Wireless speakers won't work

We have Velocity wireless speakers on our computer. They were working fine. We loaned them to some friends for a party they were having. They worked fine for them. Now we got them back and they won't work. There's no signal between the transmitter base and the speakers. Does anyone know what's wrong? Thanks.

    I have the same problem. The blue light that signals transmitter connection isn't on and there is no connection. This is happening to my Sharper Image speakers and a set we bought a friend from Audio Unlimited. They are the same speakers. Ours worker great last summer, now nothing. I see alot of these speaker available as referbs. Do we think THAT was the problem?

Do not restart them with the button, that won't reset settings, unplug everything from power for 5 minutes and plug them back.

SOURCE: HTS9800 Wireless receiver not working

I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.

Solution:
What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.

You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.



It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).

I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.

SOURCE: bose companion speaker stopped working!?

What happened to you is probably mere coincidence with your cousin's use of the headphones and this is throwing you off. I own the Bose Companions also and they stopped working as well. However, I traced the problem to the "wall wart" power supply. Not sure why but Bose is now using an interchangable plug on them. If you look at the power supply you will see a "PUSH" button. If you depress it the plug can slide out. When it is slid back in and locked in place the connection between the plug plate and the power supply is not a good one. Try fiddling with it. But even if the connection is not the culprit, something in the power supply is. I swapped another power supply with the same connector and spec's ( amps must be the same ) from another item and the speakers worked perfectly.

Video Off and on...mostly off


Normal 0 Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Settings must have changed and not not changed back, set your friends settings as default settings. He may have accidently reset something etc.

A quick solution is to go to
System Restore and reset it back a day before you gave it to your friend.

go to START > PROGRAMS >
ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS and you'll find SYSTEM RESTORE there. Click on it and find the option to set your Notebook to an EARLIER TIME. After selecting that from the list find a date BEFORE YOU LOANDED THE NOTEBOOK TO YOUR FRIEND and left click on it and follow the instructions and your COmputer will restore the system to that earlier date (it could be 1 day before you loaned it). You will not lose any files etc.

After it goes through a cycle of rebooting etc and it resets to the earlier date, your Network should work as it did before you loaned it to your friend.

If you have trouble finding SYSTEM RESTORE go to HELP and look for a link there.

Good Luck !
Cheers !

Monitor on but not working properly


If you just built the computer..the motherboard will give you a warning that some hardware has changed. you have to connect your keyboard and go into the bios and make sure everything is right. To be safe select set to default factory settings , save and reboot the computer. This is to prevent the settings for a previous cpu be used for the new one.

Computer Speakers


Try and plug your speakers into a friend's computer and check if they work. If they don't, then the speakers are fried, probably because of a voltage surge when the power went out. If they do work on your friend's computer then you most likely have a bad port on your computer because of the power surge.
