I dropped my right speaker on the floor, and it stopped working. The left one works fine, and the cables leading to that one all go through the right one. The right one still controls the volume and everything, it just doesn't emit any sound itself anymore, except for the barely-audible buzz of electricity. I switched the sound balance on my computer to use only the left speaker, but I was hoping I could still fix the right one myself by opening it up and realigning whatever must have been jostled out of place. Any suggestions?

Re: Right Speaker Hit the Floor
Im sorry to say so, but the fact that speaker can still monitor volume has nothing to do with its disability to produce sound. Im not a speaker wiz, but I can think of two possible reasons for what happened:
1. something has broken inside the speaker. in this case you will have to get it fixed\replaced.
2. some disconnection accured from the hit, a wire got teared or loosed. in this case, you might get lucky. open the speaker, and search for any torn wires. if you are handy you may be able to weld, replace, etc.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

sounds like an internal connection problem. open access panel and check the solder connection is not broken or loose. Be sure the metal mesh jacket is not touching the lead wire as that would cause a scratchy noise and feedback, or maybe near the internal cable causing feedback
Hello, Thanks for the detailed explanation... It seems to be there is a short or misplaced (+) (-) leads on the speaker connection you made..sometimes a tiny cable piece can make a short in between the leads and cause such problem..My recommendation is: ** take all the wires off.. ** install only B speaker leads and test it..( make sure LEFT and RIGHT (+) and (-) leads properly and individually connected to the right places on the back......it is important...This causes balancing problem.. ** if it works fine... ** than go ahead and install the A speaker leads..and test it.. if you do everything properly both A and B speakers should work fine as independently ...

HI, BASED ON THE INFO YOU GAVE I HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW..
1, switch the working right speakers cable to left output and problem left to right (from the back of receiver -not from the speakers it self..) to see if problem continues..
2.After switching them ,if it (old left new right one ) still stops left speaker cable may have short ( a tiny cable inner pieces may touching to other side ) at either at the back of receiver output or at the end ,at speaker input . make sure you control it carefully...if the problem persist please contact to me..

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...
I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).
This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.
Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)
It could be the cable connecting to the speaker, or the speaker itself. Try taking the cable that's connected to the left speaker and connecting it to the right speaker. If it works, the cable connected to your right speaker is defective, if it doesn't work - your speaker is.
my phone barely got wet at all but wont stop viberating either.everthing else works fine. i set it on a table to go on the computer and the viberating just stopped and i dont know why but right after that it just started viberating again. i got some tips from some other people that didnt work 4 me but it might work 4 u. u could try doing a master reset which just taking out the battery when the phone is on and it resets or u can try blowing on the battery in case it somehow got some dust on it.
I had this very same problem and I had my system for about 2 weeks. I have seen a lot of similar posts on this site so it seems that this problems happens a lot. For some reason my right speaker just stopped working so i came to this site for help. I looked at alot of posts and nothing fixed the problem. when i switched the right speaker to the left input it started to work so I knew the speakers were fine. So i finally decided to unplug everything and restart my laptop. Once my laptop rebooted I plugged the sub back into the wall after about a minute of it being not plugged in. Then I plugged all the the wires and volume control back into the sub and turned the switch back on. Make sure the volume control is down when you plug everything back in. Then plug the wire into the device, which in my case was a laptop, and start to play some tunes. Right away everything was working perfectly fine again and no problems ever since...for me atleast.
