    If the subwoofer still turns on as it normally would, check to see if your receiver allows you to control your inputs/outputs (many do) check be sure that the subwoofer output didn't somehow get disabled.

    If your receiver does not have these controls, or you don't know how to get at them, try using the subwoofer with a different output to see if the problem is at the subwoofer or receiver end of things.

    have you tried switching cables from your sub to the receiver? or een your dvd player(I am assuming you have an rca coming from either to send a signal, not power, to your sub).

    your sub is powered, correct?

    does your sub have speaker level inputs? if so, maybe you can try connection some speaker wire from your set B speaker output from your receiver to see if that works. if this doesn't work, maybe it is the sub.

    the sub amp may have just went out... also some have an inline fuse on the circuit board.. I would open the sub up and check out the amp circuit board. There may just be a popped fuse.
