Re: speakers produce effect noise but no music...

Check to make sure you have not lowered volume or muted any sounds--- go to speaker icon in tray, double click and check to make sure all sounds are on! Hope this helps.

Logitech Z313 Speakers stopped producing sound, I have tried playing music, the green bar showing music is moving (under the speaker button on windows 7), but the speakers are not giving off a sound.

Pretty much the same happened to me. There are two wires coming from the wired remote control. One has a green plug which plugs into your sound system (computer sound) and the other connects to the Sub Woofer assembly. Feel this later cable for a harden section. It will probably be closer to the Subwoofer, but may be anywhere along it. This cable will have been cooked by overheating (Playing sound at full volume for over long periods of time.) . You will feel probably a 6" to1' section that is a tad stiffer and the plastic will crumble. You will need to cut a few inches into the normal cable and remove the bad section. Then strip and tin, the cables and connect them individually . Connect (tin, solder and seal them individually: ground to ground, white to white, red to red, blue to blue, green to green, purple to purple). Depending on the electrical tape you use- there will be a thick bulge in the cord, but it should work fine... or you can connect the severed cable to the original source to avoid the bulge ... but I did not want to shorten my remote any more than I had to.

I don't know to connect Logitech speaker to my computer.

Plug the green stereo cable to your PC (Green port on PC too)
Connect the black connector (Round shape) to the back of the sub-woofer (big box)
Play music on your PC, should work like a charm...

Hopefully you have already tested the PC to work fine and produce sound. Else you will need to t/s the PC to fix it...

if the PC is probably broken / port is broken - you can connect your iPOD or other music player's green port too - will work just fine!

Two speakers hum noise

Very doubtful that hum issue is ground potential difference from multiple power outlets as power cord is not grounding type (it is transformer isolated). I do agree that it is good practice to connect all audio equipment to common power strip though, especially with pro sound. Check the audio cords connecting your speakers to the coumputer sound card: 1) Make sure they are connected to the correct jacks and plugged in all the way, 2) wipe the connectors off with a clean paper towel wetted with a smidge of WD-40, 3) replace cords if all else fails. I have also seen solder joints fail on the power supply capacitors (due to vibration) causing hum -- but leave this repair to an electronics technician due to dangerous voltages.

I have a Toshiba & my speakers make a really horrible sound whenever the laptop is moved. Is this a defect? I think I should take the computer back. It does it when I am streaming music !

it is due to electromagnetic waves produced by the laptop

it is not a defect

No sign of life in external notebook speakers

  1. If the powerlight is turning on some times and off sometimes, Then it may be a problem with the powersupply connected to the speakers. Check it.
  2. If the speakers are on and are not playing, Then try playing some music through alternate source like ipod,walkman etc.If the speakers are playing with alternate music source, The try reinstalling the audio drivers of your note book.
  3. If not then your speakers might have fried up due to some reason.

I had the same problem: speakers worked, but clicked whenever they were on. They are actually Compaq speakers connected to a Dell computer. I solved the problem by moving the speakers about 12 inches farther away from my wireless router. Very easy!
