Hissing Sound in Creative SBS 560 5.1 Speakers

I just bought a Creative SBS 560 5.1 speaker set. There is a very harsh hissing sound coming from all the speakers. Also within one minute of starting the speakers, there is a very harsh disturbance which blocks out all the music that is playing and continues for about 5 seconds even after the speakers are switched off. Please advise on the solution.

    I have tried both Sound Blaster Live ! Value.as well as the onboard sound with Realtek AC'97 drivers. The same problem persists. The board is an ASUS A7N8X-VM 400 with AMD Athlon XP 2400+. The operating system is Windows XP SP2.

Have you check to see if you have the correct driver for the sound card. I know for fact that when reload some mother board that have a build in sound card that carries AC97 drivers it will install or download the AC97 driver with no problem,and no error and it will not work because the driver needs to be upgrade. You might need to get a new sound card. simple and done. Or go through the trouble to find the correct AC97 driver.

good luck

Its not the drivers, its the control module. They were built ****. I ran into the same issue. It will hum and pop and click. Literally if you take the volume control and tap it a few times against your desk it will go away. But its a temporary fix, it will continue to act up. I know this is an old post but im contacting creative to see if i can order a new control module.

Creative SBS 2.1 370 Speaker - Volume Remote Controller not worki


Hi Arun!

Try to plug your speakers to an iPod or any MP3 Player to check if there's sound. If there is sound, then try plugging it to the green port at the back of your speakers.

If it doesn't have sounds then you need to buy a new speaker system.

NO SOUND


Have you checked on the PC that its not muted.? There is normally an icon at the bottom of the screen which looks like a speaker if you right click on it, it will give an option to open the volume controls. Check this to see if sounds have been muted.

2.1 creative speakers.


Speakers need to be used much often.If they are left without using they might get affected with dust and charge storage.It happens with generally every brand.
The solution could be either servicing it or generally using it very regularly.

Logitech x530 hissing noise


I had the same problem for the longest time with my set of Logitech 540 5.1 speakers. Turns out the solution was pretty simple. All I did was open the Master Volume controller and mute the Microphone. Hissing went to zero. Sound is great now.

Speakers hissing/humming


Hi Nate41
you won't do anithyng
may be is a bad resistor inside, that get hot and probably start to do this problem. try disconecting the speakers, and move to other place, more cooler, and try to see if you don't get the hissing and humming sound now. sometimes dust and hot places get to this problem.
beside that, may be a path to a problem.
