Question about Harman Kardon HK595 Computer Speakers

Speakers do not work

Hello, My HK595 subwoofer has power but the two satellite speakers do not have power coming to it. This happened after I turned up the speakers to full capacity and some blew up in the subwoofer. There was a bit of smoke coming out the subwoofer after this incident. Obviously it's not the fuse since there is power to the subwoofer. Has anyone experienced something like this before and can anyone advise me how to fix it? Thanks, Tobin

Re: Speakers do not work

Re: Speakers do not work

You blew the amplifier in the speakers. If you are an electronics hobbyist and have some time you can probably fix it, otherwise they are not economically repairable. Probably not what you wanted to hear but the fact is PC speakers are fairly inexpensive these days and used units can be picked up even cheaper.

I am having the exact same problem with my Harmon kardon PC speakers. It is related directly to the speakers (subwoofer). If you plug head phones into the headphone jack on the satellite speaker you will not hear the noise. I am still searching for a solution, I love these speakers!

Loud noise feedback in subwoofer

Try another boosted speaker set. Then check.
Something is probably wrong in the speakers, not worth fixing...they are pretty cheap to buy.

Harman kardon HK595

I'm not sure of anywhere online, but I actually have a spare set of the satellite speakers sitting at my house, from a unit I had previously (the sub went out). I can make sure they work and get them to you if you'd like, email me at drkstr (at) gmail (dot) com...
But I have only one spare...
I'm not sure about wherever else you can buy them online. I was actually lookin to buy another set when I stumbled on this thread, but they're kinda hard to find lol. The whole unit used to be $30 for a refurb'd model, but those places are out-of-stock currently.
