Question about Audio Players & Recorders

3 Answers

I have a Sharoer Image iTower speaker for my iPod. Mine was working great in the morning and then in the afternoon didn't. When the power is connected, I get a patterned beating sound of what I'm playing, and the LED light on the power unit flashes in rhythm with the choppy sound. When I unplug the power unit, the LED light is solid. I just got this iTower in the last 4 weeks and love it. Sharper Image is no longer supporting any products due to it's closing. The instruction manual is pretty simple with no guidelines for troubleshooting or resetting. Anyone have any ideas of how to fix this?

Hi markminter

Sounds like you have an ailing power supply there. check that all connections are well plugged in, other than that, it would appear to have gone faulty. I would suggest returning it and getting a refund. Best bet for this situation.

Unsupport this accessory Is what keeps coming up


I have seen this happen as well. Usually it is caused by corrosion on the cable connectors. Clean the connectors with rubbing alchol or electrical cleaner and see if that helps. It may only work for a while as over time the corrosion comes back. It usually happens on cheep aftermarket cables.

Well you've lost power to one or two major circuits. Could be a problem with the key switch or a major fuse in the engine compartment.
I would check the fuses for power and find out which ones are dead then go from there.

I need replacement speakers, a sub woofer actually, for my Sharper Image iTower SM252.


I would measure the diameter of the subwoofer driver and take a look at Parts Express' website ( www.parts-express.com ). Chances are that they will have a suitable replacement.

03 silverado radio worked this morning.started it in afternoon no sound but display lights up.


No solution but same problem. However mine intermittent. It will come on and run the passenger side speakers and then shut off. All panel displays are on. Next day same thing. I think it has something to do with weather. When it is below 30 deg it doesn't work. When it gets 45 deg and up it works somewhat. It sounds like a bad circuit board connection.

Power plug for iTower S1333


I just bought a replacement power supply with the round 4-prong plug for the i333 from lcdpayless on e-Bay.  Contact them and maybe they will sell you the plug only. Link is below:
