Question about HP Compaq JBL Pro (401508-001) Computer Speakers

2 Answers

One speaker sucks.

Most of the time only one speaker plays, while the other doesn't or very poorly. I usually have to slam it onto my desk and only half the time that works.

Once every six months or so I get a similar problem. This is how I solve it:

1. I open the Sound Manager,
2. check an option like surround or dolby or theatre sound or something similar.
3. Click Aplly,
4. then uncheck the same option,
5. click OK and I get the sound back in the both speakers - it's some soft problem.

This is either a bad cable or loose soldering. Inspect for physicaly damage and either replace the cables or the speakers all together.

Panasonic RR-930 does not backspace with or without pedal. It engages the mechanism but appears stuck when tape is inserted. Runs fine without tape in deck.

The ancient tape is junk. Buy a new one. You might also try slamming the old tape against a wall or desk to loosen up the tape layers. Then FF and RW all the way.

Desk keeps losing internet connection playing World Golf Tour golf game

well you might just have poor internet connection. and the reason why it only crashes when connected to that program is because it probably sucks up more bandwidth(the amount of data needed to process a task) than most programs on your computer. and if your modem has a low bandwidth, it cannot handle large processes of data. to test if its your connection open up a browser, go to youtube, and play a random video, repeat this process 5-10 times in new windows each time. if all the videos run fine without lots of delay then it is the applications, but if it takes a long time to load each video it is a problem with your modem and you should consider contacting your provider for upgrading it.

If it is a problem with the application try re-installing the application

The PLAY function of my Cassette desk doesn't work anymore

Well two things have to happen to make tape move in a cassette deck. One is the Capstan shaft has to rotate and that is usually a belt link to a motor through a pulley. The second thing is you must have take-up torque. If the tape moves but the take-up reel does not pull it onto the take-up reel then you either have a eaten tape or the deck will shut off. in your complaint it could be any of these items- maybe a bad Idler from the reel motor or the capstan belt is old and stretched.

Switches direction without reason

It thinks it has reached the end of the tape and should play the other side.

Here's what to do: take the cassette and slam it (gently) against a wall or desk. Turn it over and do it again. This loosens up the tape pack.

Then fast forward the tape all the way to the end and then rewind it all the way to the other end.

Before you play the tape make sure the cassette screws are tight. And make sure your tape heads are clean .

What order do I install the carb boots to help reinstall the dual carbs?

It's easiest to first gook up the outside of the carbs with axle grease(don't use too much so it doesn't get sucked into the cylinders later) and then grab it with both hands sitting on the bike and place the bottoms of both carbs in the manifold and then lift up to make it even and slowly slide them into the right place then slam them in pretty hard. After that, put the boots on the airbox end first, this makes it so much easier, after that put a little grease on the inside part of the boot that goes over the carb and push the airbox forward with the boots attached onto the carb.

When I connect my headhphone to monitor doesn`t work?

If you mean the pale green jack on the back of the monitor, it is not a headphone jack. It is to let you connect the sound output from your computer (usually also a green jack) to a little speaker in the monitor. That speaker is better than nothing, but sound quality is poor.

Can i fix the door to my 2002 Jaguar x-type at home?

You could try adjusting the striker wich is bolted onto the B post wich is the hoop looking metal piece wich the latch catches onto. All you would bahe to do is slacken the 2 torx screws and re-position it forward slightly then re-tighten the screws.

But if the door hinge has been welded poorly then I would advise taking it to a body shop

Every time I try to play san andreas it loads half way.

Your computer isn't fit to play it. My laptop was 4 thousand dollars, and I have the top of the line cards and drivers and it does the same thing. You got to have a super super amazing laptop to play that game. Sucks but oh well, what can you do? Get it for PS2 if you can, much funner ha ha :) Rock on
