Hello
There is some short inside its circuit board, and you are seeing the short indication. Usually, the short will be with its output section, especially output to subwoofer. In an output short, we cannot predict the which components have failed, because, modern sets' output section is closley related to its tone amp section, directly coupled with. Therefore, there may be some fault occured to that stage also. Sometime it may not be. But when replacing components in its output section, most of the tonel section components also should be checked, otherwise the replaced output component will fail as soon as you switch on the set. If you have sufficiant knoledge in digital elelctronics, you can do it by yoursef. A good qulaity digital multimeter must be with you to proceed. The more you need is patience and concentration. if you have all, go to its woofer output stage, and check for faulty component. OK.

Micropro 2000 has power but has no sound even for test tones. No test tones. What is it?


This could be either a source or a sub problem.

The missing piece to this puzzle is the source identity and setup. Is IT set up correctly for a subwoofer?

If you want to test the sub by itself just temporarily feed one of your FRONT speaker outputs directly to its Speaker IN connectors.

... Or ANY device or source you have can be directly connected to its RCA Line In. BE WARNED - IF IT WORKS IT WILL BE LOUD

Is this NEW? Or did it just fail spontaneously after working for awhile?

Is this just a remote control issue or is the sub dead, too?

From the manual...

No sound coming from subwoofer.

If hookup is "SUB OUT" to LFE, check and make sure your receiver is set to Subwoofer=YES. If hookup is via speaker wire, check that the polarity of the wires is correct.

Subwoofer has no power.

Is the AC MAIN switch on? Check outlet; check fuse after unplugging the subwoofer. The fuse is located under the power cord
receptacle. Fuse type and rating is found on the back panel.

Remote control doesn't work.

Remove the plastic tab to activate the remote control's battery or try replacing the battery. Ensure the IR sensor is not blocked.

See this blog article. If you don't notice any gaps, and tightening all the loose screws doesn't help, then the next likely problem is the flash unit itself is burned out. If so, this would require professional repair to correct.

DSW PRO 600 not getting signal from receiver. Why?


You don't name the electronics, which can be the source of the problem. See #3.

1. If you suspect the cable why don't you just swap in another RCA cable? BTW: there's no such thing as a "subwoofer" cable. Monster makes their money on those beliefs. Cables don't wear out but they can go bad if one or more conductors fails. Oxides devolp at either end which can inhibit conductivity. Remove each end and reinsert it with a twisting motion.

2. Maybe. You need to ensure the sub is defined. Run speaker level check. If no sound at the sub, prove the LFE/sub channel has output by running the RCA cable to a recorder or your TV (low volume). If there's no signal, duh, no speaker will work with it.

3. Mmm, not if it's exhibiting the same problem as the old one and the Polk 450. Have you looked at the setting of the Standby/Auto/On Switch? And the Power Mode LED's? Red is bad.
