PAradigm ps-1000 subwoofer

Powered subwoofer. When i plug it in it will power on and then turn off right away with no further signs of life. I have replaced the fuse a couple of times but this time it did not help. Does it sound like the power supply is bad or transformer??? Do you have any suggestions on where I can get parts for the paradigm subwoofer. Let me know.
Thanks

    I have a similar problem accept my sub has no signs of life. The yellow LED does not illuminate when I turn I send it a signal. Checked the fuse - looks ok. I've contacted Paradigm and they've advised me to return the amp for investigation and repair. They estimate the cost at $75 - $150 plus $10-$15 for shipping.

    My PS1000's just had the same problem. For a few days now, it did work, but did not power on automatically, I had to pull out and plug back in the mains lead several times before it would power up.

    Now it just wont turn on at all. Since im in the UK im stuck on what to do about it.

It turns out its most likely one of the resistors on the PCB on the amplifier plate.

My uncle has had the same problem and managed to replace the resistor and its working as normal now.

I have a PS 1000, circa 1995, I have a constant humming sound and it sounds like it has a problem with the volume knob. It will cut in and out when I move the knob, so I'm assuming thats the problem. If one of your subs dies, can I have your volume knob? Just kidding.

My Paradigm PDR-10 subwoofer needs a new fuse (1.5amp 250v) but I cant find the physical location of the fuse on the sub anywhere. Ive looked at it for a long time now. Any help? Thanks, Bryan Tal


Try right behind the power panel. Certain models you have to remove amplifier back panel. Then some are soldered on and some are encased in some kind of holder usually by the power input. Be carefull of electric shock. Make sure device is un-plugged while powered on to help with discharging internal capacitors if possible or drain caps with appropriate resistor to drain them safely if possible.

Paradigm pdr80 no sound


If it is a powered sub, the sub power supply may have failed. There might be an open fuse.

I have a paradigm ps 1000.it powers on fine when i plug in the rca cable into thoe back of the sub into the low level input it humms supper loud. i tested my cable and used another one same thing. could...


It sounds like it has bad ground on the RCA input assembly, you should Ohm out the ground of the RCA jacks to see if they are all connected.
How about the sender side (the amplifier) ground?

My paradigm ps1000 speaker does not turn on what's wrong ?


Check all fuses and plugs, if they are OK your power supply may have failed.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

Our ten year old paradigm ps 1200 subwoofer does not power up, although it is plugged in and properly connected to the receiver. Why is this? Is it a lost cause?


Disconnect the power, pull the amplifier out by undoing the screws that hold it in.
When you pull it out, look closely towards the top there is a little 1.8A fuse. It probably has blown.
Replace that and you should be back in business.

How long should a powered sub woofer last? It's on 24/7, but is not abused with long, loud playing. Mostly regular TV.I have a Paradigm PS1000, about 10-12 years old.


There's no way of telling really! Even if something did go wrong there's no reason to say it couldn't be fixed very cheaply. It could last another 10 years or it could go wrong in the next few hours.
I will say one thing after 12 years of service and never off you certainly have had your monies worth!

Power source


I have PS-1000 and same problem. It looks like power transformer got partially shot (reads 11 V AC instead of 56)
I just don't know if it's all the problem or there is something else. And where I can find replacement transformer?
