KMC-1 will not turn on, or charge...Help!

help kmc1

Recommended Posts

I was given this kmc-1 4 days ago as a gift.  What Great gift I have been thinking up until last night.

it was working fine, then powered off due to  it being idle, When I went to turn it back on...nothing.

I then decided to plug it in.  When I plug it in , I get no lights or indication it is charging.

I always have my proper power adapter plugged into a certified power bar (my expensive cpu is also on this power bar and works fine.


So now I have a heavy black KMC-1 paper weight.  Never been taken outside  (charged ok 2 times)


Please help, is there issues with the lithium battery?....It will be a while before I get the receipt due to the gift  being from across Canada.  Bought at authorized dealer.   I have box and everything.

Help , I'm losing my mind

All I could find was a pic by copy and paste everything from klipsch right in the link. It looks like screwdriver, remove cover and take out batt and reinstall, worth a try??

really? Its been ages since Ive been on. So long that I couldn't even remember what email I originally set my user up with to reset password, so I had to create a new one.

I hope she is doing well.

....and I thought I was being rather well behaved.....for me that is.

Guys, I had the same issue with my kmc1. I called klipsch help support. They were able to help me. they send me a procedure to reset the unit. it involves removing the screws from the bottom of the unit, and disconnecting the battery. and reconnecting. that's it. Simple.

My KMC-1 is not charging fully. It was kept uncharged for around a month. Later I lost charger itself during my trip. So I brought new charger with similar rating 12V 3AMP. however it was not charged fully after 1 full night of charging. I tried to disconnect batter and reset the unit as well. Not sure battery is weak now or the charger is not producing sufficient current. Mean while I order another charger with higher power rating 12V 5Amp. Any clue guys?
