Question about Dell A215 Computer Speakers

Speakers don't work

A couple of days I noticed that the speakers don't work; when I turn on the speaker control switch the light doesn't go on. I've checked all the connections, unplugging and replugging them; made sure the audio is on via the control panel, and have done a system roll-back, so seem to have exhausted the diagnostic methods. I'd appreciate any further suggestions.

My speakers don't want to turn on

Hi ,
Sometimes , new speakers just don't work from the beginning and you need to bring them back to the retail shop under waranty .
Before doing that , check your soundcard by connecting it's output to another sound set , like your hifi or another speakers set . If this doesn't work , you could be just facing a driver issue that can easily be solved by downloading and installing the correct driver from the manufacturer's site .

Need Parts OR need to fix !!!

Open up your computer
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer

to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good

or you might have to clean the dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems

hope this helps you

Control pod quit working i have a inspire 7800 is there a universal that i can use

I have the same set of speakers and it seems to be a common problem. I've noticed that I can usually get it to work again by disconnecting the power to the unit for 5 minutes and it'll start working again. If that doesn't work, unfortunately, the control unit is proprietary. You might have some luck if you contact Creative support.

Go to "Contact Us" > "Customer Support" > "Technical Assistance" > "Speakers" and provide a description of the problem along with the model number of the unit.

Seems to be no power to speakers.

Disconnect green speaker jack from computer and see if you get a green power light on speakers. If the speakers indicate they have power, your sound card or circuit is shorting out the speakers. If you still have no power to the speakers when disconnected from computer, then no green light means no power to speakers. Either you’re A.C. adaptor is bad or the speakers are shorted out. You have 2 options:
1) Replace A.C. adaptor.
2) Replace speakers.
If you buy new speakers, make sure that they have their own power source (A.C. adaptor).

Thank You.
