Klipsch Promedia 2.1's dead

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
My speakers have died and I don't know what to do. I have the Klipsch Promedia 2.1's that I got off another member here a while ago. They have recently stopped working and the LED on the satellite will not light up. Does anyone know what could be wrong or how to fix it?

i got mine off ebay open box for about $40 shipped. i was disappointed that it didnt have an on off switch. so what i did is put all my lcd's and tv and speakers on a seperate power strip and turn it off when i'm out of the room.
does yours have an on-off switch? my friend has the same speakers but his have a switch. mine doesnt have one even at the back of the sub (which would still be pointless).

so may be open it up and see whether the fuse burned out.

There's a very good chance one of the fuses has blown in it. Seems to be a problem with these speakers, along with the DIN plug breaking.

I can't remember what type you need to replace them with though, should be on klipsch's site.

I can't find a fuse anywhere in the stinking thing! I'm not very good with electronics but I had a friend who is look at it and he couldn't find one either. Maybe we are just both dumb rolleyes.gif

I don't have an on/off switch and I leave them on all the time... Maybe that wasn't a good idea but I mean cmon

The fuse is on the back of the sub, right next to the power switch . Mine have this anyway and they're an older model, like ten years old. It looks like a little black button witha slot. Hope thats it. According to the quick research I did this is what you need.

I don't have a power switch on mine, from what I've gathered they are a newer model.

It might have an internal fuse.

Yes it does, that's what sucks with the newer models.

Sounds just like what everyone is saying, the fuse. There is an rare chance they overheated and died (like 1%).

I have a multi cord that I have my whole desktop area connected to, I just unplug it when I leave or go to sleep. That they my sub/other things aren't on.

Is there way to fix this or will I have to purchase another sub?
