See what happens if you apply a temporary ground connection to the RCA input jacks ground connection while it is running. You might want to turn the volume down before you do this just in case it works.

So it is receiving power but not turning off? Sounds like the sense cable is not connected correctly. Amps have a sense cable that determine whether or not the head unit is powered on. They use this sense to power on or power off. If the sense cable is connected correctly and is getting the correct voltage, then the relay may be broken.

Hello I recently bought an Hyundai Iload and want to know if I can connect a subwoofer to the factory unit?

Yes, you can. You will need a hi/lo converter to use the high signal from one of your vehicle's speakers and convert it to a low signal for an amplifier. Your will need an accessory power source (switched with the car's ignition or accessory on) to act as a remote turn for the amplifier. You will need an amplifier kit. The kit usually comes with a power wire, ground wire, remote turn on wire(blue), RCAs to connect the converter to the amp, a fuse for the power supply at the battery and speaker wire to connect the amp to the sub. Now, all you need is the sub.

Furnace transformer/fan-relay wiring to fan-motor

Sounds like a relay problem but if your fan is running in heating and cooling and operating ok , leave it how you got it. It is possibly the low speed winding is shorted but will be fine with med and high. Sounds like a psc motor, doesn't use 3 speeds

How to & where to connect Power led + - /power sw/reset sw/HDD led

Get the user manual here: User Guide
Chapter 2 Page 17.
The plugs just fit on to little pins in the bottom corner of the board.

If you connect them and hard drive indicator light on the front of the case does not come on then you need to swap the 2 connectors around.
It's an led which has to be connected the correct way to work.
Same goes for the power led on the front of the case.

Hi Ajin, I have a LG RD-JT52 Projector which I

HI David,
Sorry for the late replay first of all. I dont have the service manual with me. So i need the service manual for assist you. One more thing is You will not be able to connect the led directly to the power supply of your projector. For that you need Buck converter to connect in between the led and power supply. Normally leds are of voltage between 1.8V to 3V range. That will be mentioned in the PDF datasheet of the LED. The tearm BUCK means to reduce the voltage From the applied voltage to the range of LED working voltage. If not the led will burn out. You didnt mentioned about is the buck converter is there or not . If its there i want to know the input voltage range of the Buck converter. If it is not there, sent the service manual i will check out and tell you what type of buck converter you need. And how to replace with the LED if it possible. My email address is [email protected]

How do i take out the factory stereo for a 2008 mazda 6, in order to install an after market amp?
Hi Lo Adapters
Hi/Low adapters are devices that installers use to convert a speaker level stereo to RCA levels so it can be hooked to an external car stereo amplifier. You can cut the speaker wires and hook the hi/lo adapter right up or you can tap onto existing speaker wires without cutting them so the speakers still play while the tap gives you a connection to the hi/lo device for adding something like a subwoofer amp to the existing speakers.... We have hi lo converters in TWO CHANNEL and FOUR CHANNEL configurations and we have them WITH and WITHOUT adjustments.. The adjustable hi/lo converters allow you to fine tune the hi/lo device to match other levels in the car or to make sure the match between your stereo and amplifier is a good match.. The adjustable line converters are the most popular.. We also have some specialty hi lo converters that have special radio plugs on them that may plug right into your factory stereo.
Now you can install an amplifier with your factory radio or install a new radio with your factory amplifier!

Vrx Bass Tube Built in amplifier

hi there mate, is the sub earthed? sometimes this might be the problem, also check that all the cables are correct in the amp, there should also be a switch on the amp to lower or increase the output, this maybe turned all the way off, the remote lead generaly is usualy the thin blue wire behind the head unit the best way to connect this to your amp remote wire is to simply go to your local halfords etc and get a little wire joining clip. then you can conect them. any other problems please ask
