OK this is the story. My friend gave me his Z5500. He said he lost the powercable so i don't have a power cable. When i looked in the fuse socket thing, it had a 3.15A SLOBLO 250V fuse that was blown. I replaced that fuse with a 2A SLOBLO 250V fuse that i got from the local electrical shop and i used a 13A 250V power cable from a Logitech x-540. The 2A fuse blew. I then tried a 3.15A SLOBLO 250V fuse with a 3a 250V power cable. The fuse3.15A fuse did not blow, instead the fuse from the 3A power cable blew. I then used the 3.15A fuse with the power cable from the Logitech X-540 which is 13A and thats when the 3.15A Fuse blew as well....
I don't know what conclusion to take from all this. Either the subwoofer itself is broken and busted and needs a fix, or im just not using the right powercable and fuse to make it work. Can anybody help me out with this please? I haven't had a chance to listen to them cause of these issues... Thank you very much

The rating of the power cable should not make a difference. As long as it is rated for for the normal current and voltage. Used by the Z5500.
Now look closely at the back of the speaker and find the ratings plate. For the voltage and line frequency it is designed for.
Also look where the fuse holder is. It should be marked with the correct amperage.
If your power is 220 volts. The 2 amp is proper and if it blows you have a problem.
If your power is 120 volts the fuse should be a 4 amp. That maybe why the 2 blew and the 3.15 is holding.

this is what i says on the amp concerning the fuse:
Fuse Rating T2AH 250V(2A Time Delayed)
i dont rly know wat to do... except go repair them after logitech send me their fuse, because i dont think warranty won't apply to this case...unfortunatley

Man i know your problem..i seen it many times before..Its a vibration issue the guy who had that system before you probably had the subwoofer under his computer table..What it is the vibration has shaken the hole system apart try taking it apart carefully im sure youll find either a wire off or touching somewhere...If you ever get it going place a thick piece of spunge under the subwoofer to damper the vibration plus never place it under your PC table..One thing about a subwoofer you can place it anywhere in a room why under a table
