LED light fades as soon as turned on and no sound

I just bought Logitech 2300 speakers and hooked them up to my mac mini (didn't work) and my ibook (still didn't work). THere is no sound that comes out and the LED stays on for about 3 seconds then fades to black. Are these not mac compatible or is there another issue?

Re: LED light fades as soon as turned on and no sound

I had the same thing happen to me. I also am using a Mac. The fuse in the woofer would blow right when I powered on.

I talked to Logitech and they said it was a 'bad ground' issue. I faxed them my receipt and they are sending me another set of speakers for free. They said I do not have to return the original speakers. I will try to let you know if the new set works.

Does anybody know how to fix a 'bad ground'?

Hi Umphreak
It is bad resistor issue on your logitech speakers, has to replace them. (or) the power for your mac mini, its not very AMP good, for them.
try in another PC and see if work fine the speakers.

I have actually lost my satellite speakers that came with the Logitech Z-2300. I am wondering what my best option is. I can't seem to find anyplace that sells these kind of speakers separately. I...


It would appear you need 2 x 1/4 inch (3.5mm) jack to RCA cables, one for each channel and each speaker, left and right, rather than just the 1 cable ("..and a mini to RCA cord...") you seem to have bought.

The Yellow and Black RCA ports appear to be the Left and Right speaker channels respectively.

The output cable with a green jack that connects to the green jack on the computer's sound card seems to be tied in with the wired Remote Control.

I would have recommended getting a pair of passive 40W RMS Logitech Stereo Speakers.

As long as the speakers you have match in terms of Wattage and Impedance, you should be okay.

I hope this helps.

I listen to my iphone on my Logitech speakers on my desk. When the volume is low, the speakers work great. However, when I turn up the volume, the green light fades, and the speakers are scratchy. Is...

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.

Can I turn the Logitech z-2300 to a 4.1 speaker system?

You will need a separate pair of powered speakers to do that, plugged separately. The quality of the sound will remain the same on the front ones, the overall quality will depend on the new ones.

I have my logitech z-2300 2.1 speakers hooked up to my imac but the sub doesn't hit near as hard as it did on my pc. have i hooked it up wrong?

Switching from pc to mac could have something to do with that. What i mean by that is the audio card inside the computer is most likely different. It could also have something to do with the equalizer settings on what ever program you are using. If it is a program with an EQ or equalizer setting try turning up 32, 64 and 125 on the EQ. hope this helps

No sound from logitech speakers, they worked 2 songs and then stop working i ve got control whit buttons on top of speaker but no sound please help

FOR MACS... Last February(08) I bought the V20 Logitech speakers for my Apple iBook laptop. I got them to work. Hadn't used them for about a year and had forgotten how to get the sound to emerge. I went to System Preferences. Clicked on Sound. I had plugged in the USB. Didn't show up. Unplugged it and plugged in again and there it was! I clicked on it and the sound came through immediately. So wait to plug in the speakers until you have opened Sound. (And Pandora (superb Internet radio station) is playing flawlessly.) I am not familiar with PCs. Sorry.

Unfortunately, Logitech doesn't sell the wired remote controller separately. And that seems to be infamous for going out.
What worked for me (with no sound and no blue light on the remote connector) was to plug a set of earphones into the earphone port. As soon as I did that, the blue light came on and the sound was restored, even after removing the earphones. Someone else said both speakers worked properly while they had the earphones in, but not otherwise.
