Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers
I have just hooked up the creature 2 speakers to a portable tv and dvd player using the white and red jack, leads but cannot get any sound coming out of the speakers when the tv or dvd player are on.Any suggestions for this?
If you do not have 3.5mm earphone jacks so you can use this same RCA jack but this you had to connect with the audio amplifier and after that you will get sound.

The RCA set on a tv [Red /White /Yellow] are INPUT[ VCR/DVD player] not out put. Hook the speakers up the the 3,5mm earphone jack though you will need a conveerter plug like this

I had a problem with the speakers not working properly. The green lights lit, but the amount of sound coming from the speakers compared to that of the sub was much lower.
I decided to take it the speakers apart.
I found that the magnets on the speakers had moved forward slightly in the plastic cage they sat in. I pushed them back as far as they would go, and Hey Presto! working again!
I hope this helps someone!

Thanks to cagamba for his discovery. I thought for a while I had bought a lemon. Touch the audio plug outlet at the back of the computer with one hand and touch the volume control with the other hand. It really works.

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...
I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).
This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.
Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)
