Question about Logitech Z-560 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Popping sounds I have had these speakers for a few years and LOVE them, but about couple years ago, I've been getting popping sounds from them.  I hate to get rid of them because I know the speakers are working fine so I've done some research and it looks like the problem is with the control center.  Logitech will not repair it and a control center is hard to come by on ebay so I have couple of questions, 1) can I repair the control center myself or 2) is it possible to replace the 6(?) pin plug that was intended for the control center and replace it with a 2.5mm plug for an mp3 player?  I figured all it needs is an input source and what better solution is there than to turn this awesome system into an ipod system.  Thanks in advance for your input.

We have dish network. when we watch tv we have popping sounds but no popping sounds when liseng to the music stations. our tv is connected to surround system

Have you isolated the problem to the audio receiver? Do you get popping with just the TV speakers on and the receiver turned off.
Are you connected to the receiver with an HDMI , RCA, Coaxial or Optical? If you have multiple choices of audio out ports on the TV or from the Dish box, if that is how you are connecting, try using another source that your receiver will accept. This should help you isolate the problem.

M602 Speaker Problem,.. Popping Sound

This worked for me on my M604: Try inserting/removing a headphone plug into the jack several times to see if that clears the problem.

The "popping" sound is very similar to the sound that the unit makes when inserting headphones into the 'headphone' jack on the back of the unit.

The jack has a contact switch that triggers a relay inside the unit. If that contact switch is 'on the verge' of making contact, slight temperature changes may cause deform closer to it's contact target. The subsequent capacitance build-up and discharge across the gap could explain the cycle of popping noises after the unit warms up.

Popping Audio

You may have blown the speaker and need to replace it. Try at a low volume and then at high to notice any difference, if the popping occurs only at higher volume then it needs replacing. I hope this helps

Centre speaker

Your center speaker is probably busted since you say you here an odd popping noise from it. You will need to get a new center speaker. It is not your sound card unless the same happens if you buy a new center speaker.

Speaker popping when computer is on or off.

I use to get that same sound but only when I first booted up.
Is this only happening when you have the volume up and does it happen if you turn down the sound all the WAY not off
Your MIC could be enable and on boost level.
If you sound is popping from the music or other source is it from all the speakers???
I can try and help

Speakers Popping loudly occasionally. Died for several days. Now working again but still making sounds.

The problem is a burned transistor inside the subwoofer. It depends of country's transistor manufacturer. It is supposed to be of a low quality. It's not important for the scope. Mine is knocked down for a year. I saved the electronic schematic diagram and the transistor specs, but lost. I confirmed the cause opening the subwoofer and examine the board. The indicated transistor surrounded area is burned indeed. If anyone find the article in web, please, post here.

Logitech mm50 very little sound coming from right speaker

Check the cables and see if there is a tear, or unscrew the cover of the speaker (if possible) and see if the contact is frayed or only holding by a couple of wires. This will reduce the sound quality.

If not, the speakers are faulty, and they are not worth replacing. Just purchase a new set.

It is possible that either the speakers or the sound card have an internal fault. The best way to isolate this type of problem is to use a different audio source than your sound card uses in order to test the speakers. You can use a portable CD player, the headphone jack on your CD or DVD drive, or the headphone jack on your VCR, for example. In some instances, the speakers have been known to pick up noise from an external source. This is difficult to isolate as just about every electrical device in your house/office gives off some amount of radio frequency (RF) or electromagnetic interference (EMI) signals. Some of the more common items that can cause noise are: Your monitor Fluorescent lights An uninterruptable power supply (UPS) The computer itself Fans Turn off as many of these devices as possible before you test your speakers. Also, if your speakers are plugged into a power strip or UPS, try plugging them directly into the wall outlet instead. Good luck
