Dell Speaker 215 problem

When moving furniture we plugged the router power into the speaker power input by mistake. Then plugged in the proper power. However, we get a loud hum/crackle and no sound - any ideas?

Would suggest that when you plugged in the router power supply it supplied a HIGHER voltage and you have blown the speakers.

Assuming something in the computer didn't mysteriously go bad during the move, there are two possibilities. First, make sure the signal cable from the speakers is plugged in to the right place. You may have plugged it into the microphone input or line input jack by mistake. Second, be sure the speakers have power. Most speaker systems require AC power, either from a plug-in adapter or a built-in supply that needs an AC connection. (Some newer systems come with USB-powered speakers that don't need an external adapter.)

A remote possibility is that in the move, the speakers got bumped enough to disturb connections on the circuit board inside. The amplifier chip in the speaker case gets hot (especially if the volume is turned way up), and the heat can degrade solder connections, and sometimes cracks form. The move may have caused connections that were iffy to go bad. But this isn't very likely.

You'll probably find it to be a very simple missed connection. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Speakers Plugged In Right But Wont Turn On??


If the power light on the speakers isn't on, then the power supply going to the speakers is either in a bad outlet (test the outlet with a voltage meter) or the plug isn't firmly seated. Best of luck in your new home and hope this solves your problem.

Speaker cable installation


1.  Check the orange multipin connector for bent or broken pins.
2.  Make you have the subwoofer plugged in to a live power outlet.
3.  Check the fuse on the circuit board inside the subwoofer.
4.  Measure the output of the subwoofer power transformer.  I think I remember it as being in the range of 12-24VAC.  Inspect the rectifier diodes for signs of overload.  measure the dc output of the diodes.  I think I remember 18VDC.  
5.  Open the right speaker and verify the on/off switch is working.
6.  New Egg sells a multitude of similar speakers in the $40 to $80 range.

Speakers won't work


Hi, you may want to try plugging the input line of the Dell speaker to the other jacks. Normally green is for speaker, pink - microphone and blue is for line-in and all are normally at the back of the computer. Sometimes, the back are deactivated if there are jacks in the front., so you may to try plugging it in the front if they are present. Assuming the speakers light/power up, if you want to check if they are working is by touching with your finder the input plug which should produce a humming sound. Also worth to check the drivers of your sound card. Hope this works for you. Regards.
