Static in speaker

I'm having a little trouble with my 15. I'm getting sound when I hook everything up but there's a lot of static. I checked the wires and used them with other speakers...and they work fine. When I place the speaker on its side it's semi-clear, but as i turn to place it on it's back (facing up) the static returns. I think it may be the magnet on the back b/c when i tap it the static goes in and out....any suggestions?

Check to be sure you ran the audio wires away from the power supply wiring. I always run the audio down the Passenger side and power to amp on Drivers side. Also check you Ground, and be sure you have metal to metal, no paint obstructing the power.

Receiver static

It could be just a lead, check your lead heads and inserts are clean.
Check along your leads and wires for any obvious kinks / tight bends / cuts / nicks / something sitting down on it or any damage to the wires.

It could be there is another electrical device nearby interfering at a electromagnetic level.

It could be just the dials / knobs need taking off and cleaning in behind. the pickups, you may not need to remove them just spray with electronic cleaner b3203b06-4ced-4fda-befd-44f385f97b7e.jpg this stuff is great for lots of different electrical cleaning problems.
Good luck

It is an old speaker (DM601 S2) but well cared for. Have clear sound in one speaker and static in the other.

It sounds like a ground problem with the speaker crossover circuit or the amplifier. Turn the amp off and disconnect one speaker and interchange it with the other using the same speaker wires. If the static speaker is now working interchange the speaker wires and try it again. Or if the same speaker still has static it is the speaker. If the static is on the same channel then you have a bad wire or if both channels work it was a bad connection. If the problem remains on the same channel change the speaker wires. If the problem switched to the other channel then it is a bad speaker wire or connection. If the same speaker has the same problem it is most likely the crossover circuit in the speaker which is used to filter frequencies of the audio signal by using capacitors and coils. If the static speaker is now working and the other speaker is now not working it is the amplifier. If the static problem is on all input devices I would trouble shoot the preamp section of the amplifier.

Blue screen, little static and great sound

I can not be sure but it sounds like maybe a wire got pulled. Is that possible? Maybe the cable is either damaged or it is partly out of the jack. Check both ends, at the TV and the console.

Lights are on in the small speakers but no sound is produced...there is a short scratchy sound when I juggle the speker wire from sub woofer. I hooked speakers up to a different MAC and now am trying to...

Hi there , the green light just means its getting Power, it doesnt mean that its going to give sound, It could be that you dont have Drivers installed for your Sound card which is causing it too not get sound , but when it makes that static noise , its the Wire just causing Static with the Sub , just means its getting power , The + and - sign is the volume control ...Try see if you can turn it louder with the + . maybe it is low enough not too hear.....Hope this helped Bud
Happy new year.

Static in the sound

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.
