Question about Logitech X-230 Computer Speakers

2 Answers

Blown Subwoofer I bought the Logitech x-230 in the USA where the voltage is 120v and by mistake plugged it into a 240v socket. The speakers buzzed for a few secs and stopped working. How can I repair them to work on a 120v socket? Is there s fuse?

Re: Blown Subwoofer

Did you manage to fix this problem ... i am afraid i might have made the same mistake. But I used a 220V-110V adapter that I have been using for the notebook. I dont understand why that doesnt work in the case of the speaker. Is there any way I can make it work again?

Hi , you will have to open the box and check for any fuses along the power input line, replace them if any and try it out but i strongly believe what happened there is that you fried the power supply in your subwoofer , there is no easy fix to this , you will need to replace the transformer and possibly check to see if the rectification circuit is damaged too, and the amplifier too. Good luck

Buzzing sound on the logitech speakers (x-230) evrytime it is turned on.

could be any of 3 different problems
1: the intedrated port you are plugged in to is beginning to fail.
2: the pci card you are plugged in to needs to be checked to insure its seated in the slot correctly, or its failing as well.
3: the amplifyer in the speaker system is failing.

im sure you didnt want to here any of these selections , but its more than likely 1 of the 3.

I bought logitec speakers but withought subwoofer is there any way i can connect them to the pc withough the subwoofer or no?

the speaker with the subwoofer may not work as the speaker needs a power supply to boost the sound from the PC.....even if you connect to the sound jack of PC using some adaptor it may not give out the required sound.....i mean it will need amplifyer, the job of the amplifyer is normaly done by the big box that comes along with the speakers (called subwoofer).....

My logitech x-210 speakers make a buzzing sound

Sounds like the speakers are not plugged in to the computer, or are plugged in to the wrong socket.

The speaker socket on a PC is usually green, a 3.5mm stereo socket.

I accidentally connected VS4121 speakers to 240V instead of 120 V

Hey i am also from india. Every speaker unit has a built in fuse unit which protects it from the over voltage. just replace that with a new fuse of same rating. if you are not sure of what rating the fuse is, consult with the electrical shops. and then ask them to give a 240v to 110 or 120v AC to AC dimmer. just use this with your speakers and they will run with no problem. but if it is a serious damage inside then you need to take it to a service center.

Will my Logitech X-230 speakers work in a country with 220-240 V power outlets or would i need an adapter to use them there? If i connect them directly to the 240 V outlet, will they run properly or would...

Check the back of your sub to check your voltage range. You will see something like this: 110V-120V or 110V-220V. If you see the later, you are ready to go. If you see 110-120V only, you will need a power converter to power your speakers as well as any other 110-120V equipment. But no matter what, if it is 110-120V DO NOT PLUG DIRECT TO 220V!! It will blow your speakers. (I lived in Germany for 11 years.)

My puppy chewed through the cord for my a/c adapter, I just took the speakers into Circuit City, and they found me a workable replacement (the replacement isn't BOSE, but it works just fine).  Hope that helps!

Unwanted sound from subwoofer.

switch your subwoofer off from the socket for at least 30 minutes and check if the noise is still there,if its still there open it and play a movie then press it lower if the sound stops then you will have to put some toilet papers at the back of it ,thats what I did to mine.
