Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Just bought X-140 speakers. Plugged them in and connected them to the audio output jack on the back of my HP desktop model SR5710Y. Booted up the computer and logged on to Pandora. Got sound from the built-in speakers but no sound from the Logitech external computers. Rebooted the computer with the speakers connected. The system did not detect new hardware. Still no sound from the external speakers.

Most HPs have a utility in the Conrol panel for speaker jack output assignment, verify you have them plugged into the green jack not blue/pink, verify that the digital output only is not selected in the speaker control panel. you say built in speakers , are these in the monitor, some HPS have two outputs that can be controlled individually, again this is in the control panel audio properties utility, sometimes there is a audio icon by the clock (bottom right) that will also adjust these settings, but the "control panel" way is more reliable.

Does hp pavilion a6230n desktop require external speakers?


Yes it does! Most desk top units do need external speakers. Your computer has integrated audio on the motherboard and a speaker output jack.

Cannot get speakers to work. ear piece works but not front or rear speakers.


External speakers usually require a power source. This may be provided by USB, power adapter or sometimes batteries.

They need to be plugged in AND switched on. And the audio plug needs to be in the audio socket - easily confused with a microphone socket

If you have checked that and they still do not work, you may have damaged wiring.

One last thing. Some digital speakers require a special digital socket - although the plug is the same. Check that your speakers are analog for use with a standard audio output!

I used to use desktop speakers but now i want to use the speakers built in to my monitor and they dont work


Look for a green 3.5mm port (the size of a headphone jack) on the back of your tower and connect that with an audio cable to the computer's speaker output (probably a green plug also on most PC's)
If the monitor speakers have their own power supply make sure they are also plugged in and powered on.

No speaker sound


There sometimes are three connectors on a sound card that are similar. A speaker output, microphone input, and stereo headphone output.

Try all three, if you accidentally put it on the microphone input you won't get sound output of that one, so try another.

Also, check in the speaker control panel for the sound to be checked to mute or volume turned all the way down.

I got a refurbished computer and do not know how to connect the external speakers I bought. I need a diagram or details on how to connect the speakers.


The speaker output for the Dell is the light green audio jack on the back panel. Just plug your speaker connection into that jack.

No sound


What kind of monitor is it? What kind of sound is it?

Many companies will let you access and print out their manuals for free online if you input your model and make on their website. Search under "manuals".

Also, the HP w22 LCD I have has internal speakers whose settings and volume levels are controlled through the buttons on the front bottom of the monitor. The monitor has a 'PC Audio In' jack on the back side, which is used to input the digital signal from the back 'audio output' jack of the computer desktop. This HAS to be plugged in with a specific audio cable to power (transmit the digital signal to) the internal speakers.

Check your settings for your external speakers by clicking on 'control panel', then 'hardware', then 'speakers' (IF your computer has located them, meaning that they're plugged in with their driver downloaded). You should be able to configure the speakers and test them for sound.

Windows may have a 'volume mixer' on your taskbar that controls the levels of your Windows application sounds, your device (speaker) sounds, and the Media Player(s).

Using the digital out on my HP Pavilion m9360f Elite Desktop PC


That's not an RCA jack that is for digital cable to connect to a surround sound system. What you want to do is connect an rca jack to the lime green out jack for a 2 speaker stereo system.

Soundcard problem on D530 SFF


Sounds like the audio return wires aren't connected. On the motherboard, there is a sound jack on the back left side of the mobo. The jacks from the front audio panel connects to it. Both the Left and Right channel have an out and an in connector. These send the signal to the headphone jack on the front panel and return the signal to the rear output jack if a headphone is not connected. Look for looe or broken wires. The other spot to check is the front headphone jack. If a headphone plug was pulled out or pulled sideways, it could break the solder joint on the PCB panel or break the shunt feeding the singal to the rear jacks. Hope this helps.

No sound output from rear speaker jack


Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.
