Popping sound coming from unit.

\015 When I go to use the unit the sound comes and goes and has a constant popping every other second.\015

Answers :

1. Check that the speaker input cable or input jack is not damaged. Do this but plugging in some other speakers or headphones into the computer and plugging the speakers into a MP3 player or cd player.

\015\0122. check device manager. This can be done in Win XP by right clicking my computer, properties, hardware, then click device manager. Alternative way to enter device manager is by clicking start menu, control panel, system (performance and maintenance), hardware then device manager.

In the deice manager window see if any question marks or exclamation points are visible.

If so, see if it the mark is for an audio device.

If it is an audio device, uninstall the device.

Next, try to install the sound card driver again. If that fails, the enter the device manager and uninstall the sound card again, restart the PC, ignore the hardware manager, and try to install the sound card driver software again.

\015\0123. If the sound card is a separate discrete card then you can power down the PC (do powerdrain procedure to drain capactors) and reseat the sound card.

Popping sounds I have had these speakers for a few years and LOVE them, but about couple years ago, I've been getting popping sounds from them.  I hate to get rid of them because I know the speakers are working fine so I've done some research and it looks like the problem is with the control center.  Logitech will not repair it and a control center is hard to come by on ebay so I have couple of questions, 1) can I repair the control center myself or 2) is it possible to replace the 6(?) pin plug
