Re: No sound

General situation here, YOu have to give more details, on your sound card, sound speakers brand, if mono, or 5.1 please, for me to help you.
but a quick response, be, may be a chip on the speakers, time to change it, or some speakers have bad resistant chip that sometimes get hot, and burn, have a look or change to other speaker and test.

Change main fuse but still not working right

First of all, nothing wrong with the fuse. A fuse is nothing but a short piece of wire with a resistance value. If the unit turns on, fuse is fine. The fact that the headphones you plugged in are working tells you that the music is finding it's way up to that point. You must realize that the speakers themselves have additional circuitry that the headphones don't use. If you could obtain a diagram for the circuitry you might find that a capacitor or a diode or a transistor got "zapped" when the high voltage was applied.
If you have this diagram and you don't know what component is defective, can you post that diagram and I would be glad to help!

Logitech Z5500 5.1 speaker system Hi, Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this problem? there is no sound coming from the subwoofer or the speakers, but when I connect my mp3 player to the pod...

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.

Strange problems with Z-2300's

I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

Audio control pod

I have a similar issue too, but my problem is that the sub has green light, and my control pod has an 'off' light, but it won't turn on :(

Control pod

Double check the connections, if the connection for the control pod is good then something is wrong inside. I would say most likely thing would be a problem on the power supply inside the subwoofer box.

Dim Light on Control Pod...very low volume output

I just fixed this exact problem. There is only 1-2 volts feeding the preamp IC's pin 4 JRC 2059. Positive side of C313 should be 12v(B+ to IC's) found shorted transistor just above C313. Collector goes to V+ 15v from power supply, Emitter feeds the preamp IC's. I used a 2sc3904 (NTE123Ap) unit back up and running
