Hey ya
I have this subwoofer that i bought of my friend he did warn me that it was broken a long time ago but i decided to take it , it worked fine for the first day sound coming our real bassy too but when i tried to move it to another room it didnt want to work anymore , i figured it just died and kept it next to my home theater for asthetic.

fast fowrad to 2 years i deciced to sell it and plugged it back in to my amp and behold it worked again , but same problem when i pull out the audio in cable sub just doesnt want to respond
the light is on , there seems to be no internal issue either and when it powers on i can hear the buzzing sound the amp makes,
im not a audio expert but i would like this sub to work
any ideas whats going on thanks

Subwoofer MODEL ANSW62BG

Check the input cable and wiggle it slightly. If there's change in audio, try clean the connectors.

I had a subwoofer repaired by an electronic repair shop. The led was lit but hardly any bass. They replaced a component on the pcb board. It might've been a blown capacitor. Could be the same deal with yours and possibly a flakey part causing intermittent problems.
