LG F-185 AD (AKA LG FFH-185-AD) - No sound when CDs are played
A system that has been working fine since it was bought in 2004 had now developed a problem with "no sound when playing CDs".
Sound is fine when Radio is used.
Any help would be appreciated.
p.s Where can I get hold of a user manual for this unit as my 80 year old in-laws have misplaced their original copy. A downloadable PDF version will be great!!
Thanks in advance

Sorry, but you have three differant model numbers on this page. Just look up LG downloads then click on support or manuals, then enter the model Number EXACTLY as it appers on the rear of the unit, and you will be able to get a manual there.

I have the same problem on an Asus EEE Pc... Is your Toshiba running Windows 7? This is maybe the reason, because external drive is not compatible with this OS. That's what I heard from LG...
The drive works perfect on my Asus laptop with XP!
Please keep me informed if you solve this problem.
are you going through a cable box ? if so, then just connect the video out cable from the surround system to the video in on the side of the LG. Then connect the left & right audio in cables into the cable box coming out of the sound system, this will work, I just set mine up this way, any other issues let me know.If you are not using a cable box then simple connect out of the sound system the left & right audio out cables AND the video cable into the side of the LG ( the left side is where these in puts are).
First make sure that the speaker wires haven't fallen out of the wonderful spring clip connections the factorys use. If they are hooked up properly and you have a headphone jack plug in a set of headphones and check for sound. If you have sound the problem is in the power amp. If not it could be in the preamp or power amp. At this point if sound is absent and you can solder, open the unit and check the solder joints for bad connections and resolder anythhing which looks questionable. These days the majority of problems are related to cold solder joints. If the unit still is not working you will need an O Scope to trace the signal. If this is beyond your capabilities any repair shop should be able to find the problem.
