Question about JBL CREATUREIIWHITE Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Static discharge Ouch, i killed it. For a while in the winter when i would sit down i'd have so much static built up that as soon as i touch my desk i hear a clicking as my charge goes... somewhere. in the interest of 'protecting' my electronics from discharge, i grounded myself on the volume controls of the speakers... so now the volume controls are effectively fried. i opened up the offending speaker but its not like i know what to do next. all of the components are surface mounted except for two big capacitors and the diode on the bottom. there are some SMT diodes, capacitors, resistors, and an IC chip. i haven't looked closely enough yet to find the path from the controls to the ground, but i've fried something. anyone have an idea what might've gone? the diodes... the resistors... the capacitors? i hope not the chip... is there any physical sign i should be able to see what's broken or can anyone tell me how to test with a multimeter to find what's fried? the components are replaceable right?

Hello Gil
WEll defenetely, you fried your spks. so you have some options here.
1) Go to warranty (if apply) and use it.
2) get the spks. to repair shop to change board. ($$$)
3) buy new pair of speakers. and keep away from statics places. use wood tables instead of metalics.
good luck

Hi, Using this Cuisinart Conical grinder is awful. The static makes the coffee stick to everything and makes it difficult when you are using this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing I've found that will work for this problem, which I certainly agree creates a mess, is to let the grinds sit for just a few minutes before opening the receiving cup. Especially in winter, this will give the static charge a chance to dissipate. A few minutes won't kill your coffee's taste, but it sure will lessen your cleanup!

JVC HD-56G886 tuner stopped working

My (unfortunate) guess would be the Tuner received a static discharge when you were changing the antennas... this time of the year is bad for static - if you're in a "Winter" climate.

Receivers have a very sensitive FET or MMIC amplifier right inside from the antenna connection to make it better for picking up distant stations.

However, this same "sensitive" amplifier is also prone to being destroyed by even a small static discharge... especially if the tuner had its power turned ON.

Sad to say, it's likely toasted... :-(
(I hope I'm wrong... but you have already tried all other possible solutions)

Electric shocks when sat on scooter and someone touches you

This is probably due to "static" electricity discharging from the rider to earth via the person who touched you. Static is often caused by the clothes you wear (especially man made fabrics like nylon). Try fitting a discharge strip ( like you see on the back of cars) to the scooter or change the type of chothing you wear (wool or cotton does not cause static to build up)

Does air bag deploy if you touch the module?

first of all. anytime you work with the air bag system you should allways disconnect the negative side of the battery and allow the car to sit for about fifteen min to ensure there is no residual charge in the system. you also have to be aware that a static discharge from a person could set it off. that being said if he didnt take he above precautions he should not have been working on it and owes you an airbag.

How ot install hard disk?

1. VITAL: unplug computer.
2 EQUALLY VITAL: wait for 1 full minute while board discharges.
3 open side of case.
4. VITAL ALSO: touch your hand to internal metal part of case to discharge static from your body
4 unplug old hard disk, then remove mounting screws from it.
5 remove old hard drive.
6 before handling new hard drive touch metal inside case again. (if you have a static band use it otherwise keep touching the metal case frequently to prevent static from "zapping" your computer parts.)
reverse this order to install new one. it will be recognized by computer on its own.

Acer aspire laptop touch-pad response problem ??!! weird.

Of what material is the arm of the settee made? I am guessing some material with significant static electricity discharge (ESD) potential that is interfering with the touchpad which depends on the detection of your fingertip by means of detection of the static discharge from the tip of your finger, especially if the material is plastic or certain fabrics.

Let me know if it works on a desktop made of something closer to wood.

HP dv4000 Static discharge shuts down my laptop

Honestly, it sounds as if the laptop has some sort of power issues as it shouldn't be creating static. If you are going to take it apart yourself, look for damage to all connectors, especially around the power connection as damage here could lead to greater problems down the road. Otherwise, I would recommend taking it to an Authorized HP Repair center.

Can I take it out?

Too prevent static discharge while working on a PC or electronic devices, either use an anti static wrist strap available from any computer or elecronics outlet store or make sure one hand is holding the metal PC casing whilst the other is removing the PCI device. You can also purchase an anti static mat to put the PC on while working on it but these can be expensive. The rule of thumb is to make sure the PC is earthed the entire time you are touching the internal workings, you can also safely work with PCI card install & removal procedure if the PC has been disconnected from its power source for more than four hours, PCI cards generally discharge when the PC is turned off, static discharge will only cause problems with the motherboard and processor if not earthed correctly or physically before removal or installation.
