SOURCE: bose companion speaker stopped working!?

What happened to you is probably mere coincidence with your cousin's use of the headphones and this is throwing you off. I own the Bose Companions also and they stopped working as well. However, I traced the problem to the "wall wart" power supply. Not sure why but Bose is now using an interchangable plug on them. If you look at the power supply you will see a "PUSH" button. If you depress it the plug can slide out. When it is slid back in and locked in place the connection between the plug plate and the power supply is not a good one. Try fiddling with it. But even if the connection is not the culprit, something in the power supply is. I swapped another power supply with the same connector and spec's ( amps must be the same ) from another item and the speakers worked perfectly.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, the 14 seconds interval is significant. This is indicative that whatever fault it is, it is coupled to a time-based circuitry. The time-based circuitry need not be complicated. it can actually be a simple resistor/capacitor network. The capacitor takes a certain amount of time to charge and then discharge (14 seconds, 'whoomp'). Having said this, then the foremost suspect would be an electrolytic capacitor, probably low value (1~4.7uF), probably a coupler/decoupler. Of course the capacitor serving other functions could very well be the culprit as well.

Corrective measure would entail, identifying/determining which capacitor and replacement. Tedious as it may sound, each capacitor would then have to be tested for capacitance and leakage out of circuit or at least 1 leg un-soldered.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

My puppy chewed through the cord for my a/c adapter, I just took the speakers into Circuit City, and they found me a workable replacement (the replacement isn't BOSE, but it works just fine).  Hope that helps!

My Bose Companion III Computer Speakers have stopped working.All connections are fine but no sound is produced


This may sound obvious and you might have checked this already, but check all of your mute keys. If the speaker's volume control is down, that's one. If there's one on your keyboard you could accidentally hit, that's one. If the sound properties on your computer insist sound is coming out, try a different set of speakers, or try the speakers on a different device like an iPod. Get back to us if you still have problems. Hope this helps =]

Hello,

I have had totally the same problem before, and I have discovered that it is actually because of the electric current running through the speakers when the volume is low or muted.

I am afraid to tell you that the only solution to this problem is to raise the volume, as it is not a malfunction in the speakers but in the electric current running through them.

Good luck.
