Hi Jim,

Somthing in the transmitter has become thermally intermittant. I ran across these problems quite frequently on the bench and the best way to find the defective component is to use cicuit cooler on the individual parts until you hit the troublemaker. Of course you do this while the unit is on and connected to a signal source so that when it starts to work you'll know it. There are no voltages inside high enough to worry about. Does the light go off on the transmitter when it quits??

I have the speakers and power adapter but i can not find the transmitter....can i purchase the transmitter only..??


any transmitter will work by RCA..... The one for the WHP141 works just fine and that headphone set w/transmiter is about 19$ on Ebay as well as other places, be aware that the transmitter will not transmit UNTIL the sound source is hooked up and the sound is high enough to trigger the transmitter into working..... do not expect the green light to come on simply because it is plugged in, because it wont.....also if the sound is not high enough from the source the sound will cut in and out......notice also that the transmitter power supply is the 19 Volt one, and the tip is - and the out side ring is the + reversed of what many after market power supplys are.........the cool thing is the gain of a set of decent head phones as well as being able to use the speakers.....so many people fail to even READ the instructions and think that the units are defective because the green light does not stay on when pluged in......pays to read.....

The line fuse blows on power up. Input impeadance to the power transformre is 3 ohms. Is this correct? seems low.


Ohms law I=V/R which is 240vac divided by 3 ohm = 80 amps. Dead short which is either the windings, or the mains filter capacitor which has gone short circuit which is more the likely culprit. This is on the output side of the fuse. If you have a meter switched to ohms and measure across this capacitor you will read zero ohms (dead short) which confirms the capacitor. Disconnect one side and if the short goes, then it's the cap, if not, it's the transformer.

AR Wirells Speak Transmitter Stopped Working


Hi there ,

Let me know if you did the steps below, then we can proceed form there:

Try unplugging the transmitter from power adapter, if it also has batteries remove them. Also unplug transmitter audio cable.

Then remove batteries/unplug adapters from speakers.

Wait few minutes and reconnect the system.

This is a proper hard reset, and can fix minor problems.

If when you re connect the transmitter does not glow, or you do not have sound on one or both channels then there is a fault.

Check the transmitter audio cable, a short in there can cause troubles.

GETTINF OVER HEAT


Onkyos are notorious for running a bit warm - though if yours is excessively warm, double-check the impedance of, and wiring -to- your drivers.

Subwoofer issues


Hi,

The fuse blows when the current that passes through it are beyond its rating. This could be brought about by excessive consumption of the load, in this case the amplifier powering the sub-woofer.

Repairs would involve component level and require that you be familiar with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Often it is just the finals that needs to be replaced. Of course we cannot discount the possibility of other components or section such as the power supply.

The smoke indicates something heating up such as a resistor or diode or a capacitor.

Should you be uncomfortable opening the unit and doing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then perhaps you need to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, purchase of a new unit might save you further trouble.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Wsp150 transmitter failure


The following alternative may solve your problem:
Check to make sure the volume on the audio source is set to a normal volume. If the volume is too low, the transmitter will not turn on.
