Noise when changing the volume and connecting speaker to anything.
Hi All, I have a Logitech speaker system that I have been happily using over the past 2 1/2 years....(Z-5300). Just yesterday, it started making noise when plugged it to any device (low pitch crackling noise) Symptoms are; Crackling noise coming out of all speakers, especially with high base. I am talking about with volume only half way. When I adjust the volume via the remote, I hear the small bang noise each time I go up one bar up on the volume control. I do connect speaker to both my DVD player and PC, and it's happening to both! Also all speakers and the sub have the same issue.... I have a bad feeling it's the AMP!! Nnnnnooooooooo. I did look at the AUS Logitech website and I believe the warranty is only for 2 years, correct??? Done the turn off\reconnect cables, etc.. No luck. Any ideas anyone, please. Appreciate your advice.

Hi Haley, I also enjoy good Music and excellent sound from my speakers that i have and know what you going through. There is two problems that i see here. One is that your bass speakers is dying on you from the excess bass that has been exerted throught it or have you tried lowering the adjusting bass from the contol panel? Try adjusting the bass and if that doesnt work aleast you've identified your problem. Thanks Haley for using Fixya.Good Luck.
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer
have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or click start control panel administrive tools computer managementdevice manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems hope this helps don

Since this set is hardwired together and the other speakers are working, the only easy fix would be the subwoofer got turned down on the remote volume control. Anything more would mean its broken. If its under warranty take it back. If its not and you know somebody capable, you might have them check for the obvious,bad solder connections on speaker, or and open voice coil on the speaker it self.
In my situation, turning the volume up and down using the speaker volume control will fix the problem. I only have the faint volume problem at some positions of the dial. turning it up usually fixes it. I'm thinking that opening it up and cleaning it might fix the problem (it used to work with an older set of Creative speakers i had).
If that doesnt work im going to try to get a new remote from logitech.
I had the same problem for the longest time with my set of Logitech 540 5.1 speakers. Turns out the solution was pretty simple. All I did was open the Master Volume controller and mute the Microphone. Hissing went to zero. Sound is great now.
I'm sure you went to Control Panel, opened device manager, and and checkeck for any yellow
checks for your sound, video and game
controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your
audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker
configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a
must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its
own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the
internal speakers and turn on the external. Did you forget?
