I recently moved and just set up my stereo system again. After connecting the 2 speakers to Speaker A jacks and connecting the CD player, I powered it up to try it out. But, I am not getting any sound out of the speakers. Speaker A button is in the on position, and the correct inputs seem to be selected (i.e., CD or Tuner), but no sound is produced out of the speakers. I do get sound out of the headphone jack. What's going on? I have rechecked the speaker connections to make sure that they are correct. The owners manual troubleshooting guide says that the fuse may have blown out. What do you think? How would I verify that? Thanks.

Re: No sound to speakers with power on
I can not help much without the make and model as these units vary quite a bit. Please update this with that info. Also, do you hear a click when you turn on the set? You should here one followed a few seconds later by another. Please update this and I'll get you some possibilites and some things to try.

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.
Two audio input cables are supplied with the speakers. If your
computer has a stereo mini jack, use the cable with a stereo mini
plug. Otherwise, use the cable with RCA plugs on both ends.
Match the colors on the connectors to the colors on the jacks, red
to red and white to white.
The speaker cable is already attached at one end to the accessory
speaker. Plug the other end into the TO ACCESSORY SPEAKER
jack on the powered speaker.
1. Connect one end of the audio input cable to AUDIO INPUTS A.
2. Connect the other end to your computer's AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
We recommend using LINE OUT if your computer sound card
offers more than one option.
3. To connect a separate CD-ROM, or another source, repeat
steps 1 and 2 using AUDIO INPUTS B.
You must connect the AC power pack to operate the speakers.
1. Plug its cable end into the power jack on the powered speaker.
2. Plug the power pack blades into the wall outlet.
3. Turn on your computer sound source or external sound source.
Yes, I can help you. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo is that the dialog on is sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. If you have a surround sound system with two speakers in front and two speaker in back. Then you need to make a change in the Receiver Setup (Which may be set up for 3 speakers in front) so that it is set up for 2 speakers in front. The last thing my simply be that you have a center channel front speaker that is not completely connected because of a wire falling off, etc. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.
JBL Creature 2 are a computer
speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two
satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system
connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a
laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the
sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable
connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the
matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The
connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is
shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is
firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's
audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is
pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights
on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is
still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the
right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio
playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of
the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a
red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.
Insert the red and white plugs on a set of RCA audio cables
into the right and left audio "OUT" jacks on the back of the TV.
Connect the other ends of the cables to a free pair of audio
"IN" jacks on the amplifier.
Strip 1/2 inch of insulation from the speaker wires, and
connect a pair of wires to the left and right terminals on the back of
each speaker using the red wire for the right audio connection and the
other wire for the left.
Connect the other ends of the speaker wires to a pair of
stereo speaker terminals on the back of the amplifier. The wires attach
by raising spring-loaded clips on the back of the amp to reveal a hole
for inserting each wire.
Set the amplifier selector to the set of audio jacks
connected to the TV to enjoy stereo sound from the television.
Connecting Self-Powered Speakers
Insert the RCA plugs on the Y adapter into the TV's Audio
Connect the mini-plug on the wire attached to the right-hand
self-powered speaker to the mini-plug jack on the Y adapter.
Plug in the audio cable and mini-plug from the left-hand
speaker into the Audio "OUT" jack on the back of the right-hand speaker.
Connect the AC adapter to the power jack on the back of the
right-hand speaker, then plug the adapter into an electrical outlet.
Switch on the external speakers and adjust the volume.
If your laptop hasn't a 5.1 surround card you can't connect them in a true 5.1 surround system way. But if you have a stereo sound card and if you don't care about true multichannel and want just to hear sound from all the speakers you neet to connect the adapter that came along with your speaker set-just plug and match the colors from the speaker plugs with the adapter and buy a jack stereo to 2 rca cable and plug the rca connectors to the adapter and plug the stereo jack to you laptop.
bi-wiring requires the removal of the copper jumpers between the hi and low speaker terminals. you can use two wire pairs twisted together at amp out connections and the four separate ends at each speaker, but the quality of sound will not be as good as buying quality bi-wire cables. But a pair of quality single set of wires at each speaker would be fine, but put jumpers back on and attach to the top terminals, they are designed that way. bi-wiring does allow the crossover to put out a little better sound. Hooking up four sets of wires to the a and b speaker terminals sounds bad. i have had alot of trouble with my rti10's and learned the hard way that it is best to pay more for wires with quality terminations.
It seems like the speaker jack tip needs cleaning, or the contact has become bent away from the connector and needs to be re-aligned. The Passport is a portable system, so after years of plugging and unplugging the speaker jacks may be worn. Try using the "Stereo 2" connectors. You can also try cleaning the jack with electrical contact cleaner, and. a cotton swab.
AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.
There are a few settings that will just give you a stereo output. The first one is with the Pro Logic II. If you press the PLII Mode button on the remote it will go through a series of settings from MUSIC ➞ CINEMA ➞ PRO LOGIC ➞ MATRIX ➞STEREO ➞ MUSIC. Pro Logic setting will only produce sound from the front speakers and Stereo from the front speakers and the sub. Put it on Matrix for 5.1 surround sound. Also for speaker settings follow the instructions below. Signal outputs and frequency responses from the speakers will automatically be adjusted according to your speaker configuration and whether certain speakers are used or not. In Stop mode, press the MENU button. Press the Cursor down button to move to Audio and then press the ENTER button. In the SPEAKER SETUP, press the ENTER button again. Press the Cursor button to move to the desired speaker and then press the ENTER button. For C, SL, and SR, each time the button is pressed, the mode switches alternately as follows : SMALL ➞ NONE. For L and R, the mode is set to SMALL. SMALL : Select this when using the speakers. NONE : Select this when no speaker is connected. Press the RETURN button to return to the previous level. Press the EXIT button to exit the setup screen. It also seems that with this system, if you are on 5.1 surround but your music source is only in stereo, you will only hear stereo.
