Question about Creative Labs DeskTop Theater DTT2200 Computer Speakers

Open Question

Volume erratic I'm not sure if it's the soundcard or speakers. The problem I have is erratic volume, sometimes muffled, other times blasting. Happens more after the computer is warmed up. I have a Creative SBLIVE Platinum 5.1 replacement card in transit. Once I get that I can be sure. Are the speakers themselves easily repaired, DIY?? I know enough about electronics to be dangerous, lol.

SOURCE: 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.

There are 2 volume controls on the audio output in windows 7. one is the system volume the other is the device volume. make sure that they are both at full and then control the sound volume on your speakers.

My problem is that the sound coming out of the speakers is muffled how can I fix it so the sound isn't muffled?


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
if his does not fix the problem
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the volume icon system select adjust volume

click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
(((the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer)))
hope this helps you

I just bought new cyber acoustics ca-2014 computer speakers from office depot,they do not work on either one of my computers it doesnt even recognize them hooked up,is there a download for my computer to...


1. Verify that the speakers are plugged into the correct jack on the soundcard.

2. Check volume on both the speakers as well as Volume properties on the computer. You may have mute checked or the volume turned down.

If neither of the above correct the problem, you may have an issue with your soundcard. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. If all else fails, you may have a faulty soundcard.

When someone call the phone the volume is low


the roller key on the side will adust the volume, i am sure you have tried this with no avail, however there is a little bit more to know. If you press and hold it until it shows the volume 'chart' then you can roll up and down this will adjust volume as well but on the other 'realm' sometime these phones are programmed backwards. The scenario i gave you should increase the volume of purhaps music or videos, and just using the roller it should increase call volume.
Now if neither of these methods work then i would suggest taking compressed air to the speaker, if metal filings gathered in there it will muffle the sound considerably

Erratic volume


Either the potentiometer which sits behind the user knob has got a broken track or it is full of debris

You can buy a tin of Servisol switch cleaner (or similar, make sure it has a lubricant in it and that propellant does not harm plastics) take off the knob and give it a good squirt where the spindle of the potentiometer enters the cabinet

Give the spindle a few full rotations and another dose of cleaner , then give it a try

It is best if you take a cover off and apply the cleaner direct to the potentiometer

Possible blown speakers


I have experience with that model of speakers. When they give up the ghost, the volume is VERY low. But just to be on the safe side, check the volume properties to make sure nothing is set too low. Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. Check the slider bars here, check in the Advanced area as well to make sure nothing is low and check the Speaker Volume as well. If all the bars are set to their maximum, it's time for some new speakers.

found them at last - they do exist! http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/details/US/EN,CRID=2173,CONTENTID=9817 try this next page (near the bottom): http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=7&p_created=1083624908&p_sid=NbWLjZvi&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9NzgmcF9wcm9kcz04NDQsMTcmcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PTIuMTcmcF9jdj0mcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1hbnN3ZXJzLnNlYXJjaF9ubCZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1 It appears that there is no associated software specifically for these speakers, they are a simple jack connection type - if they work on your walkman, but not on your pc then: the jack is either plugged into the wrong hole,or the volume is down in windows or in the application you are trying to hear or both (or on any special non-windows soundcard software).(ask again if you are unsure how to check this). Make sure your soundcard works by plugging in some headphones or speakers you know work. the only other thing i can think of worth checking is if you have used the headphone jack in the front of the speakers - this will cut the sound to the speakers by way of a small spring contact - sometimes this can get stuck open, but obviously not if they work on your walkman. maybe a bit of dirt got in there - just plug another jack in a couple of times to check. Also check if the volume control works fine when plugged in your walkman. Hope this gets you sounds :)
