Having problems with your Creative Labs I-Trigue 2.1 3300 Computer Speakers ?

Corded volume control up and down in volume by itself

\015 Hello-\015\012\015\012This seems a common prob with the I-trigue 3330.\015\012\015\012The corded remote (basically a big black button dial that controls the on/off- volume- has a smaller dial for bass control. \015\012\015\012The sound warbles- goes up and down by it self at the slightest jarring of the remote unit.\015\012\015\012You can put your finger on top of the button and tap it lightly and it will fluctuate wildly even though the dial isn't turned at all.\015\012\015\012Creative is no help. There are NO replacement parts, no after market replacements. This system seems to be nice, but w/o the remote - it is toast. \015\012\015\012Any ideas?\015

Answers :

I have/had the same problem. Frustrated with the lack of even a make shift solution on the internet I took matters into my own hands. This is a partial solution (as completely fixing it would likely require taking it apart and replacing parts, soldering, etc.) and it might not work for everyone.

Here's what I did...
I cut a small piece of paper a little over 1 inch long and about 1.5 cm wide. I folded it vertically and, using tweezers, wedged it into the space between the dial knob and the surrounding grey plastic. Picture here -> http://imgur.com/8roA2.jpg

It increases the friction between the knob and the plastic and since I've done it I haven't had the random volume jumps. Hope it works! If it does, spread the word because I know a lot of people have this issue.
