Razer carcharias

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey

the sound of my carcharias is pretty wierd atm..
sometimes the right speaker just stopt giving sound, and when i twist the volume controll box then it fixes it Until i put the sound louder or lower.

i think it has someyhing to do with the cables inside there but im not sure.. and i dont really know how to get it open.

Anyone who can help me with this?

Thanks in advance

I think I may have had this issue once with a pair of one of the low end logitech headsets. When you try to fix the sound and you adjust the volume up and down, do you get static and whatnot?

That was what was happening to mine, and eventually the sound just got quieter then later just stopped. Turns out it was a wire that got pulled loose.

It is most likely a cable issue... but don't make a final decision until someone with more experience tells you

highly likely le olde cable wire being loose / snapped. Common symptoms of it. Roll your fingers along the wire, if you feel any inconsistently in the feel of it, that's where it broke. If not, it'll be in the volume pod or below the earcup of the troubling side.

That or be lazy and just RMA.

Sorry for my late responce, school

Well in fact i allready RMA's it and those basterds told me there was nothing wrong with it -.-"
i dont feel any bulges in the wire, so it will be the volume control pod...
Its the right earpad, and the wire goes in the left and nothing happens when i twist the wire there. When the right earpad stops then i keep twisting and doing weird stuff with the wire at the volume control and then its temporarily fixed :s

But since the RMA didn't work and that they just told me with a smile on their faces that there was nothing wrong.. How do i open the volume control pod?

Note: Im gone from monday till friday, so i wont anwser at those days, dont take it as being lazy

to the people who have this problem:
Audio doesnt work properbly on the left/right side, when you put your volume op or down then it does give some short sounds or it does that when you twist the wires on the volume controll pod. No broken cables are found inside the wire or inside the pod.

The solution is:
1) Open you volume controll pod -> open it by gently putting your fingernail in the edge between the two half, and it pops right off. DONT put force on the volume controll!! it stuck to the pcb wich is screwed into one half of the cotroll pod!!
2) Screw the pcb off (2 little black screws)
3) Gently lift up the volume controll disk, under the big disk there is a small one wich is sticked/glued on a small one. allso here, do not use force! do it gently!
4) Push down the little disk on the inner side (the side wich faces the mute button) you do have to use little force here! plug it in a few times to test the difference. After it works fine make sure you play with the volume because it might bend back! Just keep pushing it down untill it remains having a stable sound.
5) Put the whole thing back together
6) Get a smile on that face of yours and have fun with your repaired carcharias!


wrote that thingy myself, was playing with the pod because the sound was doing weird again, and i kinda opened the pod on accident Ghehe ^^

Hope other ppl will find this helpfull

Sounds like you need to get rid of that vol control all together...maybe the whole headphone....j/k.

Maybe a bit of hot glue to keep it down?

Then you glue the volume controll and make it stuck, u wont that to happen :/
you just have to push the small wheel under the big one down with a bit of force to bend it a little bit you wont notice that u have bended it with your eyes, you will only notice it when you plug you headphone jack in and turn it louder and softer ^^

The headset is really good, the mic has good quality (as long as it works..) and the audio is just perfect for the musik i like (Hardcore/Hardstyle etc etc) so no need to replace it
