CREATIVE GIGAWORKS T40 SERIES II problem with annoying sound

I have on my main system this set of speakers. The left speaker the last period has a annoying sound when I open the speakers. The problem it's like on this video

Any idea from where it's this problem and how I can fix it ?

I don't think this problem it's from dust.

Well sounds to my ear just like the usual sound you get when you turn a dusty volume knob. But it's there even when you dont turn the knob so I don't know.

how does it sound with the audio input unplugged?
i had this issue with a loose audio cable on my T20.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

The problem remain even the audio input it's unplugged and the PC it's off.

Either the potentiometer (aka. the volume knob) has dust and grease stuck inside it making that nasty voice, or the amplifier circuitry is busted.
The first one can be fixed by spraying some contact cleaner on the potentiometer and wiggling it back and forth. The second one is pretty much impossible to fix by yourself.

Ppl should learn to add more info to their posts when they ask for help...
