Having problems with your Harman Kardon Computer Speakers ?

I own the original Harmon Kardon Soundsticks, and haven't used them in quite a while. I believe I have plugged everything in (the light is on in the Subwoofer), but when I plug in the Auxilary cable into my Macbook Pro's Headphone jack, there is no sound at all. When I go to sound preferences, it reads the plug as Headphones (which I think is correct), and I made sure the volume is up on the speakers. What can I do?


Answers :

Hello sir, Hi Let us review first the setup of your harmon,

\015\012If the setup is correct then;
\015\012
\015\012Unplug your baby plug audio cable, now lookinh at the plug you should see three terminals, outer and the middle are for left and right, and the inner is for ground, that cable is compatible to any mp3 player.
\015\012
\015\012If you have one try it first there to see if the trouble is the harmon. If there is no music comming out, you may have an open audio wire, try replacing it. If there is music comming out, then we need to check now the head phone slot, this time use any ordinary PC speaker or headset.
\015\012
\015\012Is there sound comming out. If there are no sound comming out. check for mute or sound levels set to low. Adjust them. test again. At this point we probably know where the problem is. If there is sound comming out, there is a problem with the harmon.
