Question about Harman Kardon HK19.5 Computer Speakers

4 Answers

Left speaker not working...

My left speaker stopped working recently. It's plugged into the right speaker correctly, and the green light is even on. But, no sound comes out. I wonder if it's a short in a wire somewhere (I guess it happens after 6 years of use with not much movement?) but I wanna make sure first.

    Same prob, also Left spk not working (or extremely soft/ inaudible). There is a 'Diag button' (?some sort of test button?) behind R spk, when depressed, both spks give peep sound though R seems sl louder- think it means that spk is mechanically ok?. Otherwise, green light on both spks= ok, not cpu jack prob bc other spks work.
    Split open both spks... dunno how to interpret circuit board(CB)- think its prob w CB.
    Doubtful of fix ability prospect,
    But tks for any adv.

    (only managed to discover its a 'HK19.5 reva' via sticker on speaker after splitting spk open... bad labeling by HK? :)...)

I am supporting TIRZO by adding that you can open the left speaker case and check the wire that leads to the main speaker, I hope the fault should be from the connection between the main speaker and the green light that is on.

Hi, there's a big possibility that the issue you encountered in your speaker might be caused by a faulty or shorted wire. You can check it by inspecting for any sign of damage on the wire and try connecting your left speaker to a different input source.

Take a 9 volt battery and attach a wire to the positive and negative leads of the battery.then unhook the speakers from the system attach the 9 volt dc battery to each speaker if one makes a bump sound and the other dosent ...I will bet you have a blown speaker .Which can easily be replaced in most cases .Let me know how this works out for you.

Radio gets no power, fuses and wires are good


Check your connections again. Check that they're connected correctly. Look at a diagram, check the fuse on the power (red) wire from the radio. The radio might have fuses on the back of it, check them too. If anything put and tape every thing back together and use a harness then go from there.
