Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

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.

Re: Noise when changing the volume and connecting speaker...

Firstly check the cable, some times it may in loose contact
otherwise any radiation equipment is located near by the amplifier,
sol. replace the location of the amp. and check cable loose contact

other wise
it is due to its amplifier IC problem, it is weak due to over load signal, or temperature of IC make leakage
sol.replace IC

Try adjusting the bass and if that doesnt work aleast you've identified your problem.

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.

MY speakers are making weird noise, i have logitech x240 and on youtube i can only listen audio, not voice. Everything is connected but its still making weird noise.

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 management device 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

My logitech z 2300 subwoofer is not producing sound

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.

Output port for left speaker Z2300

I've been having the same problem actually.

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.

Constant loud muffled noise coming from the sub and speakers.

Try playing with the connection, sounds to me maybe the jack is going bad or has a shorted connection. Plug it in and out slowly to see if that's the issue.

Logitech x530 hissing noise

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.

Logitech x530 surround sound speakers sometimes make noise

Hi Nick
As you talk I remember a spair speakers I have a long time ago, brand Creative 5600, has a bad resistor inside the speaker SB, or board, you also check for bad cable at the back or static.
another thing is your volume control, sometimes if you down a few notch you may ...not feel the hit or beep, but check things first.
good luck

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?
