I got these speakers about 6 months ago, and until today they have been great. i have read many similar problems but have been unable to find a solution. i believe that the problem is in the jack of the right speaker, because if i plug the right speaker into the left jack, it works. both speakers and the sub all work but whichever speaker is plugged into the right jack, (black) will have no sound. i have tested this on 2 computers and my ipod to be sure that it was the sound system that was malfunctioning
1ST.-The right jack could be damaged!!
Usually, there is a [+} posaitve & [-] negative input\output to speaker connections. Not all [-]neg. is ground.Sometimes the [+] pos. is grounded. [The exception to the rule is that u SEE the black wire going to ground] the reason I am letting u know this is that u can test the INSIDES of the sound system.
If u can get inside of the unit. Cut the left speaker output [+] posative from both outputs. criss\cross wires.Place left speaker output to right speaker jack[ that does not work!!] & visa versa.If the [LEFT Output] stops working after u plug in the speakers,the internal RIGHT output is damaged. NEEDS TO BE TESTED
If nothing nothing changes.The left still works & the right still does not work, then it is the jack (shorted ?, opened internally ?)

I do also get this same issue, They were working just fine, and 4 or 5 months ago, the right speaker crackles, if i unplug the right speaker all is fine. But as soon as I plug the right speaker in, i get a cracking sound. Have you solved this ussue?
Open up your computer the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good or you might have to clean the dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
if this fails to fix the problem you might have to uninstall your soundcard restart your computer then reinstall it
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to sounds and video controllers expand right click select uninstall then restart your computer and reinstall your soundcard hope this helps
try replacing the input cord between the speakers and the computer. the scratching noise normaly comes from a faulty connector. if that doesnt work you may have dirt or dust in contact with the speakers cones or there is an amplifier issue
I suspect that the jack on the computer may have failed or the end of the cable that you jack in has failed. The green light indicates that power is getting to the speakers but not the sound signal. You can try repairing the cable jack prong by splicing another similar jack prong from Radio Shack, but the jack face on the mother board is a more difficult job. If you had another set of speakers you could try jacking them in to see if they operate, thus eliminating the mother board jack.
check for the power button is on behind the woofer or speaker,if ur speakers does not have switch hten select the volume control optin and click the properties and check the sounds by clicking the speaker images in that window.if u have problem again,askme through fixya again.
After I posted my problem, I browsed a bit further through the other posts and solutions, until I came across the excellent solution of TrickyTrev34 and gave it a try. However, I did not slice the cable, but did it as follows:
1. Switch off power of the sound system on the subwoofer box. Disconnect the Front Right (FR) speaker box (the one with the volume control) from the subwoofer box.<br> 2. Remove the silver coloured metal oval on which the speaker box stands. Now you'll see a small screw at the bottom of the speaker box. remove it.<br>
3. Carefully remove the silver coloured metal protection plate (with all the little holes) from the front of the FR speaker box by wedging it from the top with a flathead screwdriver or other thin blunt object. Now you'll see the speaker and 4 holes with screws inside. Remove screws and speaker box opens up..<br>
4. Inside you should see six wires (Red, Blue, Yellow, White, Green & Black). Carefully cut the GREEN wire only. Insulate the both ends of the GREEN wire with electrical tape or heatshrink or similar.<br> 5. Put the FR speaker box back together in reversed order.<br>
6. Connect FR speaker back to the subwoofer box. Make sure the volume setting on your PC is very low, because when you switch back on the power of the subwoofer, you should be blasting again.<br>
As TrickyTrev34 already mentioned, the only downside of this procedure is that it will disable the volume control on the FR speaker, but who cares, your sound system works again, and you can still control the volume via the PC playback control panel and/or the multi-media keyboard if you have one.<p>Thanks for giving the lead trickytrev34.
I had a problem with the speakers not working properly. The green lights lit, but the amount of sound coming from the speakers compared to that of the sub was much lower. I decided to take it the speakers apart. I found that the magnets on the speakers had moved forward slightly in the plastic cage they sat in. I pushed them back as far as they would go, and Hey Presto! working again! I hope this helps someone!
