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! :(

    For me, the speaker with the controls on it doesnt work, this can be solved by pushing in the volume knob and keeping it there with sellotape, but obviously this is annoying asit stops me changing the volume...

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.

Hi .. i have just bought a logitech x 530 speaker and only 2 of the speaker parts work .. can you please give me some solution advice?

Hi names Rui i like to help you by giving you step by step instruction in propely hocking up your logitech speakers:


1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.

2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.

3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.

4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.

5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.

6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.

7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.

8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.

9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.

10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...

hope this will help you solve your problem.

Hello. I just bought your spa4310 speakers and I linked correctly the subwoofer to my computer (Acer with realtek drivers) and the speakers (red plug to red socket - white plug to white socket). The...

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

My lenovo y 430 has no sound for hedset & subwoofer doesn`t work. ... and right speaker works but left one doesn`t what should i do?

Make sure that the correct playback device is set as default in sound properties.
If all is well there then you could try a pair of headphones to see if the sound is working.
If headphones work ok then it is down to your built in speakers, not much you can do unfortunatly unless you are still under warentee

JBL Creature 2.1 Left Speaker not working


Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...

I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).

This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.

Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)

Sound from 3 channels only

Hi, first of all did you verify with the manual if it is possible to run a testsignal through all 5 channels?
One of the most common problems in this case is the basic settings of the device. If you don't have the manual, mostly you can download them from manufacturers website. Chances are that for some reason the setting is set 3.0 stereo (also known as 3channel sound) which is always the 2 fronts and the centre speaker.

Best thing to do it is take a DVD with THX on it and run the THX setup, it will send test signal to all channels.
