Question about Logitech Z-2300 Computer Speakers
Hello! I have a problem with my Z2300. When i turn the volume knob on the remote i hear rustling sound until i stop moving it. Does anyone know how to solve this problem ? Is there any method to open the wired remote and clean the contacts inside?
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.
