Trying to Fix My Old Logitech Speakers

January 30, 2008

My main PC has Logitech Z-560 4.1 speakers attached to it. These speakers were highly regarded when purchased (about four or five years ago) and continue to be well regarded years later (see these Amazon reviews).

Unfortunately the separate volume control unit has been a source of problems. About a year ago, moving the volume control would result in a loud static burst (making me use the PCs volume control instead of the speakers’ whenever I could). More recently the speakers have developed a tendency to emit a low crackle from time to time until the volume control is moved.

A Mahalo search revealed that I am not alone. Several posts stated that Logitech does not sell a replacement control pod, but some suggested putting contact cleaner on the volume control potentiometer.

So I ordered some contact cleaner and will give that a try.
