Squeezebox Boom Power Problems

Posted by juni on June 2, 2019

Sometimes problems can be fixed by the simplest solutions - this is the case with a recent problem I had with my Boom.

I found that the power feed to the Boom was intermittent and after a bit of fiddling it turned out that the problem was the barrel connector that plugged into the Boom. When I withdrew it a small amount the power stayed on but when I pushed it home fully the power dropped out. A simple fix occured to me - slip a small rubber 'O' ring over the business end of the barrel to stop the barrel being fully inserted.

I haven't opened up the Boom to establish what is actually causing the fault but as this simple fix works and life is short, this task is near the foot of my 'To Do' list.
