The screw section is probably for the house speakers. ( if they are still on the other end of those screw's wiring.) If you have a working speaker on your computer you need a jumper wire or sorts. Buy, build, or make it by cutting one your speaker wires a couple feet behind the speaker and stripping an inch of insulation to get to the bare wire.
Get some music on the speaker you use for testing. Cut the wire and remove an inch insulation from from the cut end coming from the computer. (you test and learn how to do this - hook it back up to the speaker wire. See if you made work again.)NOW THEN! Take the jumper wire ( there are at least two.) and start touching it to any of those two screws. If your computer was and still playing music after you cut the speaker wire or inserted a test plug with speaker wire - you will be able to locate speakers connected to that site.





This p in to that live speaker output has a lead out with 2-3 bare wires on the end to connect to the on the on the other end have the two pieces of wire with a speaker disconnected. to touch to those

Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using. My answer can therefore only be general rather than specific to your operating system.

The Video Camera you tried to install probably has an in-built microphone. Connecting this is may have changed the default settings for your audio devices.

You have a number of options for fixing this problem.

SYSTEM RESTORE
Start > All programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > Restore my computer to an earlier time > selected a highlighted date in the calendar and an Event in the schedule before the date you tried to install the video camera > restore > restart the computer (you should hear the windows logon on tones if you are using a windows operating system) > (My) Music > Sample Music > double click on any track to test the sound playback.

AUDIO SETTINGS
Start > Control Panel > Audio devices > Audio (Playback Devices) > Set Defaults (set the Speakers to be the Default Playback devices > apply > ok > restatrt computer > (My) Music > Sample Music > double click on any track to test the sound playback.


AUDIO/SOUND DRIVERS
Reinstalling the Audio/Sound Drivers would also probably resolve the problem by restoring your Default Audio settings, if you have the Driver CD for your Laptop or Desktop Motherboard > install Audio/Sound Driver > restart computer > (My) Music > Sample Music > double click on any track to test the sound playback.

I cannot direct you to a driver download site, because you have given no information about your computer.

Cant transfer music files from card to phone or find them.


I had the same problem and realised that you have to copy the file from the music section on your external memory to the sounds section. Firstly I sent an album to my memory card via windows media player and it went to the music section. My phone recongnised it was there on the external memory but not when I tried to play it through the mp3. I read an earlier message and it mentioned that the music needs to go into the sounds file so I copied it to that file and hey presto, I have music on my external memory that actually plays lol

Sound card?


this could be a result of the software malfunction ...i'm talking about i-tunes,if your computer plays other sounds,it clearly shows that its not a problem with the sound card which is nothing but the hardware for playing sounds in the computer.

for further clarifications revert on this page.

Cant play the music


Add music to I9

Connect your i9 to your PC via the USB cable.
On the phone select "Mass Storage Device".

On the PC you will see 2 new drives appear.
One will be the SD card. The other is the Phones internal memory.

Now just simply copy your MP3 files to the Memory card folder "My Music".
Do not use the phones internal memory as it just is not big enough.


The Audio player will only play music from a folder called "My Music" or "MP3"
depending on which firmware version you have on your i9. If one doesn't work try naming it the other!
Also make sure you are selecting the right storage area in the Audio player options, either the phone
or the memory card, because there can be identical music folders on both, and if you don't choose the
correct storage location, your music files still won't show in the Audio player!
Make sure the audio file is in a format the i9 can play. Known music file types are mp3, wav, amr, m4a, & mp4.
DO NOT place music in sub folders within either of the My Music or MP3 main folders, the Audio player
will not find them unless the music files are directly within the proper My Music or MP3 folders!

Every time you add new music to your i9 you will need to refresh the List in order for the audio
player to see all the newly added songs. To do this open the player. Tap "List" at the bottom of
the screen. Tap "Options". Tap "Refresh list". You can also go into the audio player settings &
turn ON the "List auto gen." option. If the option is ON, then after you add new music, the new
music should be added to the entire list of music already showing. If you have problems with the
music list showing up empty, or new music you have just added not showing up in the current list
of songs, then try turning OFF the List auto gen option and refresh the list manually again by using
the Refresh list option as described earlier. Manually refreshing the music list must be done every
time you add new music files to the phone if the List auto gen option is OFF.

You get to the List auto gen option by two ways with the Audio player open and onscreen
for most i9 firmware (some firmware might not have it, or may be in another area);

1.) Tap the little wrench icon to the far right on the black option panel,
then scroll down to the List auto gen. option!

2.) Tap the List option at the bottom of the screen, tap the Options button
at the bottom of the
screen, tap the Settings button, scroll down to List auto gen.

When i play music loud the sound cuts out

No sound from speakers


Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work.
TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones.
The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones.
If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged.
If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open.
Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged.
It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.

Speakers All Cut out Including Sub When Music is Played Loud


UNPLUG THE GREEN WIRE FROM THE COMPUTER AND PLUG IT INTO A CD PLAYER IF IT WORKS BETTER ON A CD PLAYER THAN THE COMPUTER IT SELF THERE MAYBE A PROBLEM WITH THE SOUND CARD AND ALSO TRY THESE STEPS I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU I AM SURE ONE OF THEM WILL WORK.

1. Please ensure that the all the connections between the satellite speakers and the subwoofer are firmly connected.
2. Next, please connect the green colored 3.5mm audio jack to another audio device such as an iPod or an MP3 player.
3. Ensure that the SoundTouch remote control is firmly connected to the back of the subwoofer.
4. Connect the power cord from the subwoofer and connect it to another single power outlet in your house. If you have an automated voltage regulator (AVR), please connect the power cord through the AVR instead of connecting it directly to a power outlet in your house.
5. Power up the speaker system and check whether the power button on the SoundTouch remote control will light up.
6. Turn on the Matrix Mode ON. This option is on the SoundTouch remote control. This is to ensure all speakers from the speaker system will produce audio that will be played from the audio device.
7. Play audio from the audio device. Check and see whether the all the speakers will produce audio being played from the audio device.
