Lost all audio from my Soundsticks after a couple of months. Turned out to be a dodgy connection with the multipin I think. Disconnected everything and put it back together with no strain on the wires and it's been fine eversince

I had the same problem—the sound on my Harman Kardon soundsticks cut out for no apparent reason. I could hear them very quietly playing but adjusting the volume did nothing. It turned out one of the pins inside the connector that attaches the speaker with the volume controls to the subwoofer was bent so it wasn't plugging in properly. I straightened it with pliers and everything works again! Just wanted to share a permanent fix, since I almost unnecessarily trashed my speakers.

Perhaps this is really obvious but what has helped me was checking if the volume on one of the speakers is turned on. Somehow (aliens) the volume of the speakers was turned down and I couldn't hear a thing. After pushing the plus button repeatedly I could hear music again.

You're a life saver! Can't believe I didn't notice the little + and - symbols on the right soundstick! Bought these secondhand so no manual. Thanks again.
