Well, there are three possibilities:
1st, the jack is not pushed in all the way on one or more connections.
2nd, If you have an onboard soundcard, check the sound settings. You can see them by going to Start---->All Programs---->Accessories---->Entertainment---->Volume Control. Under Volume control, click Advanced and check or uncheck the loudness. Also 3-Depth could be checked or adjusted as this too can cause a tinny sound.
3rd, If you have a sound card, you should check all the settings on it too. Check this by pressing Start---->Run, type in " dxdiag " and press enter. Once the information is collected, go to the Sound tab and check your sound card. You can also troubleshoot it here to. Any questions, dont hesitate to ask. Good luck!

Remote control does not work where can i get a new one

Hi jb,
You can call Audio Products International direct at 416-321-6211 and order one.
There is a repair centre in Toronto, Ontario that replaces remotes for the Spherex XBOX 5.1 and also does repairs. It is called "All-in-one Electronics" and it's number is 416-789-0668.
I read that the sound system you have has been discontinued, so this may not be an easy fix. Hope one of the places above can help you.

Speakers are plugged in properly but won't work

Hi Rachelle,

First of all, make sure that the sound is not accidentally muted.

If the sounds seem to play, it means that your speaker cables are faulty or have some kind of break in them. Or, your speakers or the electronics inside them developed some kind of fault.

Unplug the speakers and the speaker cables and test them on another computer. If they work fine on another computer, the problem could be your sound drivers. You could also test the sounds, using a headphone in place of the speakers. If you can hear the sounds fine with the headphones, the problem is with the speakers or the cables.

This may be less likely since the sounds seem to play, but it's still possible that your sound driver is incorrect or not the one meant for your sound card.

Start the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager) and under the "Sound, video and game controllers", see that the sound driver is listed.

Double click the item in that list that contains the word "audio device" in its name. Does Device Manager say that the device is working properly? If Device Manager says that the audio device is not working properly, or if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or if it says that the drivers are not installed for this device, install the drivers from the CDs or from the laptop manufacturer's website. However, there's an easier way to do this, as given below.

Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, after trying with the above method, sound still can't be heard, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,

Speakers all of a sudden sound hollow.

Try a restore . Check if it is coming in bios also that way . Press all the keys on the keyboard to get sounds and see if it is hollow . If it is not in the bios just update the drivers.

Jensen JMP 50 sounds like I am in a tunnel or well.

Have you powered up the speakers have you checked the sound drivers?? but remember the sound of the Jensen JMP-50s is a bit hollow and lacking in bass, and the speakers do lack bass and treble controls, which can often be found in other speakers in the same price range.

Speakers not working

ok so your speakers are alright, but you dont hear any sound when connected to the computer.
1.this might be due to a driver problem. install the correct driver for your sound system and it will start working. to check if the driver are ok, right click on my computer icon on the desktop and select properties. now go to the hardware tab an and click device manager. a yellow mark will in the sound system category will tell of a device driver or conflict problem.
2. if there is no problem as mentioned above... you can try this go to control panel. click the sound icon and check i the device is muted and volume sliders are adjusted.

hope it helps.
