I have put the z5500 together and gone through a lot to get as far as I have and I have hit a rather big brick wall. The problem is when I test my speakers all is good the test goes through them all and they are fine. But when I actually try and play anything music,sounds etc it only uses the sub front 2 speakers and the center speaker.
I am currently using a Auzentech HDA Xplosion 7.1 audio card there is also realtek audio on my comp already which I needed to disable to get any sound at all in the first place. I am just now rather stumped

Re: Rear speakers not working
If the test program works using a specific operating system (lets say Windows), and all speakers work.....this means the card AND the speakers are OK AND the OS allows functionality (the drivers are good). This leaves us with...what kids?,,,, that's right... the application. The program must support the use of multiple speakers. The Windows control panel has a little applet called Sound which can allow you to specify your speaker setup, which in turn will notify your apps how many speakers you have. XP uses "Sounds and Audio Devices" - "Advanced" under "Speaker Settings" Now if you are using the digital input for the speakers (I assume you are) you must enable the digital output for the soundcard. That is driver dependent, and I don't know how Auzentech sets their drivers, but check audio options somewhere, and also make sure you specify coax or optical in regards to both output of card and input of speakers. That might make a difference. Many games made today support the EAX sound extension library. It's probably best to turn that OFF in your games and set the audio renderer to HARDWARE. That should allow all of them Sweet 7.1 channels to reverberate throughout the entire building or complex of buildings. To sum it up... the application decides on the audio program. MP3 - stereo, DVD DTS or Dolby AC3 - 5.1, Extended DTS - 6.1, COD4 - The loving goodness of 7.1
Try using SRS sandbox instead of using your sound driver it uses the
SRS driver which is pretty good. I am using a creative inspire 5.1 and
supreme fx soundcard a big difference when I tried SRS sandbox

Is the power light lit up? If not, double check the AC cord is firmly in the brick adapter, and the plug is firmly in the subwoofer with the arrow facing up. The ac cord may look like it is in tight, but not be. Unplug it and replug it to make sure. Make sure the ac cord is plugged into a good power jack. If you have the brick plugged into a surge protector or power controller,make sure they are on (not off, or 'reset') If you still don't have a light, take the brick to a electronics store (radio shack, etc) and have them check the output voltage. A replacement power brick is not that expensive, especially a third party one.
if you do have the light on, try plugging them into an MP3 player, cd player, or pretty much anything with a headphone jack. Hit the vol up (+) a few times.
If they work there, it's a computer sound issue (wrong plug, muted, headphones plugged in, etc) . If it doesn't work using an mp3 player (or equivalent), you may have a bad audio cable, or the speakers may have simply gone bad.
certainly sounds like a fuse problem. First check that the fuses you have used work in another appliance. You should not have to use a fuse from the logitech company but it will be rated for your speakers so would probably be best. If the fuse checks out (both plug and amp) then check the wall socket and the power cable.
Hi , And happy new year , You speakers can be opened , but the second you open them, you will lose your warranty , if thats ok with you , then go ahead and unscrew it and get the nut back...if you dont want too lose your warranty , i suggest you leave it in there.. I hope this helped but , Merry Christmas and happy new Year :)
The same thing happened to me and i just had to reset the system by turning it off and then holding input+settings for like 5 seconds until it shows what firmware version you've got it meqans it's reseted and that should solve your problem.
To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
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.
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
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.
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
rand is not concern only the thing is it should be the same voltage type battery. first you test your remote by putting a new battrey and also chck the sensor of both the side form reciver as well as your remote. still it is not working then you have to give to service personnel.
