Having problems with your Harman Kardon HK19.5 Computer Speakers ?

Right speaker stops working

\015 The right speaker intermittently stops working (with increasing frequency). Fiddling with the cable that connects to the left cable seems to fix it, but only temporarily. That leads me to believe there's a loose connection inside. The trouble is, I just fought with it for a half hour and couldn't open the case! Any suggestions on how to get these open without cracking it permanently? My speakers are the black ones that Dell shipped with black laptops (same shape as the white ones, but a different color plastic).Thanks!\015

Answers :

A couple of years later, but maybe this will be useful to someone:
1. Disconnect the cables (input, power, 2nd speaker).
2. Undo the two screws on the base of the casing.
3. The two knobs can be pulled off. Underneath there are two nuts that hold the spindles to the casing. Undo these.
4. The fabric cover is a push fit. Prise it off the front. If needed, use a (non-metal) tool that won't damage the plastic casing.
5. Under the cover, the two top holes contain screws - undo these.
6. Four screws hold the actual speaker to the casing. The two lower ones are slightly longer and also hold the casing together. Note this for reassembly.
7. You can now gently part the front and rear parts of the speaker housing.
8. To completely separate the parts, you need to disconnect the red and black wires that go the the speaker. The are push fit 'spade' type connectors - a tight fit, but removable.

My problem is similar - loss of left channel. I think the problem is in the headphone socket as wobbling it or inserting non-conducting objects can temporarily restore the channel. These sockets switch off the speaker when you plug in the jack, so I think the switch is faulty. I plan to desolder this part to inspect, repair, replace or bridge the connection and do without the socket.

Hope that helps.

No sound Hi, Since about 3 weeks ago I have not had any sound on my laptop. I have tried the suggestions made to others but still no luck.

I tried to extend the length of my front right speaker (power/vol) by purchasing a male to female VGA extension cord. When I connected bothe cables together and then to the sub everything stopped working and system has not been able to POWER ON since. I have checked and the other four speakers work.
