Access screws on headphones are sometimes under the ear padding, or maybe on the opposite side under a sticker or label. Sometimes the wire will have come loose from the internal speaker, or it could be the external cable has been abused enough that the copper strands inside have separated.

This sounds like an internal amplifier problem. Did you smell anything burn? Try turning it off completely and plugging it to a different outlet.

If all else fails, have it checked by an electronics technician...

Garmin nuvi 1350 got wet

Liquid and electronics don't mix. You can cause more damage leaving the power applied to the unit when it is wet. Water is conductive due to the metals found in water. This can short out components and damage them.

Electronics that get wet need to be taken apart right away and washed in a 90% alcohol bath and blown dry with compressed air. The alcohol displaces the water and will dry on its own. The compressed air helps speed up the drying process and blow out any residue in hard to reach places or under parts.

If the unit is allowed to dry without being cleaned, a white residue will form around components and the residue can short out connections.

There are some parts that can't be recovered due to getting wet, like LCD displays, batteries and speakers.

I would suggest taking the unit to a professional to have it looked over. There are some places that won't work on water damaged electronics because even if you can revive them, there is no guarantee they won't die tomorrow and many places will not offer a warranty on water damaged unit.

How to take apart

The port was broken on mine also. I looked online and found no help so I decided tear it apart since it was broken anyway. There are 6 phillips head screws located under the speaker cover. The black mesh material is glued down so you have to pry it up and then peel. The backing tore on mine so it will be a challenge to actually remove it without damaging it. Once it is off, you can remove the 6 screws and it will open right up. The charger port is located inside a small black box that is held down by 2 screws. Once I got to the little charging port, I found that it had become separated from the circuit board and couldn't be put back on. Not unless you know how to solder or do circuitry. I figure it isn't repairable.

I have a split a/c hitachi model number RAS-3HQE5 it stopped working the other evening, i have power to the outdoor unit when i removed the cover i found a mouse shorting across the power supply...

The shorrting could have damaged the control board and so the board commands must be checked. The output to the outdoor unit comes from the processor in the indoor unit and so checking the working of the processor is important. It is possible that the short could have damaged the circuit and so a trace is need on the tracks that was shorting.
Tip: Check the LT circuit from the mains as the high voltage could have flown into to damage the circuit.

first check that the cabling going to the right speaker is not damaged then see if the plug for the speakers is damaged. if both are fine the speaker can be dissembled by removing the screws in the back or bottom of the unit and then popping them apart

Unit would shut down just a few seconds after startup. Checked all 5 speakers and all had good impedance. Main speaker left channel must be blown 'cause all it does is hiss. How to fix?

Your unit is likely shutting down because you have a short on one or more speaker outputs. This is a safe mode on short circuit to protect the unit.

The hiss is an indicator of the short (it has been shorted so long that one transistor set is probably bad. Look for a single strand of wire crossing from red to black speaker output on the receiver or at the speaker input on the speaker. If not there - you may have touched speaker wires together at one time - especially when volume was turned up.

Most likely you have blown the power transistor to that channel (left). You will have to open up the unit and look for the large transistors mounted to a heat sink (large aluminum frame). There should be two transistors for each channel (12 total for six channels) in an AB (push/pull) configuration.

You will have to measure the output (AC voltage) of each pair - right wire is usually the emitter. You can hold the neg (black) lead on the volt meter to the black speaker terminal when checking each. If you are lucky - there will be white lettering to indicate which speaker each pair of transistors is for.

Simply desolder the bad ones and replace with identical type ( or should have most transistors you will need - radio shack will not have the correct transistors). If you get no AC or only low AC or AC output voltage does not track with volume knob turn, then you have a bad set of transistors on that channel. Compare to other channels.

Be EXTREMELY careful when you open the unit. Static electricity can damage components. Touching something near the AC main (wall power) kinput, the filter network for AC main power, transformer, rectifier will damage you. If you are uncomfortable, you can take your time and learn how to do this (Books, videos, learn from a friend). Do not do this without knowing about electricity and where the hot spots are in your unit. You will be much better off spending $300 - $500 on a new unit rather than risking your life/health to fix this unit.

Good luck and drop a note on this site to let me know what you do.

Taking apart harman/kardon subwoofer

turn the sub upsidedown, carefully remove the clear rubber feet (these are a dome fitted over a mushroom top), using the toothed gripper cutout of a pair of pliers (when closed it is the eye shaped opening visible on one side), grip the mushroom firmly but not so hard as to crush the mushroom and gently ease clockwise and anticlockwise (the mushroom is at one end of a clear plug blocking access to the four screws that hold the two parts together.
Be carefull to use the correct size screwdriver so as not to damage the screw heads as they are tight.
On reassembly, you may need to use glue to replace the rubber feet if the mushroom becames damages during removal.
