I have an entertainment center from ello furniture(now closed) which has a non funtional control board.



Can this be fixed without having a schematic drawing of wireing plans?

    So this is like a stereo receiver? old time tape deck? can you provide a bit more info on what it is exactly, and what is wrong. Ie right speaker volume control does not work. etc.

    no, its the cabinet automatic door of an entertainment center that opens and closes to veiw the tv. The door is suppose to open by using a remote but there is the problem.It will not open or close.There is nothing to do with the tv or receiver. It Is a piece of furniture by ello that is operated by a board with a chip. Ello is out of business and I dont know anyone who bought wiring plans. It may be a lost cause but would appreciate any input someone might have.

  • You need to find a electrical contractor that has a back ground in repairs of this sort. Can you find a model number or something on the control itself? The furniture store did not make that, they purchased it from another supplier. Once you know the information on this control you should be able to Google it for your answer.

    I may be possible to "release" the door from the motor and operate the thing manually. Kind of like how you might use your electric garage door opener in a power outage. While bells and whistles can be fun to have there is simplicity and bit of beauty to a good old fashioned hinged door. If the system can not be released manually you may be able to replace the mechanism with a set of geared manual "flipper doors"

  • Can you hear the mechanism when you try to operate it? The hinges may just be stuck. If not, and you can get the board out, look for a local electronic repair store. If none are available, try your local Vo Tech school.

    I have one also. Just didn't know the name of the company. Mine is working fine but I am redoing my living room and want to sell it. Does anybody have a picture of it.

      @Yd Got to, click on Virtual Showroom, then Remote Wall Units. The R100 thru R600 units pictured are Ello wall units..just different finishes and configs. Maybe one is similar to yours. Let me know if you want to sell the motor that moves the doors, mine is dead.

    The problem isn't hinges...the large doors slide back and forth attached to a cable operated by a small motor. You can hear the relay clicking when the remote is pressed, so the motor is bad. You have to dismantle the top and front facia to get at motor. Does anyone know the brand/specs of the motor?

    @Yd from Bronx, do you want to sell the motor in your unit?
