SOURCE: connecting creative labs fps 1600 sound system to laptop. How?

hi, i recommend just using the headphone out, and it probably will not hurt the notebook, as it is not feeding back into the notebooks sound device. you may wish to do as i did, and get a creative labs external sound card. much improvement over the on-board high def sound built into my acer notebook.with all the connections you would want! as for speakers there are alot of models to pick from.i usually go with creative, but this time i went logitech- thx,dts,ect. and i am very happy. i hope this helps you make a decision on what do. good luck!glen

No sound out of Behringer BXL3000 speaker


Suspected Faulty PC board Dead Capacitor Or Mod Pot I would suggest returning it for an exchange the problem is your speaker will work on a regular stereo because a stereo powers the sound internally causing the magnets in the speaker to vibrate Headphone jacks are designed to pick up off a seperate circuit board with a different connection to the main board hence the no sound from the speaker.

Speakers stopped working no sound


Let verify first to narrow down to where the problem can be. First, check the on screen sound set up menu to make sure the speakers are not set to OFF. If the setting is OK, then attach the powered PC speakers to the Audio Line out RCA jacks to see if you can get the sound there, if you do, then the problem can be in the power amp circuits, if you do not get the sound at RCA jacks, then the problem can be in the sound processor circuit. Please post back what you find.

Peavey minx 110 no sound from main speaker but headphone jack is ok. speaker wires are attached ok.everything on the board appears to be in good shape.amp powers up and all controls work great through...


Inside the headphone jack is a built in switching mechanism. It is there to cut off the sound to the speaker when you are using headphones to practice quietly. For some reason or another it seems as if this is no longer working correctly. One of the causes of this can be bad solder joints on the circuit board where this jack is located. Another cause is a failure of the jack itself. If you are capable, Take the circuit board out and have a look. Hope this helps.

My laptops speakers stopped working


Have you tried a pair of headphones to see if they work?
Is the sound ouput muted? (a lot of laptops have a physical button to
do this...

check to see if the laptop is muted. Also, check the
volume control to see if everything is up where it should be, including
Speaker Out.

If I've got this all straight, the only thing that it can be is an
issue with the plug on the speakers and the jack on the laptop.

Obviously the computer is putting out sound to the headphone jack as
evidenced by your ability to listen through headphones. The speakers
work on another computer. So, it has to be something specific about
the Speakers on this laptop. Plug/Jack problem is the only thing that
comes to mind.

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working


Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

My sound system stopped working


what PC, non stated , only that old monitor
that monitor is 16 years old today, wow , 99% are dead now
long ago, dead when the CCFL lamps burned out long ago
you be lucky it works at all, a fact.
no the USB port is not sound, but they sell USB speakers and head phones that have its own sound system (CHIP_) total that replaces
the sound in your unstated PC, (but is topic 2 not #1)

lets do sound blind, I cant see your pC can I, no photos
or names or models or what cables are attached can I, now.

so sound 101: day: (forget USB for now, ok?)
1: my guess is desktop of some kind, (i use a monitor on a laptop)
2: remove all usb devices now, cept keyboard and mouse.
3: now see rear of PC, see those 3 or more 3.5mm phone jacks.?
sure, see that green round phone jack, that is LINE out.
1.5mm diameter it is, (no set of pins , no USB this)
if you connect ear buds or a real phone jack head phones this works now, (does it , bugs are 1 buck at the dollar store)

eg: click control panel of your unstated windows, click sound
click speakers, mine has many speakers to chose, 7.1, but if old PC it has one speaker click that,. (mine is fancy express sound card,with surround sound, so can yours if you buy the card)
then click tab called,sounds , see asterisk. and test button
this is the best way to test sound first. only this.
This is built in to all windows made. all.
and always works if the sound driver is present.

if the test button fails to work at all. is gray out that is windows way of telling you the sound driver is borked up, missing or corrupted, one of my PC run linux, so.... that be different...

lets say you get this far, ok?
4: lets say a real head phone works on the 1green jack. it must.
forget USB for now, that is advanced stuff that MS does not support but can function good with hard work later.
5: now that monitor or any external speakers sold are all ampified speaker,, no they are NOT just speaker with only a voice coil inside. not at all.
the monitor needs that 3.5mm cable attached,
the amp in the monitor must be accessed, just like real exteral speakers that same do.
on the monitor,here I will read your manual to you now.
so can you why not do that first??????
6:push the menu button on the monitor to get to sound volume/
the FP5012 as a 2watt amp inside that can fail
or someone reset the monitor and the reset puts volume to 0
zero.
the jack is named on mon.
1 x audio - input - mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm - 1


why not just by new external speaker kit (amplified for PC)?
spend like $10?

i found your manual, want it? push center button now.
push menu choice (OSD) 5 , for sound volume
bingo? page 15, in dah manual.
omg, its got its own button on front of mon.
its not in the OSD on this monitor as is most.

http://www.manualsdir.com/manuals/67592/compaq-5017.html

end stock sound systems.
USB is a totally different and more complex topic,
as all USB devices can be, MS even has a warning on the use of these usb sound devices, ask and can send it to you
in short MS says zero support on them ask your vender for that.

do not run onboard sound with USB sound or they will fight each other, until you learn how to control that, ask. we do it all the time here.
ok here is the V button set, below. if this fails
and buds work, the monitor is BAD.
if the buds fail the PC is messed up, (USB not used)
cost of testing $1 (buds)

v-y5lcaykkf42lwqqbpm0ein5s-3-0.jpg buds means ear buds, sold in just about all stores now.
for nada, get some keep them handy of cheap testing.

please bring a good contact cleaner from radio shack near you and apply the spray over the socket of the headphone(the place where you put your headphone jack)take headphone jack out and apply spray in and insert the jack in and out many times.-also check your system setup and confirm that all speaker are on- no mute button pressed-no cable is disconnected.
