Jbl PB12 powered sub woofer

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

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.

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.

Receiver does not recognize the subwoofer

So when you power on the sub and put the rca cable into the amp do you get red light only - never goes green or does it flash ?

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.

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.
