OK, I would first check the output of the sound card using another set of speakers or a set of headphones connected to the sound card in the back.

Check the control panel to see if the sound card is 'installed' in the software operating system of windows. Make sure it is present and not crossed out. Make sure it is considered to be on and operating correctly, according to windows.

If no sound comes from this on the spare set of speakers or headphones, then I would check to see if the volume mute button is on or off in windows.

If the sound level is 50% and you still hear nothing, then the sound card may be bad. Replace it. Or, if the sound card is on the motherboard, deactivate it and add a sound card to the computer in one of the ports (PCI, PCI Express, VESA, or ISA interfaces).

If you hear sound in the spare set of speakers or headphones, then the speaker system has a bad amplifier, and it should be replaced with a new one.

Walmart sells nice speakers for anywhere from $8 on up to $78, or so.

The higher end Creative speaker systems from Walmart are 5.1 Dolby, and have center, left, and right channels, as well as a subwoofer, and rear speakers. That can be a bit much for some people, so you might consider getting a 2.1 speaker system that will sound like a boom box.

Good luck on this repair or replacement to get sound working again on your computer.

Speaker quit working


If you open the phone on your own it will void the warranty. My fiancee had the same problem with his phone. He turned it upside down and lighty tapped the speaker against the padded sofa arm. It instantly worked, by doing this the speaker contact was shifted back into place. If this does not work you should probably send it back.

''I have a xrs 9730 radar detector and the speaker quit working''


Most likely the speaker simply blew due to excessive heat. This is a fairly common problem with all makes and models of radar detectors. Contact Cobra. They should either be able to send you a replacement speaker which you can install yourself, or they should issue you a RMA so that you can send in your Cobra for service.

if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?
