JBL Creature 2.1 Left Speaker not working

Basically I have just bought JBL creature 2.1 speakers and the subwoofer is fine, and so is the right speaker but the left speaker is not working? The light doesn't come on the left speaker but it does on the right and when I test the sound the left and right speaker sound both come out of the right.

I went back to the Apple Store and I got new ones and the same problem has happened. I even connected it to my friends laptop and it's still not working (the same problem, just subwoofer and right speaker working and playing)

Anyone who can help?

    I have the good ol JBL invaders. But the speaker on the left is not working as loud as it should. If I put the volume full up, and I put my finger on it, I can hear it a little :). The light is still on. The right speaker and the Subwoofer is fine. Any hints what I could do about the malfunctioning speaker? txs

Hiya

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...

I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).

This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.

Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)

    Thanks to the guy that noted the triangular shape of the left speaker cable's rubber jack casing.

    It's odd that I've fixed it many times before over the 5 years I've owned these speakers, but without really knowing how I did it.

    My brother was chucking his speakers away because he thought they were broken. I took them on, took them apart, didn't notice anything. Then googled it and realised I wasn't pushing left speaker in properly!! Thank you!

Just moved and was disappointed to find that they my Creature speakers don't work from my MacBook Pro . Also don't work from ipod so it seems like a speaker issue? They have worked before on both...


It must be a power adapator problem. Most of the power adaptors do not have a indicator to show you if its working. Is the power indicator on the subwoofer module working if not I am right about the adaptor.

How do the wires go into the back of the creature?


First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.


JBL Creature 2 are a computer speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.


Hope this helps

JBL Creature Speakers have very low volume


I had the same problem. Then I read about the volume controls on the right speaker. They are silver buttons for me on the front bottom left and right of the speaker. Now they play really loud!
