Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers

Picking up Radio?

I turned on my speakers recently to discover I was hearing County 102.5 (I live in Boston) coming faintly through on my speakers with a substantial amount of humming as well. I can play my own iTunes loud enough to get over it, but what the hell? Why are my speakers channelling a horrible radio station?

Hi,

my friends dental work in her mouth enabled her to hear music through her head due to the dissimilar metals in the dental work. I have heard mixed reviews for dell speaker sets which may or may NOT be actual dell equipment, you can try opening the amp box and lining it with tin foil, that may help, if its under warranty send it back. In the auto industry something like this would be called a monday(hangover) production, whereas something produced mid week would be of much higher fit and finish. ridiculous but that kind of stuff still happens..

What does "check OP" mean


This means that the weather radio has not received the weekly test signals for over a week. Turn the radio off and then back on. Next set the radio to announce the current weather (on my unit the button is marked Weather) and listen to the broadcast. If you do not hear the broadcast, move the radio until you do.

If you can't get a good signal, check the NOAA site for your coverage area to see if the local emergency alert broadcast towers are under repair. If needed try one of the other towers that cover your county. Sometimes you may get one location better than the others if you are near the edge of the county or are surrounded by hills. http://www.weather.gov/nwr/Maps/ has the maps by state and those link to the frequency of each tower that can be heard in a given county.

If the radio still fails to hear the test alerts, you may need an external antenna or a new radio. (Caution: the external antenna may hear a more distant tower and not give your local alert. We got the wrong state on one radio.)

(who has one weather radio on each side of the house set to two different towers. I live 2 miles from the state line. We had severe weather a few days ago and only the in-state tower broadcast the severe weather watch. The local television stations displayed different watches and warnings depending on which NOAA coverage area they checked.)

I have my cobra hooked up to a 5 foot fiberglass antenna an when my friend goes down the road I can only hear him for a mile but when he is sitting next to me he is picking up from 40 miles away with him...


Use a 8.5 feet(102 inches) That would be the size of this whip. One thing to do put it up high in the air in 15,30,45 feet lengths. Have heavy grounding like 4 metal rods drove into earth 6 ft. use a tower and also ground it to a big metal filing cabinet or water pipes. I found that your Electric meter box is grounded real well. Use big low loss coaxial 50 ohm in the lengths 9,18,27,36. Your hearing is through sometimes ground planes. Lets say you use a tower or Tv pole 30 feet. Mount your 102" in. whip on top- seperate it from 4 ground prongs by rigging PVC pipe in between. Make 4 Ground planes about 5 feet go out North,East,South,West. Run 30 feet of coax to your house. It should pick up better an transmit better. Check SWR (1.5 or so) SWR Varies 1.1-2.1 ratios. I never had no problems talking on mine 5 to 30 miles away. Turn up receive inside radio. Its near front ; may be white variable or chrome with screwdriver slot. Take speaker side off and look near left handside front when radio is upside down.

Need a power cord for a boston computer speaker set #BA745 where can i get one


If you live within the United States, you may be able to go to BestBuy or Radio Shack to get a similar power cord that will power your speaker system. Just try to get an idea of the shape of the connector.

Speakers picking up tv or radio station when volumn is down


Well, sometimes these components can act like antennas. Do you live near a radio or tv station antenna? Or near a highway, or where truckers are near...might be CB'ers. Also, sometimes, in older houses with 2-prong only AC wall sockets. Also, yo don't want your speakers too close to your own TV, or cell phone, or computer itself, as this can cause interference to get into your speakers. Just some ideas.

I HAVE A Yamaha PSR 260. About 8 years old. Recently it became defective.: Only the display lights up . No sound. No response to any button. When volume control is turned, I can hear the faint rustle on...


This MAY be due to a key contact or button that is STUCK "on".

Often this will freeze the controller.

Make sure power adapter is the correct one... underpowered or incorrect ones cause trouble.

Radio Interferance on my logitech computer speakers


You may be now living too close to a radio station. Sometimes when this is the situation, anything electronic gear plugged into a wall socket can act like an antenna, thus receiving signals from local radio stations.

Audio output from digital radio failing


No solution I'm afraid! I have exactly the same problem! Did you work out how to fix it or what? This happened to our radio yesterday and I've pushed every button I can to try and sort it. I know the speaker works and is connected because I can hear a faint buzzing sound when the radio is switched on.

My Boston BA735 system does not work on new computer


Your sound card must have a digital output plug, which is generally yellow and says DIGITAL OUT. As far as I know its not digital-out with software but digital-out with hardware only. Find a picture of a SoundBlaster Live model number ct4780 and see that it has 5 plugs plus a joystick connection. On this particular card the yellow is the DIGITAL OUT plug.
