Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers
Hello I've got my eye on a second hand set of Z5500 speakers which are going cheap due to a fault described as "right rear speaker outlet is noisy and makes a popping sound sometimes" I understand all of the speakers are fine and the problem is wth the subwwofer. Is this the sort of thing that could prove costly or complicated to repair. Don't want to waste money if the repair is impossible/ impractical. Thanks
These are fairly pricy speakers and I would hesitate before recommending you buy them UNLESS they are dirt cheap, like $40 or less. Odds are good that the issue is related to mechanical wear like defective wiring, a jack, where the cable connects to the speakers or even a worn volume switch. The problem is that if it winds up being a defective amplifier or volume switch then your deal becomes less of one. Replacing a volume switch isn?t too hard but finding a suitable part and installing is will take some time. If that isn?t the problem then you?re left with the built-in amplifier which is not typically repairable by the average home user. Hope that helps.

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps you
