This sound is louder from one speaker but it's coming out the very same sound synced between all the speakers even when no input source is connected.
Does anyone know how to fix it?

I googled for hours before landing into this thread. I know it's not the best place to post but I didn't find any other active thread about the logitech z5500. Hope you'll forgive me.

Have a nice weekend you all
Thanks in advance
Andrea

Had this issue, was fixed by replacing the control pod, think there is some damage in the cable that causing the crackling

The past few weeks I've noticed my left front channel is extremely quiet. It's not the speaker itself because it it does this with other speakers plugged in and it's not the speaker wire because will also do it with different speaker wire plugged in. It is quiet regardless of what input I'm using (currently plugged into my TV using optical and has the same issue using stereo input channel aux-in from an mp3 player).

Any ideas?

EDIT: System has spring clips is that makes a difference.
Anyone have any experience with this sort of issue? Racking my brain and issue still has not gone away despite replacing wires and speakers.

Hi, after struggling to get my old z5500 pod working I managed to pick up another set from a guy at work selling his. I notice however that this is PID R028 and the pod no longer has a standby button (replaced by a headphone button). So this means that the current hidden menu key combination doest work. Does anyone know if the more recent versions of the Z5500 have a hidden menu?

Hello everybody! I'm in need of some help if any of you is kind enough to aid me.

I want to add a small fan to the back of the control pod of my Z5500, but i want to power it directly from the pod itself. I'd also want the fan to turn on and off when i turn the pod on and off. In other words, i need a 5V and Gnd point on the pcb of the control pod that gets powered only when the pod is turned on, and not in standby.

Does anybody here can supply me with a photo of the PCB indicating such a point where i can solder my fan wires?

Hi, few questions:
* My POD LCD contrast on Z-5500 went into the abyss and never returned - I guess that's control pod issue?
* with the post of the user *shb* - is it possible to use the subwoofer DIRECTLY without powering it on with a dedicated AVR? The sound of this amp is really great and want to keep it. As I plan on buying a DENON AVR-X3300W. But don't want to invest into new set of speakers considering this unit had really great sound - will this solution work?

Hey guys, i recently bought z5500 sub (with push connectors, early version) with no speakers and con unit. I tried to enable amps for testing but i couldn't quite do it, i followed one schematic soldering 6-7-8-13 pins but nothing happens, no hum, no sound whats so ever.

I noted that on main PCB board one TDA 7294 amp is missing (i think its the second one in bridge circuit for sub) does board have protection which wont allow activation of amps if one is missing ?

I also tried connecting front speakers to see if they will work but also nothing.

My question is, which schematic is 100% fool proof for activating amps ?As I plan on using sub and amps as 2.1 system, connecting my existing speakers to the sub so i will only need 2x 3.5mm jacks for fronts and sub.
