Can a subwoofer affect a computer monitor?

My Mac sits on a desk and my surround sound sits on the floor under the desk; can the magnet in the subwoofer make my video/display go bad?

Most computer speakers are (SHIELDED) and this protects electronics from the magnets in the speakers! So you should be safe if your surround sound system is made for a computer system! ( if not two feet is a safe distance)

So i have a subwoofer (188W) with some serious power. Next to it i have a surroundset (about 0,5 meters apart). On a day i had my subwoofer on at full power and then the surroundset turned off (becaus


You should move your surround set a little further so it doesn't interfere with the subwoofer. It may say .5 but the surround set may have a magnetic field that requires it to be further away. Just move it further and you should be good.

Are my tr-2810 tower speakers shielded? Will they ruin my television?


if you are using lcd monitor then it will not do any damage to it. however, if it is a crt type of monitor then yes it can or may damage the monitor. if the speakers do not that they are shielded then you should assume that they are not and should be placed away from the crt monitor because the speakers magnetic field will affect the crt magnetic filed used to display the picture on the screen. speakers with high magnetic fields and are unshielded should kept away from crt type monitors! lcd monitors do not use magnetic fields to bring a picture to the screen so it will not affect these types of monitors.
you nay also check your user's or owner's manual for more information on you speakers and maybe check any of the manufactures web site as well. but it better safe the sorry to keep the speakers away from the monitor in question.

Hi .. i have just bought a logitech x 530 speaker and only 2 of the speaker parts work .. can you please give me some solution advice?


Hi names Rui i like to help you by giving you step by step instruction in propely hocking up your logitech speakers:

Instructions

1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.

2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.

3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.

4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.

5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.

6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.

7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.

8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.

9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.

10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...

hope this will help you solve your problem.

A lot of line on the screen & black cycle appear under left corner of the screen.But, we can use Excel and other application .


This happens if you have any strong magnetic field near by the monitor like speakers etc.

I suggest you to keep that a bit far from the monitor as the magnetic field of it will affect the monitor screen.

And press menu button in monitor and search for the degauss option (Most of the monitors have this option), press degauss option, this must fix your discoloration issue.

Have in built sound card in D845HV mother board. Experiencing heavy distortion as soon as the mic is connected. It was working well till last month.



Distorted or scratchy sound can be caused by several problems. Improving the sound can be as simple as rearranging your hardware components. The following suggestions may resolve the problem of scratchy sound:
  • Are there any other devices around the speakers or wires for the speakers? Electro-magnetic interference can cause poor audio. Try moving your speakers and wires around and away from other devices.
  • Have you recently added any new cards to your computer? Cards within the computer can also cause electro-magnetic interference. Try moving the card to another location within the computer, if possible.
  • Verify that you are not encountering a hardware issue with the speakers you have by trying another pair of computer speakers.
  • Poor audio quality or low volumes may occur if you are using passive (non-amplified) speakers.
  • Are your speakers too close to your monitor? The speakers can pick up electrical noise from your monitor so move them farther away. Subwoofers should never be placed near the monitor because their powerful magnets can interfere with the picture. They should be on the floor to maximize low-frequency transmission.
  • Are you experiencing sound problems only with particular games or programs? If you notice sound problems such as stuttering voices and static on some games or programs but not others, check with the software vendor for a software patch.

Also make sure to inspect your microphone, and the cord that connects it to your PC, for physical damage.

If you're still experiencing issues, you may need to replace the your microphone.

I hope this helps.

Samsung 794mg --- problem in monitor screen --- uneven colour mix


sounds like the monitor experienced being close to a magnetic field.

if the monitor doesn't have a auto degaussing (demagnatise) function on start up, then try using the degaussing function on the monitor (in the menu somewhere).

if no good, then you can try moving/waving a magnet near the affected area. b careful! slowly wave the magnet from a distance 1st, until you have improvements. too close and it will change the colours further!

Unwanted sound from subwoofer.


switch your subwoofer off from the socket for at least 30 minutes and check if the noise is still there,if its still there open it and play a movie then press it lower if the sound stops then you will have to put some toilet papers at the back of it ,thats what I did to mine.

Brightness adjusting without my input


sounds like the backlight is failing already. If it still under warranty, take it back and have the manufacturer fix it.
