A few months after I bought the BC21 and BC22, the latter's blue light failed. I went to replace the light but the screws require a special tool to open it. Now the 22 won't even play. I must have blown a fuse but I can't tell. I can't open it because of the weird screws.
Why not put Phillips screws or regular screws on your units? I can't afford to send it back to you to fix. Why do you do these things?
Punker X has explained the light and the screws. Regarding the BC22, if it is both channel stop working, it may be the main fuse on the back of the unit. If it is blown, it may be caused by the internal MOV shorted the input to protect from a surge.
I've owned my BC21.1 and BC22 (now, monoblocks) for many years - something like 6 or 7 years, I think. No problems with the lights, or the operation of either unit, during that entire time. I don't recall any of the other forum posts reporting such issues either.
Jymn, I'm sorry to hear you are having a few issues. Punker X and Gilbert have already replied, and I hope you are able to resolve your issues quickly! Good luck.
ps - get yourself a set of hex wrenches. Not only useful for BC gear, but for bicycle repair and sundry other things around the home... _________________ http://theaudiogardensf.blogspot.com/
My apologies to Blue Circle and Don Leman. I was celebrating too much last night and wrote this stupid post. I love my BC21 and Hat Peed Thingee. They sound great and work flawlessly. I am more frustrated with myself for being too lazy to go to the hardware store and get the correct screwdriver to replace the light and blown fuse in my 22. I will do that Monday.
Again, my apologies for this rude and misplaced post.
Please delete this thread as it does not reflect my true feelings about Blue Circle.
