Question about Logitech Z-540 Speaker

Problem with a slight fade out/in

I bought this set few days ago and I am very sattisfied with them, but yesterday I heard that sometimes volume slightly and fast fades out and fades back in. It can be best heard when producing NOISE for testing speakers on creative software, playing(car game...), or when playing music (but very difficulty to notice). And when I tested it on noise I found out it happens only to center end front speakers, rear works normally.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: only left/right have sound during the test

all of the channel are resonding to the test. but you cant notice it bec 5.1 speakers, each channel are designed to respond to a certain frequecies.  the L/R channel your talking about have the mid-range frequecies so it responds clearly compared to other channels...


hope that helps...

SOURCE: both rear speakers on my z540 system play only the left side rear

Hmmm, this sounds like either a driver issue, or a card/compatibility issue. you might try reverting to old drivers(last resort), making shure you have 4.1 enabled in sound control pannel(do this first), triple checking connections/connectors on both the speakers and the card(remember, you only have 5 speakers, not 8) and if you have the headphone-type phone plug for your speakers, you might try making shure that they are compatible with the jacks on your card, although, I would have to know more about your setup to be completely shure.

SOURCE: Sound is Pulsating when music plays

Ahh, I have these speakers and its common when you have the volume knob turned all the way down, to fix it, turn the volume REALLY low in windows, so that way you have to turn the volume knob on the speaker control up to 50-100%. And you will have better sound..... No pulsing

Problem with phone volume with HTC P3452

Yes, there is a setting where you can tell the phone not to automatically adjust the volume, this is set so that if you are in a very quiet place nobody else listens to your phone conversation. Check the settings under PHONE and UN-CHECK the automatically set volume box.
Have fun

Oil light intermittent, fades, sometimes steady

Check the connection where the wire plugs onto the sender unit. If it's loose, or the wire shorts out to the body, it might flicker. If this isn't the problem, unscrew the sender unit and check your oil pressure using an oil pressure gauge screwed into the same hole. The pressure should be above 40 psi if my mind serves me correct. If it's too low you'll have to replace or check the oil pump. Did you replace the oil filter and oil recently? If the filter is blocked or the oil is old it might also cause the pressure to drop too low.

I would check your graphics card control panel. You may have (or someone else) set the contrast or some other setting to low or high. If you are using nvidia you can run the optimization wizard.

Sound fades out on both earphones

The chance of both speakers going bad at same time is remote. Your ipod is at fault and has something wrong with its output circuits. Check to make sure that there is no muting circuit inadvertently turned on.
