Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Channels I just realized that both of my speakers are producing sound from the same channel (the right channel). When I turn the balance all the way to the left there is no sound whatsoever. How can I correct this? I remember having trouble when I initially set the speakers up producing sound at all. Is there a connection sequence that I am failing to execute properly? I have lost the procedure, so I can't remember. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: channels

You've camped the speakers onto the right channel only. While the balance is on the left unhook one of your speakers and connect to the other channel it will come on the now you should have balanced speakers. Can you come back and tell me if that helped.

Left speaker is not working on my 2.1 speaker system...

A few things can cause this to happen. First we should check the computer. Take a pair of headphones or other speak set and check if sound comes from both sides. If to then the computer output is correct, else the computer is channeled to output to one side.

To change sound settings, if this is windows, go to your control panel and look for sounds option. In there you can change speaker settings, change volumes. On the volume control you can balance the speaker output. center the slider to make both correct.

If sound is coming from the PC correctly with a test object you will need to check your speakers for a fade option, not many have this it is just a suggestion. If no fade option exists, make sure the plug is totally seated. Improperly seated plugs will cause only 1 channel to be outputted or none.

If all the above does not help then check the cabled leading form the computer to speakers for damage as well as checking the wire between the left and right speakers for damage. Many times the output lead from the right to he left gets damaged from stress or other things and will stop output. Wiggle and pull the wire gently in each direction if they don't physically look damaged to see if sound is produced. if it is then the wire is internally damaged or loose from the speaker.

good luck

Left channel will not play

Firstly try swopping over the left speaker to the right channel . If still no sound then either the speaker cable will have a break in it & need replaced or the actual speaker will be open circuit. If you get sound from the speaker on this channel then the the speaker is ok. Check your PC's audio set up... Go to Control Panel/ Sounds & Audio devices/ In volume Tab, click in Device volume area... Advanced & then check the Balance settings are not set to one end.

I have a x-540 speaker system I brought today. Do I need a sound card to make it work with my pc. I hook it up/no sound.

A stereo computer system with resources to produce and record surround sound channels. Such surround sound channels are played or recorded using an audio card added to the computer system, which audio card controls additional speakers and/or microphones. Software for redirecting instructions from existing stereo application programs and sending these instructions to the existing audio device driver and the additional audio device driver is needed. Resources for processing the digital audio data for either extracting surround sound channels from two channel data provided by the application, or for encoding two sets of two channel audio data recorded by the two audio cards is also needed

Speaker problems

Hi, since the speakers themselves are ok, try checking the BABY PHONE PLUG that goes to the music/sound source. It is normally three (3) in 1 stud. The metal topmost would go to one channel, followed by a blak plastic ring then another metal band which goes to the other channel, followed by another black plastic ring and the final metal part which is the ground. With power on to the Z-5300, try touching the ends of the baby phone plug. Touching the top and 2nd metal part should produce a sound on either of the left or right. No sound (but spkrs good) it is possible that the left channel (front and rear) of the amplifier is dead. Hope this helps.Regrads.

Both right speakers not working

Try to interchange the connections of left channel and the right channel. If there is sound now in the right channel and no sound in the left channel it means that you have problem in the sound card. Otherwise if the problem remains the same you have a defective speaker on your right speaker system but don't forget to take a second look on your speaker wiring.

Hp speaker problem. Please help

Check the jack at the back of the computer see if it is inserted fully. if it is give it a spin between your fingers and wiggle a little to see if sound balances out. But don't forget there are several places to balance your speakers in your operating system on your computer. And what program you are using for playback. if the are self amplifing speakers unplug the jack completely out of the back of the computer. and plug in a pair of headphones and listen. If it is balanced there it is from the cable to the speakers. If it is not balanced it is the soundcard or the software. at least this will give you a place to start.
