Question about HP JBL Platinum Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Speakers not working

Hey, I can see this has been posted a few times, but none of the others seem to solve my problem.

We've just gotten a new Compaq computer, with Vista, and we're unable to get our speakers to work. The computer seems to claim it already has working speakers, and it detects when I plug in or out my speakers, but the Power light on the speakers won't light up. (Clearly JBL Platinum speakers)

Any ideas?

I have the same problem with pluggng speakers into dell computer. I see on the dell there is no provision to get power to the speakers as there was on the presario. There is a power (12V) wire that does not have a place to go into on the dell.

Hey I've had my Logitech z506 speakers for a few


I don't know for certain but, this is usually a sign of the overload circuit in operation. Speakers are not designed to be used on full volume constantly. Next time this happens try and turn them off for a couple of minutes, when you turn them on again try with the volume lower than when you turned them off. If you are regularly using them at full volume, then maybe it is time to invest in a more powerful set. Buy them by their RMS power output, NOT by their PMPO (peak mean power output) this is already an inflated figure and is usually about 4 times the real power output. I hope this helps.

Hello shashining,


I've read your "post," and I think that the best solution to the 'problem is to:
Get an "Update on the Drivers and Software.
"Most situations cannot be solve by 'pressing a couple of buttons'; sometimes
We have to go into the "Control Panel," or go to a "Website" to get updates for the computer,
"Drivers are needed for Hardware, eg, (Hard Drives, Printers, CD / DVD Players, Audio Sound, Speakers, Microphones, Mouse, Keyboards, and Webcams), to work correctly; also, some Software products."
"Upgrading the computer in any way, or added a 'new' software product?"
Causes the System Configurations, to change!
Many cases involving "Upgrades from an 'older' {Operating System, eg. XP or Vista},

to Windows 7, can cause a change in "Hardware Devices," not functioning properly;

or not to work at all !"


"These easy instructions will help you solve these issues, and hopefully, we'll be able to fix the problem the first time."

"This is what you need to do first!"
1. Click on the Website [below].
2. Enter the information required, Product Type?

Series# number? Model# number?

The {OS - Windows7 / Vista or XP} if needed?.

3.Download the Drivers
4.Turn-off the computer.
5. Disconnect the Speakers.
6. Restart the computer.
7. Install the Drivers.
8. Restart the computer again.
9. Connect the Speakers.
10. Turn on the Speakers.

"Let me know if you need more help, if it didn't fix the problem?
Post a "Comment" to get more help.
"I would appreciate it if you let me know!
Best Regards, paul7of9

I've had my my Logitech speakers for a few months now and they've worked fine up until a few weeks ago. Now if I turn the volume up more than a quarter of the way the sound goes scratchy and...


the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

FRONT RIGHT SPEAKER do not turn on, no power


Sounds like the amplifier has gotten a surge of power and gotten fried. You will need to replace your system as there are no user servicable parts inside the unit. You can also try seeing if there is a fuse on the main speaker prior to getting a new one. Also check all connections to make sure your getting power too

One speaker sucks.


this is either a bad cable or loose soldering. Inspect for physicaly damage and either replace the cables or the speakers all together.

I had the same problem: speakers worked, but clicked whenever they were on. They are actually Compaq speakers connected to a Dell computer. I solved the problem by moving the speakers about 12 inches farther away from my wireless router. Very easy!

check if any other speakers are working
If not try and install the drivers for sound ,if the other speakers work ,try and check the compatibility of the speakers with he new system and windows vista.
The best thing is get in touch with the hardware vendor from whomsoever you bought this and they will let you know about the compatibility and if its the drivers and other support you can visit

First things first:

1) time to change your stick speakers.
2) if got warranty, use it, if not, have to RMS them but I just
counsel you to change for others.
