Re: logitch Z-5500

This been solved yet?Well if not, I'd suppose it's a loose connection
within the sub woofer enclosure.About the only thing you could do is try to get it fixed like Open SKy mentioned, or if you're a do-it
yourselfer disassemble the sub and try to locate the problem.

If it isn't a loose wire I'd say it might be beyond repair, I've
taken a look within mine, but I'm guessing it's really complicated.

Hope this helps!

Re: logitch Z-5500

Hello Asab

For more solutions, I will suggest that (1) You remove the connection cable between the speaker and the control unit and cheack the contacts on the control unit and speaker then reconnet it. (2) Make sure the control unit is on and there is a link to the soket which the speaker is connected to. (3) If the problem remains, change the cable that connects the control unit and the speaker.

Hello Asab

First things first
1) Check the on /off SW. for any dust, or broken line inside. if you can. If not get it repaired from near computer shop.
2) RMS the subwoofer, if you got warranty.
3) other than that, if you can buy a new sub, you can go and buy it, of cost effective is better.
good Luck

Subwoofer problem

Hi there,

The distortion you are experiencing could be due to a few things,

Drivers for the device,ie the latest updates applied recently,
This may affect the performance of the units functionality.

The cables not being connected properly,poor signals and connections,

The source from where you original sound signals came from,
ie,over recorded source,too loud for the system speakers to reproduce the correct tones,
this is dangerous to speakers and the listerners hearing comfort too,

The simplist way to check your speakers are ok is to check them on another system with a similar sound device,or plug a set of head phones into you creative 4.1 output on a low volume,
is there a signal output to your head phones???

The most comon form of distortion is the equaliser setting on the original source output,turn it down to help eliminate the frequency your looking for and the adjust EQ to suit your comfort zone.

Apart from this will be unplug each zone and test individually,
should be a quick and painless solution,

Microphone feedback can damage speakers too,,,,,,

If the distortion remains try different speakers on the output.

Hope this helps , MISTERDJ

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.

No power in Z-5500 logitech speakers

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.

No sound coming out of z-5500

To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
