Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers

Horizontal speaker has a internal flapping noise

The horizontal speaker has a flapping noise. I am assume that the actual speaker is not sealed somehow and wanted to open it up and seal it with a quick glue but cannot figure out how to open it...yes, I've unscrewed all the screws. (this solution worked years ago on a stero speaker making the same noise). 1. How do I open up the casing of the horizontal speaker and 2. do you have any other suggestions of what the flapping noise might be?

Re: horizontal speaker has a internal flapping noise

Once you take off the screws you pry the circuit out as it is glued in to prevent air,
you will have to cut the cable to speaker,
the flapping is likely a cracked speaker or loose insulation

Monitiors are not turning on

Have you tried to use these on other devices, like a DVD Player, etc.? If you get a HUMMING noise with other devices then the internal amplifier is defective and you are not getting sound production to the speakers. If you have separate power AMP and the speakers hum when connected, they may have been damaged. If you have a speaker mismatch; they tend to buzz, thus too many conditions could represent the humming. Check that the Positive and Negative polarization of the speaker wires are correct.

Sounds like a problem in the speakers' internal power supply, maybe a faulty capacitor. Speakers need to be looked at by a technician, or replaced with a new set.

This seems like at cables have gone bad or either the connections in the speakers went bad. Its best to replace them unless you know how to disassemble and re-soder the connections.

Shouldn't need drivers for the speakers themselves.
Assuming you run audio straight from your motherboard, I can find them if you tell me what motherboard you are using.

I have Bose Companion 2 Series ones and the left makes odd noises

> I turn the volume to a low it still has the odd noise
If there is any drive to the speaker at all (volume not turned off), the rattle is probably coming from a broken 'surround;' the part that keeps the cone centered around the outer edge.
Another point of failure is a structure called a 'spider' that is located between the voice coil and cone that ensures the voice coil stays centered.
If there is hum with the volume turned completely down, the amplifier driving the speakers (internal or external) has a failing filter in the power supply.

M602 Speaker Problem,.. Popping Sound

This worked for me on my M604: Try inserting/removing a headphone plug into the jack several times to see if that clears the problem.

The "popping" sound is very similar to the sound that the unit makes when inserting headphones into the 'headphone' jack on the back of the unit.

The jack has a contact switch that triggers a relay inside the unit. If that contact switch is 'on the verge' of making contact, slight temperature changes may cause deform closer to it's contact target. The subsequent capacitance build-up and discharge across the gap could explain the cycle of popping noises after the unit warms up.

One speaker has noise in it all the other are fine rh front speaker if i swap over speakers the problem still persists

What Kind of a noise is it, and is it characteristic of a single speaker [so is it this one speaker making the noise regardless of where you put it] or a single speaker jack [or is it a single port on your central unit that is causing the noise]? If you're experiencing a hum or sqeaky sound on any speaker that you attach to your central Unit, then the actual port that you're connecting the speakers to is mulfunctional. Otherwise make sure, you dont have any speaker cables running past any high voltage applicances, or even any equipment near such appliances. Another alternative would be to make sure that you speakers aren't torn inside

Acer aspire speakers

i had the same problem on my acer aspire 6935g.

its the internal subwoofer.

i have windows 7, so to turn it off i did this:

right click the speaker icon at the bottom right.
click 'sounds', then 'playback'.
double click 'realtek speakers'.
click 'levels', then at the bottom there is a slider saying 'internal subwoofer'.
slide this to 0.
click 'ok', then close all the windows.

The internal subwoofer is off, (but can be turned on again if you want), so the crackling should have stopped.
It worked for me...

Hope this helped! ;D

The internal amp for the left rear speaker has a faulty transistor or IC chip this would need to be replaced.
