Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Loud and strange noises

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, playback 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 tried what you said and the sound is fine through headphones.

    Is it possible that it's just in the central speakers then? And if so, is it possible to replace just that or will I have to replace the whole thing.

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.

    I just checked Ebay and you can get the whole system for about $30 less shipping. Probably not worth trying to purchase the one speaker or trying to get it repaired. http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll...

Hi...i cannot get sound out off my atmos speakers


The other part of the equation is your source; which is not mentioned in your question.
Your player must also be able to decode Dolby TrueHD and the audio output on it set to Bitstream.

If your satellite box is connected using a digital cable to the 601 receiver you won't get any sound through zone 2.Zone 2 can process only analogue sound ( inputs ).

Sounds like a couple of coincidental but unrelated symptoms.

Optical cables need precise seating and no tight bends.

Muffled, channel-specific sound is usually on the analog end. Speaker connections maybe.

5.1 Surround sound not working


Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps

DVD player not working properly


I have a DVD player, a VCR player, a TV set all hook into an RCA RT2250 Audio/Video receiver. Everything was working fine until 2 days ago. Now the DVD player gives me a great pix but no sound. The VCR,and TV are just fine and I have checked everything out, speaker connections, mute buttons, etc. and nothing seems to be wrong. I am thinking that some thing in the receiver got fried. Is it repairable?

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.
