Speakers fade in and out when listening to music

I have just recently moved my computer to a new residence, and now my speakers are not working properly. When I listen to music it fades in and out. It will go from the volume that I have it set at, to a lower volume, then back up. This is not something that happens right away, it takes a few minutes of listening. I would appreciate some feedback as to how I can fix this problem.

Re: Speakers fade in and out when listening to music

Ensure all connectors are properly inserted, then if you have a speaker mounted volume control, then run it back and forth rapidly about 100 times with power off. this will allow the tiny copper "wipers" contacts to brush off any accumulated dust.

One Speaker no longer works, its the one that plugs into the other, is it broken for good? or is there a way to take it apart and fix it?

Hi !
Most of the time there isn`t any problem with the speaker but with the cable connecting the 2 speakers .Try to listen some music and move the cable a little and maybe you`ll hear the sound coming out from the dead box .
The cable is not that hard to be replaced but you will need a new cable and a soldering tool, ( or someone who has one )
But the majority of the people are just buying a new set a speakers when one brokes because these are one of the cheapest parts that can broke on a computer...same for the mouse or keyboard , a good specialist can still fix it but it doesn`t worth it if you can afford new ones.

Hi Roxanne
Sounds as though the power-supply might be faulty. As you turn up the volume more power is required from the supply and it's not delivering - hence the light fading.

Radio Interferance on my logitech computer speakers

You may be now living too close to a radio station. Sometimes when this is the situation, anything electronic gear plugged into a wall socket can act like an antenna, thus receiving signals from local radio stations.

Alvan and The Chipmunks reside in my Gmax 2100 speakers!

If you have a sound card added on your motherboard, i suggest you uninstall the drivers, take off the sound card, attach it again and install the drivers.

If you connect your speakers through the motherboard itself, uninstall drivers and install them by searching C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers

Hope it helps!!!
