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?
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.

On the back of your computer should be an audio out jack, generally marked Green. You can get a 3.5mm jack plug to two RCA plugs. The jack plugs into the green socket and the two RCA into an Aux/CD socket of the Denon. If you have other speakers connected to that Green Socket you can get a headphone splitter socket and plug that into the green socket.
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. Regards, nicam49
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.
Hello, I believe I just figured out the solution to this problem. I was experiencing the same thing, and as I was just showing my friend the problem I noticed that the green light came on after I turned on the music on my computer.
So, after removing the headphones from the base, the green light will come on only if there is sound playing from the computer (It takes a few seconds to turn on). It seems like they should have mentioned this somewhere in the manual...
