    have you tried to see if there is a short in the wires? cause it sounds like you may have a bad wire or something just isnt connecting right

Make shure you have the correct polarity ,black negative and red is positive ,also make shure you have enough of the end of speaker wire stripped , if that is all good then remove the speaker from your system and hook it up to a regular stereo so you can test the speaker , if the speaker still does not work then you have internal problems in that speaker , if the speaker does work then you have problems with your sorround channel , if both the rear channels are not working it is highly unlikely that both speakers are defective so you probably want to consult the manufacturers warranty and let them either replace the speaker or speakers or the unit that supplys the power to the speaker , hope this helps you and good luck, glenn

    you can also take the system back to where you bought it if it,s still under warranty and have them replace it , The systems that have dvd player and amplifier all built into one unit have become popular but I prefer the seperates when it comes to home theater ,most people today already own a dvd player so you can hook that up to receiver type surround system that comes with sub woofer and speaker set up , I just purchased a pioneer system that comes in a box with subwoofer and center chanel ,front speakers and 2 rear surround speakers and everything is color coded for ease of hooking up ,but in your case if you,ve already did the speaker check thru the test tone and independitly you should see if the manufacturer will send you a replacement speaker , anyway theese manufacturers are usually pretty good in their customer service and they also have support lines you can call in the back of your user manual , again Hope everything gets straightened out ,Glenn

Drivers side speaker not working


Remove the radio and locate the wires that run to the speaker, first check to see that the wires were connected to the big plug that goes in at the back of the radio unit.
if it is connected take the plug loose. carefully strip some of the wire leading to the speaker big enough to place a AA batttery terminals. hold one of the wires on one of the sides of the battery and then tap the other wire (expsed portion) on the other side of the battery, if the speaker makes a noise, then the wireing is fine and the issue is either a setting on the radio. or the radio is faulty. if the speaker does not make a noise, check to see that the speaker is properly connected. if the speaker is connected, do one last test on it before replacing it. remove the connections on the speaker and place small lead wires on it and do the battery test direct.

Hello, I just bought a BEHRINGER MS40 from an authorized dealer "SENIA" from Romania, I'm from Romania by the way, the woofer speaker from the right side is making noises when the frequency is...


Have you connected the Left speaker to the right speaker using the supplied cable? If not, connect the cable to the socket on the back of the right speaker labelled "to left speaker" and on the left speaker, to the socket labelled "from right speaker"
If this still doesn't solve the problem, try swapping the input cables (put the white plug in the red socket and vice versa) to see if this makes the left speaker produce sound, if it does, check the connection at the source to check the plug(s) are in all the way. If there is still no sound in the left speaker, unplug everything and do the following:
connect the left and right speakers with the supplied phono lead (Probably black) between sockets labelled "to left speaker" and "from right speaker"
then connect the source to any of the inputs on the back of the right speaker (ensure if using the red and white phono inputs that both are connected)
finally plug in power source.
Hope this helps

Hp m1522 mfp plugged in printer and it makes a constant static noise. Plug is in right.What do I need to do to stop the noise? thank you


Hello, what you are hearing is the speaker.

The speaker needs to be adjusted.

This entails removing the left side cover as you face the printer.

Make sure the power plug is removed before proceeding.

Theres on black scew on the rear side of the cover.

Theres a clip underneath that needs to be depressed.

The cover should peel away, from rear to front.

You will see the speaker, its held in by one screw holding the bracket.

Try loosening the screw and turn the speaker a bit.

It's a bit of trial and error to find the sweet spot.

Be aware of the terminals of the speaker dont short em out.

Good Luck!!

7.1 speaker setup: no sound coming from right front/surr speakers


Solution to having no sound coming from certain speakers in a 7.1 speaker setup for TX-SR606 receiver when playing a DVD.

Review the cable setup for the DVD player since it was identified as the source of the problem. Best to unplug and plug in the cables to ensure they contact the back of the receiver's RCA jacks. Redo the microphone setup for Audyssey 2EQ calibration. A good chance that it is the cable that may have caused the malfunction and loss of sound from the speakers. The cables can come loose during setup and not plugged all the way to the back of the RCA jacks or a defective cable causing signal loss.

Wireless speakers


You should have two pieces for your wireless rear speakers setup. A. a wireless card inserted behind the all in one receiver. B. the receiving box that will connect to the 2 rear speakers.Also,you should not have any obstacles to block off the line of site for the rear speaker receiving box to the wireless card.
Best way to test it is too simply leave the rear speakers connected to the rear speakers receiving box on the floor near the a/v receiver with dvd player built in.Play a dvd and see if you have sound coming out from the rear.

Hi!, use a multimeter to test (With the car key in "ACC" position) from what cable your old stereo was receiving power, when you found the correct cables, mark them.
Then test what cables carries the audio signal to the speakers, you can do this by using a AA battery and connecting it to the cables for a short time, the speaker would make noise, label the cables as R or L.
The connections in the PIONEER's plug are:
RED: Accesory (This is powered when the key is in ACC position only)
YELLOW: Back-up (This is ALWAYS powered from the battery to keep the clock and other settings)
White / striped white: Speaker (FRONT R or L)
Gray / Striped gray: Speaker (FRONT R or L)
Purple / striped purple: Speaker (REAR R or L)
Green / striped green: Speaker (REAR R or L)
Blue: REMOTE (Don't connect)
All striped cables are the minus (-) pole of the speakers.
I don't remember what color are for R or L speakers but i know what are front or rear ones, the installation manual can tell you the correct wiring or you can use a test CD, or the balance/fader controls when everything are connected.

My hp speakers wont work


Sample testing is usually a firmware built into the monitor amplifier ie the monitor is testing itself. you problem possibly lies with the computer sound system. Tell me more about this. Is it an 'On-board' sound card or separate PCI card. You can determine this by looking at the back of the computer- if all the connectors - sound- PS2 and USB are in the same panel - then it is an on-board system. If the sound is separate in one of the card position then it is a PCI card. The possibility is the sound system needs setting up- check your computer paperwork/manual and utilities disk for Audio drivers. Come back with some answers

Right speaker doesn't work


I had this very same problem and I had my system for about 2 weeks. I have seen a lot of similar posts on this site so it seems that this problems happens a lot. For some reason my right speaker just stopped working so i came to this site for help. I looked at alot of posts and nothing fixed the problem. when i switched the right speaker to the left input it started to work so I knew the speakers were fine. So i finally decided to unplug everything and restart my laptop. Once my laptop rebooted I plugged the sub back into the wall after about a minute of it being not plugged in. Then I plugged all the the wires and volume control back into the sub and turned the switch back on. Make sure the volume control is down when you plug everything back in. Then plug the wire into the device, which in my case was a laptop, and start to play some tunes. Right away everything was working perfectly fine again and no problems ever since...for me atleast.

HOPE THIS HELPS
