Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks Computer Speakers

Harman Kardon soundsticks do not work

My soundsticks, which I have had for approximately 4 years hav esuddenly stopped working. There is power to the sub woofer and there is a very faint basey sound. I have checked all the wire connections visibly and it sounds as if something has blown. I am not sure if it is worth trying to repair them or should I put them in the bin. It would be a shame since they are reasonable. 
Thanks, Spencer

    8 years functioning great.Now after a year or so of listening at low volume (baby in da house) the sub seems to work at half or less of its former potential. Still works but almost no base in the sound. I just plugged everything in and out for a few times, didn't dare to open it, got no result. I'm from Serbia where the spare parts for these products are as common as palm trees in Syberia. Help!

U probbaly blown an IC. U could take them to a repair shop :) but if u are in Western Europe or USA they are going to charge u extra :P
The IC itself costs around 7-8 euro, deppending on the producer.

P.S.: If u wanna throw them away u could always mail them to me :P

How can I get my Harman Kardon Soundsticks 1 to work on my PC?

The USB version of the soundsticks was specifically designed for the mac and they worked just by plugging them in and then telling the system to use them instead of the analogue outputs. Unless someone has produced drivers for Windows XP for these speakers I think that you will probably not be able to use them.

Wow, general problem here, but the most near your problem could be, power failure, or the Power adapter is bad, or a energy failure at home, time to buy a new adapter.

Soundsticks switch from Apple to PC...

No drivers needed for them to work in XP, this I know for sure. Any other operating system, I can't say with any certainty. But I would assume they would work ok in Vista as well.

When plugged into a Windows XP system, they show up in the device manager as "Harman Kardon SoundSticks" without any additional software or drivers. Hope this helps.
