Question about Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

No sound from one speaker

I recently noticed that one speaker has stop playing anything. I don't think the speaker itself is broken because when i plugged it into a different port it produced sound. I'm not quite sure what has happened but i do think it has something to do maybe with the cables? or the specific port on the subwoofer? i haven't made any changes to my whole set up so i dont think that is an issue either. Has this happened to anyone else and can someone please help me. any ideas are appreciated.


note.
system is maybe a year and a half old.
i keep it under my desk. its not really dusty or anything.
no damage has happened to it.
i have it connected to my 360 and also use it to play music from my ipod.

If you have used the same cable to plug it in a different port, then i would say it is not the cable. it's more of a port issue or it's just that the sound card does not send a signal to that channel anymore. try using your unit on other sound systems and see if you get the same result. or you can set your pc to run on 2 channel mode only to test if the two speakers (L front and L rear, in this example) can produce the sound on the left channel (you do the same for the right, obvioulsy). if that still exibits the same symptoms, then it is definitely a port issue.

hope that helps :)

My Altec Lansing VS4121 played excellent sound, even at high volume untill recently. A friend had borrowed them for weeks and I got them back recently. Played music to find out that sound of main woofer...


Hi there,
I think that some wirings inside the main woofer or the tray holding it might have loosed. It could be the speakers were accidentally dropped or anything.
You can bring it to a local store Best Buy, Staples, etc. have it checked by one of them technicians or to see if it can be put back to it's place. I'm no speakers expert but that's the only reason I could think of.
If you are comfortable opening the speaker covers and checking inside the speakers then you can also try to check for some loose parts.
Hope this helps!

Sound driver is installed well. When a sound file (mp3) is played there is no playback sound from in built speakers. Presario c755tu.


What program is playing the sound file? If you want to be completely sure that its not a codec issue then play it with VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ - VLC can play absolutely anything usually.
If it still doesnt play then it can only be one of two things:
1. - corrupt driver / software issue - confirm this by seeing if anything else plays through the speakers, if you get noise from other things then its not this.
2. - Broken speaker - if you cant get anything at all to make noise, and its not 1, then it could be a faulty speaker issue. Technician needs to look at it.

Finally if its only one file obviously it could be a corrupt or broken file, but I'm sure you've tested on more than one file.

Headphone jack broken speakers wont work


Yes, since the Headphone pin is stuck in the Jack, you are not getting audio from Speakers.

You should have noticed that connecting the headphones to the Jack will block the audio coming from the Speakers and the same is the current situation.

You can either try removing the blocked part using a Tweaser or get it repaired.

you have a poor connection somewhere in your signal path. This sort f problem could be anywhere from inside the speaker box to the output stages of the amp. speaker protection relay in the amp, or even a noisy vol control or dry solder joints in the output stages of the amp. eliminate anything external to the amp by swapping right for left and test, spray the speaker protection relay in the amp with 2-26 or burnish the contacts with a piece of white business card cut to fit into the contacts. You will see deposits on the card that you have cleaned from the contacts. Carefully inspect the soldering about the output stages(heatsink area) and re-solder any poor or cracked solder joints. Good luck... these are the most common problems. I can go further in if the problem remains after you have done this. Good luck
