Right speaker doesn't work

Hi, ive had my logitech Z-2300 system for about 1.5 years now. My right speaker randomly didnt have sound, so i tried plugging it into the left speaker outlet on the subwoofer and suddenly it worked. so i kept unplugging and replugging, and suddenly my right speaker worked again for like a minute, then it stopped working, no sound. And the sound wont come back.First i thought maybe dust or something but ive cleaned it, and i have all necessary drivers. Is my subwoofer defect? Can i fix it my opening it up? Please help, Alex

    I'm not sure if this is your problem, but I had the same .. first the right speaker stopped working but worked sometimes and then the left one began having the same problems ..

    The problem with my z-2300 was that my volume console cable "Loose cable/broken cable" So maybe your problem is with the cable that is plugged in into your mp3/laptop/dvd player.

    I noticed my right speaker not working, but after some fiddling around I realised that it wasnt the speaker that was the problem but the RIGHT OUTPUT from the sub (the right speaker worked fine plugged into the LEFT OUTPUT)


    What can I do to solve this problem. The system is less than a year old and I always make sure the sub never gets too hot.

I had this very same problem and I had my system for about 2 weeks. I have seen a lot of similar posts on this site so it seems that this problems happens a lot. For some reason my right speaker just stopped working so i came to this site for help. I looked at alot of posts and nothing fixed the problem. when i switched the right speaker to the left input it started to work so I knew the speakers were fine. So i finally decided to unplug everything and restart my laptop. Once my laptop rebooted I plugged the sub back into the wall after about a minute of it being not plugged in. Then I plugged all the the wires and volume control back into the sub and turned the switch back on. Make sure the volume control is down when you plug everything back in. Then plug the wire into the device, which in my case was a laptop, and start to play some tunes. Right away everything was working perfectly fine again and no problems ever since...for me atleast.

HOPE THIS HELPS

I just had the same problem minutes ago. The right speaker is out. I searched google for answers then I chose one of the results which is this page. Amazingly, I tried the solution #1 by pyro. and guess what? the right speaker went on again. But what did cause this problem? It is better that we know so we can avoid it from happening again, it might truly broke the speakers... BTW. Thank you very much!!!

You will need to take the speaker apart and with an ohm meter or continuity tester, measure the resistance of the speaker, at the two terminals at the rear of the speaker magnet, to see if that circuit is "open" ("open" is a reading of no resistance, or no continuity). If it is open, you have no choice but to replace the speaker. If instead the speaker measures a low resistance, or the meter indicates continuity (a meter might indicate continuity with a beeping sound), then do the following: measure the resistance/continuity of the wires which lead from the speaker magnet, to the output terminals on the outside of the speaker "box". Also, some speaker manufacturers install small fuses inside their speakers. Even if the fuse does not look "blown", test it for resistance/continuity. Good Luck!

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...


Hi


http://www.livedigitally.com/2005/09/05/logitech-z-2300-speaker-system/

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.

Hi,
first of all you should try with a different audio source to make sure that the problem resides in your speakers. Then you could try to move the left speaker's cable to see if that is causing the problem and fix it if you have some good soldering skills, otherwise you can just send them back in assistance since they have a 1 year long warranty.
Hope it helped,

Z-2300 Left Speaker and port dont work


did you try plugging in the other speaker into the yellow output. If you can hear music doing that then its only your left speaker that is the problem. Try tapping the faulty speaker into the palm of your hand while connected. There might be a faulty contact to the actual cone of the speaker. I had to open mine up because i had the same problem. It turned out that it was the wires that weren't making contact. I scrapped and moved them around connected the speaker and it worked. I hope that i made some sense out of this. good luck.

My right speaker from my z-2300 stop working.


sounds like a loose connection somewhere inside that particular speaker. You could open it up to check for a loose or separated solder joint. The safe option would be to return to place of purchase and exchange for a new set.
