Question about Dell A215 Computer Speakers

2 Answers

Can not hear sound

Since having my computer reset a few months ago my speakers haven't worked since. They are connected to my computer and I know they work as when i switch them on the green light shows. As soon as they are switched on I can hear a crackling noise coming from them. The volume icon has dissapeared and when I click on 'Sounds,Speech and Audio Devices' it comes up with no Audio device. When going to control panel looking under 'Hardware' it says the device can not start. I have tried un-installing and re- installing the speakers several times and the same thing appears. As you can tell i'm not very technical with computers so any help would be greatly appreciated thankyou.

Hello,

Try going to support.dell.com and entering your Service Tag. Then click on drivers and downloads and download and install the audio driver that they currently recommend for your machine. Sounds like a driver problem and something that wasn't set properly after the computer was reset.

I have a Toshiba 50HX70... I fixed the convergence issue around 6 months ago. Now the sound does not work... I turn it all the way up and you barely hear anything... I did move it recently, did I know...


Best best would be to try the following:

Start with taking the back cover off of the tv.

1) Verify if you can hear any sound whatsoever out of the speakers. If so, that would indicate that the speakers are still connected to the circuit board. If not, then trace the wires from the speakers to where they plug on to the board.

2) if you hear sound (hiss) in the speakers, but not the audio signal from your program you are watching, then look to ensure all connecters are fully seated around the RCA jacks in the back.

If those two do no produce results, then could be a solder joint on the board finally failed after moving the tv, or the amplifier for the speakers has failed. If you hear sound though as in step 1 above, i would doubt it is the amplifier IC.

Creative Inspire 5200 system won't work


Hi. Check your speaker system with a different audio device like iPod or any MP3 Player using the same jacks. If the speaker system gives out sounds then nothing is wrong with it... if no sounds come out, then you know what I mean...

Try to replace the speaker of your sub-woofer... maybe that can fix it!

Clestion S10 Sub not working


Instead of connecting it to the sub output, try it on the L or R output of your amp.
This will eliminate the Denon.
If this fails, you need to test the loudspeaker driver unit whilst disconnected from the sub amp. Use a 1.5v cell (AA or bigger) connect using croc leads to the speaker's terminals. If the speaker is OK, you should hear a click. If you hear nothing, the speaker unit is faulty.

Stopped working


Sorry I don't have a solution, but the speakers have done the same with us. Power comes on, some sound like the wire shorting out, but otherwise no sound. Tried different connection wires, different computers (mac and pc) but no go on any of them. So, I also don't think it has anything to do with you deleting some files.
