Question about Logitech Z-340 Computer Speakers

Logitech z-3 speaker system faulty wiring, pls help?

Hi i have a Ligitech Z-3 2.1 speaker system which i use for my pc. The problem is that the wiring seems to have developed a short. The bass box crackles when the wire is moved and it is now affecting the left speaker in that it is lower than the right and cuts in and out intermitantly. Whats really annoying is that it has just one main cable which plugs straight into the bass box then splits into two up to the speakers and is fixed and then it has separate power cable. I was wondering if this could be replaced or is it possible to locate a short? I now have to tape the wiring down to stop it moving and crackling. I cant take much more, lol any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Dee

    The speakers are hardwired which means they wire directly into the speaker with no plug in connections apart from the power. As above the speakers are both connected by one cable which splits into 2 goind to each speaker and then another wire going straight into the separate volume control. At the other end there is a connector with pins that goes straight in to the bass box

    i have the same problem!! i think its the way the plug is made...not a short, the little prongs in the plug just aren't long enough and get loose. there is a little screw that i THINK locks the plug in place but i haven't had much luck..

Obviously,the wires/cables have been damaged. Thus,the desired results of the sound system were compromised.Yes, the damage that the wires incurred can be remedied.However,for us to have peace of mind and eliminate the worries of the pc itself getting affected, which is more going to be more problematic,call up the store where you purchased the speaker and inquire from them if they can replace the wires,probably with or without you entailing any additional cost or expense.Logitech is a well known brand and it has a wide array of replacement items that goes with the products they are selling.

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?",en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to download Microsoft DirectX 9 or later to support your webcam

Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Logitech speakers :(

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I feel uncomfortable cutting the 3 plugs, splicing them together and soldering to just one plug. What I have in mind is to use 3 barrel jacks (use stereo, the image is for a mono), splice them together and connect a single 3.5 mm plug, homemade splitter.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

No sound


To my knowledge, a Logitech X-540 does not need a driver to operate. However, it is the sound card in the PC that would need drivers. Further, the sound card should be capable of 5.1 surround sound system and should have three (3) sound output which includes. All of these would have individual jacks to match the different plugs of the X-540 (green, black and orange plugs). The X-540 in turn would output the 3 inputs to front pair, rear pair, center and sub woofer. The green goes to the front L/R, the black to the rear L/R and the orange to the center/sub.

Perhaps you can post back with the brand/model of your PC , and your soundcard or motherboard. Knowing your OS would also be helpful.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
