Why won't my Gigaware 2.1 multimedia speakers turn on?

Yes, I have them plugged in. Yes, I'm sure that they're plugged in correctly. No, I haven't had them for more than a week. A few days after having them, I decided I'd play a song from my phone. Well, after I got them turned on, and the sound input wasn't plugged in, I heard a lowish-pitched beeping that would change pitch and tempo whenever I adjusted the volume. I plugged the sound input into my phone's sound output... and nothing changed. Still the beeping. I looked to make sure that they were the right cords, that I didn't have anything messed up- and I was right, they were all correct. I then proceeded to turn them off and plugged the input into my computer, hoping that would make a difference. It sure did! Now the speakers won't even turn on! Whoopee! Aaaaanybody have any clue as to what's going on and how to fix it? I'd return them if it were just that easy, but just hours before we burned the box, along with all the other useless Christmas boxes. I have no idea where the receipt is, so returning them is most likely NOT an option. Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: x-540 speakers no sound rear speakers

rear speakers are not designed to put out the same output as fronts. They are for supplemental sound only, to make it seem like there's something happening behind you.

SOURCE: There is no sound coming from my speakers..

Check to see if the speaker s are plugged into the GREEN jack on the back of the computer.
It sounds like it might be plugged into the input jack.
Hope this helps. Bud

You seem to have opened up your speakers already. So, I think you should use your creativity to displace the parts a little so that no contact takes place even at max volume.

The subwoofer SP-PWM505 won't turn on.


Make sure its not set to Auto. Also check for a fuse in the back. Unplug the amp side and with the sub plugged in touch the RCA. You should hear noise from sub. Try this last. Some may say this is not good for the sub. Im in the business and never have seen it cause a problem

My samson servo 300's sound keeps cutting out, want to spray some electronic cleaner but not sure where ?


Yes; It maybe the protection coming on and off. This means there is a short in a speaker wire , or a blown speaker. The amp has 2 options for speaker hook up.1/4" plug and direct wire. If you are using direct wire it is possible to have frayed ends hanging around and can cause a short. You can test the speakers by unplugging them at the speaker, before you turn on the amp. Then turn it on, if the clicking still persist's turn off the amp and disconnect the speaker wires from the amp . Turn the amp back on. If the clicking still persists there is an internal problem with the amp. If not then you defiantly have either a wiring or speaker problem . You can test the speakers by using a 9v battery . Hook up the speaker wire to the speaker and put the battery on the other end of the wire, you should hear the speaker pop and see it move.If it moves it is still good. Note* this is also a good method of making sure your speakers are in phase. The battery is marked + & - the speaker will move forward when + is applied to the + of the speaker. make note of which wire is the +. if you get one speaker backwards it will cancel the sound of the bass. so hook the + to the red on the amp. Hope this helps you

Unit won't turn on. Yes it is plugged in.


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
