Question about Dell ADA745 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Dell E1505 speakers melted, New speakers smell burnt too.

My son had tried cleaning my laptop with soaked kitchen towel when turned on. Everything went out. When i tried turnign it on it did not. Water poired out. I disassembled the whole laptop and saw oxidation on the motherboard circuits. I cleaned it with a needle and tooth brush. But my speakers had totally melted. So I removed them. Even the top molding had started to melt, left some marks from the heat of the speakers. After the cleaning the laptop started. TG.
I got new speakers. But they too started smelling burnt and started heating up the top mold. Any particular reason why that might be happening. Any way to check or reset speaker system.

The speakers are heating up because there is a short in the audio circuitry on the mother board, and I would consider you extremely lucky if that is all that is over drawing current and heating up. You may get lucky and be able to connect external speakers to get sound without melting your laptop.

How do I remove burnt on cloth?


if cloth was polyester (I suspect it was) then the only thing that will debond it from stove top is more heat (not a flame) using boiling water with a stiff brush (with gloves) is a method I have used in past to debond melted on polyester

now if its cotton (not likely to stick) , a towel soaked in hot water will wipe it off

Burnt smell at the power plug


REMOVE IT IMMEDIATELLY!

If it looks like it melted even a little, then it's a problem because it heats up. Try cleaning up your computer and try to make it get enough cooling to avoid this.

My speakers don't work, I can plug in head phones or external speakers and they do work. it started after my son repeatedly pluged and unpluged the external speakers


There is a microswitch in the speaker jack of the system. It disables the on-board speakers when external speakers are connected. If sounds like that switch is stuck and the on-board speakers are staying disabled when the jack is removed.

Last summer my son left ice cream in the car, it melted


Is it on the seat/carpet? If so you might have to remove it and pressure wash it. if you can clean it off and remove smell with carpet/upholstery cleaners or put some coffee grounds and let it soak up for a day or so then vaccum it up

Dvds won't play properly and sound isn't right


Sounds like you may have an issue with it reading discs. It can probably play CDs fine because it's fast enough to buffer ahead of it since an audio CD isn't very much data compared to a DVD. Try cleaning the laser lens with a dry paper towel first (not moist or a dusty kleenex). If that doesn't seem to clean it, or you have visible smears or smudges on it, you may want to try a very very moist (barely the next level above dry) paper towel, then try it immediately.

If that doesn't solve the problem, try different DVD software (VLC Media Player, perhaps) or try a different DVD if you haven't already.

Towels smell burnt after washing.


Are you sure the burnt smell is coming from the washer and not from the dryer? If you've placed a rubber backed rug or other similar article of clothing, it is not uncommon for that rubber backing to melt and get embedded in the heated duct of the dryer . Not sure this helps but if you can clarify the point at which the burnt smell is first observed that would help..
Thanks

Dell E1505 internal speakers not working


You have verified that the sound card and drivers are working, by plugging in externals. This leaves only the speakers. Check and clean the speaker connections, they will sometimes work loose or get a little dirt/corossion build up. If the connections are good, then you will need to replace the speakers.
