Step 2:REPAIRING PROCEDUREin below items there are repairing procedures that i did with my THX550.to access to BCboards it is required to remove electronic boards from woofer case.
1- remove cover of woofer.2- remove woofer speaker from case by cutting and marking connected wires.
3- remove all Philips screws around cover and remove electronic parts smoothly, care about glues around power cord.4- remove and disconnect power supply board from other parts.
5- replaced switcher TOP234Y and capacitors C102, C206, C205 and D10 as below photos.6 check all of reCreative cambridge sound work megaworks thx 5.1 55 - 3_12_2013_8_10_00_am.jpgg area.
7- now it is time to re assemble electronic parts very carefully and prepare for test. it is better to use isolated transformer and put a lamp in serial to protect PCboard against short circuit. if green LED (POWER LED) is on it mCreative cambridge sound work megaworks thx 5.1 55 - 3_12_2013_9_02_39_am.jpg O.K.
