Harman Kardon speaker jack broken. What to do

Hi The jack on the end of the cable between my Harman Kardon soundsticks base unit and the back of my imacG5 broke off inside the back of the computer. I finally managed to remove the broken piece with the help of superglue and the computer works fine with other speakers. Sadly I have no jack on the end of my speaker cable though, so can't connect them. Is it possible just to splice a new cable (with a jack attached obviously) onto the cut end of the existing cable. Replacing the whole cable looks like it would be a v fiddly job, removing most of the insides of the base speaker unit. My email is joshellwood@hotmail.com. I will be so grateful for any advice.

If you know how to solder you can just remove the jack and replace it with another one, of course you can ask someone else to do it at a nearby electronics store

Is it possible to install aux 3,5 mm plugg?


Probably not, but you can buy a 3.5 mm.-to-RCA adapter cable to hook up a device with RCA (L/R) AUDIO OUT jacks (and no 3.5 mm. headphone jacks) to your Harman Kardon speakers which, I assume, have only 3.5 mm. LINE/AUX IN jacks (1 or 2).

WRONG IDEA, YOU CANNOT MAKE AN OUTPUT SOUND ON YOUR MP3 THROUGH USB, THE BEST THING THAT WORKS IS ... REPLACE YOUR HEADPHONE WITH A CORD [AUDIO JACK] AND CONNECT IT TO YOUR PC SOUND CARD THROUGH AUDIO INPUT HOLE. .. THIS REALLY WORKS... PLEASE VOTE FOR MY POSTING

Harmon kardon speaker cable


you mean the 1/8" headphone jack? yes you can rewire it, its really simple. you can get them at your local radio shack usually for a outragous price. or you can go buy a cheap set of headphones and cut the wire, strip them, and attach them together and be fine. for a harder but better solution. you could even go out by a 1/8" 10' patch cable and cut one end off. just solder the points on the inside of the speaker as well. where the original wire was located (might even make it easier to diagnose + and -).

thanks and hope this helps

Firts things First:

2) you also buy Ipod dock sound speakers, there is Ihome speakers, great ones, for less than 25.00 dollars.
3) you have to see balance on those speakers.

use a clear silicone based sealant (similar to the type used for caulking and in fish tanks) I'm guessing you used CA or superglue, and thats what melted your plastic, you're using too much also most likely.
