Left Speaker Stopped Working

Suddenly, after a good year and a half or so of no problems, my left speaker (the one without the power button or volume) stopped producing sound. You could hear the faint hiss that the speakers give off when the unit is on and the volume is up, but no input; the right speaker is perfect though.

I plugged in a speaker borrowed from a 5.1 speaker set to the dysfunction left speaker plug but again, hiss, no sound. I'm guessing something internal may be bad. Any thoughts?

I think I had a similar problem. My speakers were brand new and after a while I lost my front left and rear left speaker. I'm not sure about you guys but after fiddling around with the settings it worked after I changed the "S/PDIFoutput sample rate" from 48 to 96 khz. I have no clue what I did, but it worked for me. I am running logitech something or rather speakers with VIA HD audio deck drivers

Very week sound


Definitely need more info - such as type of amplifier or receiver, how many speakers you are running, whether the subwoofer is powered or not.
As a simple test procedure: Disconnect all speakers and plug in a pair of headphones. Get a strong audio signal? Good, move on. No signal or week signal, you have an amplifier issue before the audio even gets to the speakers.
Next: Disconnect all speakers, turn the volume down, and connect one speaker to the left output channel. Slowly increase the volume. If that works, do the same on the right channel. Everything OK? You're putting out enough gain on both channels. Sometimes one channel goes bad. You can still listen to your sound in mono moder, or drive two speakers from the single working output. Not stereo, but dual mono. Move on.
Connect left and right speakers but not the subwoofer. Repeat the test. Whatever is left is probably the problem. If the subwoofer is powered, check the power supply or incoming voltage. If the other speakers are driven off the subwoofer or powered from there, that's likely the problem.

Bose acoustimas speaker output jacks not working


try to trace your problem inside the main circuitry of the jacks ( open it and see on the solder side of the Printed circuit board(where all the electronic components and soldered/welded if there are loose connections (small cracks... use magnifying glass if you have one) then solder them.
also check for the transistor amplifiers and output capacitors....
check also for the connectivity of all wirings!

How to adjust volume on left speaker? volume is extremely low on that side.


Its most likely the balance or fader that is causing the volume difference. set both of them to the mid setting ( usually straight up on a round dial) and check the volume again. if its still low check the speaker wire connection if it looks good on the bad side try swapping the cables from left to right. if the same side is still low the issue is most likely the amp.

You might try replacing the connection cables. Old cables can cause the problem you have experienced.

Infinity 3.5c , 2 powered Woofer 5.25" suddenly no sound.,


The woofers on my 3.5c stopped working, but with mine the light was off. I unplugged it and left it for about 24 hours and then plugged it back in and it worked. No idea why. It's happened twice and each time takes at least 12 hours or a day or so before it'll work again, just unplugging it for an hour won't do it.

It seems like both times the problem started when the speaker got unplugged without it being shutoff first, but I can't confirm.

But if your light is still on it's probably a different problem. With my 4.1t towers when the light was on but there was still no sound it equated to numerous fried amp components which cost about $150 for repair.

Stereo speaker suddenly stopped giving sound


You will need to take the speaker apart and with an ohm meter or continuity tester, measure the resistance of the speaker right at the speaker to see if the speaker is open. if it is you have no choice then to replace the speaker. If the speaker measures a low resistance, measure the wires froom the speaker to the output wires or terminals. Some speaker manufacturers install small fuses inside their speakers. Good Luck

Rear left speaker not playing


If the speaker itself is working then the problem will most likely be the connection point where the speaker plugs into. If you dont know how to check for this problem, i dont really want to tell you just in case you hurt yourself. Take it to a shop and have it looked at by someone thats knows what there looking for.
