Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Both speakers have sound, but some of it will not play.

All of a sudden one of my speakers stopped working. I found the "leave the jack slighly off" solution, but when I listen to songs that have two separate guitars playing (for example) one of the guitars will sound very very faint, or not sound at all on either speaker...I checked all the levels on my system so I'm pretty sure it's not the computer's settings. This happened from one day to the next.

-thanks in advance to whomever helps me with this.

You have connector problems- probably bad/bent/worn "jacks" in the speakers or they may be dirty (oxidation, etc) or fatigued. If you can get to the Jack on the inside of the speaker make sure it is making good contact with the plug. Clean the surfaces using alcohol on a Q tip or cloth. Many of these type speakers are not serviceable.

Suddenly no sound from speakers


First, we must determine if the problem is with the speakers themselves, or with hardware or software of the computer. Try plugging a set of headphones into the audio out jack of your system (often times, this will be a green colored jack). Play sound on the computer while listening to the headphones, can you hear the sound? If so, the problem is with the speakers, otherwise, you need to troubleshoot software/hardware of the system. Another method would be to try plugging these speakers into the headphone jack on an mp3 player, mobile cd player, stereo, or similar device. Aside from the system not putting out sound, the speakers could be plugged into the incorrect jack on the system (not audio out, OR not audio out on the correct device), or turned all the way down.

Hello, I have a pair of JBL Platinum Series speakers linked to my PC, which are just a few months old. They were working well, but they have stopped working. Although the green light comes on when I turn...


Hi Lauren This is the process of elimination which i would follow in a similar situation: -check cable going from computer to speakers, make sure both ends are plugged in correctly; -ensure sounds are not muted on your computer;
-try to play a song using another program such as windows media player. If this works, it's most likely the iplayer program which has been muted. -If none of this has helped, try plugging the speakers into a different device, such as a stereo headphones jack, ipod headphones jack, even a TV headphones jack. If the speakers still do not work, they are probably no good.
Hope this helps, Benji

Z10 USB connection does not work


My symptoms were that the speakers stopped working all of a sudden. Display showed power but gave no access to volume adjustment and did not play sounds.

I read a vague comment by another poster and it worked!
They said to unplug it from the power plug and leave it overnight before replugging it in...... at first I dismissed this, and tried everything else to no resolution. I was ready to return the speakers but decided to unplug it and see... Bingo********! in the morning

Z-10 is now back in action.

No sound


I've had my speakers for about a year now and all of a sudden they just stopped playing music/sound. I can still hear that 'fuzz' if I put either speaker up to my ear. Everything lights up properly but nothing is being played.
