HK695 volume issues

I have a set of Harmon Kardon HK695 speakers.  When I plug the green cord into the headphone/output jack on my laptop,  I hear a faint sound coming out of both satellite speakers, but the volume knob on the right satellite does nothing.  the volume never gets louder or softer when I press the +and - buttons.  It does change when I change the volume on the computer, but it never gets louder than a faint noise.  I have tried them on multiple computers and the same thing happens.

    The speakers are powered and both LED lights are lit on the satellites.   The speakers were given to me by a friend, so I have not tried them on the original computer.  Could it be an issue that I am not using them with the original computer?

I just spent a few hours trying to figure out how to make the volume respond by pushing the volume control buttons on the right speaker - the volume was working, but only adjustable via the software settings for volume control in windows. When I swapped the plugs in the back of the woofer unit, the buttons on the speaker worked for controlling the volume. So if you're having the same problems as me, just swap these and it might fix your problem.

Make sure they are plugged into a power source if they are powered. If they are unpowered then your laptop may not have a powered speaker output and may not have enough power to drive the speakers.

HI Marc
Follow the steps below

Toshiiba satellite p205 Internal Harmon Kardon Speakers Do Not Work


Most likely its a nardware problem.
If Device manager shows the audio driver is working and enabled and when you plug an headphone into the headphone/audio out and you only get sound from the right headphone then the audio amp chip is faulty.
If the headphone sounds OK then the easiest solution is to connect a set of powered speakers to your laptop.

One side is working normally, I believe the other one may have a short of some sort in it, what would cause this?


Most probably the problem lies in the cord leading from your PC to the main speakerbox. This should be a standard DIN plugs stereo cable. Try wiggling this cable a bit and see if there are any changes, just to make sure that it is this cable. But even if there isn't any change, the probability of anything else going wrong is highly unlikely. If your PC gives normal stereo sound on headphones (eliminating the PC as a problem) then there's 99% chance that this cable feeding the audio signal is bad. You'll need to replace it with a standard DIN plugs stereo cable.
If however your PC does not give a stereo sound to headphones then double-click the speaker icon in the right lower corner of your screen, and see the output settings and output balance. The balance should be set to 50/50 so both left and right channels get the standard volume level, and that the output is set to standard stereo output.

I am having the exact same problem with my Harmon kardon PC speakers. It is related directly to the speakers (subwoofer). If you plug head phones into the headphone jack on the satellite speaker you will not hear the noise. I am still searching for a solution, I love these speakers!
