Y50 clicking sound from left speaker and muffled sound


I just bought the Y50 yesterday with the GTX 960M. Unfortunatly i noticed while playing that the left speaker started to do a clicking noise, in addition the sound became muffled. When i tilt the laptop the problem is resolved i.e. the clicing stops and the sound returns to normal. After a few minutes the same problem returns until i tilt the laptop or lift it again.

Please help.

Re: Y50 clicking sound from left speaker and muffled sound

I have the exact same problem with my Y50 which I bought few days back, noting that the problem was experienced immediately once I starting using it.


However, the clicking sound vanishes if I tilt the laptop around a little and then lay it back flat.

Re: Y50 clicking sound from left speaker and muffled sound

My Y50 had the left speaker clicking sound and muffled sound from day one (last month) March 2015

After much time and pain I worked out the problem was the cooling fins next to the cooling fans were flexing and I presume touching the left speaker wire which runs along under neath the cooling fins. I could get the clicking sound to happen every time if I applied a small amount of pressure on the cooling tubes that sit on top of the cooling fins.

I then placed a small piece of cardboard on the left side under the cooling fins to raise them only about 2 mm and this has fixed the problem. no more damm clicking sound and muffled sound


Hey Lenovo fix you Y50 laptop !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fan Noise Problem, Mustardish Yellow, 48Hz locked display, Speaker clicking, intel Wireless card problem(I had all)... I returned my Y50 to the vendor for full refund, and I'm not going to buy another lenovo product again.

Re: Y50 clicking sound from left speaker and muffled sound

My laptop had the same problem a couple of days ago.

I bought it about 20 months ago having no problems at all.


I fixed it by myself.

I unscrewed th bottow case of my laptop.

I inspected the left speaker cable and put it in it's place (there are fittings holding the cables in place)

Then I firmly screwed the bottom and everything works as it should.


Noticed that the screw under the left speaker was missing so I used the one in the front center of laptop.


Does anyone know where can I find proper lenovo bolts?
