Light is on so suggests power, earth and remote turn on cable all ok. Now you just need to test the RCA signal and the AMP output. I take it you have used low level RCA as the input from the head unit? (two cables usually red n white although can somtimes be other colours) best way is with substitute amp n speakers etc although can be done with osciliscope or headphones. Once it is established the RCA signal is fine then you can check the speakers from the amp. disconnect them at the amp and put each of the two wires briefly to a battery, any battery will do e.g. 9v PP9 or 1.5v AA etc you should hear a pop from each speaker as you do it. that proves the speakers and wiring to them.
If there was no signal from the RCA the cables may be bad - requires testing from head unit to amp
failing that the RCA output may be reduced or turned off via a menu in the head unit
Or the RCA output from the unit may be knackered.

Sorry its a bit long hope it helps

I need an instruction manual to hook the speakers to my computer


There are no manuals for speakers. Speaker wires are color coded. Computer sound cards are likewise color coded.
the light green sound card mini plug port is where the green speaker wire is plugged in.
Pink is for microphone.
Black and orange sound card ports are for additional speakers.

I need to hook speakers up to my Dell B110 computer.


2 things are needed to get sound from your speakers:

1-wiring connecting your speakers to a socket to the back of the computer. (The spot they need to plug in to ON YOUR COMPUTER is a small light green circular socket. The other end of the plug you plug in here should run to one of your speakers *usually the right side speaker-the right speaker should then have separate wiring to connect the left speaker.)

2- A source of power.
Some speakers use their own power source and plug in to a power outlet - your wall. Other types have a USB type plug and plug into a USB port in your computer and that is how THOSE get their power.

Those are the basics of sound setup. Some computers are equipped with more complicated setups such as surround sound, subwoofers, digital and more. Reply if you need more help, I will try to assist you further.

Hope this helps.

I moved my computer. Hooked it back up and now the side speakers do not work. They power on but no sound . tried several connections. USB is plugged in and the green to green connection is in. checked all...


Hi

Please can you advise if you have 2 sound cards installed

You will know this by looking at the back of the computer, the sound card wil have 3 ports coloured Purple/Dark Green and Light green

Your speaker connection needs to go into the light green and will have a symbol above it like this ))(left arrow)

If there are 2 sets of ports then try one and if that fails try the other if there is only one plug your speaker conneciton into the light green port

Regards

NO SOUND


They should be plugged in and turned on when you power up your system.They should be plugged into the green jack (line out). You then may have to check settings in control panel for your sound card's properties to see if digital only is checked. Try it both ways. Hope this helps.

Sony XM-2200GTX...Power, Green Light, All OK, No Sound!


Sony generally drives their power light from a source that does not rely on the amplifier's switching power supply. This means that it's not a good indicator as to the health of the amplifier.

 

As long as you have B+ and remote voltage, it will light up. Since you've tested the speaker and the signal source, I think the amplifier is likely defective.
