Question about Altec Lansing VS2121 Computer Speakers
WHY WOULD THERE BE NO SOUND - IF STATIC THEY MUST BE HOOKED UP RIGHT
Check the configuration on the pc if this is what you are connecting it to and make sure that there is not an option to reroute the sound out the audio jack. Also make sure that the sound level is turned up for the audio you are trying to listen to such as wave.
If this is for a radio or an ipod type of device make sure that the jack is in all the way and not just most of the way. If it is not in all the way you can hear static but not the sound.
Lastly, make sure that you have it plugged into the audio out and not the microphone input side.
