Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Speaker issues I've had my speakers for over 2 years and they've worked brilliantly up until recently. The other day when playing a video on a website my sound suddenly went very loud and turning the dial on the central speakers didn't do anything at all. Instead I had to lower the volume of my computer. If that wasn't bad enough, now when I turn the dial it makes a strange noise through all of the speakers - like the sound they make when you touch a microphone or breathe on it... It also makes that sound randomly when I have the speakers on. Also, when having the speakers on, they will go silent randomly for anywhere between seconds and minutes before it comes back on, making the strange noise before it does. Other than the volume issues and the strange noise, the sound is fine - it's not distorted in any way just loud. I've tried reinstalling drivers and checking everything is plugged in OK, under the advice of computer savvy friends, but nothing has helped. Any ideas?

I just got my creative sbs 5.1 70 watt speaker 2 moths before.....everything was working fine but when other day i left the speaker on for 1 night the other day i tried to play it but the power was not...

Make sure all of the speaker wiring is seated fully in each connection point on the PC and speaker components themselves. Also, try leaving all of the speakers unplugged for a short while (1-2 hours), reconnect it all, then try again.

No sound when playing dvd from speaker system

I recommend going to the sound icon on bottom of main screen, right click, go to the properties and settings. Make sure the system is set for the same amount of speakers as you have. You can also use the test button and see if the settings are correct.
Make sure you are using the correct audio decoder or ac3 filter

No sound from logitech speakers, they worked 2 songs and then stop working i ve got control whit buttons on top of speaker but no sound please help

FOR MACS... Last February(08) I bought the V20 Logitech speakers for my Apple iBook laptop. I got them to work. Hadn't used them for about a year and had forgotten how to get the sound to emerge. I went to System Preferences. Clicked on Sound. I had plugged in the USB. Didn't show up. Unplugged it and plugged in again and there it was! I clicked on it and the sound came through immediately. So wait to plug in the speakers until you have opened Sound. (And Pandora (superb Internet radio station) is playing flawlessly.) I am not familiar with PCs. Sorry.

First things first:
1) check your speaker for good connector, and all is working is playing fine.
2) check if your warranty covers one SPK. or RMS

Loud and strange noises

The built-in speaker amp or the volume switch may be going bad on you. A quick test is to disconnect the speaker set and replace it with a headphone or another working speaker set. If it behaves normally then the problem is in your original speakers, if not then you may have software driver issues or less likely an issue with the sound card. Let us know what you find out.

Multimedia speakers not playing up to potential

After I posted my problem, I browsed a bit further through the other posts and solutions, until I came across the excellent solution of TrickyTrev34 and gave it a try. However, I did not slice the cable, but did it as follows: <p> 1. Switch off power of the sound system on the subwoofer box. Disconnect the Front Right (FR) speaker box (the one with the volume control) from the subwoofer box.<br>
2. Remove the silver coloured metal oval on which the speaker box stands. Now you'll see a small screw at the bottom of the speaker box. remove it.<br> 3. Carefully remove the silver coloured metal protection plate (with all the little holes) from the front of the FR speaker box by wedging it from the top with a flathead screwdriver or other thin blunt object. Now you'll see the speaker and 4 holes with screws inside. Remove screws and speaker box opens up..<br> 4. Inside you should see six wires (Red, Blue, Yellow, White, Green & Black). Carefully cut the GREEN wire only. Insulate the both ends of the GREEN wire with electrical tape or heatshrink or similar.<br>
5. Put the FR speaker box back together in reversed order.<br> 6. Connect FR speaker back to the subwoofer box. Make sure the volume setting on your PC is very low, because when you switch back on the power of the subwoofer, you should be blasting again.<br>
<p> As TrickyTrev34 already mentioned, the only downside of this procedure is that it will disable the volume control on the FR speaker, but who cares, your sound system works again, and you can still control the volume via the PC playback control panel and/or the multi-media keyboard if you have one.<p>Thanks for giving the lead trickytrev34.
