Question about Dell WL6000 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

System test? Hi - my speakers have JUST today started what seems like a system test. The center bar speaker sounds a loud piercing note, then the left one, then the right one, sometimes even the woofer makes a lower note. And it doesn't seem like the back speaker is even working anymore. Then it stops for a few minutes, maybe even a few hours, then will out of the blue start up again. This is driving me and my coworkers absolutely nuts. The only way I can stop it is to turn the sound off completely. HELP, please! This computer's only about a year old, and I've rebooted, turned off the speakers, etc. Still with the same problem. Any ideas?

Hi we can only get audio and background sound on our system but no voices we have checked all wiring and it seems fine it also seems the center speaker is not working as when we tried it with the wiring...


Not naming the product puts a damper on our assistance. Have you looked at the manual? Dialog is mainly on the center channel. All mutichannel HTS's have test tones to verify and adjust speaker function and levels. Make sure all speakers work before assessing the overall sound.

Yamaha RX-V365 Receiver when I hook up my center channel it is not audible at all. The R and L speakers work fine when they were located in the FRONT A and FRONT B terminals, but when I moved everything to...


With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel.
Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.

If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver.
- Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK).
- Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).

REAR AND CENTER SPEAKERS WILL NOT PLAY


rear and center speakers will not play...................are you in the 5.1 channel input, or one of the others? either way, start by making sure that your center channel is set for normal mode (instead of a wide or a phantom mode) this silly setting can cause all kinds of trouble shooting nightmares especially particular to the 5.1 input setting. best reccommended to select the 5.1 input option and do a "t.test" on the system to ensure that all speakers are indeed wired and properly recieving some signal..... the rest will flow from there..... I have also noticed that in particular sound modes, the system is extremely finicky about the connections..... if you are using the 5.1 option, you need to be sure that something is plugged into the inputs on the back (regardless if they are connected to anything) the system seems to prefer when all ports are filled. hope this helps..... i realize that it has been a while since this question has been posted, but let me assure you, that some of us are still rockin those sava systems..... still by today's comparison, it is difficult to beat the sound quality and oh my the bass!!

My jvc rx-6010v is OVERLOADING?


The very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (JVC - and others - say SIX ohms, but 8 is the "standard" you should use.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: The internal overload protection system you mention is designed to help prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized JVC service center must do this. Note, though, that if you have attempted to "cheat" the system several times, damage CAN be done that requires servicing.] But, before you take the unit in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!
