No sound coming out of speaker, but headphone jack works!

I don't know what's wrong, but I set up my system correctly, and stick on some music. But I can't hear anything coming out of the speakers. If I plug in my headphones (to the jack on the right front speaker), the sound comes out of the headphones. So - Signal is being sent from computer. - Won't come out of speakers/sub. Please help me!

Re: No sound coming out of speaker, but headphone jack...

Hi, I had the same exact problem. The speakers wouldn't work but sound came out of the headphone jack. 
To fix my problem, i opened up the subwoofer unit and checked the fuse on the circuit board which seemed fine. Then i had a look at the wiring on the other side of the circuit board and noticed one of the wiring had fried leaving a gap in the connection and exposing the copper wiring. So i just soldered the two bits of wire together. Works fine now!  I just had to be careful when i finished soldering that the exposed wire wouldn't touch any of the other connections. I insulated the wires with a glue gun to keep it all in place.
hope this helps.

Try changing the audio settings to digital through the control panel in Windows.  This worked for me.

It has to be your connections check them again paing more attention on the speaker connections and wither they link to the computer correctly. If it comes out one but doesn't the other then somethings wrong inside. Check this out use one only speaker for each connection at the back then isolate them indivdually in other words if one socket works then check to see if the other works keep the sound running when you test. if you isolate all sockets then conect the speakers up again only using a different pattern.

Suddenly no sound from speakers

First, we must determine if the problem is with the speakers themselves, or with hardware or software of the computer. Try plugging a set of headphones into the audio out jack of your system (often times, this will be a green colored jack). Play sound on the computer while listening to the headphones, can you hear the sound? If so, the problem is with the speakers, otherwise, you need to troubleshoot software/hardware of the system. Another method would be to try plugging these speakers into the headphone jack on an mp3 player, mobile cd player, stereo, or similar device. Aside from the system not putting out sound, the speakers could be plugged into the incorrect jack on the system (not audio out, OR not audio out on the correct device), or turned all the way down.

You need to change the sound profile from 2 speaker system to surround sound. You will find this in the control panel area program.
Hope this helps.

Creative Inspire 5200 system won't work

Hi. Check your speaker system with a different audio device like iPod or any MP3 Player using the same jacks. If the speaker system gives out sounds then nothing is wrong with it... if no sounds come out, then you know what I mean...

Try to replace the speaker of your sub-woofer... maybe that can fix it!

No sound!!!

Check your computer sound volume. Make sure it is not muted or the volume is set low. Try the speaker into a music player like ipod or mp3 player that will support the speaker jack. See if it works..

Make sure you have a sound card installed
    • you think you have a sound card installed but you don’t see it under the Sound, video and game controllers category, expand the Other devices category and check any devices listed there.
  1. If there is a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
  2. Make sure your speakers are plugged into a working power source and turned on.
  • Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.
    On your speakers, find the cable that plugs into your computer. Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer. For example, if the cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a universal serial bus (USB) cable, it will plug into any USB port on your computer.
  • Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, check the information that came with your computer and speakers or go to the manufacturer's website.

Sound from 4 speakers cut off..

To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.

Left Speaker Problem

Sounds like the left channel in the built-in amplifier went out or possibly damage in the connector or cabling. Quick test to eliminate the PC is to connect another set of working speakers or headphones into the PC speaker jack without making any changes. If it works w/o problems then it?s the speakers. You can try plugging the speakers back into your PC and while playing something start wiggling the left channel cables and the main cable that goes into the PC. In particular pay attention to stress points like connectors. If that turns up nothing and you have the appropriate tools and skills you can open the speakers up and test out the solder points for the cables as well. As always make sure your warranty has expired completely before you open them up or start cutting away. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
