Broken ''pin'', on system connection chord

One of the small ''metal pins'' in the round connector that plugs into the back of my Boston Accoustic BA7800 speaker system, which is for my Gateway computer,...broke off. Where can I get another chord/connector, or is it possible to fix the problem? No sound now that the pin is broken. It is one of a ''9'' pin configuration.

How do i connect the boston BA745 comp. speakers to my gateway desktop?


Assuming you have the BA745 2.1 speaker set up, all of the cables connect to the subwoofer and then to the computer or the satellite speakers (these are built into the speakers IIRC). Take the cable with the black box (2 pins) to red and green. The red and green plugs go into the matching color ports on the computer and the pins on the black end fit into the jacks between the those for the two satellites. Plug the single end speaker cable into the subwoofer port all the way to the right on the back of the subwoofer. Plug the wire with the two plugs into the matching color jacks (blue to the left, red to the right). Then plug in the power adapter cable in the farthest left jack and plug in the other end to a surge protected power strip (that is plugged in and turned on).

Can the Boston BA 7900 be converter to use with TV or DVD Player?


Yes, but so far I can only get the 2 front speakers and subwoofer to work.

You need a wire that converts a headphone-style jack (like the green one with the Boston speakers) into a red and white AV connection (typical CD/DVD, etc. connection). I've had this connector for a long time and I'm guessing it's under $15. You connect the green Boston speaker connection to the converter end (mine connects to the back end of the headphone-jack (which has a hole for the connection) and the red/white AV connectors to your TV.

I'd been trying to solve the problem too for a long time. Only problem is that I can't get all 5 speakers to work because I think the red/white connector doesn't work with all 5 speakers. I have yet to figure out how to make all 5 work, but the system gives great sound anyway. You will have something like a 5.1 system with your computer speakers, the Boston speakers and subwoofers.

One more issue is that if you connect it directly to the TV, you have to manually turn the Boston speakers on and off.

Broke pins on blue cable


All you would have to do is visit a computer store and show them the cable that is broken and you will have to buy a new one. Sadly thje pins in those are not made to be replaced. Hope this helps your problem.

Connecting BA735 digital 3.5mm plug with S/PDIF coax jack


The male mono plug (from the left small speaker) should be connected into the right speaker (small speaker with controls) . After plugging the multi pin cable from the control speaker to the sub-woofer you need to plug in a signal source from your computer (or any other digital signal) into the sub-woofer. This digital input looks like an ordinary RCA plug but carries many channels of audio. That connects to the enabled digital output of your computer. Some computers output digital through a 3.5mm jack others look just like an RCA phono jack. If you are lucky some BA735 sub-woofers have a second input that is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack and it will take analog audio from computer, DVD, MP3 player or the like. I have three sets of these speakers that I love because of their big volume considering such a small size.

Broken orange plug on right speaker going into subwoofer


Other posters to this forum have said this connector is available at Radio Shack.  If you can't find a connector here is a workaround that will do the job:

If there is a broken pin you can bypass it by cutting open the cable jacket and delicately soldering a 6 inch or so jumper onto the affected wire, and then  solder a jumper to the appropriate point inside the subwoofer. Pass the subwoofer jumper out of the case (drill a small hole) and connect it to the jumper you added to the cable.

Green plug won't connect to audio out/headphone jack


Yes.. It is a broken connector. What to do is to purchase a replacement 1/8 mini connector at an electronics supply store such as Radio Shack, cut off the broken connector and strip the ends off the wires and solder the wires onto the new connector.
