Volume control buttons on Creature II speakers

The volume control buttons on the satellite speaker do not work. I can adjust the volume using the controls on my MacBook and Ipod. But nothing happens when I use the touch buttons on the speaker itself. Otherwise, the system works fine.

    same problem with the volume control buttons.  They do not work.  New system used a few times and that is it.

    yes, i have the same problem although when i tried the thumb method, it did not work. if anyone finds another solution, type it up. i would be very interested

    Exactly the same. Touch controls do not work at all. Should I take the whole system to the technic support?

    Thank you Dekalo, I couldn't adjust the sound, so I did what you said (I didn't use any solvent) but I kept working the volume with my thumb, nail and knuckle and I unplugged and replugged the sound speaker and it finally took and I have beautiful sound.

    The right speaker, which controls the volume, had a broken pin in the connector, thus not working at all. I got the little connector changed by a friend and got both speakers to work but the sound becomes gritty/rattling (on the right speaker) when I turn the volume a little high. And If I crank it up it starts to cut off in both speakers. I have to touch the volume again to have sound coming out and I don't know if it is the cable with the new connector, the speaker buttons or the speakers being blown up. Does any one have an idea of what it could be and how to fix?

Try to simply disconnect and reconnect the right channel cable to the subwoofer.

Hey there, I have JLB Creature II speakers, that have been working fine for nearly a year. Until one day, when the treble's maximum volume became a lot lower than before. The bass still rocks it up like...

Hi Nikita,

The problem may be with the internal electronics of these speakers, especially the sub-system that controls the treble. If they are still under warranty, you should talk to the dealer. If not, you should contact a technician.

Hope that helps,

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.

JBL Creature Speakers have very low volume

I had the same problem. Then I read about the volume controls on the right speaker. They are silver buttons for me on the front bottom left and right of the speaker. Now they play really loud!
