Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Connection my speakers

I have an old set of speakers that I want to connect. They have one jack with purple end to plug into the desktop. None of the ports on the back are purple, and I've tried plugging it into each one. No luck with any sound coming out of them. They worked fine with my old laptop and my son's former desktop (can't remember what make it was, it's now dead). Any suggestions?

You should be able to plug them into the the green jack on the back of the computer. Next go to the volume control panel, usually under start, programs, accessories, entertainment, volume control. now make sure that the master volume is all of the way up, and that the Wave, SW Synth, and CD Player are not muted. THis should work, if your computer also has an output on the front, make sure to switch the output selection to the rear, by using the software, that should be preinstalled.

Acer iconia tablet problem


Few things.
If you are talking about the built in speakers, make sure your volume is turned up. And make sure its turned up when the headphones are not plugged in. My android tablet has individual sound profiles so while I might have the sound muted when the headphones are not plugged in, if I plug them in, the volume jumps to my set level because that's where I turned the volume up to last time the headphones were plugged in. I've also had two tablets that the speakers went out completely on that to is a possibility but if you are talking about the built in speakers, check the volume levels first. You can get to them in the settings menu. Its worth noting that plugging anything into the headphone jack will "turn off" the internal speakers altogether.

If you are talking about external, plug into the jack speakers, on a tablet, you're going to need a set of powered speakers as that jack is not going to produce enough power to drive an un-amplified speaker. Make sure you are using a pair of speaks that plug into the wall such as PC speakers.

Second, if you are using powered speakers and still not getting any where, look at the jack end of your head phones and compare it to the jack end of your speakers. I know iPhones and other Apple devices have an extra connect which is why the Apple head phones all have an extra ring. My older headphones are worthless in my iPhone because they lack said extra connection. It's possible your tablet also requires the newer connection and the headphones have that while your speakers don't.

Broad answers, but I couldn't tell exactly what we were looking at based on the questions. Hope it helps, and good luck!

I am unsure what cable to use to connect the audio system to my monitor. I have a cable that has a green round connection on one end and a purple round connection on the other. Is this the right cable? ...


If your monitor has built-in speakers, then you can connect the audio
output (stereo mini plug) from your computer to the monitor. Look
at the back of your PC, there is a light green Jack: that is the Audio
Output Jack (Consult your PC user's manual for verification)
Here is what your cable should look like:

I dont know the exact way on how to connect my logitech speaker into my desktop computer. i find it hard..


You need a cable with a 2.5mm jack plug at each end. This probably came with your speaker system. Connect one plug to the speaker system, th socket will be on one of the small speakers or at the back of the bigger base unit, then connect the other plug to the computer. The connection is usually at the back of the computer but you may also have a connection at the front. On the back of the computer you should see some sockets near each other that are colored pink and green, you plug the cable into the green socket (the same applies if you have sockets at the front of your desktop)
I hope this helps with your problem. Please get back to me if you need any more information.

I have just brought a rx-v367 av reciever and have connected it to my tv/ speakers. speakers work fine when testing set up. however there is no sound coming out when connected to tv. also it keeps coming...


Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable


Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.


Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.


Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.


Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.


Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.


Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

Dell speaker connection color code needed


  • *Turn off your Dell laptop.

    *Connect speakers to the speaker control box. The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have. Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to the jacks on the back of the control box.

    *Plug an audio cable into the "Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is color-coded, it will be green.

    *Plug the other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.

    *Plug the speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power surges. *Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet.

    *Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or down after you turn your laptop on.

    *Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is coming from your speakers.


    Thanks for rating

    Good luck

    How do I connect external speakers


      Connecting Full-Size Speakers
    1. Step 1 Insert the red and white plugs on a set of RCA audio cables into the right and left audio "OUT" jacks on the back of the TV.
    2. Step 2 Connect the other ends of the cables to a free pair of audio "IN" jacks on the amplifier.
    3. Step 3 Strip 1/2 inch of insulation from the speaker wires, and connect a pair of wires to the left and right terminals on the back of each speaker using the red wire for the right audio connection and the other wire for the left.
    4. Step 4 Connect the other ends of the speaker wires to a pair of stereo speaker terminals on the back of the amplifier. The wires attach by raising spring-loaded clips on the back of the amp to reveal a hole for inserting each wire.
    5. Step 5 Set the amplifier selector to the set of audio jacks connected to the TV to enjoy stereo sound from the television.
    6. Connecting Self-Powered Speakers
    7. Step 1 Insert the RCA plugs on the Y adapter into the TV's Audio "OUT" jacks.
    8. Step 2 Connect the mini-plug on the wire attached to the right-hand self-powered speaker to the mini-plug jack on the Y adapter.
    9. Step 3 Plug in the audio cable and mini-plug from the left-hand speaker into the Audio "OUT" jack on the back of the right-hand speaker.
    10. Step 4 Connect the AC adapter to the power jack on the back of the right-hand speaker, then plug the adapter into an electrical outlet.
    11. Step 5 Switch on the external speakers and adjust the volume.

    I need a diagram showing me how to wire a 3.5mm mini jack (input)? Its for aPC Audio Cable.... seems there are no experts who can help as its not in the "products".... plz forward this to someone who might...


    A any jack/plug it is always wired the same, there are only 2 wires, + Plus, and - Negative, ETH, GND. The Minus, GND, ETH, always, logically, goes to the or Negative or "Case" ETH, Gnd, all mean the same. Now the + Positive is always Plus,. If the connection is for a Coaxial Cable then, the inner core is Plus +, and the Shield is always - Negative, Gnd, Earth. All Jacks and Plugs wire the same. With a Phono MONO Phono Jack, the "Bulb End" is always Positive, the Case or Outer is - Negative. IF it is a Stereo Plug/Jack there is simply, Two Plus wires, and two - Negative, Eth Wires, these Two, Negatives, Earths or Contact together, and go to the Outer Connection or Negative. The Two + Plus Wires go, One to each tip connection, of the Two Positive connections, that go to the end, Bulb Tip A & Tip B, of the Stereo Jack./Plug
    For Power Connections the same is generally true, the Centre Conductor is usually Positive, while the other one is - negative, case, eth gnd.

    I Do Not Know How To Connect Boston Micromedia To My Computer


    The Boston Micromedia speaker set comes with two speakers (right and left),a subwoofer, and a complete set of cables to connect everything up.

    1.) Position the speakers. The two small speakers typically are spaced equal distance apart on a desk/table top to the benefit of the listener. The sub-woofer typically rests under the surface, on the floor for example.

    .) Connect the cable sets to the back of the two small speakers along with the speaker feet.
    Note: the small speaker with the volume control knob will have three cables coming from it. This will be the "right" speaker. The other speaker will have a single cable and will be the "left" speaker.

    2.) The cable ends will be color coded to match the jackson the sub-woofer. Match up the color coded cables to the respective colors on the subwoofer as follows:

    (a) White cable end (left speaker) to white jack on sub-woofer.
    (b) Red cable end (right speaker) to red jack
    (c) Purple cable end (input) to the purple jack
    (d) Green cable end (computer out) to the computer's microphone output jack.

    Note: if any of the cables are too short to reach their jacks for whatever reason, an extender cable with a female and male end can be purchased relatively inexpensively to make up the difference in distance.

    3.) Power up the system (plug in power cables to the sub-woofer and wall), play some music, and adjust the sub-woofer sound (control knob) to suit listening pleasure.

    A nice little set of speakers, I had mine for some years now and continue to enjoy them. Good luck!
