Question about Logitech X-230 Computer Speakers

2 Answers

Only the right speaker (and the subwoofer) works. The left one doesn't, but it is NOT faulty!

I bought these speakers and my problem is, that no sound comes out of the left speaker. But I tried it with my mp3 player and ... then it works! I already bought a new soundcard and it still doesn't work. I have no idea what could be the problem (and I already searched in many German boards). HELP! :(

If you have ear-phones you can put them in the headphone-opening of the right speaker. Not the whole thing, but only half of it.

Go to Start/Programs/accessories/entertainment/volume control. And check the left channel as not be muted by ticking the mute box. Check also all other sources of channel control- via the sound card and the computer built in one.

Static coming from speakers

Not much information here but I will try my best, could be a problem with the cable your using between the speakers and the mp3 player, you could have a dry joint, if it's like a "hum" sound your getting it's a bad ground, without the mp3 playing plugged in tap the end of the stereo minijack cable with the speakers turned up? hear the 50hz buzz - if the interference sounds the same it's most likely a bad cable or bad connector on the speakers. I would need to either hear the interference to determine what fault it is or if you can describe it better i.e. what it sounds like.

Can't get the speakers to work?

Have you bought them new? Try using an mp3 player to test them. If they're working fine with another device, the problem is your main device, the computer or else.
If it's a computer, try reinstalling your audio drivers, better do it in the safe mode.
If it's just another mp3 player or a similar small device, try using that device with another speaker or headphone to find out, whether it's the speakers, that's causing the problem or not.
If the speakers are not working, return them to the place you bought them.

No sound from speakers

Test the speakers by plugging them into something you know has a jack that works, like an iPod or MP3 Player. If the speakers work on that then the issue is with your computer. If it does not work it may be the speakers. Make sure all the plugs are securely connected for both power and sound. If the speakers do work make sure that the computer isn't muted. If the sound is on try using a different port like the headphone port. See if sound comes out of the speakers then. If it still isn't working you may want to try uninstalling the sound drivers and downloading the latest ones to install.

I bought a x-530 5.1 and i cant seem to get all the speakers to work

First you have to connect them correctly to your sound card (green=Front, Black=back, orange= central+woofer)
Then set your sound card from it's drivers to 5.1 output.
All 5.1 sound cards should have a 5.1 sound test for each speaker, if not try a mp3 in windows media player.
Remember you have to set 5.1 output in each program to have sound in each speaker.

Hello, have you got any headhones? If yes, then plug them into your laptop and play a cd or run something from youtube...can you hear any sound?
Do you have a portable radio or mp3 player? If yes, plug your speakers into the earpiece socket on either one of will be able to get sound out of them if they are working. This is a good test of your loudspeaker system as the output from a radio or mp3 player is of a similar level as that of a pc or laptop soundcard.
Let me know how you get on,..and don't forget to vote!

Logitech speakers will only play on 2 speakers not 5

Liamog, i bought the exact same speakers and sound card, and i had the exact same problem as you. I tried for days to fix it and it turns out that its only a setting you have to enable in your sound card settigns. If you go into your EAX console for your creative sound card you will find a thing that sams CMSS 3D, and all you have to do is select the button that says Enable CMSS 3d surround. I hope this will fix your problem. Alex.
