Re: Sound Shut Off

Hello, there, well, it is a real problem but if you got warranty, use it, go ahead and change for a new pair of Speakers, or check connections, and the mixer, if all is up, and nothing on mute.
hope you can fix that!

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.

Speakers used to work fine and now don't. Sometimes you get just a bit of sound and then it stops. The regular sound on computer works and I've checked all volume settings.

This looks like a loose contact, probably in the speakers connector. Try gently wiggling the wire as if to "push" it into the connector. If this restores the sound, temporarily of course, you'll need to purchase a similar audio jack, cut off the old one, strip its wires and solder them into the new jack - three minutes' work if you're familiar with a hobbyist soldering iron.

Help! Only my right speaker works on my new speakers! Do I need a new sound card?

USB headphones and speakers tend to operate independently of the PC's sound card, but you can determine if your sound card is the problem by plugging the speakers into a different computer. If both speakers work on a different computer, then the problem does lie in the original computer. If so, try a different USB port, especially one that is directly on the computer, not in a usb hub.

If only one speaker works on a different computer, I would troubleshoot the cord that connects the left speaker to the right speaker. Perhaps it is damaged or not connected fully.

Hope that helps.

Hi, They suddenly stopped working, think I

Try another speaker set.
If this does not fix it, then consider the sound card if it is removeable, get a new one. If it is internal, turn off the sound and install a sound card.

New speakers do not work. Lime green cable

Re-starting the PC won't do anything for the speakers. The PC can't see them! What it can see is the sound device, card or on-board chip. If you had a previous pair of speakers working on the same connection, it seems unlikely that your sound device is to blame. Try slowly removing and re-inserting the plug a few times whilst some music is playing to see if the sound suddenly comes on. Some of these plugs are not too good at making connection! If this is unsuccessful get back and I will take you thro' proceedure to check your sound device. Ian. P.S. Take it the power light is on the speakers?

Speakers crackling and making a 'clicking' sound when volume high

The cable you are using to connect to the speakers could be duff or the connectors could just be dirty.  clean the connectors and push it in and out of the socket repeadedly to ensure you have a good connection.  Or you could try a different cable.

This sounds more like a sound card issue. Go to Control Panel, System, Device Manager and check your sound card.

The speakers get plugged into the audio output jack on the back of your computer.

Sound from 4 speakers cut off..

To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
