Hi everyone,I have the infinity ps210 sub and for the last week it just shuts down with a thump and goes into standby mode while I am watching tv then it goes back on in a few minutes and continues to do it every 45 min to an hour. the sub is only a year and a half old and now i started doing research on this problem and I think it might be a bad capacitor, or does anyone have any advice as to why this is happening? is it worth having it fixed or am I going to continue to have this problem? also what would be a good match if I was to purchase a new sub I have the onkyo 607 receiver with infinity primus 162's L&R and surrounds and the primus 350 center.do I have to stay with an infinity sub or can i go with a different make? Thanks all for the help and advice.

You can definitely have a different sub than speakers. In fact I recommend a sub from an internet direct subwoofer company. You get more bang for your buck that way.


But first see if your P210 is under warranty. It should be.

DId you ever fix your sub? Mine also doesn't work. How could I check for warranty? Thanks!

You need to have a receipt because that is the only way that it will be repaired under warranty. In other words, dated proof of purchase.

Exactly, it ended up being a capacitor. I had it fixed and it worked fine but now im using a HSU sub,

Did you repair it yourself or send it in for warranty?


How do you test the capacitors? I picked this one up, already not working and the previous owner said he tried to change the "caps" and it still doesn't work so I'm not sure where to start..


Thanks,

Ryan

You need a service manual, volt/ohm meter, and suitable soldering equipment. If you do sufficient Google searches, you may find a site where you can download the service manual for $15-$25.


If you take the subwoofer to a repair location, they will charge $200-$400+ (because of the labor involved in locating the problems) and usually only guarantee their repairs for 30-90 days. If you send to a remote location for repairs, you also pay to-and-from shipping.


In the under $300 range, individuals in this forum like the BIC PL-200.
