the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

How to connect the right speaker straight to the board of the main Creative A200 2.1 speakers? My male pin is cut and lost, I want to solder the wires straight to the board.


Look at the board and trace the route of the circuit on the board. solder it to the trace closest to where the pin is on the board. You should be able to solder it to the stub of the broken pin as well. Just make sure you have no solder bridges when you are done. Best practice if you can is to take a picture of the area before you start so you can see exactly what was soldered and compare it to your repair, any solder bridge will be obvious.Don't overheat things traces are easily ruined by overheating!

A creative speaker SBS A200 connector pin was damaged. we need to connect that cable directly into the board.so we need that pin details.


Hi, I hope this helps,

Pins look like this: (Top view, not copper side)
1 2 3 4 5
6 7 8 9

1 = Thin white wire from thick white cable (Left input)
2 = Gray (Speaker out)
3 = Orange (+V return from volume unit to bass unit)
4 = Not connected
5 = Thin Red wire from thick red wire (Right input)
6 = Blue (+V power from bass unit to volume unit)
7 = Black (GND - if socket removed, solder 3 socket shield holes to each other or solder black wire directly leftmost hole)
8 = Not connected
9 = Shield copper from thick red wire

Shield copper from thick wire : Solder to GND or Left unconnected

I have creative 2.1 channel with sub woofer and 2 speakers (left&right) all of sudden my right speaker is not working left only working then I pluggeg right speaker to left speaker jack in sub...


I have a similar reoccuring problem with the left channel on my speakers. All of a sudden, while playing music or whatever, the left channel jusr dies. Turning the system off and then on again from the conrol unit does not remedy the situation. By chance, I discovered a workaround to get the left channel working again: Push the main power switch of the subwoofer until it almost switches off and then release it so that the power is never actually switched off. Now a click is heard in the system and the left channel comes alive again. This is quite annoying and seems to have something to do with switches in the subwoofer. Low quality components may have been used. I 've been thinking of getting another 2.1 system, but it's not easy to find one... Maybe I should open the subwoofer box and go through the switches and possibly hardwire some connections...

Subwoofer will not play with other speakers


Hello

It looks like you have posted this before. Unfortunately, I don't know what you have tried so I may be repeating some of your earlier troubleshooting.

The subwoofer needs its own power supply to function properly. if it isn't getting enough power, the sub will not work at all.

On the back of the unit, you should see a green LED when the power is turned on. Is this light on all of the time of does it fade / flicker? This would indicate the power supply is going bad and you need to replace it.

No sound from creative t3030 2.1 speakers


the circuit board and amplifacation supply inside the sub are blow or shorted out.thus preventing any sound. the head phone jack works only because it is a bypass feature supported by the actual computer not the surround sound unit

Yamaha YST-MSW10 subwoofer quits after about 10 minutes


This problem can be solved by either of the following:
1/ Modify the PCBA to prevent the auto shut off feature from working. This is done by adding a 20k ohm resistor across pins 1 & 2 on the timer IC6. This resistor will prevent the timer from turning off the amp. To do this, unplug the amp. Remove the 8 screws on the perimeter of the rear of the amp. Carefully remove the rear plate. Disconnect the speaker wires at the speaker and the front panel connection on the main board. Locate IC6 on the bottom of the main board. Solder a 20k ohm resistor (1/4W) across pins 1 & 2. Pin 1 and Pin 8 are noted on the board. Be sure to insulate the leads of the resistor to prevent contact with the board. See picture. Re-assemble in reverse order.
2/ Some 5.1 channel amps allow independent control of the volume for the subwoofer in their setup. Check your amp to see if you can raise the signal level going to the subwoofer to prevent the amp from shutting off. You can then dial back the volume of the subwoofer using the volume control on the front._436.jpg
