Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers

Buzzing sound coming from my jbl creature speakers no music

My jbl creature speakers are omiting a low buzzing sound, the LED's on the satelite speakers are on but the plugs are quite tempremental and i have to wiggle the plugs in order to get them to stay on, the volume buttons do not work and there is no output from all of the speakers apart from this low buzzing sound, I have taken the sub unit to pieces to see if there are any obvious problems (ie; blown capacitors etc) and cannot see anything, im wondering if these speakers are fakes because i cannot believe such a good quality speaker company like JBL would produce something of such poor quality, ive also noticed that the specifications sticker on the underside of the sub woofer unit is slightly blurred and even with a magnifying glass some of the smaller text is unreadable, am i being too picky? or have i bought some poor quality copys? i would be very greatful for any advice, thanks in advance, Marty.

    Thank you Frankzjm for such a rapid response.

    The print quality on the label is of nominal quality, and some of the smaller text (ie; the electrical hazzard warning) is quite blurry and unreadable , even with a magnifying glass, I noticed (whilst dismantling the sub unit) a couple of scribbled initials on the inside of the lid of the sub unit, One in green and one in red, whether this has any significance im not sure ! i have a pair of JBL Monitor 4208's and the label on the back of them is very clear, even the smallest text is readable,. I am an electrician and am quite technically minded and have repaired hundred of electrical items in my time so i guess you could say im am a bit of a fixer, Marty .

    how you judge it is fake one:

    1) the lable clean and good print quality

    2) there are manufactory mark series/date/model no. etc.

    if no it is fake one

    do you like repair urself?

Hi I have had my JBL speakers for 2 years now. Recently the sub woofer has been making a buzzing sound but it continued to work ok. Now the speakers have also stopped working! Is there a solution to this problem? Would be grateful if someone got back to me.

One of the jbl creature speakers doesn't work

I had the same problem one time and it was a loose connection in the speaker. I will work on any computer but I stay away from anything else. :-) A buddy opened her up and fixed her for me. If it is new, think about taking it back to the store. Thank goodness the prices have come down so much that I am considering getting Bose instead and blasting myself onto the wall behind me. :-)

Hi my creature 3 speakers were used at a party and the subwoofer dropped a couple times off about a 2 feet high table. now whenever i try to play music from my computer theres a loud buzzing noise in the...

A wire inside the cable has probably come loose, unless you (or a friend) have decent soldering skills to just replace the wire form the audio controller (most likely spot to have problems) to the PC they are probably just trash.

Low volume on creature speakers

Your speaker volume must have reset. You have to touch the dots on the right speaker to turn up the volume to desired volume. I just remembered that on my system. Hope this helps.

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!
