Try a software solution- download an audie editor like Audacity. The fault sound like a malfunction in the speaker unit ,which is not servicable.

No, i don't think so, but probably you audio was disconnected
Check the sound properties on control panel.
Check back connections, the power of your speakers. (bad power supply - replace)
Check your speakers on another computer

Youtube videos

Not being able to hear the sound of forwarded videos may mean a lot of things and can happen for a lot of reasons. Here are some of them:
1. You may have muted the video from the player's control (if you notice sth like a speaker with an x on it near the video).
2. You may have to see the video with an other browser (if it is displayed at your browser) or you may need to try a different player program (if it is a file).
3. You may have problem with the sound card driver (can you listen to music or other PC sounds?).
4. You may have problems with external speakers. See their volume control or power.
5. You may have muted the sound from the control panel..
and many more unfortunately.. Please be more specific regarding which volume controls have you tried.

If you don't hear sound when playing a YouTube video, try these troubleshooting steps:
  1. Adjust the volume on your computer and speakers.
  2. Adjust the volume control located in the lower left corner of the YouTube video player.
  3. Restart your browser.
  4. Try turning up the volume for other video players (like Quicktime, Real Player, or Windows Media player).
If you still have no sound after completing the steps above, these additional tips may help:

I can't hear anything when I watch youtube. Why?

Step 1:

it could be one of 2 things. either its youtube or you.

Step 2:

YOUTUBE CHECK: go onto a video and scroll over the icon on the video that is next to the play button. scroll over it and you will see a tab that you can move for sound. if that doesnt work you can try this other way.

Step 3:

COMPUTER CHECK: first make sure you have some sort of a speaker for sound to come out of. ok. now, check to see if they are plugged in. if they are and are still not working go to the lower right hand corner of your computer screen click the tiny button that looks like a megaphone you can change the volume now. HOPE THIS HELPS!

After playing for a while, approx 15 min, the volume dies away leaving some sound but greatly reduced. It then gradually returns to normal volume after about 3 mins. Otherwise all other functions seem to...

Such a long delay and a slow return to volume is puzzling. If the return came back in say 30 seconds, I would suspect 1/2 of the V1 tube (12AX7) might have a failure of the heater. When it has failed see if this tube has TWO points of light in it. The cooling down and warm up would give a 15 second ramp up or down in volume. This tube has a path around it that would sustain a very low volume. Try swapping one of the other 12AX7's into this spot. If the sound totally goes away replace the one that was in V1 at first place and see if problem goes away.

My fisher amplifier ca-854 switches speaker channels form left to right and vice a versa. Any ideas on what could be causing this? Thanks!

well could be a few things. It could be the input source. so if you are playing a cassette, try cd or tuner and see if the same happens.
Could be dust in switches so wiggle and push the function selector controls and see if it gets any better or worse.
Could be bad speaker terminations - Try removing speaker cables, re-stripping and re connecting at both amp and speaker end.
Possible dust in the volume pottentiometer so with the power off, move volume up and down franticallly (but gently) from min to max for about 15-30 seconds) to clear out any loose particles.

If these small things should not work, please reply back with anything you've noticed from these tests and I will try and aid you some more

Basically, I've noticed a fairly faint static noise while listening to music at about 30%-40& with the Logitech z-2300's. I dont know if the problem persists when the speakers are any higher because I...

Most speakers I have owned or listened too have a faint buzz or static to them. If you are using a computer turn up the volume on the computer all the way and then you should not have to turn the volume knob on your speakers past 20% that's what i did with mine and they sound fine. If you are using something else like an i pod or something like that make sure you turn the volume on the device all the way up to ensure you don't have to turn the speakers up that high. If that's not your problem then i don't know.

Sound wont work

If sound won't work while playing videos from Youtube, it could be either of the following:
  1. The volume control of the video itself is in mute or low mode;
  2. The volume control of the headset or speaker is in low mode;
  3. The volume control of the computer itself is in mute or low mode that can be found in the task-bar sound icon; or
  4. The computer itself has no audio device installed.

On Vista 64bit version goto control panel>>Hardware and Sound.. under sound click on Manage Audio Devices>> then select your speakers by double clicking on them. In the new box that comes up goto Levels and there are slider bars for all settings - top one is Audio output. Slide this to the right. Mine was set at virtually zero when I plugged my speakers in yesterday.
