Question about Logitech X-530 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Only two of the speakers are working

I've read the previous posts but haven't been able to find where my sound card setting is to open up all of teh speakers. Only the front 2 are working, or the back 2 are working, or just the middle one. It's really wierd, I've had these speakers for 2 years, never had a problem. Just moved my comp and unplugged everything, and now they dont work, please let me know what i can do to fix it.

Re: Only two of the speakers are working

Have you used the mic input connection as this is used to split the channels

Humming sound cumin from my creative inspire 4.1 woofer

Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!

Sound went out on speakers

Make sure your speakers actually work by unplugging the speaker jack, turn the volume up the high, wet your fingers and touch all the connections at the same time. You should get a ground humm. If you do get the humm then the next step is to go to my computer, right click on it and go to "properties". Depending on your operating system, you have to locate "Device Manager". Once open look for any devices that have a mark on them indicating that they are not functioning (in this case it would be in your sound device). Reinstall the drivers for the sound card if they show as not working, or go to the drivers tab of the sound card properties and see if you can fall back to a previous driver (windows update supplies driver updates that in many cases prove to be the wrong one, don't use Windows update for drivers). If everything looks good for the sound card in the device manager and your speakers are working then you may need to install a sound card. Good luck

I plugged in my Altec AP3 Speakers to my computer running windows 7. It does not play. i get sound directly from my PC (it had sound prior to plugging in speakers) however the Altec speakers have no sound

You haven't specified from which computer source you connects this device with. If it is from the audio out socket of the PC, your PC's audio card [or onboard audio] dirive hasn't been installed yet. Unlike WinXP, Win-7 haven't all driver software in its driver cab when it is installed. If onboard sound should energize, the mother board CD should be loaded. There is audio and video drive [normally NVIDIA] drive should be installed. Anyway, you have to install the dirve. Now it disabled. Go to the hardware confujuration of your system, and look whether onboard audio is disabled. If it is disabled, inable it. If there is no driver installed to it, the system will ask CD. Then insert the CD into the CD tray, and follow the instructions. If your Win-7 is registered, you can get diretly into Microsoft site, and can download the driver needed. OK.

My subwoofer is making a strange kind of noise n frequently it goes off by itself..this happened since the left front speaker started making some crakling noise every time n later the situation aggravated...


Good day. In regards to your issue your speaker connector might be grounded and there's no way to fix that i''m sorry. But try to do this step first to be sure

1.Make sure your speakers are plugged in, turned on, and properly connected to the
. You've probably checked this, but it's amazing how little problems like this (or the
computer's sound being muted) manage to confound people.

2. Plug the speakers in to another computer, if possible. If the speakers work with the other
computer, proceed to the next step. If they don't, you've probably got a problem within the
speakers themselves.

3. Check sound card driver
> Open your start menu (right-click on the "Start" button and choose "Explore"), and find the "My
Computer" icon. Right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the submenu. Click on the
"Hardware" tab and then the "Device Manager" button.
> Expand the "Sounds, video, and game controllers" heading to find your sound card. The name
will depend on what sound card is installed on your PC. It will most likely have a name
containing "audio." It should look something similar to the example above. You'll know
immediately if there is a major driver error because an exclamation point (!) will show over the
card's icon.
> Double-click on the name of the sound card to open a new window. In the new properties window
click on the "Drivers" tab. If there is no "Drivers" tab then you chose the wrong sound device. Go
back and try again. On the "Drivers" tab, click the "Driver Update" button. Follow the Wizard's
onscreen instructions to update your driver. You can also contact the manufacturer of your PC
for the most recent audio drivers. They can usually be found online.
> If you already have the most recent driver, click the "Uninstall Driver" button. Then restart your
computer. When you restart your computer, the driver should reinstall automatically. If it does
not, install it manually with software (or a download) from the manufacturer.

4. Check the "Windows Troubleshooter". On the "Drivers" tab mentioned in the step above,
there is a button for troubleshooting the device. Click on that button, and follow the instructions
on screen.

5. Check the sound card itself. Properly shut down your PC and then disconnect all cables on
the back of your PC, including the power cable. Open up the CPU, making sure to touch a
grounded metal object (a doorknob or metal desk will work, for example) before opening up the
case. This will discharge any static electricity you have built up, which could damage your
> Locate the audio plug on the back of your PC. The sound card should be in the corresponding
location on the inside of the PC. Remove the sound card and put it back in. The Microsoft site
has detailed directions for installing a sound card; to remove one, simply do the reverse. Once
you have the sound card back in, reattach the cables you unplugged earlier and boot your PC

It this steps didn't work you might consider getting a new one. Hope this help you in someway and thanks for visiting Fixya. Have a wonderful day.

Sound only comes out of 2 out of 5 speakers. I've had a previous set of these and they also had the same problem.

Do all of the speakers plug into the bass, then from the bass to the computer? Seems like the multimedia controller you have right now is either not working or was never meant for that many computer speakers. In this case, you might want to get a sound card. Sound cards will let you plug the sets of speakers (Front, Rear, Sides, etc.) into each of the inputs on the sound cards. The jacks and inputs will be colour coated so you know which one to plug into which one.

No sound no nothing !

make sure :
1- the the speakers are connected to the sub woofer correctly
2- the sound driver is installed on your computer ( you can check that from Device Manager )
3- that you connected the sub woofer jack to the correct jack of your computer
4- the volume parameter is set to highest in your computer

if nothing works out then i suggest connecting the speakers to another device ( like ipod or mp3 player )

if either this won't work then the speakers are obviously corrupted :)

Speakers not working proprerly

This may be in the sound card settings itself. Even though you may have adjusted the Windows settings {if thats what your using} the sound card needs to also be set up for surround. Some sound cards do not support 4 speakers or surround sound systems. Go to Device Manager and find your sound card and manufacture then check there technical support page for info.
