I have an older set of speakers but I have a newer computer. The plug end on the speakers is too big for the headphone outlet. Is there any way to modify the plug to fit?

You can buy an adapter for a couple of dollars at a music or electronics store.

How do i hookup the what i think is the power cord to the computer its a round plug in


If it's a power cord, it doesn't plug into the computer; one end goes in the wall, the other into the speakers.

For most speaker pairs, there are 3 wires:
1) The wire that connects the speakers to each other. That's often fused into the back of the left speaker, and gets plugged into the right speaker (it's usually pretty well marked where to plug it in).
2) The wire that connects the right speaker to the computer. Usually it's pretty well marked where to plug this into the speaker. On the computer, that wire will fit into 2 ports. Usually those ports are marked with microphone and headphone icons. You want the headphone jack. If they aren't marked, try them both or check your manual.
3) The power cord. One end of that will plug into an electric outlet on the wall (or into an extension cord or power strip). The other end will plug into the right speaker; it should only fit into one hole (which will probably be marked with "12V" or "0.5A" or something like that).

It would help if you told us what kind of speakers you have, and what kind of wires you're seeing.

Acer iconia tablet problem


Few things.
If you are talking about the built in speakers, make sure your volume is turned up. And make sure its turned up when the headphones are not plugged in. My android tablet has individual sound profiles so while I might have the sound muted when the headphones are not plugged in, if I plug them in, the volume jumps to my set level because that's where I turned the volume up to last time the headphones were plugged in. I've also had two tablets that the speakers went out completely on that to is a possibility but if you are talking about the built in speakers, check the volume levels first. You can get to them in the settings menu. Its worth noting that plugging anything into the headphone jack will "turn off" the internal speakers altogether.

If you are talking about external, plug into the jack speakers, on a tablet, you're going to need a set of powered speakers as that jack is not going to produce enough power to drive an un-amplified speaker. Make sure you are using a pair of speaks that plug into the wall such as PC speakers.

Second, if you are using powered speakers and still not getting any where, look at the jack end of your head phones and compare it to the jack end of your speakers. I know iPhones and other Apple devices have an extra connect which is why the Apple head phones all have an extra ring. My older headphones are worthless in my iPhone because they lack said extra connection. It's possible your tablet also requires the newer connection and the headphones have that while your speakers don't.

Broad answers, but I couldn't tell exactly what we were looking at based on the questions. Hope it helps, and good luck!

What you need is a splitter and not an adapter. Forget the colors yellow, green, black. They are not relevant. The business end of those colors occur inside the box. Dell manufactured these "bass ackwards". You need a 3-way headphone splitter and that will solve your problem. I bought a RadioShack Headphone Splitter Cable model 42-2458. Hope this helps. Just plug into headphone outlet

Cant get to play music without headphoes


Most modern computers come with internal speakers already installed, especially laptop computers.
These speakers may be sufficient if you are performing typical computer tasks, but when you play computer games, listen to music or watch movies on your computer, you may want louder and more vibrant sound.
You can achieve this by installing external speakers or headphones. These can be connected to your computer through the speaker or USB ports included on your computer.

Plug in the speakers or headphones.
If the speakers or headphones use a stereo plug, insert the plug into the speaker/headphone port normally located on the side or front of your computer.
This port is often color-coded green. If the equipment is connected using USB, locate a free USB port.
Some external speakers will also need to be plugged into a power outlet in the wall or your surge protector.
This may be all you need to do to get the speakers or headphones to work. If they do not, continue to the next step.
Open the audio settings on your computer.
From the Windows Start menu, open the Control Panel. Here you will find audio and sound settings.
Click the heading to see your sound and audio options.
Choose "Manage audio devices" in Windows 7.


Find your Playback device.
In the Playback tab, you can select your speakers and set them as the default for your system.
If you do not see your speakers or headphones, they have not been installed properly. Disconnect and reconnect them to see if it corrects the problem.

Configure your settings.
Select your device from the list and click "Configure" to test your settings.
You can adjust the volume by using the volume slider on your computer's task bar or using external controls on the speakers or headphones.

I cant get sound on my viewsonic va520


You need to add some information - what is the source for the video that you are viewing on the VA520? The VA520 has no speakers in it. If it is a desktop computer, look on the back of the computer for a green 3.5 mm stereo audio port. This is your speaker out connection. Plug in any set of computer speakers or headphones. (Computer speakers may require a USB connection or to be plugged into an AC outlet to power the speakers.) You can find cheap speakers for under $20; good speakers will be more expensive. With a laptop or some desktops, you'll find a headphone jack on the front of the computer. (This will be labeled with a small picture of a set of headphones.) The headphone jack is also a 3.5 mm stereo port.

I hope this helps.

(laptops usually have internal speakers; most desktops do not have any internal speaker anymore. If you have headphones with RCA audio plugs, you can use a RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M audio adapter to use them with the computer. A stereo system may not work with a computer.)

How do I plug my BA745 Boston speakers into a MAC desktop with one headphone outlet in the back?


I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.

Hooking up speakers


On the back of your computer tower (that thing with the power button on the front) you should see three small headphone jack looking thingies, with colored bands around them. Your speaker cord plugs into the green one, if you have a microphone, it goes in the pink one.

Your speaker set should have a wall wart type power supply, plug that into any convenient outlet, and plug the other end into the proper jack on your speakers.

The volume knob on your speakers is also an on-off switch, turn it on.

I was given "ALTEC LANSING ATP3 MULTIMEDIA 3PC SPEAKERS " However, It is missing the cable that plugs into the "input" that connects it to the PC. I realize I could probably buy one...


The cord you are looking for, that plugs into the "input" of the speaker and the speaker output (green) audio connector of your sound card looks like a plug for a pair of headphones. It will have the same type of connector on both ends, the male connector.

it is a 3.5mm male mini stereo plug at both ends.

Headphones have two type of plugs, the 3.5mm or the 1/4 inch jacks. The headphones for personal audio devices like an mp3 player, ipod or the like have a 3.5 mm, most older and some newer receivers have the bigger 1/4 inch jack for headphones.

so look at a pair of headphones, notice the plug on it, and then find one that has that same plug but on both ends of the cord.

If you need more help let me know, and if you found this advice helpful a "FixYa" rating would be appreciated.

Using headphones with Logitech X-230 speakers


I really don't know, because some of the newer gadgets come with fixed volume control due to law suits, ect. Try to see if you can bring you TV menu up and see what the sound setting is.
