If you have a multimeter, measure across the speaker connector (2 pins on the same plug) and depending upon the make and spec of speaker. you should get between 2 and 16 ohm reading. If a sjhort circuit is shown, then normally the speaker coil ahs blown or there is a short in the actual jack plug. replacing this plug appx 6cm in from the plug should remove any damaged part of the cable. Kind regards

Creative A60 speakers plugged into PC, sound only coming from left speaker, they both work ok with mobile phone etc


Lower the volume a little then unplug the speakers and touch the blank parts from the plug. Listen it both speakers give a hum. If so, you have to look in the computer. First check settings like volume and balance, then check you did plug in correct and if it is still only left, perhaps you have to replace the sound card. (or plug one in)

HELP ! No/limited volume from satellite speakers


1. Make sure all wall and power outlet switches are on and that all switches for your speaker system are on. Cycle the power switch.(switch is located on the back of the subwoofer) Check power LED on left and right speakers. Is the LED on? If not, power is not getting to your speaker system. Make sure the power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet. 2. Ensure that the speaker input jack is pushed all the way into the appropriate jack. Check all the connections and secure them. 3. Check the connection to the soundcard. Make sure it is connected to the proper jack. This varies from each soundcard manufacturer. (Please refer to your soundcard manual.) 4. Your volume settings are too low or muted. Increase your volume by pressing the + key located on top of the right satellite. You can also check your volume through the volume control located in the taskbar. To mute and unmute the speakers, press the + and - controls at the same time.

the part that is for your problem
This is an indication that the satellite speakers are not plugged in all the way to the subwoofer. You will hear a slight "snap" sound if they are plugged in all the way. The inputs are color coded and shape coded (triangle and square). Make sure they are aligned properly.

Crosley CR6001A: Left speaker barely audible


Hi Eric,

I understand how frustrating this problem can be. The problem can be the result of several different things. Two of them are 1) blown speaker and, 2) blown left amplifier output.

Try listening with stereo headphones. If you can hear both channels clearly, the amplifier is most likely functioning correctly. This is desirable as amp repairs would probably be more costly than a driver (speaker) replacement. Make sure you vary the balance controls while checking for output on both L and R speakers. If the sound is intermittent, the volume or balance control may have dirt built up and may return to working properly by liberally spraying electrical contact cleaner around the stem (knob removed) with the unit unplugged. Use the extension tube to pinpoint the output along the stem. Be careful to keep from over-spraying as it may damage plastic and wood cabinetry. After spraying, rotate the knob fully back and forth several times and then plug back in and try for sound again.

If you can't restore the volume to the left speaker, you may have a blown speaker. This usually happens as a result of excessive volume which leads to distorted sound. If played this way long enough, damage to the speaker is unavoidable.

The speaker can not be fixed - but may be replaced. Replacing the speaker is something most people with conventional hand tools can do - with the unit unplugged. Finding the information on the speaker may prove to require some digging however. You'll need to know the size, wattage rating, impedance value in ohms, and frequency response. It would be best to obtain the exact replacement part if possible.

Other than this, you'll probably need to have it serviced professionally. Good luck!

Hi,,in most cases what causes one side of the headphone to work is because, the wire that is connected to speaker inside the headphone might have cut and it's not contacting properly.

What you will need to do is to open up the head phone (left),and check if the wire inside has not cut, If it has removed ,then you will need to put it back with soldering iron and a lead...

But if the wire inside has not removed and they are intact, then you will have to replace the left speaker .

Hope that helps...

I've tried three different sets of speakers and each time the left speaker will not work. I've also tried plugging in my headphones and my left headphone wont work. I've checked all the volume controls and...


Well the jack you plug in has three surfaces. So when you pulled it part way out then the left speaker part of the plug came in contact with the right speaker contact inside the jack and it worked. Speakers are good so if you have checked your volume control in Windows and checked that the balance control is centered it could be that your sound card is defective. You didn't tell me what kind of computer you have and if the sound card is built into the motherboard or if it is an add on card. I don't know if you only have the Window's sound control in Control Panel or if your card has a seperate software for configuring your card but I think the only thing that might disable the left speaker has to be the balance control in Window's sound control or the seperate software.

I've plugged in my speakers and the woofer but only the left speaker will play sound and its almost a whisper


Try to check for sound manager to check balance is on for both sides (left right) and wave balance is normal value. To call master volume just duble click system tray volume icon (next to clock) and check it.
