I have a set of JBLspeakers that are about 40 years old. Set consists of a large dome speaker and two satellite smaller speakers. Have plugged them into the port of my PC and nothing happens. Have a power light showing.
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: JBL. I cannot find the model number.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: For about 1 month. I have checked the connections and the power light is on, indicating a good power supply.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: that's it

Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Have you tried connecting the speakers to any other device, to rule out a problem with the PC?

Do you have a voltmeter available to carry out some troubleshooting tests?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I connected the speakers to my iPhone and they did not function there either.
I do not have a voltmeter available.

Ok so the problem appears to be with the speakers...

If you have any test equipment available and plan to troubleshoot the problem yourself please let me know.

Otherwise please let me know your zip code and I can advise on a repair tech in your area..
