Jbl pb12 subwoofer

My subwoofer lights flicker on the front green/red/green. Also a clicking sound. It smelled like an electrical burn of some sort. no power surge. I took out the board and their is a black burn spot on the board. Can it be repaired? Thank you, Daryl

Send your amp to Edwards Electronics - Ebay - We repair the amp - test and ship it back - please note your amp must have a screw near the on/off switch and we are not talking about the 10 that hold amp into box - see auction picture for specs.
Thanks.

SOURCE: jbl PB12 powered sub woofer problem

These subs have had many problems, all associated with the amplifier section. PB 12's with an "M" as part of the ser. no. were assembled in Mexico and these are the ones with the amp problems. JBL fixed mine and sent it back no charge, BUT it cost me nearly $100 to send it to them in the first place. I have another one that has had no problems at all. Try sending it back for repair. At best you'll get a rebuilt unit back, at worst a substantial discount from the company for a new sub.

JBL PB12 will have loud thump or pop!

First try to find the source of your problem. The easiest way would be to try your sub with a different audio source to see if the problem still occurs but is sounds more like there's a problem with the receiver.

I have a JBL PB12 it works for a few minutes then it shuts off and on and the lights on the front flash red, green, red, green..... why is this? Is it something I can fix or get fixed? I don't realy have...

Here are the service manuals, you may what to read the service bulletin section. Most common failure in the PB10/12 is the blown ClassD amp module which you cannot get it anymore. This is how I fixed my: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/JBL%20PB-12%20mod/

JBL PB10 subwoofer sounds distorted and lights on the front flash

More likely to be the Class D power amp module, but you should look through the service manual to make sure all the parts are installed correctly. My PB10 AMP module went out and you cannot get one anymore.

if your serial number starts with ha then it's probably a bad capacitor C72 . 6.8uf 100v np electrolytic. replace it with a higher voltage capacitor of the same value.
