I have had this system for five years and this is my first problem with it. Help! :)
The front left & right speakers seem to be working but the back left, right, center speaker and sub woofer will not come on-line. It shows them on the front panel of the receiver (glowing red) but they do not have a white outline around then like the front left & right speakers do. When I put in a DVD it picks it up as 5.1 but it will only come through the front speakers. I've checked the speaker wires and everything looks connected. Any ideas? Thanks for the help!

Each of the five satellite speakers connect directly to an AV Receiver that you buy a separate device.
Here's the back of the sub. The sub either connects to the LFE Sub Out from the receiver to the white RCA/Phono Left Input. Or you can use speaker connection cables, AV Receiver front L & R to Speaker Level Inputs, and then Speaker Level Outputs to the front satellite speakers.
Check the speakers first. Then check the wiring. There are Front Right, Front Left, Rear Right, Rear left speakers and supply, antenna, etc are connected by one pin to a socket. Check this pin&socket for rigid connection. Unplug and replug it two or more times, so that if there is any loose contacts with this socket and pin connections will be rectified. If this does not help you, check the internal connection of this socket, This is actually a skilled work, you have to open your player. The fault is surely with this socket and pin connections itself. Work out with concentration. Check the door speakers first before doint anything further. If you fail to detect the fault, let it retified by any auto-electrician. No internal circuit fault to this set is there. OK.
It sounds like everything is working correctly to me. Voices / spoken dialogue should mostly be from the front speakers and surround audio (music, effects, etc) from all speakers.
The TV screen is in front of you so the people on the TV screen are also (technically) in front of you. Naturally, I would expect the spoken dialogue to come from the front speakers only - except in some instances, where dialogue in the movie is from a character not currently on screen. If you had voices from both in front of and behind you when the characters are only in front of you, it would be totally disorientating.
If you have audio from all five speakers during a movie then all of your connections and settings are correct. The problem you are describing is really just a description of how surround sound works.
I hope this helps. If I misunderstood the question or the problem, please let me know.
Depending on what system you have the answer could be different. I see a theatre system on screen so I will address that. You should have five speakers and an amplified woofer. Two speakers get connecte to the front left and right connections. This used to be standard stereo. Two speakers get hooked up to rear left and right. Keep in mind that they are talking about left and right from the listeners perspective. The final speaker gets hooked up to the center connection and should be placed on top of the viewing unit. The subwoofer should be connected to the subwoofer port and placed to the right of the screen from the viewers perspective. Hope this helps. Let me know.
Have a good look at your set up in regards to volume output to each channels .
you may have only one channel working due to volume turn down or a faulty connection from the console head unit .
After going through all these , i would suggest to get your sub amp checked as you may have a faulty amp .
i would recommend you ask logitech if they can fix it, if the cost is too high i would go look for other stores that fix speakers, if it still cant be fixed, your better off buying new ones because having speakers like those for 5 years is a long time, it may just be time to change
Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output
remove the front speakers cables from the rear-remove surround speaker cables from the rear and put them in the place of front speaker-run a music if you get good sound the problem in your front speakers(speaker or its cable)-if you got nothing you will have a problem in your system itself and need to fix in service center.
