Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

3 Answers

Steady popping noise.

I have had my Z-5500 THX speakers for over a year, possibly 2. They have been great until recently. There is steady static, [a popping static sound] most of the time I turn sound on [but not always] This happens for my music players, for some e-mail video attachments and not others. Also, if the sound is turned on I get the static for other short sounds that come from the computer. The sound is there for head phones as well. HELP!! pleeezz..... ??

    Thanks, I will wait until my husband gets home to check the things you suggested and to tell me what the configuration is. Then I will get back to you, O.K.? Hopefully this delay will not mean I have to pay again for this problem. I am new to your service - can I assume that a payment is for all correspondence connected to one problem?



    So far I am impressed. - Speedy answer!

Hmm..ok..first lets check the wiring, to ensure that there are not gaps or sparking, which is what this can be caused by..then, we will look at perhaps getting new drivers,,then we will look at the sound card...need to know a bit
about your configuration for your computer though

Clearly seems like a Sound card issue, or issue with the source of the sound, generally if your using it with your computer then its clearly the sound card, are you using a build in sound card? for best results one should buy a pci sound card for example.

    for example here is a quality sound card

    Internal motherboard sound cards can cause the things your talking about or it can also be a driver issue, I myself have experienced raining like sound problem.. crackling .. on a diffrent set of drivers and on another set of drivers I don't have any problems.

I've never worked on this model so I can't give you a definite part value or location, but you'll probably find a bad filter capacitor (or possibly more than one) in the power supply. The power supply converts the AC power line voltage to the DC (direct current) needed by the electronics. If the filter capcitors don't work, the result isn't smooth and steady, and the result is an annoying hum. You're probably hearing this.

It's possible to replace the bad capacitors, but it's not always easy. The people who make computer speakers don't often design them to be serviced, and sometimes it's a challenge getting into the power supply. But if you or someone you know with some electronic soldering skills is willing to give it a try, you might be able to bring these speakers back to normal. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

This seems like at cables have gone bad or either the connections in the speakers went bad. Its best to replace them unless you know how to disassemble and re-soder the connections.

Woofer popping


Sounds like a loose connection or a blown speaker. I would try just playing around with the wires to see if you can make it pop, if so, the wire you were messing with is the most likely culprit. Also, verify the sub cone has no damage or cracks. I am betting it i a bad connection or a loose wire.

Digital out peters with odd blipping noises then stops outputing.


Hello there
First things first:

* this is a creative labs speakers models sub problem**
if you have warranty I suggest you use, Creative is alert on this kind of pop up sounds and others, concerning the subwofers.
time to RMS, or fix on house or other person who can change some resistors on the SUB.
other than this, ...just change for CREATIVE 7800 speakers, are good, and they correct this issue on this ones, I got it and I have 3 years with them and no problems.
good luck

5 computer speakers w/ subwoofer


1) Check the connections of your speaker wire at both the speaker and the PC. It's possible something might have come loose or is starting to become worn.

2) Try moving the speaker or your tower/cpu to another location, or if not, move any new accessories away from the speakers and wires. It is possible that you are getting interference from a new accessory or appliance (like printers or other electromagnetic devices).

3) Let me (us) know what the brand and model of speaker it is. Maybe there's more specific info we can provide.

POPPING NOISE


It is possible that either the speakers or the sound card have an internal fault. The best way to isolate this type of problem is to use a different audio source than your sound card uses in order to test the speakers. You can use a portable CD player, the headphone jack on your CD or DVD drive, or the headphone jack on your VCR, for example. In some instances, the speakers have been known to pick up noise from an external source. This is difficult to isolate as just about every electrical device in your house/office gives off some amount of radio frequency (RF) or electromagnetic interference (EMI) signals. Some of the more common items that can cause noise are: Your monitor Fluorescent lights An uninterruptable power supply (UPS) The computer itself Fans Turn off as many of these devices as possible before you test your speakers. Also, if your speakers are plugged into a power strip or UPS, try plugging them directly into the wall outlet instead. Good luck
