Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks II Computer Speakers
Pushing the + side to get the volume up, no longer works. there is sound; volume too low...used to work. speakers, new.
SOURCE: Volume control unresponsive
The LED didn't turn on ,indicate the DC pwr was missing , you need to ensure there is a Dc supply to the speaker unit,once you got the LED on you will be able to control the volum.

You seem to have uninstalled the driver for your soundcard, Identify the soundcard and find the drivers and install it back (Easier option is to get in touch with your hardware manufacturer) - Alternately : you can do a system restore to a date when it was working well. (on WinXP - Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore)

Hello frostyscoppe & micoh luv. I'm sorry to say that (like mine) they may have just 'packed in'! I had the same problem and contacted Harmon Kardon directly, They said there was a circuitry problem that couldn't be repaired and suggested I get the latest HK IIs. So I did and found these to be much more versatile and worth upgrading to. I thought my 'old' HDs were fine but sadly things aren't made to last like they used to be!!! If someone else is able to 'rescue' your originals I'd be very interested to hear their suggestions.

the noise is sometimes caused by dust in the volume control.
i would suggest blowing the dust out around the volume control if there is a manual control on the unit. use a small can of compressed air.. buy it at local walmart or computer store.

The hum (50 or 60 Hz) is caused by the AC power getting into the entry point of the amplifier. Either the filtering capacitors from the powersource of the speakers have dried up - replace them - or there is a short in the cables.
There is another possibility: if you have kicked the subwoofer box its transformer might have slipped from its fixings and now is touching the subwoofer speaker frame.
The only way to find which is to open the cases.
