This particular unit has issues with bad solder connections on the main audio board which come loose because the woofer speaker vibrates them loose. I've repaired unit myself with a soldering iron.

What it mean if the Wii will not go pass the health safety scream


Was you trying to mod your wii? If so you may have soft bricked your wii. You will have to reflash the firmware on the system to fix. If not try these.

1. Hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the system is on.
2. Hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the system is off
3. Unplug every thing and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
4. Take out the SD card and turn the system on.

Turn off the sleep mode. For some reasons the geniuses ship it with a sleep setting already on. Hold the sleep button til it shows the time then press the sleep button several times until it displays 00. good luck!

My ilive speakers IT188b won't play any sound. I'd like to resolder the main audio board, but where is it?!? I got to the insides and pretty much pressed all the connections and they seem in place....


You just want to jump in start soldering without knowing what the cause is???

Do you even KNOW the speaker is the reason? Sources and cables can be the reason.

As always, you should refer to the manual FIRST before coming here.That is where WE will usually start.

For example, there is no troubleshooting section but there is a website mentioned on the last page: www.ilive.net

...which leads to SUPPORT (and contact information, should this not help) which leads to

http://www.ilive.net/store/p/43-2-1-Channel-Bar-Speaker-with-Dock-for-iPod-.aspx

which leads to downloadable manuals

http://www.ilive.net/owners_manual/IT188B-IB.pdf

an instructional insert for changing the clock between 12/24 hr time and FAQs, which discuss your symptom.

"Why can I not hear any audio from my iLive docking system?

When an auxiliary line-in cord is inserted into the LINE-IN jack (on the right side of your IT188B) you will not be able to hear what is connected to IN2 (on the back of your IT188B). Both of these input share the same input function of AV2. To play audio from either of these inputs, press the FUNCTION button until AV2 appears on your LCD screen. If both inputs have connections with audio players, the LINE-IN jack will have precedence over the IN2 jack. Make sure to detach the cable connected to LINE-IN before connecting a device to IN2. You will need an auxiliary line-in cable (3.5 mm mini to stereo RCA cable) to connect an iPod shuffle to this system. Also, there is a Volume Limit option in the Settings menu of your iPod. Make sure that this maximum volume is set to a range that will be audible. Be careful when adjusting your volume level. Higher decibel levels at close range may put you at risk for hearing damage."

My ilive speaker bar IT188B will not play through my television...what do I do?


Make sure that your audio in on Ilive unit is going to your tv's audio out. Your tv may have a setup to able the audio out. Refer to your tv's owner's manual. I have to do this on my tv to my Ilve unit.

ILive IT188B - Not a problem, but a question as I have not purchased the unit yet. I am looking to enhance the sound from my Digital TV. The chances of ever using an IPod are slim. My question; can it be...


Yes, absolutely. It has inputs from which you can connect your TV. Its a nice box for the price. The remote SUCKS! Terrible key placement. However, you should be able to program the remote into another universal remote. Although, I have not figured out how to do that yet as ilive does NOT posts discrete IR codes or hex codes for the more advanced programmers.
