Hi

This sounds like a dry solder joint which can only be fixed with a soldering iron.... Do you have one? Which cable exactly are you wiggling....

the one to the radio. At the back.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
welll...
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I am going to go

So behind here the unit has to be dismantled and the connections for the cable resoldered...

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question

Which model do you have?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I will do it right now.

Just follow that wire you are wiggling to where it goes to the main board or onto a socket at the back... Then check all solder connections.... Dry joints can be tricky to see... Wiggle the cable and look for movement in the joints and resolder any that move..

For more specific help on your unit I will need the model number...

I'm turning and turning the two screws to the right...and they don't come out.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It reads at the back: Risk of electric shock do not open. How come if is not plugged?

It is safe as long as it is unplugged... Do not dismantle if powered

Model two.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It looks i will not be able to pull out the back.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have put back the two screws I pulled.
I can not spend more time trying to fix this radio.
Tell me how much I owe you.

Sorry but had to step out...

http://www.tivoliaudio.com/media/userguides/M2_manual_0110.pdf

Your manual is above...

It looks like the speaker is via an RCA plug.... Try pulling out and pushing back in a few times to clean... If the plug itself can be opened then do this and check the cable connections

If all good then the problem is internal and the unit has to be dismantled I'm afraid

If you could take a moment to rate my help, it is how the site rewards me for my time and costs you nothing to do..

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I feel you tried your best.
Yes, I tried pushing and pulling the plug many, many times.
Unless I break it, I have no idea how to pull out the back.Please, tell me how much I owe you.

I am not party to the charges... But it will be only what you agreed to on signing up... If you rate my ahelp positively today I am rewarded but you do not pay any more...

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I understand. Therefore, how much I owe?

It looks like $36
