Power supply specs for Dell A215 speakers?

I received a pair of these and all I can get them to do is buzz loudly. I think it's possible I may have been given the wrong size power supply. What are the specs for this particular pair? Thanks

SOURCE: I brought pair of Dell A215 speakers w/o power

There are universal power adaptors available but I don't think it is worth spending the money trying to get these speakers to work unless you are sure they are not faulty and you really REALLY like them. There are much better speakers available than these, with better sound and greater volume. These speakers are rated at a very poor 1.5 Watts each.
If oyu still want to try another power supply then check the details of what power supply is required. There should be a label on the back - I believe this model requires 12Vdc at 0.5A. You can use a power supply with an output higher than 0.5A but do not use one with less than 0.5A. The power connector or jack also needs to be the correct polarity, usually the middle pin or internal connection is the positive and the outer pin or connection is the negative. I do not know what it is on this model.

I've never worked on this model so I can't give you a definite part value or location, but you'll probably find a bad filter capacitor (or possibly more than one) in the power supply. The power supply converts the AC power line voltage to the DC (direct current) needed by the electronics. If the filter capcitors don't work, the result isn't smooth and steady, and the result is an annoying hum. You're probably hearing this.

It's possible to replace the bad capacitors, but it's not always easy. The people who make computer speakers don't often design them to be serviced, and sometimes it's a challenge getting into the power supply. But if you or someone you know with some electronic soldering skills is willing to give it a try, you might be able to bring these speakers back to normal. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Don't just randomly plug power supply's in; check and see what it needs.
It should be printed somewhere on the device how many DC volts it needs.
If it needs 9volts, get a 9volt power supply.
If you don't have a power supply the same size as it needs, order one off of Amazon, or eBay.

A215 speakers fuzzy noise


Have you got a power supply unit near the speakers (move any power source away from a speaker). Other than that then one of your cables has a short in it.

The "buzz" you hear is a power hum made by the power supply transformer. It's technically called "Lamination hum" caused by the revering of electrical current through the power supply transformer. In some cases the hum can vibrate the chassis causing other loose material to vibrate. If you can, go to your dealer and check to see if other units of this same type typically make a hum this loud, and if not, see if he can solve the problem for you.

Loud Buzzing Sound


This may be a power supply failure, and or a short in the output stage, and in the drivers for the output stage.

This is not a repair you can do at home unless you have a lot of experience in troubshooting and analysing problems in power amplifier equipment.

Dell Speaker 215 problem


Would suggest that when you plugged in the router power supply it supplied a HIGHER voltage and you have blown the speakers.
