How to Properly Troubleshoot and Fix Common Problems With Your Audio Equipment

A vast majority of problems with your audio come from some sort of defectiveness connected to the installation itself. It can either be a cable connected wrongly, or it can also be a problem caused by low maintenance. Whatever the case, with audio settings having a lot of wires, cables, and different components, it can easily cause distress to the average consumer who at times feels a bit lost. Therefore, we’ll discuss common problems and how to fix them with ease.

Improper sound

An often problem when it comes to your audio setup is improper sound or distorted sound. A common occurrence is a sort of hushing, or maybe cracks, constantly disrupted transmission of the sound itself or no sound at all. The first thing to do is check your connection. The connection plays a large role in the proper transmission of the sound, therefore if a cable is disconnected by any chance, maybe ripped at one point, or just wrongly put- this can disrupt sound quality. If the cable is alright, it is not ripped or damaged in any possible way, chances are you have put the cable in the wrong input. Speakers have several input options for different cables, like the 3,5 mm, Bluetooth, etc., therefore, checking if the cable is in the right place might play a role in the disruption of the sound.

The lights are trembling

Depending on the particular audio, some speakers and AirPods have light indicators telling you if something is wrong with the sound. This mostly goes for the kind of speaker which is rechargeable, or AirPods for example have the same system and issue. Trembling lights, change of colour, or no light at all, tells you whether the speaker or earplugs have any life in them left. For example, the white colour on AirPods indicates the AirPods are ready to be paired with another device, while an orange colour is a sign of the AirPods charging. You can find out more on the matter at as the issues are usually minor and can easily be fixed. Another problem not specifically related to lights is related to the problem of proper connection or if the sound comes from the wrong direction. For example, in the case of the AirPods, if the sound is coming from one and not the other, chances are they are either out of battery or they are not paired with the device. If you have a speaker system set up at home, the problem might be because the setup is wrong and the cable, or wire, is wrongly connected to the specific amplifier. Most speaker setups come with a manual, therefore we encourage reading them before setting up the system.

Poor sound quality can also indicate that any component of the sound system simply is not paired with the right sound format. This can also occur if you happen to have no sound at all, or as said, low sounds and low quality.

A bee got stuck in the speaker

A humming sound might seem like a bee got stuck in the speaker, however, the reality is far from this. You should first look at the specific sound formant, then we recommend eliminating one by one of the many components until you finally find the source of the problem. If you have tried everything, and have lost all faith, chances are your amplifier needs replacing. Before that, do try and look at the cables, whether they are alright and whether everything seems as it should.

Scratches and muffled sounds

Now, a common problem is having muffled sounds or maybe the whole speaker system does not deliver the bass or vibes as it is supposed to. There are several reasons why this might happen, and we’ll talk about some of how you can fix it.

First, the whole system might be played at a certain volume level causing distortion and scratches. High volume can easily mess with your whole speaking system, therefore simply lower it and see if there are any results.

Sometimes it is best to look at what the manufacturer recommended and put your speakers in the right place.

If nothing helps, chances are you are having once again trouble with some of the cables. Check twice before, and if something happens to be ripped, it might be the cause of your distress.

We hope you’ll fix the issues you are experiencing in no time, and enjoy the first-class sound quality. As you can see, most problems are rather minor and can be fixed by simply checking the setup and the cables. Others might require a bit more work, however, whatever the case is,  you’ll manage it easily.
