Have you tried with headphones?  Scratchy WITH heaphones. Reinstall driver. If it's NOT scratchy with headphones.  Either your speakers are blown, (which usually doesn't happen), you need to reinstall your sound card drivers, or bad settings.  Double click sound horn. Turn some volumes haflway, or mute sound channels you aren't using. Options Properties will let you show ALL sound properties. Ctrl+S makes the sound properties half size.
ReInstall Drivers: Start - Settings - Control Panel - System - Device Manager, Expand Sound Controllers, Right Click on your sound card, Click Uninstall.  Reboot and reintall.  
Might ask to reinstall automatically.  Thats fine.  Install then reboot.  I prefer to cancel the install until I have rebooted.  But both ways tend to work.  
Hope you don't have to change your speakers.  Need to pull your mobo to get to em. Instructions here pg. 5-55

sounds like an internal connection problem. open access panel and check the solder connection is not broken or loose. Be sure the metal mesh jacket is not touching the lead wire as that would cause a scratchy noise and feedback, or maybe near the internal cable causing feedback

Blown/scratchy speaker


Based upon your brief description, it sounds like the internal speaker itself has worn out (likely cause) or possibly the internal speaker wire(s) may become disconnected or may be shorting out.

LeapFrog has discontinued product support of our "Learn & Groove" Musical Table with green legs that was made in 2010. LeapFrog Customer Service declined to discuss replacement parts, so I searched eBay for an exact speaker replacement.

BTW, I am not affiliated in any way with the eBay seller nor do I work for LeapFrog... I'm a Computer Engineer/Geek in Cincinnati, Oh trying to solve a simple toy problem. All opinions expressed are solely my own and do represent any technical guidance from the original equipment manufacturer.

Correct replacement speakers are available on eBay and ship from Hong Kong... I just bought qty2 of these speakers for $5.69 total inc s/h/p (only 1 was needed). Delivery time was slow, but well worth the wait...

When the replacement speakers arrived, I had to take off the back panel screws and unsolder the original speaker, so I could resolder in the single replacement speaker under the 2" black cover. The "Learn & Groove" Musical Table speaker now works great!

Some forum posts say that resoldering a computer modem speaker (16ohm .25w) could be used, but this is a temporary solution at best. The replacement speaker from Hong Kong produces a better quality sound and more sound volume when used with the "Learn & Groove" Musical Table.

The speaker replacement specs for the LeapFrog "Learn & Groove" Musical Table with Green Legs are as follows:

"Round Aluminum Shell Magnetic Type Slim Speaker Horn"
.25 watt
Resistance 16 Ohm
Type Internal Magnetic, Slim
Shape Round
Bottom Diameter 20mm/ 0.8"
Outer Diameter 35mm/ 1.4"
Height 9mm/ 0.35"
Material Aluminum, Metal, Plastic

This replacement speaker worked great for me and now my Granddaughter can again enjoy her toy that I was able to fix!

My compaq presario f700 producing a strange noise from the speakers,and the sound quality is compromised.What could be the problem?


You could be having issue with the speakers the connection or the sound card. I would try another set of external speakers and go from there if this does not work replace the driver if this does not happen you may have a board issue. John

Suddenly my speaker volume is low and scratchy


Congrats, you yourself is a good troubleshooter. Just pinpointed your problem. What you just diagnoist can be easilly checked just by taking other good known speaker. If that works your speaker is short check for audio output wires. If not your card needs replacement. If need further clarifications just comment.

Trying to fix an old record player - Califone. It seems to be making a scratchy sound even though I have replaced the needle. It almost sounds like when the two wires from a speaker touch... same...


May be the "winding" on the speaker. If it has got damp at some point(you may not notice any on the casing) the cardboard tube that the coil is wound around swells and "rubs" in the speaker. Thus producing a scratching sound. Try connecting to another speaker, just to test and if it sounds fine then that is what it is.
