first of all try to replace the audio cable. if it has break inside then the same problem can occur. replace the cable and check the same.
if then also the problem remains. i think you are connected the cable to the R mono input. remove it from R mono input and connect the same to the L input.
there is no difference between the R and L input. if you connect it any input you will get the same out put.

If then also the problem remains then you have to replace the RCA socket in side you sub woofer. It will be difficult for you to replace the same. any way make a try.

How do you get audio to play through a receiver? We have the TV running to input on receiver and no sound?!?!

You have to go thru the menus on the TV and tell it you want TV speakers off, and output to surround at fixed volume. Then plug audio out wires (RCA jacks or optical digital wire) from audio outs on TV to AUX or Video or something like that into the receiver.

My HD 205 headphones broke last weekend, ive had them for four monthes and when i was listening to music on my ipod touch the headphones sounded like they weren't plugged in properley, i moved the wire...

It sounds like the wires around the jack have become frayed on the inside. If you were to open up the rubber casing around the wires, it would look exactly like that. This is normally caused by improperly wrapping the wires and by not being gentle when plugging them in and removing them. It could be caused by other things, such as electrical damage, but that is much more rare. If you have soldering experience and feel comfortable opening up the rubber casing and working on them, it's not too difficult. You would need to remove the bad portion of the wire and replace it. However, it is just as easy and cost-efficient to have them fixed at an audio repair shop. It should cost no more than $20. Hope this helps!

Can hear sound but no picture

You didn't mention what the source was or how it was connected or if you were using analog or digital connections.
It appears that the device (cable box, maybe??) is assigned to different inputs for audio and video.
The solution should be really simple.
Kind of odd for this to just "happen", but it might have something to do with static electricity or a small power surge. Your first remedy should be to unplug the H/K receiver for 30 seconds and plug it back in. This should reset any logic hiccup.

The AVR's manual will show you how to assign video inputs and audio inputs to specific devices. You'll do this differently, depending on what cables you are using and how you have set up the source device, but the instructions do tell you how to make this work.
Basically, you'll need to know what button on the AVR you want to use to select this source. Then in the AVR's menu, you'll need to tell the receiver which of its inputs should be selected when that source button is pressed. Look closely at the back of the receiver and see where you have connected the cables. Your solution might be to simply move the audio and or video cables on the back of the receiver to jacks with the same labels!
For instance, if the video cables are connected to the receiver's video-1 jacks and the audio cables are connected to its video-2 jacks, just make them both the same.

the make and model of your computer dont matter to what speakers you hook up. i can take those speakers and plug them into my ipod, my computer, even my psp and will work.

i would first check ALL wiring and make sure is all conected corectly.

try plugging them into your ipod/mp3 and see if you hear sound? if not, its the speakers. If yes lets move on.

Plug them into your audio jack on your computer (THE BACK, Green audio Jack) usually your front audio jack if you have one is set to head phones and your rear audio jack is set to speakers.

Plug them in.

Go to Start, Control Panel, Sound.

Now make sure your speakers are conected and it notices it.

Me i have 3 Input devices that show up.

1) Speakers
2) Headphones or Audio 2nd Output
3) Digital Output

If you plug them into the back they will most likely but under #1.

Click Option #1 or the one that is labeled speakers and says "plugged in"

Towards the bottom select, Set As Default.

Apply Changes, Ok, and exit.

Now try listening to something on your computer.

If this still doesnt work, let me know.

Speaker hook up


It is my hope that I can help. This applies to the type of sound card on your PC.

- If you have a 2-channel sound card: Select 2 on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the green plug from the audio input cable to tyhe front jack on your PC sound card. With this input setting, your speakers will upmix the 4-channel signal and create a center signal for your speakers.

- If you have a 4-channel sound card: Select '4' on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the colored jacks on the audio input cable to the jacks on your PC sound card, making sure to match the colors.

- If you have a '6'-channel sound card: Select '5-1' on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the colored jacks on the audio input cable to the jacks on your PC sound card, making sure to match the colors.

Your sound card is located on the back of your PC Tower.

Good luck

Loose jack on subwoofer -- fixable?

Hi, since you pinpointed the problem, the correct solution would be to replace it. However, if you want to try a temporary remedy, try using a glue gun to put glue around the jack's outer housing while connected to the back panel. Make sure that the glue dries in the correct position (where there is sound from the satellites). It is possible that the sound waves produced by the subwoofer loosens the connection. It might also be helpful if you lock the cable in place so that it will move so much and strain the jack. Regards.

I only hear sound out of two speakers........

Have you set the computer up for 4.1 speakers in the audio software? Go to start control panel and click on sound's speech and audio device's, then click on sound's and audio device's. A window should pop up with a load of menus at the top, click on the one that says volume. Where it says speaker settings click on the advanced button. Click on the menus until the picture lookslike your system you have.
