Creative speakers - dodgy connection

  Xnulian Rrudho 15:02 27 Sep 2010

Afternoon all. I've got a pair of Creative i-Trigue 2200 speakers which worked fine for years, but the power began cutting out intermittently a while ago, and it's got worse ever since - they now just don't work unfortunately.

Basically, at the point where the wire comes out of the plug, something must've come loose because the speakers only come on when I press the wire against the plug.

My technical knowledge is abysmal but I just wondered what your suggestions might be - I've read in other threads on here that Creative, unsurprisingly, don't do individual replacement parts.

Would this be absurdly difficult to fix by myself, or worth giving a go?

Which connection exactly are you talking about?

I bet it's in the volume control thingy. We've had the same problem with Creative i-trigue speakers since we got it 3 years ago, but it hasn't packed in altogether yet.

My advice: buy a different make. I will. Recommendations gladly received.

You reckon the problem's to do with the volume-controlling speaker itself? Interesting. Either way, I think I'm going to have to buy new ones aren't I.
