    The clue is in the thread index (lol). The speakers are Bose Companion 3, 2.1 speakers. Sound source doesn't matter as it does it from any input.

    Many Thanks for your help...

General situation here, YOu have to give more details, on your sound card, sound speakers brand, if mono, or 5.1 please, for me to help you.
but a quick response, be, may be a chip on the speakers, time to change it, or some speakers have bad resistant chip that sometimes get hot, and burn, have a look or change to other speaker and test.

    Hi again

    Well, it can be (depending) on the PC or Laptop, if there is enough power (output) for the BOSE to handle. Perhaps need to play with the 2.1 setting on multimedia settings, and see if sound go out. Or , put in another PC, (out connector) and play a CD, it is suppose to bring sound and stay, some speakers when you swich off the systems, give some sounds, but may be too a bad connection.

Tail lights and dash lights are out

Hi Jeffrey,

Most likely to be the lighting control logic board, inside the pod on the left of the steering wheel.
The board lives in that black housing through which the headlight switch is also mounted and has the fog light switches on the board also so that they poke out of the top when the board it in place.
To access the board take out the one Phillips screw directly underneath that left side pod and the bottom panel comes off, the board then un-clips (2 spring plastic clips at the far end near the dash clocks, one near to you, ease them back and you will feel the board come loose ) , and drops out, pull off the light switch knob and undo the nut around the switch to allow you to gently ease the switch shaft back through it's hole and remove it with the board, unplug and replace the complete board unit and the main light switch which is attached to this board by its wires, put the switch back in and nut back on that first, then ease the board back into its housing until the clips click, replace the bottom pod cover with the screw and you are done, takes about 15 minutes tops.

Hope this helps
any further questions post them here and I will see them

Logitech Z5500 5.1 speaker system Hi, Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this problem? there is no sound coming from the subwoofer or the speakers, but when I connect my mp3 player to the pod...

Try pulling the power from the unit for a few minutes, the reconnect. Make sure you've got the surround settings correct. If that doesn't do it, you've likely popped the amp or the amp's power supply in the sub box.

Audio control pod

I have a similar issue too, but my problem is that the sub has green light, and my control pod has an 'off' light, but it won't turn on :(

Amp problems

The head unit probably has 2 control wires. One has 12v when the signal source is the tuner. When you switch to the other sources, the antenna is not needed so the output to that wire is switched off (so the power antenna will go down).

Look for a wire marked amp control or something similar. It will have 12v output any time the head unit is on. Use that one to control your amplifiers.

Error 6A00

Good Luck
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Control pod

Double check the connections, if the connection for the control pod is good then something is wrong inside. I would say most likely thing would be a problem on the power supply inside the subwoofer box.

Dim Light on Control Pod...very low volume output

I just fixed this exact problem. There is only 1-2 volts feeding the preamp IC's pin 4 JRC 2059. Positive side of C313 should be 12v(B+ to IC's) found shorted transistor just above C313. Collector goes to V+ 15v from power supply, Emitter feeds the preamp IC's. I used a 2sc3904 (NTE123Ap) unit back up and running
