White audio out port not working Properly

The speaker itself works. I've used other speakers on my computer which also work with no problem, on the subwoofer the white audio out seems to be faulty. Once in a while if I wiggle the cord, the sound comes out at the correct volume. I've tried other cords on the subwoofer as well. It seems that for whatever reason the plug isn't connecting enough to get full sound. The sound that I do get from the white port is very quiet. Is there a way I can fix this?

My computer doesn't detect my speakers, I do have windows 8


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.

Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer.
If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again.
If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)

I hope this helps.

Hi Sirtuan.

Go to the system panel, there choose "sound" . a list with all available sound devices appear. search for your bose soundlink and make it your "standard device".

if your bose get disconnected the sound should automatically switch to pc speakers.

I connected a speaker bar directly to my new LG TV. The speakers came with two audio cables ( red & white) and one video cable (yellow). I connected the red & white cables to both devices - red...


You can only get the television to recognize the external audio when connecting to its audio OUTPUT. If it does not say OUTPUT on the television where you've connected the red and white cables between it and the spear bar it is not going to work. You'll have to connect all your devices to the speaker bar with red and white cables and to the television with a yellow or green, blue, and red cable for video.

3. Re install the audio drivers. LINK
4. If steps 1-3 don't work, then take your speaker to your friend's computer and see if it works there? if yes then something is wrong in your computer system, if no, then something is wrong in those devices.
Refer to this image below. From your speaker the 3.5mm jack should be plugged at back of I/O ports LINE OUT.

Can not get my speakers to work


Hi,

Try to check if the speakers has power and if it is properly connected to the audio port of your computer. Mostly, it is connected to a green port at the back of your desktop. If it doesn't work, try connecting your speaker to the audio green port to the front.

You may also try checking the audio settings of your computer.


Keep me posted.

Thanks.
