{MOVED}Dell Xps Jbl speaker problem

This question is not answered

Hi,

 I am having a Dell Xps 14 laptop. The Jbl speakers were working fine till last month(Nov 2012). Suddenly i am getting crackling sound from the speakers, when i play any audio or any video files. But when i connect any headphones or any external speakers, it is working fine. Please suggest some solution for me. Thanks in advance.

    The issue is with the speakers. Reason is you had connected headphone and external speakers and that’s working fine.

  • Hello. If you want to test whether the speakers are going bad, remove your IDT audio driver.

    Go to Start>Control Panel>View by Category>Uninstall a Program. Go down the list to "IDT Audio" and uninstall it. Restart the laptop and Windows will install its own native audio driver. If you still hear the crackling with the native driver then the speakers are failing.

    To get rid of the native driver just download a fresh copy of the IDT driver from Dell and install it.

  • Dear Nikhil,

    Even I am facing the same problem. My XPS 14 speakers are producing a crackling sound always. Headphones work fine for me too.

    Kindly advice me also.

    Regards

    Hello Nikil,

    So kindly guide me as how to replace it.

    Hello. Nikil has been gone from the forum for quite a few months.

    If you want to test whether the speakers are going bad, try using the native Windows driver as I suggested a few posts above this. Also be aware that there are other reasons that speakers can have noises. See the Choppy/Shipping Audio FAQ for solutions that worked for other owners.

    If you have determined that the speakers need replacing, download the XPS L502x Service Manual from this page. It is available in a variety of languages, and it will provide step by step instructions for replacing the speakers.

    Note: when you follow the links to the manual, you will be able to view it in your browser; however you should perform an additional step and open it in Adobe Reader in order to view the manual properly. When you are working on your laptop you should have the manual open in another computer within viewing range. If that is not practical then you should print out the manual after opening it in Adobe Reader.

    The part you need is this:

    You might be able to find the part on ebay or some similar site.

    If you are unsure whether or not the speaker needs to be replaced, the next time you perform a system recovery (return the laptop back to the original factory configuration) test the audio immediately after the recovery. If the speaker is still not working right it needs replacing, because the system recovery will fix any software problems with the audio, so any problems that remain after the recovery are in the hardware.
