Green plug won't connect to audio out/headphone jack

I got the system from a friend - the green plug (the one that takes the signal out of the cpu, through the volume control and to the subwoofer) is not a standard 1/8 mini/trs connector. It is missing the tip! Is this how it is suposed to be? Is it broken? If so, What do I need to do to replace it? thnks, Ben

Re: Green plug won't connect to audio out/headphone jack

Yes.. It is a broken connector. What to do is to purchase a replacement 1/8 mini connector at an electronics supply store such as Radio Shack, cut off the broken connector and strip the ends off the wires and solder the wires onto the new connector.

Where do you plug in the connections?

The output of speakers like that are usually 1/8" jacks called 'headphone jacks'. Normally green around the base, they plug into the audio output of a computer or television (also usually green).

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, the pink one is for connecting to a microphone outlet on the pc. The green one is for connecting to the line or audio out on the pc. In order to get sound on your speakers you can forget about the pink one for now. You may have your audio connectors on the front of your pc, so take a good look there (unless your husband remembers NOT unplugging anything from the front.) You want to plug your green speaker wire/connector either to a green socket or one marked "headphone" or "output" or "out". You mention in your 2nd to last sentence a green plug? Don't worry about the shade of green; if it's a green socket that looks like a your speakers will fit into, then that'll be it. Take a closer look at it for writing or a symbol. Make sure you push the jack plug firmly in; quite often it'll go in an extra quarter-inch and make the connection. If you're really stumped, if you can take a digital picture of the pc rear panel I may be able to point it out for you. I'll be on line for 2 more hours or so.

Speaker will not work. Cannot adjust the volume.

Make sure you can see the small LED light on the speakers. If I remember correctly, those speakers are USB powered, and need to be plugged into the USB port for power, and the green audio output port for sound signal. If they are plugged in, and you cannot turn them on, you have broken speakers. If you CAN turn them on, then ensure that the audio cable is plugged into the green audio output jack (sometimes it has a headphone icon by it) and make sure your computer has not muted the audio.

How do I plug my BA745 Boston speakers into a MAC desktop with one headphone outlet in the back?

I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.

To connect your audio system to your pc do the following:

Step 1. Take the two-pronged cable that plugs into the "Out to PC" and locate the green and pink cables.

Step 2. Plug the green audio end and plug this into the Headphone (line out) jack on your computer.

Step 3. Take the pink audio end and plug this into the MIC jack on your computer.
