Question about Creative Labs Inspire T2900 Computer Speakers

4 Answers

Volume goes up and down by itself

I use iTunes to play my music on my computer, and every time I turn up the volume past about 1/4 the dial, the volume coming from the speakers lowers by itself, then it sometimes goes back up a little bit, and usually it stabalizes at a lower volume than it should be. It sometimes does not do it as much if I turn the iTunes volume down then turn the speaker volume up after that, but it usually does the same thing. Is this normal for aging speakers (3 1/2 years old), or is it a damaged wire somewhere, or my soundcard?
FYI --- I have a Sony RS620G Desktop, no upgrades except for a replaced NIC card and another 512mb RAM stick.

Hey all, I had this problem too and found a fix you all can try. It's simple and won't waste a lot of time in trial, what have ya got to lose? ;p

Apparently this is a known 'retention' problem in the volume control knob and is usually localized to the knob position that you've used the most(wear an tear issue), basically if you turn the volume really low or high, there's no problem, that's all I'm saying here, and my issue appeared about a year after use... just to give a iffy timeline.

The solution, if you can believe it, is to simply create more resistance so the knob doesn't move as freely. Most, like myself, have created more tension by simply folding a piece of paper and shoving it into the small space between the knob and the plastic casing, but others have come up with more needless and inventive ways, if you dare to be so bold. The folded piece of paper was enough to fix my issue, maybe I can get another year or 2 out my Creative surround speakers :) Good luck with the speakers, hope it was helpful! :)

Hello!
Well, first of all, this is a common problem in some volume devices, controls on (creative sound speakers) and others, check with headphones, and see if volume come ok when use Itunes, and then buy a new pair of speakers, is better that try to see something you wont find.
I saw that problem thousand of times.
so, I get better than cleaning contact in this case, get new ones.

Phone was placed on it while playing music and now its not responding. no lights nothing, just the tablet itself getting hotter and hotter.


you might have to reset it, and give it a day's rest and then continue. With the device turned off, press and hold the volume down button, and then briefly press the power button. - Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the volume down button. - Press volume down to select clear storage, and then press power. - Press volume up to start the factory reset.

How do you turn the volume down


1. Turn on the cube2. Hold silver + yellow at the same time while the startup music plays3. At the end of the music the voice will say "volume control, volume level ..."4. Release the buttons5. Tap either silver or yellow, listen to the voice and it will tell you the new level, "4", "3", "2", "1", etc. Yellow goes softer to a minimum of "1", Silver goes louder to a maximum of "4".6. When you're done, just wait a few seconds and it will automatically ask you which game you want to play.

Ipod shuffle wont play


If iPod shuffle isn’t playing music
â iPod shuffle might not have any music on it. If you hear the message “Please use
iTunes to sync music,” connect iPod shuffle to your computer to sync music to it.
â Slide the three-way switch off and then on again.
â Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way.
â Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. A volume limit might be set. See “Setting
a Volume Limit” on page 25.
â iPod shuffle might be paused. Try clicking the Center button on the earphone remote

Volume goes all the way up by itself


1. The volume up button on the remote may be stuck down- try wiggling the button to get it out. If it isn't the remote if the local volume control is in fact two buttons perhaps that one is stuck in or damaged.

2. The dvd sounds like it needs a new laser unit- a worn laser unit may play up like this.
It might be time for a new one as replacement can be sometimes more than the cost of a new one nowdays!

Completely Wacky 'Sansa e260'


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. That will be the only way

How do I download from itunes?


Itunes is formatted for mp4 players. That is Ipods or other apple products. You can use Windows Media Player to add vidoes and music to your mp3 player. Also if you have files in itunes that you want to be converted to mp3 for your player. All you need to do is find a mp4 to mp3 converter.

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.
