are you adjusting sound through the windows controller or the application you're playing music through? there are a few things that could affect that, there's also the actual sound setup where you can change your setup i.e. surround sound, single speaker, headphones etc
Most televisions have a setting that controls whether the TV uses its internal speakers or sends the sound to the audio out jacks for an external amplifier or speakers.
Try going through the settings menu and follow through the audio/speaker selections and confirm that the TV is set to use external speakers.
The bleep cold be just a bleep device separate from the speakers. It looks like a round piece of aluminum with a large dot of white solid past on it with a wire attached.
1st. make sure the volume is up all the way.
Then try using a headphone just to make sure the sound card is working.
If the headphones work then it should be a setting somewhere.
Sometime the switch that turns off the speakers when headphones are plugged in gets stuck, try plunging them in and unplugging them out while music is playing.
If they don't work the sound card may be blown but it is still possible it is not.
Also, try Keyboard shortcuts for mute and UN-mute.
Try going to control panel and bring up the sound app and try different options in there for mono and or what ever it has, you may find the answer there.
If the headphones work but nothing else works you can always plug external speakers in the headphone plug.
the circuit board and amplifacation supply inside the sub are blow or shorted out.thus preventing any sound. the head phone jack works only because it is a bypass feature supported by the actual computer not the surround sound unit
hook your front speaker wires up to the A side and on the front of it make sure only the A speakers are playing but leave the rear speakers plugged into the B side then hit the listen mode button and you should be rocking
to localised your problem, try to plug your speakers to other sound source like mp3 player ,stereo system. if still no sound coming from it,your problem is within the speaker system. perhaps the audio power amplifier ic inside, need to be replaced.
To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear
and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On
most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front
audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do
not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter
(discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if
your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a
surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound
card for details.
Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as
your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front
and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should
have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly
installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer
for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card,
you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an
adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type
of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase
this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your
manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround
Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a
walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone
jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over
powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers
to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman,
then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card.
Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make
sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for
