Loss of sound to Logitech Z560

I bought the 560s about 4 years ago and love them no end. However about 2 months ago i lost sound to one of the front speakers. I know that the speaker is fine but i think that the control centre may have a loose wire or something because my brother has the same system and his control centre works with my system. Shortly after this i lost sound to both back speakers. Again, i have tested the satelites and know that they work fine so i believe i need to work on the circuit board. Any ideas?` Thanx, Harlan

Re: loss of sound to Logitech Z560

I repaired Z-560 speakers with a defective left front channel by chopping off one of the input leads close to the 3.5 mm stereo jack that goes into the PC and joining on the leads from a new one. At first I thought the fault lay in the main amplifiers in the sub woofer unit but I was wrong and it turned out to be far simpler to fix than I anticipated.

Harlan, look for a thing called a "cold solder joint" It might be hard to see, but the solder lifted from the connection. Most likely cause, heat.

Hi Roxanne
Sounds as though the power-supply might be faulty. As you turn up the volume more power is required from the supply and it's not delivering - hence the light fading.

I bought a logitect with 5 small speakers but i have 3 imput but my computer has only one. how do i connect

Unless *********** board was bought years and years and years, and even years ago, you should by default have at least three jacks. Headphones, or sound out; micorphone, and a line input or second out put. You can adjust your settings in the control panel under audio devices to have a least two (2) outputs, in which case you want to connect the green and black. You should have instructions that came with the system to show you guidelines for setting up the speakers, but you can then use your matrix feature to mimmick surround sound!

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.
