Broken ihome At first my ihome speakers were fine, but then they started buzzing, and eventually went dead. I unscrewed everything and a small green square with blue cylinders on it didn't look right, so i tried to fix it, and it worked for a few minutes, but went dead again. I also tried putting in new batteries, but that didn't work. HELP!!!!

SOURCE: Center, surround speakers not working. "Can't Use" message for DSP.

Sounds like the old stuck button thing after a move??? What i mean it go over all the push buttons and maybe you will find one that is not pushing in and returning??? If alls ok then you should check the obvious like bent shafts or balance controls ect. ay have jogged something inside and you will need to see a pro to assit you unless you know how to trouble shoot solid state electronics?? These units have no real serviceable parts inside. Check with your owners manual for the sevicer nearest you. If they are not listed call the service # or try 1-800-289-AIWA . good luck

Check the speakers impedance. it should be greater then 6ohm otherwise you overload the system. Also, if the speaker sytem is rated (in Watts) below the amplifier's power it overloads the amp at higher volumes.

SOURCE: Speakers pop and rear speakers cut out of surround sound

Hi,
your problem is a bad solder connection of the relay linked to the lautspeaker sockets. I had the same problem and googled for the solution. Since I resoldered the pins everything is fine. That problem is well known and happens to a lot of Sony receivers.

I can send you a link with a detailed how-to-do solution with pictures, however it's written in german language. But you can use some online translators.

Power source harmonics. Or its power supply regulation. Check also if input line is touching something.

SOURCE: Alot of loud feedback through speakers, a loud buzzing noise

What sources make it happen or which do not? All buzzing = something in the amplifier end. is it from all speakers or just one?
One external source= RCA cables not grounded. Reconnect them tightly with a twisting motion to wipe off oxidation.

This is a grounding issue either between pieces of equipment or inside the receiver itself.
There are other possible causes, but this will almost always be a grounding issue.
I recommend unplugging everything and hooking it up piece by piece till the buzz return to isolate the issue.
IE - start with nothing but the receiver and speakers hooked up. Turn on the radio. If the speakers buzz, the receiver has an issue and needs to be repaired or replaced.

If there's no buzz, hook up the DVD player. If the buzz returns, there's some issue between the DVD and the receiver....
If the buzz hasn't returned, hook up the.....<insert name of next piece of equipment here>
you get the idea.

Maybe the capacitor in the power supply burned upon unplugging the heater. The power supply is a coil with iron core, next to it, there should be a rectifier and a capacitor. If the capacitor is burnt, the powersupply will still be working, but there will be noise on the line, the 50 Hz that comes out of your wall outlet. Capacitor of the same value can be bought for small change but has to be soldered in.

My ihome won't work. The ipod is playing, but there is no sound coming out of the ihome nor is the radio working.


Make sure you have power to the unit. Do you see indicator lights that show the unit is working. Speaker switch on?

Constant buzzing sound in all speakers


Sounds like either a transformer or amplifier problem. You haven't reversed polarity on the speaker connections? or changed the speaker sizes, Ohms, ect? Probably a resistor, diode, or condenser in the amplifier causing feedback through the speaker system. It's doubtful both speaker coils went out at the same time. Possible, but doubtful.And you mention that the volume "SPIKES" from time to time. Could be as simple as corrosion on the volume "pot". Basically a Rheostat that allows more signal the farther you turn the knob. If so, you can clean that yourself with a spray product available at any Radio Shack. It is for cleaning electonic components and leaves no residue. You could have this checked at any competant electronics shop, but BEWARE, the "Bench Fee" to test may be more than the value of the system. I would ask what the "bench fee" was to determine a problem, and then what the labor costs would be to repair either a transformer or amplifier with resistors, diodes, capacitors, ect. Electronic equipment tends to "break down" over time and use, and sometimes you can replace a component cheaper than repair. If part of a rack system, then you may want to retain this sub-part and repair may be your choice. I would ask about the fees to test, and the costs of labor to repair, before turning it over. How old is the system?

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod


When I first got my ipod touch and my ihome I had no problems and then all of a sudden everything worked except for the ihome wouldn't play music. It charged properly and the alarm and clock worked fine just the music wouldn't play. So I assumed it was the ihome and took it back and exchanged it only to get home and have the exact same problem. So I reset my Ipod and it worked. To do it you have to hold the sleep button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across it to turn off. Press and hold the sleep button until the apple comes on. Next I sync'ed and looke dfor an update. After all this I docked it and it worked.
