Volume control buttons on Creature II speakers

The volume control buttons on the satellite speaker do not work. I can adjust the volume using the controls on my MacBook and Ipod. But nothing happens when I use the touch buttons on the speaker itself. Otherwise, the system works fine.

    Exactly the same. Touch controls do not work at all. Should I take the whole system to the technic support?

    Thank you Dekalo, I couldn't adjust the sound, so I did what you said (I didn't use any solvent) but I kept working the volume with my thumb, nail and knuckle and I unplugged and replugged the sound speaker and it finally took and I have beautiful sound.

    The right speaker, which controls the volume, had a broken pin in the connector, thus not working at all. I got the little connector changed by a friend and got both speakers to work but the sound becomes gritty/rattling (on the right speaker) when I turn the volume a little high. And If I crank it up it starts to cut off in both speakers. I have to touch the volume again to have sound coming out and I don't know if it is the cable with the new connector, the speaker buttons or the speakers being blown up. Does any one have an idea of what it could be and how to fix?

Try to simply disconnect and reconnect the right channel cable to the subwoofer.

How to use hk395 subwoofer without satellite speakers

System power is controlled by a switch on the right satellite speaker ON/OFF VOLUME control, therefore you would have to connect a separate switch to control power. However, you may be able to get a satisfactory result by turning the satellite volume control completely counter clockwise and adjusting the WOOFER VOLUME control to the desired level.

Hey there, I have JLB Creature II speakers, that have been working fine for nearly a year. Until one day, when the treble's maximum volume became a lot lower than before. The bass still rocks it up like...

Hi Nikita,

The problem may be with the internal electronics of these speakers, especially the sub-system that controls the treble. If they are still under warranty, you should talk to the dealer. If not, you should contact a technician.

Hope that helps,

Can't find the hands free speaker button

In an increasingly hands-free world, the external speaker feature of cell phones has increased the usability of cell phonesmag-glass_10x10.gif in the car, public transportation and at work. The volume controls on the external speaker controls can be somewhat difficult to find and manipulate.
  1. Step 1 Make sure the speaker setting is actually on. If the speaker is turned to off, the volume you hear will be coming from the earpiece and will be very low indeed. Sometimes there is a button on a cellphone which you can simply press and hold to activate the speaker function. You will notice a difference immediately.
  2. Step 2 Check to see if you have external volume controls. On some models, there is a button or two buttons that adjust the volume of both the handset and the speaker volume. If you have these buttons, use them to adjust these controls while on calls. Remember that adjusting the speaker volume will subsequently adjust the handset volume once you've turned off the speaker mode.
  3. Step 3 Access the sound controls in your phone. If your phone does not have external speaker control, it can be accessed by adjusting the controls saved on your phone. Also, the main settings can be controlled even if you do have external controls. Phones are different, but in your menu of options, choose sound and sound controls. This should give you options for ring volume, alarm volume and handset volume.
  4. Step 4 FInd volume controls for all settings. If you wish yo have multiple settings for each function---alarm, calls and speaker---you should be able to adjust these accordingly. Search through the control options until you've found speaker controls. Choose the setting you desire and save the settings.
  5. Step 5 Using the main volume as a foundation, use the external controls (if applicable) to adjust the levels.
