Smoke coming out of subs
If smoke has come out of the subwoofer, the speaker itself, that means the voice coils have been heated excessively and they are damaged or in this case, I'd say completely blown. Voice coils blow because they've been driven too hard, too much power, too much distortion for too long.
If you can get access to the front of the subwoofer speakers, gently put even pressure with your fingers near the middle of the cone, just around the edge of the centre dust cap and push gently and slightly inwards. If you hear or feel a "scratchy" type sound or feel, or if they dont move in freely, they are blown. And if that's the case, your amp could be damaged as well.
Most modern car amps have circuit protection and will shut down when they detect a load greater than they are used to so the amp MAY be ok. One way to test the amp is to hook another speaker to it, any speaker as a test is ok, and see if sound comes out. Make sure all power is off when connecting and disconnecting speakers!
Jensen vm0312 is on, but tray will not flip up
It sounds like there may be an issue with the mechanical components of the DVD player, specifically with the tray. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try:
- Check to see if the emergency eject feature is working. There should be a small hole on the front of the DVD player, and you can use a paperclip or a similarly sized object to push the button inside. This should manually eject the tray.
- Make sure that the DVD player is receiving power. Double-check all of the connections and fuses.
- Reset the DVD player by disconnecting the power for a few minutes, then reconnecting it and trying again.
- If none of the above steps work, it may be necessary to take the DVD player apart and check the mechanical components for damage or wear. However, this is not recommended unless you have experience with electronics repair.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, you may need to seek the assistance of a professional electronics repair technician.
