Question about Creative Labs Inspire T2900 Computer Speakers
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, I have just bought Brand New Creative T9200 5.1 Computer Speakers. At first all worked out fine but then later I startedt o experience some problem with the volume control. As some of you might know this audio system has got a wired remote control to power up and adjust volume. Now Whenever I try to increase/decrease vol , it just becomes lounder or softer llike crazy!! Like as if the volume goes up and down just like that!! Anybody know what to do????

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.
