Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers

Open Question

My sub-woofer doesn't work. Everything else is working properly. I have done everything I can think of to fix the problem. I have uninstalled then reinstalled the software, removed my sound card examined it for for damage then cleaned the sound card (nothing swollen or broken) I've tinkered around with my settings nothing works. I tried to remove the backing off of the sub it stops because it's connected to the components inside by several wires. Help!!! I've had this system for about 7yrs with no problems until now.

SOURCE: my computer speakers are making this weird noise

the First thing to test are the speakers form a different source. I believe that if you hook them up to another computer or an mp3 player you will find that the problem goes away and they work fine. (I know this by the info you gave me. THe fact that you get a large hum from the card when it is plugged in means that the output on the card has a short in it and is crossing the connections somewhere.

Solution is to have the card replaced or test it with another set of speakers just to be sure it isn't the cable.

SOURCE: ADA745 speakers have no output

Had the same issue as treefarmer and guest. Initially I thought that the voltage controlled pre-amps were the problem as well but further testing proved that wrong. If you remove the yellow wire from the RT Front speaker PCB and measure the voltage at the wiper of the pot it is still too low (should swing from 0 to 5 volts). On investigation it turned out that the pot was failing.

I couldn't find a proper replacement pot so had to fix the broken one. After removal and dissassembly it discovered there was a leakage path between the carbon trace and the bushing assembly. The top deck which contains the carbon path for the wiper can be removed by bending back the tabs that hold it to the metal case. Carefully cleared the shorting path with a probe and retested with an ohm meter..

Re-installed and wala it works!

Dv7 subwofer is missing so speakers and headphones dont work. Do i need a new subwofer?


Generally speaking, sub-woofers are not built into notebook computers, as most sub-woofers would not fit. However, there are generally speakers, and there tend to be problems with the audio drivers in most cases if there is no sound for both speakers and headphones.
Within the notebook, there should only be two speakers. If they're missing, did you buy this used or refurbished? If someone just yanked out the two speakers and carelessly cut or handled the wiring improperly, then this could interrupt the headphone bypass cut-off.
I know you mentioned you'd already verified everything appeared to be working properly, and in some cases updating drivers or uninstalling and re-installing them has a positive result. For the obvious, which I've also forgotten to check sometimes, is whether the output is muted within the volume control and mixer.
In case you hadn't already checked out these, here are a few links you may find useful:http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01613382.pdf

As always, the more complete the information up front, the better the potential for a solution. I hope this helps!

MX6050D Subwoofer Issues


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Fault is either from the main system or the sub-woofer itself.

You need to test both unit in order to detect which of the two is giving the fault, so that you can concentrate on the faulty unit.

Test the woofer with a AA battery or any other battery. Put your ears close to the woofer and observe if you will hear any sound. If the woofer makes sound, then it means the woofer is working, but if it doesn't make sound, then it means the woofer is defective. Or you can disconnect one of the working speakers and connect the woofer to that part. If there is no sound, then obviously, the woofer is defective.

If the woofer seem to be working, then the unit needs to be tested also.

Connect one of the working speakers to the sub-woofer's section of the main unit. If the speaker doesn't bring out sound, check the system's menu settings, check the volume and make sure the sub-woofer volume is raised to the highest level and not on mute. ( Note that most Theater systems has separate volumes for each speakers). If the volume is raised to the highest level and there is still not sound from the woofer part, then it means the woofer channel has burnt. It could be a fuse or a defective channel. At this point, I think you need help from a repairman.

I hope the above is clear.

Regards.

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

How to install klipsch sub woofer to yamaha reciever rx-v559. everything working properly but sub wont be adjusted with volume. i got my stuff moved out here but had a mate help me set up. didnt pull it...


Does the sub work at all? How is it hooked up? The sub needs to be fed by an RCA cable from the Subwoofer Output jack for the receiver to control its output.
