20 Most Recent Yamaha YST-MSW10 Computer Speakers Questions & Answers


This problem can be solved by either of the following:
1/ Modify the PCBA to prevent the auto shut off feature from working. This is done by adding a 20k ohm resistor across pins 1 & 2 on the timer IC6. This resistor will prevent the timer from turning off the amp. To do this, unplug the amp. Remove the 8 screws on the perimeter of the rear of the amp. Carefully remove the rear plate. Disconnect the speaker wires at the speaker and the front panel connection on the main board. Locate IC6 on the bottom of the main board. Solder a 20k ohm resistor (1/4W) across pins 1 & 2. Pin 1 and Pin 8 are noted on the board. Be sure to insulate the leads of the resistor to prevent contact with the board. See picture. Re-assemble in reverse order.
2/ Some 5.1 channel amps allow independent control of the volume for the subwoofer in their setup. Check your amp to see if you can raise the signal level going to the subwoofer to prevent the amp from shutting off. You can then dial back the volume of the subwoofer using the volume control on the front._436.jpg

sounds like a fuse is getting overheated and tripped or to loud, check your volume settings again.

In order for this to work, you will need an external amplifier. Your receiver is set up to use a "powered" sub. With only speaker connections on the sub, it is a "passive" sub requiring a separate amp.

Well, I solved the problem this way, after having gone into a loop of discussionwith "bunnydog." I took the cable set back to the retailer and then I trashed the subwoofer. Problem solved. I have no further need of your assistance.

ok the only issue i see causing the problem if stereo headphones work directly on the laptop is that you are running stereo to mono and maybe back again. it did occur to me as well... why are you using a Y plug.

Look at the plug.... is it metal then a little band and then the tip or is it metal a band then metal and then the tip.

shouldn't need it for speakers. you do however need one for the sound card on your computer. if the speakers were an upgrade and you know the sound card works... check that it is plugged into the proper hole at the back of the computer and that there is power to the speakers.

Remove the short that is causing the protection to engage, then power cycle, assuming it's a short circuit protection. If it's going in to thermal protection, then shut the receiver off and let it cool. If all speaker wires are disconnected and the unit is cool to the touch but still appears to be in protection mode, likely one of the output transistors has failed an will need to be diagnosed and replaced. Don't neglect to check the ESR of the electrolytic capacitors if you find a failed device internally.

I have seen several things that can cause this. One is a capacitor that holds the memory in the cpu. Another is a voltage regulator and then there are failures in the final amplifier transistors
