Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks Computer Speakers

1 Answer

No sound from Soundsticks

I know that there have been many similar problems to this
already posted, but none of them seem to rectify the problem.

My Soundsticks are around four years old, have worked
perfectly since then but have just stopped working. I have
tried reinstalling the driver, and using them on another
computer, adjusting the volume controls, making sure they
are not on mute, etc, but nothing fixes the problem. I doubt
whether they have blown, or been dropped, etc.

Please help!

    Harman tell me that the older USB soundsticks are no longer supported by Mac. There is no driver in later OSX editions.

First things first:

1) time to change your stick speakers.
2) if got warranty, use it, if not, have to RMS them but I just
counsel you to change for others.

I've got a dim blue flashing light from my subwoofer with Soundsticks usb. Is this a poweradapter problem or an electronic problem?

It is with its power transformer problem itself. There is a protection fuse inside, which will blow out, of any direct short circuit occurs inside the unit. when the fuse blows out, a blue light, such you describes here can be seen from it, as its body is transparent.
But, before replacing this fuse, you have to find out the exact reason for its blow out, before replacing it with an other similar one. OK.

One of the transducers in my Harman Kardon Soundsticks III is loose. How can I reattach in the tube?

HI, the best way is to use a 4 1/2" long nose plier. 1. Insert the plier in to the center hole of the satellite's transducer that has come loose (small round speaker that comes in a set of four inside the clear tube) 2. Gently pull until the transducer is in position (edges aligned, wires not tangled in the rear) 3. Give a thorough pull until the transducer is flush against the tube housing (make sure not to clasp the point on the transducer's grill to roughly inorder to minimize damage to the surface) 4. Enjoy P.S. I went to the hardware store and purchased the pliers for $3.99 if you don't already have a pair handy.

I purchased a set of Harman Kardon Soundsticks however they light up but not sound - can you please advise how best to get these fixed. I tried to get help from apple but they pretty much sent me on my way...

I was just given soundsticks speakers with no instructions, and had the same problem. On the right speaker are two buttons marked + and -. Pressing the + button raised the sound level from none to full volume. In my case it was an operator problem.

Remote codes for k2598u tv

Seeing that you haven't listed 'all' the codes that you have already used i decided to add these. Didn't know if it was 3 or 4 digit codes you needed so i posted them all. If there are codes in the 3 digit list that aren't in the 4 digit list just add a zero before the beginning and try them (that's if your using the four digit codes!)
eg. 3 digit code not on the 4 digit code list is 053 > then try 0053.

All the best,

Hughie. (codes below.)

4 digit.


3 Digit codes

Sound output only <10%

Hi there

Toward the base of one of the satellite speakers are two chrome finished plates...these are touch volume plus and minus pads! It seems that these units default to low level if not used for some time. Just try touching the + pad!

Harman Kardon soundsticks do not work

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

use a clear silicone based sealant (similar to the type used for caulking and in fish tanks) I'm guessing you used CA or superglue, and thats what melted your plastic, you're using too much also most likely.
