Sound sticks II

I am not getting any sound from my speakers. They worked fine, then i unplugged them accidentally from the computer when i was hooking my printer up. I plugged them back into the computer and now there is no sound. I checked the connection from the satellites to the sub also checked power connection to sub. Sub is lit up but no sound. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Sound sticks II

My problem is fixed now. I plugged the speakers into the earphone socket. There was no immediate effect just silence. I twiddled the control on the bass unit, played with the volume controls on the sticks. Then I realised the sound was back with the external speakers not the internal ones. It was as though the Harman Kardon system was re-booting itself. Very weird.

I purchased theses speakers January, 2011. At first they worked fine. Then I started having problems getting sound out of the left speaker. The sound would return when I plugged and unplugged the speaker...

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty or
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
or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer 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 CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

I suspect you have not plugged them back into the correct socket. The plug is coloured green and therefore should go back into the green socket. you have probably plugged it back into the blue or pink sockets. Use a torch to check that is in the green one.

Hi: I have your white Creature II(?) speakers. I was using them on another computer for years and they worked fine. I have since taken them off of that computer and hooked them up to a computer in my...

Move the speakers back to the first computer, to ensure that they still work.

Make sure that the speakers are getting AC power.

Check that you have plugged them into the "line-out" (GREEN) conector on the sound-card.

Check that you have not "muted" the sound on your bedroom computer.

Move the "volume-control" slider away from "minimum".

Open Device Manager on the computer, to confirm that your audio-device is fully-loaded into Windows, with the correct device-drivers.
Having any "unknown" devices is a hint that some device-drivers have not been loaded.

Problem hooking up bose speakers

mcdevito75 here, The HP speakers that came with your computer work fine, the bose speakers work fine on your other computer, the plug on the Bose speakers is a little shorter than the HP speakers, and only the right Boss speaker is working, HMM, Check the Bose speakers, both of them for a volume control 1 of them may need adjustment on this particular computer. If that"s not it, I would speak to a Radio Shack, Staples etc.

Same problem with sound sticks

The sound sticks do not show at all in the sound preferences on two different computers.  One running 10.5.2, one 10.4.x.  I get a "disconnect pop sound when I unplug them hot.  But no sound when I connect them to AN Y of the other 9 units I have here at my office.  Is there a repair to the sticks available?  I do show a blue light within the base speaker. Help please...  Or at least make a decent replacement recommendation.
