Question about Cambridge Soundworks MusicWorks 400 CD Shelf System
I have an older Cambridge "Soundworks" Digital speaker system connected to an older "Music Works" receiver. I have had this system for several years connected to my laptop and a Sirius Satellite cradle connected to the AUX jack. The laptop is connected directly to one of the input jacks on the subwoofer, the radio is connected the same way to the other jack on the subwoofer.
I have had no problems until recently. The symptom is that the volume suddenly goes really low, then using the connected Soundworks volume control I increase the volume, almost to the max. This will be ok until it suddenly goes really loud again.... This is very intermittent. I have checked all connections, including un-hooking everything and putting it back. I have also disconnected the laptop audio. Disconnecting the volume control, which connects to the subwoofer did not help either.
Using headphones with the jack on the front of the Music Works radio does not have this problem.
What could be causing this? Thanks in advance for your quick response.

A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.

Take it to a Tv repair shop to see they can do something, solder connections become bad, and may need a touch up.

Testimonial: "It's been a long time since I've even seen a TV repair shop. I may try to open it myself and see if I can find something loose. That may be easier than finding a repair shop"
