Question about Logitech Z-5500 5.1 Digital Speaker System Computer Speakers

Open Question

Logitech Z-5500 - only stereo and stereo 2X sound - no surround

Hello,
I've had my speakers in storage for about a year and I just took them out to set them up.

I have them connected to:
Cable TV - Digital Optical
DVD Player - Digital Coax
Computer - Direct 6

The problem is I only get sound through Stereo and Stereo 2X effect. None of the surround sound (PLII Movie - PLII Music) effects work. I get no sound at all from them.
When I use the test function I also get no sound at all.

Can you please help?

SOURCE: Connect DVD Player to logitech X 540 Surround System

Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output

SOURCE: hook up z-5500 suround to a tv

The Sony has (http://b2b.sony.com/Solutions/product/KDL-46S4100)
Digital Audio Output(s): 1 (Rear) Optical Digital Output

The Logitech speakers have (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/speakers_audio/home_pc_speakers/devices/224&cl=GB,EN)
Source Inputs:
Digital optical for DVD or CD players, PlayStation®2, Xbox®**

To do this, you need a Digital optical cable--Search Googe for this: Cables Unlimited Pro A/V Series - Digital Audio Cable (optical) - 6 ft

Should work.

How to connect speakers logitech z 5500 to the TV Samsung UN32F5500 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim Smart LED


Hello there!
I have seen manuals of both the systems. You have two options to connect Logitech z5500 speakers to Samsung UN32F5500 TV.
1. With Optical Audio Cable.

0daa0bcc-2410-4f3f-9f1b-001ec53d8ec3.jpg

2. Stereo Ear Phone Connection.
Simply plug in Green earphone cable of Logitech Speakers to Green Audio out Jack described on Page 7 of the TV manual. If you are using stereo EP you may not experience 5.1sound separation. And it is also mentioned that you should not use other two audio cables of the tri-EP-cable provided with Logitech speakers.

Have a nice day!

More than likely the optical connection is defaulting to another source. The optical may have been intentionally assigned to another source and either needs to be reassigned or try switching the inputs on the unit until you hear sound...

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.

Someone stole my sound touch control pod for my z-5500 surround sound speakers,where can I get a areplacement?


Logitech does not sell these seperately.. not in my country anyhow. You should also be aware, that there is several (at least two) revisions of these controllers, so you cant just just use any controller.. Check eBay.. and try to get one that has the same sticker on the back of the stand as yours. EG, mine is R750. Good luck!

I have a x-540 speaker system I brought today. Do I need a sound card to make it work with my pc. I hook it up/no sound.


A stereo computer system with resources to produce and record surround sound channels. Such surround sound channels are played or recorded using an audio card added to the computer system, which audio card controls additional speakers and/or microphones. Software for redirecting instructions from existing stereo application programs and sending these instructions to the existing audio device driver and the additional audio device driver is needed. Resources for processing the digital audio data for either extracting surround sound channels from two channel data provided by the application, or for encoding two sets of two channel audio data recorded by the two audio cards is also needed

Well you have some options, you can either live with 2 speakers and change the settings back to default. Im assuming the colors you have are orange black and green. black= the surround sound speakers. orange= center and subwoofer. green=right left front

Now if u want true surround sound then you need to buy a new card that had all the ports for your speakers.

It depends on what audio outs your tv has. Newer TVs may have a SPDIF port on the back for audio out. Look at the connections on the back of your tv (and in some cases if you have connections on the front, check those too.) and see if any say audio out.

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,
