    Hi can someone please explain why my AIWA would just for no reason make loud popping sounds when switched off its on at the plug but off at the switch . Its a Pro-logic system but as said before its off when these loud popping noises come through the speakers. Please can someone explain?
    Thank you

    If you mean it's plugged in, but you're pushing the on/off button on the amp, this isn't uncommon (apparently it can be something to do with the capacitors discharging). How loud is the popping?

    Try turning the volume knob down to zero b4 turning it off - see if that helps...

    Thanks jon It is plugged in and turned on but turned off at the power standby button on the system and the popping noise can be really loud at times. I will try turning the volume down b4 turning off. Thanks

    well tried you suggestion but it did not work and to cap things the system has no volume now ( nothing to do with you jon ) seems as my system has died as the some of the button don't respond at all . The sad thing is this system had very little use and and is sitting like new it is about 5 years old
    Is it worth getting fixed?

    UPDATE : the system made aloud bang and the system is now back to normal obviously there is a fault in the sound and this is making the loud popping sounds as well as no volume at different times will need to get it checked out.

    Yeah, clearly something ain't working right. Depending how loud the bangs are, you might want to hold off on using it - there is an off-chance a bang could blow a speaker if it's v loud :(

    As to whether it's worth repairing, guess it depends on how much you like the system and how much it's worth (and if you're wanting to upgrade...) If you're happy with what you've got, it *sounds* like it could just be a loose connection or socket somewhere - see if you can get a local hifi/electrical store to give you a reasonable quote on fixing it.
