A guy who lives nearby brought his speaker to my shop and wanted to get his speaker fixed. He said the speaker powers on but there is no sound coming out.

Four screws off and I was able to see the inside of this speaker.

Lots of wires inside so taking a photo of them is not a bad idea to keep in mind what wire goes where.

I spotted where the speaker cables go to and right away I saw the fault.

I am sure you have spotted already the hole on that tiny amp IC with the part number of B5K18A.

I do not have this IC available in my shop but I found the equivalent part for it which was HT8693SP and that I have plenty of in my shop.

I applied low melt solder to the pins of the IC and carefully I applied some heat to it and it was off in no time.

I soldered the replacement part there and put everything back together (with the help of the photo).

The sound was restored in this active speaker and two things left to do, put the screws back and call the customer for pick up.

Mission Accomplished.

    Thanks for the datasheet and the interesting repair! That you already found the right equivalent DIL8 chip plenty ready in your store is a small miracle. You must have a lot of parts in stock. Searching for this BK5K18 10 Watt audio amplifier indeed gives the HT8693 as equivalent- click here:
    Never new this chip existed. Often the DIL8 stereo types like the TDA 7050 or the TDA2822 are only 1 Watt. And the famous LM386 mono amplifier is also just 125 mW in output power.

    It is sad that there are no longer many repair shops around; must be hard to make a living from such work.

      Anwar: yes not many repair shops left due to the fact they do not want to advance in their repair field. usually I have a lot of repair jobs in the shop and my income is good. have a good day

    waleed,
    Arranging this types of parts is also a big challenge.I left so many repair jobs because of unavailability of spares and if available it was not economical as compare to price of the equipment.
