I would definately not open up the wired remote. As for the rustling sound, I had the same problem with my set (only with a hissing sound instead of rustling). Make sure the output on your computer is all the way up, as well as the volume on whatever media player you are using. That eliminated the sound for me, but it might be a different problem alltogether.

I have the same problem and it eventually got so bad that my right speaker just died. I took my control knob apart and found that the problem was the rheostat (potentiometer). Unfortunately pugsrule is wrong and it cannot be cleaned because it is too small and it is pressed together. If yours is the same as mine, there's nothing to do other than replace the potentiometer.

If you still have a warranty don't even try to open it, send it back and get a new set of speakers. If you aren't comfortable with opening it then just find a new control pod and hope it's in good shape or just deal with the noise.

However, if you are up to it, there are 4 screws and one nut to remove. The 4 screws are under the rubber feet on the bottom side, just use a screw driver or your finger to pull the pads off. The nut is under the volume knob, you can pull the knob off easily. Once you have these 5 things off it pops right apart and the only thing left is gobs of hot glue put at the back to protect from having the wires being yanked out.

You'll have to desolder the bad rheostat and replace it but I have yet to find a suitable replacement. I will message again if I do but this is all I can say for now.

It sounds like the volume potentiometer(knob) needs cleaned up. Try using a can of compressed air to blow under the knob and clear it out. I wouldn't open the control up if its still under warranty. If its not, and you're comfortable with electronics, I'd open it up and clean up the contacts on the knob. I've been doing it for years on my guitars. Good luck...

WD 40 works great to clean up potentiometer's it doesnt conduct electricity therefore its safe.

Assuming your receiver came with the ability to be remotely controlled, then yes, a universal remote such as the Logitech Harmony etc, will be able to control the volume.

My logitech x240 surround powers on but no sound comes out....what could be the problem??


If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)

No sound


Hello endow1, hi, try this test, unplug you Logitech audio in plug and touch the input, you should hear a humming sound, Adjust the volume settings to high to hear it. If you cannot hear the humming sound, then there are problems you need to check. Place you speakers near your ear and adjust the volume Up and Down, you may hear a soft hum that should go up and down. Absence of the hum means that the speaker has loose connection from amplifier to speaker driver, or loss of power, check to see if there is pilot light.

Logitech Z-2300 subwoofer/Bass volume cannot completely shutoff


Make sure the wired remote is connected completely and if that doesn't work try putting a pillow or a pile of blankets to cover both the subwoofer driver and the air port on it and that should reduce the sound coming from it. Also if it is in a corner or on a solid floor like wood or tile i would move it to a less enclosed space with carpet or a rug. Thats all I got I hope that helps.

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.
