Left speaker stopped working

Q: Left speaker stopped working

I was playing a video game and the left speaker on my laptop just stopped working all of a sudden, I wasn't even sure it stopped working at first, but as i started turning around in the game i noticed the stereo being gone. After about a week it turned on for a minute or so and stopped working again. I tried messing with the balance in windows, nothing happens, i tried using AIMP and If i balance it to the left speaker the right one just becomes quieter. I'd appreciate any help, thank you.

I have had a 5.1 speaker arrangement on my Vista x64 PC for some time. Today, the front left speaker decided to stop working correctly. When trying to plug my headphones in to a rear jack on my motherboard (onboard sound), I noticed that sound was only coming through the right earphone. I decided to give up with trying to listen through my headphones for the time being and plugged my speakers back in, only to find that now my front left speaker wasn't working correctly. I tried to adjust the balance on my speakers, as I thought I could hear a whisper of a sound through the front left.
The front left speaker is producing sound, but at a greatly reduced volume to the rest of the speakers, I have to set the balance to the following to make FL and FR speakers 'the same' volume (by ear).
FL volume: 100
FR volume: 0
I have my speakers plugged in to 3 jacks on my motherboard (out of 6).
The green jack for FL and FR.The black jack for RL and RR.The orange jack for C and SubW.I have been unsucessful installing Realtek (which is a shame, because on my last motherboard I was able to solve the problem with that somehow, but I can't remember how) as it states the drivers are not supported. Which I'm assuming means my motherboard doesn't support it.
My motherboard is an MSI Intel p35 Neo.
I have had this setup working fine for around a month.My speakers are labtec (but I don't see how that would matter).I am currently using the normal drivers that come with Vista.Any ideas?

My right speaker and the big thing its on is working fine but my left speaker is not working, which means i cant hear anything just a buzzing sound. How do i fix this problem?

A:Left speaker not working

I assume you have a 2.1 speaker system (two small speakers and one bass speaker). First thing, check the connection to the PC. If the plug is not fully inserted or not making good contact you could only get one channel. Reseat the plug (unplug then plug back in making sure it's fully inserted). Same way check the other end of the cable at the speaker system (probably goes to the bass speaker). If that is not the problem, it sounds like either a bad internal speaker system connection or a defective speaker system. If it's a defective speaker system and you are still under warranty contact HP or the speaker vendor, if it's not in warranty look for a new speaker system as they are not repairable.

Hi UMSid,
May I know the media player you are using (Windows Media Player/VLC etc) ?What happens when you connect a pair of headphones? Does the sound come from both ways?
. I would suggest a clean re-installation of the audio drivers.

Open Device Manager (Start -- Control Panel -- Device Manager).
Expand Sound, video and game controllers, right click and uninstall both the drivers listed 
From the drop down menu, select “Uninstall”.
Ensure to check the box “Delete driver software for this device”.
Restart the computer.
Then check for the Audio drivers in Control Panel -> Add or Remove programs, possibly Realtek might be mentioned, uninstall the driver.
Restart the computer
Now re-install the latest drivers from the following link http://dell.to/154D42D
Restart the computer and check the functionality.

Hi there, I have a X1 Carbon purchased last month and predominatly use it on a docking station and thus use external speakers connected to the docking station. When away from home, I usually always have head phones in to listen to music; so I only noticed this problem recently when I was trying to play a slideshow for a presentation without any spearkers connected. My issue is that the left side internal speaker does not work -- nothing plays.  Only the right speakers work, with weird "crackling" sounds when playing.  It uses the Conexant Smart Audio...and I have reinstalled the latest driver, and also made sure that the audio levels are not only set to the right speaker -- I can put 100% for left audio, and make right audio 0% and absolutely nothing can be heard--it's only the right speaker that anything can be heard. Help?  Thank you in advance.

Hi,
I have just brought a nice little set of pc desktop speakers by creative labs, with a left and right speaker plus a little subwoofer.
The sound is excellent except the right speaker is not working, now as you will know that is the one that the power runs through .
Now i wondered if the connection at the back of my pc was loose or dodgey so i had a little play. weird thing happened. if i pull the green connector about 1/4 the way out i lose the subwoofer but regain the right speaker..(so i know its working)
If i push it back in properly i lose the right but regain the subwoofer.
Now i brought new speakers because i thought we had blown the right speaker on the original one we had with the computer.
But it seems that there is some sort of setting? maybe... I have checked the usual ones in sound and audio and it all seems to be balanced correctly.

Can anyone suggest a way to get both speakers and woofer working.
(I also went in to advance settings and selected stereo desktop speakers...)
I did notice it had a tab for 5.1 but not 2.1 which these are would that make a difference)
Sorry to be dense...
but with the speakers seeming to be ok, and the pc seeming to be ok... i'm stumped...

A:Problem with the left speaker not working

Hello. Test the problem this way.
1. Plug in headphones into the headphone jack and listen. You want to find out if the problem is only with the speakers or more widespread.
2. If you hear sound in both sides of the headphones, but, when you unplug them, in only one side of the speakers, test the speakers by running the ePSA audio test.
> Re-start the computer and tap the F12 key as soon as it starts to boot up. If the computer boots to Windows re-start the computer and try again.
> Select 'Diagnostics' from the boot menu, then press the Enter key. The ePSA tests should open.
> Look for a "Perform Quick Audio Check" button on the bottom right side of the ePSA main menu screen. Press the button and listen for the beep tones from the speakers.

The Quick Audio Check is a hardware test. If you do not hear the tones through the left speaker during the test then the speaker has failed or become disconnected. Contact tech support if the speaker fails the test.
3. If the speaker passes the test (if you hear tones through it) but still no sound through it when you boot back into Windows, then there is a software problem. Try re-installing your audio driver. Open the Device Manager and expand the Sound....Controllers category. Find the Realtek High Definition Audio Device and right click on it to open the context menu. Select to "uninstall" but do not check the box to "remove the software for this device". Restart the laptop and Windows ... Read more

Everything was fine before. if i plug in any other speakers or headphones, it all works fine. it is not a computer problem because right speaker isn't working even if i plug them into an MP3, radio... maybe the problem is the connection between the left and the right speaker, because the cable is on the left side.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
At this point the problem could be hardware or operating system related. 
 
If you plug in a set of headphones is the sound present in each ear?  If no, then try reinstall the audio drivers to see if that corrects the problem. If yes, worse case scenario is that either the speaker is dead or the speaker cable is no longer fully seated in its socket.

I tried the diagnostic.. and it looks like the left speaker is not working and the right is doing that awful sound like a crackle or rattle sound. Using the bass makes it worse.  I used to have perfect stereo sound with nice bass  using Realtek Sound system configuration and Maxx waves.

If you want to perform another test to make sure, run the audio test in the ePSA utility (or PSA on some models).

Hi. The sound suddenly stopped working in one of my speakers. However, it's not the speaker's fault. When I switched the ports in the back of my subwoofer, I discovered that both speakers did in fact work. So I figured that maybe that port on my sub was what's causing the problem. But, I plugged my headphones into my sound card, and discovered that music was only coming out of the left ear of my headphones as well. Futher, my speakers are plugged into the front port of my computer (through integrated audio i'm assuming, as it's attached directly to the motherboard) and my headphones were plugged into my soundcard in the back of my computer. So I figure that eliminates the soundcard being the problem. My last resort was drivers. I disabled, re-enabled, uninstalled drivers, reinstalled drivers, and tried a driver rollback as well. None of which solve the problem. Any thoughts?

Edit: Issue was just resolved by switching my speakers to the soundcard and headphones to front port. Anyone know why that fixed it though?
 

A:Sound stopped working in one speaker

Because your front audio ports are by design to be used for headphones and microphone. When you plug something into them they interrupt the signal to the back audio jack. My guess is the subwffr jack wasn't quite in all the way or didn't make perfect connection and it let 1 channel to front and 1 channel to rear.

Any suggestions?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 5559 Audio - Right Speaker has low volume while the left speaker functions normally

Hello.You didn't mention the headphone jack, so if you have not yet done so, plug in headphones and see if the balance is okay in them. If the headphones check out okay, then most probably it's a problem related to the speakers.
The test for speakers is the ePSA audio test. It is a hardware test, which means that if the test  tones are very low in the right speaker, but normal in the left speaker, then there is hardware failure somewhere, related to the right speaker.
If both speakers sound normal during the test, then the problem is in the software. Do the usual things like re-install the audio driver, check the balance levels in the Sound properties, try different audio sources, etc.
Re-installing the audio driver resets the settings to their default configurations, so if you do it then you don't have to bother with things like volumes and balance settings, because they will be okay.(Also if the balance is okay through headphones, then it should be okay through the speakers too.)
Here is how to do a simple driver re-install:
1.    Open the Device Manager.2.    Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer.

I have a Logitech wireless laser mouse and use rechargeable AA batteries. The other morning i powered on my computer as usual and tried using my Logitech wireless mouse but left click didn't work (although rt click and mouse movement continued working just fine)

> Reinstalling Logitech Setpoint and mouse drivers
> Reinstalling Logitech USB transceiver firmware
> Pressing the "reconnect" button on the USB transceiver to reconnect transceiver to wireless mouse
> Changed the mouse batteries a couple times and also tried recently recharged batteries

Then i had a hunch (well, it was really more of a last ditch hopeful guess - but it seems to have worked!)
I removed the batteries and let the mouse sit overnight without any battery inside it. When i put batteries back in the next morning, the mouse has been working fine again ever since. Go figure :stickout:

If the volume is low everything works fine, but once you turn it up using the volume button, the left speaker stops working. This only happens when I use the button, and not when I adjust the system sound.

I tested it with the audio configuration, and I can hear what's supposed to be the left speaker sound coming from the right speaker. Once again this is only if the volume button is turned up high enough, and it works just fine otherwise.

Another strange thing is that everything not only works right when the volume is low enough, but also when it's high enough. So the problem is not that the left speaker can't handle that much sound or something. It's only in the middle where this problem occurs. Does anyone have an idea what's going on?

Popping noise from left speaker. Sometime after starting the computer, sometimes as long as an hour later (sometimes after using an application with sound), a popping noise will start coming from the left speaker in about 5 or 10-second intervals. For a moment, it cuts the sounds coming from that speaker. Sometimes with 4 or 5 second intervals of no poping. Sometimes poping every 2-seconds. This happens regardless of earphones being plugged in or not. Plugging in earphones diverts all regular sound to the earphones, except the left-speaker popping noise. Unplugging the earphones often stops the popping sound for a while; sometimes it won?t.I see others are having the same problem, as shown on your HP Support Forum:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Audio/34a150-popping-noises-from-speakers/m-p/5941868#M56112

On my Old PC, I had no crackling problems in 7. With my new mobo I do. I have also installed the Asus mobo chipset drivers under compatability mode (wouldn't work otherwise)

So basically I've temporarily run out of ideas, however I'm leaning to a mobo chipset issue. Any ideas?

Hey guys,

Just for reference, I am running Windows XP Home, SP2

For the longest time, only my left speaker (and the bass speaker) played sound. If I turned it up really loud and put my ear close, I could hear sound coming from the right speaker.

So I just figured the left speaker was broken. Found some different speakers around the house, plugged those in, and same thing. Only the left speaker works.

I have tried numerous things. When I put a headphone set into the speaker jack in the comp, the right ear is all distorted and soft. I have checked my speaker settings to make sure they are set to Desktop Stereo. I have opened Volume Control and made sure everything is balanced.

I have no idea what to do now because obviously it is not the speakers themselves that are the problem.



Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Nick

I got a new 17 r4 a little over a month ago and have noticed that the left speaker has always sounded rather tinny.  Today I decided to mess with the balance and see if it was just me being weird or if something actually sounds off and it's definitely an issue.  The left speaker has zero bass compared to right speaker.  I realize that due to them being laptop speakers the drivers are very small but the difference in audio is pretty substantial.  I've made sure that I don't have any kind of audio enhancements happening so it isn't a software issue.  Also, when headphones are plugged in via the 3.5mm jack audio is totally normal.  It almost sounds as if the speaker is damaged. Any help would be much appreciated!

Is there a way to do this please help.

A:How do I run all my sound through just my left speaker

You can configure through the sound manager application of your system. For instance, if your system uses a Realtek HD Audio, you can configure the speaker using Realtek HD Audio Manager.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed I was only getting sound from the left speaker. I have a 3 piece altec lansing speaker system (2 speakers and one sub). I could make sound come from both speakers if I pulled the cord going from the computer to the sub out of the sub a little bit, but it was just the sound coming from the left side being played on both sides, so I was still missing sound supposed to be playing on the right side. I just bought another set of the same exact speakers, and the same thing thing is happening, so I'm assuming there's something I need to do with the computer, not sure what though. I have a soundblaster live sound card, any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Only getting sound from left speaker

Open the volume control and make sure that all of the balance controls are in the middle.

Hi people,
I have this HP pavillion dv6516 with OS: windows vista home premium..bought it bout 1 yr back
initially the sound from the speakers wa OK, but after using it for a few months, a scratching sound started to come out of the left speaker when I play music or listen to some audio files(CD, Youtube anything).
Then I took it to the HP service centre...They attached external speakers to my laptop n the scratching noise came from them as well..the guy there told me that the speakers are alright n the prob is in the driverand told me to reload the whole OS,which I did,but no use....I have uninstalled and re-installed the driver for the realtek audio system a couple of time,but no use.....
Kindly help with the prob
the noise is so irritating

Hi,

I cant get any sound from my left speaker. I tried another set of speakers and the same thing occurs. If I use the front audio, I get sound from both though. I reinstalled the drivers, and it does not resolve.

This leads me to believe that there is something wrong with the back connection or something.

I use the onboard realtek audio on my MAX3 mobo.

Thanks

Hello,

I just bought a new PC which has AC97 sound drivers (S755MAX Motherboard). All the mixers are fine and I have tested all the my headphones, seems like there is no right side sound signal.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
