Question about Harman Kardon HK206 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

The right speaker has no sound, but the volume knob still works on it to control the left speaker, which is working. Could it be in the wiring?

Hi, I had some speakers and the 3.5mm audio jack wire that connects them into inputs had gone funny. You had to bend it into a sweet spot to get both speakers working otherwise only the left one would...


sounds like you bent the wire so that the wiring could actually make a contact, thus your speakers would work. Sounds like the contact is now broken which is probably a solder joint. You can remove the sleeve and you will see the issue. All you should have to do is resolder the connection and you will be done.

M-audio av20 right speaker has no sound coming out of it at all...


To troubleshoot the problem start with the bit that is working - the left speaker.
  1. Unplug the input leads on the back of the left speaker and swap them round.
  2. If sound now comes out of right speaker and not the left the problem is with your sound source (computer, IPOD or whatever) or the connecting cable is faulty.
  3. If there is still no sound from the right speaker try turning the volume control knob up and down quickly several times - does this produce any sound from the right speaker? Sometimes the electrical contacts get dirty and this can help clean them.
  4. Turn the speakers off using the volume control knob. Disconnect the speaker wire for the right speaker from the OUTPUT on the left speaker (push the red and black tabs downwards and gently pull the wires out. Find a small 1.5 volt battery (an AA or AAA size will do nicely) and touch the bare ends of the speaker wire briefly on the battery terminals. If you hear a slight crackling sound the wire and the speaker are okay and the problem is in the amplifier, which will need repair or replacement - not a job for an amateur.
  5. If you don't get any sound from the battery test find another piece of speaker wire (any piece of 2 core cable with bare ends will do for testing) and repeat the battery test. If you get sound then replace the speaker wire. If not remove the speaker wire again and go to next step.
  6. Lay the speaker face downwards and carefully unscrew the back panel (don't do this if it is still under manufacturers warranty - take it back for repair or replacement). Lift the back panel off carefully and slowly taking care not to pull the connecting wires inside the cabinet, which will probably be quite short. You may have to settle for just rotating the back panel slightly so that you can see inside if the wires are too short to do otherwise.
  7. Use sticky tape to tightly attach the bare ends of the speaker wires to the terminals of the battery. Touch the loose ends of the speaker wires on the two metal terminals where the internal wires are joined onto the back of the big loudspeaker cone. If this produces a crackling sound it is the internal wiring in the cabinet that needs re-soldering. Otherwise the loudspeaker unit has failed and will need replacement.

Hi,
Looks like your volume control switch is not working on the left side, you can check it by tapping the knob on the volume control and sound will come out on left side.
The only way to get the sound again is to replace the volume control or pull out the volume control and open it up to clean the contacts in it.

Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Only one small speaker is working, it works from left or right outlet, bass isn't working and the other small speaker isn't working. What could be wrong


Your main board located inside the sub woofer that controls and separates the sound
has lost it's ability to switch the sound. You will either have to buy a new speaker system or call the manufacturer to see where a service center for you speaker unit is near you for repair.
This also can be a bad volume control knob either way it will need to be serviced.

Only right speaker is working left doesnt sound


What has most likly happened in this case, is that either:
a) the wire has been tampered with, and has caused the left speaker to cut out,
b)the speaker settings are set to only play sound through the right speaker.
I recommend you see the bottom right of the computer screen, and look for the speaker icon. Right click the icon, and then select 'open volume control'. After doing this, make sure that all of the 'balance' bars(located at the top of 'volume control') are in the centre, and not at either side.
If this doesn't help, then I'm afraid you can only really purchase a new set of speakers, or have a fiddle with the wire, and see if there is a certain position or place the wire can be which makes both speakers work. If there is, tape the wire in a place/position which works.
Good Luck!

The left side sound is intermittent


Sounds like dirt in the volume control or a high resistance speaker wire.
Try switching the right and left speaker wires and see if the problem changes.

Strange problems with Z-2300's


I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

No sound


This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).


  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.


  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.


  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.


  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.

Logitech Z2300 rustling sound on volume knob movement


I would definately not open up the wired remote. As for the rustling sound, I had the same problem with my set (only with a hissing sound instead of rustling). Make sure the output on your computer is all the way up, as well as the volume on whatever media player you are using. That eliminated the sound for me, but it might be a different problem alltogether.
