SPEAKERS WORK, WOOFER DOES NOT


as far as i know these speakers contain the and everything else in the subwoofer. The good news is that the system itself works, as the speakers produce sounds. If you feel like taking the system apart yourself , you may check for some wires that got de-attached from the subwoofer, if not, i would advise you to take the system to check it by technical support.

Remote sends tv crazy


The volume controller may have been damaged from a power surge or internal disturbance; not related to the a remote control. Your TV has a set of External Out connections, usually RCA jacks colored RED White and/or Black. Red and White jacks are relative to Right and Left Speakers when an attached cord with RCA male connectors are used and connected to an Amp or some type of receiver. You should be able to use the TV OUT Audio to a small Amplifier and connect to a set of inexpensive speakers or any external speaker set. This method bypasses the TV's Internal speaker system as an alternative measure.

You can't connect the speakers to your TV. I doesn't have any audio output available, just inputs. Those are for connecting the audio from sources like DVD players, and they go in to the TV's sound system. But there's no way of getting the sound out except through the set's internal speakers. The surround system you got is great for a computer, but it's not what you need for TV use.

The only solution I can offer is the suggestion that you invest in a home theater receiver. You can get decent basic systems with the receiver (often with DVD/audio CD playback capability built in) and surround speakers at reasonable prices. Then you use that to drive the speakers, and use the TV just as a video monitor. Then you will have surround sound.

When speakers are connected to the computer, they produce a popping sound every second. However, when headphones are connected to the speakers the sound works fine.


Hi there,
these speakers are quite problematic aren't they!! From the information you have given there is either a problem with the mains trans former or the internal wiring. Neither of which are user serviceable.

There is no sound. I have connected it to my new Toshiba laptop


Hello there,

When you plugged it into your laptop, turned it on and increase the volume, do you hear only a humming sound from the speakers? Try to plug the speaker to an mp3 player as well to test if it still doesnt give out any sound. If it still doesnt, then your speaker must have a wiring connection problem inside that needs resoldering. Here I supposed that your laptop's internal speakers is working and is able to work with other audio devices like a headset or an earphone.

I don't know what is the operating system you are using with your computer.Still we can check, first we need to find out if the problem is with the speaker or with the computer.

Try these steps
  • connect those speakers with other computer check the sound, if you are getting sound there it means speakers are ok need to check computer audio setup and hardware.
  • If you are not getting any sound connecting speakers with other computer then it is speakers need to replace.

Incase speakers are ok Disconnect the speakers

  • restart the computer,check if there is windows sound if not
  • right click on the volume control icon on the left hand button corner of the screen,uncheck the mute option.still not getting any sound?
  • try to download the audio driver from the dell support site.still not getting
  • need to check the internal speaker connection,if it is fine
  • go to this website http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and click on Restore sound -windows Audio service and run the tweak,YOU NEED TO USE INTERNET EXPLORER
  • still you cannot hear the sound change the internal speaker.

No sound from speakers


Probably.
Do they connect to the computer via USB or mini plug?
If mini plug, make sure you have the right jack on the back of the computer (there's two)
Then go into System Preferences ... select "Sound" and see if you can select something other than "Internal Speakers" - the computer may just not be aware that you want to use the external speakers ...
Are the speakers powered? Is there a volume control on the subwoofer, or an external fob with a volume control on it? You probably know this if you used them previously with your Compaq computer ...

Good luck!

How to connect unpowered subwoofer to receiver with RCA sub out?


In order for this to work, you will need an external amplifier. Your receiver is set up to use a "powered" sub. With only speaker connections on the sub, it is a "passive" sub requiring a separate amp.

No sound from speakers


Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work.
TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones.
The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones.
If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged.
If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open.
Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged.
It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.
