Desktop Theater 5.1, DTT 2500 -- Faulty to No Outputs

December 4, 2007

Newton, MA

Re: Model No. Desktop Theater 5.1, DTT 2500 Digital, Five Satellite/Subwoofer Speaker System, with Dolby Digital Processor

Serial No. SW352000471004205

Dear Sirs or Madam,

Please advise me of a reliable service facility to repair my DeskTop Theater 5.1 DTT 2500 Digital Decoder Amplifier. .

When the decoder amplifier's "master" control is adjusted , it frequently operates faulty—the signal’s volume level increases or decreases—as the signal alternates between dim and bright or disappears entirely.

Often, the signal is barely audible and may be absent from all channel (s). I desperately rely upon the system as a screen reader for processing materials.

Can you help me please? I hope to hear from you very soon.

You defenetely need to RMS your device to support on the place you buy, or company that made the decoder.
it is inside motherboard problem, and it is not so easy to pin point the problem here. but, yes, you has may be a bad modulator inside for the right signal to keep in right volume.
get it to repair shop.

Replacement part or schematic for Cambridge Soundworks computer speakers

I'm in the same predicament! I found this - it seems close, though the pins seem to be spaced closer together, but it looks like they might be bent to fit the wider PC board spacing. The rotating shaft also seems smaller - the original is larger than 1/4".
What do you think?

Had my computer rebuilt and now my cambridge soundworks GCS300 speakers will not work....what do i do

Generally speakers will not need a driver, its more likely your soundcard needs the driver - have you tried anything else rather than the speakers to get sound? If you cant get any sound at all then its your soundcard so you will need the driver for it - otherwise try the link below, its the only thing that comes remotely close to a driver for these speakers -

thx, hope this helps :)

Cd won't go into the cd slot on the Soundworks--any suggestions?

As far as I know, SoundWorks speaker systems don't have a CD slot. Why would they?
They're supposed to be connected to a computer, which has a CD/DVD drive.

Well, easy task, just put a music CD, on system and if you got an headphones, put in the green connector on your sound card, pop up the PC volume, and see if you heard sound, if you do, heard sound then the problem is your speakers. if don't is your sound card.
good luck

Fluctuation in sound output on Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 speakers

Hi Paulus
A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.

Speakers working, then suddenly not...

It's possible they've died, have you checked that your sound card and drivers are working by using another set of speakers or headphones.
