SOURCE: no sound coming out of z-5500

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.

Logitech Z5500 5.1 speaker system Hi, Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this problem? there is no sound coming from the subwoofer or the speakers, but when I connect my mp3 player to the pod...


Try pulling the power from the unit for a few minutes, the reconnect. Make sure you've got the surround settings correct. If that doesn't do it, you've likely popped the amp or the amp's power supply in the sub box.

Control box for the z-5500 turns on for a few seconds with the screen full of black bars and shuts itself off


try a reset-- turn off the control pod and in stand by mode hold the source and the input bottons at the same time. firmware version should appear on the screen. the try using again. If that does not work call logitech for out of warranty discount on a new system.

Someone stole my sound touch control pod for my z-5500 surround sound speakers,where can I get a areplacement?


Logitech does not sell these seperately.. not in my country anyhow. You should also be aware, that there is several (at least two) revisions of these controllers, so you cant just just use any controller.. Check eBay.. and try to get one that has the same sticker on the back of the stand as yours. EG, mine is R750. Good luck!

Logitech z-5500 surround.


Hello Thimo
First things First:
1) The only thing sincerely you have to do in this cases, if you yet have warranty, is RMS the speakers, for a new one, or repair.
other than this, is a internal board power for your speakers.
good luck
