The iFi does not power up - the internal fuse is fine.

I have a Klipsch iFi 2.1 Speaker System for iPods (Discontinued). It has been off for a few months and now it does not power up - no power on LED glowing on the back panel and the iPod dock control does not light up either. The internal 2A fuse is fine, and 115V AC is going into the fuse clips. I can't go any further in without electricueting myself.

Has anyone else experienced a dead iFi and sucessfully troubleshooted it?

Thanks - Mike

Yippey! Got it working by replacing the 25V 4700pf capacitor and 4 of the 35V 4700 pf capacitors. The original caps had bulging tops, so replaced them with true audio grade caps (Nichicon brand). I found a post on the Klipsch support website.

Sorry mmano46028, what I meant to ask is if you still have the link to the post on the Klipsch support website on this topic that you found.

On mine, the fuses would blow in just a second. since they are slow blow, that makes sense. the real problem was that the MOV1 or varistor (the little round yellow transistor next to the fuse) was blown, and was creating a short circuit.

I looked into getting a replacement for TVR14181,

but finally decided to do the best thing........

cut it out with snipes and use a surge protector that

had the same functionality. device works fine!
