Re: Speaker problem

Hello Bmistyred
Happy Holidays
well, it is a sub problem, if you has warranty, use the RMS system, or change the sub. If has internal schematics, you can repair it, yourself, it is a resistant or some boards have a FUSE inside.

There is no sound. I have connected it to my new Toshiba laptop

Hello there,

When you plugged it into your laptop, turned it on and increase the volume, do you hear only a humming sound from the speakers? Try to plug the speaker to an mp3 player as well to test if it still doesnt give out any sound. If it still doesnt, then your speaker must have a wiring connection problem inside that needs resoldering. Here I supposed that your laptop's internal speakers is working and is able to work with other audio devices like a headset or an earphone.

It shows the speakers are on but no sound

If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)

Left speaker is not working on my 2.1 speaker system...

A few things can cause this to happen. First we should check the computer. Take a pair of headphones or other speak set and check if sound comes from both sides. If to then the computer output is correct, else the computer is channeled to output to one side.

To change sound settings, if this is windows, go to your control panel and look for sounds option. In there you can change speaker settings, change volumes. On the volume control you can balance the speaker output. center the slider to make both correct.

If sound is coming from the PC correctly with a test object you will need to check your speakers for a fade option, not many have this it is just a suggestion. If no fade option exists, make sure the plug is totally seated. Improperly seated plugs will cause only 1 channel to be outputted or none.

If all the above does not help then check the cabled leading form the computer to speakers for damage as well as checking the wire between the left and right speakers for damage. Many times the output lead from the right to he left gets damaged from stress or other things and will stop output. Wiggle and pull the wire gently in each direction if they don't physically look damaged to see if sound is produced. if it is then the wire is internally damaged or loose from the speaker.

good luck

Have external gateway speakers

First make sure your sound cards are working properly. 1) Check the master volume of your PC. Go to start menu, control panel, sounds speech and audio devices, sounds and audio devices - i) In volume tab click the speaker volume and check whether all the left, right, etc.. volumes are in medium or high. ii) In audio tab click the volume tab of sound playback and make sure that the master volume is not in mute and all the volumes are either in medium level or at 100%. After making these changes try playing any music. Even if the problem persists go and get your sound card checked in an authorised service centre.

Thanks & Regards,

Good Morning
If you set the volume up, and there is a problem with audio, I recomend,
1) reconnect your speakers and press well the conector, (green)
2) see if sound came from output connector using a headset.
3) buy new speakers.
depending on the model of your current spk. check one from creative, they have some good Spk. that work fine for years.

Compaq sound trouble

Try and change the drivers for your sound update them then see if it improves. If that dont work the only easy solution for you ie; if you dont want to get inside it and check the sound system or replace it is to buy those external speakers and use them.

Right Speaker Hit the Floor

Im sorry to say so, but the fact that speaker can still monitor volume has nothing to do with its disability to produce sound. Im not a speaker wiz, but I can think of two possible reasons for what happened: 1. something has broken inside the speaker. in this case you will have to get it fixed\replaced. 2. some disconnection accured from the hit, a wire got teared or loosed. in this case, you might get lucky. open the speaker, and search for any torn wires. if you are handy you may be able to weld, replace, etc.
