Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

Random powering down of my Z-5500s?

I recently bought the Z-5500s, and just received them yesterday. They're working great but every so often at random they will just completely shut off. There's no certain amount of time in between it shutting down, I'll just be sitting here and they will shut off. I turn them back on and they work find again.

Only thing I could think of is that the power cord to the back of the sub wasn't connected properly, but a triple checked and it's not loose and it's screwed in tightly. Does anyone have any idea as to what might be causing this?

    Mine is starting to do it all the time now.

    I have the same problem.... seems to only be an issue if I turn it on with the power button though. If I use the remote, everything works as expected. Maybe someday I'll look into the warranty replacement.

    how do we know wheather the sub system has any power, because there the actual control system has no power?

    Same problem here. Checked the connections and everything is ok. It's a mystery.

    I've got the same exact problem. The z-5500s has started powering down (and up) apparently on Random.

    The only change in terms of sound rig that I've made is that about a week ago I updated by Audigy 2z drivers to the newest edition. Could this perhaps be related soemhow?

    Z5500's randomly shutting down only when using COAX input mode. I have a cablebox hooked up via Digital Coax, 1080p DVD player or Xbox360 via optical, and PC w/ Audigy2 zs via 6ch direct.

    I've only noticed the random power offs when using the COAX mode.

I have the same problem. However, I think I am outside of the warranty period. Would Logitech do anything for me?

One thing is that unless it is usb you should always have the devices powered DOWN before connecting them via" wire electric data cables". it only takes 3 static volts of electricity to damage a circuit board. when you zap you buddy when you wear sox its 20 to 30,000 volts of static electricity so 3 volts would not be known let alone felt or seen. Power down and you will be well not you .

Sony CDX-S2250s has worked great until recently when it just went totally goofy & now it wont do anything. The screen illuminates with random stuff but no buttons will work not even the cd eject &...

hello, if all the wiring and battery voltage levels check out fine then, try resetting the unit by using the microswitch behind the face unit. if this does not work then make sure that ALL the switches on the face have a definite "click" feel when pressing them down. those for "volume" and "track up/down" are known to collapse, and thus cause the microcontroller to become "confused." to solve this problem you will have to replace these microswitches. lastly an internal power supply fault or a circuit fault can also cause these problems. cheers!

Switched off at random twice yesterday and is running way slower

NP--Whenever I find that type of problem, I first suspect malware, then power or heat, and then maybe programs that just shouldn't be running.

Try running MSCONFIG. Shut down programs or utilities that you don't recognize.

Kodak dx6440 wont power up lens wont and retract

I have the same/similar problem. I could hear the camera attempting to retract the lens. Camera shut down after timeout.

Disassembled camera & found two teeth missing from plastic gear in gearbox attached to lens motor. Don't know yet if part(s) are available.

Camera had light use. Patheticly short life & that Kodak didn't use stronger nylon gears. Bought a barely use Kodak P880 recently, & the autofocus died shortly after. Web search showed others had same failure. I'll never buy another Kodak camera.

Plugged into 220V outlet by mistake! Help!

I don't know for sure, but I suspect that if you open it up, there should be a fuse near the power supply portion of the unit. It may have taken the hit for you and can perhaps be replaced easily. (As a disclaimer... be sure the unit is not plugged in when you open the case! And only replace the fuse with another of equal rating.) If it's not a fuse, then you probably smoked the primary winding of the transformer. If it got past that, you may have popped the rectifier and/or capacitor(s) in the power supply.

IPAQ RX3115 Crash

I contacted HP on-line chat and after doing a few tests they advised me to exchange it for another one with the dealer. My second one is working great. I think it might be a Li-Poly battery issue as I deal with similar issues in my business using them.
