Recepter Radio HD does not work
I had the same problem with mine I found that when I took it apart the main board has some type of glue on the back of the board on top of the headphone jack solder connections I removed that glue and cleaned the solder connections I found that for some reason the glue is reacting with the solder and creating a short. My radio is working again.

Boston acoustics pv-1000 won't power on
Just fixed my PV1000 that would not power on. Verified 185vdc on bulk capacitors. Measured 11vdc on U5 (UC3842) from pin 5 (gnd) to pin 7 (vcc). Then measured 0vdc from pin 5 (gnd) to pin 8 (ref). This should be 5vdc. This means that U5 is shut down for undervoltage. Turned out to be two open resistors. R94 100k 2w and R77 33k 2w. Never would have guessed that as there was no sign of heat discoloration. They are next to each other between U5 the UC3842 PWM IC and Q3. This prevented the proper startup voltage for U5. Replaced them and I'm off and running once again. Hope this helps someone.

7000684, 7000787, 7000947, 7001364
In DEC 1998 I bought a Gateway PC with a Digital Media Theater,
P/N 7000787. In the meantime the speaker in the sub-woofer got damaged (because of age).
Is it possible to disassemble the sub-woofer and replace the speaker?
Where can I buy the same or a very similar speaker for this sub-woofer?
Thanks, Andy Szekely
