Logitech Z2300 rustling sound on volume knob movement

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?

Thanks

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.

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.

Hi, the crackling is mostly a result from dust and debris building up on the contacts of the volume knob over the years.
You could try taking some compressed air to the space between the knob and the pod.
and
Sometimes with the power off rotating the knobs from end to end will also help.

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.

Logitech S500 Volume Knob Broken


The simplest thing to try is some compressed air directed to the knob. This would clear out any dust or dirt that may be obstructing the knob. I am not sure what you mean by power cut so I am shooting in the dark here. If you mean a power surge that caused the volume to quit working then I would suggest an external volume control such as http://www.amazon.com/Koss-155954-VC20-Volume-Control/dp/B00001P4XH/ref=pd_bbs_2/002-2257004-6895258?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1194009359&sr=8-2
