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.

Why static on motorola CLS 1110?


Are you referring to static (random snapping, crackling, popping) that only occurs when you are handling the radio, or a steady hissing sound when turned on? The first may indicate the radio has a defect or loose internal connection; the second is reduced by adjusting the squelch setting. More information is always helpful.

High pitched noise coming from speakers after installing stereo


check your wires if they are too near some big power wires and move them away from these high powered wires or check your grounds and make sure its a good ground by scrapping the connection until bare metal. Also its a possibility rca's or wires are getting pinched or not fully connected.

Pop from speakers when using dolby digital mode, works fine when not using any processing mode


Over 10 years old? Could be bad capacitors... if you have the expertise, you can try taking it apart and checking them with capacitance and ESR (equivalent series resistance) meters. Otherwise, you can try to see if any capacitors are exhibiting any "bowing" or leaking; if the top of the capacitor is bowed or puffed out - even slightly - or if there is a brown or white residue around the base of the capacitor, you can guarantee the capacitor is bad. Note that not all bad capacitors exhibit these physical attributes... but you can be sure a good capacitor won't.

If all of this sounds too complex, your only recourse will be to take it to a reputable electronics service shop.

Speaker static noise


The first thing to try is plugging a set of headphones into the speaker plug and testing, see if the crackling continues, if it doesn't it sounds like a short in your speakers (or the sound card, but my guess would be the speakers).

Post your results here so we can further assist you.

Static


Hi,

CB radios use a frequency range and technology that is prone to noises both atmospheric, and man made. The height and gain of your new base antenna may produce more static than you may have noticed before. The question is 1) is the antenna close to any power lines to your home, 2) do you notice any increase or decrease of received signals compared to your mobile, 3) is the static steady or does it come and go.

Loud steady sound when turned on


If it's a humming noise you are describing, then it may be that one of the power supply filter capacitors has failed. Of course it could be some other sort of power supply problem as well.
