Left Speaker Problem

Hi. I was -just- listening to music and both my speakers were working fine when all of a sudden the left one stopped working. I thought no sound was coming out so I went to Control Panel to verify and noticed that it does emit sounds, but at a veeery low volume. When I put up the volume to its max it sounds like if it were in its lowest setting possible AND it has some sort of static at the same time. What's wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Left Speaker Problem

Sounds like the left channel in the built-in amplifier went out or possibly damage in the connector or cabling. Quick test to eliminate the PC is to connect another set of working speakers or headphones into the PC speaker jack without making any changes. If it works w/o problems then it?s the speakers. You can try plugging the speakers back into your PC and while playing something start wiggling the left channel cables and the main cable that goes into the PC. In particular pay attention to stress points like connectors. If that turns up nothing and you have the appropriate tools and skills you can open the speakers up and test out the solder points for the cables as well. As always make sure your warranty has expired completely before you open them up or start cutting away. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Try another set of speakers to eleiminate the BOSE speakers as being the issue (even cheap ones will do). If the problem does not re-occur, the issue is with the speakers.
If all the speaker jacks are plugged in correctly, I would consider returning this set, as it looks like the issue is within the circuitry of the Woofer

Intermittent problems are always the hardest to diagnose but I would start by going to the device manager and deleting the sound drivers. Then a reboot and as your machine restarts it will reinstall the soundcard drivers and if the game has corrupted the drivers that should your your problem. Should it continue you will need to find updated drivers for Windows 7.

I have a similar reoccuring problem with the left channel on my speakers. All of a sudden, while playing music or whatever, the left channel jusr dies. Turning the system off and then on again from the conrol unit does not remedy the situation. By chance, I discovered a workaround to get the left channel working again: Push the main power switch of the subwoofer until it almost switches off and then release it so that the power is never actually switched off. Now a click is heard in the system and the left channel comes alive again. This is quite annoying and seems to have something to do with switches in the subwoofer. Low quality components may have been used. I 've been thinking of getting another 2.1 system, but it's not easy to find one... Maybe I should open the subwoofer box and go through the switches and possibly hardwire some connections...

Logitech THX Z-2300 only one speaker works. theres something wrong with the input. both speakers work fine but the 1 of the inputs on the subwoofer stopped working, causing only one speaker 2 work

try tapping the speaker box in your palm while the speaker is connected. There might be a bad contact of the wires inside. I had to open up my speaker to find that out. i moved around the wires connected to the cone of the speaker and then started to hear music once i did that. it was the left speaker by the way.

Left speaker suddenly stopped working correctly.

check the plugin going into the back of the computer. it might be loose and only sending the audio to the right channel. Otherwise, check the connections in the back of the speaker.

Labtec LCS-2424 speakers: left speaker stopped working

I have the same problem sir, only the speaker with volume
control works. Earlier I used to twist the volume control this
way and that way to get the sound from the other speaker also.
Now the same technique doesn't work anymore.

Strange problems with Z-2300's

I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

First things First!
1) check on other speakers to see if your iPod work fine
2) check connector for loosing electric connectivity.
3) check with your headphones to see if your iPod play music well.
4) Check, power on the computer spk. you got. or the input that is working right.
Good Luck
