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!

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

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.

Remote control for Z-680

I have 2 sets of speakers systems for the Logitech Z-680
Both sets included Subwoofer and 5 speakers.

Note: there is no controller on both just the speakers

I bought one set and the Controller went out.
Logitch sent me a new Z-680 system then the second controller went out but speakers work great.
1 system speakers were never used
2 system speakers used for about 4 yrs (speakers work great)

Also have 2 remotes (never used)

Both speaker systems are for sale
Remotes will sell seperatly or with systems

If in need of the subwoofer speakers must go along

Email me if interested

Control and amplification circuit boards are not recieving power

If there are no visable ways to get into the box from the back then you must remove the speaker from the from and gain access through the hole the speaker came out of. It is not too uncommon for speaker units to built this way. Good luck.
