20 Most Recent Creative Labs I-Trigue 2.1 3300 Computer Speakers Questions & Answers

Try looking at your volume control connector. I found that 2 of the prongs were smashed down, so I got a tweezer and straightened them back up. As soon as I plugged it back in, the blue light on the volume control appeared (before it wasn't working at all), and the right side speaker worked again, whereas before only the left side had sound coming out of it.

Problem with sound IC in the board. IC is TDA8511J and need to replace it!

You probably have the power bar thing too close to the sub woofer, this will cause a pulsing sound! :D

Hey, I had that same problem and looked over it with my Dad, who's very technically minded. Here's what he found:

** Begin Quote **
We also had no/weak sound on the left channel of the I-Trigue 3300 2.1. Here's what we found (starting where you left off...).

The internal bias for the input pin for the left channel on the M51132L (pin two on the M51132L between the heat sink and the connectors) appears to have failed. It was sitting at an operating point of around 11 volts (should be 5.4V as the others were) and was only capacitor coupled to other nodes (the input at 0V bias and the chips reference on pin 4 at 5.4V) so it wasn't a case of capacitor leakage. Our temporary fix was to hang a 10k resistor between the node on pin 2 (with the failed bias) and the node on pin 4 (a good bias source). The easiest place to hang it was across the cap that connected to those two nodes. That pulled pin 2 far enough from the rail (down to around 9 volts) to allow it to work at the levels we drive it at while we look for a replacement part. The expectation is that with this kludge in place the left channel will distort before the right one will when the drive level is increased however, for the tests so far, the right and left channel now both work equally well.

Hope this helps you!

I had a same problem.Left speaker with no voice.Fallowing solution worked for me.
Disconnect the sub's electric first.Loosen 4 screws ant pull out the control unit slowly.Be careful, it is tight.Then you will see the big aluminium cooler.Carefully squeeze the two parallel arms between a finger and thumb to bend and get closer them about half mm.Then connect the plugs and play an mp3 to control.If it is ok, replace the control unit and tighten the secrews.

how old is the computer when was it last serviced/cleaned
you might have to uninstall the speakers then restart your computer and reinstall them
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers

also it might be a faulty or dusty lead connections and a dusty sound card
open up your computer have a look at the speaker connections check for dust and bad connections
hope this helps
