Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

Digital Sound Control Center

The Control center on my 5500 keeps dropping after a few minutes..Sometimes it powers up and immediately goes off..Or with some jiggling will stay on a minute or 2. Then I hear crackling or static from the speakers and it switches off at the control center, I called Logitech and they will not sell me a new controller. They will only sell me a complete new system... It's only a little over twoyears old..WHat a waste. The speakers are perfect, the S/W appears to be fine. I dont know if the short is there or in the controller. I suspect the latter. Logitech dont want to know. Is there anywhere I can send it for diagnosis? Wonder whats causing this....

    The Control center on my 5500 keeps dropping after a few minutes..Sometimes it powers up and immediately goes off..Or with some jiggling will stay on a minute or 2. Then I hear crackling or static from the speakers and afterwards I get no sound at all!! I press the test but on my remote and all the speakers and sub/w are functioning properly. I'll turn the power off and on and sometimes i'll get sound maybe for a minute and then the sound cuts off completely. PLEASE ANY IDEAS??????????????????/

I had a similar problem with my z5500. I would get a loud pop and my controller would shut off or sometimes it would not shut off but would not work. I contacted Logitech support through thier web site and after about a week of dialog and attempted fixes they sent me a whole new speaker system and all I had to send them was my old controller. So now I am also looking for a controller to make my old set complete again. It was pretty great getting a whole brand new system at no charge

When I turn on my Samsung LNT4669 it seems to make a clicking noise a few times, and goes on and off, on and off, a number of times (sometimes as long as 20 seconds) before finally turning on.

replace bad caps in power supply near connector going to main board (where the inputs are) or just replace power supply board p/n: bn44-00166c

The camera was dropped and the lens is extended and will not retrack. There is no control with the power switch


Try sending the camera to Panasonic Repair Center for immediate repair. They can help you repair the unit since it was hit badly during the fall.

Thank you.

How to hook up a computer sub to a hometheater amp

If you have the whole Z5500 package you could run the Arcam's optical- or coaxial digital audio output to the corresponding input on the Logitech.

But I'd be careful about letting BOTH the Arcam and the Logictech perform Digital Sound Processing on the sound. DSP's aren't meant to be stacked. My money says the Arcam is better in the DSP department than the Logitech.

If you have just the sub, run the Sub PRE out from the Arcam to the Sub/Center input (adapt it to 3.5 mm) on the Control Center and set the switch to "6 ch direct".

Center channel goes muffled after a while of use.

It is likely that something overheating is causing the problem, but nothing should be overheating. Cleaning won't hurt and may help but it is likely to require repair of the faulty component, perhaps a failing capacitor or amplifier.

Center speaker channel

This sounds like a bad connection inside the receiver. A 5 minute fix with a soldering iron and about 30 minutes to get to it.
If you can solder you should be able to fix this yourself.

Problem with optical & coaxial

Good Morning Pulpy
First things first,
1) did you have a digital Sound Card?
2) did you install all drivers on Sound Card? and set to Digital Audio?
3) your speakers are analog? or Digital Input?
do a speaker test and see if center spk. work..again.
good Luck

Popping sounds

Hi! depending on the brans speaker, dunno, sometimes the heat , or eletric changes , damage the board for the sub, this came of pop sound suddenly, you have to replace the Subwofer. in any case. the satelite speakers you can keep it.
I presumme is a Sound Blaster set?
some models of sound blaster speakers, like 5600 and others, have some problems with pop sound on the sub. keep and eye on them.
good luck
