Question about Sony SA-WM500 Subwoofer

3 Answers

No sound Like everyone, my unit turns on but no sound. There is no click after the 5 second delay. I went ahead and pulled the board out and checked for any lose connections and there is none that i can see. The fuse is good, the speaker does work and there was no lose wires. The sub worked great for about 2 years and just stopped making any sounds, there is no vibration even coming in to the sub from the amps hum when it turns on. It worked perfect before and like others i never had a wine. Please help. thanks James

    I'm having this same issue. I have verified that it is receiving soundsignal from the receiver, but the speaker never makes a noise.

    Aside from the loose pin on the relay, is there anything else that could be causing this?

I had the same exact problem, here is what someone else suggested I do:

I had a problem with no audio and I recently found the fix. When thesub still worked and you turn it on you hear one relay click and thenabout 5 seconds later a second relay clicks and the audio comes on. Theproblem I had lies with that second relay. When you take the case apartthere are 4 circuit boards. The big board with the two big bluecapacitors is the main board. Well next to the two blue capacitors is ablue relay. That relay had a pin that came un-soldered from the circuitboard. I re-soldered that pin and the sub works just like new.

My problem is just like the ones posted here, i do not get the 2nd relay to click after 5 seconds or at all . I did remove the board and looked for loose solder joints i found nothing. Under the blue relay talked about here it looks as if a clear liquid is on the board could this have leaked anything? There is a white compound around the caps and the relay but i would like to think that was for vibration? Any place to get this relay if i need to replace it ?

Power Distribution Center(PDC) located under hood in upper drivers corner. Check all relays and fuses. And check the voltage on the battery, kinda seems like it is dicipating slowly. An engine requires 10 volts to the starter to deliver 10 volts to the crank shaft, Your hearing noises coming from the fuse box check those fuses replace every one needs replacing. At the PDC you will find a light fuse for interior lights for dash board, thers no fus for gauges just lights. When you are playing with fuses and wires be sure to disconect negative to battery, thers always the possibility to short something out, you could temporarely pull fuses to items you dont use, this will help process of elimination, try to recharge the battery, and without having a ohmeter, or voltmeter, to check voltages to every wire, so a way to elliminate, is pull a fuse and try to start the car, if that fuse did nothing put the fuse back and try another, and maybe a power surge is kiling off fuses,... you have a big electrical problem, you will need to figure that out first before you can get the care to start. Turn the key one or two clicks, If check engine light comes on, thats cool that means your car has a message, it will tell you what is going on. An OBD2 computer code scanner, AutoZone will do for free.

Sounds like you are on the right track. The symptom of the contactor not pulling is your clue to the solution. When you turn the thermostat down lower than the room temperature and the thermostat calls for cooling, the outside unit should start immediately. There are a few exceptions to this but generally this is correct. So if you turn the system to cool and the thermostat is calling for cool then the contactor should pull in immediately. If it does not then check for 24 volts to the contactor. If you have 24 volts to the contactor then the contactor is the problem. If you do not have 24 volt power to the contactor coil then you will have to find where the break in voltage to the contactor is happening.
There are many reasons why you may not be getting 24 volts to the contactor, so check what i stated above before you go any further. Repost if this is the solution or you need further assistance.
Important tip....the yellow wire from the thermostat carries the 24 volt power from the thermostat to the contactor.

AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

5 min time delay for central system blower unit not reset whe serviced


Make sure to turn off the furnace at the breaker or disconnect switch before attempting to touch the electronics of the furnace. Also look around the furnace for an owners manual. The manual will have the process for changing the blower off delay. I have given you a pretty generic process below. If you need more specific directions I will need your model and serial number. If your furnace is new enough I may be able to find your manual in our system. Good Luck:)

In most cases a circuit board model will have a small (1/4 inch x 1/8 inch) black, plastic jumper. I think I remember that some can be red also. Anyway This jumper is plugged on to two vertical prongs coming from the board. There are other bare prongs on either side of the jumper. If you look at the writing on the board you will see different numbers ranging from 60 to 190. These numbers represent seconds in time. You can change this jumper to match the seconds that you want for the blower off delay.
