Recently moved around my room, got back to hooking up my Logitech Z-5500, plugged it in, switched on the master switch, and to no avail, the red light around the button no longer lights up. I'm sure it's all plugged in right.
Please help me ! I love these speakers and I'm supposed to be DJ'ing next week.

What I would do is look around inside and see if anything is burnt or broken, pay close attention to the heat sink area.
With neither channel working you have something that's common to both channels that is causing the trouble.
You should be able to see any fuse by looking inside, they might be covered up, but should be easy to get to.
Unfortunately I have the same problem. As an electronic engineer I suspect that the power supply part of the unit is damaged. I opened up the module (don' t try it, its a little bit tricky since there is a type of glue around the silver bezel, after you remove the 4 screws from the front holes) and did some quick static measurements with a multimeter, so far no luck. Since I am still in warranty I will try to replace the item. Hint: protect your electronic equipment with ups or surge protection devices.
The logitech z 5500 digital is very sensitive to power peaks. One of the most know problems is that the fuse breaks because of these peaks. I´ll show you how to replace the system´s fuse.
First of all, you just need to write down the specification of the system´s fuse. The system´s fuse specifications are printed in the back side of your subwoofer, right next to the subwoofer´s on/off switch. In an european system it says: "T2AH250V (Time Delayed)". If you use another power voltage (120v), it may say something different. Anyway, write it down on a piece of paper and go to an electricity store and ask for a similar fuse (It is very cheap. Not more than 1$)
-The best way to get a similar fuse would be by bringing the broken fuse with yourself to the store-
In the back of your subwoofer, using an screw-driver, un-screw the fuse´s cover and remove the broken fuse. Replace it with the new fuse, attatch it to the cover and screw it back again.
If you turn on your system now, it will probably work fine.
I use the HT-391 in my home office video studio not sold anymore but it handles 3 PCs giving them 140w of power, plus 6" active power sub has excellent bass. The wireless remote can be programmed with Radio Shack 8-in-one LCD Universal Remote. the HT-3917 is small but don't let the size fool you. It has 100w of power still not bad for small places.
For what you need to control you're better off getting the Z-5500.

You could try hooking them up to another speaker that has the input connections. I have done this before with several different speakers and daisy chained the connections with several speaker connections and they worked great. I had surround sound all over the room. You might run into a problem with the main speaker that you plug into not being able to push all of the speakers that you have but you might get lucky. Those speakers say that that carry 550 watts. I recently bought a set of speakers that stated that they push 100 watts. The sub was putting out 50 watts and the others were only putting out 25 each. I hooked up a 100 watt speaker to it and it worked. You might be able to contact logitech to get the other speaker that you need. That set of speakers looks awesome on the site. This is the specs for the other speakers
I think that this is what you wanted to know. If it was not your solution, let me know. I will help you more. I might not be understanding your question correct. I have referred your question to someone on the site that works with logitech.
