I just purchased a Dell XPS 8500 with Windows 8 and decided to keep using my old Harmon Kardon HK 206 speakers because I'm quite satisfied with these speakers. When I hooked them to my new PC, Windows 8 recognized them right away. The speakers work great on my new PC. Try going to the Control Panel and see if your speakers were recognized. (On my PC they're referred to as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). That's due to the default drivers in Windows 8. As long as you see speakers in the control panel, you should be OK. In that case you should check your connections. If you don't see speakers in the control panel, go back one screen and select add a device and let Windows 8 scan for any device that it hadn't recognized before.

SOURCE: HK206 SPEAKERS WITH USB PLUG

have you plugged anything else in to make sure the usb port is working? does the computer recognize the usb speakers when you plug the usb plug into the computer? do the speakers work on another computer? if you wiggle the usb wires around does it make a sound through the speakers? eliminate these questions so that we can move on to isolating the issue.

SOURCE: I have Harman Kardon HK-206

I realize you frustration in regards to this issue and am not sure what steps you have been walked through. This seems to be a driver conflict (other issues are also possible - sudden hardware failure even though coincidental as it may be). The first step would have been (assuming your still on a windows machine i.e. the Dell 4500) to do a "System Restore" on a date prior to installing any of the iPhone software. Then checked if the speakers had sound. If not the next step would be to check the hardware by: If you're running Windows 7 or Windows Vista, click the Start button, clickControl Panel, click System and Security, and then, under System, click Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
If you're running Windows XP, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, in the left pan click Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, check the information that came with your computer to see if there's supposed to be a sound card installed.
If there's a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card in Device Manager, there might be a problem.
Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.
If there is a problem with the sound device, it will be stated, and you might need to update your driver for the sound card.
You can double left click on the device marked and click the "Drivers" tab and select "Update Driver Button" to see if this will update the driver.
If this was successful, then restart your computer.
For further details on preforming these steps please see:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/no-sound-in-windows
If these steps did not correct the issue I would need a little more information or you exact sound card.

since they are stereo they should have not issue. just connect the 3.5mm jack to your output port typically the green audio jack.

It runs so hot why?


Possibly lack of ventilation or excessive volume through difficult speaker loads.

http://media.onecall.com/Image_Products/Harman%20Kardon/harman-kardon-hk990.pdf

See page 6.

IMPORTANT: When connecting two pairs of speakers, determine the impedance of each pair

by looking on the back of the speakers, in your owner's manual, or by contacting your dealer or manufacturer.

You can listen to two pairs of speakers at the same time ONLY if the impedance of EACH speaker is NOT LESS THAN 8 Ohms.

WARNING: Do not play sets of speakers simultaneously except as recommended above.
Amplifier may overheat.

Need the AC 15V 1.1a power supply


Hi Tracy,

Wow, this was a hard one. I called both Harman Kardon and Dell, seems HK made the speakers for Dell, but neither company carries parts any more. I called Radio Shack thinking they would have a generic power supply, not even close. I looked at several places on the internet and had no luck.
I do have a little good news, I was able to find a few on Ebay, so if you don't mind buying used, you can get a power supply there. They even have a Buy Now offer so you would not have to bid on it. The power supplies are listed as 1100mA which is the same as 1.1A.
Also, if you get the it and the plug in is not the right size, take the speaker to Radio Shack and they will be able to sell you the correct plug, all you will have to do is splice in the new plug. With it having an AC output, you don't even have to worry about the wires being crossed as you would with DC. Hope this helps you.
