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?

Why does the volume fluctuate when playing any connected equipment to my receiver?


You are describing one of the inherent problems in assembling various pieces of equipment into a complete system. Unless your Kenwood receiver has some provision for equalizing the various input levels, you will just have to adjust each one manually.

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Volume Fluctuations. My amp (fender hot rod deluxe) will occasionally have volume fluctuations when I'm playing. The changes usually occur when I've moved my setup from one place...


First thing would be try another guitar with the amp. This will eliminate if it's a problem with the guitar or the amp itself. If the guitar is working properly then check all the tubes to be sure they are all seated into there slots completely. Depending on how much use they have been played it may be a good suggestion to then replace your tube's. Occationally the tubes will start loosing power, making sound fluctuate up and down or distortion sounding static in background noise. You will notice a big difference with newer tube. But remember the bias must be set correctly to match the new tubes so they won't over heat. You can check out youtube for setting the bias. Anyway this is my suggestion and I wish you good luck.

Sound fluxuates,crackling sound samsungTX-R3079WH sound goes up and down automaticly


If the sound FLUCTUATES up & down, try turning off the AutoVolume in the sound menu. You didn't say if it's one or all speakers crackling. Crackling is either a speaker or circuitry issue. Adjust the balance away from the speaker that crackles, if it stops, that speaker is probably "fried". If it still crackles, I'd turn off the speakers and run the sound thru a stereo for the quick, cheap fix. My Samsung (10+ years old to be fair) crackles due to a circuit issue but if I SMACK the left side speaker (behind which is the sound board and side panel connectors) it stops for a while. Maddening. I think I broke it squeezing it into the furniture it's in, pressing on the protruding RCA plugs. Dumb design.

Audio fluctuation with volume


It is common theese days to have volume fluxuation while watching TV when viewing a HD show and going to a commercial break it gets ungodly loud, that's from digital to analog variance. However what you describe and the way you describe it leads me to believe its a chip in the receiver. The only way to really know for sure would be to hook up a DVD to your TV input and play a long movie " the godfather" or something like that which is a three hour or so movie and listen for the issue to occur. If it does, you know your receiver needs to be serviced. If it doesn't, swap your cable box or DSS with another one if possible and test again. It will take some time, but it won't cost you anything! Hope this helps. If you still have issues with it, send a response and we can try other things as well.

Amp or guitar??


I can say with a fair amount of certanty that this is the control knob on your guitar, these are fairly cheap and if you have any mechanical ability you can replace it yourself, there will be some soldering involved so if you can't do that I would take it to your local music store and most have some sort of repair department, this shouldn't be a big bill to get fixed.

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
