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?

Sounds like ye olden sound drivers are unhappy. or the sound card is taking early retirement. check drivers first..if you can't find out what sort of drivers you have, send me a note to pn4pm@yahoo.com and we'll arrange a shared screen session

My left side speaker is not working. I plugged in another speaker to the sub output (the plug not working) and got nothing, which proved to me that the speaker wire and speaker itself is not faulty. ...


could be the sound card or its driver. Check your sound properties and make sure the correct set up is selected like 2.1, 5.1 adn 7.1. Verify that the volume levels are balanced, and if nothing helps, reinstall the video driver first. If this does not resolve it, might be a good idea to test the speakers on another system just to confirm they are all ok. If that works, you may need to get a new sound card, or test the card on another computer if possible to confirm if it is at fault. Hope this would be helpful to you.

Speakers only play cd's


Please look in your Start Menu, go to Control Panel, then into Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices. See near the left, and select Advanced Volume Control. Turn up the inputs for the other sounds that you want delivered out to those speakers. Later adjust the levels a little higher if at first the mix of the sounds is not quite loud enough from one or several of the sound sources. Also in Control Panel, Sounds, you can mute out or eliminate annoying unwanted system sounds such as sounds for minimize and maximize a computer window, and the click that occurs when the computer does Complete Navigation -which it does a lot. Go into Sounds and Audio Devices, and into the Sounds tab. Select the Windows Program event such as default beep and click pick NONE from the sound chooser scroll bar that is just below. Scroll up to NONE to eliminate that sound. Now your overall sound experience will be more pleasant, without unneeded sounds playing loudly, unexpectedly.

Right speaker doesnt have sound


1ST.-The right jack could be damaged!!
Usually, there is a [+} posaitve & [-] negative input\output to speaker connections. Not all [-]neg. is ground.Sometimes the [+] pos. is grounded. [The exception to the rule is that u SEE the black wire going to ground] the reason I am letting u know this is that u can test the INSIDES of the sound system.
If u can get inside of the unit. Cut the left speaker output [+] posative from both outputs. criss\cross wires.Place left speaker output to right speaker jack[ that does not work!!] & visa versa.If the [LEFT Output] stops working after u plug in the speakers,the internal RIGHT output is damaged. NEEDS TO BE TESTED
If nothing nothing changes.The left still works & the right still does not work, then it is the jack (shorted ?, opened internally ?)

You could test the speakers on another computer or another type of player.
As for testing the speaker itself you might want to open them up and look for rust.. Moisture could have gotten inside and ruined them.
That is the best that I can do.

Rear speaker connection issue


OK, the fix for the missing rear speaker sound on the DELL WL6000 5.1 Surround Speaker System is relatively simple, just 7 simple steps (Verified by Dell at http://support2.jp.dell.com/docs/acc/P121646/multlang/srg/DAO/srg_dao.pdf..

First, power down everything. Second, disconnect the rear speaker and subwoofer from the power source and wait about 5 minutes. Third, be sure the power switch is off on subwoofer and the center speaker. Fourth, plug in the power for the subwoofer but DO NOT turn on the power yet. Fifth, plug in the rear speaker power cord. Sixth, turn on the swtich on the subwoofer (this is the start of the resync mode). Seventh, turn on the center speaker power and the system will change the rear speaker system LED from flashing blue to solid blue in 5-8 seconds. The surround system is functioning again. You may test this under sound in the Control Panel but I would prefer to use a modern music CD that has Dolby Digital Support for 5.1 sound or better. YOU WILL HEAR INSTANTLY THE SOUND DIFFERENCE WHEN THE REAR SPEAKERS ARE CONNECTED.
