Friend you must review your warranty, if it is covered by the warranty period you may exercise your right within the warranty agreement. Some warranty agreement specifies that a unit may be replaceable withiin warranty period and with some conditions. If you have met the conditions then your item can be replaceable.
I hope this would help you.

Can my powered subwoofer be fixed?

Possibly, It took a while but I had a pair of 25 year old JBL Subs repaired after many said they cant be fixed. Have a look on line or in the phone book for your nearest amplifier / speakers / musicians electronics repair shop.

Changing the type of fuses in your receiver will not change your sound quality at all.

Where do i plug in my ipod in the HK AVR65

There is not a direct connection you can use on this receiver, so you option is to purchase an inexpensive adapter that hooks into the headphone jack of you iPod/iPhone/iPad and splits off into an audio/video cable with a red and white RCA connection. Then you may either chose to hook it into the front input or a specific rear input to send the output to the receiver and play music through your receiver. I don't know for sure, but if you are looking to be able to control it via a remote also and potentially gain video output I think there may be an accessory docking station you can connect to your receiver and doc it to. Check the manufacturers website to see if your model supports this accessory.

Have a da555es stereo receiver. Fuses blow as soon as you plug it in to wall socket. Receiver is approx 10 yrs old and just started doing this. Any ideas?

If fuses blow out imediatelly its a sign that its something wrong in the imput area eg the power pcb or transformer pcb. try to see is there in its supply some electronical parts broken or some bad wire isolation.

Denon AVR2106 receiver lost center channel, third time

Its possible you center channel is fried and keeps burning up the channel output on the reciever. Next thought is that, yes it was a bad model. First make sure that the speaker is good by putting another speaker in its place, or by checking the speaker with another system for sound quality. If it sound high pitched and it takes alot of volume to hear, than its toast and get rid of it.

My old KOSS TD/60 Stereophones have a broken cable right near the earphone entry point. How can I open the earphone to repair or replace the cable?

I figured that that the earphones were pretty old, so if my 'repair' didn't work I would just replace them with new ones. There is a groove filled with acoustic foam that runs right around each earcup that terminates at the cord's entry point. After removing the headband yoke by carefully popping it out of each earcup I simply gripped both sides of the earcup and applied outward pressure until the front and back halves separated. Fortunately they are held together by plastic clips that snap apart. Once I had located the fault in the cable and repaired it the earcup halves easily snapped back into place. I now have a functioning set of headphones again!

Docking connector for sonic impact if2

Had the same problem for a while, not been able to find any useful info anywhere.

Got a little bored today and decided to have a go myself.

First remove the battery.

The exterior zipped cover is glued to the plastic electronics compartment, careful prising (the cover is fairly flexible) can loosen the glue enabling you to remove the compartment.

Unscrew the plastic cover under this you will see the the pcb that the dock connector is attached to, along with lots of glue holding the wires for the speakers.

Unscrew the pcb and remove all the pcb connectors (all glued secure), then you will have access to the side you need to solder.

Now all you need is a hawk-eyed soldering genius as the tabs on the connector are extremely fine and closely spaced.

After testing I'd also recommend gluing the dock connector to the pcb for added future security.

Hope this helps.

Hi Tamatar

The LED(green light) will have dry jointed on the board it mounts(solders) to. You could pull them apart and resolder the broken connection, not to big a job if you have a soldering iron and tools. They don't make em the way they used to!!

Mono only mode problem

It sounds as if you have dirty or sicky relays in the speaker outputs. These relays are there so protect the amplifier's circuitry should there be a problem with your speaker system. If the amp detects a fault it won't switch the relay to allow the speaker to be used. Obviously you don't have a speaker problem but because the relays are dirty or sticking audio isn't being allowed through. By tapping the unit it's activating the relays as it should. If you wish to find the culprits, WITH THE POWER PLUG PULLED OUT. look for small clear plastic boxes on the motherboard, Maybe 1 1/2 inches tall and and inch square. With a bit of pulling and luck the clear plastic top should pop off and leave the innards on display. Gently insert a very fine file between the contact points and give them a few rubs. Do this to all the contacts and put the plastic top back on. Try the unit out and see if one channel works. If it's all OK do the rest in the same way. It's these relays which you hear clicking by the way. If they're dirty they'll still click but not do their job. bmw
