Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Using Without WIRED REMOTE

Hello Experts,
I have logitech z-5300 and for decoding i m using Creative DDTS-100.
Everything is awesome, everything is working fine but the only problem which i was aware of is the Power Button and channel volume adjustments which is on Speakers own Remote so it needs to switch on all the times.
All i want is to DISCONNECT the Wired Remote and wish the speakers to RUN without using the REMOTE with full volume output (RAW OUTPUT) to the Decoder so it can be adjusted by the decoder.
Hope you understand what i need
any possiblity
Regards

    hello Tony 


    thanks for your reply,


    let me explain a little bit more there is a SERIAL CONNECTOR at the back of SUBWOOFER suppose to connect WIRED REMOTE.
    The speakers are connected to the DECODER and DECODER is connected to the sound card's digital connection.
    you are right the way you are saying it should work but in Logitech Z-5300 you cant bypass the remote. even the standby button is on the remote if we disconnect the remote from the speaker we are not even able to switch on.
    there are 2 power switch one is at the back of subwoofer (main)  and other is on the remote (Standby button) i want to bypass the Remote so that speakers can be turn on without touching the remote so it can be adjusted by the Decoder
    hope this might clear the situation

All I could suggest is run the decoder off the line-out of your soundcard, then regardless of what the volume or power setting is to your speakers, the signal will still come through?

Try this (I hope your system is just stereo.) Buy a jack to fit the headphone plugin. The plug that into the speaker input. That should reroute the sound to the speakers.

Logitech Z-5300 subwoofer from computer to i-pod problem...


The best thing to do is to contact the manufacturers. From this i understood that your speaker system is new. You surely have the manufacturer's guarantee. So its better to contact them than to get it repaired or replaced for free. Sir please do not try to open the sub as it will void the guarantee policy.

Hope your subs come into play as soon as possible.......
All the best...

Logitech Z-5300 Turns off and on by itself


Hi...
Im not sure if this will help u but check ur Remote's power botton.
Maybe its stuck?
It happened to me before... Was wondering y it turns itself on/off and found out later that the power botton on remote is stuck.
U should hear the clicking sound everytime u turn it on or off.
Otherwise... something else is wrong with the power switch on ur remote.

Creative Inspire 5300 Volume Control broken!


For those searching the answer "How to replace/repair Creative Inspire 5300 volume control":

Its simple : looking at the back of the suboofer, the pins are as follows from top right, clockwise : LED VDD , Balance pot middle leg, GND, pots + legs, Volume pot middle leg, on switch input. Connect one pots ends to GND and the other ends to pots +, connect a switch on GND and on switch input, anode of led to LED VDD, cathode to GND (there is a 1,8k resistor inside so no external resistor needed)

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.

Creative T7900 Speakers


ODDS are slim without a connecting unit best bet to accomplish this is to get the dds-100 by creative good luck though as this item is discontinued and expensive even still to date. you will need osmething to decode the signal from the tv. a receiver with any surround capabilities will also work

Rear and Centre speakers not working


The system comes with l remote which provides controls for "Power", "Master Volume", "Bass (Subwoofer) Volume" and "Matrix Mode" . Matrix mode allows you to spread stereo sound to all speakers where your sound card may not have the ability to do so.
I find that the "Stereo Surround" setting works best as opposed to the recommended "CMSS" setting

Problem with starting the speakers

Good day and happy holidays
you have to look at back of your comp, if you has a 5.1 speaker first, like Creative Audigy, live, or X-FI, then according with the cables, colors, must be, Green . black, according for output sound, see manual for the cables and put at back according.
