Your Motherboard has been dismantled inside your TV, most likely from being bumped, shaken, carried, or maybe just from being old and dirty. There is no possible way to fix it without the help of mechanics. If the picture does not work also, then your TV is busted. To get the speakers' motherboard repaired, I suggest you go to a proffesional Technology Shop (such as The Source) and get it repaired for around $50 - $85.

`Have trouble adjusting volume.When i try to adjust the volume tone is very scatchy and breaking up..something seems to be wrong with volume control knob.


1) Turn your speakers off.
2) While blowing a can of compressed air into the switch, twist the knob up and down a bunch of times.
3) Repeat step 2 for roughly 10 minutes, blowing the dust out of the volume controller.

Try it again..

Good luck!!

It shows the speakers are on but no sound


If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)

Speaker will not work. Cannot adjust the volume.


Make sure you can see the small LED light on the speakers. If I remember correctly, those speakers are USB powered, and need to be plugged into the USB port for power, and the green audio output port for sound signal. If they are plugged in, and you cannot turn them on, you have broken speakers. If you CAN turn them on, then ensure that the audio cable is plugged into the green audio output jack (sometimes it has a headphone icon by it) and make sure your computer has not muted the audio.

Can you help me?


Hi

Check your speaker connections and volume adjustment knob.

If there is a power light indicator of your speaker make sure it is working so that you will know that there is power passing into your speaker.

Hope is helps..Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

Speaker/sub bass


Hi, it is possible that the sub volume control is worn out. If your particular brand/model uses the rotary/wiper type (variable resistor) then replacing it should do the trick but this involves soldering which be done by an electronics technician or qualified to perform such repairs/replacement. Hope this helps. Cheers.
