Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers

1 Answer

I've tried three different sets of speakers and each time the left speaker will not work. I've also tried plugging in my headphones and my left headphone wont work. I've checked all the volume controls and nothing will work. Also, when I click the desktop speaker and check the sound on there, it beeps from my tower. And this is a little weird, but I just tried unplugging the cord from my computer, just a little, and the left speaker started to work but not the right and when I plugged it back in all the way, the right one was the only one that worked again. I really need some help with this!

Well the jack you plug in has three surfaces. So when you pulled it part way out then the left speaker part of the plug came in contact with the right speaker contact inside the jack and it worked. Speakers are good so if you have checked your volume control in Windows and checked that the balance control is centered it could be that your sound card is defective. You didn't tell me what kind of computer you have and if the sound card is built into the motherboard or if it is an add on card. I don't know if you only have the Window's sound control in Control Panel or if your card has a seperate software for configuring your card but I think the only thing that might disable the left speaker has to be the balance control in Window's sound control or the seperate software.

Sound comes through only one speaker at a time.


Is the sound on both channels on a pair of headphones? If it is suspect a faulty headphone socket, especially if the speakers are cut out when the headphone jack is inserted - normally.

Only 1 side of my dr dre detox is working


THE INTERNAL WIRE CONNECTING BOTH HEADPHONES IS BROKEN. THIS PROBABLY HAPPENED WHEN TWISTING ONE OF THE HEADPHONES TO HEAR ONLY THROUGH ONE OF THEM. TRY FEEDING EEACH HEADPHONE INDEPENDENTLY WITH ITS OWN CABLE USING ONE OF THOSE PLUGS TO SHARE MUSIC FROM SAME SOURCE.

My headphones will work but my desktop speakers will not why?


If your speakers work fine when plugged into the headphones socket on the front of the system, then there is no fault with them.
If the sound through the speakers is very low when plugged into the rear panel socket, that would suggest that you may be plugged into the line out socket rather than the speaker socket and that there is a mismatch of the impedence between the socket and speakers.
If you have three audio sockets on the rear panel, try the speakers in the second output socket (but not in the microphone socket) and see if it makes a difference.
You could try the same test using the headphones - do you still get good sound levels with the headphones when plugged in to the rear panel socket?
If neither the speakers nor headphones give good sound when plugged in to the rear panel, then you may have a problem with either the sound card if the sockets are on a separate PCI card, or with a poor connection on the cable to the socket header bracket from the motherboard pins for audio for integrated adapters.

Headphone jack not functioning properly


This is the normal way for this laptop ..leave it always with the headphones on selected in that list ..cause if the main speakers don't work well there is no point in using them ..This way you will run whatever yo will plug in ..speakers or headphones..The only setting difference in headphones and stereo out ..is that for headphones will but the speakers of the laptop when plugged in ..This way it will even help you if the speakers are making weird noises cause they are damaged ..

My tuner will not work! I've had this unit for 4 years & it's always worked perfectly. Then yesterday, the tuner stopped working. "Tuning" flashes on-screen intermittently & no...


1. Verify the source of the signal - Look for any antennas that may have been hooked up, and verify connection has not been moved or removed.
2. Test with a different output by plugging in some headphones, and recheck the volume through the headphones.
3. Check that the A/B switch for the speakers has not been moved, and that they are switched to the correct speakers.
4. Try AM and FM for any signals both with speakers and then headphones.

Good luck!

My logitech z-640 speakers arent working and i have no clue why first id like to know where to plug in the plugs in my laptop theres a geen,orange,black cord i have a microphone,headphone and some other...


The different connectors are for 5.1 surround audio, and are for different speakers with your system.
  • The green connector is for your front-right/front-left speakers
  • The black connector is for your rear-left and rear-right speakers
  • The orange plug is for your center speaker.
Most laptops do not have support for 5-speaker audio, so if you want to test each individually, you will need to plug them in one at a time and test playing sounds through them.
Hope this helps,

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working


Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)
