Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

3 Answers

The system has stopped turning on

The entire system has stopped working apparently. I've had these since last July, and they've been working fairly well until now, but there just doesn't seem to be any juice flowing through it anymore. The control panel doesn't turn on when I flip the switch on the subwoofer. I've tried changing the outlet, plugging the hooks-up back in, the whole nine yards. Is it just the end of the road for this system, and after less than a year of operation? Temperature in the room is fairly moderate and the subwoofer has plenty of space around it. What can be done?

"Even with the replacement set your warranty will still expire two years from your purchase date assuming you have your receipt. If you don?t have the receipt they can determine the manufacturing date from the serial number and will use that as the beginning of the warrantee period."
My reply to "tomj23":
ABSOLUTELY WRONG. Everything you said in that portion of your post was COMPLETELY INCORRECT. You need to do your research!

These speakers are covered by a two-year warranty from Logitech. It IS INDEED their policy to REPLACE the unit for you.

When you DO get a new unit, the warranty STARTS OVER. You get a completely new TWO YEARS from the date that they ship you the replacement.

I just RMA'd my own set that I bought nearly two years ago from NewEgg.com. The older generation had a problem where the subwoofer was not properly shielded against external interference. Mine was part of that old generation. I would get pops and hisses when I turned on devices in other rooms of my house!

Logitech gave me NO crap about replacing them. Even when I was about a week away from my warranty end date.

All I had to do was send them the control pod and the remote. They sent me an ENTIRE new set. Control pod, remote, satellite speakers and subwoofer.

BRAND NEW IN RETAIL BOX. I couldn't believe it! I now have TWO speakers in every location where before I had one. Also have TWO center channels. One on my desk and one mounted on the wall above my monitor.

What else am I to do with the leftovers? Sounds AWESOME. :)

All YOU have to do is contact Logitech tech support and start an Return to Manufacturer Authorization. (RMA.)

I'll paste to you what I put into another post I did for someone else. This includes all of the information you'll need to contact Logitech. This also tells the story of my entire experience with the RMA process. :)

I sent the control center, remote and purchase receipt with them.

5 days later, I found out DHL almost had my package here. (Although I was lucky. The turn-around time on the RMA is subject to supply and demand. I was quoted 6-8 weeks at one point due to their lot being completely empty. They are manufactured and shipped from China according to the rep I spoke with...)

My advice to you is to get right on the RMA process. Get your incident number from the Logitech rep who sets up your RMA. Get those two pieces sent in as soon as you can. Do what I did.

To do this, call the following number.

General Technical Assistance/RMA: 646-454-3200

Package the remote, control center into a box snuggly. WRITE YOUR INCIDENT NUMBER given to you by the Logitech rep on the receipt. Include the receipt in the box. Take it to the post office and send it by USPS Priority mail. Get "Delivery Confirmation" on it. All told it came to just under $10 for me.

Send it to the following address:

Logitech Incorporated
6505 Kaiser Drive
Fremont, CA 94555
ATTN: Incident Number# <put your incident number here>

You will also be instructed to send a copy of your receipt by way of fax. WRITE YOUR INCIDENT NUMBER AND PERSONAL INFORMATION ON IT BEFORE FAXING. (Or at least on a cover letter.) They're supposed to send you an email to let you know that they received the fax...but I never received one. Good thing I included a second copy with the control center and remote...because that's the one they used for processing.

FAX: 702-269-3439

I have pics of the shipping order that came on the box, too. If you would like to see this proof, let me know. I'll be more than happy to post plenty of pics that show my old set (sans the control center of course...) and the new set.

But don't delay like I did. Mine was two days away from expiration of the warranty before I sent in the parts. LOL.

And as further proof of what I'm telling you, I have pictures of the shipped product and what I received in return.

I'll post them on my server and give the link in a little bit. I'll post this for now, though. I'll be back with a link in a while. :)

Trust me on this. I just did this last month. You've got nothing to lose. :)

This is a common problem with these speakers. Turning the speakers off and on at the bass unit seems to blow the amp. If this is the cause of your problem, you should replace the fuse(type T2A)in your bass unit. This same problem has happened to me 3 time in one month!

I would connect your speaker system to another computer that has a working external sound system. If your speaker system fails to work there as well I wouldn?t waste any more time on it nor would I do anything to risk voiding the warranty. Your speaker warranty period is two years and you will want to get these exchanged as soon as possible. Even with the replacement set your warranty will still expire two years from your purchase date assuming you have your receipt. If you don?t have the receipt they can determine the manufacturing date from the serial number and will use that as the beginning of the warrantee period. Replacing them as soon as possible with give you a year to exercise them to ensure there are no hidden problems in the replacement set as well. Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Heat is a huge issue in these TVs, make sure you have adequate space around the tv and that it is fairly well ventilated.
also while changing the bulb, run a vacuum and get all the dust bunnies out of it, those can cause alot of problems with the airflow in the tv.
Lastly, make sure your fans are all running, without a working fan, the bulb will overheat and cause premature failure
