Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Sound from 4 speakers cut off..

Just put together my z-5500 system and started to play music. everything worked fine for about 20 minutes, then all the sounds diminshed from 4 of the 5 speakers. Only the left front speaker is outputting full volume. the other four have minimal sound coming out of it with a bit of static. I can go to my soundcard configuration in the sound options in the control panel and test the speakers individually. When i test my front right speaker, sound comes out with a lot of static. i do this for 3-5 more times (with static diminishing each time) and full sound comes back to all of my speakers. After about another 30 minutes or so, same problem comes back. My sound card is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102012

anyone know what's wrong? help is much appreciated.

    ALL SOUND STOPED FROM MY SPEAKERS

  • crew_acg Dec 08, 2008

    I have encounters the same issue where only the left rear plays its true output while the others are diminished and/or static. The only trouble is that I don't use it with my computer, so it is not a sound card issue. The system was working fine before using a 3-to-1 headphone splitter from my iPod to the 3-wire connection to the control pod.

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.

2006 infiniti m35 no sound from speakers


Yes an amp that is not working could cause this to happen. But I would check it out a little more because when you did the speaker test and all the speakers worked then that doesn't sound right. Find the amp and it could be just a loose connection that is giving you all these problems. Good Luck

My speakers haven't been working properly for a while and I was wondering how to fix this. They sometimes work (very rarely) but then they just cut off, the music will still be playing but I won't be


If it always works with headphone - without fail - then it is likely the fault is within the headphone socket. You'll appreciate that when you plug in headphone, the speakers in the laptop are cut off - which is a mechanical break in connection caused by the plug. Sadly, it sounds like it is staying disconnected.

Most of the sounds you are hearing good are background sounds. If you are running a surround system, you might want to try adjusting the output of your primary speakers, checking for the correct setting on your receiver, and verifying that your central audio is in the correct section ( receiver output ).

If you are not using surround sound,
Check the in-game menu (Pause) for an audio section, some games allow you to turn the character voices up and the music down. If you don't have that option, try using a new output cord from your xbox to Tv.

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...

Jensen vm9511ts cuts out


It sounds like the phone mute is going on and off, but I'm just guessing because I don't know your grounds, speaker wire hookup configuration, etc. Look at the screen when the music cuts off and goes back on and if you see a little red phone with the cross through speaker symbol (aka mute) it's probably the phone mute feature which is supposed to be hooked up to bluetooth and mute the stereo when you get a call. Like I said I'm just guessing, but if so there's a brown wire in the back that needs to be hooked up.

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes


Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
