View Full Version : Squuezebox2 - IR not working; part number?

I've got a bunch of SB2's scattered around the house. On one of them the IR has suddenly stopped working. Tried different remotes to be sure its not the remote, but it is definitely the IR receiver. Doesn't work even when not connected (IE. Hold down power to restart, up/down thru menus etc.)

I'm guessing the IR receiver has given up so want to try replacing it but dunno the part number. Sean Adams said a while back the schematics had never been released publicly. However, after many years since the SB2s stopped being made could they be released now - so that as components do die we can fix them?

Or, does anyone know the IR receiver part numbers?

Might all go wrong, but gonna try a HX1838 - no better reason than it _looks_ the same :-) :eek:

Did you try swapping power supplies with one of your fully functional units?

Hi tc, yes. Seems odd that the IR receiver should just die so tried all combinations of stuff. All ok, except this IR wont receive. I'll let all know if the IR swap works (or its the wrong one and blows the unit up lol :-)).

Thanks Thomas. Not really got an issue sourcing the IRD, just not sure what one is used by the Squeezebox2. I'm going by 'look' and keeping fingers crossed (while waiting for it to be delivered) :-)
