I have done as suggested and with one unplugged the other still does not work, both ways round. The fault could therefore be somewhere else or both speakers could be faulty. Replacing both speakers will be too costly and might not solve the problem anyway.
Has anyone got any experience of using the headphone socket? Surely someone else has had a go at this before?
Plugging in the headphones suppresses the signal to the internal speaker as it is meant to. However, I would like to use the internal subwoofer and external speakers at the same time.
I have had a quick look at this and it seems less than obvious what is going on. It's not a simple switch over as I had hoped for. It looks like one of the audio outputs is fed back to the board that then channels the audio to the internal speakers. I will get the 'scope on it to see what's on each connector.
I will also try taking the audio signals straight from the board, rather than from the headphone socket itself, but I suspect that they might not be there until the headphone plug is plugged in. I probably need to trick the Radio into thinking that the socket is not plugged in. I'll post any news as I get it!
There must be a work around here somehow.
Slow down cowboy, we'll get it; let try to fix it correctly before we go rigging up some custom work-a-round.
I have more experience with the headphone jack and the satellites then you would think. I have worked on these unit for over three years.
Unplug the middle one and see if the satellites work.
One of the amps is invoking the "mute" function and this why you are seeing (or not hearing (or hearing)) what you are?
So with the power off, unplug all three plugs on the inside (note where they go (mark with a marker)) then plug one in and power up the unit; then see what you get. Try this for all three plugs, plugged in ONE AT A TIME (unplug the unit from the wall each time you plug or unplug and make sure your plug the plug back in corectly (not off my one pin)).
Then post what you find. If you find that two work on their own, then try those two together. A think I have only seen one unit loose more then one amp.
So you have the left satellite amp (in the left satellite enclosure), the right satellite amp (in the right satellite enclosure) and one bass amp (in the rear enclosure).
I still say you have one bad one that is invoking the mute and from what you post, I am going to bet it's the middle one which is the bass one.
