Question about Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Sound volume fluctuates

I'm not sure how to describe it, but my sound's volume fluctuates up and down at a fairly quick pace. It's not a big fluctuation, just enough to ruin music and make you mad. It doesn't do it all the time, but most of the time it does. My old speakers never did it so I know it has to be the X-540. I'm not sure if buying a sound card would fix it or not but I don't want to buy one if that won't solve it and my onboard sound is actually very good.

    I have the same problem, I posted a topic about it. I discovered it only happens to center and front speakers to me, rear works normally(using test noise with creative software). Some people told me that it can be consequence of current because many logitech speakers have problems with it. So try to use UPS or other power slot.

    Same problem, X-540 speakers.
    Mine is on all speakers. I e had the speakers for about two years now and it started appearing just recently. Does anyone know if this might be an inherent problem with this set of speakers?

Sound is Pulsating when music plays


Ahh, I have these speakers and its common when you have the volume knob turned all the way down, to fix it, turn the volume REALLY low in windows, so that way you have to turn the volume knob on the speaker control up to 50-100%. And you will have better sound..... No pulsing

Got t7900`


Hi,

I have had that problem with a T7700/T7900 speaker system.

Disconnect the remote control from the subwoofer. Then what you need to do is unscrew the remote volume/bass control unit (4 little screws). Swab the contacts on the volume dial with a cotton bud (q tip) denaturated alcohol or even perfume will work. Make sure you do it several times until all the slight dirt that is causing the volume fluctuation/spikes to happen. Also remove any remnants of cotton that might get stuck.Now you'll have it working as new as long do not cause any other damage to the unit.

Cheers,
Daniel

Fluctuation in sound output on Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 speakers


Hi Paulus
A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.
