Loss of sound to Logitech Z560

I bought the 560s about 4 years ago and love them no end. However about 2 months ago i lost sound to one of the front speakers. I know that the speaker is fine but i think that the control centre may have a loose wire or something because my brother has the same system and his control centre works with my system. Shortly after this i lost sound to both back speakers. Again, i have tested the satelites and know that they work fine so i believe i need to work on the circuit board. Any ideas?` Thanx, Harlan

    I was having this issue and it got worse and worse. I finally figured out it was the cable that connects to your sound card that had shorts in it. I found a mini to mini cable, and cut it directly in half. I then split the wires out. I popped open the control pod and cut the cable right at the exit of the box. I then stripped them down and connected the new cables with some twists and electrical tape. The system actually sounds better now then it has in a couple years. :)

    Could you give a little more in depth details on how you did this? I am going to attempt this also. But I was wondering is there a difference since they are 5.1 speakers. I fixed my Z-230 by just cutting splitting wires and soldering on to a new 3.5 stereo plug I bought at Radio Shack. But what about the 5.1 speakers? I also replaced and re soldered the jack but still didn't work. So I am guessing it is a different jack that must be used or something along that line. I am trying to fix my front L+R speakers Plug.

I repaired Z-560 speakers with a defective left front channel by chopping off one of the input leads close to the 3.5 mm stereo jack that goes into the PC and joining on the leads from a new one. At first I thought the fault lay in the main amplifiers in the sub woofer unit but I was wrong and it turned out to be far simpler to fix than I anticipated.

Harlan, look for a thing called a "cold solder joint" It might be hard to see, but the solder lifted from the connection. Most likely cause, heat.

I would check the LogicTech website for a repair facility. You may want to dig a little deeper as I'm sure LogicTech does not make their own sub woofer but OEMs them from JBL, or such...
