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.
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.

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.
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.
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!
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?
