Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks II Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Stuttering and the sound breaks

Hi I had this Harman Kardon Sundstick of mine for almost 2 years. It worked perfectly well until today. I just went back from holiday for 6 weeks and I unplugged everything before I left.
Now if I just push the volume buttton I can hear stuttering boise from my speakers and if I play music either with lots of base (like hip hop) or noe base but with high volume, the sound breaks, cracks and stutters too. Could you tell me what am I suppose to do now? I bought them in Hong Kong and the warranty expired already. I live in Germany now, where there is no service centre for Harman Kardon. Thank you so much.

    I think I have the same problem. All of a sudden they produce a crack in the sound as if there is a piece of dust under the needle of a record player.
    How and where do I clean? Subwoofer, connections, USB...??

Sounds like the controls have dust in them. Blow the controls with dust cleaner.

One of the transducers in my Harman Kardon Soundsticks III is loose. How can I reattach in the tube?

HI, the best way is to use a 4 1/2" long nose plier. 1. Insert the plier in to the center hole of the satellite's transducer that has come loose (small round speaker that comes in a set of four inside the clear tube) 2. Gently pull until the transducer is in position (edges aligned, wires not tangled in the rear) 3. Give a thorough pull until the transducer is flush against the tube housing (make sure not to clasp the point on the transducer's grill to roughly inorder to minimize damage to the surface) 4. Enjoy P.S. I went to the hardware store and purchased the pliers for $3.99 if you don't already have a pair handy.

No Sound Whatsoever, Either From Speakers or Woofer

Disconnect the cable from the laptop and try to get sound out from the laptop via speakers or headphones, have a look around the sound settings.

Harmon/kardon computer speakers not working, light on, no sound

Hello frostyscoppe & micoh luv. I'm sorry to say that (like mine) they may have just 'packed in'! I had the same problem and contacted Harmon Kardon directly, They said there was a circuitry problem that couldn't be repaired and suggested I get the latest HK IIs. So I did and found these to be much more versatile and worth upgrading to. I thought my 'old' HDs were fine but sadly things aren't made to last like they used to be!!! If someone else is able to 'rescue' your originals I'd be very interested to hear their suggestions.

Harman Kardon Soundsticks II left speaker

Hi, Kazim
Firts things First:
1) check connector for 2 way sound. you can use a headphone for this.
2) you also buy Ipod dock sound speakers, there is Ihome speakers, great ones, for less than 25.00 dollars.
3) you have to see balance on those speakers.
good luck
