Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

Logitech 5500 Surround Sound controller

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....

Re: Logitech 5500 Surround Sound controller

It 's not the fuse!!!! THAT fuse is only for SUB !!! if that fuse was the problem he wont have power at all.THE problem is with control center .I fix my control center changing 2 diodes ,but a friend of mine have exactly the same problem comming from some transistors with is located above that 2 diodes D700,D701(so he says) --- surf check google and you ll see a lot of customers with exactly same porblem AND THIS PROBLEM I THINK IS SOME DESIGN ERRORS THAT AREN'T FIX BY LOGITECH BEFORE SELLING THIS SYSTEM!!!!!!!!!

Take out the fuse and check it out... if you see the metal disconected then its the fuse.. the fuse should be in the back of the sub some where if im not mistaking.. you will need a butter knife to take it out... look close for it.. its not a acual screw its like a black peace of plastic with a grove in it to put a flat head screen driver..

Try pulling the power from the unit for a few minutes, the reconnect. Make sure you've got the surround settings correct. If that doesn't do it, you've likely popped the amp or the amp's power supply in the sub box.

When I change the fuse in the z-5500 it

at this point your hands are tied to fix these due to a capacitor failure or whatever. you can try wrapping the fuse in aluminum foil but this may cause even further problems but i have seen it work before. be sure to keep a close eye on these if this works because the fuse is ultimately a safety device.

Try to click the EFFECT BUTTON a few times to change the effect settings (see also in display) from e.g. Stereo (which uses only two front speakers) to other settings (for which some will use the other (rear/center/sub)speakers as well). Success,
