generally this is due to ground problem, signal gnd and power gnd need to be separate (i faced the same problem even i dint do anything from hardware side .. don ask me hw it happned).. open the volume controller u will find a small PCB (printed circuit board) with volume control ,LED and a connector. see at the back side of the voume control u will see five pins starting from right side short 1st and fourth pin. provided you connect ground of both cables which goes inside the volume controller.. it works for me.. you may experiment as i did...

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.

SOURCE: Hello,

robert_cobb

Creative used to sell the replacement volume controls on there site but I guess they stopped selling them.

So what I would do is select your product at http://support.creative.com/

Then click on Contact Us

Next click on My problem is not listed

This will get you to email support. Send them an email stating that you need a replacement volume control and powersupply. They will ether refer you to Customer Service or to the RMA department to get a replacement.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I am having problems adjusting volume


What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

look on the lower right corner of your screen. there should be a volume icon down there. it looks like a speaker. click that and see if it is set up or down low. if it is low turn it up then it should work. this controls the amount of sound coming out of the sound card on your computer.

My polk audio speakers from a prior hp computer are very, very quiet on my new compaq system. what can i do?


The audio setting in your new computer is set to low level. Right click on the speaker button at the right hand bottom corner of your task bar,Then open the volume control from there. push the slider up in the volume control and also on the wave.You can push the slider up for the CD player as well as PC speaker also if any of these are also kept at a low level. If you do not have a speaker icon in the task bar, open control panel,(click on start and you will see the control panel selection, double click on it) and double click on sound and audio devices. Under device volume, push the slider from low to high. while you are here you can click on "place volume icon in the task bar" You can also click "advanced" and select the appropriate speakers here, like desktop stereo speakers or surround sound or whatever suits your speaker. click ok to save this and that is it.

Hp Pavillion a1140n suddenly has very low sound...


chances are this is a windows sound setting. in the system tray (bottom right by the clock) right click the speaker icon and select 'Open Volume Control' you will see a series of sliders. Check and make sure none are set low. about 3/4 up for each should be fine.

Other things to check:
Speaker Cables, Speaker Volume, power to speakers.
