Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers

Open Question

I was geting no power light on my speakers so I bought a new power adapter on e-bay which is much smaller/lightweight, however it comes with an indicator light on it showing that it has power but am still NOT getting any power in my speakers. I pulled the eight screws fom the bottom of my speaker hoping to pull apart to check for fuse or somethin but unable to seperate the section where the silver volume controls are. am afraid to put pressure on it and break something. Any suggestions or help wud be greatly appreciated. Thanx

I believe your old sound card may be of higher quality than your new one, I had the same problem years ago what I did was this, I ran my speakers through an old dedicated dubbing cassette player out of an old kenwood stack stereo then into the computer, the cassette has a mild adjustable preamp when in record, you will have to put the deck on record the rest of the time with a blank tape- any old cassete deck will work.(thrift store) and your going to need a couple parts from radio shack. If you have the know how I suggest switching the audio cards out, drivers etc and / or seeing if you can have them both plugged in without an issue. If issue then try cassette then call and complain to the computer company for installing sub standard equipment.

computer audio output-> line in cassette->line out cassette-> line to speaker input

good luck

Your speaker volume must have reset. You have to touch the dots on the right speaker to turn up the volume to desired volume. I just remembered that on my system. Hope this helps.

Fan works fine, lights don't. Could it be the remote?

Had this happen to me and it was a hunter fan. Similar problem. Fan worked,lights went out. Took light bulbs out, lowered the light fixture. Tested power coming from the ceiling to the quick connect pins for lights. The power was good. So the Problem's in the light kit. Turns out the government requires all new fans to have certain wattage to lights, set at 190. So 3 60w bulbs or 4 40w. Inside the light kit is a limitor hooked to the black power wire coming from the quick connect,It is smaller wire and mine was pink into limitor and white coming out. Not very big. This went bad so i called Hunter, sending new light kit, but I just wired straight black to black wire bypassed that limitor and lights work fine

Loud humming sound. Blown power adapter transformer. Bought new adapter same humming

The power adapter that blew damaged the amplifier circuits inside the sub (or a damaged circuit caused the power adapter to blow)... in either case, if you have electronic skills and access to a oscilloscope, you can trace the signal on the circuit board. The suspect components to look for would be around the connectors for the power supply to the circuit board.

The adapter is becoming warm, but the speaker

The last point is the most important -- the speaker light is not glowing. That means it's not getting power, and nothing else is going to work.

If you have access to a multimeter (voltmeter) you can test the adaptor to see if it's producing the power that is on the label. That would help you figure out if the problem is the adaptor or inside the speaker.

If you bought it retail, I'd suggest taking it back. I can't say for sure where the defect is, but "I plug it in and it doesn't turn on" is a sure-fire indicaor that it's defective.

My super nintendo will not power up ,the power light doesn't come on at all even withthe new power adapter i bought yesterday. could there be a fuse in the console???

Your system is probably broken beyond what is worth it to repair.

I'm guessing the problem at this point is complicated enough that its not going to be a simple fix and would be cheaper to buy a new system.

I got mine on e-bay for cheap.

Brand new Magellan Maestro 4000 does not turn on or indicate powe

I had the same problem and I solved it by cutting a few strands of speaker wire and twisting them together and inserting them into the center of the generic car gharger end which plugs into the Maestro 4000, It seems that the 4000 has a very small center conducter on the GPS itself and by adding a few strands of speaker wire about 1/2" long into the plug before pluging it into the 4000 it allows it to makes contact with the small power inlet conductor which is smaller than most generic cigarette lighter 5vdc power cords. I did this to mine and it powered up right away. The other solution is to buy the actual car power cord from Magellan which has the proper size connecton and makes proper connection all the time.

Compaq JBL Platinum Series speakers

Make sure that you got 12v 1.0 A adapter. Not .01 A. They have one at atrix DVCPA1AA power adapter-12v 1.0 A. you should not need drivers for speakers. Make sure you got it pluged into right port if you got the adapter. Also make sure under control panel under sound that you got it setup for two speakers.
