Question about Logitech Z-680 Computer Speakers

2 Answers

Z-680 optical acting very strange

I unplugged my Mac G5, where my Z-680 system had been working superbly, and moved it all into a new office, where I carefully reassembled everything. For some reason, my Z-680 now no longer produces sound. I've checked system settings, volume/mute issues, optical in vs. out, etc. My speaker test works fine; they're all plugged in and operational. But when I power up the Mac, the speakers start making weird popping and rumble noises, sounding sort of like an electrical storm. And needless to say, none of the system audio works at all through the Z-680 now. Any ideas? Could it be that my optical cable is bad? It looks like brand new, but who knows? Thanks for the help.

    I just replaced the cable tonight and yes indeed, the old one was bad after all. Everything's fine now. Thanks anyway!

I had a problem something similar - once reconnected my rear speakers stopped working, i could hear "hiss" from the speakers very low but no sound whatsoever so i tried the combination of "INPUT + SETTINGS" hold for a couple of seconds and this resets all settings plus shows FIRMWARE. all back to normal after, my rear speakers started working again. i hope this helps others in the future.

Apple mac G5 freezes when booting up.


Try unplugging all Firewire/USB devices. Also, unplug the power cord from the computer. This resets the logic board. If that doesn't isolate the problem, put your Original system CD that came with the computer and hold down the C key. Boot up and run Disk Utility. Run the repair disk and then repair disk permissions. Reboot and try booting your system again.

PowerMac G5 will not boot up fully, it makes it past the chime and acts like it is going to boot then restarts. Similar to when you zap the pram. It or may not eventually boot. When it does finally boot...


Do you have your G5 hooked up to a UPS? The symptoms are consistent with drive-spin-up current load temporarily overloading a marginal/failing UPS.

While trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.


Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards

Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5 sound output


This is just how it works. The headphone jack on Macs is dual-purpose. If you plug in a mini-Toslink cable (like you have) it automatically sends the sound through that & increases the computer's volume to maximum. When you unplug the Toslink, the laser will still shine for a brief moment (but then it does go off). So, there is no way to keep the Toslink plugged-in AND utilize the built-in audio at the same time.

Airport extreme


Try this in this order:

  1. Verify your aux on the DE675 is working with another analog audio source.
  2. Unplug the G5 -> optical -> DE675 and try playing itunes through the Extreme only into the DE675's aux.
  3. Optical digital audio output on the Mac is VERY fussy, so I'd stay off of the optical unless it's absolutely necessary.
  4. If you're finding that the Extreme is not putting out any sound at all, try this: Reset and update the firmware on the Extreme. Also, make sure your Mac is very updated with the latest iTunes, operating system updates, etc.

Mac G5 shutdown and now won't power up


Sounds like a bad power supply. They do go bad... get a new one and hook it up without installing it. If it boots your machine...you've solved your problem. That battery retains some boot info and your date/time settings.
