    I have tried to play it through ther playstation 3, a digital turntable etc all turned on but does'nt register.

    I have the exact same problem. I have tried both a coaxial and optical inputs from my computer and an optical input from a dvd player, so I believe it is not a problem with the source. It worked fine for over a year, but ever since a big thunderstorm it will not recognize digital inputs. It is in a top of the line surge protector but maybe interference from a particularly close lightning bolt messed it up?

Try to disconnect the input connector of your speaker and touch the input jack of the unit if you hear a hazing sound it means your speakers are working properly but if you don't hear any sound your speakers are bad. Open the speaker unit and check the amplifier section of your unit. If you don't see any burned electronic component inside. Check the wiring of your unit.
To check if the audio of your computer is working. Plug in the input a headset if you hear a sound while you playing a music in your computer it means the audio of your computer is working good.

Drivers missing


most computer speakers don t use a "Driver" they are typically controlled by the "Sound card" drivers. Typically there are three jacks that computer speakers fit into. look for a green receptacle to verify they are plugged into. Typically (pink = microphone) (blue = input) . Check your power input to the speakers, very common to become unplugged from the wall outlet. (however some speakers do not have external power source) verify , mute is not checked off. (speaker icon by the clock) check control panel , speaker settings. ...sometimes people inadvertently check off "digital output only" which effectively turns the speakers off.

If I remember correctly, those speakers were supplied with some Gateway computers equipped with a digital soundcard, and the speakers take only digital input.

Take a look at the input plug and compare it to these:

If yours looks like the mono plug, your speakers will only work with the original digital card. Plug them into your new computer and you'll get nothing out of them.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Is this just a speaker system or does it have a separate control unit?
My Creative system has a unit to select analogue, digital or optical inputs. Only the digital and optical will give 5.1 - but then only if the source material is Dolby Digital or Pro Logic.

Connecting BA735 digital 3.5mm plug with S/PDIF coax jack


The male mono plug (from the left small speaker) should be connected into the right speaker (small speaker with controls) . After plugging the multi pin cable from the control speaker to the sub-woofer you need to plug in a signal source from your computer (or any other digital signal) into the sub-woofer. This digital input looks like an ordinary RCA plug but carries many channels of audio. That connects to the enabled digital output of your computer. Some computers output digital through a 3.5mm jack others look just like an RCA phono jack. If you are lucky some BA735 sub-woofers have a second input that is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack and it will take analog audio from computer, DVD, MP3 player or the like. I have three sets of these speakers that I love because of their big volume considering such a small size.

How to use BA7500G on another computer


I have the same problem except i'm using a macbook and i'm trying to connect the speakers. My macbok accommodates optical digital audio output, but you have to buy a  a standard toslink cable with a toslink mini-plug adapter.  Since the speaker input is a digital coaxial (not fiber, optical) you have to buy a Digital Fiber Optical (Toslink) to Digital Coaxial (S/PDIF) Converter.  i haven't tried it, but i hope this solves our problem. i have the toslink now i just have to buy the converter. good luck to you.
