Funai Computer Speaker Intermittent No Power Repaired

By on November 7, 2014

Customer brought his Funai Speakers for repair with the complaint of intermittent no power. First I have checked the power adapter and it was producing 19 VDC and working fine. I had to open up the speaker for further troubleshooting.

Once the cover was removed I found one of the variable resistors (potentiometer) was broken.

The customer confessed that he accidentally pressed on the variable resistor and causing it to loose and drop out.

After visual inspection on the loosen parts, I found there was nothing wrong with the variable resistor and I reassembled it.

After installing back the variable resistor I removed the “On / Off “switch and cleaned it with Contact Cleaner and resoldered the joints.


I then powered it up and no longer have intermittent power problem and the sound was good too after attaching it to the computer.

    Hi Jestine,

    good and easy repair.
    I have a suggestion.
    I spray a little drops of "Red Philips Contact cleaner" when i service
    pots or any variable resistor.
    This spay has little oil in its formula to help pots rotate smoother.
    This is a sample link ""
    But many times i have read that this method maybe attract dust.
    Is this true?
    Thanks a lot.

      is that like Deoxit? yes, oil (oleaic acid-based)cleaners can attract dust and cause more problems, some techs swear by it, some, myself included, swear at it, really not liking that stuff any more, or use it VERY sparingly...

    hard to believe that the back end cup on a pot just fell off, those things are tough to remove, smells like the customer was monkeying around with that pot, or it was improperly assembled when the speaker was made to begin with...

    Hi Panchal, nice repair Job...Sometimes use WD40 first and then spray it out with contact cleaner and that works for me.
