HI
I know this sounds silly but make sure that your speakers are plugged in (I'm sure you have already done that). Try wiggling it around a little to make sure the connection is good. If you still get nothing then there are a couple things. First, if you have speakers from another computer try those to make sure your speaker connection on the actual computer is good.
If that works, your speakers are most likely defective. (not unheard of with Acer speakers)
If you just purchased them, try calling the manufacturer for a replacement. If you don't want the hassle, you can buy a decent computer speaker for $20.
Hope this was helpful
Have a great day!

I have just purchased a pair of EV speakers. Just a minor problem - the light on the front of the speaker (near the logo) works perfectly fine on one, but is not working on the other. Help would be...


If the speaker is working then the "power on" LED has a broken wire/bad connection or the LED has burned out. LED's don't burn out often so I would think it is a internal factory wiring issue. If they're still under warranty, have EV fix it.

Disconnect the speakers and try it with another speaker or speakers not in the truck. If it works, the speakers or the wires to them are messed up. If it doesn't you probably damaged the output capacitor in the radio by turning it on without speakers attached. Realize that the speakers are part of the radio circuit and act as resistance. Without them, there is no resistance and it puts a strain on the radio.

I Have a t7700 Creative speaker sytem that have a broken wired remote, i want to bypass him and use the speaker system without a remote(mkae him turn on only on max volume if necessary). how do i do i


Try this (I hope your system is just stereo.) Buy a jack to fit the headphone plugin. The plug that into the speaker input. That should reroute the sound to the speakers.

You have it right. Use a 12 volt test light to see if there is power between the gray and brown wires when the key is on. If there is power there, you may have got hold of a bad radio.

Speakers stopped working


If the speaker cable was pulled with a lot of force and at an angle to its connector, the most likely problem is a broken connection inside the wire. A visual inspection will not prove that problem but you can try connecting the speaker and wire to another output on the receiver. If the speaker and wire prove to be good then it's most likely that the solder point for that speaker output was broken on the circuit board.

Good Luck,

Speaker cable installation


1.  Check the orange multipin connector for bent or broken pins.
2.  Make you have the subwoofer plugged in to a live power outlet.
3.  Check the fuse on the circuit board inside the subwoofer.
4.  Measure the output of the subwoofer power transformer.  I think I remember it as being in the range of 12-24VAC.  Inspect the rectifier diodes for signs of overload.  measure the dc output of the diodes.  I think I remember 18VDC.  
5.  Open the right speaker and verify the on/off switch is working.
6.  New Egg sells a multitude of similar speakers in the $40 to $80 range.

No sound from speakers.


Hi...
On some stereo gear the headphone jack interrupts the speaker connection when the headphones are in. you "might" have something broken in the headphone jack which is keeping the speakers from turning on.
Is there a MUTE switch on the unit?
Or an "External speaker off" thingy in the menu?

No sound


This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).


  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.


  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.


  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.


  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.

400 watt amplifier not working


Disconnect all the speaker wires from the amplifier that runs the 6-speaker system. Switch off the amplifier or disconnect the remote turn-on wire, then re-connect it. Does the power light still flash with no speakers connected? If so, your amplifier is probably damaged. If not, then connect one speaker and see if it plays. If it doesn't, disconnect the first speaker and connect a different one. If the first speaker plays, continue connecting the rest of the speakers until you find the one that's causing the problem.
