Re: Speakers not working

ok so your speakers are alright, but you dont hear any sound when connected to the computer.
1.this might be due to a driver problem. install the correct driver for your sound system and it will start working. to check if the driver are ok, right click on my computer icon on the desktop and select properties. now go to the hardware tab an and click device manager. a yellow mark will in the sound system category will tell of a device driver or conflict problem.
2. if there is no problem as mentioned above... you can try this go to control panel. click the sound icon and check i the device is muted and volume sliders are adjusted.

hope it helps.

No sound to speakers

This is pretty easy to troubleshoot. First plug something else into the speakers to make sure they work. (cd player, phone, gameboy ect.). If the speakers don't come on make sure they are getting power. There should be a light on the speakers to varify they are getting power. If the speakers do work when you plugged them into something else, plug them back into the computer and make sure you are plugging them in the right portal. A common mistake is plugging them into the mic jack. Look for a small pair of head phones next to the jack on the back of the computer. Plug them in and go to your volume control on the bottom right of your computer screen. Turn that up. This should fix you problem...if not, you may have an issue with your computer.

No sound from speakers

Test the speakers by plugging them into something you know has a jack that works, like an iPod or MP3 Player. If the speakers work on that then the issue is with your computer. If it does not work it may be the speakers. Make sure all the plugs are securely connected for both power and sound. If the speakers do work make sure that the computer isn't muted. If the sound is on try using a different port like the headphone port. See if sound comes out of the speakers then. If it still isn't working you may want to try uninstalling the sound drivers and downloading the latest ones to install.

I have no sound at all from my Soundsticks. They have never been dropped, I've checked my mixer, and tried both volume buttons. Just no response. There is no visible damage anywhere and they have always...

Is the power light lit up? If not, double check the AC cord is firmly in the brick adapter, and the plug is firmly in the subwoofer with the arrow facing up. The ac cord may look like it is in tight, but not be. Unplug it and replug it to make sure. Make sure the ac cord is plugged into a good power jack. If you have the brick plugged into a surge protector or power controller,make sure they are on (not off, or 'reset') If you still don't have a light, take the brick to a electronics store (radio shack, etc) and have them check the output voltage. A replacement power brick is not that expensive, especially a third party one.

if you do have the light on, try plugging them into an MP3 player, cd player, or pretty much anything with a headphone jack. Hit the vol up (+) a few times.
If they work there, it's a computer sound issue (wrong plug, muted, headphones plugged in, etc) . If it doesn't work using an mp3 player (or equivalent), you may have a bad audio cable, or the speakers may have simply gone bad.

Make sure switch is on, try pluging it into an external MP3 player.
No sound would be coming from the speakers if nothing is playing on the computer also look at the computer volume as well as the speaker volume control.

Loud buzzing, but no sound

Sounds like they are plugged into the wrong port on your computer? You need to make sure they are plugged into the Green ringed port on your sound card.
Hope this helps

My computer tells me that my speakers are not hooked up but i looked and made sure they were and there was still no sound coming out of my speakers. what do i do to fix it?

Look at the back of the speakers and see if there is a mains power cord coming out of them, if there is make sure that the cord is plugged in properly and the power turned on.

Check all the wires on the back of the speakers, make sure they are all plugged in.

Take the speaker plug out of the compute and plug it into another device. ( mp3 player or radio)

If they work in that device, there could be a problem with the sound card in the computer.

If they don't work in the other device the speakers might be broken...

My computer speakers are making this weird noise

the First thing to test are the speakers form a different source. I believe that if you hook them up to another computer or an mp3 player you will find that the problem goes away and they work fine. (I know this by the info you gave me. THe fact that you get a large hum from the card when it is plugged in means that the output on the card has a short in it and is crossing the connections somewhere.

Solution is to have the card replaced or test it with another set of speakers just to be sure it isn't the cable.
