Question about Creative Labs ITrigue 3400 2.1 Speaker White Computer Speakers

2 Answers

Stopped working. I-trigue 3400

Speakers stopped working. No sound from sub-woofer or satellites.

Power supply tests good.

I haven't done a continuity check on the internal fuse but it looks good to the eye.

The speakers are about 3 years old

    I have the same problem with my speaker setup. They suddenly stopped working. I sent them to a friend who was going to see if he could find the problem but he never got round to looking at them for a few weeks and when he did found them to be working perfectly. I had them back and after about 3 weeks they stopped working again. I have no idea what is wrong with them, a dodgy connection inside?

    Sound went really low, then went out completely within 30 seconds. Checked all connections and still wouldn't work. Unplugged and replugged power source and this go it working once again, but went out within an hour. Hasn't been playing any sound ever since. All wires, speakers, etc. treated lightly and appear in very good condition.

The stereo -jackbus is broken if your speakers won't work and your headphones are fine. The stereo jackplug holds a little switch at the back, which moves sideways if you connect headphones.
Solution is very carefully opening back end of stereo connector bus and reassembling the switch

A simple test to begin with is to turn the unit on (with or without the PC connected) and then quickly remove and replace the power jack form the back of the subwoofer a couple times. If you cannot hear and feel the pop/thump of the subwoofer, then test the output of the power supply, it should be about 13.5VAC (not DC). If you have good power, and no thump, your amplifier is likely toasted.

If you hear the pop/thump when you plug/unplug the power, then you're in good shape because the power supply and amplifier are working.
Odds are that the issue is mechanical and easily fixed. Bad jacks on the back of the subwoofer or on the remote, damaged cables, or a bad volume control (potentiometer). On the 3400 I just fixed, someone had yanked the remote cable, stretching and breaking a couple fine wires inside the remote

I just got my system today. All the speakers are working, except the sub-woofer. Any ideas what could be wrong (if not DoA)?


Did you connect power to the sub-woofer? Most subs have their own amplifier. Just check if there is also an on / off switch on the sub.

My I-TRIGUE 3400 wont work with windows 7 unlimate 64 bit


Hello
First be sure you have downloaded and installed the correct sounddrivers.Meaning win 7 64 bit.
Not to be confused with 32 bit.You need 64 bit.

Next go to control panel,sound.Click on speakers then configure.Choose quadrophonic or 5.1.
Then run a test on each.
Also go to properties.and be sure the levels are turned up.
You may need to reboot after you do this for sound to work.

My altect lansing bxr1121 speakers stopped working suddenly. I have checked all the connection but the power led is off.


Hi. i think it is the internal connections or jacks need to be resoldered, but first try to check the continuity of each wires. tact switch cleaning and replacement is another approach.

don't know but i'm in the same boat. the white connector on the subwoofer does not receive sound. either the left or the right speaker will work when plugged into the red female connectors but neither works with the right. fuse is all i can think of. know where to get one?

Sound is pulsing.


You probably have the power bar thing too close to the sub woofer, this will cause a pulsing sound! :D

I-trigue 3400 speakers


My 3400 worked yesterday, but today the subwoofer stopped working. I tried a lot of different things. In the end, I simply had to jiggle the wired remote connection to the subwoofer and it started working again.

No sound no nothing !


make sure :
1- the the speakers are connected to the sub woofer correctly
2- the sound driver is installed on your computer ( you can check that from Device Manager )
3- that you connected the sub woofer jack to the correct jack of your computer
4- the volume parameter is set to highest in your computer

if nothing works out then i suggest connecting the speakers to another device ( like ipod or mp3 player )

if either this won't work then the speakers are obviously corrupted :)
