I've had these speakers for a year now. Last night I had them at about 3/4 volume for over an hour, and noticed that the left speaker stopped working, and could smell burning. If i put the right speaker in either jack it works, no matter which jack i put the left speaker in, it does not. The speaker looks fine, but i imagine something inside gave out or melted? Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi Ray, if there is no power going thru than,might probably be your fuse in the subwoofer that's blown.What you have to do is remove the wire mesh from the front using a terminal flat screw driver. You will notice that there are screws around the speakers,remove them inorder to take the speakers out.Once you've done that take out the speakers gently so that you dont disconnect any wires inside.Turn the peakers over and you will see a fuse attached to the speaker.Try replacing the fuse with the asme ratings. Please refer to the image below on what the back of the peaker looks like. All the best and Good Luck.
1) Ensure your speakers are correctly plugged into the back of the PC they should be plugged into a light green port
2) ensure the volume control on the speakers are turning and you have set them to a decent level
3) Click on Start>Control Panel>sounds and audio devices and ensure the volume is up and the volume is not muted
Please try the above

You may have blown the speaker and need to replace it. Try at a low volume and then at high to notice any difference, if the popping occurs only at higher volume then it needs replacing. I hope this helps
Take no offense but after 8 years, you got your moneys worth. Unless you're good with the soldering iron and schematics, call it a great investment and update your speaker system. I imagine your computer is newer than the speakers and you can take advantage of some 5.1 surround sound! It's really great if you do any gaming,too.
Since you'll probably be getting rid of them anyway, you might want to crack it open and see if there's any loose wiring that can be fixed.
Thanks for using Fixya.com. Please rate this tip accordingly. I wish there was a better solution but I usually get 5 years out of mine so I feel jealous. :-)
No its not EMI.- I have them too and mine are little over a year old. Have noticed the faint smell of electricial burning. Checked the sub and the amp/pwr supply in there must be slowly breaking down. I cant turn my speakers up past 25 percent volume and the crackling/hum gets very bad, We should all be looking for replacement at this point.
