    Me too - never had a problem with the speakers, brought them to the US from Europe, and then the satellite speakers stopped illuminating and no sound is produced at all.

    They were working fine and I loved the sound but one day I turned them on and after a few minutes the went silent. Power light on the woofer is on so the power supply seems to be fine but no lights on the sats, no sound anywhere. YES my power cords are pushed in all the way. Any other suggestions???

    Speaker will not turn on, even though the JBL insignia lights up, but no other functions work either.

Make sure the triangles on the plugs are lined up when you push in the plugs!

Its not a problem, but all you need to do is push the pins at the back a little more...I know it feels like pins are all the way in, but they really aren't.

Push them in further...i thought mine were in all the way too until I read this post. After forcing them in harder than one would expect to have to the lights went on and the problem is history.

JBL CREATURE II soundspeakers are dead without power


When the power to the system was applied to the speakers before you realized the cables were chewed, you blew some components in the power boards to the speakers. You could look to see if there are replaceable fuses. Otherwise a trip to the repair shop or new speakers.

How do the wires go into the back of the creature?


First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.


JBL Creature 2 are a computer speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.


Hope this helps

JBL Creature 2.1 Left Speaker not working


Hiya

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...

I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).

This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.

Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)
