Deffective Speakers???? For sometime my spealers have not worked. I finally sat down to look at he problem and found a simple solution. The speaker was not connected to the power. When I fixed that, it starting with a loud hum. As I continued to diagonse the problem through the control panel, smoke started coming out of the speaker connected to the power. I disconnected it from the computer and the power. I have speaker model # SP08A11, Realtek, AC'97 audio. Any ideas?? I guess I need new speakers. Please respond. Thanks.

No need to buy a new speaker,
Inside the speaker box there is one TRANSFORMAR with 4 or 2 Diods & capasitor will be there that will connected to your Power cord & another line will go to Speaker ,

smoke has came from the transformar,
If you able to replace that your speaker will start work fine

Hi My speakers are acting up. Sometimes sound comes out sometimes it doesnt. Sometimes only sound comes out of the sub but theres no sound coming from the speakers. So i hear only bass. When i try...

if you are having problems with your sound
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer

Speaker connection out no sound

GREEN - "line out" --> speakers with their own amplifier to boost the sound-level

BLUE - "line in" --> connect to "L/R audio output" from a cassette player

RED - "microphone input" --> microphone

The problem that I found with the mms 171 is the sound control function knob. When I took the component apart and took a closer look it appears the unit may have over heated a bit, I found some discoloration on the circuit board. When after I played with the reluctor wheel a bit it started to work again. I'm thinking what is going on is the unit heats up and warps the metal brush and it doesn't make contact any more. A simple fix is to take apart the knob a gently push the brush back down on to the circuit board (see picture)"><a href=";current=DSCN1604.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Buzzing sound out of one of the little satellite speakers, but not the other one...

Could be one of two things.
The amplifier in the main speaker unit is deffective on one channel or the sound board in you computer has a fault. Change speaker system to rule out the computer.

Dell a215 computer speakers can't get sound but the green power light is on

Well i sometimes go through alot of troubleshooting just to find its the most simple thing in the end.

Start at the source. Check if the green audio cable is plugged into the correct audio jack on the pc. Colours match up. (green with green)
And if that doest work check that the Pc isnt on mute.

To check this, there is a icon of a speaker on the task bar on the bottom right of the screen.

And if all this has been done and u still have no sound, plugg the speakers into a ipod or a similar device to see that the speakers actually do work. turn the volume up and down as well.

Hope this helps :)

No sound

This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).

  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.

  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.

  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.

  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.

found them at last - they do exist!,CRID=2173,CONTENTID=9817 try this next page (near the bottom):**&p_li=&p_topview=1 It appears that there is no associated software specifically for these speakers, they are a simple jack connection type - if they work on your walkman, but not on your pc then: the jack is either plugged into the wrong hole,or the volume is down in windows or in the application you are trying to hear or both (or on any special non-windows soundcard software).(ask again if you are unsure how to check this). Make sure your soundcard works by plugging in some headphones or speakers you know work. the only other thing i can think of worth checking is if you have used the headphone jack in the front of the speakers - this will cut the sound to the speakers by way of a small spring contact - sometimes this can get stuck open, but obviously not if they work on your walkman. maybe a bit of dirt got in there - just plug another jack in a couple of times to check. Also check if the volume control works fine when plugged in your walkman. Hope this gets you sounds :)
