Question about Lasonic Ghetto Blaster i931 Boombox

1 Answer

Hi, I bought my Lasonic Boombox a while ago. I turned it on and that only lasted for a little bit, then it made a buzzing noise, switched off and a bit of smoke came out of it. now it won't turn on.I think the fuse might be blown but I don't know what to do with it. Was is also something to do with the adaptor? cause I bought it in the US and I live in the UK so I don't know.

Sounds like its blown. If you bought it in the U.S. and tried to use it in the U.K. then you may have inadvertently fried the system. The U.S. uses 115 Volts AC and the U.K. user 240 Volts AC. If you plugged it in to the U.K. power with out a voltage reducer the radio received 240 volts of raw power instead of its required 115 volts it was built to handle.
Is possible a locale repair shop may be able to save it by replacing it's internal volta-pack, but it won't be cheap.
Hate to hear that happened to you, this is a great sounding radio! Don't feel bad this happens all the time as not many people know about the voltage difference between countries.

SOURCE: brand new lasonic i931 boombox wont turn on!!!

okay, i had a similar problem, and the problem turned out to be a bad connection. If you open up the battery box, in the bottom top left corner there is a positive connection wire that looks kind of like a "U".
this connection doesn't come in contact with the batteries, so you need to extend it by wrapping a small piece of wire or something to make it stick out more.

what we actually did was put a piece of 1/4 in. by 1 in. piece of copper flashing in the plastic slot and across the U shaped connector to increase conductivity and it works fine.

i hope this was helpful!

I plug in my lasonic blaster g31 when I put up the volume it turn off what is it


From the description the audio outputs are cutting out due to bad connections, or semiconductor failure. Check to make sure there are no shorts in the speaker wiring, if no change! take it back to the place of purchase for exchange or repair.

Sound comes out of left channel only in my Lasonic L-30K boombox


Check the speaker wire for proper contact, swap speakers around to rule out the speaker, if okay suspect the left audio output chip.

Hello,
if you connect the boombox direct to the your mains of 240v, the appliances will blow up , to avoid that you need a step down transformer to connect the boombox before it goes into the mains source. you do not need any adapter, only if you want to use battery that is when you to swicth to 12v

My Emerson 5812 Boombox will not turn on all of a sudden. I just bought it a couple months ago and it will not power on.


If its still under guarantee then take it back to the shop if you have the receipt. If not then it could be something as simple as a little glass fuse inside the boombox.

My boombox wont work when I put batteries in. It works fine when its plugged in but when I tried to play it using the batteries nothing happen. Please help. Thanks


A Lasonic 931 ? It has probably been taken apart by someone before you and may have unplugged the power feed from the battery compartment. Remove the rear panel then check the two wires that come from the battery box are connected to the circuit board.If not, then check to see where they go on the board, it`s not hard to do.Look for the little tabs they slide onto..

My lasonic ghetto blaster won't come on


Make sure the switch on the back is on the correct power setting. The cord is AC and the input is DC. On batteries, switch it to DC and use tinfoil or copper wire on the left top U shaped + battery receptor. on mine, it didnt connect with batteries without metal there
