    Same problem here, the speakers faded in & out for about two days and now I get nothing. There is no light on the centre speaker, no power, not even a pop or hum. They are no longer hooked up to the dell, but to a laptop via the adapter so it's definitely the speakers. I tried to take out the fuse & put it back, replaced it with a new one too... still nada. Has anyone fixed this problem? or if that part is fried can I replace it or do I have to buy new speakers??? :( These had such great sound.

Similar situation happened with me ... on the back of the subwoofer is a fuse,it's a little round button that actually can come out. Maybe that just popped. try pulling it out and putting it back in.

What you need is a splitter and not an adapter. Forget the colors yellow, green, black. They are not relevant. The business end of those colors occur inside the box. Dell manufactured these "bass ackwards". You need a 3-way headphone splitter and that will solve your problem. I bought a RadioShack Headphone Splitter Cable model 42-2458. Hope this helps. Just plug into headphone outlet

Replaced fuse but still not working


the speak power system may be burnt out, to check that you need to plug the speakers into a wall outlet and connect the speaker to a boombox (CD player) audio jack out. play some music on the cd player.
if still issue no sound...then check if the power cable of speaker is ok.
take it to a tech

2 Dell 5650 have no sound


the surround sound speakers plug into the rear of the computer with three plugs. an adapter comes with it to plug those three into one green plug. if you plug that green plug in, the rear and center speakers should work, although i don't know if the surround sound will work correctly but you should get sound

Dell 5650 Speakers on Gateway DX4200


the speakers should have a stereo jack on a wire which would be the out put, if it is a surround sound speaker system then it most likely will have a few wires, if your computer has only one stereo jack input then the green cable would be the one you would connect in most cases, if it has 3 or 6 then you would follow the colour on the jacks and match them up with the input on your computer. if you have done all this and doesnt work check if there is audio icon in the bottom left task bar and if you can use other speakers, if you can everthing should work, if not then check for drivers online.

No sound, cenral and rear speakers Dell 5650 speakers


the surround sound speakers connect to the computer by way of three connectors. the system should have come with an adapter that plugs all three connectors into one green connector. if you color match that green connector into the computer you should get sound out of the central and rear speakers. not sure if the surround sound will work correctly for movies, but you should get sound

Driver


there are no drivers for the speakers, you need an audio driver installed for you sound card.

http://support.dell.com

Your system will either have an on-board sound card (Sigmatel normally) or a soundblaster expansion audio card. (If the audio jacks are in an expansion slot below the video card, then you have a soundblaster.

Soundblaster drivers are found at http://www.creative.com

Not working at all


If all your connections are sound, call dell. If they can't do anything for you insist on a refund. (You have to get testy with Dell)

Dell 5650 speaker wire adapter


As I understand it, this adapter is used ONLY to adapt a standard 2-channel stereo output to the 3, 1/8" plugs of the Dell 5650 5.1 system. These 3 plugs would normally plug into the front, rear, and center/sub outputs on a computer designed to output 5.1 channel sound.

To make this clear, what this means is that the output you get from your 2-channel stereo system, using this adapter with the Dell 5650 5.1 system, will NOT be full 5.1 surround sound...it will be 2-channel stereo signals intermixed so that it plays from the 5650 system through the Dell amplifiers and speakers...nothing more.

This cannot be over-emphasized. The adapter does NOT create true 5.1 sound from a 2-channel stereo output system.

If you are hoping to get true 5.1 output from a 2-channel stereo system, you will be disappointed.

All this adapter likely does is split/mix some of the 2-channel signal into the rear channel, and split/mix some of the SAME 2-channel signal into the center-sub channel, just so you will get some output from those speakers. There may be some low-pass filtering for the sub-woofer input.

It is almost certainly a very simple passive circuit consisting of resistors, capacitors, and possibly an audio transformer or two.

Look for circuit on Do-It-Yourself electronic sites and build it yourself...or you're almost certain to be ripped-off.
