Re: speaker out connection

I've got the same speaker system and have had trouble with the satellite speaker jacks causing them to cut in and out.

I disassembled the subwoofer to get at the jacks and repair them by resoldering some loose connections.

What exactly do you need as far as wiring descriptions?

Wire on one speaker is loose...can get sound only by jiggling and holding wire just so...can I replace the wire? how? thanks!

Which speaker? Assuming you mean the external wires, one speaker has as simple twin lead, but the one with the volume controls is much more complex. Off hand if you are asking, you may not have the required skills to make the repair. :(

I own a logitech Z-2300 set, but recently had my left satellite speaker stop working. With few tests, found the speaker is indeed the problem and not any of the subwoofer jacks or input signal. After...

Your speakers' lead wire has a break in it. Lead wire is one that goes to the speker paper cone, from the connection point. It is a brided copper wire, very thin and flexible. If you be carefull, you can repair it. Speaker lead wire can be bought from electronic spare part shops. Just find out the size use in your speaker, buy a short lenth of it, say half a meter or so [even though it needs a few centimeters]. Look on the spekares leadwire fittings; you can compare the fittings of the other leadwire, and replace it. It is a very keen and sensitive work. After replacing the wire, fix it with some sort of rubber based gum. That is all. OK.

I've lost sound in one speaker

Check the wire for frays, missing insulation, broken area, loose fitting, etc. It sounds like there is something that is not making a proper connection. "Fiddling" makes it better leads me to believe that a bent area, frayed wire or such has it not making a full connection. You may need to replace the wire to that speaker in order to correct the problem. If the unit is still in warranty I'd suggest contacting a Logitech repair center for this. If it is not then you can do this yourself if you are comfortable working with a soldering iron. Just make sure you use properly rated speaker wire and connect the wires properly. Hope this helps.

My Logitech 2300 Right Speaker Wont Work The Problem Seems To Be The Port In The Back That You Connect The Wire To But I Dont See Why It Still Wont Work

It can be the speaker has a short in the wire. I had several speakers have a little short in wire. They would work only if i moved wire a certain way or play with it. Had to open up one to find the short and fix it.

I need a replacement for my logitech z-2300 speaker wired remote control. How and where can I get one?

To the two people with problems. This sounds a bit odd, but do you still have the broken remotes? I'm looking for a broken one. I'd pay shipping and throw a few bucks your way if you could send it to me.

Base Spearker not working

I got mine today (not new) and took it apart and saw two wires that SHOULD go to the bass speaker completely off. It seems to me that there was a line of units that the wires were too short and the workers just pulled them out. I would take it back if i were y'all (if it wasn't from a thrift store like mine :) )

Left speaker not working...

hi, there's a big possibility that the issue you encountered in your speaker might be caused by a faulty or shorted wire. You can check it by inspecting for any sign of damage on the wire and try connecting your left speaker to a different input source.

Hum and left channel doesnt work

Are these new speakers? My sub hummed when I had it in plugged in to the wall outlet with a light switch connected. As for the speker not working maybe a wire is loose inside the speaker cabinet. If it was dropped or something.
