Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers

Strange sound in one of my Creature speakers

I've had the Creature Speakers for over a year and love them. A few weeks ago, the left speaker (one without the volume buttons) suddenly started to emit a strange electronic pulsing sound...very rapid...sounds sort of like someone tapping morse code. It lasts for several minutes...there doesn't seem to be anything that sets it off. It just starts suddenly and It's very annoying. I tried uplugging the speaker from the base and plugging it back in, but that didn't stop it. Anyone have a suggestion as to what it is and/or what I can do to stop it. Thanks!

One speaker no sound

I just want to confirm that the solution on another page from francis 8 works perfectly ( ). We have two sets of Creatures in our offices, one had been shelved (by someone less persevering than me) due to this problem years ago and my set started this trouble a few days ago. Troubleshot everything, every cable, setting, combination, spare speakers etc - nothing worked. Opening the offending speaker and pulling back the metal weight behind the speaker cone was the solution for BOTH of our units.
Big smiles all around :-)
Note - When you've opened the plastic shell and loosened the speaker from its mounting, the the big round metal piece/magnet sits within the actual speaker 'cage', slightly behind the speaker cone. It's tight but movable and can be pulled all the way back as far as it can go inside it's housing, away from the speaker cone.
Not sure why it gets pulled forward, but it isn't fixed in position and so could clearly get bumped by dropping the speaker or a reasonable impact of some sort. Once bumped forward it would severely limit cone movement and therefore volume.

Headphones and speakers are in mono

Sounds like the jack on the computer is worn, dirty or bent therefore not making good contact with the plugs. The solution is to replace the jack, which is labor intensive- mostly to get to it inside the case and then you need the part (jack) Soldering may be necessary.

JBL Creature Speakers have very low volume

I had the same problem. Then I read about the volume controls on the right speaker. They are silver buttons for me on the front bottom left and right of the speaker. Now they play really loud!

Sound problem with JBL Creature II

I had a problem with the speakers not working properly. The green lights lit, but the amount of sound coming from the speakers compared to that of the sub was much lower.
I decided to take it the speakers apart.
I found that the magnets on the speakers had moved forward slightly in the plastic cage they sat in. I pushed them back as far as they would go, and Hey Presto! working again!
I hope this helps someone!
