Can't them to work on my tv after plugging them into the 3.5mm audio out jack


Excuse me if I'm sounding a bit dumb, but don't these speakers need to be powered by an external power supply (You didn't give the model but I'm almost 100% sure they do). if so are they connected to power? And if they are (again, you didn't give the make and model of your TV) are you sure it's an output and not an input jack?

Simple things of course but sometimes overlooked.


Regards,

HELP ! No/limited volume from satellite speakers


1. Make sure all wall and power outlet switches are on and that all switches for your speaker system are on. Cycle the power switch.(switch is located on the back of the subwoofer) Check power LED on left and right speakers. Is the LED on? If not, power is not getting to your speaker system. Make sure the power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet. 2. Ensure that the speaker input jack is pushed all the way into the appropriate jack. Check all the connections and secure them. 3. Check the connection to the soundcard. Make sure it is connected to the proper jack. This varies from each soundcard manufacturer. (Please refer to your soundcard manual.) 4. Your volume settings are too low or muted. Increase your volume by pressing the + key located on top of the right satellite. You can also check your volume through the volume control located in the taskbar. To mute and unmute the speakers, press the + and - controls at the same time.

the part that is for your problem
This is an indication that the satellite speakers are not plugged in all the way to the subwoofer. You will hear a slight "snap" sound if they are plugged in all the way. The inputs are color coded and shape coded (triangle and square). Make sure they are aligned properly.

Thinkpad T41 with XP-sp3: No sound / working fine until yesterday


Hi. Try plugging in an external speaker just to test the issue. It could be just the speaker of the laptop is having the problem. If you were able to hear the sound from the external speaker then the problem is the built in speaker of the computer. If there is no sound coming out to external speakers. Try to reinstall the driver of your soundcard.

Boston BA7500G Speakers with no sound.


Well we have eliminated the laptop as a problem,.. that is very good. As far as what the problem with your BA unit is,.. we only know that it does not function with an external device (laptop and mp3 player). you already mentioned that a sound test from the unit plays through all the speakers,. right? With that lets start with the most basic item that will cause this problem,.. the cable that comes from the BA unit and plugs into the laptop or mp3 player. Is the cable plugged into the right place on the BA unit? Does the cable disconnect from the the BA unit? if so, do both ends of the cable look the same or is there 2 ends (maybe red and white) that plug into the BA unit? Please let me know when you can and we can continue troubleshooting this.

It is a klh powered subwoofer, which buzzes when plugged in, even though the power switch is set to "off"


Sounds like the grounds are screwed up. Try using a grounded wire for the subwoofer input. If that doesn't work, it sounds like something is internally screwed up, like the power supply doesn't fully power down. I guess besides buying a new amp, just connect it to a power strip where the switch is accesable and shut the sub off with the power supply.

You need to install the drivers for your soundcard. Try to find out what model of soundcard do you have and what version of Windows and try to search for the specific driver on the internet.
You can try these websites:
http://www.driverguide.com/
http://www.soft32.com/c/Windows/Drivers/2-52.html
Here's a tutorial on how to install a driver: http://www.totallydrivers.com/resources/directions_installation.asp
If you still can't hear sound try these steps, maybe it's not from your soundcard:
-Plug in the speakers
-Turn on the speakers.
-Turn-up the volume in Windows and on the speakers.
-Uncheck the mute checkbox in sound control panel.
-Verify a sound should be playing. In the Control Panel, play some Windows sounds. Play a music CD.
-Plug the speakers into the right hole on the sound card.
-Are the speakers plugged into the sound card and not the MODEM?
-Is the sound card installed correctly?
-Is the power converter for the speakers plugged into a wall outlet or surge protector?
-Is the power converter plugged into the speakers?
-Try other speakers or a head phone?

Strange buzzing noise


Sounds like a bad filter cap in the power supply.when you change dimmer switch the buzz changes slightly because of a different power sraw on the power supply. If you are not versed in electronic repair. Get an Estimate. Or if unit is old get yourself a new one. Good Luck
