Logitech microphone stuffed up my Computer Speakers!

I can't use my computer speakers after I plugged in and tried but failed to set up my BRAND NEW microphone that I got only yesterday

When I un plugged it the speakers don't work even when every volume bar is high and they are plugged in
The speakers only Work in my Logitech Headphones but the sound in the headphones on the computer is echoing.
Why did this happen? I have been trying to set up my microphone for around 20 minutes but it's not playing and recording my voice! That's the only thing I want it to do, but It doesn't do it!
I'm getting a bit annoyed at it. Grrrrrrrrrr >:(

There is a humming problem to my sound logitech Z 5500..

The buzzing sound could be caused by a few different things. First thing is to check all the connections to ensure they are indeed plugged in well. Then check to see if you have a microphone plugged in, if so unplug it and see if the buzzing stops. You can also try going into the sound properties on your computer and muting the microphone in the software. If that doesn't solve the issue, it may be an the environment and the speakers are picking up on electrical noise from another device or another cable that isn't properly shielded.

I have had a new PC and my speakers do not seem to work?

Its probably the settings in sound. In Control Panel - Microsoft - open the sounds folder and look at the settings, try the mixer settings and make certain the volumes are up, check mute isn't ticked, look for any setting that stops you hearing the sound. Are the speakers plugged into the speaker output or have you plugged thewm into the microphone input? Good luck Bruce Boogie

Look on the back of your computer for GREEN and PINK and BLUE sockets.

PINK - plug a microphone into this socket.
BLUE -- plug an audio-device (CD-player, iPod, cassette deck) into this "audio-in" port
GREEN - plug your speakers into this "audio-out" port.

Connect the speakers to an AC power-outlet.

Nexxtech wireless mouse Model 2616561 that won't work. Batteries have been changed; resets have been pushed. I'm stuck, Any ideas I am on a dell Inspiron 600 m. Also tried on a Gateway Notebook. Nothing....

If you have tried it on another computer and its still failing then sorry but most likely the mouse is stuffed. Buy a new one. Go for Logitech, its the best brand for reliability.

I plug in my logitech microphone it is the usb microphone used for guitar hero world tour. It has worked fine in the past but now it doesnt. What do i do!?

Plug in your mic

Check your audio settings

Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

Click "Recording" tab.
To set required mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

If the mic fails to respond - Interrogate your Device Manager for 'information triangles' indicating driver problems

I connected my Logitech speakers to my PC but only 3 of my 5 speakers are working

Try again and if the fault continues take them back to the shop and tell them your problem.
You may have to take you resit or proof of purchase to receive a refund or exchange.
In this case if that fails contact Logitech customer support and explain the problem.
Who know if you luckily you could get a brand new speakers for free if the product is indeed faulty...

Microphone plays my voice but doesn't record it

I agree with anuragmi but also want to add check that mic is plugged into the input of the soundcard and if all else fails try it on someone else computer and if it works there is an issue with your soundcard or settings. Good luck.

Proper set up

Try to google the brand name and get the user's manual. Usually the extra cords plug into one of the other speakers and then one to the computer. Sound card could be an issue but I doubt it.
