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?

My philips htl4110b soundstage speaker doesn't power on at al..i bought it just yesterday.i have checked all my connections but it doesn't seem to work

if your source is a pc the setting might not be sending sould to the speakers, to test the speakers disconnect the audio in cable and connect it to a known souce of sound such as mp3 player smart phone etc and test that the speakers work that way. if that doesnt work take them back.

Very strange fault indeed; you reports here. There is nothing more to check. See the power output plug at your home. If it has any fault, that is, if it do not fit with the power plug the device you have; this kind of fault can occur due to loose power connection. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Hi, I bought recently a new 5.1 Surround Sound System Logitech X-530 and want to connect it to our new LCD LG 32LD450 HD TV. The LG TV has apart from all Digital, Optical and RCA Connections as well one...

You can't connect the speakers to your TV. I doesn't have any audio output available, just inputs. Those are for connecting the audio from sources like DVD players, and they go in to the TV's sound system. But there's no way of getting the sound out except through the set's internal speakers. The surround system you got is great for a computer, but it's not what you need for TV use.

The only solution I can offer is the suggestion that you invest in a home theater receiver. You can get decent basic systems with the receiver (often with DVD/audio CD playback capability built in) and surround speakers at reasonable prices. Then you use that to drive the speakers, and use the TV just as a video monitor. Then you will have surround sound.

Logitech Z-5300 Turns off and on by itself

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.

Speaker buzzing at random

It sounds like the socket on your computer is becoming worn or has a loose solder joint.

If you feel comfortable with a fine tipped soldering iron and stripping your computer down I would take a look there first.

Also check the power supply for the speakers to make sure it is not getting too hot.

Z-2300 Left Speaker and port dont work

did you try plugging in the other speaker into the yellow output. If you can hear music doing that then its only your left speaker that is the problem. Try tapping the faulty speaker into the palm of your hand while connected. There might be a faulty contact to the actual cone of the speaker. I had to open mine up because i had the same problem. It turned out that it was the wires that weren't making contact. I scrapped and moved them around connected the speaker and it worked. I hope that i made some sense out of this. good luck.

Companion 3 problem

It is not the pod that isn't working, a 220v power supply would overload the circuitry in the subwoofer. And since the damage is done, a step down converter would be no help at this point. I would take it to a electronic repair shop and have them take a look at it.
