Creative Home Theater Woofer Not Working
Previously repaired unit come back for woofer not working problem.
As per customer’s statement two satellite speakers are working but BASS is not produced so I urged him to send only power adaptor & woofer box only. As I have the smiler speakers for testing with me.
So on arrival I inspected the woofer; Bluetooth /FM kit is working but no bass effect on the speaker. I connected my speakers; sound from the speakers are loud & clear…. On attaching the speakers cable to the socket. I realized on little pressure on those socket woofer produces bass momently and leaves.
Creative always uses “AC Adaptors” in his home theater series.
I opened the Unit for further inspection….
Re touched some solders. while inspecting the PCB using Magnifying glass I observed BASS control POT Trace connections are ripped off form the PCB.
Now I understood why little pressure on the satellite speaker socket the bass effect is coming to the normal.
So here solution is to putt jumper wires on both the Points….
After the jumper process i powered ON the woofer and tested by playing some songs now it produces perfect Bass effect.
Reassembled the unit & it is ready for pickup.
