Question about PC Desktops

ATP5 speakers. Power works fine for a while then begins to "flicker". Light on satellite control indicates power is going on and off unpredictably.

    So did this solve your issue? I've still got this issue, and the wires didn't seem to fix it. I'll take it apart to look at it if this fixed your issue.

    Have you looked at the wires on the speakers themselves? Speaker wires are very thin and may have a small cut in the wire.

The sub-woofer for the system sitting on the floor and the speaker wires had been connected for a long time. I disconnected all components and re-assembled them in an uncluttered location, making sure that all of the plugs were solidly pushed in. I have run the system and it has been operating properly for over a day now. This appears to have fixed the problem but only time will tell if this was a permanent fix.

Thanks for the follow up.

Power on Blue Light is flickering


In use or In stand by mode the blue light will flicker. It is a external signal on your computer that indicates that there are processes running on your computer harddrive.

It is not a problem.

I have no sound think I have my speakers plugged in wrongly


Hi
a few suggestons.
1. turn on the speakers, be sure that they have power and that the light is on, turn up the sound volume and touch the tip of the plug with your finger (there is no power in it, won't hurt you) you should hear a buzz or souncd, indicating that the speakers are working.
2. this plug goes into the speaker jack on the back of the computer, usually a green colored jack (hole).
3. you can see if Windows recognizes this by going to control panel/system/hardware/device manager, and look under the listing for "sound". there should be no icons with a yellow ! (which would indicate that the sound drivers are not installed).

Hope this helps.

Good luck

Pc wont boot up, instead a red light flickers.


Flickering LED means power supply is overloaded with something. It might be inside of the supply, but sometimes it is something else. Try that:
1. Disconnect everything from the motherboard except power supply and power button;
2. Disconnect all power connectors from all drives;
2. Remove any cards from the motherboard so all you have is power supply and motherboard with CPU and RAM, nothing else. You can keep connected the monitor and keyboard;
3. Press Power button. Will motherboard turn on normally?

If no - check electrolytic capacitors especially around the CPU, if some of them are "popped" replace them.
If yes - connect drives and cards one per time to localize the problem.

Yamaha YST-MS50...how does it work ??


I have a YST-MS30 myself. Judging by Yamaha's site, the MS50 looks like it's built pretty much the same way. The subwoofer by itself is pretty useless. The power switch and volume controls are built into the right satellite speaker. There is a level control for the subwoofer, but overall system volume is controlled by the satellite speaker. You also need the power supply (15 volts, 1.2 amps for the MS30, but probably different ratings for the MS50 with its higher power).

Actually, it would be possible to open the subwoofer and puzzle out which pins in the connector you would need to jumper together to turn it on, and you might be able to find a suitable power supply. But it seems like more trouble than it's worth. Complete new system with comparable specs are around $100 from online vendors.

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in


Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

Won't power up


  • Make sure all connections on the rear of Subwoofer are properly inserted in their connectors.
  • Check to see if LED illuminates on the front of right satellite speaker. If it is not illuminated, check the power connections.
  • Make sure power switch on satellite is turned on.

No sync means no video signal to the monitor. The rest sounds like a corrupted OS. This could be from a number of reasons, including a virus. If you have NORTON or MacAfee, Your open to a lot of attacks. Get AVG free, and use Mozilla instead of IE.
The reason the fans come on full speed is the MB senses a high temp on the CPU, until the bios fan control takes over after POST. This is normal on most systems.

I have purchased from Walmart 2.0 CH USB POWEREDSPEAKER SYSTEM.  UC-280.On plugging in the usb cable I get nothing from theToshbia laptop (running Vista).  The power light onthe speakers does...


Did you get a software CD with this speaker set? Check the box and ensure that it says it's compatible with Windows Vista. I'm not aware of any speaker sets that wouldn't be, but it's always a possibility.

Also, more importantly, plug in the speakers before turning the laptop on. Many powered speaker sets will not work if you plug them in while the system is on.
