I'm having the same problem with my speakers, and I'm convinced it's a faulty wire. I've noticed when I wiggle the connections on the back of the speaker the sound comes out intermittently. I'm currently trying to figure out how to open the casing so I can more closely examine the connections inside and hopefully fix the problem permanently.

    Just to update, I actually discovered two wiring faults that were contributing to the problem. The more immediate problem was a break in the line that connects the control speaker to the computer. The break was about two inches from the terminus on the circuit board inside the speaker. The second problem was a faulty ground wire where that same line connects to the board. Really, if you're really invested in keeping these speakers and you want to fix them, you need to locate any breaks in the line and cut it at that point, then you'll open up the speaker housing (six screws underneath the screen, one in back near the base), and unsolder the bad section of wire and reattach the good section to the board. You'll need a precision soldering iron for the work on the board, as well as a long, thin philips-head screwdriver to reach the screw in back. Of course, if you don't have a problem with the connection to the board you could always try stiffening/reinforcing the bad section of wire with some electrician's tape, but that's far from a permanent fix. If you have a little patience and good lighting, the soldering is easy to do and will give better results.

Where do I pug the speakers in ? I need a Picture,Show me the picture.

    • 1 Remove the Dell A215 speakers from the box. Place the speakers in your computer area. The speaker with the volume knob is the right speaker and should sit to the right of your keyboard. Place the other speaker to the left of your keyboard.
    • 2 Plug the left speaker into the right speaker. The left unit has an orange-brown plug that connects to a similarly colored port on the back of the right unit. The other end of the cord is fixed to the rear of the left speaker.
    • 3 Insert the two-prong end of the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Plug the other end into the black power port on the back of the right speaker.
    • 4 Insert the main audio cable into your computer. This cable is fixed to the back of the right speaker and has a green head. Plug the green connector to the green audio-out port on your computer. This port may be on the front or back of desktops or on either side of a laptop.
    • 5 Turn the knob on the right speaker clockwise to turn the speakers on and increase the volume. Turn it counterclockwise to lower the volume partially or all the way to turn the speakers off. The speakers should work automatically on any computer with a sound card.
Let me know if this solved the problem and good luck..

first check that the cabling going to the right speaker is not damaged then see if the plug for the speakers is damaged. if both are fine the speaker can be dissembled by removing the screws in the back or bottom of the unit and then popping them apart

Right speaker stopped working?

This is a very frequent case and it is not rare.
These speakers usually are not that much of a high quality, so the chances that these speakers (or one of them) will stop working is very high.
First of all, to check that hte speaker isn't corrupted, try making sure that all the necessary cables are properly put in their places:
Check that the two speakers are connected to each other (usually a cable coming out of the back of the speakers).

Secondly, check that your computer has not muted the right speaker:
Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Sound and Audio Devices -> Click "Speaker Volume..." button under the Speaker Settings frame -> Set all volumes to the max (Drag the slider with the mouse to the high right)

If none of the solutions worked, then there's a 99% chance that the right speaker has been corrupted or is malfunctioned. If so, I recommend buying a higher quality set of speakers.

Good luck.

Good day!
Please check the cord of the speaker if it is inserted at the right socket of your unit, or was the audio driver was installed? check if you see a speaker icon at the task bar. If you see an icon (speaker) maybe the speaker was not activated, double click that speaker icon, then, see if the volume was check, or other options, if none click options, properties, try other options by checking the box.
Thanks hope can solve your problem.
