Hello all,

 

I have the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX system like this (amber Klipsch THX badges and power pad incorporated into one of the smaller satellite speakers).

 

These speakers have produced fantastic quality sound, I have loved this system on my PC.

 

It has apparently just lost power (while in use), the green light on the speaker power pad is no longer illuminated. The sound literally just cut out while they were in use, no electrical smells or any weird sounds, it was as if they were simply unplugged.

 

I have always had them on 24/7/365, hooked into my PC. I've owned them for maybe 1.5 years, so not that old.

 

I've done the typically trouble shooting - unplugged/plugged back in, restarted my PC, checked the Windows 10 "manage audio devices/sound" looked to see if the speakers bar was being colorized up/down as audio is played. All to no avail. There's no static/buzzing sound when I plug them into my PC, or that static/buzzing sound when you touch your finger tip on the plug end that goes into your PC. They appear to be completely dead.

 

I plugged in an older set of speakers into my PC and those work fine, so obviously seems to be something with the Klipsch speakers.

 

Does anyone have any tips as to how to trouble shoot this on the Klipsch speakers? It seems like perhaps a fuse has blown?

 

I've opened up the subwoofer and taken some photos of the electronics (imgur.com gallery)

 

It all looks very clean inside, I don't see any signs of any connection being burned or damaged and there was no electrical burning smell when it went out.

 

Can anyone identify where the fuse is on this? I'd like to see about replacing that as the speaker system seems to be power dead. I'm obviously no electronics expert and only know enough to get myself electrocuted. I don't have any electronics troubleshooting equipment, either.
