Question about Logitech S200 Computer Speakers

Interference and noise

I bought these speakers two days ago. I tried in several places and with different audio sources but the problem persists. A local station of radio interferes (93,9 MHz). A hum noise is heard. The problem is only listened to in subwoofer. The problem intensifies when separating the speakers from the subwoofer. With a low volume, approximately 10%, the noise and the interference are quite annoying. These problems are normal in this model? Thanks! Sorry for my bad english :)

Re: interference and noise

You have to open the sub and move the transformer far away from the audio circuit. Seal the holes left by the screws. It will solve the hum problem. I'm not sure about the radio station interference, I used to have that same problem before only when the speakers where connected to my laptop and between 7:30pm and 8:30 pm (pretty weird). Now it doesn't happen anymore (long before I fixed the hum problem). Good luck.

Re: interference and noise

When I moved to a new house I had the same problem. My dell computer speakers had been working for a couple days. Then one day were we had a party my cousin Aryana was playing with one of my babies I had. So the next day I turned on my computer and volume up when i logged in my volume wasn't working , so I ran down stairs and told my mommy and she said I was missing some black cord that llooked like the yellow cord that are suppost to be plugged in. So my mom's friend Ben came over so I couuld go on the internet and I mentioned I had no volume. He said I was missing the black cord too, but then when I went outside to tell my parents that. Then I came back up stairs and the black cord was rapped around my baby doll my cousin was playing with.So the reason why you might not have volume is your black or yellow or one or the other or both might not be plugged in. Or if you don't even have speakers you can use some ear phone plug in things that you use for cd players. Hopefully I helped your problem.

Re: interference and noise

There is nothing you can do about it, your sub probley has a built in amplifier right? the only thing you can do is live with it, like most things they normally have a little fcc sticker that states "this device must accept any interference received, including interference that cause undesired operation".

SOURCE: radio Interferance on my logitech computer speakers

You may be now living too close to a radio station. Sometimes when this is the situation, anything electronic gear plugged into a wall socket can act like an antenna, thus receiving signals from local radio stations.

Noise, I get a buzzing noise out of my speakers when i hook up my interface with a jack cable any help ?

If the buzzing is louder or softer, directly relative to the volume level, it is signal interference.

99% of the time, when you get the buzzing or "air" sound, it's the cable. To give you an idea of how serious this is, each of my speakers has a Monster THX Ultra 1000 speaker wire running to it, which can cost roughly $100.00 each. This is for the sole purpose of eliminating that air noise or buzzing.

When running speaker cables or AV cables, you don't want them to run parallel to each other, unless they are several feet apart. If they have to cross paths, you want them to cross perfectly perpendicular to each other so as to minimize the amount of contact they may have.

Speaker wire should also be twisted copper (unless running fiber optic cable, which would be extremely rare). Many people try to use solid strand, but a lot of the signal is lost, even when well insulated.

If your speakers are close to anything electronic, try to move them away from the source, or move the source from the speakers.

If you have a GSM phone, the phone can cause distortion in your speakers as well, but with the newer phones, that only happens when it reverts to the older tower technology.

It could be the source of your sound input as well. If you have a bad connection at the source (assuming your computer?), or the source itself just isn't a very good quality, this can also cause that buzzing or air sound.

Hope this helps.

Bose Companion 3 Speakers make a popping noise.

No solution i'm afraid. But i have the exact same problem. Terrible cracking interference. Unplug everything else in the house and they still crackle. Very annoying. Decided to buy a new woofer on ebay as that seemed to be the problem with possible faulty switch, but the new woofer has a different connection for the volume control. Incredibly frustrating. If you have any luck let me know. Bose want eighty quid to repair...

Speakers will not "turn on",

Hi. You might want to try a different set of speakers or try the Altec Lansing on a different computer to isolate the issue. This can tell you if the problem is with the computer's sound card or your speakers. If the speakers won't work with any PC, try checking if the wires are all good and/ or soldered properly. Be cautious while doing this. make sure the speakers are not plugged in to any power source. I hope this helps. :-)

My speakers no longer have sound, even though the green light is turned on and they are plugged in correctly

There could be several small annoyances happening here. The first thing I suggest is try hooking the speakers audio (green) cable to a different sound source, such as an MP3 player, or cd player, or a portable GPS. If any of those devices allow your speakers to produce sound, then the issue is NOT with the speakers, and you need to look at your audio drivers/settings. Make sure your audio driver is installed, and make sure your audio settings are not muted. You can call your pc manufacturer to get help in determining your driver status.

I have just bought some Harman Kardon SoundSticks II. When I plug them into my iPhone, they are perfect, however, I want to use them with an airport express and as soon as I plug them in I get a loud...

this is from Harman support site First you need to determine where the problem is. Try connecting your speakers to another audio source such as a portable CD player. If you receive the proper sonic results, this will tell you that the problem is in the computer and/or soundcard setup. In this case there are many things to try. 1. Interference may be causing the distortion. Please check all surrounding electrical objects and place the speakers away from the problem object. 2. Ensure that the speaker input jack is pushed all the way into the appropriate jack. Check all the connections and secure them. 3. The volume on your soundcard may be set too high. Decrease the volume in your volume control panel. Also check the volume and tone controls on the speaker. 4. Sound card or audio source material may cause a problem. *note* the quality of the audio source is also a factor (i.e. bad recording). The compatibility of your CD/DVD rom drive, soundcard and software will contribute to the quality of your sound.
Good luck

Bose companion 3

This is a common problem it seems with the electronics within the speaker set. (Companion 3 with sub and remote pod, aka, 'puck' = help desk support term)
I bought the multimedia speaker set in 2004 and had it replaced in 2005 because the 'puck' would not turn on (no orange light nor green light.) So I called help desk and they accepted the warranty exchange and I mailed the entire system (speakers and all) back to Bose in Markham, Ontario, Canada and they sent it back several weeks later. It worked 5-6 years after that as it is 2009 now, and it has the same problem again (no light on the puck). So I called help desk again and was ran through the same tests again (on/off, power plug off, various audio inputs, etc.) and the guy said to mail it in and they'd fix it as a non-warranty item. Cost: $85(Cdn) for repair + taxes, and $39 for remote pod.
So the sound that I got to enjoy from the Companion 3 system was amazing but electronic quality is very poor. For a set that cost above most other home user sets at FS and BB, it is substandard longevity.
I like Bose and have no complaints about the sound, but I will not buy another Bose multimedia package because at $350 (in 2004), I would expect it to outlast other sets. My friend bought a Logitech speaker set from another company in 2003 and is laughing at me as he realizes this is my second set and it hasn't even lasted as long as his own set.

I have the same as yours, my solution I placed the speaker with controls closest to the CPU, just less than 10 inches away and the excess wires "especially the Input line" is rolled up and wrapped it with a foil, "the silver wrapper"... So far I have filtered the noise that interferes with my listening...

I hope it works on your system... Mine is Creative SBS20... What's yours anyway?
