Memorex speaker keeps cutting out. I believe the little black wire hookup is cracked where it is connected to the unit inside housing of speaker. The pic of type of speaker is at the top of the page where...


These housings are often glued together at the factory and are not meant to be opened. You may have to break it to get inside. If the wire to the voice coil is broken...really no fix, if the wire is bad between the case and the speaker you can probably fix it.

How to change speaker wires?


Depending upon where and how thoroughly the wire was chewed, you may be able to cut out the bad section and splice the remainder.

Mixer will only play through one speaker; this is same with organ, microphone and ipod connected. Swopping jacks results in speakers swopping proving that woring is good, but mixer will not play both...


Sounds to me like either an open wire or a blown speaker. I would highly recommend not operating it until it is fixed before you blow the amp. Tapping a 9V battery across the speaker (disconnected from amp) will cause a noise in the speaker, if not it is a broken wire or bad speaker. Good Luck

When you turn player on: Screen said "Hello" , then "Protection"


Sounds simple... usually "protection" means that a speaker or a speaker wire is shorted out. Or that the volume is just too damned high... how loud is the receiver's volume setting? If the bass tone control is jacked and the loudness button is on, even with no shorted wires, the amp can go into protection from an internal overdrive. Might be that you just need to do like your mom says and turn it down!
If you have an ohmmeter, speaker or wiring problems are easy to test, if you don't, you can still do it all mechanically... here's how
Turn off the receiver and start by disconnecting your speaker wires at the back of the receiver. With all of the speaker wires removed, does the thing still go into protection when you turn it back on?
If not, good. If it does, find a service center.
Re-connect the speakers to the appropriate terminals one speaker at a time, turning off the receiver each time you make a connection. After connecting one speaker, turn the receiver on and see if it shuts down. If not, then turn it off and add one more speaker.
Do this until you find the culprit. Leave that suspected bad speaker's wires disconnected from the receiver and test all the rest, connecting all but the bad wires.
Now, disconnect the speaker from the other end of the bad wires and spread the bare wires apart so they don't short out. Connect the wires ONLY at the amplifier end and turn the amp back on. Protection?
If yes, the wire is shorted out somewhere. got cats?? If everything is OK, turn off the receiver and reconnect the speaker and test again. Make sure the wires aren't shorted at the back of the speaker. You really need to check all the speakers to make sure their connections are "clean" and make sure that there are no stray wire strands anywhere or that the wires aren't stripped too much so they might be able to short out. After the wires are connected to either a speaker or an amplifier, you shouldn't be able top see much of any bare wire, but you already know that, right?
Some folks strip way too much off the wire and the wires simply touch the wrong things and ... badness happens.
If all the connections are clean and the receiver still shuts down when this speaker is connected and the receiver is turned on, swap a working speaker onto these wires, leaving the suspect speaker disconnected and making sure the other bare wires won't touch anything or each other.
Back on with the working speaker... good? If so, then we're determining that the problem is probably in that one speaker. If not, then we have a deeper problem.
Reconnect the suspect speaker to the other wires and try again. Good? Then you have "fixed" the problem by cleaning up the wiring connections. If it shuts down again, then you need to fix or replace the bad speaker.
If everything works now with the volume down and such, then just use a little self control. If it's still messed up, you may need a trip to the service shop
Good Luck

Speaker for right ear does not work


Open the right headset speaker. You will find two points where the wires are soldered. desolder any one wire from the speaker. Now take the multimeter and set it for measuring Resistance (Ohms) touch the prods of the Multimeter to the two points on the speaker, if it reads 8, 16 or 24 Ohms then your speaker is ok If it reads very high resistance or open circuit then speaker is bad. If speaker is ok then the two wires soldered on speaker are open or short.replace either one.

Speaker of garmin nuvi 660 doesn't work anymore


Bruce,

I measured a speaker on a Nuvi that I had opened up on my repair bench. It measured 7.8 ohm. I'm pretty confident that your speaker is bad.

Center speaker channel


This sounds like a bad connection inside the receiver. A 5 minute fix with a soldering iron and about 30 minutes to get to it.
If you can solder you should be able to fix this yourself.

first you have to test separatly your speakers outputs
disconnect all wires speaker and speakers, turn on your reciever and look if you still have the same problem «CHECK SPEAKER WIRES alert» if yes you have to go to a specialist to fix it... if no test one line after one line with and without speaker connected until the problem reappear to locate the bad line or bad speaker.

No sound on nintendo ds. How do I fix?


The speakers are wired from the ribbon cable that also provides the top screen illumination. That cable gets plenty of abuse by opening & closing the DS. Could be a break/tear in that ribbon cable. Does either speaker work? both are bad? If neither work, it's a rather involved process to fix yourself (soldering, etc). You can mail it away for service. Call Nintendo to get a quote.
