Question about JBL Duet Speakers, White Computer Speakers

Speakers not working

I have a pair of JBL white duet speakers that suddenly stopped playing in the middle of a song. Is it the AC adapter? That's the only thing I can think of. If so can I open it and fix it? If not where can I get a new one (JBL doesn't sell them)? Thanks for your time Pete

Re: Speakers not working

If you have another computer or a friend, test them on his/her computer. Try this, as its fixed such a problem for me in the past. Start>All Programs>Accessories>Entertainment>Volume Control Then check the ticked/unticked boxes

The speakers quit working/what do I do?

Make sure that it is the speakers that stopped working by unplugging them from your computer (or whatever you have them plugged into), and plugging headphones into the same jack that the speakers were plugged into.If the headphones work, you have confirmed that the problem is with the speakers. If the speakers use an AC adapter (black plastic cubical thing that plugs into the wall), then you might try getting a replacement AC adapter with the same output (AC or DC), voltage, polarity (which side is positive, and which is negative), and connector. If the speakers plugged into a USB port for power, your USB port may have turned itself off. In that case, reboot the computer to see if the USB port will turn back on.
If none of this works, you have to buy new speakers.

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

I have a pair of JBL Duet speakers and 1 doesn't work unless the volume is maxed out on the other.

mcdevito75 here, Try to increase the volume from your keyboard, Then adjust the volume at the speakers, there should be only 1 volume control on 1 speaker to control them both, also check your connections at both speakers.

Just wondering what the power supply output JBL Media 3 Speakers

I have a pair of Media 3 JBL computer speakers. I am using a generic 12V DC adapter rated at 1000mA with a positive tip polarity, and it works fine.

What is the dc input for JBL Media 100

They run @ 12 volts 850mA. So an adapter with center pin positive at around 1A(1000mA) would give it enough "headroom". This means it would run cooler and last you longer. Amperage consumption is determined by the power it is producing, how loud you are playing the setup.

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

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.

Video upload....

well, the connector that comes from the 2nd speaker goes into the speaker port in the back of the first speaker.

The wierd cord possibly fits into the 12v dc slot in the back.. and the other end would go to a power adapter..

Seems you are missing a power adapter,, like you said earlyer.

Basically you would need a standard power adapter which fits into the speaker.

You could get some universal power adapter for it like


something to this direction

If you want to make sure you get the right kind of power apdater
Try contacting jbl directly

I was looking around ebay, found this

Theres the power adapter in the middle, I think the odd cord goes to the back of the first speaker and the other end would go to a power adapter.. try contacting jbl they should be able to get you what you need.

Seems you have everything else you need except for the power adapter.
