Question about Koss HD 50 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Speakers set up properly, but no sound from PC

I have set up Koss desktop speakers properly (I think) -- they are plugged into the power outlet, plugged into each other, and plugged into the CPU of my computer.  But there is no sound at all coming out -- just silence.  Do I need a special driver for these speakers, or is there something simple I'm overlooking?


Many thanks!

Hi the sound in my speakers is reallllly low and i can't turn it up with the volume button like i used to, is there a wire missing or something ?? really annoying.. :S

click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the volume icon system select adjust volume

click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good

try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer

hope this helps you

HELP ! No/limited volume from satellite speakers

1. Make sure all wall and power outlet switches are on and that all switches for your speaker system are on. Cycle the power switch.(switch is located on the back of the subwoofer) Check power LED on left and right speakers. Is the LED on? If not, power is not getting to your speaker system. Make sure the power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet. 2. Ensure that the speaker input jack is pushed all the way into the appropriate jack. Check all the connections and secure them. 3. Check the connection to the soundcard. Make sure it is connected to the proper jack. This varies from each soundcard manufacturer. (Please refer to your soundcard manual.) 4. Your volume settings are too low or muted. Increase your volume by pressing the + key located on top of the right satellite. You can also check your volume through the volume control located in the taskbar. To mute and unmute the speakers, press the + and - controls at the same time.

the part that is for your problem
This is an indication that the satellite speakers are not plugged in all the way to the subwoofer. You will hear a slight "snap" sound if they are plugged in all the way. The inputs are color coded and shape coded (triangle and square). Make sure they are aligned properly.

Are this powered speakers connect to the same mains power socket as the computer.
If not you may be getting an earth loop which causes a humming sound.
Connect these speakers to the same power outlet, if you have not sufficient outlets use a power board.

Need program to make speaker work

Windows has a built in sound command )go to control panel and pick sound.
press play to emit a sound.
Your speakers need to be connected to the headset set output on the computer, but may not be powerful enough to drive the speakers on their own. In this case they need an amplifier.

I am getting no sounds from my speakers. Everything on the PC seems to be set correctly. The speakers do work when an Ipod is plugged into it. How can I tell if the problem is the cord going from the PC to...

I have tried everything I can think of to fix the problem, but finally gave up and called the person who I purchased it from last June. As I had been using a headset, I don't think we ever tested if the speakers worked with this PC. He is coming to look at it tomorrow. I seem to have ruled out everything except the connection ports on the PC. I hope that he can solve the problem tomorrow.

They wont give out sound there plugged into the front of the computer and in the outlet plug in BUT IT WONT WORK :( help

Be sure to plug into the "green" socket on the front of the computer, not the "pink" (microphone) or "blue" (headphone output from iPod) socket.

Try the speakers in the "green" socket on the back of the computer, to ensure that the speakers work, and the volume control is "high", and that you have not "muted" your speakers.

Some motherboards have a small "jumper" to enable/disable the front audio-output sockets.

Try the speakers when connected to the headphone-output from your iPod, to confirm that they work -- they could be quite quiet.

Need a wiring diagram for connecting KOSS HD 50 COmputer speakers

Hello there! lellya
1) you have to tell , what kind of sound card you got? on board audio? A7, or Creative Audigy? 5.1 or regular.
2) then, you have to connect one speaker to the other, one two way connector cable, for the 2 KOSS speakers.
3) another cable that goes in back of your koss and from the out of your KOSS Speakers to the input of your sound card, at back of your PC, this input is your sound card jack.
4) its supose to work like so.
good luck
