You say that the fault lies in the sub-woofer speaker....

You will need to remove the back panel of the speaker box and make a visual examinatiojh of the contents there just may be an overload fuse there that you can replace your self...there may be a broken wire if the Sub-Woofer has been dropped...

There may be a capacitor or choke that has come loose from its mounting and in falling broken a wire,,,but please have a good look to see whats gone wrong inside the sub-woofer cabinet.

If you like you could take the backs of both the right and left
sub-woofer speaker boxes then visually compare the good one with the faulty one so you can see if there is any physical difference on the faulty one...if they both look the same then you willl need to do some testing with a multimeter set to Ohms to see where the break in continuity lies...just compare readings between the good one and the faulty one to find the fault..

Cheers From YUBEUT..

I have a CD Stereo system SA-AK17, 120V, 145W, without speaker. I provided 2 speaker with the brand of Technics, input 200W(.music), 100W(DIN) each speaker. I bought Audio wire and connect speakers...

Some stereo system have the ability to switch off the speakers when playing via headphones. In others the headphone socket itself does the switching. However headphone sockets can become faulty and when the headphone plug is removed it doesn't restore sound to the speakers. It's very easy to fix this, with a check that the contacts are not bent out of place. Or you can rewire a new headphone socket, making a note of the wire connections before you replace it.
Sometimes it is quite difficult to get the speaker cable to make a good contact with the speaker sockets. You should check that they are making contact.
To test any loudspeaker just connect a 1.5 battery for a short time across the disconnected speaker. If working the speaker will pop!
As the sound is going to the headphones the amp seems to be OK and one of the above options should correct the problem.

I had the same issue. Its hardware related due to no good contact between the phone and your tiny speaker.
To fix it no too hard.
1) Open up your Samsung infuse case directions here video

3) With cover off locate 2 brass/bronze tabs that connect the phone to the speaker.
4) Slightly lift these tabs make sure not to far to brake off (1 mm)
5) Put back the cover and phone speaker should work fine
I hope this helps.

Speakers not working. message about no audio devices are installed. was fine, then this ****. and don't give my email address to any companies sending me emails 5 times a day

Don't have your email, but try restoring your pc back to the last save point. If that fixes it, good. If not you have sound card issues. You could try to reinstall drives after restore as well.

The Graphic Equalizer pattern control is not working correctly - I can hardly hear the vocal on my CD's when playing even though I've selected vocal. Vocals are outplayed by background music.

That sounds more like a polarity, or phase problem. Make sure your speakers are hooked up correctly, with the correct colors going to (+) positive, and (-) negative. Make sure your rca connection are correct, and that every connection has a left and a right. No stereo-to-mono adapters.

Is setting to "vocal" an eq selection, or a "dolby" stereo selection?

Are you using a dolby surround stereo receiver with left, right, center, rear, etc.?? If so, try turning off any effects, or anything that would send signal to the center speaker.

Lastly, depending on what the source of your music is, it is possible if your connections or receiver settings are not correct...that the music upon playback will be out of polarity, meaning the vocal portion will cancel out. Combining left and right signal together can sometimes do this as well.
