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.

Could be an internal effected by disconnecting when the sound bar when the power was still on. Always remove or connect speakers or other electronic devices at power-down (not active) as transient current can damage sensitive electronics. Check you wires, cables, and in/out ports for defects or dirty posts, etc. Perhaps the dog or cat chewed on the lines....never know.
Pretty much the same happened to me. There are two wires coming from the wired remote control. One has a green plug which plugs into your sound system (computer sound) and the other connects to the Sub Woofer assembly. Feel this later cable for a harden section. It will probably be closer to the Subwoofer, but may be anywhere along it. This cable will have been cooked by overheating (Playing sound at full volume for over long periods of time.) . You will feel probably a 6" to1' section that is a tad stiffer and the plastic will crumble. You will need to cut a few inches into the normal cable and remove the bad section. Then strip and tin, the cables and connect them individually . Connect (tin, solder and seal them individually: ground to ground, white to white, red to red, blue to blue, green to green, purple to purple). Depending on the electrical tape you use- there will be a thick bulge in the cord, but it should work fine... or you can connect the severed cable to the original source to avoid the bulge ... but I did not want to shorten my remote any more than I had to.
1. Cable connection of the speaker to your computer and the power cable if its plug in correctly. Normally the Audio cable of the speaker is plugged into the green audio port on the computer.
2. You speaker is on mute. Check the speaker icon located on the lower left side of you desktop. If its on mute then try to un-mute the volume and test the speaker.
3. The driver is not installed properly. Check the device manager if there is a Question/Exclamation mark on the Audio devices.
4 If everything are Ok. try to plug the Audio cable of the speaker to any of your Portable sound devices like Ipod. If that still does not work then you need to replace the soundbar. Contact Dell for a free replacement if still under warranty.
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.
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!
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
I would disconnect the power before doing anything! then go to radio shack and buy a cable with the correct plug on it. Then i would cut off as much as possible of the old cable to the speaker, but leave enough room for splicing effectively. Then i would cut open the radio-shack cable and connect the wires of that cable to the remaining wires of the old cable still attached to the speaker. red is left, black is right, and the un-cased wire is negative. Try to figure out what is what on your old wire so that you can splice everything together accordingly.
I hope this is not too confusing!!
