Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers
I have just recently moved my computer to a new residence, and now my speakers are not working properly. When I listen to music it fades in and out. It will go from the volume that I have it set at, to a lower volume, then back up. This is not something that happens right away, it takes a few minutes of listening. I would appreciate some feedback as to how I can fix this problem.

Ensure all connectors are properly inserted, then if you have a speaker mounted volume control, then run it back and forth rapidly about 100 times with power off. this will allow the tiny copper "wipers" contacts to brush off any accumulated dust.

The replacement system came in as faulty too!!!!
This is 2 units in a row. There must be some problem with them. I have given up and bought a Logitech G51 instead. Sounds better too...

Thank you very much for your help. Your solution worked great.
Computer speakers started fading in and out again. The speakers will jump up to a higher volume randomly and then shoot back down to what it was set at. I have tried to fix this by unplugging the speakers from my surge and directly plugging it into the wall, also I have disconnected the whole system and then connected it. I tried the last solution and it seemed to help for alittle while but then, it came back. Could it still be dust or maybe my sound card ot r are the speakers just crap?
speakers was fade in and fade out the light also the same
My speakers do this, as well. They were working great until recently, when I noticed that they were fading in and out, with the volume changing and the speakers sometimes just cutting out. It even happens when I plug the jack into my iPod, so it's definitely the speakers.
My volume gets louder and returns to normal setting randomly. I re-inserted all connectors & cleaned the volume pot with alcohol but it still has the problem. Do you have any information what may be the cause? Email me at [email protected]
Everything here is exactly the same with my Dell 5650. They worked good for about a year and a half. The volume fluctuates with a CD player also. Definitely in the speaker itself (not the sound card).
Yep, I have the same problem with my Dell MMS 5650 system...
The symptoms: volume randomly varying, sometimes much lower and then much louder.
I have been testing with headphones on the output of my Creative X-Fi card and the volume is consistent. The problem is within the subwoofer/amplification circuit. I have ordered a replacement system and will open the old unit and fault find once it arrives.
I'll post a solution once I fix it if possible but it looks like there is a inherent problem with the unit as all outputs FL/FR/C/RL/RR are affected. Could be a faulty FET as posted here:
I am having the same problem can someone help me with this volume promblem
I've had this problem for quite some time on my computer. It has also happened on a system my dad has set up in his garage which is an iPod directly attached to computer speakers (but with no computer). Maybe it's a power issue?
