Question about JBL CREATUREIIWHITE Computer Speakers

1 Answer

One speaker doesn't function at all, no little green light, no sound. The speaker with the volume control works fine, I can adjust the volume, everything's peachy. Other than jiggling the wire where this faulty speaker connects in, is there anything else I can try? Is there something specific I can look for if I open it up?

Check the impedance or resistance of the speakers with an OHM meter - should be around 4 to 8 ohms. If you don't get a reading, its bad.

It shows the speakers are on but no sound


If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)

Can't find the hands free speaker button


In an increasingly hands-free world, the external speaker feature of cell phones has increased the usability of cell phonesmag-glass_10x10.gif in the car, public transportation and at work. The volume controls on the external speaker controls can be somewhat difficult to find and manipulate.
  1. Step 1 Make sure the speaker setting is actually on. If the speaker is turned to off, the volume you hear will be coming from the earpiece and will be very low indeed. Sometimes there is a button on a cellphone which you can simply press and hold to activate the speaker function. You will notice a difference immediately.
  2. Step 2 Check to see if you have external volume controls. On some models, there is a button or two buttons that adjust the volume of both the handset and the speaker volume. If you have these buttons, use them to adjust these controls while on calls. Remember that adjusting the speaker volume will subsequently adjust the handset volume once you've turned off the speaker mode.
  3. Step 3 Access the sound controls in your phone. If your phone does not have external speaker control, it can be accessed by adjusting the controls saved on your phone. Also, the main settings can be controlled even if you do have external controls. Phones are different, but in your menu of options, choose sound and sound controls. This should give you options for ring volume, alarm volume and handset volume.
  4. Step 4 FInd volume controls for all settings. If you wish yo have multiple settings for each function---alarm, calls and speaker---you should be able to adjust these accordingly. Search through the control options until you've found speaker controls. Choose the setting you desire and save the settings.
  5. Step 5 Using the main volume as a foundation, use the external controls (if applicable) to adjust the levels.

I can hear my daughter when we skype but she gets no sound from me.


When you are in a call, find the little down arrow beside the call time near the bottom of the call window. Choose Sound Settings...
Find the green volume indicator under Microphone and make some noise. If it lights up and moves, your mic is working fine. Adjust the volume of the microphone by dragging the speaker slider left or right.
If the indicator doesn't move or light up, try choosing another device from the Speakers dropdown list. If you still can't make yourself heard, repeat this for all the devices.

If this doesn't help, reinstall your audio (sond card) driver software.

Best o luck

Speakers are plugged in correctly, lights on but still no sound


Check your output jack again and make sure its on the green jack
and also check your speaker wires, if okay then check this;

For Windows XP;
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Sounds and Audio Devices
  3. On the Volume tab under "Device volume" check that sound is NOT muted
  4. Adjust volume control
  5. Check "Speaker Setup" under "Speaker settings" under the "Advanced" button
For Vista:
  1. Control Panel
  2. Sounds
  3. Select Speakers then properties
  4. Make sure device is enabled
  5. Test sound
  6. Adjust volume controls
Under Device Manager make sure that under your sound card that you dont have a yellow exclamation. Yellow exclamation indicates you need to install the correct driver.
