Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers

My speakers keep fading in and out

I'd be playing a game, or a movie and the sound/volume would fade out for a period of time and then pop back again.

It would be great to get some insite on this.

    Same problem here. Seems that a lot of people are having problems with these speakers, leading me to believe that there is a massive hardware flaw in the design of these speakers. The annoying thing is that you never know when the volume change will occur. Sometimes it is right after you turn them on, sometimes a few hours later. Very annoying if listening to music quietly late at night just to have them start blasting and having me jump out of my chair.

    My speakers keep going completely off then popping back on at high volume suddenly. Going off, coming back on, going off and on. What can I do to fix it?

  • Jivix May 25, 2009

    Hey it's me again. I completely gutted the subwoofer assembly. My theory is that since the subwoofer doesn't get that great of airflow, and so perhaps the amplifier chips are overheating. Most of them were connected to heatsinks, but 2 weren't. I connected them to the heatsinks with copper wire and solder, and mounted a fan on the top of the case to draw out the flaming hot air. It reduced the base about 40% but the air inside of the case got up to about 150°F at least so it was worth it. I thought the problem was fixed but it just started doing it again after a month of use. I have a feeling it may have to do with the crummy center speaker assembly. Hopefully its just a problem with the volume knob.

TRY THIS :

Right click the speaker icon on the taskbar
Click "Playback Devices"
You should get a screen titled "Sound"
Click the communication tab
There is a set of radio buttons titled: "When windows detects communication activity:"

Select the "Do Nothing" option.

Edit: The issue was present for me if the mic was on or not. A little concerning to say the least...

This fixed the issue for me. Hope it helps someone else.

I am having the same problem with mine. Tried re-installing the sound drivers but that didn't make a difference. Took out all the screws in back to see if there was a loose wire, but couldn't get the center speaker apart....

I have sound and the picture pops up right when the tv starts up but then fades to a very very light color (almost totally black) and volume continues.


Back - light problem indeed. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

Some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

Connected PC to LG with HDMI. Wonderful pic but NO sound. PC HDMI audio test works great and sound is clear thru TV. When movie is played from PC to TV there is no sound.


How do you get HDMI out to tv, through a graphics card? Is Is it HDMI direct out of the card or DVI adaptor? I believe you will get a ping even if the volume is turned down and when playing a movie you would have volume control throuh the DVD player, the computer and the tv. Make sure your volume is turned up on dvd player and right click on your speaker icon in taskbar, at lower right of screen and make sure that volume is up. When you do the ping are you checking a "HD" audio driver. Look in 'device manager" in "sound audio and game controllers" and right click on "HD" devices and make sure they are enabled. Let me know what happens. When you look at devices in device manager you also may see a warning. If so click on the symbol, ? ,!, or triangle and follow proceedure.

AVR SR6004 switches off while BD player is playing. What do I do?


Hi,
There are two circumstances that I know of that a properly installed unit such as your Marantz would shut down. So here is the Theory and Data I know of.
A Your receiver has a great deal of amplification power. If it is in a closed cabinet without excellent ventilation, it will shut down if used at high volumes because because over heating. Because of it's very high power, when played loudly, it generates excessive heat.
When watching certain movies the BD player may be over-driving the limits of the amplifier section of your receiver. Page 78 of your owner's manual addresses this. Here is a link to download the manual from Marantz.
http://us.marantz.com/us/Support/Pages/Manuals.aspx
B There is one other very important thing I should mention to you. When people use high powered equipment and initially turn up the sound. After a short time, the mind turns it down. What next happens is the reason professional musicians and sound engineers often have permanent hearing loss after a relatively short time.
What tends to happen is that the listener and often the engineer running the sound mixing board at a concert(after a certain period of time) believes the sound is not loud enough when it really IS loud enough. (this tricks the audience as well) and engineer turns it up. After turning it up, his mind (and the audiences') turns it down mentally and they again think and agree that it not loud enough and then again, the volume level is turned up. And up. And up. The only reason I'm not deaf is that I discovered this when I was building sound systems as a kid. I also studied about it. So please be careful when you play things loud. Permanent hearing loss starts to occur at the very high frequencies and rolls down from there over a period of time. Hearing loss can start to occur in just a few hours at 110 decibels. permenant hearing loss is exactly just that. Permenant! It just doesn't come back. If you use this information, you will enjoy hearing music for the rest of your life.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Radio continues to fade in and out, plays for awhile fades out


Need more information on this if possible.

It may be the speed volume is enabled on your radio, does it fade out when you start to come to a stop? Some vehicles have a speed volume setting in their radios in which the radio raises and lowers the volume during driving conditions, like when your comming to a stop, the volume will automatically lower and during faster driving speeds will rise to a higher volume.

Hope this helps

Picture faded to black, came back, faded again and had stayed black.


It seems your set has a loose conection in the high voltage circuits,in fact by now it should have many loose conections in different areas like the power supply and the horizontal deflection circuits,if you are familiar with tv service you can use the information as the first step to take,some of the loose conections are hard to see even for the trained technician but the one giving you this problem should not be hard to see,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance from a servicer a least for an estimate.
