Question about Durabrand 5.1 Surround Sound Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Static in the sound

I bought these speakers (because they were cheaper....probably should have bought the higher ones after another shopper told me that had a lot of static) at Wal-Mart today. I hooked them up and immediately had static & noise. How can I fix it or can I fix it??

The static is called "line noise". It happens when there is not a lot of protection between the copper wiring that carries the signals and the outside. One way for manufacturers to save money is to put just a very thin piece of protection around the copper wires, with no insulation. Just copper wiring and a thin piece of rubber or plastic. So that is why you hear the static noise, the wires are cheaply made and cannot keep out the signals they interfere with it...hence the cheap price. Wal Mart is good about giving refunds, bring it back and get a better made system. It might cost a little more but the sound will be what you enjoy.

    Yep, that's a fact. Now if you find a good sale on a brand name electronics or computer accesories that's one thing, but buying a cheap brand always goes back to the old saying "You get what you pay for"...thanks for the rating I appreciate it.

One of the computer speakers I just bought doesn't work. Altec Lansing vs2620. The sound is so faint you can not hear it. How can I troubleshoot this?


try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty or
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps you

Hi - I've just bought a hanns.g Hl225 monitor with (apparently) no speakers. Would it be cheaper to change the monitor or buy some speakers, and if so how would I fit them?


You can get PC speakers for just a few pounds/dollars. Most just connect via a USB port. If you're going for a powerful sound system, then it'll probably have a direct power connections as well as a USB plug. Most new ones will probably come with a connection diagram as well.

Left Speaker Jack only produces static


Hi!

That is probably happened to an aging speaker.

Consider buying a new one or try to rewire the coil inside the speaker magnet.

Buzzing static sound in speaker


Static can be caused by a few things.

Does the static persist if you unplug the audio cable from your computer?
If so, the static is being caused by the amplifier built in to your speakers.
If not, the static is probably caused by interference on your sound card. Try plugging the speakers in to a portable media player. You might need to replace the sound card in your computer.

The static is probably coming from the computer sound card itself. Turn the volume down on the computer mixer it should limit the static you are hearing.
