Having problems with your Creative Labs Inspire T2900 Computer Speakers ?

Volume goes up and down by itself

\015 I use iTunes to play my music on my computer, and every time I turn up the volume past about 1/4 the dial, the volume coming from the speakers lowers by itself, then it sometimes goes back up a little bit, and usually it stabalizes at a lower volume than it should be. It sometimes does not do it as much if I turn the iTunes volume down then turn the speaker volume up after that, but it usually does the same thing. Is this normal for aging speakers (3 1/2 years old), or is it a damaged wire somewhere, or my soundcard?\015\012FYI --- I have a Sony RS620G Desktop, no upgrades except for a replaced NIC card and another 512mb RAM stick.\015\012\015\012Ryan\015\012\015

Hey all, I had this problem too and found a fix you all can try. It's simple and won't waste a lot of time in trial, what have ya got to lose? ;p

Apparently this is a known 'retention' problem in the volume control knob and is usually localized to the knob position that you've used the most(wear an tear issue), basically if you turn the volume really low or high, there's no problem, that's all I'm saying here, and my issue appeared about a year after use... just to give a iffy timeline.

The solution, if you can believe it, is to simply create more resistance so the knob doesn't move as freely. Most, like myself, have created more tension by simply folding a piece of paper and shoving it into the small space between the knob and the plastic casing, but others have come up with more needless and inventive ways, if you dare to be so bold. The folded piece of paper was enough to fix my issue, maybe I can get another year or 2 out my Creative surround speakers :) Good luck with the speakers, hope it was helpful! :)
