Unhappy Monsoon Planar Media 14 Audio System

Hi everyone/anyone, I am new here and glad to have found a possible source for help. My speakers and the sub-woofer/control module all work fine! It says 2002 on the bottom so I guess I've had them since at least then. I loved them while they worked well, but when the small control pod began to malfunction I had to disconnect them. This would have been about two to three years after I got them. What happened was that the bass control on the pod began to cut sound off altogether when I tried adjusting. It also introduced a lot of noise when turned at all. Sound would cut out altogether, would get louder or softer and have a lot of static too. On occasions when I was able to finally get things adjusted to where they seemed to be just right, volume level would soon self adjust up or down or off, accompanied by static. I had to remove the speakers. Of course, by this time they were no longer being made/sold and I could fine no help anywhere. Searched the web on a whim recently and found this site and am hoping someone can help me get them up and running right again. I have no electrical skills, although I can wield a soldering iron as a result of working in stained glass for a few years. I have looked inside the pod and have no idea what to do. I have shot up the switches inside with Micro Care contact cleaner a couple of times but to no avail. I'd be glad to include some pics if they would be helpful. Sorry this is so long, but I didn't want to forget anything. Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions. Dunolde

I had Monsoon MM700 and the amp in sub was giving me problems like yours. The stereo 1/8" input connector - audio out from PC - on the sub amp was my problem. I removed the sub amp and re-soldered the 1/8" connector connections. Worked fine afterwards...

When you jiggle the audio in connector on sub does it help or cut out?
All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us? Life of Brian
