Infam Several things could have happened here. 1 Sounds like a possible reverse which may have reset the ICP in the control module (this controls the channels to the other speakers as to the frequency in which it would be transmitting your sounds). Without getting in to tools and things needed to fix that {which I dont think you want to buy just for this} you may want to just have it sent in for repair. 1 You can try logitech with a basic explanation and see what price they give you, you may luck out depending on the age. Here is another link to someone. I dont know where you live so not to sure who around you has a repair shop.

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.

I just created my own pc. i decided to go against getting a sound card. My sound works coming from the mobo. I hear the music from my display moniter speakers. When i connect my headphones to the front...

You need to change the sound profile from 2 speaker system to surround sound. You will find this in the control panel area program.
Hope this helps.

You'll only be able to get true surround sound utilizing all the speakers if you have a sound card with multiple outputs (usually color coded as Green, Black, and Orange). Plug the satellite speakers into the subwoofer and run the three input wires (Green, Black, Orange) to your multi-source output.
If you only have one output on your PC (common), you should just connect the green wire and press the "matrix" button on the system. This will just duplicate the sound output into the other channels but is not "real" surround sound.
Hope that helps.

[logitech 5.1 x-540] my front speakers arent working but i have 5.1 channel sound card

Go through systematically and check all connections. Start at your PC. Is the soundcard set-up correctly? Is it set to 5.1, stereo? Next, look at the wires. Are each of the wires plugged into the correct places? (you may need to refer to an instruction manual for this) At the other end of the wire, are they plugged into the right places on the back of the subwoofer? Are the front satellites plugged into the right places? After this, are the speakers themselves functional?

Usually, I find it's a connection along the way, nothing more serious.

You may have a more serious problem, in which case it would be difficult to fix, but for now, there's a simple check for you.

Surround Sound Speaker

It sounds like you need to define the speakers to the PC. Find the icon that controls your Sound Card and dabble with it.

How do I install logitec speakers for surround sound home theater

That depends on how they are connected and what is their source. In essence all you need to do is to connect some wires and plug in some cables.
But the ones  from X-140 are just 2 so surround - for which you need 5+1 - is out of the question.

No sound from Creative Labs Speakers- Please help

to localised your problem, try to plug your speakers to other sound source like mp3 player ,stereo system. if still no sound coming from it,your problem is within the speaker system. perhaps the audio power amplifier ic inside, need to be replaced.

No sound from logitech x-230 subwoofer

Try the following steps:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
