Check the speaker if its okay, disconnect the left side one and connect the right side one and play. If it does not then the speaker is bad.

My Lenovo laptop has no sound (actually once in a great while I'll have sound). My speakers are at !00% level. I just checked my sound drivers and it says that they are working properly. What can I do to...

hi thre.

for this, you may want to go to your device manager page, then for sound devices, uninstall the sound driver again and restart your machine.

lenovo machines has a backup drivers on your machine that will auto install it for you back to default settings.

you can access device manager by click the START button, look for COMPUTER, right click it and choose properties then at the top left click on "device manager"

then click the arrow beside the sound title and right click to choose the option uninstall. then finally restart your machine

Loose sound to left side

I have the same EXACT problem. Most of the time only the right speaker plays and the left doesn't but when they both play its very distorted. I've tried everything. Resetting the ipod does not work and its not the ipod because when I use it on my fiance's avic-x910 its perfect. If I remove my head unit and play with the wires its fixed but only for a short while. I've soldered the connections so they are solid but I still have this issue. Any help?

Left side output

Sounds like there is a short somewhere on the left channel inside the amp. not easy to fix without seeing the unit.

Only hearing sound out of left side of headphones

i think the problem is in the jack of your sound blaster. since you have already tried different headphones and the problem still persist, and when you use speakers it works fine. i conclude it is the jack of your sound blaster card.

Sony Xplod 500w green power light no sound

try running the system with a cross-over configuration.

So your left + will be left + and your right + will be in the right + but put the right (-) where the left (-) is and left (-) where the right (-) is. If that doesnt work, then that means that you shorted out your audio out channels. the only way you can fix that is if you have good soldering skills. But other than that I'de say scrap it, unless you have the high outputs and then buy another amp, some mids and highs and connect the mids and highs to the xplod

Speakers not working proprerly

This may be in the sound card settings itself. Even though you may have adjusted the Windows settings {if thats what your using} the sound card needs to also be set up for surround. Some sound cards do not support 4 speakers or surround sound systems. Go to Device Manager and find your sound card and manufacture then check there technical support page for info.

Have you tried a different jack? It could be faulty.
