    I have the same problem Where do I plug that very short wire into?

  • fozzysoma Feb 09, 2009

    My speaker quit working. I see the short wire with a round plug but no place to plug it into the monitor. The other wire plugs into the CPU. The green light on the bar will not come on so I'm thinking this other wire supplies power to the speaker bar. But where do I plug it in?

    Thanks

    I have the same problem. The Sound Bar has a short wire coming out of it and I think its meant to power the Sound Bar. I dont know where to plug that short wire in order to get power to the Sound Bar.

    Both the answers dont help me! I still need to know if i have to buy another cable for the power outlet?! Or am I just suppose to plug the shorter cable into something (even though it doesn't reach anywhere do to being so short!!)

    where do i plug this short wire to do i need to purchase a power cord to lug into this short plug coming out of the back of the moniter

    My speakers do not work. There is a short cord that I am assuming is the power cord but I don't see any place in monitor to plug it in.



    This speaker is also sold with a PA - do I need to purchase one of those or am I missing the spot onthe monitor where it plugs in.



    It is a 20" Dell monitor.

Please be more specific - Usually on the back of any computer you have 3 outlets at your sound card:

one is for "mic" (pink)
one is for "speaker" (green)
one is for "line in" (blue)

The short power cable is meant to plug into the back of a dell lcd monitor that supports it. i have the dell ultrasharp 1905fp which has the power jack in the monitor itself. or you can buy the power adapter on ebay it is rated at 12volt 1000ma. just search for as500 sound bar.

I turn on home theater receiver and it says,"check sp wires",then it shuts off


You have some speaker wires crossed or shorted.
inspect the speaker wires for shorting (cat/dog /mouse chewed em up?).
You can also disconnect the speaker wires and plug them back in one at a time to locate the shorted one , should you be unable to determine which wire is shorted.

Ive got these speakers and a real high pitch noice just started coming out of them


hello, This can due to loose connection in the stereo cable (broken wire). and also do you have earth wired to the system or the output device? This is how to check a broken wire, just simply remove the stereo jack coming from you device or PC. make sure you remove both ends, see whether the sound is gone. if you don't have a earth wired, please use a proper three pin plug. if this doesn't work, you have problem with the sound amplifier inside the sub-woofer.. you need a repair :(

M-audio av20 right speaker has no sound coming out of it at all...


To troubleshoot the problem start with the bit that is working - the left speaker.
  1. Unplug the input leads on the back of the left speaker and swap them round.
  2. If sound now comes out of right speaker and not the left the problem is with your sound source (computer, IPOD or whatever) or the connecting cable is faulty.
  3. If there is still no sound from the right speaker try turning the volume control knob up and down quickly several times - does this produce any sound from the right speaker? Sometimes the electrical contacts get dirty and this can help clean them.
  4. Turn the speakers off using the volume control knob. Disconnect the speaker wire for the right speaker from the OUTPUT on the left speaker (push the red and black tabs downwards and gently pull the wires out. Find a small 1.5 volt battery (an AA or AAA size will do nicely) and touch the bare ends of the speaker wire briefly on the battery terminals. If you hear a slight crackling sound the wire and the speaker are okay and the problem is in the amplifier, which will need repair or replacement - not a job for an amateur.
  5. If you don't get any sound from the battery test find another piece of speaker wire (any piece of 2 core cable with bare ends will do for testing) and repeat the battery test. If you get sound then replace the speaker wire. If not remove the speaker wire again and go to next step.
  6. Lay the speaker face downwards and carefully unscrew the back panel (don't do this if it is still under manufacturers warranty - take it back for repair or replacement). Lift the back panel off carefully and slowly taking care not to pull the connecting wires inside the cabinet, which will probably be quite short. You may have to settle for just rotating the back panel slightly so that you can see inside if the wires are too short to do otherwise.
  7. Use sticky tape to tightly attach the bare ends of the speaker wires to the terminals of the battery. Touch the loose ends of the speaker wires on the two metal terminals where the internal wires are joined onto the back of the big loudspeaker cone. If this produces a crackling sound it is the internal wiring in the cabinet that needs re-soldering. Otherwise the loudspeaker unit has failed and will need replacement.

Yes thats real easy. You could get a replacement plug, cut the "Old" end off, and reattach the new one, a little bit of soldering will be needed. Usually the Center pin is Plus, Positive, the Outer is Negative. Or take it to a friendly local serviceman and he'll be able to do it for you for a small. free? fee.

Short in subwoofer wire - Altec Lansing computer speakers & sub


yes, you can splice the cables and put on a new connector, goto radio shack with the old connector and im sure they will have one you can splice right onto it. ive done this many times with varios equipment "headphones speakers etc" it may take a couple of tries to get the wiring right but if its just one speaker there will most likely be just 2 wires, if you wire it up and it doesnt quite sound right, wire it the other way. speakers will work wired backwards but wont sound quit right so if it doesnt, rewire it and it should. good luck and i hope this helps!

No sound from as500 speakers


Hi there. If the sound bar is plugged into the monitor you also have to make sure that you have the cable from the bar plugged into the audio jack on the pc which is the pale green port. Hope this helps Mark

No sound


Sounds like poor wiring connections. Also, if one speaker shorts out, ALL speakers will shut off, so make sure there aren't any loose wires behind the radio or at the speakers. Sometimes wires get pinched in the door jamb and create a short as well.
