If connector is broken, you need to buy a new connector, but it takes a little handwork and some tools a screw driver some electric iron and solder.

u need to open subwoofer case and check for the connector is soldered in a board is 2 jack 3,5mm female connector and one red mini-DIN connector. replace the connector take a attention on soldering the connector, dont damage the board wires and pins, if the iron above 300ºC.

take a special attention on electrostatic discharge, normaly burns sensitive boards.

Speaker cable installation


1.  Check the orange multipin connector for bent or broken pins.
2.  Make you have the subwoofer plugged in to a live power outlet.
3.  Check the fuse on the circuit board inside the subwoofer.
4.  Measure the output of the subwoofer power transformer.  I think I remember it as being in the range of 12-24VAC.  Inspect the rectifier diodes for signs of overload.  measure the dc output of the diodes.  I think I remember 18VDC.  
5.  Open the right speaker and verify the on/off switch is working.
6.  New Egg sells a multitude of similar speakers in the $40 to $80 range.

Broken orange plug on right speaker going into subwoofer


Other posters to this forum have said this connector is available at Radio Shack.  If you can't find a connector here is a workaround that will do the job:

If there is a broken pin you can bypass it by cutting open the cable jacket and delicately soldering a 6 inch or so jumper onto the affected wire, and then  solder a jumper to the appropriate point inside the subwoofer. Pass the subwoofer jumper out of the case (drill a small hole) and connect it to the jumper you added to the cable.

Dell HK 395 Speaker System - Need Circuit Diagram Download


1.  Check the orange multi-pin connector the sufwoofer for a broken or bent pin.  If there is a broken pin you can bypass it by cutting open the cable jacket and tap onto the affected wire with a 6 inch or so jumper, and then attach a jumper to the appropriate point inside the subwoofer.  Pass the subwoofer jumper out of the case (drill a small hole) and connect it to the jumper you added to the cable.

2.  Try wiggling and rapidly rotating the volume control.   There are reports this control may become a problem as it ages.

3. I haven't been able to find a schematic.  My only recourse was to google the output amp and the 2 op-amp packages for data sheets.  They are readily on the internet.  Then I laboriously traced out the stereo paths.  I found that red and black fine tip felt pens were helpful in marking out the signal paths through the circuit boards.
