Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks Computer Speakers
My H/K speakers just stopped working; at first the volume was really low, but then they stopped playing altogether (though if you hold it to your ear, you can hear a faint "shaaaa" noise). I know it's not just the tweeters, as the sub has stopped working as well. I've tried plugging it into a variety of different sources, and have tried it at every powerpoint in the house, all with the same result. I bought these back in August '05, will I be better off just buying a new set, or trying to have them repaired? Thanks
Take the speakers apart and it could be something as simple as a loose wire, that was what it was for me thankfully!!!!!!

You will need to take the speaker apart and with an ohm meter or continuity tester, measure the resistance of the speaker, at the two terminals at the rear of the speaker magnet, to see if that circuit is "open" ("open" is a reading of no resistance, or no continuity). If it is open, you have no choice but to replace the speaker. If instead the speaker measures a low resistance, or the meter "beeps" to indicate continuity, then do the following: measure the resistance/continuity of the wires which lead from the speaker magnet, to the output terminals on the outside of the speaker box. Also, some speaker manufacturers install small fuses inside their speakers. Even if the fuse does not look "blown", test it for resistance/continuity. Good Luck!
