My control centre dies after 10 -20seconds...display goes to a solid line and power led goes to red.

Logitech says I have to send and re-buy an an entire new system. Looks like a lot of people have he same issue. Any ideas ?

Make sure your not running analog speakers on a digital output or visa versa. check your drivers too.

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.


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!

Logitech z5500 speakers no power

certainly sounds like a fuse problem. First check that the fuses you have used work in another appliance. You should not have to use a fuse from the logitech company but it will be rated for your speakers so would probably be best. If the fuse checks out (both plug and amp) then check the wall socket and the power cable.

Logitech z5500 power problem

I replaced the fuse in the subwoofer. Solved the problem, without a hitch. Just take the current one out and bring it to an audio/hifi shop. Ask to buy a similar one.

PS. The fuse might look damaged, but then again, it might not. Have the audio/hifi guy test the current fuse, that way you know if that's the problem.
