Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

3 Answers

Digital Sound Control Center

The Control center on my 5500 keeps dropping after a few minutes..Sometimes it powers up and immediately goes off..Or with some jiggling will stay on a minute or 2. Then I hear crackling or static from the speakers and it switches off at the control center, I called Logitech and they will not sell me a new controller. They will only sell me a complete new system... It's only a little over twoyears old..WHat a waste. The speakers are perfect, the S/W appears to be fine. I dont know if the short is there or in the controller. I suspect the latter. Logitech dont want to know. Is there anywhere I can send it for diagnosis? Wonder whats causing this....

    The Control center on my 5500 keeps dropping after a few minutes..Sometimes it powers up and immediately goes off..Or with some jiggling will stay on a minute or 2. Then I hear crackling or static from the speakers and afterwards I get no sound at all!! I press the test but on my remote and all the speakers and sub/w are functioning properly. I'll turn the power off and on and sometimes i'll get sound maybe for a minute and then the sound cuts off completely. PLEASE ANY IDEAS??????????????????/

I had a similar problem with my z5500. I would get a loud pop and my controller would shut off or sometimes it would not shut off but would not work. I contacted Logitech support through thier web site and after about a week of dialog and attempted fixes they sent me a whole new speaker system and all I had to send them was my old controller. So now I am also looking for a controller to make my old set complete again. It was pretty great getting a whole brand new system at no charge

Look under control panel for Power Management options. Adjust those to set the screen to always on when you have power and to power down after 20 minutes on battery. Making adjustments to these settings will cause battery life to drop but will accomplish what you desire as far as keeping the screen and hard drive on. Adjust the Hard Drive power settings in the same fashion.

Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.

If that dryer has a 4 wire start switch which simply twists a quarter turn to get off then replace it.

Samsung SCH A660 Keeps Shutting Off and Is Slow to Start Up

I've had my phone awhile, and it has always started slowly. It has probably been dropped to many times, or you have many recorded, downloaded, or contact files which just make it slower to start up. Like a computer. When you shut it off, keep it open until the SAMSUNG logo has disappeared and the screen is black, otherwise it might/will stay on.
