There is a youtube video of a repair being done on a CSW unit like that. The video does not show a lot of details. I repair stereo systems and the volume control can be replaced. The problem with them is the lubrication inside the actual potentiometer gets dirty and sticky. The units I looked at to find yours say that it has a BASH module. If that is the case then it is associated with Klipsch. Finding a schematic is very difficult and if you could post a picture it may help

SOURCE: Fluctuation in sound output on Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 speakers

Hi Paulus
A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.

Well, easy task, just put a music CD, on system and if you got an headphones, put in the green connector on your sound card, pop up the PC volume, and see if you heard sound, if you do, heard sound then the problem is your speakers. if don't is your sound card.
good luck

SOURCE: static while adjusting volume on

If the volume is controlled with a mechanical volume control, usually a knob you turn or a slider you move, the problem is the volume control device (potentiameter) needs to be cleaned. That requires special cleaning chemicals most people do not have in their home. You would need to take it in to be serviced. This is a very inexpensive repair. Normally only costing about $50 to $75.

If it has electronic controlled volume like a button you press then it will still need to be serviced, but this is an unlikely case with static in volume when using the volume control.

If I can be more help let me know.

SOURCE: Dim display on Cambridge Soundworks 88CD

I can't find a manual for this but my guess would be there is a setting for the Display to dim it at all times unless you touch a control.

I am going to guess these are fairly old speakers. I would recommend getting a replacement system.

Replacement part or schematic for Cambridge Soundworks computer speakers

I'm in the same predicament! I found this - it seems close, though the pins seem to be spaced closer together, but it looks like they might be bent to fit the wider PC board spacing. The rotating shaft also seems smaller - the original is larger than 1/4".
What do you think?

Lost Speaker Sound

It does sound like a connector issue, don't you think?

What happens if you DON"T touch the connector but move the volume control on the controller?

Have you tried looking outward toward the source?

do they plug in with a 3.5mm audio jack?
if so, i think you need to check your drivers for laptop output socket.
