is to take it to a place where they specialize in fixing car subs.. And to be honest 80% of the time its just cheaper to go buy a new Sub. Sorry to hear that i know they arent cheap i burned up the voice coils in my 2 15" Kicker Comp CVR's and they wanted over 140$ to fix each one. And well to be honest after they tear off the factory glue whos to tell how long thiers will last. Hope this helps Dont forget to give me a good vote even though im sure you didnt want to hear that...

How to creat hiphop beat

I will walk you through standard hip hop beat construction and give you some sound development and production tips. There are two basic parts to a typical hip hop song: The Beat and the Vocals. Each consists of several tracks. While this article focuses on the construction of beats, lets lead off with a description of all the elements of a hip hop song so you can see how the beat fits .
This is the most important term to understand in Hip Hop construction, cause if you don't know it, you'll never understand what people are talking about. The Beat is basically, the whole song minus the vocals. It usually includes the following:
MIDI Drum patterns or audio drum loops, which comprise the complete drum tracks
A Bassline (MIDI sequence typically)
Supporting Orchestration (could be synth pads, string sections, horns)
Dubs and snips (samples that accent and give character)

Laying Down A Melody- This is where most hip hop beat-makers have the most trouble. Because most eat makers can't play the keys. For starters, you might want to learn basic keyboard skills. The major thing you need to learn are, major and minor scales. After you learn that, try and do different combinations and patterns with the drum beat you have made. Use an instrument like, a lead guitar, horns, clav, something that will stand out. Your melody can be however you want it, but for starters, you could do a 4 bar melody, or an 8 bar melody.

Hardware samplers have been making Hip Hop beats since the beginning. Those outfitted with "pads", like the MPC and MV8000, are convenient to use. However, software samplers, like Kontakt 2, Battery, Halion, Gigastudio are just as good and can offer more flexibility if your computer is strong enough to run one inside a sequencer. You can use a control pad surface like the Akai MPD16 to give you some hardware control over your software.
Hardware or software synthesizers can be used for constructing basslines and other elements of orchestration.

The Bounce- Now that you made you're beat, Its the hottest hip hop beat ever, you want to put it on cd or upload it to the internet. When you're exporting a beat for cd, Use .wav file. 44.1 16bit. If you want to upload to the internet use, 320kbps (the highest .mp3 quality) or 128kbps. Most websites wont accept 320kbps because the file size is too big. So go with 128kbps.

Garmin Nuvi 265 to get voice command to work?

this may require two sessions but - here goes:
1- turn the unit on - select the VOICE icon on the opening screen - triple check it isn't muted and change it to 90% voice volume.
If this doesn't give you sound WHILE DRIVING - it won't give you voice unless you're moving or driving.

Then - turn the unit off - Turn it back on- - as it is starting up - and blank- place your thumb in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the blank Screen.

this will open this window:
SELECT - YES - it will reboot and your minor settings will be lost - like saved address and favorites - not your updated maps.
This will reset you to default NEW -
When done - sound will be as it was when new if no sound - return for repair.

No sound in tomtom

The speaker has gone open circuit ( faulty speaker is common on this model ) or the headphone jack in the bottom is faulty ( also common on this model ) . The headphone socket has a switch inside it that switches the internal speaker OFF when an external speaker is plugged in . If this switch stays open you get NO VOICE .
You can check easily to see which fault you have.
  1. Take the SD card out
  2. switch on the tomtom
  3. do you hear the drums sound ?
  4. if you do ...... the speaker is OK
  5. Insert the SD card and wait till it loads up
  6. tap screen then select preferences
  7. move through and select " change voice "
  8. Check to see if you have a voice selected
  9. Return to main nav screen
  10. Tap screen just above lower left ( in the rectangle )
  11. The volume control should be UP
  12. if you have no sound when tapped here , the likely cause is open switch on the socket .
  13. Open up the tomtom , and clean switch carefully
  14. make sure when a PLUG is inserted the switch opens and when the plug is REMOVED the contacts close. properly
  15. Good luck , you have probably fixed it by now.
Please rate this if its been found to be useful to you.

No sound

Some TomToms ( especialy early ones ) are reported to have faulty speakers. Its most likely this is the fault on yours. Another problem particular to TomTom one is the external speaker jack on the base of the TomTom. Thsi jack socket also acts as a switch to turn off the internal speaker when and external one is used. When a plug is inserted it opens 2 contacts and they colse again after any plug is removed. If these contacts have remained open or been bent or become dirty this will cause no sound out of the internal speaker. However , there are routes the TomTom circuit uses to get sound to the speaker. One is direct ...... This is how you hear the TomTom Drums sound ...and the other is for 'most' other sounds , via the external speaker jack.
This gives us a possible check on any report of faulty sound as follows.
If you hear the TomTom drums OK , then this proves the speaker is OK too. BUT , if you hear no further sounds after the TomTom drums then it will be almost certainly be the speaker jack socket thats at fault.

Good luck
