Laptop Distorted Sound Repaired

By on August 19, 2023

One of my techie friends come to my place with one laptop for distorted sound problem.

So I checked laptop by playing some songs voice is like scrappy noise. I tuned off the laptop & ask him to open the laptop it seems some internal problem. So he disassembled the laptop (I was busy in writing one Article).

I asked him to remove the speakers…

I ask him to replace this Speakers with new one. He told me his brother is using this laptop & he doesn’t want to spend more … I checked the speaker some black sticky rubber type material is like melted and paper cone is also degraded so replacement is the only solution.

Removed both the speakers

Size of speakers are very small & thin also arranging speakers form another laptop also not fit physically. So I again sked him for what purpose he use speakers, he told me just for on line lecture nothing else….

I take out some speakers from my spare box to see if I can help him out. these are some universal speakers.

I found two speakers which I can use …. this may not sound as original speakers because laptop speakers are of 1W & this are lower than 1W.

For testing first I soldered one speaker to check how it performs.

Soldered the speaker in its case & after connecting it I turned on the laptop and played some song….

Of course sound quality is not as good as original (Original is from Harmon) but still it can meet our purpose.

My friend is happy with the quality because vocal is clear.

So fitted both the speakers in its casing.

Assembled the laptop & played some songs again …. sound is clear & loud except any effect of Bass in music.

    I guess that the original Harmon 1 Watt speaker may have been used at a too loud volume that made the cones degrade. Which could have been any too loud base in the Harmon speakers while playing any music. Although 1 Watt and the limited power of the internal laptop amplifier normally would have prevented this?

    Albert, Speaker Cone degraded like melted Sticky Rubber this is not because of loud volume. I think speaker Build quality is not good, laptop is only 3 years old.

      the foam ring that was helping hold the speakers in place went bad. I had this happen in a few cases.
